EquiHash 144,5 Cuda Miner

Funakoshi Equihash<144,5> Cuda Miner

In release v5.1 performance of equihash 144,5 has been improved.

Since release v4.8 --pers auto switch is supported (use auto only if your pool supports it).

Since release v4.5 users can connect to any equihash pool supporting 200,9 or 144,5 algo. Also any port can be specified (ssl is no longer enforced), and the --pers parameter is supported allowing users to mine any 144,5 coin.

Funakoshi-Miner is the fastest miner for Bitcoin-Gold with the new Proof-Of-Work algorithm,

How to run Funakoshi-Miner on Windows and choose the 2miners BitcoinGold pool:

funakoshiMiner.exe --algo 144_5 --pers BgoldPoW --server btg.2miners.com --port 4040 --user btg-wallet-addr.rig-id

How to run Funakoshi-Miner on Windows and choose the Suprnova BitcoinGold pool:

 funakoshiMiner.exe -l btg.suprnova.cc:8817 -u your-account-name.worker-name

How to run Funakoshi-Miner on Linux and choose the miningpoolhub BitcoinGold pool:

 funakoshiMiner -l europe.equihash-hub.miningpoolhub.com:20595 -u your-account-name.worker-name
     or
 funakoshiMiner --server us-east.equihash-hub.miningpoolhub.com --port 20595 --user your-account-name.worker-name

How to run Funakoshi-Miner on Windows and choose btgpool:

 funakoshiMiner.exe -l eu.btgpool.pro:1445 -u your-btg-wallet-address.worker-name    (eu. or us. or asia.)

The following BitcoinGold pools are supported:

 suprnova, miningpoolhub, pool.gold, btgpool.pro, solo.btgpool.pro, coinblockers.com,

Developer fee:

1.5 %

Speed:

Funakoshi-Miner is the fastest equihash solver.

Over 525 solves per-second for GTX 1080 <200,9> (without overclocking).

Avg 47-56 sol/s for GTX 1080     <144,5>
Avg 66-75 sol/s for GTX 1080ti   <144,5>
Avg 37-45 sol/s for GTX 1070     <144,5>
Avg 26-31 sol/s for GTX 1060 6gb <144,5>

Nvidia Pascal GPUs auto manage the clock depending on current load.

Note: The statistical nature of the EquiHash algorithm causes
the reported solves per second to change all the time.

Each 15 seconds, Funakoshi solver logs its counters of hashes/secs and solves/secs (no cheating).
Disregard the first reported speed (it is lower due to initial handshake with the pool).

What's important to you is the pool measurement. From the pool you earn your money.
Thus when you want to compare the speed of different miner programs ask the pool.
Note that the pool also changes its estimation of miner speed all the time. So,
you should take the avarage over time.

The miner submits to the pool only a small portion of the solves (depending
on the current target difficulty), and the pool estimates the miner speed.
Each submit event is logged.

Exactly 1.5 percent of all submited solves are used as developer fee.

Zcash-miner

Funakoshi Equihash Cuda Miner

In release v2.6 performance of GTX 1060 (6 GB) has jumped. Smaller performance gain for other cards.

In release v2.3 added simple telemetry, fixed bugs wasting cpu, and improved stability.

In release v2.2 there is a jump in performance when using multiple gpu's (rig).

A breakthrough in performance has been implemented in release v2.1

Can be used for mining:

 All equihash crypto coins: Zcash (ZEC), ZClassic (ZCL), ...
 Using EquiHash<200, 9> or EquiHash<144, 5> algorithms.

Privacy:

Funakoshi-Miner collects absolutely nothing about its users.
Funakoshi-Miner opens only a single connection (to the user specified pool).
This can be verified by using a sniffer or a firewall.
Thus theoreticaly no data about users can be collected by the miner.

Supported Operating Systems:

 * Windows-7 and above  (file: funakoshiMiner.exe)
 * The following Linux distributions: Ubuntu, Fedora  (file: funakoshiMiner)

Tested on:

* Windows 7, 10 
* Ubuntu 16.4, 17.10
* Fedora 26, 27

Not working on:

* Centos 6, 7

Supported GPUs:

* Nvidia Pascal and above

Tested GPUs:

* Nvidia GTX 1060 6 GB
* Nvidia GTX 1070
* Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti
* Nvidia GTX 1080
* Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti
* Titan Xp collector's edition

Command-Line arguments:

* Selected GPUs  : -cd 0 1 2 ... (selects which cuda-devices meaning GPUs to use - starting from 0)
                        The default when -cd arg is not specified is to use all found Nvidia gpu cards
                        (from v2.5).
* Pool Address   : -l poolDomain:port  (domain of pool server plus port number)
                       poolDomain can be prefixed by ssl:// to enforce using ssl (when specified port is ssl-port).
* Pool Domain    : --server (the poolDomain as in -l without the port)
* Pool Port      : --port (the pool port as port part in -l without the domain and without ':')
* Pool User      : -u account-or-wallet-name.worker (your account-name in the pool or wallet-address plus worker name)
* Pool User      : --user (synonym to -u)
* Wallet Address : -u tWalletAddress.worker (your t wallet address plus worker name)
* Max Temperature: -temp-max t1 t2 ... one value (celsius) per each GPU. When reached
                    solver suspends work until temp' drops to corresponding -temp-min
* Min Temperature: -temp-min t1 t2 ... one value (celsius) per each GPU. When GPU temp'
                    drops from corresponding temp-max to temp-min work is resumed (since
                    v3.2 -temp-min is defaulted to -temp-max minus 10 when not specified).
* Max Temp' all  : -temp-max-all t (defines same upper temperature bound for all GPUs).
* Min Temp' all  : -temp-min-all t (defines same lower temperature bound for all GPUs).
* Password       : -p x (usually not required)
* Password       : --pass (synonym to -p)
* Log File       : -f fileName (from release v0.9)
* Telemetry      : -tele-port p  (activating http telemetry and listening on 127.0.0.1:p).
* <144,5>        : -144 (use equihash parameters 144,5). Default for BitcoinGold pools (since v3.4).
* <144,5>        : --algo 144_5 (synonym to -144)
* Pers-String    : --pers BgoldPow (when mining BitcoinGold, pers strings are part of submit msgs to pool).
                   --pers auto (allow the pool to control the value of the personalization string, use only when supported by the pool).

Notes:

Pascal GPUs auto control clock speed to prevent the temperature from going too high.
To be on the safe size you can set -temp-max to 83 and -temp-min to 75 (for example).

Some pools require you to sign-up and define an account. For those pools the account-name
is passed in the -u argument. Other pools require you to pass your 't' wallet address and
for those pools your wallet-address is passed in the -u argument.

When running the miner and Chrome (for viewing telemetry) on the same machine, Chrome may
prevent Pascal GPUs from auto boosting. Thus it is recommended to run Firefox on the same
machine or to run Chrome on another machine and use SSH tunnel.
