How to mine Dogecoins (Installation and use)

Companies that virtual currencies They have become a fashion lately, the most popular are:

But we will focus on one especially:

Dogecoin

doge

Why does it sound like a meme to me? ee

Because it is based on the popular Internet meme «DogeWhich is a dog Shiba Inu. If you want to know more about the currency visit: Dogepedia Wikipedia

Mining on Linux (Recommended to be used on x64 systems):

To mine we must install the following dependencies:

  • build-essential
  • libcurl4-openssl-dev

On Ubuntu or derivatives (Maybe it will work on Debian):

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev screen

We download the package with the SRC:

$ wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/cpuminer/files/pooler-cpuminer-2.3.2.tar.gz

Unzip the .tar.gz:

$ tar -xzf pooler-cpuminer-2.3.2.tar.gz

Go to the cpuminer-2.3.2 folder:

$ cd cpuminer-2.3.2/

Create the Makefile:

$ ./configure CFLAGS="-O3"

Compile:

$ make

Run screen:

$ screen

Start mining !:

$ ./minerd --url stratum+tcp://dogeu.nut2pools.com:5585--userpass usuario.worker:contraseña

You have to replace «user» «worker» and «password, for this we go to the following website and register: Registration Page

Once registered, we must proceed to verify our account with the email that will reach your account. Once the account has been validated, we enter.

You will find yourself in the Dashboard, here we will enter the My Workers section, within My Workers we will create a Worker with the name and password you want. Once this is done we proceed to configure the following command:

$ ./minerd --url stratum+tcp://dogeu.nut2pools.com:5585 --userpass usuario.worker:contraseña

We replace "user" by the user you used to register in nut2pools, "worker" by the name of the Worker that we created earlier and "password" by the password of the Worker NOT of the user.

Ready! You are already mining, you can see the amount of Dogecoins mined in the Dashboard

Mine on Android:

To mine on Android we can install the following app from the Play Store:

DroidMiner

Once installed we go to the following website and register: Registration Page

Once registered, we must proceed to verify our account with the email that will reach your account. Once the account has been validated, we enter.

You will find yourself in the Dashboard, here we will enter the My Workers section, within My Workers we will create a Worker with the name and password you want.

Once this is done, we open DroidMiner.

In «Mining Pool URL» we put:

stratum+tcp://dogeu.nut2pools.com:5585

In "Username" you put your user name of the page in which you registered previously, a period and the name of the Worker that you created, Example: user.worker

In «Password» the password of the Worker NOT of the user.

In «1», select the number of cores that your mobile has.

Select the option «LTC / DOGE / XPM» and touch «Start»

Done, you're mining! you can see the amount of Dogecoins mined in the Dashboard

There is also the possibility of mining Dogecoins in MS Windows, but since this blog is Free Software, we do not put the procedure. 😉

Pss my Dogcoins address 🙂 DAQVhckjg72YsLWXTGUqzu46gbH9Phcq79

    Interesting this topic of Virtual Currencies. As I do not know anything about economics, I do not understand how they can have any value. For that you do not need a backup, say in gold or something metallic?

    I had always heard of Bitcoins, but I see that there are many more alternatives .. I will have to dig deeper into this matter to see what it is like.

    I also find that "mining" very curious. Doesn't it have a limit? Can I make money infinitely?

    1.    diazepan said

      Theoretically it has a limit. The point is that a point is reached where money can no longer be "created" out of thin air.

      Nowadays all currencies, virtual or not, are only worth something because there are people who believe that it is worth something, and accept payments in a specific currency because they believe that this money is going to be accepted by someone else to provide them with a good or a service. Pure speculation, wow.

      Here is a very good article that explains what is the main advantage of traditional currencies over virtual ones:

        "They are only worth something because there are people who believe that something is worth something, and accept payments in a specific currency because they believe that someone else is going to accept that money to provide them with a good or a service"

        Whoops! Exactly like with real coins ...
        None follow the gold standard, nor any other. The reserves on which they are based (their source of "confidence") are other currencies "supposedly" stronger ...

        1.    Fedorian said

          «Today all currencies, virtual or not ...»

          1.    Hector Quispe said

            Currently all currencies are virtual. (virtual is not purely computing)

    3.    AGR said

      Mining is the same as working for coins. You give part of your computing capacity to the cryptocurrency network, so that it can do its business, and in return they pay you with that currency. At least that is what I have understood.

    4.    FGuardia said

      Hi Elav, formerly coins were worth the metal they were made of and adulteration of that metal could lead to statewide bankruptcy and many riots. Subsequently, the coins began to be based on the gold standard, which means that each coin "is worth X peso of gold" but since the oil crisis of 1973 (when you were a kid xD 😛) the coins do not have to have a value backed by nothing, they are all speculation and "confidence that the issuing country will pay you." (This is very, very above and I do not advise you to read on wikipedia because this whole topic is written like the ass).

      Since the entire economy is now based on the dollar, the United States can finance itself at the cost of devaluing its currency to pay what it owes. What is commonly called "printing tickets." However, since the rest of the currencies are all based on the dollar, they are forced to devalue in order not to be too expensive in the market. To give you an idea, the EU, Japan and the US have been printing bills for years and years without stopping because they try to keep the currency stable ... but one day this is going to explode and you are only going to get rid in Cuba for not having an economy as such market (and it will splash you for sure).

      More or less so.

    Mining can be mined what is programmed in the coin algorithm, at the beginning many are generated with few resources and more and more resources, the limit is increasing little by little.

    No currency has a real endorsement but it is fictitious, I mean the confidence you have in the country that issued it or the organization. The dollar for decades no longer follows the gold standard and the rest either.

    I hope I don't make technical mistakes. I'm not very well versed in the subject.

    1.    pandev92 said

      It is not as well as you say, the currencies as a general rule are based on the trust factor generated by the economy of a country, but also their value is controlled by the state, a clear example was when Obama told the Chinese president to leave to devalue currencies to favor exports, or the same thing that Venezuela does by devaluing the currency. Another clear example is that in the midst of the crisis in the Euro zone, the Euro yen exchange rate fell to historical lows, everything is based on the confidence generated by the zone or country, and its economic support.
      Bitecoins is based simply on whether users want it or not, the interest that they put on them is not comparable to a real currency.

    Only two doubts: 1) The algarisms that we are going to solve to obtain these Dogecoins are used for what? 2) Is there a graphical interface for KDE?

    1.    Karlisle said

      If they work, for many things ... investigate 😀
      and I wonder why you want a graphical interface?

    Wow! Much Money, So Rich

  5.   HaPK said

    I have been mining Dogecoins for a while, but using cgminer instead of cpuminer (taking advantage of the fact that I have an AMD GPU: D) [many coin, so rich, much crypto]. If you want, I can explain how to mine that way.

    By the way, don't you know of an easier way to have a Dogecoin wallet on linux without having to download and compile from Git directly? I wish there was a repository ... Ah wait, cross that out, I found an XD repository https://launchpad.net/~cwayne18/+archive/doge

    It is a fun thing to get money "out of nowhere", but when compared to traditional currencies it is not worth much ... The only thing one can hope is that the cryptocurrency will appreciate or ... wait for traditional currencies to devalue. I just wait for the day when we no longer depend on some type of currency to live (or that cryptocurrencies are the only ones with any real value).

    From my point of view as an observer, all the currencies of today, whatever it is, seem to me that they are supporting more in the economy and productivity of the country or group, so the United States that produces and imports goods of very fast interest is highly valued for being a market that generates profit

  7.   elav said

    Another point or question that arises to me. How many online stores have the purchase implemented with this type of currency? Where could I buy for example with Dogecoins?

    1.    petercheco said

      It is not in which stores you can buy with dogecoin .. The key is to exchange Dogegoin for Bitcoin and then you know .. Either you buy in stores with Bitcoins or you transfer them to your bank account: D.

      1.    petercheco said

        You can convert Dogecoin to Bitcoin here: https://bter.com
        It is the one that I use without problems

  8.   petercheco said

    Here is one thing missing .. Install the dogecoin wallet on your system. So I put a tutorial ...:

    Debian / Ubuntu / Mint:

    sudo aptitude update && sudo apt-get install libssl-dev libdb-dev libdb ++ - dev libqrencode-dev qt4-qmake libqtgui4 libqt4-dev libboost1.48-dev libminiupnpc-dev libminiupnpc8 libboost-system1.48-dev libboost-filesystem dev libboost-program-options1.48-dev libboost-thread1.48-dev libboost-chrono1.48-dev build-essential git

    git clone https://github.com/dogecoin/dogecoin.git
    cd dogecoin /
    sed -i 's / -mgw46-mt-sd-1_53 // g' dogecoin-qt.pro
    sed -i 's / -mgw44-mt-s-1_50 // g' dogecoin-qt.pro
    qmake USE_UPNP = - USE_QRCODE = 0 USE_IPV6 = 0
    make

    And voila 😀

    openSUSE:

    zypper in libopenssl-devel boost boost-devel git libdb-4_8 libdb-4_8-devel libqt4-devel

    git clone https://github.com/dogecoin/dogecoin.git

    cd dogecoin /

    sed -i 's / -mgw46-mt-sd-1_53 // g' dogecoin-qt.pro

    sed -i 's / -mgw44-mt-s-1_50 // g' dogecoin-qt.pro

    qmake USE_UPNP = - USE_QRCODE = 0 USE_IPV6 = 0

    Before putting the make command it is necessary to modify the MAKEFILE. In the INCPATH part, add at the end of the line this: -I / usr / include / db4.8

    make

    And voila 😀

    1.    soymicmic said

      What is the portfolio for?

      By the way in Debian running and "mining" 🙂

      1.    petercheco said

        To have your coins on your pc and not in an internet hosting 😀

    2.    Javier Yañez said

      You know that when executing the commands

      sed -i 's / -mgw46-mt-sd-1_53 // g' dogecoin-qt.pro
      sed -i 's / -mgw44-mt-s-1_50 // g' dogecoin-qt.pro
      qmake USE_UPNP = - USE_QRCODE = 0 USE_IPV6 = 0

      this pops up:
      -e expression # 1, character 1: unknown order: " "
      in each of the commands.

      and then when executing the "make" I get this:

      *** No target was specified and no makefile was found. High.

    I do not know this specifically, but the point is that Bitcoins specifically already go for SLI of up to 4 cards if I did not read correctly because mathematical problems evolve and it is increasingly difficult for the PC to solve them ... in my modest opinion the Hardware cost plus current spent in the process is not much above the value of whatever currency you are going to get.

    1.    nemecis1000 said

      That problem is solved by PPC
      http://www.peercoin.net/

  10.   Championship said

    With the last command I get this:
    "./Minerd: unsupported non-option argument 'user.worker: password'

    PS: I replaced "worker" "password" and "user", but obviously I can't publish them. What happens?

    1.    IvanLinux said

      Sure you weren't wrong?
      $ ./minerd –url stratum + tcp: //dogeu.nut2pools.com: 5585 –userpass user.worker: password
      Remember that there are the –url and –userpass arguments

    2.    Javier Yañez said

      on the registration page did you create your worker the right way? I did it without any problem

  11.   cat said

    Mining ... thanks for the contribution.

  12.   likewho said

    wow much coin
    such doge very profit
    so crypto wow

    In Arch Linux you find the package in AUR.

  13.   Javier Yañez said

    Excellent tutorial now for every time I want to start mining again I have to do each of these steps or where can I start from.

    and what can I buy with this crypto currency?

    1.    cat said

      It is exchanged for bitcoins, you can exchange bitcoins for dollars or in some places you can use it.

    2.    cat said

      If you want to mine again you go to the folder, execute screen and write the long command that includes your user, your worker and the worker password.

      1.    Javier Yañez said

        ok

        Thank you

  14.   Mou said

    How do you generate the public address?

  15.   snock said

    In coin address that is put?

  16.   Allan herrera said

    Excuse me, but the link to the registration page does not work, could someone pass me the URL PLEASE?

    I believe this information is out of date and / or the nut2pools «site» is dead! An update would be awesome but if the nut2pools «site» no longer exists I guess the point is moot!
