Mine Raptoreum on Akash Network
How to Mine Raptoreum (RTM) on Akash Network
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.
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.
- 2.Send 10 ATOM to your new Cosmos wallet address inside Keplr (this address will start with cosmos).
- 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.
Once you have set up your Keplr wallet and imported the address to Cloudmos you are ready to create your first deployment. Follow the instructions in Cloudmos 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.
- port: 4048
- global: true
- "POOL=suprnova" #You can enter custom pool here, otherwise suprnova nearest location will be used
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.
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 Cloudmos.
You can deploy more CPUs to mine faster.
units: 1.0 # Max cpu units is 10
Or increase the replica count from count: 1 to count: 2.
count: 1 # Multiplier for cpu:units
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.
We recommend you check MiningPoolStats for the most up-to-date list of mining pools.
