Since Decred is using blake256, I will be setting up mining on my windows machine because it has a better graphics card.
Info for the setup came from here:
Download the binaries:
The quick reference guide will help you:
Start the decred daemon the first time:
dcrd.exe -u YourUserName -P YourPassword
Start the decred wallet and get a new address:
dcrwallet --create dcrwallet --dcrdusername=YourUserName --dcrdpassword=YourPassword /noclienttls
You will need to set up a passphrase that you should save. You will need it to unlock your wallet later.
Your wallet will get created somewhere here:
Get a new address:
dcrctl --testnet -u YourUserName -P YourPassword --wallet getnewaddress
At this point, you will not need this wallet open to start mining, so you can shut it down, but you can unlock it and check the balance anytime you want when the wallet is running.
dcrctl --testnet -u YourUserName -P YourPassword --wallet getbalance dcrctl --testnet -u YourUserName -P YourPassword --wallet walletpassphrase "your passphrase here" 9999999
Shut down and start the decred daemon again. Note that if you are on windows, you will need the –notls flag if you want to mine:
dcrd.exe --notls -u YourUserName -P YourPassword --miningaddr=YourNewDecredAddress
Now to start mining:
cgminer.exe --blake256 -o http://127.0.0.1:19109 -u YourUserName -p YourPassword --intensity d
