Core Mining

If you have decided to participate in the Core Blockchain Network by mining Core Coins (XCB), but don’t exactly know how to start, you have come to the right place. In this article, we will teach you how to download and adjust the mining software.

Once you have successfully prepared your mining device, make sure to follow these few easy steps:

Step 1: Download a Crypto Wallet

Before you start acquiring crypto, you need a place to put it. Core provides a few options for storing your Core Coins, either through downloading the go-core client, or the ICAN address generator.

Once you acquire your private key, it is of utmost importance to remember it or keep it somewhere safe. If you lose your key, you lose your funds.

  1. Download Go-Core.
  2. Unzip the file.
  3. Open the Terminal.
  4. Type folder location of the CoreMiner or the so-called cd ~/Downloads etc.
  5. Change the rights with the command chmod +x gocore
  6. Run ./gocore in the Terminal.
  7. Write down your password.
  8. You can find your wallet address under “The public address of the key,” and your private and public keys encrypted in a file that has automatically been saved on your computer. You can find it at the address stated in your terminal.
  1. Download the ICAN address generator.
  2. Unzip the file.
  3. Open the Terminal.
  4. Type folder location of the CoreMiner or the so-called cd ~/Downloads etc.
  5. Change the rights with the command chmod +x wallet-generator
  6. Write down ./wallet-generator or run the file.
  7. Your Private Key, Public Key, and Wallet address have been generated.

Always remember to backup your private key!

  3. Choose any name of your choice for your mining device.
  4. We recommend an additional backup pool, enter yes; y.
