Nanominer v3.5.2: Download and configure - Quick start [2021]

Nanominer is a fast and stable, convenient and reliable miner released by Nanopool - one of the best solutions for cryptocurrency mining.

Nanominer is a software product developed by nanopool for creating structural cryptocurrency units based on the Ethash, Etchash, KawPow, Octopus, Ubqhash, Cuckaroo30, RandomX and Verushash algorithms. current version nanominer was created to work with every cryptocurrency based on these algorithms, including Ethereum, Ravencoin, Ethereum Classic, Conflux, QuarkChain, Ubiq, Monero, Cortex, VerusCoin and many more. This version nanominer runs on Windows or Linux with AMD or Nvidia graphics cards (except for the Random X and Verushash algorithms, which are only supported on the processor). The Cuckaroo30 algorithm is only supported on AMD Radeon RX 570 16GB GPU. Octopus is currently only supported on Nvidia GPUs.

Example of Nanominer settings (bat-file)

The miner is launched using the command line in the Linux operating system or a bat file in Windows. Below are examples of bat files for each of the cryptocurrencies that can be mined with Nanominer. Remember to replace YOUR_ADDRESS with your wallet address and RIG_ID with your farm name. You can choose the name yourself absolutely arbitrarily, it must contain only letters of the English alphabet and the signs "-" and "_". The wallet must be specified for the cryptocurrency you are mining.

Nanominer additional parameters

Запуск программы для майнинга иногда требует дополнительных настроек, например, вам нужно отключить одну из карт или установить лимит рабочей температуры карты. Ниже мы подготовили для вас список из наиболее популярных настроек майнера Nanominer. Чтобы применить настройку, добавьте ее к стандартной строке запуска, указанной выше. Обычно параметры майнера не могут изменить разгон видеокарты. Подробная инструкция по разгону видеокарт представлена в этой статье.

Nanominer is launched using a special configuration file (config.ini). First, run the bat file as shown in the example above. This will create a configuration file. Further, all additional parameters for starting the program are written one on each line in this configuration file (config.ini).

Nanominer automatically detects whether you are trying to connect to the pool via SSL protocol or not. For an SSL connection, no additional parameters need to be specified. Please note that the address of the pool with SSL is usually different from the address of the pool without SSL. Example eth.2miners.com:12020 - 2Miners Ethereum pool for SSL connection, eth.2miners.com:2020 - 2Miners Ethereum pool without SSL.

devices= allows you to use only the necessary video cards for mining. After devices =, specify the indices of the video cards that you want to use, separated by commas, while the first video card has an index of 0. For example, if you have a rig of 6 video cards, the indices of the video cards go from 0 to 5. Adding a parameter devices=0,1,2,3,5 will start mining on all video cards except the fifth one (with index 4).

noLog disables the creation of a log file. By default, a log file is created and written to the directory where the program is located.

countDevShares=false allows you to disable the display of statistics for those balls in the miner's statistics that were found at the time of mining to the developer's wallet. By default, the statistics of these shares are included in the general statistics of the miner.

Nanominer allows you to configure the overclocking parameters of the video card in the miner launch line. Overclocking settings can be applied to all video cards together, to do this, specify only one value, for example coreClocks=+100 or to each of the video cards separately, to do this, specify the values ​​separated by commas coreClocks=+100,-100,+150

powerLimits= sets the maximum power consumption of the video card (power limit) as a percentage from -50 to 50. For example powerLimits=-10 sets the maximum power consumption to 90%, and powerLimits=+20 specifies 120%.

coreClocks= adjusts the core clock in MHz for Nvidia video cards. Use relative values ​​like -200, +300, etc. like coreClocks=+100 or absolute values ​​like coreClocks=1000

memClocks= adjusts the video memory clock (memory clock) in MHz for Nvidia video cards. Use relative values ​​like -200, +300, etc. like memClocks=+100 or absolute values ​​like memClocks=4000

Benefits and Testimonials

Positive aspects of working with nanopool eth / etc:

  • High pool hashrate.
  • Customizable payout system.
  • Good technical support.
  • Lack of registration.
  • Availability of a mobile application for monitoring production.

And, of course, the reliability of the service, which has been operating in the market for two years and has earned many positive reviews.

A relative disadvantage is the lack of a Russian-language interface, but this can be easily solved with the help of a browser translator, and there is nothing to do in mining without a minimum knowledge of English.
