Cloud Mining Digital Currency

edited June 2014 in Help
Hello, I am in need of help deployng my first cloud miner. I am new to Linux but thats what the code is for. Ubuntu 14.
I am trying to deploy a code into Linux but no copy and paste when i press crtl+shift+v

I see the terminal asks for a password which nothing types when i try to type the root pw or my acc pw. The code is:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install -y build-essential m4 libssl-dev libdb++-dev libboost-all-dev libminiupnpc-dev git automake libcurl4-openssl-dev

git clone

cd darkcoin-cpuminer-1.2c

chmod a+x




apt-get install screen


./minerd -a X11 -o stratum+tcp:// -u username.worker -p password

I found the guide here. what am i missing? I cant enter or paste into the terminal of Ubuntu.
thanks in advance


  • It's honestly not worth mining on a CPU only VPS. You'd need a VPS with a dedicated GPU to mine enough to make it worth it, which is more expensive than the money you'd make back.

    Download putty, it's an SSH client and allows you to paste by right clicking
  • @devicenull could you please clarify if mining allowed on vultr servers ?
