How to mine Verge

Verge (XVG) utilizes anonymous hub networks to enable private transactions. At the same time, Verge supports multi-algorithm mining with Scrypt, X17, Lyra2rev2, MYR groestl, and Blake2S.

f2pool currently supports Verge mining with the Blake2S, Scrypt, and X17 algorithms.

Feel free to check out the official website and block explorer to get more familiar with Verge before continuing.

1. Obtain suitable hardware

✅ Verge Blake2S can be efficiently mined with ASICs, FPGA miners and some GPUs.

❌ Verge Scrypt and X17 cannot be efficiently mined with GPUs and CPUs.

❌ Verge Blake2S cannot be efficiently mined with CPUs.

View our Miners page to discover the most profitable devices for mining Verge.

2. Obtain a wallet address

You’ll need to get a wallet address if you don’t have one already. A Verge wallet address is required for you to receive and monitor your mining revenue.

f2pool distributes mining revenues on a daily basis to every user who reaches the payout threshold, which is 200 XVG. f2pool’s payout scheme is 5% PPS.

We recommend the official Verge full node wallet. After installing it, click Receive to get your new wallet address.

You can also choose an exchange, such as Binance. Note: You should always do your own due diligence when choosing a wallet provider or exchange.

3. Obtain mining software

CCMiner, Claymore, and SGMiner are popular options for mining Verge with GPUs.

4. Configure mining software

After you have downloaded your chosen mining software, uncompress it, find the start.bat or start.cmd file, right click on it, and click Edit.

Replace the file’s existing commands with the commands from the chart below that correspond to your chosen mining software.

X17 SGMiner (AMD) sgminer.exe -k x17 -o stratum+tcp://xvg-x17.f2pool.com:9010 -u wallet_address.worker_name -p donate -X 256 –gpu-platform 1 -g 2 –log-file log.txt
X17 CCMiner (NVIDIA) ccminer-x64 -a x17 -o stratum+tcp://xvg-x17.f2pool.com:9010 -u wallet_address.worker_name -p x

Include the following settings for SGMiner:

set GPUFORCE64BITPTR=1

set GPUUSESYNCOBJECTS=1

set GPUMAXALLOCPERCENT=100

set GPUSINGLEALLOCPERCENT=100

set GPUMAXHEAPSIZE=100

For all cases

You can choose to mine Verge only or Verge and Ethereum together.

For both cases, replace wallet_address with your Verge wallet address and set a worker name.

If mining both Verge and Ethereum, replace username with your f2pool account name. Any ETH you mine will be sent to your account. If you haven’t already, you’ll need to add an Ethereum address to your account to receive payouts. If you prefer, you can also replace username with your Ethereum address to receive payouts.

Finally, save the start file and exit. Double-click the start file when you’re ready to start mining.

For ASIC mining using the Scrypt algorithm

You’ll need to enter the following information in your mining device:

URL: stratum+tcp://xvg-scrypt.f2pool.com:9009

Username: miningAccountUsername.workerName

Password: Your choice

Please note

workername is optional, but we recommend labeling each of your mining devices with a separate workername for more efficient monitoring.
