Bminer

14.1.0 (Current)

  • Improve performance of AE / Grin on Turing cards.
  • Improve performance of AE / Grin on lower-end CPUs and Windows platforms.
  • Support mining beam on leafpool and nicehash.
  • Fix the regression where /api/v1/devices is occasionally unresponsive.

Bminer: When Crypto-mining Made Fast

Bminer is a highly optimized cryptocurrency miner that runs on modern AMD / NVIDIA GPUs. Bminer is one of the fastest publicly available miners today — we use various techniques including tiling and pipelining to realize the full potentials of the hardware.

Bminer also comes with REST APIs to facilitate production deployments (e.g., mining farms).

  • Bminer supports mining Equihash-based coins (e.g., Zcash, BitcoinGold, BitcoinZ) with 2% of devfee.
  • Bminer supports mining Ethash-based coins (e.g., Ethereum) with 0.65% of devfee. It is also possible to dual mine Ethash and Blake14r-based / Blake2s-based coins, where the devfee is 1.3%.
  • Bminer supports mining Bytom (BTM) with 2% of devfee.
  • Bminer supports mining Grin (GRIN) with 1% of devfee.

Quickstart

To mine Zcash on nanopool:

  • DDownload and extract Bminer into a folder (e.g. C:\bminer or /home/bminer)
  • On Windows:
    • Edit mine.bat and change the address to the desired Zcash address that Bminer mines towards.
    • Open command line prompt and run mine.bat.
  • On Linux:
    • Edit mine.sh and change the address to the desired Zcash address that Bminer mines towards.
    • Run mine.sh.
