farm failover (getwork + stratum)
Ethereum-based ProgPoW implementations supported only, doesn’t support previous ethash version or Bitcoin-based forks
Standalone executables for Linux, macOS and Windows are provided in the Releases section. Download an archive for your operating system and unpack the content to a place accessible from command line. The kawpowminer is ready to go.
For AMD-only rigs please use the version with -amd tagged , cuda version wouldn’t work for you rig.
