Cloud Mining Protoshares
« on: September 10, 2014, 03:24:46 AM »

Note that if you try and spend $25 by signing up with my referral link: https://www.digitalocean.com/?refcode=3a96071d7d5f , I'll give you $10 so you get your first $25 to try 40% off!

Hello Everyone,
Recently a thread has been published about mining Protoshares on the cloud - something which can be very profitable to do. Here I have taken the feedback from people in the cloud and have decided to put that all in one thread for you guys. I've also tried to make it a bit simpler for "newbies".

To start, please sign up for DigitalOcean using my referral link: https://www.digitalocean.com/?refcode=3a96071d7d5f If you do, I'll give you some PTS for trying it out:), just post your address in this thread. To get extra, let me know you used my referral code (and if I got the referrals) then I'll give you the $10!

Guide For beeeeer.org
First you need to create a droplet. I recommend starting with as large of a size as possible, though the best started is the 4 CPU / 8 GB - but feel free to start with a smaller one. Just don't use the smallest because when I tried it I got an error for using too much memory. . Make sure to make  Debian 7.0 x64 your image. Once your droplet is created you should see a button in the top right that says root access. Click on that button and use your username and password (that are emailed to you when you create a droplet) to log in.

Once you have logged in type in the following code in order:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y git make g++ build-essential libminiupnpc-dev
sudo apt-get install -y libboost-all-dev libdb++-dev libgmp-dev libssl-dev dos2unix

git clone https://github.com/thbaumbach/ptsminer
cd ~/ptsminer/src
make -f makefile.unix
./ptsminer <your PTS address> <number of threads>

Go to http://ptsweb.beeeeer.org/user/<your PTS address> to see how many coins your getting!

If this guide helped you to mine some coins please send your tips to PqmyVWJtJgb2qudCiDyQvTMo7ibJfWiuvY

Thanks!

Ok thanks - I'll look into this. The basis of the guide should be the same you would just enter another pool in the place of beeeeer.

Think I'm going to start this. I have a VPS for a node/chain server and the CPU is idle. May as well mine PTS since I'm paying for it anyway and help the PTS network.
