29 Jan 2017

You can also mine Zcash through a cloud mining contract with Hashflare or Genesis Mining.

PascalCoin is an "easy to understand" and "easy to work with" Crypto, because it is very similar to a bank. Using "easy to remember" accounts instead of cryptographic address's, and everybody will need to have a personal account to receive/send coins. Its name is "Pascal Coin" due it's written from the scratch in Pascal language.

Following the addition of PascalCoin to the popular multi cryptocurrency exchange, Poloniex, PASC has been heavily traded and its price has risen over 15000% in the last 2 weeks. PascalCoin has become one of the most profitable cryptocurrencies one can mine with his graphic card.

As so, we want to show all our users and fellow GPU miners how to get some PASC with their AMD graphic cards. Keep in mind that this is a solo guide. To see a pool mining guide, click here. Also, PascalCoin will not allow you to create an address of your own until you find a block, so if you do, you can later use that address to pool mine or you can use an address from an exchange like Poloniex.

Alternatively, you can also mine other PoW coins through a cloud mining contract with Hashflare or Genesis Mining.

Step 2: Now, open the text document and paste the following command:
Pascalcoinminer.exe -p 0 -d 0,1,2
Note that the -d 0,1,2 is relative to the number of GPUs you have. We only have one at the moment, so we’ll use -d 0.
Step 3: Now, go to “File” and click “Save as

Step 4: Set the file name as “Start.bat(1) and change the type to “All files(2) and click "Save(3)

A new file will be created, a batch file.
