CryptoTab Farm Terminology:

Miner or worker — a Windows/macOS powered computer or laptop that has CryptoTab Farm mining software installed on it.

Dashboard — a management and monitoring tool. Here you add miners, set the farm’s work hours, control the performance and condition of miners.

Slot — an empty slot for adding new miners to your farm. One miner per slot.

What is hash rate?

Hash rate is the speed at which a computer performs cryptographic calculations. The more hash rate you have - the faster you mine bitcoins. Hash rate is measured in hashes per second - h/s.

Farm setup

How do I set up a farm? Dashboard functionality.

After you have added all computers, set up the farm using the dashboard tools:

For more information on how to install the miner, check out the guide.

Why do I need mining groups?

Mining groups help to combine devices for centralized management and for getting the relevant statistics.

Create any number of mining groups, give them names, and move miners between them for maximum efficiency and convenience.

For example:

Group 1 - “Home”: computers which my family uses;

Group 2 - “Office”: computers at work, mine, and colleagues;

Group 3 - “Servers”: a group of machines working around the clock and purchased specifically for mining.

* Initially, all devices are located in the Default group. All your miners will be there if you haven't created any mining groups yet. Unlike other mining groups, the Default group cannot be deleted.

Why do I need a Schedule?

The CryptoTab algorithm uses the idle power of the computer. Mining will be more efficient when the device is not occupied, or when processes with low resource consumption are running on it.

Knowing the load schedule of computers connected to the farm, you can create a mining schedule — adjust the speed for each day of the week and each hour. There are various speed modes available in the miner for your convenience — from 5% to 100% with a 5% step. Different speeds correspond to different colors in the scheduler. Usually, during each hour there could be only one certain speed, but if your app and miner are located in different time zones, then you may have different speeds even within one hour. In such a case, this hour in your scheduler will be highlighted not in one but in two colors.

You can set up the schedule for each device separately, or for the entire mining group. In both cases, you can adjust the settings by clicking on the menu (three dots) to the right of the device or group name.

Manual mining speed adjustment

Using the slider (both in the app and in the miner), you can manually adjust the CPU load by choosing how many CPU threads will be involved in mining.

You can as well set the mining speed in the Schedule where the load level is set as a percentage from 5 to 100%. Setting your miners more accurately according to the computers’ workloads will lead you to higher income.

What is the time zone setting for?

If the CT Farm app and your miners are located in different time zones, set the optimal schedule for them depending on their location and local time.

In the CryptoTab Farm app, you can select convenient time zones with just one click.

What is the “Remote Control” feature for?

The Remote control feature is needed to control the work of the miner from the Dashboard. You can set up this feature in the CryptoTab Farm miner program installed on your computer.

* If the owner of the device doesn’t allow remote control, the functionality in the Dashboard will be limited. You can only monitor this computer: view statistics, track the current mining speed and core temperature, receive notifications.

Can I delete a mining group?

Yes, you can, but only if there are no miners in it. Move them to another group first. Please note that this action cannot be undone.

What are CPU threads?

Each processor can concurrently perform several operations, which is called multithreading. A modern CPU can have from 2 to 30+ cores.

A core is a hardware processor unit that can split its performance into multiple threads (virtual cores), and thus carry out multiple coherent tasks at the same time.

So, the more cores (threads) you have, the faster your CPU works, the higher the mining speed is, and the more BTC you earn.

Why do I see the temperature of only 4 cores?

We choose to monitor the 4 most heavily loaded processor cores available on the computer. Usually, 4 cores are enough to alert you of system congestion.

What are HugePages?

Computer memory is divided into page blocks, and in most operating systems pages larger than 4 KB are called HugePages.

HugePages, also known as LargePages (on Windows) and SuperPages (on macOS), are an essential element for mining algorithms on the main processor of a computer. When using them, the hashrate (mining speed) increases by 20-30%.

Dashboard setup

What is the dashboard refresh rate needed for?

To help slow phones work with the dashboard. Each miner sends its status update to the mobile app dashboard every few seconds. The more miners you have - the more status info and phone load they produce.

When there are many miner notifications - your phone might work slow. Our tests show that almost any phone handles it well even if you have more than 100 miners in the farm. Nevertheless, we want our product to be carried on flawlessly on any device - so we added dashboard refresh rate setting in the app.

If your phone continues to work slowly even after the dashboard refresh rate decreased - please, write your phone model and Android version to our support. Your feedback helps us make the app better.

How can we manage dashboard refresh rate, and where to find it?

The refresh rate can be from 0 seconds to 10 seconds inclusive. An example: you pick 5 seconds refresh rate. Miner updates are now sent to the dashboard every 5 seconds. If you choose 0 in the refresh rate slider - your dashboard will be updated with all incoming states.

  1. Tap settings icon at the top-right corner of the dashboard main screen.
  2. At the opened settings screen, tap slider to set up the desired refresh rate.

What is a dashboard simple mode, and how to turn it on?

The default CryptoTab Farm app dashboard mode provides a lot of information about every miner. This amount of information may be excessive for someone or it may use too much dashboard space. That’s why we made a dashboard simple mode that displays only main miner stats. However, you can still see the detailed stats for every needed miner in that mode.

To enable the simple mode:

  1. Tap settings icon at the top-right corner of the dashboard main screen.
  2. At the opened settings screen, turn simple mode switch on.

When in simple mode tap “>” at the right side of the miner card to see all miner details.

What is the dark dashboard theme, and how to enable it?

A dark theme allows you to change the dashboard visual profile from light to dark colours.

Pros:

  • Looks good (to some users)
  • Saves phone’s battery (for oled screens)
  • Your eyes become less tired in low light
  • The app looks different. You can switch to the dark theme when the light theme becomes too familiar.

Cons:

  • Someone won’t like it. That’s why you can turn it off!

How to enable the dark theme:

  1. Go to the menu (the last button at the bottom button list)
  2. Select the dark theme switch in the middle of the screen

That’s also how you can disable the dark theme. Default light appearance is applied when you turn off the dark theme.

Income forecast and mining stats

Why do I need statistics?

By analyzing mining results, you can adjust the settings and optimize the work of your farm to increase your income.

You can see statistics both for an individual computer and for the entire mining group by selecting the desired period: day or month.

How to check mining statistics?

  1. To view farm statistics, click the statistics icon at the bottom of the app (second from the left);
  2. By default, statistics are displayed for all groups. You can select one of the groups from the drop-down list in the upper right corner;
  3. Choose the period: month or day.

An alternative way to check the statistics of a device or group: click on the menu (three dots) to the right of the name.

How to predict an income?

You can predict your potential CryptoTab Farm income with the Income Calculator.

  1. Go to the bottom part of the statistics section;
  2. The calculator is located under the graphs with statistics and the BTC rate;
  3. Select the average hashrate, the number of active hours per day, and the days of work.

How do I calculate my farm's real income?

If you have combined devices into groups and configured the schedule correctly, you will always receive up-to-date information about mining in each of the groups and will be able to form an objective profit forecast.

What does my income depend on?

  1. The more powerful the configuration of the computer, the bigger the amount of free resources is, and the higher the mining speed is.
  2. The more miners are connected, the higher the hashrate of the farm is.
  3. A well-planned miners’ schedule contributes to the efficient use of their resources and an increase in profit.
