By default or if in doubt which share difficulty to choose, choose the lower one. We recommend the high share difficulty if you mine with more than 500 GPU's. If you mine using Nicehash you should always choose the high share difficulty. Share difficulty doesn’t affect miner rewards. Read more.

Step 1 - Create a wallet

You could download the wallet with complete blockchain: official Monero or generate an address at a crypto exchange, for example Bittrex, HitBTC.com or Gate.io. Wallet address with Payment ID is no longer supported!

Step 2 - Download mining software

For CPU's and GPU's we recommend XMRig miner.
Quick start - Download ready to go version of the Miner (archive password - 2miners).

Step 3 - Edit the bat file

Use YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS that you've created on Step 1.

If you want, you can Change RIG_ID in the bat file. Specify the name of the rig as you want it to be shown in miner's statistics page. This field is not mandatory. You could leave it empty.
Length of RIG_ID - Maximum 32 characters. Use English letters, numbers and symbols "-" and "_".
Example: rig-1
