How to Mine Verge (XVG) on Windows 10 Nvidia GPU’s

Please refer to our Monero Mining Tutorial. We no longer recommend mining Verge to our audience.


Hello everyone! So we just finished setting up our new cryptocurrency miner and are mining Verge as we type. So, we thought we would share some knowledge with the community.

Now, lets get started mining XVG. We are assuming you already have the correct graphic card drivers for your cards. We are using the latest Nvidia Drivers.

Software needed:

ccminer – We used “v2.2.1 Windows CUDA 9 binaries”

Electrum-XVG wallet – Download whichever OS version you need.

How to install needed software:

Start with your wallet first. After you have downloaded your XVG wallet, run the program and go through the setup process. Next, click on Tools > Network > Change the server to elec2.verge-blockchain.com and set port at 50001 and uncheck Use SSL. You can play around with these settings but these are what worked for us.

Now your wallet should be syncing and online.

Next up is setting up the miner:

CCMiner – Download 7zip file (GitHub is linked above), we used the x64 version.

ccminer for windows download

Now extract the folder to somewhere you will remember. We put ours on the desktop inside of a folder labeled ccminer.

ccminer extract

The next step is setting up our .bat file to run the miner. Inside of your ccminer folder, right click and hit New > Text Document. Now inside of the new text document paste this:

Lyra2v2 on ZPool

ccminer-x64.exe -a lyra2v2 -o stratum+tcp://lyra2v2.mine.zpool.ca:4533 -u DNxmULTQWa5H2gGkZgYCTtirbEwTdoZnTi -p c=XVG

x17 on Yiimp

ccminer-x64.exe -a x17 -o stratum+tcp://yiimp.eu:3777 -u DNxmULTQWa5H2gGkZgYCTtirbEwTdoZnTi -p c=XVG

You will have to edit this to include your own wallet address. To find your wallet address, go to Electrum-XVG wallet > Address > Right Click > Copy Address.

After you have your configuration the way you want it, hit Save As > start.bat (Select all files)

save .bat mining script

Now all that is left is to fire up the start.bat file and make it is working!

ccminer successfully mining XVG

Congratulations! You are now mining Verge with your Nvidia GPU’s on Windows 10!

Things to note:

Where to trade XVG – Binance.com

Verge (XVG) is currently $.06 so you will not see profit unless(until) XVG goes up in price.

Solo mining will take forever to find blocks. Use a pool to increase profits/coins mined.

Not all GPU’s are created equal, as you can see, ours suck.

If you have any questions or comments please leave them below!

i have a quadcor pc and gt730 graphics card and the bat settings are not working it say invalid cpu int and it goes off any fix ??? plx reply me .

Hey Salman,

Try using -i 1 for your intensity in the config file. If you still receive errors when running on that, update any CUDA drivers that you may have and then update any Nvidia drivers. After you try all of these things, and are still unable to run the miner, I would assume that ccminer is not compatible with that graphics card.

Thanks so much for the video and written tutorial. I’ve been wanting to try out some basic GPU mining on my laptop. Got it all up and running pretty easily. Only thing I’m unsure of is if I got my wallet all setup correctly with the program. So when should I expect to start seeing payments just so I can keep an eye out. Hourly? Daily? I know that may vary depending on the hardware – I’m just mining with a single GeForce GTX 1050. Getting 2845 kh/s.

I have the miner working with lyra2v2. When I input my XVG wallet address into zpool it says its Digibyte. I know its a good XVG address for my electrum wallet I have sent verge to it. Am I in the right place? Where do I go to check up on my mining statistics? this was a great guide.

    CubanMiner - January 16, 2018 Reply

    You need to Direct Message @Zpool on Discord and tell them what is going on and to please change the payouts to be paid in Verge instead of Digibyte.

Hi! In windows7 64 run ccminer-x64-2.2.4-cuda9.7z, windows displays a message – unable to run component due to incompatibility with 64 bit version. What am I doing wrong?
