Make $18 a day with [XPM] (Primecoin)


-----------PLEASE VISIT HTTP://WWW.IZANTE.COM FOR AN UPDATED GUIDE  -----

-----------THE FOLLOWING GUIDE MIGHT NO BE CURRENT------------

This is a simple guide on how to make some money mining the XPM coin on online VPS like digital ocean or other machines. This guide includes proof in screenshots for the first day  of this plan. There is 1 affiliate link in all this post, and this is the digital ocean affiliate. I don't like ruining articles with affiliate links, but I could not resist as they give me more machines if I refer people and you can do the same.

This guide is current today 11/29/2013 - difficulty changes, as well as prices, the earlier you do it the better. This guide will hopefully give you a head start in the mining business.


So,
XPM, or primecoin is a cryptocurrency that solves prime number problems. I don't know why or how and I don't care, but for some reason is worth more than other new cryptocurrencies, and that is why I decided to mine it. It can also be mined with CPU still.

In the next steps you will find out how to make those $18 a day. (You will pay $5 for the first day to get the VPS if you dont have spare XEON servers around. You do not need to know anything about linux, trust me. Those steps are all you need.


  1. Get to http://cryptsy.com and get a free account there.
  2. Go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/primecoin-hp/files/0.1.2-hp11/primecoin-0.1.2-hp11-winx86.zip/download and download the primecoin client
  3. When your client syncs copy the receiving address, We will use it in the next steps.
  4. Get to DIGITAL OCEAN and get a paid account there (Do not give any credit cards, just do the one time payment of 10 or 5 dollars)
  5. Create a new instance of the latest Ubuntu x64 machine and try to get the most cores (24cores). If you cant, get as high as possible. 
  6. When your machine is created, go and get putty if you do not have it already (http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/putty.exe
  7. Connect to the IP of your machine and use the credentials provided in the welcome email
  8. Now start pasting one by one the following lines. The only think you need to change in the following lines is the receiving address marked in red. If you don't change that you will be mining for me! You can also save all the code bellow to a .sh file and wget it and execute from your http location you control  if you want easier deployments
  9. mkdir ~/.primecoin
    echo "rpcuser=none1
    rpcpassword=none2
    gen=1
  10. setproclimit=-1" > ~/.primecoin/primecoin.conf
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install bzip2 -y
    sudo apt-get install git -y
    sudo apt-get install git-core -y
    sudo apt-get install subversion -y
    sudo apt-get install checkinstall -y
    sudo apt-get install build-essential -y
    sudo apt-get install libssl-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libdb5.1-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libdb5.1++-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libgmp3-dev -y
    wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/primecoin-hp/files/0.1.2-hp11/primecoin-0.1.2-hp11.tar.bz2/download
    tar jxvf download
    cd primecoin-0.1.2-hp11
    cd src
    make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=-
    ./primecoind -pooluser=AUd61zfP6oM6LicMkwtxsn1TU8R4ZdLJ9Z -poolpassword=0 -poolip=54.200.248.75 -poolport=1337 -genproclimit=20 &
    watch -d -n 5 './primecoind getmininginfo && ./primecoind getdifficulty && ./primecoind listtransactions "*" 1 0'
  11. When you run the above, after a few minutes you will have a working miner and a status page that refreshes every 5 seconds. When the miner syncs to the network and you can see all blocks as in your local client, power down the machine and create a snapshot in digital ocean.
  12. Create 4 more instances of this machine using the saved image
  13. Power on the machines
  14. Run the following after you login in each one of them :
    cd primecoin-0.1.2-hp11
    cd src
    ./primecoind -pooluser=AUd61zfP6oM6LicMkwtxsn1TU8R4ZdLJ9Z -poolpassword=0 -poolip=54.200.248.75 -poolport=1337 -genproclimit=20 &
    watch -d -n 5 './primecoind getmininginfo && ./primecoind getdifficulty && ./primecoind listtransactions "*" 1 0'
  15. You are now mining at a pool at http://beeeeer.org 
  16. When you reach 3.01 coins your balance will be transferred to your address at your client.
  17. When you have the coins, send them to your XPM cryptsy deposit account
  18. Check current prices and your portfolio and decide if you want your coins converted to btc:





  19. This guide is current today, always check the prediction here http://anty.info/primecoin-calculator/ as it might not worth to mine there anymore! Every Virtual machine will give you about 2-3 chains per day.


  20. That's it, one day later you've made $18  I advise that you gather the bitcoins until you have enough to buy an ASIC device. This way you would have started from $10 to thousands in no time!

  1. Hi there, thanx for the tutorial. I am giving it a try and getting an error in the make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=- command.

    Here is the error :
    --
    g++: internal compiler error: Killed (program cc1plus)
    Please submit a full bug report,
    with preprocessed source if appropriate.
    See for instructions.
    make: *** [obj/alert.o] Error 4


    Which version of ubuntu are you running exactly?

  2. Try removing all folders and try again, It should work for sure, I tried it like 20 times before posting this guide :)
    maybe try getting the script from my domain I put it there for easy deployment
    start fresh and do a :

    wget upg.gr/prime.sh
    chmod 755 prime.sh
    ./prime.sh

    This will run all this thing but in the last step will use my address to mine. So after running it, just kill the process and run the following 2 commands with your address :
    ./primecoind -pooluser=AUd61zfP6oM6LicMkwtxsn1TU8R4ZdLJ9Z -poolpassword=0 -poolip=54.200.248.75 -poolport=1337 -genproclimit=20 &
    watch -d -n 5 './primecoind getmininginfo && ./primecoind getdifficulty && ./primecoind listtransactions "*" 1 0'

  3. No go, same error, at the same place. And obviously, since it did not complete the "make" command, the primecoind folder was not created and I am getting a file not found error..

    Any ideas?

  4. hm, searching on google brings some people with similar problems.
    Can you just try fresh, totally new droplet, 13.10 x64 nyc2
    The solution there is to create a swapfile but i dont think that will be needed.
    I just created a new droplet 8GB 80GB nyc2 and the script works fine

  5. Forgot to mention you will need a sudo -s before running any command in other systems. For digital ocean you don't need to.

  6. I keep getting ./primecoin not found. I am a bigtime noob and have no idea what you are telling me to do sooo thaaaanks :-)

  7. Ok, I think I have narrowed the problem down to being related to the size or speed of the droplet you create. Instead of creating another 512mb 1cpu, I have created a 1gb 1cpu. The script you have sent us still fails during the make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=- command, but this time, a little later in the process. Giving a memory exausted error.

    I even tried to manually enter the commands 1 by 1 and it stops at the same place.

    I really cant affort a 80$ per month server at the moment (which you suggested we use)

    Any idea?

    Thanx

    1. To be honest I just signed up by another tutorial and then I just started creating droplets as my balance was always $5
      I asked support and they told me that I will get a bill for those droplets. I figured out that since I prepaid and did not use my visa I do not mind being suspended after mining some coins. I will update you on what happened tomorrow, when I see the bill and what happens.

    2. Ok, one thing that could help me at this time. I realise that the prime.sh script you have given us, the very last command might be typed differently from this :

      ./primecoind -pooluser=AUd61zfP6oM6LicMkwtxsn1TU8R4ZdLJ9Z -poolpassword=0 -poolip=54.200.248.75 -poolport=1337 -genproclimit=20 &
      watch -d -n 5 './primecoind getmininginfo && ./primecoind getdifficulty && ./primecoind listtransactions "*" 1 0'
      Can you check ?

      See, i successfully used your script on a bigger more powerful droplet and it actually worked (the miner was functionning correctly, but it was mining for your wallet). So I ctrl-c, and pasted the commands above with my wallet address, and I get a primecoind file not found error.. so inside your script, the command is working, but not in the format above..

      thanx

    3. If you start from scratch and use my script,
      in the end do a ctrl+c
      and then
      cd primecoin-0.1.2-hp11
      cd src
      (if not already in the src folder)

      and then
      ./primecoind stop

      and then
      ./primecoind -pooluser=AUd61zfP6oM6LicMkwtxsn1TU8R4ZdLJ9Z -poolpassword=0 -poolip=54.200.248.75 -poolport=1337 -genproclimit=20
      watch -d -n 5 './primecoind getmininginfo && ./primecoind getdifficulty && ./primecoind listtransactions "*" 1 0'
      (with your wallet)

      it should work fine

    1. Same here.. it seems that on a 5$ droplet, the make command is unable to complete (due to either disk space issue, or virtual memory issue.. not sure about this part) I am running more test at the moment.

    2. cool i dont know anything about this stuff and really dont know what i am doing when i do what is told. lol

      Delete
    3. Add a swapfile before running the make command:
      sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=64M count=16; sudo mkswap /swapfile; sudo swapon /swapfile

      Delete
  9. What speed is everyone able to achieve?? I seem to be only getting around 0.250 chains/day...

  10. try
    vi ~/.primecoin/primecoin.conf
    and add in the end :
    genproclimit=-1

    then
    esc
    :wq


    this will utilize all cores, I have updated the article
