⚠️ Monero will change PoW algorithm to RandomX on November 30. ⚠️
Clipboard01

Required steps

  1. Miners and proxy should be updated to v3.2+ before November 30.
  2. If your pool not support algorithm negotiation option coin on each Monero pool should be set to monero.

Notes

  • xmrig-amd project now obsolete and will not updated, it integrated into main miner (v4.2+)
  • xmrig-nvidia will be integrated in main miner too.

Test pool

Right now is no testnet pool available, for test miner 2 options available:

Testnet pool https://rx.minexmr.com/ now available.

  1. randomx-benchmark.xmrig.com:7777 (xmrig-proxy connected to real Monero testnet daemon)
{
    "pools": [
        {
            "url": "randomx-benchmark.xmrig.com:7777"
        }
    ]
}
  1. Mine directly to Monero testnet daemon:
{
    "pools": [
        {
            "url": "127.0.0.1:28081",
            "daemon": true
        }
    ]
}

Notes for pool operators

  • New required field seed_hash should be added to each job object.
  • Optional field "algo":"rx/0" recommended to allow automatic algorithm negotiation.

If you had merged #1068 there would be testnet pools now.
