How To Mine Omnicoin [OMC] [WITH PICTURES]
#1
Hey guys, welcome to my first tutorial!

In this tutorial I'll show you how to mine Omnicoin, a new Crypto Currency!

If you don't have a OMC wallet yet, please download it HERE.

Step 1:

First off you need to register an account on a pool.
I recommend using THIS pool.
They don't have any fees.
Create an account, and head over to the next step.

Step 2:

After creating an account, you need a worker.
Go to HERE (after signing up).
The worker name can whatever you want, but don't use an extremely hard password or username, because it can mess up the whole project.

Step 3:

Now we need to download a miner.

There are a few miners:

CGMiner 3.7.2 - DOWNLOAD HERE
Pick this miner if you have an AMD / ATI graphics card, don't use this one with a NVIDIA card!

CUDAMiner - DOWNLOAD HERE
Pick this miner if you have a NVIDIA graphics card.

Pooler's CPU Miner - DOWNLOAD HERE
If you want to mine using your CPU, pick this one.
This won't reach the same speed as the GPU miners.

Step 4:

After downloading the miner, extract it to your desktop.
Then make a new textdocument, and call it "run.bat" (without quotes).

Then you have to fill this in for CGMiner:
Code:
cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://192.99.42.54:3333 -O username.workername:password

If you're using CUDAMiner, use this:
Code:
cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://192.99.42.54:3333 -O username.workername:password

And for Pooler's CPU Miner use this:
Code:
minerd.exe --url=stratum+tcp://192.99.42.54:3333 --userpass=username.workername:password

IMPORTANT: at the end you see username.workername:password.
The username is your username at the pool, the workername is the name of your worker and the password is the password of your worker.

So in my case it will be (My name is Bitcoin):
Bitcoin.omnicoin:google

Step 5:

Head over to THIS page.
Search for your graphics card, and copy the code and paste it behind the code you already have.

So my code will now look like this.

Code:
cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://192.99.42.54:3333 -O Bitcoin.omnicoin:google -i 0 -H 1 -lT30x16

Step 6:

Save the run.bat in the same folder as your miner, run the run.bat and you're done!

Greetz, Bitcoin.
