Mining Ursula (URSA) - a new coin based on the HeavyHash algorithm

A few days ago, a new coin called Ursula (URSA) was announced and launched, just yesterday, 02/29/2024, the coin was listed on the Xeggex cryptocurrency exchange and it began to be traded there. At the moment, the complexity of the network is still not very high and the profitability of mining on video cards is excellent. Of course, it is not yet known how long this will last, and how quickly miners will rush to this coin and raise the difficulty. By the way, do not confuse the HeavyHash algorithm (which is used to mine URSA) and KHeavyHash which is used by Kaspa (KAS). Ursula coin (URSA) is not mined on ASICs for Kaspa.

Basic information about the coin and tokenomics:

Setting up mining for Windows

Go to the Github repository of the Wildrig-multi miner in the releases section and download the latest version of the miner for Windows. (or you can follow this link)


Unpack the miner to a suitable folder on your disk and edit any .bat file, for example in our case start.bat, or create a new one.


Replace everything contained inside with the following content (using the mining4people pool as an example, you can use any other pool from the list above):

wildrig.exe --print-full --algo heavyhash --opencl-threads auto --opencl-launch auto --url stratum+tcp:// --user YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS

Replace the text YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS with the address of your Ursula wallet from the Xeggex exchange website and save the changes to a file.

This is what the final version of the .bat file looks like in my case:

Congratulations, you can launch the batch file and enjoy the mining process. To calculate profitability, you can use the calculator.

Setting up mining for HiveOs.

We create a new custom wallet, in the Coin field we write the name of our new coin, for example URSULA, in the Address field we write your wallet address for deposits from the Xeggex exchange. We come up with and write off the name of the wallet, for example URSULA Xeggex in my case and enter it in the Name field, then click on Create.

Now go to Flight Sheets and set up a new flight sheet. In the Coin field, select the newly created URSULA coin, in the Wallet field - the created URSULA Xeggex wallet, in the Pool field, select Configure miner, in the Name field, name the flight sheet as you like. In the Miner field, select SRBMiner-MULTI and click the Configure button above this field.

In the form that appears, in the Hash algorithm field, select the value heavyhash, enter %WAL% in the Wallet, and Worker Name - %WORKER_NAME%. Server pool:port, enter the address of the pool you have selected, in our case it is, then click Apply changes and then Create flight sheet.

Now everything is ready, all that remains is to run this flight sheet and the mining process starts.
