Nanominer is a versatile cryptocurrency mining tool based on Ethash, Ubqhash, Cuckoo Cycle (Сortex coin), RandomX (Monero), KawPow (Ravencoin) and RandomHash (PascalCoin) algorithms. The latest version of nanominer was built to work with all cryptocurrencies based on these algorithms, including Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, QuarkChain, Ubiq, Monero, Pascal, Cortex, Ravencoin and many more.
This version of nanominer runs on Windows or Linux with AMD or Nvidia graphics cards (with the exception of the RandomX and RandomHash2 algorithms, which are only supported on the processor). The Cuckaroo30 algorithm is only supported on 16GB AMD Radeon RX 570 GPUs. The Ravencoin KawPow algorithm is only supported on AMD GPUs, and Nvidia support will follow.
To work with Nvidia GPUs, the nanomancer needs an Nvidia driver 410.48 or later on Linux or 411.31 or later on Windows.
To start Ethereum mining using nanominer, just enter your wallet into the configuration file.
Testing with nanominer demonstrated high performance when working with Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, QuarkChain, Ubiq, Monero, Pascal, Cortex and other currencies. As a result of the study, it was found that nanominer works on a par with, and sometimes better. Regardless, nanominer stands out for its high stability and easy setup.
Payment for using nanominer is carried out in the form of a commission from mining to its wallets once in 2 hours of work. Commission:
1% of the total mining time for Ethash and Ubqhash algorithms (72 seconds in 2 hours);
2% for KawPow on the GPU (144 seconds in 2 hours);
2% for RandomX on the processor (144 seconds in 2 hours);
5% for RandomHash2 on the processor (180 seconds every hour).
5% for the Cuckaroo30 algorithm (360 seconds in 2 hours);
What’s new in v1.9.6?
XMR mining: Fixed termination of the miner if there are no tasks for 10 minutes.
When launched, nanominer reads the installation file config.ini from the current directory of the program. To assign a specific name to a configuration file, it must be written as the first argument on the command line. For instance:
When launched with the -d command-line option (for example, nanominer.exe -d), the miner displays a list of detected devices, including their PCI addresses and memory size. To use this feature on Windows, the program must be launched from the command line (cmd).
nanominer does not require specifying pools in the configuration file. If a pool (or list of pools) is not specified, nanominer will automatically use pools on nanopool.org that correspond to the selected cryptocurrency (with the exception of coins not specified in Nanopool). QuarkChain public full nodes (fullnode.quarkchain.io and fullnode2.quarkchain.io), which are supported by QuarkChain developers, are used by default for QuarkChain.
When nanominer starts up, it displays basic information about the work in the console log, including the current version of the program, the name of the installation, the number and type of installed video cards, and the current settings of the program.
For mining Pascal in solo mode, please provide the ip and port of the Pascal full node Wallet software. The wallet number in the config does not matter in this case. The payload of the block will be the “Miner Name” set in the full Pascal node wallet, followed by the nanominer version. Sample file for individual Pascal mining using local wallet software:
