All I want to do is run the miner in CPU (without mining any real coins, no online pool, and no wallet) without connecting to any online miner. I tried using XMRig miner to do a localhost run but setting up the localhost to mimic a miner was not an option.

How can the localhost mimic the mining pool to miner so that the miner runs in the system?

  • you can search for mining-pool-software in the internet. as an alternativ you can implement the Stratum mining protocol but i think this is very difficult. – anion Jun 5 '18 at 12:46
  • What exactly are you trying to mine? Do you have a node that you are pointing to? – JBaczuk Jun 6 '18 at 4:47
  • I am just trying to run the cryotonight algorithm in XMRig miner. I want to point to localhost as the mining pool but I am not sure what changes to make to local host so that the miner takes it as an input. – Gworld Jun 6 '18 at 16:55
