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 currently supports mining Equihash-based coins (e.g., Zcash) with 2% of devfee. It also provides experimental supports for Ethash-based coins (e.g., Ethereum) with 0.65% of devfee.

Automatic restarts if GPUs hang

Operation friendly

Comes with REST APIs to facilitate production deployments


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).

To mine Ethereum on ethermine.org:

Download and extract Bminer into a folder (e.g. C:\bminer or /home/bminer)
Edit mine.bat (mine.sh on Linux) and change the parameters according
Open command line prompt and run mine.bat (mine.sh).
