It supports several forks of CryptoNight, including: CryptoNight Alloy, CryptoNight ArtoCash, CryptoNight B2N, CryptoNight BitTubeV2, CryptoNight Conceal, CryptoNight Dark, CryptoNight Fast, CryptoNight Fast2, CryptoNight Fest, CryptoNight Gpu, CryptoNight Graft, CryptoNight Haven, CryptoNight Heavy, CryptoNight Hospital, CryptoNight Hycon, CryptoNight Italo, CryptoNight Lite, CryptoNight Lite V7, CryptoNight MarketCash, CryptoNight Mox, CryptoNight, CryptoNight V4 (R), CryptoNight V4_64, CryptoNight V7, CryptoNight V8, CryptoNight StelliteV4, CryptoNight StelliteV5-V8-V9, CryptoNight Swap, CryptoNight Turtle, CryptoNight Upx, CryptoNight Webchain, CryptoNight Wownero, CryptoNight XCash, and CryptoNight Zelerius.

The dev fee for mining with this mining client is 0.85%. The SRBMiner offers different interesting features, such as benchmark options and auto switch to new algorithm on the coin fork - which we know that is quite common for CryptoNight coins.

In this guide, we will show you how to mine XMR with SRBMiner. You can use the same procedure for other algorithms and coins.

1. Address editor

Open address editor and save the the pool and the wallet for mining XMR. We will save XMR pool under the (POOL:XMR) tag and XMR wallet under the (WALLET:XMR) tag.

2. Default mining client

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

3. SRBMINER config

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

--ccryptonighttype cryptonight_r --cpool (POOL:XMR) --cwallet (WALLET:XMR).(WORKER)

(WORKER) tag will be automatically replaced with your worker's name, so you don't have to change it. SRBMiner has a unique way of configuringthings. As you can see it uses --ccryptonighttype parameter to determine which algorithm you will mine. The possible values for --ccryptonighttype parameter are:

  • alloy
  • artocash
  • b2n
  • bittubev2
  • conceal
  • dark
  • fast
  • fast2
  • festival
  • gpu
  • graft
  • haven
  • heavy
  • hospital
  • hycon
  • italo
  • lite
  • litev7
  • marketcash
  • mox
  • normal
  • normalv4
  • normalv4_64
  • normalv7
  • normalv8
  • stellitev4
  • stellitev8
  • swap
  • turtle
  • upx
  • webchain
  • wownero
  • xcash
  • zelerius

SRBMiner also supports some other parameters that can be found on its official Bitcointalk thread. For example, you can set up config.txt file with different watchdog settings, such as:

  • giveup_limit to set how many times you want to try to connect to a pool before going to the next one;
  • intensity to set intensity setting;
  • retry_time to determine how long to wait before connecting to the pool;
  • and others.

The file pool.txt allows you to set up backup pools if the main pool (the first one defined) doesn't work. You can also set up different pool settings, passwords, and other parameters in this file.

4. Save changes

Save changes and wait for mining client to restart. You are now mining XMR with SRBMiner.
