EWBF-miner (Zcash CUDA miner) – A miner written for Pascal GPUs, but it works on cards with a memory capacity of at least 1 GB and a processing power of 3 or higher. The miner has a built-in developer commission of 2% (DevFee 2%).
EWBF’s Cuda miner is one of the most popular Equihash (Zhash) miners. It is compatible with Nvidia GPUs. Its main competitors are miniZ and Funakoshi.
Currently, the latest version is EWBF Miner v0.6, which is compatible with Equihash 144.5, 210.9, 192.7 and 96.5. There is also EWBF’s Cuda Zcash, which is suitable for Equihash for coins such as Zcash and Zclassic. In this case, you should choose 0.3.4b.
- A slightly improved speed of about 2%
- Added option –intensity, sets maximum intensity.
- Added support for configuration files.
- Add option –config, sets the name of the config file.
- Added support for failover servers, through config files.
- Added new values to the api method getstat.
- Add http api you can use
http://127.0.0.1:42000/getstataddress to get statistics.
- Added simple web page with statistics, simply open the api address in the web browser. (Experemental)
- Fixed couple of bugs.
Added option –pec power efficiency calculator.
Added option –fee developer fee control.
Use miner –help command for more information.
Increased speed up to 2%, depends on card model. some cards not give any speed changes. Reduced gpu memory usage. Improved stability.
Increased speed up to 4%, depends on card model. some cards not give any speed changes. Minor optimizations.
- Integrated nvml (NVIDIA Management Library) for temperature monitoring.
- Added option –templimit for set max gpu temperature.
- Add option –logfile for custom file name.
- Added option –api simple json based api.
- Option –solver now allow you to set solvers for different devices.
- Optimizations up to 2% depends on cards.
- See file Help.txt for more detailed help.
- Added three additional solvers.
- Added benchmark which test each solver on miner start and select fastest for each card.
- Add option –solver to manual solver selection.
- Added option –eexit to exit when the miner fails, it will allow you to use a script to automatically restart or perform other actions
- Added option –log logging to a file.
- Minor optimizations of solvers and working loop as a result 1 – 4% speed increase depends on card model.
- Thanks to new solvers now this version must work with old gpus better.
- For more info about new options see help -h for short explanation and examples.
Speed increase 2 – 5% For old cards compute capabilities 2.x 3.x try version 0.0.6b it can be faster.
- Speed increase to 10%.
- NOTE this version can be unstable.
- For old cards compute capabilities 2.x 3.x try version 0.0.6b it can be faster.
- “Cosmetic” optimizations of solver. Increased speed around 2%
- Reduced amount of rejected shares.
- New dynamic intensity system.
- Performance improvements. Old cards may be slower than with version 0.0.6b.
- I wanted release it as fast as possible. So new solver can be less stable.
- For some older cards performance improvements up to 10%
- Bug fixes
- Speed improvement up to 20%
- Fixed stratum compatibility (works better with many pools)
- Fixed 1Gb card bug
- Added statistic (counter of shares and ping)
- Completely new watchdog system.
- Fixed a bug in the solver
- Binary linux version compiled and tested in debian.

How to Setup EWBF’s Cuda Equihash Miner
EWBF is very easy to setup. Here is the basic setup scheme for Equihash 144.5.
miner --algo 144_5 --server SERVER_ADDR --port PORT --user USER --pass PASSWORD
Here is what a .bat file looks like for Bitcoin Gold mining on 2Miners pool.
miner.exe --algo 144_5 --pers BgoldPoW --server http://btg.2miners.com --port 4040 --user YOUR_ADDRESS.RIG_ID --pass x
As an example, we are showing the correct .bat file for EWBF’s Cuda Zcash below. In this example, we are mining Zcash on Equihash.
:restart @echo off TIMEOUT 5 miner --server zec.2miners.com --port 1010 --user YOUR_ADDRESS.RIG_ID --pass x --eexit 3 --pec --fee 0 ping 127.0.0.1 > nul goto :restart
If you enter the data and launch the .bat file, you will see the following. It means that your rig is connected to the pool and that the miner is working properly.
After the connection is established, the user will appear in the
Shortly thereafter, he will receive his payout.
