WePayBTC - highest profits for our miners

Revolutionary new algorithm-switching multipool. Flat rate daily payouts in Bitcoin.

Here are the steps to start mining:

1. Make sure you have AMD videocards. Our miner doesn’t work with other brands of GPUs, CPUs or ASICs (Baikal miner is NOT supported).


2. Install sgminer 7.3.0 from here (Windows binary: zip [18 MB]) or build yourself from our github repository.

We also have BAMT (bootable USB linux distro for mining) setup instructions here and PIMP instructions here. The instructions are for sgminer3 so you need to type sgminer7 instead of sgminer3 in appropriate steps.


3. Pick a stratum server closest to you. Fast connection to a stratum server will give you less rejected shares and thus more profit.

There are 5 servers currently: San Francisco (sf), New York (ny), Paris (pa), London (lo) and Amsterdam (am). We recommend you to ping the servers and figure out which one gives you best speed (time=XXX value is the smallest).

Note: you don’t need to specify backup servers, they are set up automatically (4 backup servers).


4 You can specify sgminer parameters from a command line or edit sgminer.conf. There are 3 important parameters to set:

  • your bitcoin wallet address (-u parameter)
  • your email (-p parameter)
  • server (-o parameter)

For example:

  sgminer.exe -o sf -u 1A2RCXvNBLfrFmPKCniGV5j8nTnnJMJXYy -p wepaybtc@gmail.com

Make sure you specified your wallet address correctly! We already had 5! problems with invalid addresses.


Important: server names must be provided in short format, which is usually a 2 character city abbreviation (one of: sf, ny, da, pa, lo, si, am and legacy). For example, it is just “-o sf” for San Francisco stratum. Usually, you had to provide a full server URL starting from stratum+tcp:// and having port specified. This is not the case with WePayBTC sgminer. Two-character server code is all you need.

Optional: you can add a suffix to your wallet address if you have more than one rig. Use this format: YOURWALLET_RIGNAME (for example: 1A2RCXvNBLfrFmPKCniGV5j8nTnnJMJXYy_myRig1). This way you’ll be able to see statistics on each particular rig.


4. Run sgminer. It should start and show you lots of “Accepted” lines.


5. If the application can’t run and you have AMD videocard, please raise a ticket in our support portal and we will be happy to help. Make sure you provide a screenshot of the error message, videocard name and your command line. Otherwise we would not be able to tell you what went wrong. Tickets like “I have Windows 7 and AMD videocard and your miner doesn’t work. Please help.” are not informative enough.


6. If all is ok and you’re getting “accepted” lines, you can check your statistics on the pool that you’re connecting to (see links above).


7. BTC Payouts are processed once a day and minimal payout is 0.0001 BTC (smaller amounts cannot be confirmed by Bitcoin network, as they are considered “dust”).


8. Miners with BTC payouts will see BTC per day value  in the sgminer window, which is approximately how much you’re going to earn in 24 hours.



* You can see btc-sgminer running with two videocards (7950 and R9 290) on the screenshot to the left.

* Notice the BTC per day value in the top right corner of btc-sgminer. That’s roughly how much you should be receiving per day with your hardware

* You don’t see MH/s values anymore. They are superseded by “your speed relative to the reference videocard”. Our reference videocard is Sapphire AMD R9 290 Tri-X OC. It’s speed is taken as 100%. The command line for reference speed measurement is: sgminer.exe -o sf -I 22 -u 1A2RCXvNBLfrFmPKCniGV5j8nTnnJMJXYy -p wepaybtc@gmail.com. No overclocking of any kind was done for the reference speed measurement.
