XAYA uses a unique triple-purpose mining strategy to arrive at consensus and secure the blockchain. Two algorithms are used:
- SHA-256d (merge mined)
- Neo-scrypt (solo or pool mined)
SHA-256d miners receive 25% of the block rewards while neo-scrypt miners receive 75%.
The following are 2 pools you can mine with.
Neo-scrypt Pool Mining
For neo-scrypt pool mining, use this modified ccminer:
Run the miner as shown. Note the algorithm option.
ccminer -a neoscrypt-xaya -o stratum+tcp://eu.bsod.pw:2534 -u walletaddress -p x
Solo Mine Neo-scrypt
To solo mining neo-scrypt, you need an Nvidia GPU and ccminer from here:
Run ccminer as shown below (if not using the electron wallet you can remove the parts of the URL after the port).
ccminer -a neoscrypt -o http://127.0.0.1:8396/wallet/game.dat -O user:pass
