We are all equally individual.

The RPi is super cool.

Operating System

First step is the choice of an image for the RPi, the current "stretch" images do not work out of the box.

To get the compilation working on Raspbian Stretch see this RPi Stretch Fix.

VeriCoin Wallet Installation

Version 1.7

Swap File adjustment:

 sudo nano /etc/dphys-swapfile 



to your desired size (100 means 100 MB).

Verium Wallet Installation

Updated for Version 1.1

The whole thing as a script: [Download Shell script], thanks to [mining-pool.ovh]

 wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/DJoeDt/verium/master/install_Verium_Wallet.sh
 chmod +x install_Verium_Wallet.sh

It will do what is described in the step-wise Manual Verium Wallet Installation .

In case you see ERRORS like -No such file... - it actually helps to run the script again since probably the installation of the dependencies failed.

Wallet Configuration & Usage

The wallet should run now, but we need to go to its directory

 cd verium/wallet/src

and get info about this by:

 ./veriumd getinfo 

Now stop the wallet

 ./veriumd stop

It is configured in

 nano verium.conf

scroll to its very end, the lines to configure are rpcuser=YourSoloMiningName rpcpassword=YourSoloMiningPassword rpcallowip=YourAccessIP rpcallowip=localhost You have to configure the IPs of the machines that should be able to connect. If you mine solo you have to come up with a username and a password for your miners to access the wallet.

Now start the wallet again


The most important thing right now is your wallets address gotten by

  ./veriumd getaddressesbyaccount ""

Finally backup by

 cp ~/.verium/wallet.dat somewhere/save/wallet.dat

To restore your wallet just do a fresh installation and replace the new wallet.dat with your saved one.

 ./veriumd help

will print a wall of text with commands and

Verium Miner Installation

The Mining software can be installed on the Pi in the same way it works on the Odroid XU4 (a high end SBC) - similarly on other Linux systems.

The whole thing as a script (RPi & ARM version): [Download Shell script]

 wget https://github.com/DJoeDt/verium/raw/master/install_Verium_Miner_ARM.sh
 chmod +x install_Verium_Miner_ARM.sh

It will do what is described in the following stepwise manual way.

In a Terminal start with (you need internet access)

 sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -f -y

During the download you could check out a [Mining Pool].

The Miner needs this

 sudo apt-get install git automake autoconf pkg-config libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev libssl-dev libgmp-dev

Special thanks go to birty again for his [guide].

Clone the verium Miner

 git clone https://github.com/effectsToCause/veriumMiner

Again time, so maybe check your wallet, the blocks and your wallets address.

For the RPi the Miner needs configuration. On a standard Linux machine just GOTO build.sh. Configure RPi here:

 nano veriumMiner/algo/scrypt.c



and change the succeeding lines (First into second)

 #define SCRYPT_MAX_WAYS 3
 #define SCRYPT_MAX_WAYS 1
 #define HAVE_SCRYPT_3WAY 1
 //#define HAVE_SCRYPT_3WAY 1
 #define scrypt_best_throughput() 3
 #define scrypt_best_throughput() 1
 void scrypt_core_3way(uint32_t *X, uint32_t *V, int N);
 void scrypt_core     (uint32_t *X, uint32_t *V, int N);

By this the settings are changed from 3-way to 1-way which uses less RAM per thread (128MB instead of 384, RPi can run 4 threads and only has 1GB RAM).

Now the second configuration is done in here

 nano veriumMiner/build.sh

and add -mfpu=neon

 ./configure --with-crypto --with-curl CFLAGS="-O2 $extracflags -DUSE_ASM -pg"
 ./configure --with-crypto --with-curl CFLAGS="-O2 $extracflags -DUSE_ASM -mfpu=neon -pg”

This enables the use of the ARM CPU feature NEON.

Finally it is time to build the miner (Linux GOTO here)

 cd veriumMiner

Ready to mine! Mine! Mine! But oh no, the blockchain download is not yet complete...

To start right away a pool is very helpful at this time.

To directly test the miner you can start with the following command, but be aware: it will mine for me ;)

 ./cpuminer -o stratum+tcp://pool-eu.bloxstor.com:3003 -u VEXMki29ycW5vSt3MmdM5iwHqsHux91EMr.Guide -p GuidePwd

Of course you want to mine for yourself, but you may consider that testline as a donation for this guide. Let's get you up and running, you need to know your wallets address, in the command above the cryptical sting after '-u ' is my wallets address. If you run your wallet by the verium deamon (veriumd) you run

 ~/verium/src/veriumd getaddressesbyaccount ""

and your address is in the reply.

At first you might want to watch the miners output in an ssh window. The second step would be to use nohup or tmux to suppress the output and run the miner in background. Finally you can add the command to /etc/rc.local (no nohup needed there).


If you run the wallet on e.g. Windows you open your Verium Vault and click on Receive in the menu to the left. On the right side your address will appear.

Once you got your address (I assume you have copied it) you are ready to choose a mining pool. The Bloxstor mining pool was my choice mainly because it has a very user friendly tool to get started. [Bloxstor Getting Started] It will guide you through the setup even better than I can and at the end it simply outputs your personal mining command.
