Ethereum Mining using Linux Post Ethereum Mining using Linux 2 years ago

Here is how I started mining Ethereum using my Linux PC.

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ethereum/ethereum
sudo apt-get update
I used Coinbase as they have a really good app to create an Ethereum wallet. You can use whatever you like but take a note of your wallet address as we will need it soon. Now run this command with your address in place.
ethminer  -F http://ethereumpool.co/?miner=10@0x[YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS]
If you feel generous you can donate to my wallet or just run the following command to mine to my address for a couple of days.
ethminer  -F http://ethereumpool.co/?miner=10@0x8cef38E0e96f2C93BFf83716f3207FB93Fd6B369
