Depending on your GPU, you will need to download a specific miner. In any case, create a folder with all the files you downloaded. In that folder, create a .bat file (ie. “miningsparks.bat”) and insert the command line for your chosen miner (see below). Save it, then use that file to launch the miner. There is no need to register an account. The only thing you must provide is a valid Sparks address to receive payments (replace YOUR_SPARKS_ADDRESS with an actual Sparks address).
If you have an Nvidia (GeForce) GPU: you will need to have CUDA installed. Check the CUDA version that is compatible with your chosen mining app.
If you choose Cryptodredge, insert the following line in your .bat file:
CryptoDredge -a neoscrypt -o stratum+tcp://mining.sparkspay.io:4212 -u YOUR_SPARKS_ADDRESS -p c=SPK
If you prefer CCminer, insert the following line in your .bat file:
ccminer -a neoscrypt -o stratum+tcp://mining.sparkspay.io:4212 -u YOUR_SPARKS_ADDRESS -p c=SPK
If you have an AMD (Radeon) GPU: you may use the following mining app:
Claymore’s miner (use latest version). Insert the following two lines in your .bat file:
start config.dll -pool stratum+tcp://mining.sparkspay.io:4212 -wal YOUR_SPARKS_ADDRESS -psw c=SPK
