Here’s the changes since the last update :

  • Upstream to XMRig v6.7.0
  • Added compatibility to Apple M1 CPUs (Not tested yet)
  • Fixed ARM compilation errors
  • Fixed algo detection (and some other bugs) from command line

The fifth edition of XLArig with many fixes and improvements.

This release includes:

  • Upstream to XMRig v5.4.0
  • Several DefyX optimizations

A Mining Setup Guide for Scala XLA

A Mining Setup Guide for Scala XLA

Scala developed a custom CPU and ARM-friendly algorithm called Panthera which comes into action when you mine on your PC or mobile device.

In this article, we want to give you a little guidance on how to set up your CPU miner.

1. Download Scala XLA Wallet

Remote nodes: If you don’t want to download the node list on your computer, you have the possibility to use remote nodes.

  • Official: mine.scalaproject.io:8000
  • ScalaNode: scalanode.com:20189
  • XLANode: XLAnode.com:20189
  • EthosPool: scala.ethospool.org:11812
  • GTNL: daemon.pool.gntl.co.uk:11812
  • Teredic (Team Member): 164.68.115.234:11812

2. Download XLARig Miner

3. Running the mining software

To start the miner simply run the following command :

  • Windows
xlarig.exe -o mine.scalaproject.io:3333 -u YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS -p x --algo panthera

You can copy/paste this command in a batch file located in the same folder as xlarig.exe. Just create a new text file, paste the command and save it as .bat instead of .txt.

To improve your hashrate, you can enable Huge Pages. To do so, you have to run the batch file with Administration rights. For some reason, Windows may try to run the .exe in C:/windows/system32, so you have to add “@setlocal enableextensions @cd /d “%~dp0” to the batch file and restart your computer.

  • The batch file should look like this:
@setlocal enableextensions
@cd /d “%~dp0
xlarig.exe -o mine.scalaproject.io:3333 -u YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS -p x — algo panthera
  • Linux
./xlarig -o mine.scalaproject.io:3333 -u YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS -p x --algo panthera
  • MacOS
./xlarig -o mine.scalaproject.io:3333 -u YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS -p x --algo panthera

We recommend using a mining pool for mining since the results will be more steady than with solo mining. The official mining pool is pool.scalaproject.io.

To get more information about what port to use, you can head to https://pool.scalaproject.io/#getting_started
