How to enable automatic payouts?

Go to Settings tab on My account page. For given coin set proper Payout address, select Auto payout checkbox checked. Also set Payout threshold to value greater than or equal Minimum Payout Threshold ( Reward System table on page: https://coinotron.com/app?action=home ). Click Save button below grid. Now your payouts are locked. To unlock them, please follow the instructions in email we've sent to email address registered with your account.

Why are my payouts locked?

Whenever you change payout address or enable auto payouts. your payouts and further modification of those fields are disabled. They will stay "locked" until you unlock them using special code sent to your email address. In order to unlock payouts, please login to your Coinotron account using your default web browser and open unlock link from that email. Your payouts will be unlocked and coins sent within 120 min.

How to enable monitoring of your miners.

Go to Workers tab on My account page. For given worker simply set checked checkbox in Monitoring column. From now on, everytime hashrate of miners pointed to that worker drop more than 30% email with notification will be sent to you.

What is Two-Factor Authentication?

Two-factor authentication is a system that requires you to prove your identity when changing withdrawal address, in addition to inputting your normal account name and password. This is done using an app that you install on a mobile device. Apple iOS, Google Android, and Microsoft Windows Phone are all supported. The app provides a special code that you are asked to enter when you are changing withdrawal address. This code is unique to your account and changes every 30 seconds. This extra layer of security will help keep your account safe by requiring mobile verification in addition to your regular log-in credentials.

How does the Google Authenticator work?

First, you will log in to Coinotron as normal, with your account name and password. Whenever you want to change your Payout Address or Payout Threshold, you will be asked for a six-digit numeric code from the authenticator. At this point, simply enter the code provided by the authenticator to proceed. This effectively prevents attackers from unauthorized use of your account.
*Disabling auto payouts can be done without entering code from the authenticator.

How do I get the Google Authenticator?

Visit the app store for your mobile platform of choice, and locate the Google Authenticator app. This app is provided free of charge.
Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.authenticator2
You can also use any desktop client which implements Google Authenticator TOTP algorithm.

Genoil's ethminer in Stratum mode

We strongly recommend you this way of mining ethereum.

Advantages of Stratum mining:

  • reduction of orphaned and uncle blocks
  • increased earnings ( up to 10%-20% )
  • stratum uses much less bandwidth than getwork protocol

It is really easy to set up. We suggest using latest version ( which currently is ethminer-0.9.41-genoil-1.0.5 ) available here: https://github.com/Genoil/cpp-ethereum/tree/master/releases

and start mining using following commands:

ethminer -G -S coinotron.com:3344 -O username.workername:workerpassword

More details you can find here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1368785.0

Ethereum Stratum mining proxy

Advantages of Ethereum Stratum mining:

  • reduction of orphaned and uncle blocks
  • increased earnings ( my estimate is 5%-10% )
  • stratum uses much less bandwidth than getwork protocol

It is really easy to set up. Just download mining_proxy.exe: proxy

and start mining using following commands:

mining_proxy.exe -o coinotron.com -p 3344
ethminer.exe --farm-recheck 200 -G -F http://127.0.0.1:8332/username.workername:workerpassword

More details you can find here: https://github.com/Coinotron/eth-stratum-mining-proxy

Ethereum mining

You should use ethminer. You can mine either on CPU or on GPU. GPU mining notice: "The algorithm is memory hard and in order to fit the DAG into memory, it needs 1-2GB of RAM on each GPU. If you get Error GPU mining. GPU memory fragmentation? you haven't got enough memory."

ethminer https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/wiki/Mining

1. Install local wallet - geth

Linux and OSX:
bash <(curl https://install-geth.ethereum.org -L)

Windows:
Install -> https://chocolatey.org
choco install geth-stable -version 1.0.1.3

Create account:
http://ethereum.gitbooks.io/frontier-guide/content/creating_accounts.html

How to check balance ?
geth console
Now you are in geth console and paste
web3.eth.getBalance(web3.eth.accounts[0])

Other useful things https://github.com/ethereum/wiki/wiki/JavaScript-API

2. Install ethminer

Linux:
sudo apt-get clean
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum-qt
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cpp-ethereum

Windows:
download https://build.ethdev.com/builds/Windows%20C++%20develop%20branch/Ethereum-win64-latest.exe
run Ethereum-win64-latest.exe
install only ethminer

3. Create account on coinotron.com

Setup new worker for ETH. Enter your newly created account in ETH payout address on My account page.
Alternatively you can use exchange account address ( This is not recommended if you are not sure if exchange can change your deposit address on their own )

NiceHash cloud mining support

Our Ethereum pool supports Stratum protocol introduced by NiceHash. Just use our standard Eth port 3344.
If you are interested in buying Ethereum hashing power to mine Ethereum even without having physical miners visit: https://www.nicehash.com

You can also use their fork of Genoil's ethminer on your own rigs. We suggest using latest version available here https://github.com/nicehash/cpp-ethereum/releases

More details about ETH Stratum here: https://forum.ethereum.org/discussion/7346/bounty-for-ethereum-pool-operators-to-add-nicehash-compatibility#latest

DAG file issues

If your miner prints this message:
"Creating one big buffer for the DAG Allocating/mapping single buffer failed with: clCreateBuffer(-61). GPU can't allocate the DAG in a single chunk. Bailing."
Add following commands to bat you are using to start miner.

setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

You can also add this parameter to your miner start command:

--cl-extragpu-mem 0
