it is fun to have Raspberry PI 3 do some mining for us... but before I go down with the tutorial please note you won't be earning something significant , its more of a fun thing. in this tutorial I will be giving example of mining electroneum on Raspberry PI 3 but you can also follow the same tutorial to mine monero etc on Rpi3

Mining on Raspberry Pi 3

How to Mine on Raspberry Pi 3

Carry on reading on how to setup your raspberry pi 3 to mine electroneum and/or other cryptocurrencies 

  • You need to have a bootable Raspberry PI 3 , you can install any of the official OS flavour provided in Raspberry website
  • Run these commands on your Raspberry Pi 3, line by line

If you are familiar with linux you will understand its nothing fancy here , we are just installing a bit of dependencies which are required by cpuminer-multi and after installing those we are just installing the script (autogen.sh , ./configure) 

Syntax : 

./minerd -a cryptonight -o stratum+tcp://electroneum.hashparty.io:3333 -u etnkM66fZa3crgsQLqkk7ec4m71czG3UC8yNV24v2omfZGQmhnekCVtZFDbJo48inZ3wP81fsbvF4CmNBUe9VkPb31ocMP9ajh -p x -t 4

-a cryptonight : This is the crypto type
-o stratum+tcp://electroneum.hashparty.io:3333 : This is the pool and port number
-u etnkM66fZa3crgsQLqkk7ec4m71czG3UC8yNV24v2omfZGQmhnekCVtZFDbJo48inZ3wP81fsbvF4CmNBUe9VkPb31ocMP9ajh : My wallet
-p x : generally the password is same 
-t 4 : Number of threads, 4 because the RPi 3 is a 4 core processor

Auto Script for Mining on Rasbperry Pi 3

If you are lazy you can use this MinerSetup.sh  which is a bash file to perform all the above steps automatically.

if you are even more lazy you can simply download minerd-multi and run "./minerd-multi --help" 

Hope you have fun mining on your Raspberry Pi 3

p.s. I have achieved maximum Hash Rate of 18.00 H/sec on Raspberry Pi 3 which isn't that bad too
