How to set up ccminer?

Ccminer is probably one of the most forked miners out there - this means that there is a lot of alterations of this miner, each of them having support for its own algorithms, but being the same in the essence. We currently support 5 different alterations of ccminer: CCMINER-X16R, CCMINER-TPRUVOT, CCMINER-DJM34, CCMINER-ALEXIS, and CCMINER-KRNLX. Only CCMINER-TPRUVOT includes 16 algorithms, while others include additional algorithms that were added to the original miner. Ccminer can be used on Nvidia GPU rigs using Windows or Linux mining system.

All ccminer forks can be used the same way with configs being nearly identical. In this guide, we will show you how to mine SKEIN with ccminer Alexis, but you can use it for other alterations as well. If we miss any good fork of ccminer on our list of supported mining clients, let us know and we will add it.

1. Address editor

Open address editor and save the the pool and the wallet for mining SKEIN. In this case, we will save SKEIN pool under (POOL:SKEIN) tag and SKEIN wallet under (WALLET:SKEIN) tag.

2. Default mining client

Open worker's config and select CCMINER-ALEXIS as a default mining client.


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

-a skein -o (POOL:SKEIN) -u (WALLET:SKEIN).(WORKER) -p x -q

(WORKER) tag will be automatically replaced with your worker's name, so you don't have to change it. If you are using any other alteration of ccminer, please note that there is the algorithm parameter -a in the config. You must enter correct value for this parameter. Parameter -q denotes quiet mode, which disables per-thread hashmeter output. There is a lot of other useful parameters available - you can find them described on GitHub.

4. Save changes

Save changes and wait for mining client to restart. You are now mining SKEIN with ccminer Alexis.
