How to Mine Shiba Inu SHIB with Your Computer in Under 5 Minutes in 2021

A Step by Step Guide to Pool Mining Shiba Inu SHIB Coin in 2021 with a CPU!

Sometimes mining can seem to be too complex for the average computer user, so I thought about putting together a quick guide to get you excited about mining cryptocurrency and Shiba SHIB in particular.

Anyone can start mining Shiba Inu with any computer in under 5 minutes with this guide, regardless of your technical skill level you will be able to increase your crypto knowledge and start mining SHIB with your CPU today!!

If you are having any difficulties, please join me on discord so I can help you further

STEP 1: Get yourself a Wallet.

I recommend you installing Metamask as a Chrome extension, you can get it at metamask.io

Make sure you connect the Binance Smart Chain network to metamask (Google the instructions...) or get them from this link: Binance Academy

You could also get Exodus or Atomic Wallet for you to get some other coin addresses without any hassle.

Select the Binance Smart Chain in Metamask and copy your address.

STEP 2: Download XMRIg from Github

You could go to the xmrig site to download the latest version or from the oficial github repository:

https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig/releases

Once you download the latest version you would have to edit a file named "pool_mine_example.cmd" Inside this file you need to modify 2 lines.

It could look similar to this:

cd %~dp0
xmrig.exe -o rx.unmineable.com:3333 -u SHIB:0xe1b2456a2Ad227b93D7a7421f1E9Cc57908cC37c.wini3#e4xd-wmzl -p x
pause
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

In the second line after the -o you can see the Pool URL, in this case all you have to do depending on your location is to use one of the following URLs (select the one closer to your location).

USA: rx-us.unmineable.com:3333
Europe: rx-eu.unmineable.com:3333
Asia: rx-asia.unmineable.com:3333

Then, the third line is where you will enter your wallet's public address (copied in STEP 1), place it after the SHIB: and before the first dot "." .

The general structure of the address needs to be:

[COIN]:[Wallet address].[workerID]#[Code to lower mining fee]

The workerID is any name you want to give to each computer where you are running the miner so it can easily be identified later on under the pool stats.

The code after the # is important because mining with that code will drop the Mining Fee from 1% to 0.75% (it makes a difference). You can start mining using that code e4xd-wmzl

You also need to edit the config.json file and update the Pools object to look similar to this using your details:

"pools": [
        {
"url": "rx.unmineable.com:3333",
            "user": "SHIB:0xe1b2456a2Ad227b93D7a7421f1E9Cc57908cC37c.wini3#e4xd-wmzl"
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Run the pool_mine_example file as an administrator.

XMRig Mining

If everything goes well, you are now running XMRig and are mining. Congrats !!

Step 3: Log into Unmineable to check your stats

Unmineable.com is a mining Pool which allows you to mine with your CPU using RandomX and pay you in any coin you select.

Unmineable Site

Remember when you set up the address inside the XMRig config file ?

Well, there you just let Unmineable know the coin you want to be paid in, in this example SHIB and then the address where they will transfer the mined coins.

In order to check your balance, log into Unmineable and then select the coin you want to mine. In this example, SHIB.

Then you can select the Tab that reads RandomX and enter your address in the box that reads "Enter your address to check your stats:".

After doing this you will see the balance on your account and you will even be able to request a payment.


Congrats, you are a miner now!

I recommend downloading some software to monitor the running temperature of your CPU, a good and free one is Hardware Monitor.

Try not to exceed the temperature more than 90 degrees celsius. In case you are mining with a laptop, change the thermal paste of your CPU, get it cleaned inside, and get some heat extractors for laptops.

If you take care of the temperature your computer should work very well, the amount of coins you can mine will depend on the hashrate of your CPU.

Remember to use a valid address for each coin, for example if you want to be paid in ADA then you need a valid Cardano blockchain address. In this example Binance Smart Chain is used and you would receive a SHiba Inu token on the BSC blockchain.

About how long after setting it up can we expect to see SHIB in our unmineable account?

Hi mmmous,

Usually it takes like 10 mins top until you can see the worker listed under the stats in the RandomX tab in Unmineable. Once you see this you know the connection is working and it's mining.

Then the balance will start increasing, sometimes for me I have to check let's say every 15 mins so I can see an update in the balance.

Hope this helps, happy to help!!

Have been running for 30 minutes, not sure if it is working or not. It appears to be, but unMineable shows no stats?

Thread Thread

after 30 mins you should see the stats, what is your public wallet address and which coin are you mining ? SHIB ? sometimes SHIB takes a bit longer.

Are you using XMRig or the unmineable software ? can you share some logs ?

I just checked bscscan.com and your address seems to be a valid Binance Smart Chain address.

In unmineable there's no activity. It's weird because after 30 minutes you should see some balance, I could think maybe the address in the miner is not set properly "SHIB:0x02e54BbB8EF5eA2bFBf6c2160D1025701aAC1F00.WOKID#REFCODE"

Apart from this, do you see in the miner's log it says accepted shares ?

XMRIG Unmineable logs

If there's nothing wrong with the miner and your address , could be Unmineable not reporting yet, I see they changed the minimum payout threshold, but apart from that is unlikely because my balance is updating.

Interesting, ok thanks - here is what I have in the rig:

Rumzy, this worries me because your setup looks ok. Maybe try to change the Pool from US to EU just to see what happens.

Also in the logs if there's no error message you should see Accepted. It means the Pool is accepting your shares therefore will pay and you should see some balance update.

If you press H in the XMRig window, what is the hashrate that you can see in the logs.

Mine in one of my weakest CPUs shows an average of 1700 H/s. I guess if you have something like 50 H/s then it would take a lot of time to show some balance.

Sorry I am new to this, not sure which number I need to look at but it ranges from 244.7 10s H/s to 263.8 15m H/s

Currently now have 14/0 accepted

Hi Rumzy,

Try with another coin, get a Tronlink wallet for Chrome, then take the address from there and try to mine TRON TRX.

TRX:[Address].[wrkrID].[Ref Code]

See what happens when you mine a different coin, try with a different version of XMRig, try with the unmineable software directly or you can also try with Awesomeminer or any other miner which supports RandomX.

Take a look at the instructions at the end of this post: dev.to/courseprobe/how-to-stake-tr...

Curious why this is limited to cpu? Is there a way to modify to use a GPU power?

Collapse
courseprobe profile image
Course Probe Author • Edited on

Hi EL3MEnT1,

Short Answer: Yes, this can also be done with GPUs.

Long Answer: When I wrote the guide I thought about keeping it very simple and easy for users which are starting, If you want to give it a try with GPUs all you have to do is:

Modify the Pool URL following the below:

8GB Cards mining Ethash use: ethash.unmineable.com:3333
4GB Cards mining Etchash use: etchash.unmineable.com:3333

The rest should be the same as the instructions in the Post, you are just using a different algorithm instead of RandomX. So in unmineable you have to click on the tab for the algorithm Ethash or Etchash.

The mining software I recommend would be Phoenixminer or Teamredminer (AMD cards) and TRex (Nvidia cards) , the config files for this miners should be something similar to the XMRig ones, you have to use the Pool URL from above and then set your Addres in the format explained in the post.

I hope all of this helps you and I'm happy to help if you have more questions, thanks a lot for the comment by the way !!

is HiveOS only for ETH mining? They say daily can mine 0.00176 ETH and minimum pay out is 0.1 ETH, so it takes 57 days to finish that...

Or can HiveOS let you mine anything like DOGE, CAKE, SHIB... and with unmineable(is it good?)... look like there, people can get 8 DOGE per day and the minimum payout is 30 DOGE, so it takes only 4 days.

Hi Sunflower, you can use any OS to mine the coins available in Unmineable.com connecting to the Unmineable pool.

Most people uses Windows since they are beginning and is easier to setup XMrig for CPU mining and Phoenixminer for GPU mining.

Okay, you are awesome. Thank you for making this guide.

Im running the CPU now at 5587 H/s, no idea if that is decent on an LHR

Two questions:

I have a 3080 LHR, unfortunately, EVGA FW3, and would like to mine GPU, I see you have an 8gb option but is there a 10 or even12gb option? Do you know if its possible to do the dual mining trick with xmrig? What would you recommend?

Can I run this file two times from the same folder with a GPU and CPU setup? Ive only ran nicehash before and was able to but didnt want nicehash to be profiting from my little attempts at mining.

Thank you for your time.

Hello and thanks for the tutorial. I unfortunately am stuck at editing the XMRIG .bat file ..... there isn't one. The file in question to edit as per your instructions is 'pool_mine_example', but the folder only contains a .cmd version.

I am not sure if this is because of the latest version of XMRIG being changed somewhat, in this case for 64 bit Windows on the github.com site.

I would greatly appreciate assistance here! Thanks. Attached is folder contents.

Course Probe Author • Edited on

Hey Joe, try to go to github.com/xmrig/xmrig/releases

You have 2 options:

Option 1: Create a start.bat file (You can call it differently and you can even have one for each coin).

If you decide to create the file then you have to include in it's contet something like this:

xmrig.exe -o rx.unmineable.com:3333 -a rx -k -u COIN:YOUR_ADDRESS.WORKER_NAME#e4xd-wmzl -p x pause 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Option 2: Download the MSVC version.

From the Github relesases page the file I downloaded was called: xmrig-6.15.2-msvc-win64

That file is detected in chrome as dangerous, I downloaded it anyway and I set some exclusions in Windows defender to avoid it to block the file etc.

In there you have additional files with some examples, you just need to set the details according to the instructions of the post and it should work.

Hope it helps, let me know if you have more doubts. Happy to help !!

Hi Could you download the ebook and get my email which is at the end of the book, I'll be able to help further via email.

with the MSVC version you should see a Pool_mine_example file, which I think is a .com executable and you can edit it. otherwise you can use the Unmineable software directly, I wrote some instructions in my last post.

I will probably write more guides with the unmineable software since you don't have to install and config anything. Hope it helps.

Fantastic post. Thank you. I'm up and mining. Just a couple questions, can I mine more the one crypto at once, or can I mine just one at a time by changing the code in the file? And do you know of a website that would give you an approximate time it takes to mine each coin? Thanks sgain!

Hi Gary, You could mine 2 coins at the same time if you are mining one with CPU and another with GPU for example, and you would need to run the Unmineable software and another separate miner.

The calculation you could get it from the unmineable site, it's a box in the middle right once you click the tab for the algo you would be using.

XMRIg is only for CPU. I would recommend run the unmineable program directly there are instructions on other posts,

Hello thank you so much for this guide it was easy and helpful. My only question is about payouts. After I meet a certain threshold do I just click payout? How would I view the SHIB on my metamask wallet? I currently have the payout address to the binance smart chain you had us set up in step 1 but that only shows BNB.

Thank you again!

Hi Sitti,

Great, you are almost there. Before requesting payment add the Shib token to metamask, you can click on the bottom in meta it says add token, then get the contract to Shib in this page: bscscan.com/token/0x2859e4544c4bb0...

Be careful to change the network in the unmineable site to BEP20 before requesting payment. More questions is easier to help you over Discord.

Cheers.

I have followed each step suggested in this article, but I am getting the error write_error: "software caused connection abort".

"pools": [

"algo": null,
"coin": null,
"url": "donate.v2.xmrig.com:3333",

I have replaced the url and user with my wallet address in the config file, but still no luck. Config file after changes:
"pools": [

Hi Staish,

Try to locate a file in the folder which is the "start.bat" file, modify it's contents to pass the parameters there instead of using the Config.js file (this was also giving me some issues).

Below there's an example of how mine looks:

Example

Hopefully passing the parameters directly there will solve the issue, if you want to for example modify the number of cores or threads your processor uses then in the config file leave the Pool connections detail as default and modify the RX line like the below:

"cpu": {
"enabled": true,
"huge-pages": true,
"huge-pages-jit": false,
"hw-aes": null,
"priority": null,
"memory-pool": false,
"yield": true,
"asm": true,
"argon2-impl": null,
"astrobwt-max-size": 550,
"astrobwt-avx2": false,
"argon2": [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7],
"astrobwt": [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7],
"rx": [0,1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ,6]
}

In this case I'm using 7 threads out of 8 in my processor. If you want to use only cores for example then just use [0,1,2,3] . Play with this because using threads for me lowered the hashrate , when I set it to use all available cores made a big jump in hashrates.

Hope this helps you Satish, please let me know if you could make it work, if you have more questions I'm happy to help you out !!

As suggested, I passed the parameters in the start.bat and executed the start.bat file, but still getting same error.

Even I tried by replacing WIN with SHIB, but still didn't work. And also I tried with rx-eu and rx-us and still failed.

Not sure if I have downloaded the correct file. Kindly let me know if I am using incorrect file. I am using the downloaded file "xmrig-6.15.2-msvc-win64.zip" as I am using Windows OS.

Kindly suggest.
Thanks.

You could try running the file in Administrator mode.

Double check you have the right address for the right blockchain, using WIN with the address on the example you provided before wouldn't work since you would need a Tron blockchain address to receive WIN.

In the CPU Mining book you can find my email at the end, if you write directly there I could be able to assist further. Try to send some info on your processor and mother board.

Keep an eye on this profile , I'll write a guide using the unmineable software directly, if XMRig keeps giving you trouble you could try that one. I'll try to publish it on Monday. Sorry to hear you are having these issues Satish.

Recomend to use your GPU instead depending on the DAG size as ethereum is the most profitable you will get more shib earned. XMR is one of the least profitable coins to mine with a CPU currently better off mining another CPU coin and just swap it to SHIBA.

Jump into discord so I can help you further, all the miners (XMRIG,Teamredminer,Trex for example) have what is call a Dev Fee, which means is the way to help support the development of the software, it works by taking some times and donating like that, so it should after 30 seconds change back to for example: rx.unmineable.com:3333

Hi,
So a few things:
On the Unmineable window it shows me at 0 Mh but I says I have a SHIB balance of 11.26575220 so I'm a little curious as to if I'm doing something wrong for the speed to not be showing.
And I just wanted to verify, as I'm unfamiliar with this process - as far as taking the mined coins once I hit the threshold, requesting payout will then have the SHIB transfer from my Unmineable acct to my Metamask wallet?
Lastly, when I enter my address on BscScan I get an overview and a $0 with a transaction history showing "There are no matching entries" - I'm assuming that means that my address is valid/entered correctly and just that, at this time, there haven't been any payments sent out?

Collapse
courseprobe profile image
Course Probe Author

Hey Cpaez,

Thanks for the comment Bro,

Checked everything for you, your address seems valid in BScscan, it shows 0 because at the moment you hold no coins (soon to change).

Once you reach the threshold, you need to request the payment in the unmineable site, make sure before hitting the button that you select the network (yello button) change the network to BEP20. Then they will transfer the coins to your wallet, it will take 30 seconds or so.

Your current hashrate is around 2700 H/s.

If there's anything else I can help you with or you just wanna chat, join the discord. Cheers.

Can you use any gpu to mine or does it have to have at least 4 gb? Or can you use older gpus?

Hi Jbrio,

The GPU has to be at least 3GB to mine with the Etchash algo, and at least 6GB to mine with the Ethash algo. The Ethash algo would pay more in my experience.

Cheers.

Thanks! If you have older gpus, is it that you can't mine at all with them? I would think they would be better than the cpu in most cases.

Hi Jbrio,

You can mine RandomX with GPUs, the performance is terrible though. You would need to download the Cuda or OpenCL plugins for XMRig. I setup a GTX 750 1GB card to run the example for you.

I downloaded the Cuda plugin, I placed the files in the same forlder as my miner, then added --cuda to my Start file after my -u address.

Take a look at the screenshots below so you can see the Hasrates for the CPU and GPU and compare them:

XMRig Nvidia Cuda Running Details

CPU: 1617 H/s
GPU: 66 H/s

With GPUs is better to select Ethash (>6GB) or Etchash (>3GB) and mine with those.

Where can I find a guide for this set up you mention above and consider I have a 3080 FTW3 LHR (hoping for the bypass mine two at once trick), while running the CPU xmrig.

Something is not reasonable in unmineable: "Auto pay every 12 hours (starting at 00:00 UTC) whenever the balance is over 1500000 SHIB"

It gonna take years to get to this amount of SHIB... 1.5M
Any idea?

Hi Gal , yes, the recommended way is to go BEP20 I mena using metamask with the Binance Smart Chain network so the payout is only 250k. On top of that optimizations need to be placed on your hardware, you can add more workers or even a GPU. PM me in the Discord for setup and help (Pixel2dNewbie) discord.gg/KNwsgX7uN5

I just started mining on my PC, and it looks like it is working on the XMRig. I go to unmineable to see my stats and nothing shows up there. The address I used in the rig is the smart chain one I created for mainnet on MetaMask, I search it up though and nothing.

Never mind, I figured it out.
Thanks for the guide!

So I set everything up and it seems my laptop is mining but after an hour I did not see anything on unmineable. I read through the thread but still nothing.
cd %~dp0

You should never mine through unminable. You better mine XMR yourself take the 40% extra mined qty and exchange yourself. Unminable is a rip off

Hi Weffke,

Appreciate your opinion, yes sometimes there might be a cut, other times when I have ran calculations I only lose like 2USD so still makes sense for me, it's a matter of personal choice, sometimes what I get is convenience.

So for people like yourself who want to get the most from mining makes no sense and that's valid, if you have other exchanges you can do the swap yourself like with Binance paying less fees.

Cheers.

True,

Anyway if you want autoexchange i would suggest miningpoolhub, they only charge 0.3% if i'm not mistaken, they don't have shib tho.

Just FYI

Hey mate,

I really like your walk through and am using my laptop to mine Shib now.

What I am struggling with is the BSC (BEP20 / BEP2) and how to set this up exactly. I am in the US and know it needs more steps to get things going. I have created a metamask and binance wallet to connect but still not able to figure out how to get it to send it my actual wallet. I have a voyager wallet and an exodus wallet but struggling on how to set them up through the BSC.

Could you give some advice please?

Hi Terro,

I'll try my best, if it's still not clear join the discord so we can chat and exchange screenshots.

I have the Binance Wallet for Chrome, in there I have a BEP2 Address, so when I mine BNB in Unmineable and select the BEP2 network that's where I send it to, the address start with bnb.

Now If I want to send those BEP2 BNB to the BSC I just enter my BSC address which I get from the BSC network connected in Metamask (starts with 0x), the Binance Wallet will tell me it is a Cross Chain transfer and will send BNB from the BEP2 to the Binance Smart Chain BEP20.

Latelly I just use the BEP20 (Metamask) since Unmineable can pay using the BEP20 for BNB and other tokens like Shib, so I don't do Binance Cross Chain transfers anymore.

Cheers.

Hi Mark,

Yes, it will work in any country. Good thing about Canada is the low temperature, your hardware will just run super cool.

Great article.. just wonder what are the hardware requirement (CPU, GPU, RAM) for mining SHIBA.. and others..

Collapse
courseprobe profile image
Course Probe Author

The better the hardware the more coins you get since you have higher hashrates, there's a calculator in unmineable if you know your hashrate. 5 GPU could be close to 190k coins a day.

Hi Jenuel,

The amount of coins mined, depends on factors like your hashrate (GPU or CPU) , current price in the market and others, join the discord to chat about it.

Hi Pete Rinzel,

It shouldn't be, You should change it. Your start.cmd file should be looks like below. You need to run start.cmd file.

cd %~dp0
xmrig.exe -o rx.unmineable.com:3333 -u SHIB:YourPublicWalletAddress.PoolName#egsb-gnob -p x

Hi Pete,

This is because you have to use the config.js file to set the address of the Pool.

What is the code to enable Cuda?

Collapse
courseprobe profile image
Course Probe Author

Hi Kelley,

If you mean enabling cuda in XMRig, you have to download the cuda plugin and keep it in the same folder you have XMRig. I would recommend though using the unmineable software so you use it for GPU and take more advantage of the GPU.

for more instructions and trouble shooting join the discord please.
