Pirl Masternodes

Masternode is a wallet with a blockchain duplicate, that holds a certain amount of coins and must be online 24/7. Masternode maintains network operation approving blocks and transactions, while its owner gets rewarded for this.

At the moment Pirl masternodes are in beta, but after the official launch, many would want to buy them, which means that the coin will rise in value.

To create a masternode, you need 20,000 Pirl, static IP, and some Linux knowledge.

Pirl: How Much can you Earn?

Since we expect the coin to rise in value, it is best to mine it on, and then resell it at a higher price. In the next months, Pirl will probably appear on major exchanges, which will have a positive effect on its rate.

If you mined HUSH with us, you probably know that it rose by 200% after the release of our publication.

You can calculate your reward on the website called ‘What to Mine.’ Insert your hashrate, click on ‘Calculate’ and you will see your estimated awards regarding the current exchange rate and mining difficulty.

The rewards are similar to the ones you get from other Equihash coins, and sometimes the daily rewards you get from Pirl may be even higher than those from Ethereum.

How To Create a Pirl Wallet

Method #1: Install wallet on PC

On the Pirl official website click ‘Download Wallet’ in the upper right corner and download the version for your OS. After installation, the program will download the full version of the Pirl blockchain to your PC. As of 01/06/2017, it takes up around 3.4 GB of space. This software will create an address for receiving coins as well.

Method #2: Set up an online wallet

If you have no wish or possibility to store a blockchain duplicate on your PC, you can set up a wallet on that is identical to the famous MyEtherWallet. In this case, you could manage your wallet right from the browser.

Method #3: Set up a wallet on an exchange

The easiest way is to create a wallet on the Cryptopia exchange. After registration go to the ‘Deposit’ page, search for Pirl, and get your address. Don’t worry if you see the warning against using your Cryptopia address for mining; you’ll get coins without problems regardless.

Claymore Configuration

If you want to mine Pirl using graphics cards, I recommend Claymore’s Dual Ethereum GPU Miner. It is regularly updated and supported by most pools with Ethash coins. The developer fee is 1%.

Step 1: Install Claymore’s Dual Ethereum GPU Miner

Step 2: Download or create bat file to launch miner

  • To make the launch process simpler, we will use a text file with .bat extension.
  • In the folder with your miner create a new file with the name of your choice and .bat extension. Or you can download it from the archive.

Why do you Need Bat File?

The miner works in the console and doesn’t have a visual interface. When you launch miner, you should “forward” settings to it, so that it operates correctly. Instead of using a command line to do it, you can create bat file with only one intended use — sending pool address, wallet number, rig name and other settings to your miner.

Add the following text to your bat file:

setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0 setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool -allcoins etc -eworker RIG_NAME -ewal WALLET_ADDRESS -epsw x

Miner Parameter Values


parameters for AMD




pool address & port

-eworker RIG_NAME

Remove rig name or add one of your own — 8 symbols max; use only Latin letters, numbers 0-9, underscore and hyphen.


Your Pirl wallet address.

-epsw x

Password for pool access.

Replace RIG_NAME and WALLET_ADDRESS with your names and save the file. It should look similar to this:

Step 3: Launch Miner

If everything was done right, by double-clicking on the bat file you will launch the command line and see the following:

To check if everything works correctly in the pool, go to and insert your wallet address in the search field in the upper right corner. Your statistics will appear in the pool as soon as your miner sends the first share. You will see it in the miner window — ‘Total Shares: 1’.

To see the real average speed in the pool, you should mine for a few hours. Speed in the pool is based on the number of sent solutions (shares) and may not always correspond to the speed you see in your miner software.

Pirl Mining Configuration in Hive OS

If you don’t use a rig as your primary computer, check out this review of the operating system for mining called Hive OS. It lets you administer and monitor your rigs much more efficiently than Windows does. If you already use it, here is an example of wallet for Pirl mining:

{ "name": "2miners PIRL", "email": null, "props": { "ewal": "0x632F4f6bf9F5bDC6EE0f4A069DEa0A87258a4965", "claymore": { "epools_tpl": "POOL:, WALLET: %EWAL%, WORKER: %WORKER_NAME%, PSW: x", "claymore_user_config": "-allcoins exp\n-allpools 0" } }, "fav": 0 }

Copy the code, go to ‘Wallets’ and click on the link at the bottom: “Create wallet from JSON code.”

After you insert the code, Hive OS will create a new wallet — the only thing you need to do is replace the wallet address.
