Bminer is a highly optimized Equihash miner that runs on modern NVIDIA GPUs (Maxwell and Pascal, i.e. GPUs that have compute capability 5.0 or above). Bminer is the fastest publicly available Equihash miners today. It features a completely restructured algorithm to maximize the stream processor occupancy and the instruction pipeline efficiency. It realizes the full potentials of Pascal GPU cards.

Bminer also comes with REST APIs to facilitate production deployments (e.g., mining farms).

Similar to other miners, Bminer contains 2% devfee.

Features

Fast

  • 735-745 Sol/s on GTX 1080Ti
  • 450-460 Sol/s on GTX 1070
  • 315-325 Sol/s on GTX 1060
  • On stock settings

Secure and reliable

  • SSL support
  • Automatic reconnects to recover from transient network failures
  • Automatic restarts if GPUs hang

Operation friendly

  • Comes with REST APIs to facilitate production deployments


Quickstart

To mine Zcash on nanopool:

  • Download and extract Bminer into a folder (e.g. C:\bminer or /home/bminer)
  • Edit mine.bat (mine.sh on Linux) and change the address to the desired Zcash address that Bminer mines towards.
  • Open command line prompt and run mine.bat (mine.sh).
  • Enjoy mining  Smiley

Please see https://www.bminer.me for advanced usages, APIs and updates.

  • Improve compatibility for NiceHash.

5.1.0

  • Support NiceHash.
  • Fix unstable network connections in 5.0.0.
  • Fix performance regressions for 1080Ti under Linux.

5.0.0

  • Minor performance improvement for GTX 1060.
  • Fixed performance regressions in 4.0.0 on Windows.
  • Optimization on the networking layer.
  • Show GPU ID in case of hardware errors.
  • Introduced the option -no-timestamps which suppresses the timestamps in the logging messages.

4.0.0

  • Minor performance improvement.
  • Support older CPUs like Core 2 Duo.

Looks interesting, I will however wait until there is a Linux version available.

I will also wait until a few of the more experienced users has tried and can verify that this is legit.

It's faster. Getting 10-15% more than EWBF.

Tested on a 1070ti just briefly, for me it is roughly 2-3% faster than dtsm miner.

In the miner window it reports higher hashrates for 1060 3GB, approximately 20 sols/s more compared compared to ewbf or 10 sol/s more compared dstm miner. Now it needs to be tested if hashrate on the pool is as high as reported.

Would be interested in it too. Whats the pool side rates for 1060 and 1070.

In either case it continues like this indefinitely, seemingly without getting any real work done. EWBF and dstm miners have been working fine both with and without VPN. I'm using a GTX 1070 on Windows 10. Please advise.

Ran the same settings on both miners and it's more like 4-5% more than EWBF. 1080 + 1070 =~1020 Sol/s on Bminer with 60% Power limit and 350 W at the wall. On EWBF it's ~970 Sol/s for both. The 1080 gets the biggest boost on Bminer about 10% ~574 Sol/s with 60% power limit. I'm mining on Flypool which only shows the effective hash rate, so it will take a while to be accurate but it seems legit.

The issue is that ewbf is not the fastest miner availible so it should be compared to dtsm´s miner and the increases are not that significant. But the 1080 boost seems nice, i will test it on my rigs.

I won't bother testing it as long as it is windows specific.

I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!
