Tutorial - Ethereum + Pascal GPU Mining GTX 1080

Create a new account on the Minergate website to become a member of the mining pool

We are going to use MINERGATE to mine ETHEREUM.

We are going to use NANOPOOL to mine PASCAL.

On the Linux console, use the following command to update the package database.

# apt-get update

Download and install the Nvidia GTX 1080 GPU driver.

# mkdir /downloads/driver –p
# cd /downloads/driver
# wget https://developer.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/9.1/Prod/local_installers/cuda-repo-ubuntu1704-9-1-local_9.1.85-1_amd64
# dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1704-9-1-local_9.1.85-1_amd64
# apt-key add /var/cuda-repo-9-1-local/7fa2af80.pub

Download and install the most recent Nvidia GTX 1080 patch.

# cd /downloads/driver
# wget https://developer.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/9.1/Prod/patches/1/cuda-repo-ubuntu1704-9-1-local-cublas-performance-update-1_1.0-1_amd64
# dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1704-9-1-local-cublas-performance-update-1_1.0-1_amd64

Update the apt-get database and install the CUDA package.

# apt-get update
# apt-get install cuda

Edit the .bashrc file from the root user and add the following lines at its end.

# vi /root/.bashrc

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/cuda-9.1/lib64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export PATH=/usr/local/cuda-9.1/bin:$PATH

Now, you need to reboot your computer.

# reboot

As our last step, download and extract the Claymore Dual GPU Miner software.

# mkdir /downloads/miner -p
# cd /downloads/miner
# wget https://github.com/nanopool/Claymore-Dual-Miner/releases/download/v10.0/Claymore.s.Dual.Ethereum.Decred_Siacoin_Lbry_Pascal.AMD.NVIDIA.GPU.Miner.v10.0.-.LINUX.tar.gz
# tar -zxvf Claymore.s.Dual.Ethereum.Decred_Siacoin_Lbry_Pascal.AMD.NVIDIA.GPU.Miner.v10.0.-.LINUX.tar.gz
# rm epools.txt dpools.txt

To start the Dual Ethereum and Pascal GPU mining use the following command, as an example:

# ./ethdcrminer64 -epool eth.pool.minergate.com:45791 -ewal virtualcoin.videos@gmail.com -esm 2 -epsw x -dpool stratum+tcp://pasc-eu1.nanopool.org:15555 -dwal 368ea6a2e22e2609 -dpsw x -dcoin pasc -allpools 1 -ftime 10

As a requirement, you need to change the username virtualcoin.videos@gmail.com from the command above to your username.

Keep in mind that the username virtualcoin.videos@gmail.com was used only as an example.

As a requirement, you need to change the Pascal address 368ea6a2e22e2609 from the command above to your Siacoin address.

Keep in mind that the Pascal address 368ea6a2e22e2609 was used only as an example.

The computer was able to obtain the following Ethereum hashrate: 21.01 Mh/s

The computer was able to obtain the following Pascal hashrate: 210.35 Mh/s
