To mine Radiant offers an exciting opportunity for individuals eager to delve into the world of crypto-mining. Cryptocurrencies have transformed our perception and interaction with financial systems in our rapidly evolving digital era. Within the vast selection of digital currencies available, Radiant Coin has emerged as an up-and-coming contender, capturing the interest of tech enthusiasts, investors, and miners alike. Boasting exceptional features and robust underlying technology.
Within this blog post, I will guide you through the fundamental steps of mining Radiant Coin on a Windows PC. To commence your mining journey, there are a few essential tools you will require, which I will outline below.
Setup a Radiant Wallet
Before we begin, you must set up a wallet for the Radiant coin. I strongly advise using your wallet rather than an exchange wallet address.
You can download the Electron Cash fork to get your wallet, which you can install on any PC. This wallet can be downloaded directly from their GitHub page.
Download Radiant Coin Miner
In this guide, we will be using BZminer as our mining software. This miner is not available. I will list alternative options below.
BZminer is a free download from their GitHub page, found here. BZminer is compatible with AMD, Nvidia GPUs. There is a 1% dev fee, and users can optionally enable the community fund (1% ). Windows requires Nvidia drivers supporting Cuda 11.2 or greater.
I recommend downloading and extracting all the files into a folder in the Windows Exclusion list. Sometimes miner files can be flagged by the OS as a threat, so adding it to the exclusion list helps prevent the core files from being removed.
Configure Radiant Miner
Now that you have extracted all the files from the miner, we will look for the Radiant batch file.
Right-click on the file, and select edit. Edit this file in the default Windows Notepad application or text editor.
If you get a ‘Windows protect your PC’ message, select the ‘More info’ option than the ‘Run Anyway’ button.
The text file will look similar to this.
Inside the text file, we will only modify a few things to be associated with your specific user information. We use the Vipor pool in this guide, but you can use any pool you’d like.
- Add two colons (::) in front of bzminer in the first line to comment out this pool.
- Remove the two colons (::) in front of BZminer on the second line to use the Vipor pool.
Next, look for the ‘0000’ and add your personal wallet address. This address can be the Recieve wallet address from the Electron wallet we installed. Any profits made by the miner will get paid directly to this address when the minimum threshold has been met.
Please note: The minimum payout for Vipor is 100 RXD. If you haven’t mined 100 RXD, you will not receive anything from the pool. Each pool is different, so if you don’t use Vipor, you must check the threshold for the pool you use.
The pool server address is the last part we are going to edit. This address will be based on your geographical region. You can select your region here under the ‘Select Region’ tab.
Highlight the current address, and replace it with your selected region. Be sure not to replace anything but the chosen address.
Now, you can save your changes and close the batch file.
Back in your Radiant folder, look for the ‘Radiant.bat’ file. Once located, double-click to run it. If everything is set up correctly, you should see a window like the one below, which means you are mining Radiant!
When do I get paid?
I get asked a lot. As mentioned earlier, the payout is based on the pool. Vipor Pool currently pays out miners once 100RXD has been mined.
The best way to see how much you have mined is to enter your wallet address at the pool’s main window.
Once you search your wallet, you will see all the statistical details of your miner and your unpaid balance. This dashboard is the most accurate way to know when you receive payment.
