Update April 24: the new (and much faster) mining software requires you to have a CPU with the AES instruction set. Not all CPUs have this. If the new miner doesn’t work for you, use this one instead.
UPDATE April 23: New CPU miner! Double the mining speed! Source code is here.
Download the mining software and unzip the zip file. Some virus software flags miners as a virus, you may need to add an exception or whatever depending on what antivirus you use.
You’ll need to edit the
start_mining file and replace the wallet address with your own address.
To edit the file, right click and select
edit. Replace the long string of random looking characters (the wallet address) with your own wallet address.
You can get a wallet address by running the Adolfcoin software (instructions here), or if you want to quickly get up and running simply generate a wallet address online first and you can import this into the Adolfcoin software when you get it up and running (you won’t be able to spend your mined coins until you run the Adolfcoin software, but you can still mine them without it if using a pool)
You can now go over to http://fluffball.zapto.org/ and paste in your wallet address to see your mining progress.
Making it go faster or slower: edit the
start_mining file and increase the number at the very end of the line (currently 4) to however many cores your CPU has. If you want to use your computer for other tasks you may want to reduce this number.
Post your hash rate and your type of CPU here. I need more data points to see where I can make further improvements.
