Welcome to XEL!
XEL is a decentralized supercomputer based on cryptography and blockchain technology.

This is a prototype of a miner for solving XEL work packages. The miner is not optimized in any way as its purpose is to demonstrate all the functionality of ElasticPL and the workflow between the Miner & Elastic Node regardless of hardware or OS.
It is intended that other developers will improve upon the miner performance & functionality by creating versions for specific hardware / OS including all applicable optimizations.
The GPU miner is highly experimental. If you choose to use it, monitor your cards closely to ensure they don't overheat.
Run XEL Miner from sources
Miner v0.9.6 ElasticPL v0.9.1
The miner build has been tested using GCC on Ubuntu 16.04 as well as MinGW32 (using GCC) on Windows 7/10.
apt-get update apt-get install -y cmake libcurl4-openssl-dev libudev-dev screen libtool pkg-config libjansson-dev libssl-dev
you must first install homebrew (if not already installed):
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Then proceed with the installation :
brew install gmp make cmake openssl ln -s /usr/local/opt/openssl/include/openssl /usr/local/include/openssl
git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/xel-software/xel-miner cd xel-miner
if you don't want to use OpenCL :
cmake . make install
if you want to use OpenCL :
cmake . -USE_OPENCL make install
./xel_miner -t <num_threads> -P <secret_phrase> -D
./xel_miner -t <num_threads> -P <secret_phrase> -D --opencl
./xel_miner -h to see a full list of options.
