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:

If you unzip it and put it in your Applications folder, you would run it like this:

Open Terminal in the Utilities folder


cd /Applications/vertminer/bin

press enter then type

./minerd -o -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!

This was compiled from the code on this github project:

I like P2Pool, and you can find a list of vert coin P2Pool nodes here if you need a pool:

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
