Dual mining: How to mine ETH+ZIL with lolMiner

In this guide we will show you how to set up dual mining of Ethereum and ZIL on minerstat.

1. Pools

First, open the address editor and add a new tags (POOL:ETH) which will hold ETH stratum address and (POOL:ZIL) will hold the ZIL stratum address. In this example, we will use Ethermine and Ezil.me:

  • ETH: eu1.ethermine.org:14444
  • ZIL: eu.ezil.me:5555

2. Wallets

In the next step you need to save your wallet addresses to your address editor. Create new tag (WALLET:ETH) under wallets with your ETH wallet address and tag (WALLET:ZIL) with your ZIL wallet address.

3. Worker's config

Open worker's config and select LOLMINER as a default mining client.

4. LOLMINER config

Make sure you are running the latest version and that your minerstat software is up to date (msOS is automatically updated and for Windows you need to use the latest version). minerstat support both JSON and CLI versions, but latest lolMiner only works with CLI version.

Click on [Advanced] tab and update the mining client's configuration so that it will be defined as:

--algo ETHASH --pool (POOL:ETH)⁣ --user (WALLET:ETH)⁣ --dualmode ZIL --dualpool (POOL:ZIL)⁣ --dualuser (WALLET:ETH).(WALLET:ZIL)⁣ --worker (WORKER)⁣​ --enablezilcache 1
Important Keep in mind that lolMiner 1.43 supports only CLI version of config and standard JSON config won't work.
