I am creating a custom coin based on Forking Monero.

Once the build process has been completed, how do I go about actually mining the coin?

Is it possible to modify XMRIG to do this? https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig

Im going to assume you've setup a mining pool for your "custom coin", just set the correct algo perimeters on xmrig and point it to your mining pool. Nothing needs to be modified in XMRig

  • @Wesley Is setting up a mining pool the only way to mine a coin? Is there any way to mine directly without a mining pool? – James Jun 27 '18 at 19:37
  • Yes sure you can, it also depends what coins you plan on mining. If its your own coins, you can mine it using the wallet-cli (which uses your CPU). If you are the only one mining your coin then CPU mining it is best, there would be no point GPU mining it. – Wesley Jun 27 '18 at 19:44
