How to mine RavenCoin (RVN)

Please note, that RavenCoin uses the ASIC-resistant algo, so it can be mined only on GPUs.

1. Choose mining hardware

Before getting started, you will need to:

  • Buy mining hardware: graphics cards (GPU) AMD or Nvidia with at least 4+GB RAM. To check the profitability of your hardware, please visit WhatToMine;
  • Connect your GPUs to Windows or Linux compatible PC using PCI slots;
  • Install the latest GPU drivers.

2. Create RVN wallet

To get rewards from mining, you need to have your personal RVN wallet. Here are some popular wallets:

  • Exchange wallet at Binance;
  • Download the latest version for Windows, Linux, or Mac https://github.com/RavenProject/Ravencoin/releases/;
  • Extract the archive and run the “raven-qt.exe” file, wait for full synchronization;
  • Once synchronized, go to File -> Receiving Addresses, and if you don’t have an address, click “New” and create one.

3. Connect miner to the pool

To start mining in the pool, you need to configure your miner. Here are Minerall.io pool settings:
