Crypto Mining on the Raspberry Pi


Installing Ubuntu on the Raspberry Pi is a very straightforward process, you can find detailed documentation on the Ubuntu website:

How to install Ubuntu Server on your Raspberry Pi | Ubuntu

In this tutorial, we walk you through the process of installing Ubuntu Server on a Raspberry Pi, connecting it to the…


After the installation and boot of the Raspberry Pi, we can log in with SSH and should be presented with the beautiful and familiar Ubuntu server start screen:

Welcome to Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS (GNU/Linux 5.4.0-1042-raspi aarch64)* Documentation:  https://help.ubuntu.com
* Management: https://landscape.canonical.com
* Support: https://ubuntu.com/advantageSystem information as of Mon Dec 6 13:23:09 UTC 2021System load: 1.2 Temperature: 45.1 C
Usage of /: 13.8% of 13.93GB Processes: 137
Memory usage: 28% Users logged in: 0
Swap usage: 0% IPv4 address for eth0: xxxxxxxxx

A small detail, we can even see the temperature of the Raspberry Pi, mine seems to be at 45 degrees Celcius just after boot.

Setup Duino-Coin

To setup Duino-Coin all that is needed is to follow these commands, we start by installing all the dependencies:

# Update package repositories and install dependencies$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install python3 python3-pip git python3-pil python3-pil.imagetk -y

Then we can clone the Duino-Coin repository:

# Clone Duino-Coin repository
$ git clone https://github.com/revoxhere/duino-coin # Install Python dependencies for Duino-Coin
$ cd duino-coin
$ python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt

We also need to generate a wallet where our mining profits are going to be added. Duino-Coin has a GUI Wallet, CLI Wallet, and Web Wallet.

I chose the Web Wallet because it has additional features, like viewing your miner stats and calculating estimated profits.

Just go to https://wallet.duinocoin.com/register to register for a new wallet:

Mining Duino-Coin

To run the miner, we need to execute the following command:

# Run Miner (inside duino-coin directory)
$ python3 PC_Miner.pyDuino-Coin basic configuration tool
Edit Duino-Coin PC Miner 2.75/Miner_config.cfg file later if you want to change it.
Don't have an Duino-Coin account yet? Use Wallet to register on server.Enter your Duino-Coin username: xxxxxxxxxx
Set mining intensity (1-100)% (recommended: 95): 95
Set mining threads (recommended for your system: 4): 4
1 - Low difficulty (for Raspberry Pis, older computers)
2 - Medium difficulty (for typical computers)
3 - Network difficulty (for powerful computers)
Select mining difficulty you want to use (1-3): 1
Do you want to add an identifier (name) to this rig? (y/N): y
Enter desired rig name: RPI3
Set developer donation level (0-5) (recommended: 1), this will not reduce your earnings: 1

On the first run, the script will ask for the following configuration:

  • Wallet username (that you created in the previous step)
  • Mining intensity, normally 95% but if not using the Pi for something else, you can go up to 100%
  • Mining threads, that depends on your Pi hardware, mine has 4 cores, so I chose 4 threads
  • Mining difficulty, for the Pi a low setting is recommended
  • Whether or not you want to add a rig name, I suggest using a name so you can easily track your stats
  • Developer donation, you can choose to support or not

Then the miner will start its work.

And that is all that is needed to mine Duino-Coin on the Raspberry Pi.


You can go to https://wallet.duinocoin.com/ to check your miner stats:

GUI Wallet shows my stats after a couple of hours

As you can see, after a couple of hours the results are not a million dollars, but an estimate of $0.003 daily.

But keep in mind that this is an old Raspberry Pi 3, new models like the 4b can produce up to 1.75 MH/s, compared to mine ridiculously low 252.35 KH/s.

I might not get rich but considering that it took me less than 5 minutes to set up the Raspberry Pi and started mining, and had an extra unused Pi then it is a nice, but slow-growing side income with zero effort.

Maybe in a year a can afford a nice coffee…
