CryptoDredge v0.25.1 – NVIDIA GPU Miner (Download and Configure)


CryptoDredge is an easy-to-use and optimized cryptocurrency mining program. It takes full advantage of modern NVIDIA video cards through the use of unique optimization techniques. We have also paid great attention to stable power consumption. These advantages, along with a very small developer fee, make our product one of the best publicly available miners.

Notes

Antivirus Software Reports

CryptoDredge is not malware. You can try to add an exception to the antivirus software you are using.

Rejected Shares

There are many reasons for rejecting stocks. The main reasons are:

  • high network latency
  • Overloaded mining server
  • Aggressive overclocking of the graphics card

Watchdog

If you use a third-party watchdog, you can disable the built-in watchdog using the –no-watchdog parameter.

Example:
Code:CryptoDredge -a <ALGO> -o stratum+tcp://<POOL> -u <WALLET_ADDRESS> --no-watchdog

Several Instances After a While

It looks like you are using CryptoDredge’s own restart mechanism (see Watchdog item).

Crash Reporting

If the built-in watchdog is enabled, CryptoDredge will generate a report and send it to us. You can disable error reporting with the –no-crashreport parameter. Allowing CryptoDredge to send us automatic reports helps us prioritize what needs to be fixed and improved in future versions.

Failure reports will not contain any personal information about you, but may include:

  • Operating System version
  • Driver version
  • Miner configuration
  • Application crash data

MTP Algorithm

  • System Requirements:
    • GPUs with at least 5 GB of memory
    • No special requirements to the processor and RAM, 4 GB should be enough

Compared to other algorithms, MTP requires transferring large amounts of data to the pool. This can be a problem for a limited and slow connection.

The miner has to do extra work every time the pool sends a new “job”, so the average hash rate will be a bit slow.

The developer fee is 2% for MTP.

Configure & Run CryptoDredge

Quick Start:

  1. Download program
  2. Unzip to any convenient place
  3. Set up a .bat file and run it

The current version of CryptoDredge is a console application. Unpack the downloaded archive and edit one of the sample .bat / .sh files or specify the necessary command line arguments.

Example:
Code:CryptoDredge -a <ALGO> -o stratum+tcp://<POOL> -u <WALLET_ADDRESS> -p <OPTIONS>

System requirements:

  1. The latest version of the program requires the latest drivers from Nvidia.
  2. NVIDIA graphics cards supporting CUDA 5.0 or higher (Maxwell, Pascal architecture)
  3. Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit versions)
  4. Ubuntu 16.04+, Debian 9.0+ (64-bit versions)
    • Package libc-ares2. Installing libc-ares2 package is as easy as running the following command on terminal: sudo apt install libc-ares2

Setting .bat CryptoDredge:

  1. the argument title (title) of the program. It specifies a title of your choice. We indicate the coin, pool and algorithm for easy tracking
  2. CryptoDredge name of the program to run. Don’t change it, otherwise CryptoDredge won’t start. Please note that the .bat file must be located in the folder with the program
  3. -a phi2 coin mining algorithm. For LUXcoin we write phi2. And for the GINcoin on the Lyra2Z algorithm, we would specify -a lyra2z
  4. -o eu.bsod.pw address of the pool you selected
  5. :6667 pool port. It is indicated after the colon. Please note that on many pools, different algorithms have different ports
  6. -u your digital wallet address
  7. c=LUX mined coin token, if not specified, the pool may not understand which coin you want to mine

Command-Line Arguments:

-v, –version Print version information
-a, –algo Specify algorithm to use

-d, –device List of comma-separated device IDs to use for mining. IDs are numbered 0,1…,N – 1
-h, –help Print help information
-i, –intensity Mining intensity (0.08.0). For example: -i N[,N] (default: 6)
-o, –url URL of mining pool
-p, –pass Password/Options for mining pool
-u, –user Username for mining pool
-x, –proxy Connecting through a proxy. Syntax: protocol://[user:password@]proxyhost[:port]. For example: -x socks5://proxyuser:12345@127.0.0.1:1080. Supported proxy types: Socks5 for TCP connections, HTTP for Websocket connections.
–cert Path to the mining pool server certificate file for stratum+ssl connections. If not specified, the server certificate is not verified, but the connection remains secure.
–sni Enable SNI (Server Name Indication) for the pool connection
–log Log output to file
–no-color Force color off
–no-watchdog Force watchdog off
–no-crashreport Force crash reporting off

  • ccminer-ws (ccminer 2.3 WebSocket)
  • off

-b, –api-bind IP:port for the miner API, 0 disabled (default: 127.0.0.1:4068)
-r, –retries N number of times to retry if a network call fails, -1 retry indefinitely (default: -1)
-R, –retry-pause N time to pause between retries, in seconds (default: 15)
–timeout N network timeout, in seconds (default: 300)
-c, –config JSON configuration file to use
–no-nvml Force NVML off
