Mine Raptoreum on Akash Network
How to Mine Raptoreum (RTM) on Akash Network

Why use Akash?

Welcome Raptoreum miners! Akash is a decentralized marketplace of compute with thousands of CPU's ready for small and large deployments. Raptoreum mining can be deployed on the network successfully using this guide. Akash is a part of the Cosmos ecosystem of blockchains.

Windows/Linux/Mac Users

  1. 1.
    Install Keplr wallet as a browser plugin
  2. 2.
    Install Akashlytics and import your AKT wallet address from Keplr
For additional help we recommend you follow our full deployment guide in parallel with this guide.

How does this work?

Akash uses its blockchain to manage your container deployment and accounting. To deploy on Akash you will need to fund your wallet with at least 10 AKT. Each time you create a deployment, 5 AKT will be used for escrow and to fund the deployment. If the deployment is cancelled, the balance of the escrow is returned to you. You can spin up deployments without worrying about any long term contracts and you can cancel anytime.

Default wallet

Akash uses Keplr as the desktop wallet. Advanced users can follow the CLI wallet instructions.

Quickest way to get more AKT

To fund your deployment you will need AKT in your account. The fastest way to do that is in one of the following two ways.

Buy on an Exchange

  1. 1.
    Install Keplr
  2. 2.
    Buy AKT on an exchange
  3. 3.
    Withdraw your AKT to your Keplr wallet

Swap from ATOM to AKT

  1. 1.
    Install Keplr.
  2. 2.
    Send 10 ATOM to your new Cosmos wallet address inside Keplr (this address will start with cosmos).
  3. 3.
    Go to Osmosis Assets > next to Cosmos Hub - ATOM click on Deposit. This step will deposit ATOM from your Keplr wallet onto the Osmosis platform. Press Connect Wallet to connect your Keplr wallet to Osmosis.
  4. 4.
    Now go back to Osmosis Homepage and ensure ATOM > AKT is selected to complete the swap. This step swaps your ATOM you deposited onto the Osmosis platform into any other supported coin.
  5. 5.
    Return to the Osmosis Assets page to withdraw your AKT to your Keplr wallet. This step withdraws AKT from the Osmosis platform back into your Keplr wallet. You can now send AKT to Akashlytics

Deploying on Akash

Once you have set up your Keplr wallet and imported the address to Akashlytics you are ready to create your first deployment. Follow the instructions in Akashlytics to create a certificate, then click on Create Deployment.
When prompted to Choose Template select Empty as we will copy-and-paste the deploy.yaml file from this repository (listed below). Choose Empty for the template and paste the deploy.yaml file adjusting your wallet address and pool variables as desired.

Choosing a provider

Akash is a marketplace of compute. Providers set their own prices for compute resources. We recommend you try different providers and check your logs after deployment to determine the hashrate.

How to speed up mining?

Change the tuning option

TUNE=no-tune variable in deploy.yaml to TUNE=full-tune
No tune will start mining right away - with no performance tuning of the container. Without this expect a lower hashrate. Be warned, tuning can take at least 3 hours before mining begins - so do not expect to see hashrate on the pool immediately. You can check your logs in Akashlytics.

Increase the deployment size on Akash

You can deploy more CPUs to mine faster.
1
cpu:
2
units: 1.0 # Max cpu units is 10
Copied!
Or increase the replica count from count: 1 to count: 2.

akash:

profile: raptoreum
5
count: 1 # Multiplier for cpu:units
Copied!

Check your profitability

After your deployment has finished tuning or is displaying results on the pool you can check your profitability by inputting your hashrate from the log file.

What is the best pool? Where do I solo mine?

We recommend you check MiningPoolStats for the most up-to-date list of mining pools.
