CryptoDredge v0.21.0 (NVIDIA GPU Miner) is an easy to use and highly optimized GPU miner. Thanks to unique optimization methods, the miner makes full use of the capabilities of modern NVIDIA graphics cards. CryptoDredge also pays great attention to stable power consumption. These advantages, as well as a small commission (Dev Fee – 1%, 2% for MTP), make this software one of the best public miners.
New Chukwa algorithm (Argon2-512)
Added new Chukwa WRKZ algorithm (Argon2-256)
New CryptoNightConceal Algorithm
Add stratum + ssl support for secure pool connections
Add SOCKS5 and HTTP proxy support for TCP and Websocket connections respectively
Several fixes and improvements
NVIDIA Graphics Cards with Specification Version 5.0 or Higher
MTP requires cards with at least 5 GB of memory.
Latest GeForce Driver
2 GB of RAM (4 GB recommended). Some algorithms, such as NeoScrypt, require a virtual memory (swap file) of the same size as the entire memory of video cards.
Windows 7 / 8.1 / 10 (64-bit)
Visual C++ for Visual Studio 2015 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=48145)
Ubuntu 14.04+, Debian 8+ (64-bit)
Libc-ares2 package You can install the libc-ares2 package using the following command through the terminal: apt-get install libc-ares2
CryptoNightFastV2 (Masari and Stellite)
MTP (see paragraph MTP algorithm)
The current version of CryptoDredge is a (portable) console application. Unzip the downloaded archive and edit one of the .bat / .sh files or pass the necessary arguments to the application via the command line.
Example:Code:CryptoDredge -a <ALGO> -o stratum+tcp://<POOL> -u <WALLET_ADDRESS> -p <OPTIONS>
CryptoDredge is not part of the malware. You can try adding miner to antivirus exceptions.
There are many reasons for a rejected ball. Main reasons:
high network latency
aggressive overclocking of video cards
If you use a third-party watchdog, you can disable the built-in option –no-watchdog.
Example:Code:CryptoDredge -a <ALGO> -o stratum+tcp://<POOL> -u <WALLET_ADDRESS> --no-watchdog
Multiple instances after a while
It seems that you are using your own miner restart mechanism (see Watchdog point).
When the built-in Watchdog is on, the miner will send us error reports in case of a crash. You can disable automatic sending of reports using the –no-crashreport parameter. Bug reports help us prioritize and track the most pressing issues.
Error reports will not contain any personal information about you, but they may include:
Operating system version
Video cards with a minimum of 5 GB of memory
There are no special requirements for the processor and RAM, 4 GB should be enough
By Compared to other algorithms, MTP requires the transfer of large volumes data per pool. This can be a problem for limited or slow connections.
Miner must perform additional work every time the pool sends a new “job”, so the average the hash rate will be slightly less.
For MTP commission 2%
Argon2d (NIM) algorithm
If you encounter a lot of “invalid share: invalid pow” errors, set the –hashrate option to calculate the initial complexity.
