New T-REX miner v0.15.6: Download with Kawpow support (RVN Fork)

The T-Rex miner version 0.15.3 introduced support for the new KAWPOW algorithm, as expected during the RavenCoin (RVN) fork. In addition to the new Kawpow support, the latest T-Rex miner also adds support for the ProgPow and MTP-tcr algorithms. The new version v0.15.6 brings with it a number of useful changes and improvements, as well as a number of bug fixes.

DEV FEE: Developer fee is 1% (3% for Tensority).

Changelog v0.15.x:

0.15.6
Bug fixes:
DAG regeneration on epoch change.
Benchmark for kawpow.

0.15.5
Bug fixes:
Less memory consumption. Possible crash fix for “out of memory” error for GPUs with 3GB memory onboard.
Unblock feature of intensity setting.

0.15.4
Bug fixes:
Fix showing miner version info for mining pool

0.15.3
Add algorithms: kawpow (upcoming RVN fork), progpow, mtp-tcr
Add SNI support for SSL
Improve stat table (now showing percentage of rejected shares)
NOTE (RVN fork): In order for the miner to automatically switch to mining kawpow at the time of RVN fork, please make sure
T-Rex is launched in watchdog mode (--no-watchdog parameter should NOT be set in your bat file)
Your system clock is synchronised with a time server (The miner uses your system clock to check if it’s time to switch)
Add --fork-at kawpow=2020-05-06T18:00:00 parameter to the miner start cmd line. If your pool changes ports for the new algo, make it --fork-at kawpow:3637=2020-05-06T18:00:00 where 3637 is the new port the miner should switch to (replace it with the actual port number)

JSON config file

To start T-Rex with the config.txt configuration file, in the console, type: t-rex -c config.txt. Use the config_example file as a starting point to create your own configuration. You can also use environment variables: just put% YOUR_ENV_VAR% anywhere in your configuration file and it will automatically replace the value of the YOUR_ENV_VAR variable at run time.

Watchdog

The watchdog timer is designed to monitor the status of the miner and restarts the T-Rex in the event of a failure or freezing for any reason. In addition, the watchdog timer can optionally perform automatic updates if a newer version is available. We recommend that you use a watchdog timer to avoid mining downtime and make sure your GPUs are busy 24/7. If you need to disable the watchdog, you can do this with the –no-watchdog option.

Antivirus alerts

Please note miners are often marked as malware by antivirus programs. This is not so, they are marked simply because they are cryptocurrency miners. If you do not trust the software, do not use it!

To protect the miner from reverse engineering attacks, the binaries are packaged using third-party software that distorts the source machine code. As a result, some anti-virus engines can detect certain signatures in the executable file, which are similar to those of real viruses protected by the same packer.

Tips

To maximize the speed of hashing, our software uses all available resources of the GPU, so it is important to check the overclocking settings before mining. Our general recommendation is to start with the factory settings of the GPU (without overclocking, the default restrictions are the default), and then, making sure it is stable, slowly increase its overclocking to find the “weak point” in which the miner works best, but still not working. bump into.
