How to set up Bminer?

Bminer is highly optimized miner for AMD and Nvidia GPUs. It is available for both Linux mining OS and Windows mining. It supports single coin mining for four different algorithms (such as Equihash variants, Zhash, Etchash, Tensority, and Cuckoo variants) and also a dual mining mode. The dev fees for using this miner vary from 0.65% to 2% depending on the algorithm.

If you want to use Bminer outside minerstat, you can download it through official sources:

How to set up Bminer with minerstat?

In this guide we will show you how to set up Bminer on minerstat for mining GRIN. The same procedure can be used for other coins and multi-algo pools. You can find a lot of config examples on the Bminer's official website as well.

1. Address editor

Open address editor and save the pool and wallet for mining GRIN. In this case, we will save GRIN pool under (POOL:GRIN) tag and GRIN wallet under (WALLET:GRIN) tag. Because of the way the Bminer defines its config, make sure that your pool doesn't have stratum:// or stratum+tcp:// before saved in the tag value.

2. Default mining client

Open worker's config and select BMINER as a default mining client.

3. BMINER config

Update the mining client's configuration so that it will be defined as:

-uri cuckaroo29m://(WALLET:GRIN).(WORKER)@(POOL:GRIN)

The tags will be automatically replaced with the values you have entered in the address editor. If you wish to use password, you can add :password after (WORKER) tag.

The values of stratum:// must be appropriately replaced by the algorithm you are using.

4. Troubleshooting

To start saving logs for Bminer, add the parameter -logfile=bminer.log to your mining configuration.

5. Save changes

Save changes and wait for mining client to restart. You are now mining GRIN with Bminer.
