Step-by-step guide: how to mine Diskcoin

Mining Diskcoin can be divided into two parts: Plot files and mining.


Step 1: Get your Ploter ID.

If you are a beginner in mining PoC coins, please click on Diskcoin PID Generator to get your Plot ID. If you had mined PoC coins before, please click on Diskcoin PID Generator to check whether your PID is applicable. If yes, you are no need to replot files to mine DISC. If your PID is not applicable, you need to use the tool to generate new PID and then plot if you want to mine DISC. Kindly note that with the PID generated by Diskcoin PID Generator, you could also mine other POC coins together.


Step 2: Plotting

There are several plot software for your selection. And each of them have a tutorial for plotting.

Start the Diskcoind service

Enter the Diskcoind directory

cd diskcoin

Start Diskcoind service command

./diskcoin-qt -rpcbind= -rpcallowip=""

Wait for the Diskcoind to sync full node data

./diskcoin-cli getinfo View current block height

./diskcoin-cli getblockcount View the latest height

If the two values are the same, then the full node data has been synced, indicating that you can start mining.


Windows/MacOS system:

Install the Diskcoind

Start Diskcoind service command First enter the installation directory of Diskcoin, there is a diskcoin-qt.exe file, as the figure shows:



Press "Windows" and "R" at the same time, there is a search box. Enter "cmd" to go to the Windows console and execute the following startup command.

Your wallet installation path/diskcoin-qt.exe  -rpcallowip= -rpcbind=



MacOS is the same operation, but the command is different. MacOS startup command:

Applications/Diskcoin-Qt.app/Contents/MacOS/Diskcoin-Qt -rpcallowip= -rpcbind=```


If the wallet can be launched, the operation is successful and the miner file can be configured. As the figure shows:

Modify the mining device configuration file: miner.conf

"Server": "",

"Port": 63336,

"UpdaterAddr": "",

"UpdaterPort": 63336,

"InfoAddr": "",

"InfoPort": 63336,

MinerName = m1 #can be empty

Others can use the default value.
