krist-miner

The second fastest open source CPU Krist miner, written in Go.

Performance

This miner is up to 3.5x faster than YTCI Krist Miner. It is at least 2.5x faster than YTCI Krist Miner.

On my Macbook Pro 15-inch Retina (Mid 2014) which has an Intel Core i7-4870HQ, running with 8 processes gives me speeds around 18 MH/s.

This miner has a very light memory footprint of < 3 MB. Whereas YTCI miner requires a Java VM which has a much larger overhead.

Binaries

Binaries can be found under releases.

Usage

Execute the binary in a terminal or command line for help.

Donations

I don't even know why I'm bothering to put this section here, but if for some reason you would like to send me some virtual currency that has almost no value, feel free to send some KST to me for whatever reason.
