The best mining software in 2018

The best mining software in 2018

Discover the best programs to start mining Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies today


If you've decided to take the plunge and have bought your own Bitcoin (BTC) mining hardware or mining rig, your next step is to connect to a mining 'pool'. This allows you to share your machine's resources over the internet and receive a portion of the mining profits in return.
There are a number of programs available to help manage your crypto-mining. In this guide, we've explored five of the most popular. If you're an experienced computer user, you may prefer to install the free operating system Linux and make use of one of the text-only programs such as CGminer.
If you prefer to keep things simple and are sticking with Windows 10, mining clients with a GUI such as MultiMiner may suit you better.
Before getting started, if you want to be sure a mining program will work with your particular device or operating system, the Bitcoin Wiki has a very helpful list.

How difficult would it be to make a GUI Miner for Garlicoin

I have no coding experience, but I am manging alright on cgminer, but seeing how many people are having issues how hard would it be for someone to make a GUI miner. That was how I got into mining bitcoin, litecoin and dogecoin (GUIMiner and GUIMiner Scrypt) and I would have quit if I didnt have access to that. For anyone who doesn't know what im talking about: https://a.fsdn.com/con/app/proj/guiminerscrypt/screenshots/scrsh2.png/1

To help you get started on bitcoins...

Sup fellow reddit members!
Today I'm here to give you guys a long introduction about bitcoins.
Intro to bitcoins:
Bitcoins are the first decentralized digital currency.
Bitcoins are basically digital coins that you can send through the internet.
Some advantages of bitcoins:
  1. It can be transfered through other people without a bank having involved in the transaction.
  2. The transaction fees are much lower.
  3. You can use them in any and every country.
  4. Your account (explained later) can never be frozen.
  5. No limits!
How it works:
There are several online bitcoin currency exchange where you can exchange bitcoins for money and vice versa.
Bitcoins are kept in a digital wallet on your computemobile device. coinbase.com is one of the most trustworthy online bitcoin wallet, IMO.
Sending bitcoins is as simple as sending an email, and you can purchase ANYTHING with bitcoins as long as they accept the currency.
The bitcoin software is completely open-sourced, so anyone can review the code.
Bitcoins are easy + free to setup, and there are no chargebacks!
How to obtain bitcoins:
There are two ways to obtain bitcoins:
  1. Buying them from exchanges/privately. The one that I trust the most is http://www.bitstamp.net.
  2. Mining them using applications. Miners solve math problems/bitcoin algorithms (which takes computing power) and are rewarded bitcoins for doing that. This is the one that I'm going to focus on, as it is pretty hard to grasp.
Mining bitcoins:
Using special software application, you are able to mine bitcoins. Mining means to solve math problems/bitcoin algorithms using your computing power.
Blocks are a chunk of 25 bitcoins, and if you solve one math problem you automatically get a block.
The speed of mining bitcoins is measured in Hashes/Second (KH/s, MH/s, GH/s, TH/s etc.)
The difficulty of the problems gradually increases as more bitcoins are found. Now, it is almost impossible to find bitcoin blocks by yourself, as more than 10 million bitcoins have been mined.
Using special hardware (ASIC, Application-Specific Integrated Circuit chips) that specifically is aimed to mine bitcoins increases your mining speed by a lot. You can buy these hardware anywhere online/offline. amazon.com has many ASIC hardware on sale.
But even ASIC mining can still take a long time to find a block by yourself. That's how the pooled mining began.
Pooled mining basically combines the work of many miners toward a common goal. Pool of miners find the solution of the math problems faster than individuals, and they share the block equally based on each miner's hash rate.
There are many pools right now that are pretty trustworthy, but that one that I use is triple mining: http://evilbeans124.triplemining.com
Mining bitcoins on a Mac:
This part is only dedicated on mining bitcoins for Mac users. If you're a PC user or a Linux/Ubuntu user, skip this.
  1. Go to asteroidapp.com and download the latest version of Asteroid
  2. Open Asteroid
  3. Under Mining Pool, select TripleMining
  4. Hide the application, go to whatever browser you use, and go to http://evilbeans124.triplemining.com
  5. Register for an account
  6. Under the workers tab, add a new worker (on the right side)
  7. Go back to Asteroid, and fill in your worker username + password.
  8. Start mining
  9. You're done
Mining bitcoins on a PC:
This part is only dedicated on mining bitcoins for PC users. If you're a Mac user, view above. If you're a Linux/Ubuntu user, skip this.
  1. Go to https://bitcointalk.org/?topic=3878.0 and download the latest version of GUI miner
  2. Open GUI miner
  3. Select Triplemining for the server
  4. Hide the application, go to whatever browser you use, and go to http://evilbeans124.triplemining.com
  5. Register for an account
  6. Under the workers tab, add a new worker (on the right side)
  7. Go back to GUI miner, enter in your worker username/password
  8. If you have any hardware, then select them in the device tab. If not, skip this step
  9. Start mining
  10. You're done
Mining bitcoins on a Ubuntu/Linux:
This part is only dedicated on mining bitcoins for Linux/Ubuntu users. If you're a Mac or PC user, view above.
Unfortunately, I have no experience in how to install any miner on Linux. The following website does however, so just follow it
http://www.distrogeeks.com/install-cgminer-3-7-2-ubuntu/
The end
I think I covered most of the points on bitcoins. However, if there is any mistakes/stuff that I should add, please put a comment below or PM me! It will be greatly valued!
I spent sometime doing this, so some donation will be very appreciated. My bitcoin address is on my signature.

GUI Miner

I can't get CGMiner to work (you can give me advice on this) so i've decided to use GUI Miner. The thing is that GUI Miner seems to only work for bitcoin mining. How do I configure it to mine for dogecoin?
submitted by Starcop to dogemining [link] [comments]

[modpost] Possible wiki page, something I call "All about miners," covering things from basic terminology to miner config files and overclocking.

What is a miner?
A miner is a computer set up to solve cryptographic hashes in the litecoin network. Once a clump of these hashes, or a block, is mined, litecoins pop out! It's like opening a box of chocolates, except you know what you're gonna get :) Miners also handle transaction confirmations, making sure no single coin is double-spent.
Setting up your computer to be a miner
What kind of computer do I need?
Optimally, you'd have a good power supply and a couple decent Radeon/ATI/AMD graphics cards. Because of litecoin's hash algorithm, the gap between mining with graphics cards and processors is less than with most other cryptocurrencies, meaning that mining with some desktop processors may be worth it after electricity costs. Note that mining with laptops is not recommended because of the heat generated by mining, and mining with NVIDIA graphics cards may not be worth the cost.
How do I know if litecoin mining will be profitable for me?
First, check how fast you'll be mining with your hardware, how many litecoins you'll mine in a day, and how much litecoins are worth. Now, multiply the number of litecoins per day by their worth. Then, find out the power draw of your hardware, and calculate energy cost. Then finish by subtract energy cost from your daily earnings. If your number is positive, you're making that much money per day. If negative, you're losing money.
Keep in mind that the worth of litecoins goes up/down, and you have to earn the cost of your hardware before you churn a profit. Mining difficulty also goes up/down, depending on how many people are mining how fast in relation to how many litecoins are supposed to be generated how fast. See the economics(coming soon) post for more info.
Okay, I did all that. How do I start?
All you have to do is download a program and change some settings (later in the guide), and you're ready to go. If you're comfortable with configurations and the command line, Reaper and cgminer are your best friends. Otherwise, GUIMiner-scrypt is right for you. If you want to mine on your processor, download the "batteries included" miner via this link and setup should be relatively self-explanatory.
Do I mine alone?
Due to the difficulty of mining, we recommend that you mine with a pool where multiple people mine together. Visit your pool's about or help page for proper miner settings, which we're about to get to in-depth!
Under the hood
Configuring your miner (aka the hard part)
Before we get started, you should become familiar with these terms:
None of those will have any affect on how fast you mine. The settings that we'll be focusing on are:
If you're using GUIMiner-scrypt, there are default settings for different cards (lower right dropdown). I'm mining on a 7870. Here is what it looks like for me. You can follow along with the rest of this guide to optimize your settings. GUIMiner-scrypt is just a GUI to cgminer and reaper anyways.
If you are using a command-line miner, like reaper and cgminer, I recommend you download and isntall Notepad++ or SublimeText if on Linux.
Reaper is currently considered to be the best tool for mining. After you unzip your downloaded file, in the folder you'll find reaper.conf. It should look something like this:
kernel reaper.cl save_binaries yes enable_graceful_shutdown no long_polling yes platform 0 device 0 #mine bitcoin mine litecoin #mine solidcoin 
This will make it mine litecoin on your first graphics card and reference litecoin.conf, which for me looks like
host us-pool.give-me-ltc.com port 8080 user poolusername.1 pass anything protocol litecoin worksize 256 vectors 1 aggression 18 threads_per_gpu 1 sharethreads 32 lookup_gap 2 gpu_thread_concurrency 15380 
As you see, my thread concurrency is slightly different from the default of GUIMiner-scrypt. I found that this concurrency gives me the best hashrate!
NOTE: I do not use cgminer to mine litecoin. If you plan on using cgminer, which offers more hardware-controlling settings, in the cgminer folder you will want to create a text file. Then, open that text file w/ Notepad++ or SublimeText, then Save As > cgminer.con > file type > all. This will save the file with the proper name and as the proper type. Note that cgminer does not support high concurrencies. For me, cgminer.conf would look something like:
{ "pools" : [ { "url" : "XXX", "user" : "XXX", "pass" : "XXX" } ], "auto-fan" : true, "gpu-engine" : "920", "gpu-fan" : "0-100", "gpu-memclock" : "1375", "gpu-powertune" : "20", "gpu-vddc" : "1.219", "temp-cutoff" : "85", "temp-overheat" : "80", "temp-target" : "75", "temp-hysteresis" : "3", "kernel" : "scrypt", "gputhreads" : "1", "thread_concurrency": "8192", "worksize": "256", "intensity" : "dynamic", "vectors" : "1" } 
You saw some settings similar to what we saw in Reaper's litecoin.conf. The other settings have to do with my card's clocks, voltage, and fan. This is covered in the overclocking section right below!
Overclocking (aka the risky part)
Okay, first off I'm not responsible if you cause damage to your parts. Please research safe overclock settings for your card. Second, don't be afraid. Modern hardware has many safety features in place that help prevent mayhem like me...lol jk this isn't a car insurance add. For your better understanding, become familiar with these terms:
No one setting controls how effectively you mine; what matters most when it comes to clocks is the ratio between your core/memory clocks. Generally, a ratio of 0.7 or below is best. You will need to experiment. If you're using cgminer, you can control card settings from the conf file. However, if you aren't, I recommend using MSI Afterburner as your overclocking tool. You will need to unlock some settings. Using my cgminer settings, MSI Afterburner looks like this. I have found these settings to be the most stable while bringing me a high hashrate.
Other people's optimum settings
You can check the sidebar for the hardware comparison chart, but it is rarely updated and has huge sways in results. It is a good starting place. The mods of this subreddit will be putting together an updated, more accurate list in the near future.

Issues with the Avalon Nano GUI

I recently just bought a Avalon nano usb bitcoin miner. I have tried using it but with no success. I first tried CGMiner but none of the avalon commands would work with my miner. I then looked to the manufacturer provider gui here. The issue with this program is that it will not start. I open it and in the processes tab of task manager, I see that it is running but nothing is happening. Could someone please help me with this? Thanks.

PoolAxe GUI for Crypto Mining

The goal of this project is to become the easiest way to mine cryptocurrency at home. Instead of learning how to use CGminer, SGminer, BFGminer etc, PoolAxe will do all of the hard work for you. All you need to do is point PoolAxe to the mining software that you are using, and then configure whatever settings you want on the GUI. This means no more editing scripts every time that you want to change a settings on your miners. Switching coins is even easier now with the built-in pre-configured pools (you just need to specify workername and password, no stratum URL required! My Philosophy is that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies must remain well-distributed in order to avoid the issues that have plagued traditional/legacy currency such as the US dollar. What better way to spread out the network and better secure it than by getting new people (maybe even without significant tech knowledge) into mining? If you support the goals of this project, let me know. You can donate and support this project by choosing what feature you want added!

[Weekly Spotlight] This week's updates, rig pics, and misc links!

Welcome to the first ever Weekly spotlight!

Hello fellow miners! We're opening up a segment we call the Weekly Spotlight, where we pool together some key topics. All of our sources will be linked :)
Because this is the first spotlight segment, we'll go over more than what's been happening in the past week. We'll be covering things since the beginning of time. Let's get started.

New wiki entries!

Our wiki is linked in the sidebar, and is under constant development. We've got 6 pages so far, so I'll go ahead and just Copy + Paste the Table of Contents (pages and sub-pages).
(1) INDEX
(2) BUILD-A-RIG
(3) GETTING YOUR MINER UP AND RUNNING
CGMINER (IN-DEPTH)
OVERCLOCKING (IN-DEPTH)
(4) ALL ABOUT POOLS
As always, if you have any suggestions, or want to contribute, message the mods!

We have a new tagging system!

For the mods!
  • [MOD POST] Greenifies title text. Used for general announcements.
  • [NEW RULE] Orangifies title text. Used for announcing a new rule.
  • [Weekly Spotlight] Yellowifies title text. Used to draw attention to the spotlight!
For everyone!
  • [Guide] Bright-purpleifies title text. Used for bringing attention to your guide.
  • [Pool Launched] Tuquoises title text. Used to promote your pool.
Keep in mind that (to my knowledge) it's only possible to tag posts via targetting the href, so it's best that you tag a self post. If you need to link to your guide, do so from there.

We have an IRC channel!

You can see it towards the bottom of the sidebar.
Gathering from the times I've been in the room, it's pretty active. Chilling and live Q&A. Come pop in sometime!

Difficulty up from ~90 to ~480 since the creation of this sub!

Sorry guys.
But hey, there's a bright side! Litecoin's value has rocketed to 6x the amount, so your profitability in $$$ should be slightly higher than before. Also, according to litecoinpool.org, the next difficulty adjustment should bring difficulty down about 80 points. According to dustcoin.com, litecoin mining is at 130% profitability compared to bitcoin mining.

Now for entertainment, rig pics!

We have a couple...interesting...cooling solutions.
  • Posted by ImplyingImplicati0ns. A rig cooling solution posted on the IRC! [link]
  • Posted by 1930197. It's called an in-line duct fan. [link]
We have one milk crate pic.

confused... i have a blockchain wallet, i joined eclipse pool, i downloaded and installed easy miner. how do i get them all linked to each other?

probably a stupid question but whatever i wasn't born knowing this stuff... in my account on eclipse it says btc wallet under bitcoin settings. i'm guessing i'm supposed to put my bitcoin address in there? how do i find it in my blockchain wallet? how do i hook the pool up to easy miner? supposedly easy miner has a gui or something but although windows task manager tells me bfgminer and cgminer are both running, i sure don't see any gui and theres nothing in the taskbar. is that right?
