By default or if in doubt which share difficulty to choose, choose the lower one. We recommend the high share difficulty if you mine with more than 500 GPU's. If you mine using Nicehash you should always choose the high share difficulty. Share difficulty doesn’t affect miner rewards. Read more.
For mining ETHW coin choose algorithm: ETHash

Step 1 - Create a wallet

You could receive payouts in Bitcoin (BTC), Toncoin (TON) or Ethereum PoW (ETHW). Payout fees in BTC and TON are low (less than $0.2 and $0.02 respectively), and payouts in ETHW are also low (less than $0.01). Read our post Get Paid in Bitcoin for Altcoin Mining.

For each of the coins you could use a desktop or mobile wallet or generate an address on a crypto exchange.

Step 2 - Download mining software

Quick start - Download ready to go version of the GPU Miner (archive password - 2miners).

For Nvidia GPU's we recommend T-Rex (Guide - How to use T-Rex) or GMiner (Guide - How to use GMiner).
For AMD GPU's we recommend lolMiner (Guide - How to use lolMiner) or GMiner (Guide - How to use GMiner).

Step 3 - Edit the bat file

Use YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS that you've created on Step 1.
