If it can mine, it will mine. Raspberry Pi’s included.
That doesn’t mean its worth mining on, but I’m going to show you how to do it anyway. It’s actually only about 3 commands. I will be using a Raspberry Pi 2 with ubuntu installed, though this guide should work for any Raspberry Pi with Ubuntu Server installed.
First we need the deps:
sudo apt-get install automake autoconf pkg-config libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev libssl-dev libgmp-dev zlib1g-dev make g++
next we need to clone the repo:
git clone https://github.com/tpruvot/cpuminer-multi -b linux
Now this is the long one. This command will take quite a while to run, so don’t be worried if the terminal freezes up for a while.
cd cpuminer-multi && ./build.sh
Okay, if everything went according to plan we should have our cpuminer built. With a 32-Bit ARM chip, the best algo I could find to mine was yescrypt. I’ll once again be using a multi-pool, in this case zpool, to get the most out of the Pi, which is not going to be much. If you have a Pi 3 or 4, you may be able to use a different miner and get a bit more out of it than I am seeing.
./cpuminer -a yespowerr16 -o stratum+tcp://yespowerR16.na.mine.zpool.ca:6534 -u YourNoteAddress -p c=NTBC
For reference sake I will leave my Pis mining and link to the wallet so you can see how much Note they’re actually able to get Here
