Step 1 - Create a wallet

You could download the wallet with complete blockchain: official Ethereum Classic, use the online wallet MyEtherWallet or generate an address at crypto exchange, for example Binance or Gate.io.

Step 2 - Download mining software

For Nvidia GPU's we recommend T-Rex (Guide - How to use T-Rex).
For AMD GPU's we recommend lolMiner (Guide - How to use lolMiner).
Quick start - Download ready to go version of the GPU Miner (archive password - 2miners).

Step 3 - Edit the bat file

Use YOUR_ADDRESS that you've created on Step 1.
Example: 0xa6e43E5D497ce1f4d28b4270630E97308eDA8b3e
If you want, you can Change RIG_ID in the bat file. Specify the name of the rig as you want it to be shown in miner's statistics page. This field is not mandatory. You could leave it empty.
Length of RIG_ID - Maximum 32 characters. Use English letters, numbers and symbols "-" and "_".
