Mining is core part of decentralized blockchain currencies, such as Dogethereum. Miners are those who creates new blocks, process transactions in network and receive reward for this work. Base reward for created block is 3 DOGX coins. Because there were no premines or ICOs, developers earn 0.3 coins per mined block. Also miner gets award for block uncles and gas, spent for transaction.
There are 3 ways to start mine:
- Mine on CPU. It’s slow but possible way at the beginning of Dogethereum project, while difficulty is low. The only software needed for this is official GETH application.
- Mine on GPU. Graphic chip mining is recommended way for EThash algorighm which empowers Dogethereum. In addition to your Dogethereum node started with GETH, you need software from third parties, i.e. Ethereum compatible GPU miners.
- Mine in Pool. When difficulty rises and it’s harder to create block, join Pool to share mining power and split mining reward. Detailed info how to join pool read in Dogethereum official thread on bitcointalk.org. Software and guides for starting own pool can be found in Downloads page on our website dogethereum.net.
