Bminer: a fast Equihash miner for CUDA GPUs (5.1.0)

  • bminer

    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.


    • 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

    To mine Zcash on nanopool:

    Download and extract Bminer into a folder (e.g. C:\bminer or /home/bminer) Edit mine.bat (mine.sh2 on Linux) and change the address to the desired Zcash address that Bminer mines towards. Open command line prompt and run mine.bat (mine.sh1). Enjoy mining Smiley

    【Release notes】


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


    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.


    Minor performance improvement. Support older CPUs like Core 2 Duo. Support mining rigs that have more than 8 GPUs. Support luckpool.org1. Removed the polling option. Introduced the option -max-network-failures which allows Bminer to exit after consecutive network failures. Various improvement on the UI. Localization for Russian and Chinese.


    Minor performance improvement. Disable CPU polling by default. Introduce a Web-based dashboard. Support slushpool.


    Add the -polling option to make GPU polling configurable. Disabling polling reduces the CPU usage but it might reduce the performance in some configurations. Improve the stability of the network connections. First public release for Linux.
