Claymore's Dual Miner - has long been the most popular miner for Ethereum and other Dagger-Hashimoto coins, including Ethereum Classic, Pirl, Callisto and Expanse. The miner works great with NVIDIA and AMD video cards, and does not require additional complex settings.
In addition, it shows an excellent hash rate - more than any other miner. The miner's commission is 1%, that is, within an hour, the program mines 36 seconds to its developer's wallet. Miner commission is not charged for weak video cards with 2 and 3 GB of memory. All miners know the following: if you want to dig Ethereum - put Claymore's, there is nothing to think about.
You can download the miner from the link below.
- Supports application of optimized memory timings (belts) on the fly in Windows, without re-flashing VBIOS (currently only Polaris, Vega, Nvidia 10xx cards), acceleration up to 20%. Best Ethereum Belts Included.
- Supports a new "dual mining" mode: Ethereum and Decred / Siacoin / Lbry / Pascal / Blake2s / Keccak mining at the same time, without affecting the Ethereum mining speed. Ethereum-only mining mode is also supported.
- The effective mining speed of Ethereum is 3-5% higher due to completely different miner code - much fewer invalid and obsolete shares, higher GPU load, optimized OpenCL code, optimized assembler kernels.
- Supports AMD and nVidia cards, even mixed ones.
- No DAG files.
- Supports all versions of Stratum for Ethereum: can be used directly without any proxy with all pools supporting eth-proxy, qtminer or miner-proxy.
- Supports Ethereum and Siacoin solo mining.
- Supports HTTP and Stratum for Decred.
- Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Siacoin.
- Supports Stratum for Lbry, Pascal, Blake2s, Keccak.
- Supports failover.
- Displays detailed mining information and hash rate for each card.
- Supports remote monitoring and control.
- Supports GPU selection, built-in GPU overclocking and thermal management.
- Versions for Windows and Linux.
Latest change log v15.0
- miner now supports epoch up to # 384 (4GB DAG size). Please note that previous versions support epoch # 299, you will not be able to use older versions after epoch # 299.
- added support for Navi maps (ETH-only mode).
- miner now sets environment variables automatically (required for AMD 4GB cards).
- several minor bug fixes and improvements.
Step 1: Download the miner
Unpack the archive anywhere on your computer.
In the folder containing the miner, you must create a file with a .bat extension. You can do this in any text editor (eg Notepad). When you save a file, it is important to select “All Files” as the file type, not “txt”. Otherwise, you will have .bat.txt at the end of the file name and the miner will not be able to open that file. Your bat file (let's say it's called test.bat) should contain the following text (step 2):
Attention! For security reasons, Windows may prevent you from opening the bat file. In this case, you must allow it to open in a pop-up window.
Step 2: Configure .bat file to run Claymore Dual Miner
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0 setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1.ethermine.org:4444 -eworker ИМЯ_ВАШЕЙ_ФЕРМЫ -ewal АДРЕС_ВАШЕГО_КОШЕЛЬКА -epsw x
Step 3: Change the wallet address to your own
YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS - enter YOUR Ethereum wallet address (so that the Claymore Miner program knows where to send your mined Ethereum) YOUR_FARM_NAME - you can choose any name (for example, test), but do not write a lot: the field should be no more than 32 characters, contain only letters and numbers (no special characters like $% "*; @) ..
Step 4: start mining
Double click your Bat file to launch the miner. The program will open, run setx commands to set environment variables, initialize each of your video cards, create DAG files for each card, and start mining. Let Claymore run for about 20 seconds and then press "s" to display your hash rate. If you followed the steps above, you should see a screen like this.
Command line arguments for .bat file
-epool Ethereum pool address
-eworker Name of your farm or video card
-ewal Your Ethereum wallet address
-epsw Pool password. If there is no password on the pool, then leave 'x'
How to check how much Ether have you mined?
Each pool has its own interface, but the principle remains the same. You will need to go to your pool website and enter your public wallet address. Let's take an Etheremine pool as an example. You enter your wallet address in the search bar and you can see all the information about your Ethereum mining efforts. In the case of an Etheremine pool, once your balance reaches 0,01 ETH, it will be sent to your wallet address that you entered in the start.bat file earlier.
