@psychocrypt psychocrypt released this Dec 29, 2019

To improve our support we created /r/xmrstak sub-reddit check it out if you have a problem, or you are looking for most up to date config for your card.

Q: Are you just stealing from xmrig?
A: It is a popular Monero propaganda line. Xmr-stak has been around for much longer than xmrig. They copied xmr-stak code [ 1 ]. We didn't complain - that's the point of free and open source software. Xmrig developer actively pushed free xmr-stak versions - and when we made xmr-stak-rx free, he decided it has a virus 😂 [ 2 ]. If you feel that this kind of guy deserves your financial support, we are nice enough to put the link on the front page.

Q: Why is my "friend" saying that I shouldn't be using free Xmr-Stak-RX or faster RagerX, but instead - go through extra steps to get free xmrig?
A: This is cryptocurreny world. Everyone is looking out for themselves. What your "friend" is trying to do is advance his social position by giving you bad financial advice. Think with your wallet, don't put yourself at a financial disadvantage to please a guy you have never seen.

Q: Why guys that say that want decentralisation want everyone to use one miner?
A: Because just like privacy it is just an empty marketing slogan, with no relation to what community leaders actually want.
