This miner supports a range of algorithms. Please see the list below for details. The miner is configured via command line only, please run with the --help option to print a short help message for how to use the command line options.
The miner includes a read-only api based on the sgminer-5.5 API. Both the json and text formats are supported. For more details, we refer to the sgminer api documentation.
This miner includes the following algorithms and respective dev fees:
- Cryptonight R: 2.5%
- Cryptonight v8 upx2: 2.5%
