Frequently Asked Questions
How does Idle Gold fund payouts?
Idle Gold mines gold using a cryptocurrency mining program to fund your gold payouts. It uses the power of your GPU to solve proof-of-work tasks that validate transactions on cryptocurrency networks, allowing people to trade securely.
We charge a payout fee and pass OSRS gold to you when you request a payout. Your mining luck over the day and the market value of mining over the year can fluctuate, which you can monitor in the profit graph.
Is Idle Gold safe to install?
We verify all packages released above to make sure that our mining software matches the versions used by tens of thousands of cryptocurrency hobbyists and professionals worldwide.
Our miner application only connects to Idle Gold servers and does not access outside servers. In the remote event that our servers become compromised, attackers would not have the capability to control your computer or access your files.
My anti-virus program flags Idle Gold as suspicious!
Because many actual viruses include mining programs to mine cryptocurrencies against the user’s will, many anti-virus programs simply flag all mining software, regardless if they are used for legitimate purposes and intended by the user.
If your anti-virus program flags Idle Gold as a “Miner”, “CoinMiner”, or “Gen/Generic” and blocks it from running, you can add the installation folder
C:\Program Files\Idle.Gold as an exception/exclusion in your anti-virus’ UI dashboard.
I've mined before and don't need the Idle Gold app. Just give me the pool info.

How do I get my gold payout?
After requesting a payout in the Idle Gold miner application, a customer support chat launches in your web browser to arrange an OSRS trade location, world, and time.
Payouts are delivered within 24 hours, but depending on our queue size, most are fulfilled in only a few minutes.
If you do not accept your payout within 48 hours, do not worry! Your balance is not deducted until your payout is confirmed, and you may request a payout at a later time.
Can I run Idle Gold while playing Old School RS (or other video games)?
Because mining uses your GPU’s full power, you may experience framerate drops, lag, or long loading times when simultaneously mining and playing most video games. You can configure Idle Gold to pause mining while your computer is in use and continue when it is idle for a few minutes.
Fortunately, because Old School RS uses your CPU instead of GPU for graphics, you will likely have no loss of performance while mining in the background. You can mine both rune and (idle) gold at the same time!
If you use RuneLite, disabling the GPU plugin might improve performance.
How can I maximize profits with Idle Gold?
While Idle Gold’s hourly gold rates might not be competitive compared to top money-making techniques like bossing, its strength is in slow-but-steady 24-hour mining. Your computer can work while you sleep, giving you an extra income source for leveling expensive skills or enjoying faster training methods. Gradual mining for weeks while your computer is idle will be more effective than “burst-mining” for a few hours and giving up.
Expert users may choose to tune the performance of their GPUs (i.e. underclock GPU, overclock VRAM, undervolt or power limit, adjusting target temperatures and fan speeds, etc). Discuss best tuning parameters for your GPU in the official Idle Gold communities.
