Mining CHI

XAYA uses a unique triple-purpose mining strategy to arrive at consensus and secure the blockchain. Two algorithms are used:

  1. SHA-256d (merge mined)
  2. Neo-scrypt (solo or pool mined)

SHA-256d miners receive 25% of the block rewards while neo-scrypt miners receive 75%.

Mining Pools

The following are 2 pools you can mine with.

Neo-scrypt Pool Mining

For neo-scrypt pool mining, use this modified ccminer:

https://github.com/xaya/ccminer/releases/tag/v0.1

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:

https://github.com/tpruvot/ccminer

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

If you did not set a user:pass in the xaya.conf file, you can find the user:pass in the .cookie file in the datadir.
