How to mine Ethereum Classic (ETC)?

In this guide we will show you how to set up ETC mining with minerstat.

Note It is also possible to mine ETC+ZIL on Ezil.me, please refer to this guide for that.

Pools

First, open the address editor and add a new tag (POOL:ETC) which will hold the pool's stratum address. We'll be using 2Miners pool in our example. There are several locations available, so choose one of the following stratum addresses:

  • etc.2miners.com:1010
  • us-etc.2miners.com:1010
  • asia-etc.2miners.com:1010

Wallet

In the next step you need to save your wallet address to your address editor. Create new tag (WALLET:ETC) under wallets with your ETC wallet address (starting with 0x). For example: 0x76C3cD60a941B8fcBd48c90EB6dc538d1B4A0a32

Worker's config

In the next step, navigate to your worker's config. Select a default mining client that you want to use for mining XCOIN and then use the simple or advanced configuration.

Select mining client

Click on the default mining client's name, search for ETC, and select preferred mining client. Mining clients that are grayed out are not available for your system and type of worker.
