Bminer is a highly optimized cryptocurrency miner that runs on modern NVIDIA GPUs (Maxwell and Pascal, i.e. GPUs that have compute capability 5.0 or above). Bminer is one of the fastest publicly available miners today -- we use various techniques including tiling and pipelining to realize the full potentials of the hardware.

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

  • Bminer supports mining Equihash-based coins (e.g., Zcash) with 2% of devfee.
  • Bminer supports mining Ethash-based coins (e.g., Ethereum) with 0.65% of devfee.
  • Bminer also supports dual mining mode - mining Ethash-based coins (e.g. Ethereum) and Blake14r-based coins (e.g. Decred) / Blake2s-based coins (e.g. Verge) at the same time. Devfee for the dual mining mode is 1.3%, and the second coin (e.g. Decred/Verge) is mined without devfee.
  • Bminer supports mining Tensority-based coins (e.g., Bytom(BTM)) with 2% of devfee.

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.

Hi. I'm interested in Bminer but I'm receiving errors when connecting to Slushpool (my preferred Zcash pool).

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!

thanks for taking one for the team! Keep us posted. glad to see more miners being developed!
