I will try to expose step by step, from 0 to 100, the way of mining without difficulties POLY in SUPRNOVA Pool using a NVIDIA GPU. For this tutorial i will use a software called Ccminer.
First of all, i advance that i am not a native English speaking guy, so i beg your pardon if the constructions of my sentences are a little bit weird. ;)
1.- INSTALL POLYTIMOS WALLET
Go to https://polytimos.net/
Then select the Windows wallet link (if you use WIndows OS, of course)
Then click "Download" button and you will get an exe file.
Copy de file whenever you want. I advise to create a folder with the name Polytimos and put inside of it everything related to this coin: wallet exe, mining softwares, etc.
Run the exe file and you will open the Wallet. At first, there is only one wallet address and the wallet will be out of sync. Wait til the wallet is synced with the net.
Go to "Receive" section and you will see there your receive address.
You can create as many addresses as you want. Each one can be renamed to what you want. In my case, i have created one for each Pool i am registered.
2.- GET CCMINER
There are a lot of Ccminer versions. Each one is focused in a different algorythm. Some versions supports several algorythms.
The version that i think is more optimized for NVIDIA gpus is Polytimos Miner V2. You can find it in the following link:
Once the zip file is downloaded, unzip it to the folder that you want. I advise to unzip it to the same folder where you have the desktop wallet. I usually create a different folder for each miner softwares i download.
3.- CONFIGURING CCMINER
Now that you have the exe in the folder, you will need to create a .bat file that will send the configuration and the commands to the ccminer.exe file.
I recommend to create a different .bat file for each Pool you are registered.
Create a new text file inside the folder. Don´t rename yet to .bat extension. Leave it as an .txt file. For creating a new text file, make "right-click" with the mouse over the window of your folder and in the menu that appears, click New and then click Text Document.
4.- CONFIGURING SUPRNOVA Pool
Now it is the time of selecting the Pool where you want to mine POLYTIMOS.
I will use Suprnova pool. It is where i get the higher number of coins per day at the moment. And it also gives you a lot of information.
If you are not already registered there, you will need to Sign Up.
Once you are registered, you will need to create a worker for the pool and a password for it.
Go to the left menu "My Account", then go to "My Workers".
Create a Worker Name and give it a password. Don´t confuse Worker Name with your pool username.
The last step is to create the .bat file.
Type in the following text:
ccminer -a poly -o stratum+tcp://poly.suprnova.cc:7935 -u username.worker_name -p password pause
Replace username, worker_name and password words with your owns.
Save the text file, replace the file extension .txt to .bat and thats all.
Now double click in your .bat file and a new window will appear with the info about your mining.
I show what i got. I am mining with a 1080 Ti and a 1050 Ti graphics card.
