How to Mine Yenten (YTN) on Ubuntu

Yenten is a relatively new Coin that has a great Motto

"a cryptocurrency of the cpu, by the cpu, for the cpu.
No ASIC. ASIC is for girls and kids."

It is quickly gaining traction and the Graphs speak for themselves: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/yenten/

I am writing this Guide because not enough documentation exists to get you started on Ubuntu, in English that is. Anyway, enough talk, let's get Mining.

1. Download latest Yenten miner source from here: https://github.com/conan-equal-newone/yenten/releases
At time of writing it was (https://github.com/conan-equal-newone/yenten/releases/download/1.1.0/yenten_ubuntu64_1.1.0.tar.gz)


2. Unzip and open terminal and go into the directory.

3. Run following commands
$ sudo apt install autoconf libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev openssl libssl-dev gcc gawk
$ chmod 700 *
$ echo> ChangeLog
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make

Now you should have an executable minerd, just choose a Pool and start mining. I personally use
https://bunnymining.work/yenten

Just register there, make a worker and then run miner like this:
./minerd -t 3 -o stratum+tcp://bunnymining.work:20333 -u divineslight.home -p home

Replace the -u and -p with your worker username and password, or Don't? :P

Happy Mining!

  1. Hello, thanks a lot for this tutorial
    However, when I try to execute "./autogen.sh", I have this error :

    "-bash: ./autogen.sh: No such file or directory"

    Any idea why ? What should I do ?

    Thanks a lot

    1. Hey,

      You might not be in the correct directory in the terminal. Because if you unzip it by right clicking and "Extract Here" it will create a folder within folder.

      For example if I downloaded and unzipped in my home directory, the correct path where all the actual files would be at: /home/divine/Downloads/yenten_minerd_source/yenten_miner

      So I'd just do this:
      cd ~/Downloads/yenten_minerd_source/yenten_miner

      And then to confirm just run "ls" it should list all files. among those should be autogen.sh, let me know if you need more assistance.

  2. I cannot for the life of me figure this out. Could you give me a step by step instruction from a fresh install of the latest Ubuntu. I am a complete noob with linux. I only know how to use sudo and cd,ls,pwd
