Stacks Mining Resources

Tips, tricks, and tools.

General Info

Stacks mining is currently available using the stacks-node executable from the stacks-blockchain repo.

There are two ways to obtain the software.

  1. Download the latest release from GitHub , which contains a ready-to-run program for your operating system.
  2. Build the code directly from GitHub, which requires more prerequisites but gives access to the latest fixes.

Option 1 is the fastest way to get things running, and preferable if you do not have experience with compiling software.

Option 2 is more advanced, requiring Rust, Git, and the correct build tools for your OS.

Note: the Stacks blockchain software and many accompanying tools require Node.js to be installed. Mac/Linux users are recommended to use nvm, whereas Windows users can download the software directly from the NodeJS website.
