How to undermine X-Cash Coin (XCA): Complete the Beginner's Guide

X-CASH is a cryptocurrency that aims to provide a way to transfer money for very little. The currency has a maximum reserve of 100 billion and taxes are around 1.14XCA at the moment. This would mean that even if this coin had a market capitalization of one billion dollars, the commissions would still be around 0.01 USD to transfer money.

As for the characteristics of X-CASH, they are a fork of Monero. For this reason, X-CASH has the privacy aspects of Monero called RingCT. They allow mixin of 1-10 with 0 mixing capacity on the roadmap in a few months. The coin also has a one-minute block and is based on the cryptongiht_v7 anti ASIC algorithm.

As for the uniqueness of X-CASH, Its a coin launched on July 30, 2018 by a team of three self-funded "no ICO" cars, which aims to integrate X-CASH into the banking world, since their founder is a former operator of a large bank.

 How to Mine X-Cash

The team is very active on BitcoinTalk, telegram and Discord. They are also very active in the development of X-CASH, with a Windows GUI wallet already released and mac, linux, web and mobile on the roadmap, all by the end of the year.

The structure of the coins is as follows

  • 60% of the coin to be extracted
  • 40% premino. The allocation of premine is for
  • 20% is transmitted to the community, 1% for the next 20 months (more information on airdrops and bounties on https://bitcointalk.org/index.php ? topic = 4781246.0) [19659008] 10% is allocated to the team for development costs, exchange quotations etc.
  • 5% is for private investors, which if not sold in 6 months will be forwarded to the community

5% is for the team and the new team members (2% already given) where the funds will be paid in 20% each time the market capitalization increases by a factor of 10X. So if the coin reaches 10M of market capitalization, 20% of the funds of the teams is paid to them, if the market capitalization is 100M another 20% of the funds of the teams are paid, etc. So it's a good chance that 60% of that 5% will never be paid.

Now that we know the details of X-CASH, let's move on to XCA mining!

X-CASH Disclosure

I must say that I am the CTO of X-CASH, and therefore one of the members of the X-CASH team (it is also on the X-CASH website) I feel that I need to let readers of this article know it.

Some general tips for mining [19659017] So, before starting this tutorial, I have two suggestions to make the most of your mining experience. First make sure you have the latest drivers for your GPUs. Secondly, most mining software will be flagged as virus by virus scanners. For this reason, if you perform mining operations on your normal gaming or everyday computer with an antivirus installed, it is advisable to exclude the mining software from the antivirus. What I like to do is create a folder and then insert all my mining software into subfolders. Then I exclude the top-level folder from the antivirus and this excludes all the data mining software.

Mining Pools

The first thing we need is a mining pool. You can mine mine, but the payments could take months, depending on how powerful your mining rig is, and the mineral pools usually require a very small fee (1% or less). Using a pool will allow you to receive consistent payments, several times a day.

For X-CASH, I will write the tutorial using the official X-CASH pool, as I know it is reliable. It is on http://minexcash.com/ The commissions are 2% for this pool, because the X-CASH team is trying to decentralize the mining pools, since currently 85% XCA extraction is in the official pool. I encourage everyone to consider the opportunity to join a community pool, since they are all much cheaper in the proportion of mining commissions and help to decentralize the hashish rate. Community pools can be located at https://x-cash.org/miningpools/

As for their features, have a large pool, are located in the EU (France), charge the 2% tax, have an SSL connection available for mining use, supports mining directly in an exchange, custom difficulty and have a custom payment threshold. This means that you can set at what amount you want the pool to pay you automatically.

They also have a variety of ports to connect to:

Use 3333 if mining using a CPU
Use 5555 if you are using a GPU (one or two GPUs , such as a gaming computer)
Use 7777 if you are mining using a GPU mining farm (plus GPUs like 3 or more per computer)
Use 9000 if mining with SSL
Use 9999 if mining with Nicehash

We have also created a configuration generator for the pool and the 3 most popular cryptonight miners, so you can easily configure your mining software.

simply fill in the details, select the boxes for which you want to use the GPUs and click More information for the Cryptonight mining software you are using.

Configuration of extraction software

For CPU, GPU – Nvidia and GPU – AMD tutorial, we will use xmr-stak. It's open source, the most customizable and lets you use the mix of Nvidia GPUs and AMD and CPU, all from a single window. It is also available for Windows and Linux.

You can download xmr-stak at the address https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr-stak/releases The latest version is 2.4.7, which is what we will be using in this tutorial. If you need to use Linux, you will need to download the source code and compile the software. This tutorial will not focus on how to create xmr-stak from the source.

The first time you run xmr-stak, you'll need to set it up a bit. We will cover the initial configuration here, and then you can read how to configure the miner in the section that concerns you (CPU, GPU – Nvidia and GPU – AMD)

When you run xmr-stak for the first time, be presented with two windows cmd [19659002]

You can close the one that says you need to run in order to have administrator privileges.

A series of steps will then be presented that will guide the initialization of the software through the first time. Once completed, it will not be necessary to repeat the operation.

The initialization steps will ask the following questions:

Type a port on which you want to use remote monitoring. Usually 8000 or 3000 are available on most home computer networks. Next, to monitor your data mining computers, you can enter the IP address and port of your mining computer, in a web browser on any device connected to your network, to view your total speed and other detailed reports

Currency: – You will have to type "cryptonight_v7"

Pool address: this is the address and port of the pool you want to extract. For example, I typed "minexcash.com:7777"

Username -. This is the public key to its portfolio [19659002] For example I would put
XCA1jCj23qwJ45QR47fHMA3HYXuP13SSqa4AhdKoFFXWSz6rwjmzdxmAnKV9A3dYRp1yZiYnVwuLTAuyuXomMhsu5QojRPmFCE [19659002] Password – tipo'x '[19659002] SSL support – type "n"

Want to use Nicehash – type "n"

Want to use multiple pools – type "n"

At this point the software should start ; extraction.Wait until you see "logged into mining_pool: port", then close the mining software.If you look in the folder where the miner is stored, you should have created text files for the CPU and the graphics card (Nvidia or AMD.) They would be called cpu.txt, nvidia.txt, amd.txt, will also create a config.txt file and a pools.txt.In the next sections we will show how to edit txt files for each mining component and how to disable a certain brand or CPU GPU from mining.

Pool configuration

At this point your pools.txt should be configured, but I will show you how to configure it manually. Open the pools.txt and you should see something like this

If you want to change server, you need to edit pool_address. To edit wallets, edit wallet_address. Leave the empty rig_id. Change the pool password based on your pool configuration.

At the bottom, you have a currency. You must tell XMR-Stak which currency is your data mining. They support most of the Cryptonight coins, so you can simply type in the coin name from the list in the txt file. If the currency you want to extract is not in the list, you should know which algorithm uses and use the name of the currency algorithm. If their is a whattomine calculator for your currency, the algorithm is usually listed, otherwise you can probably find information on the coin site.

CPU Mining

As far as CPU extraction is concerned, the Cryptonight algorithm is the most profitable algorithm for using a CPU. For mining with the CPU, we can use xmr-stak or xmrig. xmr-stak has only precompiled binaries for Windows, while xmrig has them for Windows and Linux. Both have source code, so you can compile it yourself to work with Linux if necessary.

You can download xmr-stak from https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr-stak/releases [19659002] You can download xmrig CPU on https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig/releases

For this tutorial we will use xmr-stak.

After completing the initial configuration, we should be ready for mine. One thing to do is try and change the cpu.txt settings that xmr-stak has created for us to get the highest possible hash rate.

I have found that at least for the CPU, the program generates automatically the best possible configuration settings. The comments in cpu.txt do a great job of explaining each setting and how you might try to get more performance from your computer.

After configuring cpu.txt, we now need to create a file boot batch to run the program.

Just create a new batch file (or script file if you use Linux) inside the folder where the miner is located and paste it into the batch file

  xmr-stak.exe  optional_flags [19659058] Replace "optional_flags" with nothing if you want the machine to drive using the CPU and any other GPU in the machine, or the following 

-noCPU This will disable the CPU from being extracted.
-noNVIDIA Disable all Nvidia GPUs in the system from mining.
-noAMD Will disable all AMD GPUs of the system from mining.

For example, my setup is:

  xmr-stak.exe --noNVIDIA 

Double-click on the batch file to run the miner and you should see something similar

To view the total speed at any time, press the "h" key on the keyboard when the mining software is in focus.

GPU Mining - Nvidia

As for the GPU using the Nvidia GPUs, we have the option of using xmr-stak or xmrig. xmr-stak has only precompiled binaries for Windows, while xmrig has them for Windows and Linux. Both have source code, so you can compile it yourself to work with Linux if necessary.

You can download xmr-stak from https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr-stak/releases [19659002] You can download xmrig Nvidia at https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig-nvidia/releases [19659019] For this tutorial we will use xmr-stak.

After performing the initial configuration, we should be ready for mine. One thing to do is try and change the nvidia.txt settings that xmr-stak has created for us to get the highest possible hash rate.

I discovered that for the GPU, you can change the settings to get a little more performance, but generally the program usually automatically generates the best possible configuration settings. The comments in nvidia.txt do a great job of explaining each setting and how you might try to get more performance out of your computer.

After configuring nvidia.txt, we now need to create the file boot batch to run the program.

Just create a new batch file (or script file if you use Linux) inside the folder where the miner is located and paste it into the batch file

  xmr-stak.exe  optional_flags [19659058] Replace "optional_flags" with nothing if you want the machine to drive using the CPU and any other GPU in the machine, or the following 

-noCPU This will disable the CPU from being extracted.
-noNVIDIA Disable all Nvidia GPUs in your mining system.
-noAMD Disables all AMD GPUs of your system from mining.

For example, my setup is:

  xmr-stak.exe --noCPU 

Double-click the batch file to run the miner and you should see something

To view the total speed at any time, press the "h" key on the keyboard when the mining software is in focus.

Mining GPU - AMD

Regarding GPU extraction with AMD GPU, we have the option of using xmr-stak, xmrig, Cast XMR or AMD Claymore miner Cryptonote.

You can download xmr-stak at the address https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr- stak / releases

You can download xmrig Nvidia at https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig- nvidia / releases

Cast XMR can be downloaded at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic= 2256917.0; all

Claymore's AMD Cryptonote miner can be downloaded at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=638915.0

For this tutorial, we will use xmr-stak.

After examining the initial configuration, we should be ready for mine. One thing to do is try and change the settings of amd.txt that xmr-stak has created for us to get the highest hash rate.

I discovered that for the GPU, you can change the settings to get a little more performance, but generally the program usually automatically generates the best possible configuration settings. For my Vega system, I had to add two threads for GPUs. The comments in amd.txt do a great job of explaining each setting and how you might try to get more performance out of your computer.

After configuring amd.txt, we now need to create the file boot batch to run the program.

Just create a new batch file (or script file if you use Linux) inside the folder where the miner is located and paste it into the batch file

  xmr-stak.exe  optional_flags [19659058] Replace "optional_flags" with nothing if you want the machine to drive using the CPU and any other GPU in the machine, or the following 

-noCPU This will disable the CPU from being extracted.
-noNVIDIA Disable all Nvidia GPUs in your mining system.
-noAMD Disables all AMD GPUs of your system from mining.

For example, my setup is:

  xmr-stak.exe --noCPU 

Double-click on the batch file to run the miner and you should see something like t his

[19659002] To view the total speed at any time, press the "h" key on the keyboard when the mining software is in focus.

If there are problems, you may not have enough virtual memory. You may need 16 GB of virtual memory (for Vega GPUs you need more than 16 GB per GPU) to change it go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> System and click on Advanced System Settings on the left. From there, click Settings on the Advanced tab. After clicking edit, then on the third screen, deselect the automatic management, choose the custom size and type the size (in MB) for both text boxes. Then press the Set button, then the OK button.

Resolving general problems

One thing to monitor is stale or rejected shares. If you see a lot of expired shares, you may want to try a server closer to you. If you see many refused shares, try reducing the miner's intensity, if available.

Configuring custom payment threshold

The default setting is the minimum payment is 10000 XCA. If you want to configure it higher, go to http://minexcash.com/#settings and then get your IPV4 public IP address. Then type in the "Miner IP Address" text box

Then enter the desired amount (up to 10 million XCA) in the minimum payments text box and then click the Set button.

How much XCA earning per day?

X-CASH was just released on July 30, 2018 so we were not yet in an exchange (we are currently applying, and we are going for the best-known exchanges) so there is no price associated with X- CASH. To calculate the number of coins you will receive per day, you can use the Mining Pool Calculator. This will provide a rough estimate.
http://minexcash.com/#market

For my 3 vega system I am shown that I should make about 551.774 XCA per day. This number will also change a lot during the day, since our total network hash rate is still small (2MH), which means that this is a very rough estimate.

Here it is. Now you should extract X-CASH! Be sure to type your public key in the mining pool control panel to keep track of your statistics. Also make sure to register for your size and drop of air. We are in the 2nd round of bounty so the next 10,000 users who sign up for the bounty will receive 10,000 XCA for free! The airdrop also opens in a few days.
