What’s going on everyone welcome Rabid here and today I’m going to be showing you guys how to mine Iron Fish using Hero Miners. We’ll also be going over their ten thousand dollar USD airdrop, zero percent pool fees, and the new GUI wallet.
To start mining Iron Fish, you’ll need a wallet. If you’ve been following my previous node videos, you probably already have a wallet from the CLI wallet. However, now there is a GUI wallet available. You can download it by clicking the link in the description and then extracting the setup.exe file. After that, you’ll have the option to import or create a wallet.
If you choose to create a wallet, you’ll be given a mnemonic seed that you need to write down and keep secure. Alternatively, if you already have a CLI wallet on the test net, you can import your private key or mnemonic phrases. You can also upload your Json file, which can be exported from your CLI wallet.
Once you have your wallet set up, you can open the GUI wallet and access all its features. You can switch between dark mode and light mode by clicking the respective button. The main thing you need from the wallet is your address, which you can find by clicking on the “receive” tab. There are other parameters listed as well, but for now, let’s focus on the address.
In the GUI wallet, there’s a message saying that you’re required to download the blockchain snapshot. This may not be necessary at the moment, but depending on when you’re watching this and if you need a wallet in the future, it might be a good idea to download it. The blockchain will likely be much larger by then. If you choose to download it, simply click on the link provided.
In the GUI wallet, you can also see your node stats by going to “Your node.” This will show you information about your connected peers, bandwidth usage, and node resources.
Now that we have our wallet address and a user-friendly GUI wallet, let’s look at how to mine Iron Fish using Hero Miners. However, before we point towards Hero Miners, we need to set up a miner.
Based on my previous testing, I recommend using BZ Miner for mining Iron Fish. Once you download BZ Miner, you’ll need to run it as an administrator. To do this, right-click on the BZ Miner executable file, go to “Properties,” then “Compatibility,” and check-mark “Run this program as an administrator.” This will ensure that the overclock settings work properly.
Next, you’ll need to create a bad file for Iron Fish. By default, there are multiple bad files in the BZ Miner folder, depending on the coin you’re mining. To keep things organized, delete all the other bad files and create a new folder specifically for Iron Fish. Open the Iron Fish bad file and edit it accordingly.
The bad file will have some default settings, but you’ll need to adjust them for your setup. The first thing you’ll need to do is enter your wallet address. Replace the four zeros with your actual wallet address, which you can copy from the GUI wallet’s “receive” tab. If you want to add a worker name, you can do so by adding a period and then your desired worker name.
To find the stratum you want to mine to, you can visit the Hero Miners website and choose the closest stratum server to your location. In the bad file, replace the default stratum server with the one you selected. Make sure to include the port number as well.
Next, you’ll need to add your overclock settings. If you have previous overclock settings that you used for solo mining, you can copy them over. Otherwise, you can adjust them according to your GPU and preferences. These settings will help optimize your mining efficiency.
The overclock settings consist of the lock-in core clock, core offset, and lock-in memory clock. You can adjust these values based on your GPU model. The goal is to find the optimal settings that maximize your hashrate while maintaining stability.
Once you’ve made all the necessary adjustments to the bad file, you’re ready to start mining Iron Fish using Hero Miners. Save and exit the bad file, then run the BZ Miner executable file. If you set it up correctly, the miner will start running and you’ll be able to see your hashrate on the Hero Miners website.
It’s worth mentioning that Hero Miners offers a ten thousand dollar USD airdrop, which is a great incentive to start mining Iron Fish with their pool. Additionally, they have zero percent pool fees, making it even more profitable for miners.
In conclusion, mining Iron Fish using Hero Miners is a great way to earn cryptocurrency. With the new GUI wallet and user-friendly mining software, it’s easier than ever to get started. Remember to download the blockchain snapshot if needed and adjust your overclock settings for optimal performance. Happy mining!
In this article, we discussed how to mine Iron Fish using Hero Miners. We started by setting up the GUI wallet and obtaining our wallet address. Then, we explored the features of the GUI wallet and learned how to download the blockchain snapshot if necessary. Next, we looked at the various parameters of the bad file and how to adjust them for mining Iron Fish. We also discussed the recommended overclock settings and the importance of running BZ Miner as an administrator. Finally, we highlighted the benefits of using Hero Miners, such as the ten thousand dollar USD airdrop and zero percent pool fees. Mining Iron Fish is a great way to earn cryptocurrency, and with the user-friendly tools available, anyone can get started.
