How to set up CryptoDredge?

CryptoDredge is highly optimized cryptocurrency miner for Nvidia GPUs. It is available for both Linux mining OS and Windows mining. Beside using different optimization techniques for increasing the hashrate, CryptoDredge team also focuses on providing a stable power consumption. CryptoDredge support various algorithms: Allium, BCD, BitCore, C11, CryptoLightV7, CryptoNightFast, CryptoNightFastV2, CryptoNightGPU, CryptoNightHaven, CryptoNightHeavy, CryptoNightSaber, CryptoNightSuperFast, CryptoNightTurtle, CryptoNightV7, CryptoNightV8, Cuckaroo29, CuckooCycle, Dedal, HMQ1725, Lyra2REv3, Lyra2vc0ban, Lyra2z, Lyra2zz, MTP, NeoScrypt, PHI1612, Phi2, Pipe, Skunkhash, Tribus, X16R, X16RT, X16S, X17, X21S, and X22i. The dev fee for mining with CryptoDredge is 2% for MTP algorithm and 1% for all other algorithms.

In this guide we will show you how to set up CryptoDredge for mining BCD. The same procedure can be used for other coins and multi-algo pools.

1. Address editor

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

2. Default mining client

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

3. CRYPTODREDGE's config

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

-a bcd -o (POOL:BCD) -p x -u (WALLET:BCD).(WORKER)

The tags will be automatically replaced with the values you have entered in the address editor. (WORKER) tag will be automatically replaced with the worker's name. Please note that CryptoDredge uses algorithm parameter so when you change the config, you will need to appropriately update the -a or -algo parameter as well. Possible values are: aeon,aeternity,allium,bcd,bitcore,c11,cnfast,cnfast2,cngpu,cnhaven,cnheavy,cnsaber,cnsuperfast,cnturtle,cnv7,cnv8,cuckaroo29,dedal,hmq1725,lyra2v3,lyra2vc0ban,lyra2z,lyra2zz,mtp,neoscrypt,phi,phi2,pipe,skunk,tribus,x16r,x16rt,x16s,x17,x21s, andx22i.

There are some other useful parameters you can use in the CryptoDredge's config - you can find all of them on its official Bitcointalk thread.

4. Save changes

Save changes and wait for mining client to restart. You are now mining BCD with CryptoDredge. Note that if you will update your AMD worker with CryptoDredge's config, the settings won't be saved as CryptoDredge only support Nvidia GPUs.
