Gminer is a well-known miner that is in demand in the community. Its main advantage is the support of many algorithms and, accordingly, cryptocurrencies. We are talking about Aeternity, Ethereum, Beam, Grin, ZelCash, BitcoinZ and even Nervos CKB, whose network hashrate recently flew up. We tell you how to properly configure the miner and start working with it. Gminer is a miner with support for many mining algorithms. The program is suitable for video cards from Nvidia and AMD, however, preference is still given first.
Changes in v2.19:
cuckarooz29 performance improvements
removed grin29 automatic fork switching
Gminer developers charge a percentage for using their product, and there is nothing strange about it. The commissions for the algorithms are different. For Ethash, which runs Ethereum and Ethereum Classic, the commission is 0.65 percent. For Cuckaroom29, it is 3 percent, for Cortex – 5 percent, and so on.
