Bminer 16.0.7: fast Equihash/Ethash/Cuckaroo29 miner for AMD/NVIDIA GPUs

DOWNLOAD: Bminer 16.0.7

Bminer 16.0.7 – highly optimized cryptocurrency miner that runs on modern AMD / NVIDIA GPUs (Maxwell and Pascal, that is, on GPUs with a computing capability of 5.0 or higher). Bminer is one of the fastest miners available today – we use various methods, including mosaic and pipelining, to realize the full potential of the equipment.

Bminer also comes with REST APIs to simplify product deployment (such as mining farms).

  • Bminer supports Equihash-based coin mining (e.g. Zcash) with 2% of devfee. Bminer supports mining coins based on Zhash / Equihash 144.5 (for example, BitcoinGold, BitcoinZ) with 2% of the devi-fay.
  • Bminer supports Ethash-based coin mining (e.g. Ethereum) with 0.65% of devfee.
  • Bminer also supports dual mining mode – mining coins based on Ethash (e.g. Ethereum) and coins based on Blake14r (e.g. Decred) / coins based on Blake2s (e.g. Verge) at the same time.
  • Devfee for dual mining mode is 1.3%, and the second coin (for example, Decred / Verge) is mined without devfee.
  • Bminer supports mining coins based on Tensority (e.g. Bytom (BTM)) with 2% of devfee.


  • Retire the supports for XVG, DCR, and VBK.
  • Initial support for mining Ethash as well as dual mining Ethash and Handshake on AMD platforms.

Fast start

  1. Download and extract Bminer to a folder (e.g. C: \ bminer or / home / bminer)
  2. Depending on the coins you want to get, find the appropriate script in the folder.
    • For example, the corresponding script is mine_grin29.bat (on Windows) or (on Linux) when mining Grin using the Cuckaroo29 algorithm.
  3. Change the address and account information in the script.
  4. Run the script and enjoy mining 🙂
