With the expected and anticipated launch of Victorium Coin imminent, set to release this Saturday January 20th. Many people are wondering just how to mine this new coin on launch day.
Victorium Coin is a new ethereum fork so your typical ethereum miners will work such as Claymore and eminer. We’ll walk you through some steps so you’ll be able to mine Victorium.
You’ll need a mining program that works for Victorium Coin:
I would suggest using Claymore’s ethereum miner. It’s what I personally use and if the need arises the staff can help you on our discord.
Extract the zip to your desktop so you now have a folder that looks like this:
Creating a Victorium Wallet:
Download and install the Victorium Wallet from their website here.
Start the wallet, it will sync then allow you to create a new wallet, copy your wallet address, it should look something like this: 0xd05ad5F477C7c417710204915D126136c7ed9808
This is a vital piece of information, DO NOT LOSE THIS or your keystore (which is available if you click File > Backups > Account. You will need this information later to access the funds in your Victorium Wallet).
Creating the Command Line for Claymore:
Luckily we’ve made this really easy. JustHash has a simple claymore miner command line generator you can use. All you need to do is click the link and enter the details we ask for and it will generate the command line you need.
Paste the command line into one of the bat (batch) files:
You’ll now need to edit the bat file in your claymore folder so that way we can start mining. To do this go to your claymore folder, find the “start_only_eth.bat” file, right click, and click edit.
We’ll now be presented with a window that looks like the following. We’ll want to remove the contents and paste in our own. To do this highlight everything and hit backspace, then right click and click paste.
Now all we need to do is save that file and then double click to run it!
Congratulations! You’re now mining Victorium Coin!
You can check your miner statistics and how much Victorium Coin you’ve mined by going to your selected pool and finding your Victorium wallet address under the “Miners” section.
