Mining Ellaism

Ellaism uses the ethash proof of work algorithm, the same algorithm used in Ethereum and Ethereum Classic.

Solo Mining

Follow the guide in Installation to either set up a Parity or Geth full node. After that, you can use any ethash miner (such as ethminer) to mine Ellaism. To mine using your GPU, run ethminer ethminer -G -F http://localhost:8545.


Pool mining helps miners to compensate “bad luck” and share “good luck” when it comes. Help is appreciated to keep the Dev Mining Pool running. This pool maintains several infrastructures on Ellaism, like the BTC Relay fetchd script, and contributes directly to the Dev Fund.

You can also check out the current pool hashrates in Explorer’s miners’ ranking. Pools have their own instructions of how to set your miners up.

Other pools may also have advantages in their setup or shares of mining fees. Contact [email protected] or ping @ellaismer on Discord if you want your pool added to this list.
