Join a pool:
Visit the pools page to download the pool client and start mining YadaCoins instantly.
Solo mining / Create a Pool:
Joining a pool is the easiest and fastest way to mine YadaCoins but if your computer is a monster then perhaps you can win blocks on your own. The instructions below are for those who want to run full nodes. You do not need to keep reading below if you join a pool. You can stop here and goto the pools page.
Ubuntu 16.04 / 18.04
apt-get update apt-get install docker docker-compose cd ~ mkdir YADA cd YADA wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pdxwebdev/yadacoin/master/docker/docker-compose.yml docker-compose build docker-compose up
Windows 10 64-bit
Download and install docker: https://download.docker.com/win/stable/Docker%20for%20Windows%20Installer.exe
start -> run -> "cmd" [enter] cd /your/download/folder docker-compose build docker-compose up
After you're setup
Verify your public IP address and port are listed in the peer list at YadaCoin's peer list
Note: Your serve process must be publicly accessible. If the serve process stops running or you're behind a firewall, the network will kick you from the peer list after too many failed attempts at sending you blocks.

Open three terminal windows and in the first terminal window, execute this command:
YadaCoinConfig.exe auto > config.json
Then in that same terminal, execute this command.
YadaCoin.exe serve config.json
Then in the second terminal, execute this command.
YadaCoin.exe consensus config.json
Wait approximately 10 minutes for a new block to be found by the network then you'll start syncing.
Once the countdown reaches zero, you'll be ready to start mining.
In the third terminal window, execute this command:
YadaCoin.exe mine config.json
Open a terminal window and execute this command:
wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pdxwebdev/yadacoin/master/setup.sh | bash
This will start the serve, consensus, and mining processes. You can check their status with the following commands:
sudo service yadacoin-serve status
sudo service yadacoin-consensus status
sudo service yadacoin-mine status
