How to dual mine ETH and TON with TeamRedMiner?

In this guide we will show you how to set up dual mining of Ethereum and TON on minerstat. Keep in mind that it is required to have sufficient enough of VRAM on your GPU for such mining to work. You can find current DAG file sizes on our DAG size calculator.

About dual mining In dual mining two coins are mined at the same time at different pools of your choosing. The coins don't have to be of same algorithm, but to be able to dual mine, your mining client needs to support dual mining.

1. Pools

Notice Currently this mining client only supports some pools for mining TON, i.e. icemining.ca or toncoinpool.io, both of which don't require registration, while some others do.

First, open the address editor and add a new tags (POOL:ETH) which will hold ETH stratum address and (POOL:TON) will hold the TON stratum address. In this example, we will use Ethermine and Whales TON pool (requires separate registration in it's telegram bot):

  • ETH: stratum+tcp://eu1.ethermine.org:14444
  • TON: stratum+tcp://tcp.whalestonpool.com:4001

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:TON) with your TON wallet address.

3. Worker's config

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

4. TEAMREDMINER 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).

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

-a ethash -o (POOL:ETH)⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ -u (WALLET:ETH).(WORKER)⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ -p x --ton -o (POOL:TON) -u (WALLET:TON)⁣⁣⁣⁣ --ton_pool_mode=icemining -p x --ton_end
