A docker image for mining Burstcoin
Full Description

fayf/burstcoinminer

Github link: https://github.com/fayf/docker-burstcoinminer

A docker image for mining Burstcoin using only the CPU. Based on Ubuntu 16.04 and creepMiner. The miner binary is currently built from source using this commit.

How to use

The image's entrypoint expects to find /conf/mining.conf and uses that as the configuration file for the miner. A sample configuration file is provided, but you'll have to change the following:

  • Pool / submission address (usually the same)
  • Target deadline
  • Plotfile locations (you can put the plotfiles in a subdirectory under conf, or mount additional volumes and point to them if necessary)
  • Web server address (OPTIONAL - you'll have to set it to the ip address of the host computer AND forward the port to make it accessible)

Example

If /homes/andrew/burstcoin/conf on the host machine with IP 192.168.1.100 contains:

mining.conf (same as sample)
plots/
  <plotfiles>

Then, executing:

docker run -it --rm -v "/homes/andrew/burstcoin/conf":"/conf" -p 8080:8080 fayf/burstcoinminer

will start a miner using the plotfiles, and make available a webserver at http://192.168.1.100:8080 where you can see the miner at work.

Docker tags

The default image uses AVX2 extensions. If these are not available to you, use the no-avx version of the image.
