How-to Mine Intense Coin on Windows
UPDATE: Since august 2018 intensecoin is rebranded to Lethean. You can find the new website here: https://lethean.io/. I will post a new how-to for the Lethean setup soon!
INTENSE (ITNS) is the fuel and operating currency of a peer-to-peer (P2P) decentralized VPN, according to their website. What this means is that you can use this VPN technology service backed by the blockchain. This makes paying for the VPN and using the VPN anonymously.
This coin is based on the CryptoNote technology and uses the exclusive Cryptonight algorithm. This makes it perfect for mining on a CPU. Since we all have CPU’s, everyone can mine Intense coin.
First step is to download the wallet software, click this link to get it from github. Once download extract the ZIP file and simply click the Intensecoin.exe file. This will start up the wallet and begins the sync process. The first time this could take a while, because it needs to sync with the blockchain. The good thing is that you don’t need to wait for the sync to finish, and can go straight to the mining proces.
From that moment you are mining Intense coin. It’s that simple. You can tweak some settings in the wallet if you like. For example how many CPU cores the miner can use. Best setting would be n-1. So if you have 4 cores, set it on 3. If you’re pc is getting really slow decrease it with 1 at the time.
There is also a pool settings. The default pool is set when the wallet is installed and is intensecoin.com/pool. But you can change the pool if you like on the mining tab. This is located on the bottem
Here is a list of some other pools
There are also wallets and miners for MacOS and Linux, which have the same setup.
