How To Use TeamRedMiner | Step-by-step Tutorial

hey everyone and welcome back 
to another mining chamber video   in today's video we are going to go over 
team red miners step by step and then i'll   give you guys my opinion on it as well as the 
pricing and everything you need to know about   using team red miner in general so now let's 
go ahead and get into it right after the intro team red miner is one of the most popular choices 
for amd gpus now as you can tell by the name team   red miner is made specifically for amd gpus so 
you can't use it for nvidia cards and if you have   nvidia card you can use a mix of two different 
software so you can run team red miner and trx   miner at the same time now at the time that i'm 
filming this video team red miner is at version   .8.3 and you can use this guide for any version 
that they release just make sure you always   download the latest version and any instructions 
that i go over here in this video you will be   able to use them in different operating systems 
as you can see it has built-in support for all   these different operating systems and you can 
just follow the same command line arguments the   same way in those different os's so now let's go 
ahead and talk about the fee structure and how   much team redminer costs to run as well as all the 
cryptocurrencies that they support so as you can   see here there's a lot of different algorithms 
that this miner supports and each one has their   own different percentage so if you look at the 
top you have first your ether on polaris gpus so   these are your rx 400 or 500 series and the fees 
for that is only 0.75 percent and that is for the   ethash algorithm so ethereum and any other coin 
that's running on the a dash algorithm and for   all the other gpus it's only one percent so it's 
also not so bad comparing to phoenix minor which   is only point seventy percent it's still not bad 
at all but it does have some benefits to it which   i will be talking about later on and if you're 
planning on mining ravencoin which is under that   kapow algorithm then that will be two percent in 
fees which is still not so bad and then you have   all these other algorithms if you do find it here 
then you know you can mine it and you can find the   fee next to it but generally for now you only 
want to focus on these top two because ethereum   is the most profitable to mine and then once that 
goes proof of stake then you can go ahead and take   a look at the other options now i do have a video 
on ethereum 2.0 coming out very soon so make sure   to subscribe so you don't miss that out as for 
the gpus that this miner supports it supports   almost all the amd's so whenever you see a new amd 
card comes out and it will show if it supports it   or not it might not be up to date with the 6000 
series cards and in that case you can just run   the miner test it out and if it doesn't work you 
can always get in touch with them on their discord   so that is a brief overview on team red miner i 
will give you guys my conclusion on it later on   whether you should be using it or not so before 
we get there i want to show you guys how to get a   quick start on team red miner to get started right 
away and then we're also going to take a deep dive   into the commands and show you guys the different 
commands and what you can use to help you mine   better but before we get into that let's go ahead 
and have a quick word from this video's sponsor   this video is sponsored by 
is an all-around platform for trading staking and   storing your cryptocurrency they also have visa 
cards which you can get by buying cro tokens and   holding it for some time these cards are accepted 
anywhere that accepts visa and they also come with   benefits based on which tier you get but one 
of the best ways that i found as a miner to   use is by utilizing their staking 
platform you can use their staking platform   to put your mining profits in there and then 
earn additional rewards on your mining profits   and it's super easy to get started with it simply 
mine to your wallet and then from there   you can stake as much as you want and earn 
interest they have difference taking options   and you can stick with a flexible plan which means 
you can get your money out anytime or you can do   it contract based which earns you more percentage 
so if you want to learn more and you want to see   which options they have for staking please feel 
free to use the link in the descriptions below and   download their app and then from there explore the 
options that you have now let's go ahead and get   right back into the video now the first step for 
every mining software is to download it and if you   don't find your way around to the download section 
all you have to do is just click on the releases   now generally when you look up team redminer 
download you will be in the releases section   anyways so just click on that and then you will 
be seeing something like this so now there's a   couple of things that you want to do when you're 
downloading a mining software just for your own   security and that is to verify the checksums now 
instead of having to go over through every video   and show you guys how to verify the checksums 
i decided to put it in the article for mining   with windows 10 on so all you 
need to do is just come to this article which   will be linked in the descriptions below and then 
go to the mining software section and then here   you will find a write-up on mining software as 
well as the different types of mining software   so you have the command line interface as well as 
the graphical interface miners so everything will   be covered here in general but mainly what you 
want is verifying the checksums if you scroll a   little bit lower you will find here the verifying 
check sums section and then in there you just   want to go ahead and follow the instructions now 
frankly the instructions are made for team red   miner so it will be easier to follow but even if 
you're using a different mining software it will   be all the same idea so just go ahead and follow 
that whenever you download the miner and then you   also want to do exclusions for your antivirus so 
this is not required unless you're having troubles   with downloading your mining software but if you 
want to make an excluded folder like i did on my   desktop folder then you can go ahead and do that 
and then exclude that folder from your antivirus   so this is just a way to avoid from having your 
antivirus deleting your miners folder and the   reason that you want to verify your checksums is 
to make sure that you have the authentic version   of a team red miner or whatever mining software 
you're using so i highly recommend going through   these steps if you're downloading the mining 
software to make sure that you're on the safer   side so now back to team red miner i will go 
ahead and download the zip folder from here and   then i'll be saving it in my miners folder on 
the desktop that's excluded from my antivirus   so now at this step is where you want to go ahead 
and verify your checksums and if you want to do   that like i mentioned just go on the link in 
the descriptions below so now let's go ahead   and get into the quick start for team red miner 
and then talk about all the different files that   are in here so to get started with team red miners 
super quickly all you have to do is just find the   batch file that you want to use so for example if 
you're mining ethereum you want to go ahead and   use start eth and if you're mining ethereum with 
four gigabyte cards you can use start eats with   four gigabytes and then ravencoin you can just 
use kapow so it's all the same concept and then   mtp is for firo and all these different coins that 
you can just find them all here and if you want to   dual mine ethereum and zell you can use this file 
so you just get the idea so whichever file you   pick for example here i want to use start ethereum 
and just mine ethereum with my 6800 i would just   go ahead right click on it and then do edit 
so after you do edit you will see this pops up   just go ahead and click on more info and then run 
anyways this is just because the team redminer is   not verified publisher for windows so they always 
will give you these warnings but it's completely   fine to just skip them so now once you open the 
file you will see something like this so up here   you have your environmental variables and then 
down here you'll have additional information that   you want to use for your miner so all this stuff 
right here is just commented out so this will not   be read by the software at all even if you delete 
all this you'll be completely fine and then you're   just left off with this string right here so here 
in this string you see that there's a pool address   as well as a wallet address and all you have to 
do is just change those two and then run it so for   your wallet address you can use your own wallet 
and if you don't know which wallet you want to use   you can go back to and then 
click on platforms right here and after you go to   platforms you will find multiple different options 
for wallets so there is two wallets here you can   just download any of them and then use the address 
that you want to mine to so for example since   we're mining ethereum then you will be using your 
ethereum wallet address so now back to the batch   file you just want to go ahead and copy paste your 
address here and after you change that address you   want to change the name of the worker as well 
or you can keep it the same way so this is just   something for you to track your mining rigs so in 
this case i'm mining on my computer so i would say   my pc or you can name it whatever you want like 
i mentioned so this is not important at all and   then you have your pool address so for your pool 
address you want to go ahead and select the right   pool now for selecting a mining pool you don't 
want to over complicate it just pick any pool and   go with it honestly the difference between all the 
pools is very small just make sure that you select   the server that's closest to you so i have a full 
video on pools if you want to learn more about the   specifics but for now for the quick setup all 
you have to do is just change the region based   on your region so since i'm in north america 
all i have to do is just change the eu to us1   and then for the port you can leave it the way 
it is and run it if you have any issues with   that just add one before the fours and then you'll 
be fine so now i can go ahead and save this file   go back to the folder and then just run this 
file and now congratulations you started mining   so you can see here sometimes it will give you a 
warning it says crossfire auto link is active and   then in that case you just want to add this 
command so go ahead and close the miner and   then open up the file again and then just edit 
that file and add the command at the end after   x so just after x say dash dash enable and then 
compute and then you can just save the file again   and then run the file again and then the first 
time you run it after adding enable compute   it might close right away on you and that's fine 
just go ahead and run it again and it will be good   to go so now your computer slash mining rig 
is mining to that address on that mining pool   and whenever you want to stop mining simply just 
close out the terminal so now that is it for the   teamred miner quickstart now we can go ahead and 
talk about the specifics and all the commands that   you want to know when you're using teamred miner 
so the first thing that i like to do when it comes   to a folder like this i don't like it when it's 
messy like that so i would just go ahead and click   on the type right here and then i would just take 
all the text documents and create a new folder   and then just put them in there so i will name 
the folder docs and then i will take all the text   documents in here and then move them to that docs 
folder so now it's a little bit cleaner here and   you only have is just your batch files which you 
need for mining and i wouldn't move any of these   files here unless you want to create shortcuts 
which is completely fine but just don't move them   because they do rely on the position of the folder 
itself because they are all calling back to the   team redminer application so now that we have all 
the docs in our folder let's go and go through the   different documentations and then just talk about 
all these txt documents so you know what they're   for so there's a lot of different functionality 
here and we're not going to go through all of   it because it will take very long time but as you 
can see if you just open up one of the documents   for example here o2 lycos tuning you open that up 
you'll see here that it's just a quick pointers on   how to tune for the algorithm that's used by ergo 
now if you just read through it you'll see here   there's polaris tuning and it'll tell you what you 
need to do for polaris cards it's a really nice   documentation that gives you a really good idea 
of what you need to do for different algorithms   and then if you go down to dual cell mining you 
will see here it will give you some different   information for zell mining which is also very 
useful and here that's how you put in your   addresses and everything like that now other than 
these of course you can also use the example batch   files here so it's a lot easier for you so for 
example if you're trying to use a four gigabyte   card you just edit that and then from there you'll 
be able to see what different commands that they   used so here you can see for four gigabyte cards 
they use each allocation epoch and then they also   use it 4g max allocation as well as one right 
here for restart gpus that is just mainly for   doing the 4 gigabyte cards so this is probably 
the best way you want to use this as a guide is by   going through these files and using the specific 
commands for them now if we go back to the docs we   can also see eth tuning guide which is nice for 
overclocking your gpus for ethereum mining you   can also go to for overclocking 
and then go to gpu mining and then gpu overview so   after you go here you'll find different gpus with 
their overclock settings just click on it and then   you'll find the specific overclock settings for 
your card so now back to the documentations again   you also have things such as map your gpus which 
helps you map whichever gpu is the one that's   showing up in the terminal and then finally the 
most important thing you have is the usage so the   usage is what contains all the different commands 
that team red miner has so here you find dash dash   algo or dash a which all stands for the same thing 
so if you see two different ones like that it's   either you could do algo or dash a and they're 
both going to serve the same function so there's   a lot of different commands in here but we're 
only going to go through the ones that you want   to know so won't take as long because the options 
that you want to know are very minimal so what you   need to know first is the algorithm one of course 
and that's when you want to change the crypto that   you're mining so here for example i'll go ahead 
and open up two different files so you have the   kapow one and then you also have the ethereum one 
so if you check the kapow and ethereum you'll see   here that they both have two different things that 
are running for the different algorithms so you   have dash a kapow and then here you have dash a e 
so that will be how you specifically pick whatever   algorithm you want to mine and then place in the 
pool address and wallet address made for that   algorithm and coin that you're trying to mine 
so for example if you're trying to mine another   coin that's in the e dash algorithm then all you 
have to do is just change your address for that   coin and then find a pool that supports that coin 
that you're trying to mine and then you're good to   go so that's for the algorithm command now other 
than the algorithm command there's also the pools   config option which starts with dash o now for 
this one is for your pool address so you do dash o   and then you put the pool address so it can either 
be straight in plus tcp or straighten plus ssl   which will be one for ssl links and one for tcp 
links you can also add more than one pool by just   doing dash o again and then putting a dash u and 
a dash p now dash u and dash p means username and   password so generally the password is always x for 
all the pools so you can see here dash px so you   can always keep that as default x unless you make 
an account with the pool then you want to go ahead   and put your password and as for your username 
right here that will always be your wallet address   so it says dash you and then you put your wallet 
address and that will be your username and then   whatever you put after this period is going to be 
your worker so this is the worker name and you can   even completely remove it and you'll be fine so if 
you do decide to put more than one pool you want   to go ahead and do dash o after the password and 
then just add a username and a password as well   and the benefits of that is if your first pool 
goes down or they have like server disconnection   or anything like that then it will kick off 
the second pool so it's just like having a   backup plan now if you also go a little bit lower 
you'll see here there's some global pool options   and those generally run in the background so you 
don't need to touch anything at all but these just   will help you if your pool disconnects or anything 
like that or you get a lot of rejected chairs   then it will reset the pool connection and then 
run again so you can feel free to change the   default values with whichever way you want now if 
you go a little bit lower here you have your gpu   option now this is one of the important commands 
that you want to know now for the dash devices   or dash d this is for selecting whichever gpu you 
want to mine with so if you have two gpus in your   pc and you're not mining on a mining rig where 
you want to utilize all the cards then you can   just do dash dash devices and then i would say for 
example zero and it will only use the first gpu   because the numbering here starts from zero 
so it would start zero one two three four and   then you can just select your gpus like that and 
what you can also use this for is for mining two   different algorithms so instead of doing dash a 
ether you can also do dash a kapow and then put   number one for your devices and run two of these 
bad files you'll have one mining ethereum and   then one card mining kapow they also have a list 
devices command which you can see all the gpus   that are triggered and the number that they're 
next to and other than that if you go a little   bit lower you'll see the fan control options and 
these are just for controlling your fan honestly   i would just use these in the msi afterburner or 
whatever overclocking software that you're using   and then finally you have the watchdog options 
now the watchdog options is what monitors your   miner and restarts it if it needs to restart or 
turns it off when it reads a certain temperature   so these are just security measures that are 
built in place now you can go ahead and change   the numbers as you want but generally leaving it 
the way it is is completely fine and then after   that you'll just find the different e-options and 
different algorithm specific options so these like   i said they're just better to go through them with 
the batch files now that doesn't mean all this   information is useless but if you do want to read 
through them and just understand what everything   does then this is a good way to do so although 
there's one option that's pretty important here   and this is the eth config so as you can see 
here it says that there's more information on   this in the ether tuning guide dot txt so let's 
go ahead and move on to that file right now   now you can see here that this eth config is also 
set automatically by the miner startup and what   that does is it finds the specific value for 
configuration for your gpu that works best for   it so this is great for radeon 7s rx 5700 xt's and 
all the 5000 series cards now these modes do boost   your hash rate and they do help you use less power 
as well which is great so you don't really have to   touch this command either because it sets it up 
automatically but it's just something that you   want to know because this is one benefit that 
team redminer has for the amd cards now if you   keep scrolling down the usage txt file you'll 
just find algorithm specific options so proc   power kryptonite options and just keeps going on 
and on so all these commands i'm not going to go   through because honestly you won't be using them 
as often at all to mine ethereum all you have to   do is the quick startup but this is just things 
that you want to know in general when you're using   teamredminer now that covers the commands and all 
the documentation txt files so now basically that   is it for teamredminer if you guys have any 
questions please let me know in the comments   below and if there's anything that i missed out 
you can also let me know in the comments below   now there is some advanced stuff that you can use 
with teamredminer that also has to do with the api   so with these apis you can get information on your 
gpus and use them with different applications that   you want to use but this is something i'm not 
going to be covering but i will be doing a video   on it in the future showing an example use case 
for this so now as a conclusion what do i think   about team red miner honestly it is my go-to for 
amd cards now on hive os or windows i use team   red miner especially for my radeon 7 rig so with 
my radiant sevens i used to use phoenix miner for   them and then team redminer implemented that rig 
config that i was just talking about now once team   redminer implemented that and then i used them i 
went from 90 mega hash to almost 100 mega hash on   the radiant sevens so using team red miner for the 
radian sevens definitely boosts your hash rate so   i would recommend it for that as well as any amd 
cards in general so it's definitely a great mining   software for amd cards and especially that it's 
made only for amd cards they can focus on tuning   it down for those cards now same goes with trx 
miner it's made only for nvidia cards so they're   really good for nvidia and i will be making a 
guide on that next so now that is it for the video   if you guys enjoyed this video please leave a 
thumbs up and if you're new here make sure to   subscribe and thank you guys so much for being 
awesome and i hope you have a wonderful day you
