This is a how to guide for mining Zcash on a Mac. Here are the technical specifications for the Mac I used for mining:
  • 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 Processor
  • 16 GB 1600 Mhz DDR3 Memory
  • AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2 GB Video Card
  • MacOS Sierra 10.12.4
The first step is installing a Zcash blockchain wallet on your Mac. For this, I installed Jaxx, which requires OS X 10.9 or later. When setting up Jaxx, be sure to safely write down your Backup Phrase and keep it in a safe location. Once your Jaxx wallet has been setup, make a note of your ZEC wallet address.
Here's how to mine Zcash on your Mac computer.
