By default or if in doubt which share difficulty to choose, choose the lower one. We recommend the high share difficulty if you mine with more than 500 GPU's. If you mine using Nicehash you should always choose the high share difficulty. Share difficulty doesn’t affect miner rewards. Read more.

Step 1 - Create a wallet

You could download the wallet with complete blockchain: official local GRIN wallet or Grin Plus Plus.

Attention! It is mandatory to always keep your local GRIN wallet online to receive the payouts from the pool.

Step 2 - Download mining software

Quick start - Download ready to go version of the GPU Miner (archive password - 2miners).

For Nvidia GPU's we recommend GMiner (Guide - How to use GMiner).
For AMD GPU's we recommend lolMiner (Guide - How to use lolMiner).
For Nvidia and AMD GPU's we recommend Bminer (Guide - How to use Bminer).

Step 3 - Edit the bat file

Use YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS that you've created on Step 1.
Example: grin188kxu9vjtq82zrnz03xjtc6up6vsnpgf5s2h9vywsteek0c2958stvxzz9
If you want, you can Change RIG_ID in the bat file. Specify the name of the rig as you want it to be shown in miner's statistics page. This field is not mandatory. You could leave it empty.
Length of RIG_ID - Maximum 32 characters. Use English letters, numbers and symbols "-" and "_".
Example: rig-1
