Gminer — is a well-known and in-demand cryptocurrency miner in the community for Aeternity, Ethereum, Beam, Grin, ZelCash, BitcoinZ and even Nervos CKB. Its main advantage is the support of multiple algorithms and, consequently, cryptocurrencies, whose network hash rate has recently taken off. We tell you how to properly set up the miner and start working with it. This program for mining cryptocurrencies is suitable for video cards from Nvidia and AMD (GPUs). DevFee is 0.65% for Ethash, 5% for BBC, 5% for Cortex, 3% for Cuckaroom29, 3% for BFC, 2% for all other algorithms.
What’s new in GMiner v2.56?
memory temperature display for Nvidia cards under Windows (if the GPU supports it)
memory temperature display for AMD cards under Windows and Linux (if GPUs support it)
removed cuckatoo31/cuckatoo32 algorithms
Features and benefits GMiner
GMiner was created by a Russian group of specialists in high-performance computing and cryptography. The first version of GMiner was released on September 21, 2018 and was quite warmly received by users. Due to its unique developments and stability, in just six months the miner became a favorite on Equihash algorithms. The miner is focused on NVIDIA and AMD platforms and supports most popular algorithms such as: Ethash, ProgPoW, KAWPOW, Equihash, CuckooCycle. GMiner maintains the leading position in mining coins such as Beam, Grin, Cortex, Bitcoin Gold. In 2020, the miner added support for Ethash, ProgPoW and KAWPOW algorithms with high performance relative to competitors. The development team never rests on its laurels and achieves maximum algorithm performance with minimal power consumption, these are the qualities that distinguish GMiner from its competitors and win the hearts of users.
Watchdog (auto restart of the miner if the GPU fails, loss of connection to the pool, miner crash, watchdog is a process-observer of the state of the main miner systems, which will restart the miner if it crashes or hangs);
Failover pools (auto-connect to failover pool when primary pool is unavailable, support for unlimited number of failover pools, by maintaining backup pools, Miner uses backup pools until until the primary pool is re-connected)
Energy Calculator (shows the power consumption for each GPU, sol/Watt)
SSL connection to the layer (support for secured connections, server certificate validation (optional))
-server – pool address and port, in this case the pool is eth.2miners.com, port 2020
-user – ethash wallet and worker name, in this case the wallet is 0x6334F8d82C8CCBB7D177Fc3aA679638f7Fb0e84a , worker1
For Ethash and Etshash algorithms there are 2 stratum protocol options (proxy and stratum), to explicitly specify the protocol, use the parameter “-proto”, for example, to use the Nicehash pool, type in the command line:
a list of available GPUs can be seen by calling the following command:
To set the temperature limits for GPU0, GPU2 and GPU4, at which the mining on this device will be suspended until it cools down. where 80 is the temperature limit for GPU0, 70 is the temperature limit for GPU2, 65 is the temperature limit for GPU4.
