Step 1 - Create a wallet

Currently, there is no wallet with native ETHW support. You could generate a wallet address on a crypto exchange, for example Binance, OKX or ByBit. We recommend to use an Ethereum wallet that supports custom RPC, for example Metamask. Add a custom network using this tutorial and ETHW network details.

  • Network Name: ETHW-mainnet
  • New RPC URL:
  • Chain ID: 10001
  • Currency Symbol: ETHW
  • Block Explorer URL(Optional):

Step 2 - Download mining software

Quick start - Download ready to go version of the GPU Miner (archive password - 2miners).

For Nvidia GPU's we recommend T-Rex (Guide - How to use T-Rex) or GMiner (Guide - How to use GMiner).
For AMD GPU's we recommend lolMiner (Guide - How to use lolMiner) or GMiner (Guide - How to use GMiner).

Step 3 - Edit the bat file

Use YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS that you've created on Step 1.
Example: 0x00192Fb10dF37c9FB26829eb2CC623cd1BF599E8
If you want, you can Change RIG_ID in the bat file. Specify the name of the rig as you want it to be shown in miner's statistics page. This field is not mandatory. You could leave it empty.
Length of RIG_ID - Maximum 32 characters. Use English letters, numbers and symbols "-" and "_".
Example: rig-1
