At the moment, this coin is just a solo mining only space. This implies that you will just be mining using your own wallet and that means using the Smartcash wallet, with a tweak of Smartcash.conf settings and SGMiner.
STEP 1 :
Download your wallet on this link https://smartcash.cc/get-smartcash/ and just make it run for it to be able to update its settings with the current block.
STEP 2 :
Step two, download the SGminer variant need to mine this coin https://github.com/genesismining/sgminer-gm/releases at the time of this post current version is SGminer GM 5.5.5 simply extract the zip, then goto the folder.
STEP 3 :
Time to join the miner with the wallet and make it work, go to the following path on your computer C:UsersyourusernameAppDataRoamingsmartcash change yourusername to your computer user name. even if you cannot see the AppData path as it is defaul hiddden in Windows 10, you can goto the path by typing it in.
Once you have gotten to the smartcash path, we need to creat a .conf file, which will have the setting we need to make the wallet work with the gpu miner as a server.
The easiest way is to copy a .conf file from the SGminer directory, then edit it and rename, then you do not need to worry about trying to make one using notepad.
So to do this we went to our SGminer path were our GPU miner is and copied the sgminer-xmr.conf file now we past this file into our C:UsersyourusernameAppDataRoamingsmartcash path, and edit the file by choosing open with and selecting notepad, make sure the tickbox is unselected we do not want this file associated with notepad.
Once the file is open for edit we want to delete everything in it, and then add the following lines in only.
Make sure to change the rpuser= to your username that you used in the SGminer setup and do the same for rpcpassword to the same password as used in the sgminer setup from above.
Once the file is looking like the above, click save and exit. now select the file and rename it to smartcash it will now be smartcash.conf.
Ok we are nearly there, one last step, and i am not sure why it is required, but i followed the instructions from the smartcash community and it works for me.
STEP 4 :
Download curl https://sourceforge.net/projects/curlforwindows/files/?source=navbar and extract the files.
STEP 5 :
Step 5 bringing it all together, exit the Smartcash wallet, for the moment. as we are going to begin the start up sequence to begin mining.
Lunch the Smartcash wallet (wait for it to sync)
Go to the curl directory and run the curl application
Now launch sgminer by running the “Start.bat” we edited before, this will launch SGminer.
After a few seconds maybe a minute it will look similar to this:
Which is 250 SMART.
The following is what the miner looks like once you have mined more then one block.
I would suggest for those that want an easier way, then wait until pool mining is available.
