Dual mode fast start

CPU+GPU dual

You can use nanominer to mine Monero coin and Ethash / Etchash / KawPow / Octopus / Ubqhash / Cuckaroo30 / RandomX / Verushash and Autolykos algorithms at the same time without any performance losses. Pascal is CPU designed coin, so it won't disturb GPU mining performance and can be a pleasant bonus for your mining.

Bellow you can find a configuration file example for Ethereum and Monero coin:

[Ethash]
wallet = 0xffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff
rigName = rig1
email = someemail@org
pool1 = eth-eu1.nanopool.org:9433
pool2 = eth-eu2.nanopool.org:9433
pool3 = eth-us-east1.nanopool.org:9433
pool4 = eth-us-west1.nanopool.org:9433
pool5 = eth-asia1.nanopool.org:9433
pool6 = eth-jp1.nanopool.org:9433
pool7 = eth-au1.nanopool.org:9433
[RandomX]
wallet = 48fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff
rigName = rig1
email = someemail@org
pool1 = xmr-eu1.nanopool.org:14433
pool2 = xmr-eu2.nanopool.org:14433
pool3 = xmr-us-east1.nanopool.org:14433
pool4 = xmr-us-west1.nanopool.org:14433
pool5 = xmr-asia1.nanopool.org:14433


Zilliqua dual 

Since version 3.3.0  there is new type Dual Mining available. We introduce Zilliqua mining. This is Ethash based coins also, but because of coin features, it has only several POW blocks within 1-2 hours. This mean, you can start mining Ethash / Etchash /  Octopus / Autolykos  coins while there is no Zilliqua blocks. Miner will switch to Zilliqua task automatically when it will be provided by pool.


There are 2 categories of ZIL pools:

1. Pool with authorization

You need to register and start mining for a unique identifier for your account. Setting up the coin you want to mine takes place inside the pool interface.

Examples:

[ethash]
wallet = KrVKZTU6ki3PNNZPwm47ZvioNvjnkbn8NNa ;your ID
zilEpoch = 0
pool1 = eu.ethash.k1pool.com:5000

2. Pool without authorization

Some of pools have only ZIL coin available, some of them have options for dual mining. You can chose the way you would like to mine. For example, you can start mining of ETH on Nanopool, and ZIL on Rustpool. 

When mining Zilliqa on a different pool, nanominer will use a placeholder 0xffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff ETH/ETC address to authorize on Zilliqa pool.

Almost all Zilliqua pools work in dual with ETH / ETC and require you to provide two wallets at once. Most coins have uncompatible with ETH. Therefore, you have to send some. We desided to use parameter "0xffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff" instead reall wallet.
 Some pools require both wallets to access stats, so you need to put a place holder and your real Zilliqua wallet like on the screenshot bellow:

Examples:

Ergo (nanopool)  + Zilliqua (ezil.me)

Here you can see separated way of dual:- 1 pool - 1 coin.

[autolykos]
wallet = 9he6BZYMN8FMKxYKsqPvQJ6fbNar4bWuhJsR9JJt4x9Z6fiqSo1
[zil]
wallet = zil1rpxnv479xy9c2jlgry3wy3869rnt4rjvjwjtuv
zilEpoch = 0 ; number of DAG epoch for caching
pool1 = eu.ezil.me:5555

ETH (ezil.me)  + Zilliqua (ezil.me)

Here you can see combined way of dual: - 1 pool - 2 coins.

[ethash]
wallet = 0x52bc44d5378309ee2abf1539bf71de1b7d7be3b5.zil1rpxnv479xy9c2jlgry3wy3869rnt4rjvjwjtuv
zilEpoch = 0
pool1 = eu.ezil.me:5555
pool2 = us-east.ezil.me:5555
pool3 = us-west.ezil.me:5555
pool4 = asia.ezil.me:5555

You also can add a worker name with a "rigName" option. 

Raven (Nanopool)  + Zilliqua (ezil.me)

[KawPow]
coin = RVN
wallet = RRL5mMNeox75MGbqnfUZEhn3RferuvFGcy
[zil]
wallet = zil1rpxnv479xy9c2jlgry3wy3869rnt4rjvjwjtuv
zilEpoch = 0 ; number of DAG epoch for caching
pool1 = eu.ezil.me:5555

Warning! Please don't forget to replace example wallets with your own wallet addresses.

When you mining split coin on Shard pool, you need to use this host and port: eu1-zil.shardpool.io:5000 instead of eu1-zil.shardpool.io:3333. Otherwise Shardpool will think you mining  with their service only, and submit jobs for both coins to you.

Example:

[KawPow]
wallet = 9he6BZYMN8FMKxYKsqPvQJ6fbNar4bWuhJsR9JJt4x9Z6fiqSo1
coin = RVN
pool1 = rvn.2miners.com:6060
[zil]
wallet = zil1rpxnv479xy9c2jlgry3wy3869rnt4rjvjwjtuv
zilEpoch = 0 ; number of DAG epoch for caching
pool1 = eu1-zil.shardpool.io:5000
