How to mine ZCash with GPU on Windows. ZCash mining guide.

Hello, few days ago was launched new cryptocurrency - ZCash. ZCash provides even more anonymity than other cryptocurrencies and got lot of other interesting features. That's why ZCash became really popular right after release. And that's why I've decided to write a ZCash mining guide. In this article I'll tell you how you can start ZCash mining with your graphic card (GPU).

How to mine ZCash with GPU:

It's pretty easy to start ZCash mining with GPU - all you need to do are: select mining pool, then download mining software and tune it.

ZCash mining pool:

In this Guide I'll show you how to work with mining pool - https://zcash.flypool.org/.

ZCash Mining software:

For AMD graphic cards download - Claymores Zcash miner.
For Nvidia graphic cards download - EWBF Miner.

Next you need to configurate mining program you've just downloaded.

ZCash mining settings:

Find the ".bat" file in the folder of the mining program you've downloaded and edit it:

For AMD video cards set:

ZecMiner64.exe -zpool eu1-zcash.flypool.org:3333 -zwal t1YZMnyXStuGKykkFxM6Lh8DTVJdTMx6R51.YourWorkerName -zpsw x

For Nvidia video cards:

nheqminer.exe -cd 0 -l eu1-zcash.flypool.org:3333 -u t1NF6yLUxAAttibU8mzfX86o8aWLcqF38DX.rig1

Set your wallet address instead of t1YZMnyXStuGKykkFxM6Lh8DTVJdTMx6R51.

Put this settings into ".bat" file and run it. Mining is due to start.

To see your mining stats go to the https://zcash.flypool.org/, enter your ZCash wallet address into the special field at the top right corncer of the site and press "Check Status".

if ZCash mining doesn't starts try to run ".bat" file multiple times - sometimes it helps. Also try to run it as Administrator and check if your antivirus blocks mining program.

This is how you can mine ZCash with GPU. If you have any questions leave it in comments below.
