[ANN] Bminer: a fast Equihash/Ethash miner for CUDA GPUs (9.0.0)


#1

Bminer is a highly optimized cryptocurrency miner that runs on modern NVIDIA GPUs (Maxwell and Pascal, i.e. GPUs that have compute capability 5.0 or above). 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) with 1% of devfee.
Bminer supports mining Ethash-based coins (e.g., Ethereum) with 0.35% of devfee.
Bminer also supports dual mining mode - mining Ethash-based coins (e.g. Ethereum) and Blake14r-based coins (e.g. Decred) / Blake2s-based coins (e.g. Verge) at the same time. Devfee for the dual mining mode is 0.75%, and the second coin (e.g. Decred/Verge) is mined without devfee.

Quickstart

To mine Zcash on nanopool:

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