BMINER v16.2.1: Download with support for KAWPOW and ProgPoW (AMD / NVIDIA)

BMINER v16.2.1: Скачать с поддержкой KAWPOW и ProgPoW (AMD/NVIDIA)

GitHub: DOWNLOAD BMINER 16.2.1

Here is another update after the recent release of BMiner 16.1.0, the new Bminer 16.2.1 adds support for the new KAWPOW mining algorithm, which will be used by Ravencoin (RVN) after the fork later today, as well as support for the ProgPoW algorithm used by cryptocurrency coins, such as SERO . The wise hard rate of ProgPoW and KAWPOW, it seems, is not much different from what all the other miners with support for the new Ravencoin algorithm offer. The new version also improves performance when mining Aeternity and BFC, so it’s worth updating if you are mining too. Do not do this, although Bminer supports AMD and Nvidia GPUs, but not all algorithms will run on AMD hardware, which is why it is mainly used by Nvidia GPU owners. Keep in mind that neither KAWPOW nor ProgPoW currently work on AMD GPUs, so you can use this Ravencoin mining software after fork and SERO only on Nvidia. The same goes for the Aeternity and BFC algorithms, which received some performance improvements in the latest version; they also only work on Nvidia GPUs. So far, the only KAWPOW miner that supports AMD GPUs is NBMiner, so if you have Radeon GPUs and want to mine RVN after branching, this will be your only option for now. Bminer is a closed-source Nvidia miner GPU, available for Linux and Windows as precompiled binaries, and that for most supported algorithms such as Grin, Beam, Bytom (BTM), there is a standard development fee of 2%. Coins Equihash and Zhash, 0.65% for Ethash and 1.3% for dual mining of Ethash and Blake.

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 mine_grin29.sh (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 🙂

If you started Bminer and received the error message “Failed to initialize the CUDA platform: CudaError: Failed to initialize the NVML library”, then nothing happened with your mining equipment, the problem is in Bminer. The reason is that the newer Nvidia GPU drivers moved the nvml.dll library that the miner uses to a new location, and Bminer looks for the NVML dynamic link library in a specific place, so even if you copy the DLL file to the same folder where the miner is everything will not work yet. If you are using newer Nvidia drivers, you will have to copy the “nvml.dll” file from the “\ Windows \ System32 \” folder to “\ Program Files \ NVIDIA Corporation \ NVSMI \” and bear in mind that you need to create the NVSMI folder there as it will not exist, then copy the dll. Starting Bminer after copying the library (do not move the file, otherwise other programs may stop working properly, just copy it!) To the specified folder, the error message should be fixed, and the miner should work normally again.
