In this section we’ll use Minergate, an easy to use cryptocurrency miner that allows you to mine several cryptocurrencies with a single click!
Step 1:The first thing you’ll need is an account on www.minergate.com. MinerGate has its own built-in wallet in order to allow users to start mining even if they don’t have a wallet address set up, so in order to protect your funds, we advise using a strong password and activating 2FA (2 factor authentication), 2FA will make sure no one can acess your funds even if they know your password. Remember, the safest place to store your funds is in your own wallet.
Step 2: Next you need to download the Mingergate software and install it, the website will detect your operating system and present you with the correct version. Install and run MinerGate.
Step 3: After you open and install the setup, you’ll be presented with the option to start smart mining. MinerGate automatically detects your equipment and chooses the most profitable cryptocurrency to mine according to your hardware, market price and difficulty. For most computers this will be Monero, so you can click “Start smart mining”.
You can choose how many cores you want to use in your CPU and GPU, if you have one. If smart mining takes you to another cryptocurrency, you can always choose monero manually, as so:
That’s it. Easy, right? Minergate prouds itself on being so! And you can use their GUI miner for other cryptos like Ethereum and Ethereum Classic. Good luck!
