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. More known 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.

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

How to set up ccminer with minerstat?

All ccminer forks can be used the same way with configs being nearly identical. In this guide, we will show you how to mine RCL with ccminer tpruvot, but you can use it for other alterations as well. If we missed 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 RCL. In this case, we will save RCL pool under (POOL:RCL) tag and RCL wallet under (WALLET:RCL) tag.

2. Default mining client

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


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

-a x16r -o (POOL:RCL) -u (WALLET:RCL) -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. Troubleshooting

To start saving logs for ccminer tpruvot, add the parameter --debug to your mining configuration.

5. Save changes

Save changes and wait for mining client to restart. You are now mining RCL with ccminer tpruvot.
