08 Nov 2017

 

Pirl is a PoW cryptocurrency based on the Dagger algorithm. It can be mined by itself or dual mined with other cryptocurrencies. The purpose of this tutorial is to demonstrate how to get started and setup to mine Pirl, we will be using Claymore Dual Miner (AMD + NVIDIA) on a Windows 10 (64x) based operating system with NVIDIA graphics cards.

Part 1: Create a Pirl wallet

Step 1: Go to Pirl wallet website (https://wallet.pirl.io/) type a password and click on “create new wallet” button (Password must be 9 characters long and you can click the eye to view the exact password, don’t forget to save it!)

Step 2: Download the KeyStore File (This file contains ALL your information for your wallet address and must be taken care of, Do not lose it! It cannot be recovered if you lose it.)

Step 3: Once you have save the (UTC) file, Click on “I understand. Continue.” button

Step 4: In this page you will be able to see your private key, you can also print a “paper wallet” that also contains all your information and can be used as an alternative to your Keystore file to login and access your account. It’s suggested to print a paper wallet which will hold your public address and your private key, print and put in a safe place (in our case, we'll just save our private key on our UTC file for now)
Then, Click on “save your address

Step 5: Now you need to choose how would you want to access your wallet, we chose “private key”, so we just need to copy and paste the key, which we saved before, and press “unlock

Now you just need to scroll down a little bit and you be able to see your account information. For now, we just want to know our wallet address

Part 2: Download and setting up Claymore Dual Miner

Step 1: Download Claymore Dual Miner from Bitcointalk
note: It seems Google blocks some files, use  this MEGA link if you cannot find the latest version, if you choose to download from MEGA, you will need to double-click on the latest version as seen in the image below

Step 2: Unzip the file

Step 3: Once you have unziped the file, search the folder for the “start.bat” file, right click on it and press “edit

Step 4: Replace all the information in that file for the one below:

EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool stratum+tcp://pirl.minerpool.net:8004 -ewal YOURADDRESSHERE -epsw x -allpools 1 -allcoins exp -gser 2 -eworker rig1

Change “YOURADDRESSHERE” for your Address (Part 1, Step 5)

Step 5: Save the file.

(Note: You are not stuck with pirl.minerpool.net, a list of pools can be found here: https://pool.pirl.io/)

Part 3: Start mining

Step 1: Double-click on the Batch file you just edited, "start.bat"

That’s it! you are now mining Pirl!

(You can dual mine with Siacoin, Decred, Lbry, etc; Claymore will show that you’re mining “ETH” because the algorithm is the same. Don’t worry, you’re mining Pirl)
