In this guide we will show you hot to set up ETH+ZIL mining via Nanominer with minerstat.
The same process applies to ETC+ZIL, RVN+ZIL, CFX+ZIL and ERGO+ZIL. You need to make sure that you're using proper combination of coin, pool stratum address and wallet address for each of those coins.
For this method you need a primary pool where you mine most of the time and secondary pool where you mine ZIL. We're using Ezil.me in this example.
First, open the address editor and add a new tag (POOL:ZIL) which will hold the Ezil.me stratum address. There are several ports available, so choose one of the following stratum addresses:
Second, make sure you have a pool for ETH saved under (POOL:ETH). In this tutorial we'll be using the already pre-defined pool, Ethermine.
In the next step you need to save your wallet address to your address editor. Create new tag (WALLET:ZIL) under wallets with your ZIL wallet address (starting with zil) For example: zil1wvl33k4ld3grp0qmg88fxk3mka90pg7ckrjnc3
Create another tag (WALLET:ETH) under wallets with your ETH wallet address (starting with 0x) For example: 0x03E49A6f9e87Edd5933cEF2640B9ceC1827B36A1
In the next step, navigate to you worker's config. Select nanominer and then use simple configuration for the initial part of configuration. You will need to use advanced config to add the ZIL mining options.
Here we need to select the following:
Now, click the pencil button below the coin, pool and wallet selection menus to edit the config that simple editor has generated in advanced mode.
Let's add our ZIL part of the configuration. Using the tags we created, add this to the end of the configuration line:
Here's an example of the complete ETH + ZIL mining config:
Now you've setup the advanced configuration. Most of the time, the miner is going to be mining the main coin on the main pool you've selected and will switch to mining ZIL on ZIL pool once the round for it comes, switching back when it's over.
To monitor specifically your ZIL mining stats, you can open the pool's website and lookup it as following: 0xffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff.zilYourZilAddressHere, for example: 0xffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff.zil1wvl33k4ld3grp0qmg88fxk3mka90pg7ckrjnc3
