Mining Note on the Raspberry Pi

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

Happy mining!
