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 can choose one of three cryptocurrencies for payouts: Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), or Nano (NANO). Payout fees in ETH are high (up to $8), payout fees in BTC are low (less than $0.5), payouts in NANO are absolutely free ($0). Read our post How to Get Payouts for Ethereum Mining without Fees.

For each of the coins you could use the desktop/mobile wallet or generate an address at a crypto exchange.

Step 2 - Download mining software

Quick start - Download ready to go version of the GPU Miner (archive password - 2miners).

For Nvidia GPU's we recommend T-Rex (Guide - How to use T-Rex) or GMiner (Guide - How to use GMiner).
For AMD GPU's we recommend lolMiner (Guide - How to use lolMiner) or GMiner (Guide - How to use GMiner).

Step 3 - Edit the bat file

Use YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS that you've created on Step 1.
Example ETH: 0x00192Fb10dF37c9FB26829eb2CC623cd1BF599E8
Example BTC (Legacy): 1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa
Example BTC (Compatibility): 3GRdnTq18LyNveWa1gQJcgp8qEnzijv5vR
Example BTC (SegWit): bc1qnkyhslv83yyp0q0suxw0uj3lg9drgqq9c0auzc
Example NANO: nano_14uzbiw1euwicrt3gzwnpyufpa8td1uw8wbhyyrz5e5pnqitjfk1tb8xwgg4
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
