You can both CPU and GPU mine Vertcoin
EDIT: MacMiner now includes the VertCoin CPU and GPU miners - read on if you'd rather use the command line than an app for mining
Download the CPU miner or compile it yourself:
Is the compiled Github CPU miner project for Vertcoin: https://github.com/Bufius/cpuminer-vert
If you unzip it and put it in your Applications folder, you would run it like this:
Open Terminal in the Utilities folder
press enter then type
./minerd -o http://18.104.22.168:9171 -u username -p password
Replacing pool and user information with your own. Press enter and cpu mining will commence.
For GPU mining, there is a special version of cgminer that supports VertCoin. For that, instructions are included in the download. Make sure you use --scrypt-vert! http://downloads.fabulouspanda.co.uk/vertminer-cg-mac.zip
This was compiled from the code on this github project: https://github.com/Bufius/vertminer-gpu
I like P2Pool, and you can find a list of vert coin P2Pool nodes here if you need a pool: http://p2pool.vertcoin.org
With P2Pool, there’s no registration - just use your VertCoin Address for your username and password.
If you have any problems, please leave a comment, or check in at the Mac mining forum
