Release notes

This release adds mining support of 2 new currencies. Their aliases are keva and safex respectively. If you are planning to mine a coin that has same algo: use randomx_keva and randomx_safex in pools.txt or in "currency to mine" setup parameter. Xmr-Stak-RX 1.0.5 is also now up to date with newest xmrig.

Since GPUs have no sense in RandomX mining compared to CPUs - we disabled it in Xmr-Stak-RX build. If you wish to mine GPU coins (Like Ryo with Cryptonight-GPU): use Xmr-Stak build.


Q: Why guys that say they 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.

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: 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.
