1. Node & Client wallet configuration

1. Firstly, you have to download the node and the client wallet.

2. Then launch the node first and wait for it to synchronize

3. Launch a command prompt and go to the folder where the mwc-wallet.exe is located

4. Enter:

mwc-wallet.exe init

5. Once your wallet created, open your files and go in:

C:\Users\YourUser\.mwc\main

6. Open the file mwc-server.toml

7. Search:

enable_stratum_server = false

8. Replace “false” by “true”

9. Save the file and close it as well as the node and the wallet

10. Reopen the node and wait for it to synchronize

11. When the node is synchronized, launch a command prompt and go to the folder where the mwc-wallet.exe is located

12. On your command prompt type:

mwc-wallet listen

2. Miner configuration

13. Now, you need to download the miner

14. Open the file of the miner and create a text document

15. Type that to mine on the cuckaroo D29 algorithm:

miner.exe — algo cuckarood29 — server 127.0.0.1 — port 3416 — user YOURUSERNAME

or that if you want to mine on the cuckatoo 31 algorithm:

miner.exe — algo grin31 — server 127.0.0.1 — port 3416 — user YOURUSERNAME

16. Now do “save as” and type miner.bat
