All you have to do is download, extract and run the miner (no installation needed), choose the server location that is the closest to your location, run built-in benchmark and enter your Bitcoin wallet address where you want to get your coins sent at – and you are ready to start mining and maximizing your profit.
Note: .NET Framework 2.0 or higher and Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2013 is required. No additional installations should be needed if you use Windows 7 or later. However, if you encounter any issues when starting application (application would fail to start or errors/warnings about missing DLL files are displayed) you should download and install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2013 (vcredist_x64.exe) (after installation a reboot might be required).
WARNING: Due to specific requirements of the supporting back-end program “sgminer”, you can not run NiceHash Miner Legacy through Windows RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) if you are using AMD GPUs. If you still wish to use remote access to your computer while running NiceHash Miner Legacy we suggest you to use TeamViewer: https://www.teamviewer.com.
Where is the profit coming from?
As a back-end NiceHash Miner Legacy relies on the NiceHash.com service. By running NiceHash Miner Legacy you’re essentially selling the hashing power of your CPUs & GPUs to hashing power buyers. Those are using the hashing power to mine various cryptocurrency coins and support decentralized blockchain networks – similar to cloud computing – only that by running NiceHash Miner Legacy you’re actually being a provider for the cryptocurrency mining hashing power. You are being part of a global compute power network, empowering decentralized digital currencies.
How to run NiceHash Miner Legacy only when profitability is high enough?
Profitability of mining can go up and down that may be unprofitable to mine especially places with high electricity cost. By using the “MinimumProfit” settings, NiceHashMinerLegacy will stop mining if the current profits are below the minimum amount (in USD). This will help you mine during “profitable” times only.
Click ‘Settings’ button. NiceHash Miner Legacy will be relaunched with the ability to modify configs. Alternatively, you can manually modify \configs\General.json for general settings and \configs\benchmark_XXX.json (XXX is your device UUID) files for device benchmark settings (close NiceHash Miner Legacy first).
Added algorithm CryptoNightV8
Updated Miner Cast XMR to version v1.5.0
Updated miner XMR-Stak to version 2.5.0
