TT-Miner 3.2.0 (Nvidia GPU miner) — program for video cards of the Nvidia family. Supports three hashing algorithms. It is mainly used for mining on the ProgPOW algorithm. It takes the miner about 4-5 minutes until he shows a stable hash rate.
DevFee is 1% for all algorithms.
Changes in the new version:
– support for Kadena (Blake2S) Pool / Solo – SSL connection support – command -cid / install Kadena ChainID cid accepts one or more identifiers. – command -tbr / set the time between two job requests. The default value is 8, which is 800 ms. for efficiency – it’s better to set 900 ms.
You may need the Visual C ++ Redistributable Package for Visual Studio 2017 (64-bit) (download from the official Microsoft website)
Features of TT-Miner:
Manage farms from a single computer
Video Card Performance Monitoring
Hashrate / sec performance rating
Switching a farm or just one video card to other pools or another coin in a few seconds
Low memory and processor power
Supports CUDA 9.2 and CUDA 10.0
To quickly start cryptocurrency mining with TT-Miner, you need:
Unzip it to any convenient place (the miner is downloaded as a zip archive and does not require installation)
Change wallet to your
After downloading the program, you will find ready-made examples of customized .bat files for mining and instructions in Russian.
For quick launch, just open the file with the .bat extension in any text editor and replace the wallet with your own. Below we will tell you how to do this, as well as how to more finely tune the program to your needs.
So, let’s start editing the batch file – we need to change the wallet address and configure some other parameters for your equipment. To do this, right-click on the .bat file and select the “Edit” item.
A text document opens with command line arguments. Consider what kind of teams are contained in our batch file.
Example bat file:
TT-Miner.exe -A BLAKE2S -coin kda -luck -log -logpool -P YOUR_WALLET.YOUR_WORKER@kda-us.icemining.ca:3700
TT-Miner.exe -A BLAKE2S -coin kda -luck -log -logpool -P https://YOUR_WALLET@NODE_SERVER:NODE_PORT
Detailed bat file settings
TradeTec-MinerCmd.exe – indicate in the batch file which program we want to run. This file should be in the same folder as our batch file
PROGPOW-100 – specify the coin algorithm that we are going to mine
iN5h4sGcf1BD7R1mgaqkeGWnDvAubzyEKg after the construction -P stratum + tcp: // specify the address of our digital wallet. You can take it on the exchange where the coin is traded, or install a cold wallet
rig1 – after we entered the wallet address, put a dot and indicate the name of our farm. You can use any. This is necessary to track statistics on the pool.
bci-eu.coinblockers.comafter – the @ sign we indicate the address of the pool.
3910 specifying the address of the pool, put a colon and indicate the port of the pool
—list-devices – the command will display all available mining devices
the command will display all available mining devices
So we set up the program for the first launch. How to run it? The cryptocurrency mining process is launched by double-clicking on the created or edited batch file (file with the .bat extension). So, we launch and look at what the program console writes to us.

Consider all the possible commands supported by the program.
All command line arguments
Add new pool
-P specify information for connecting to the pool in the format: -P scheme: // user [.workername / username] [: password] @hostname: portscheme:
stratum uses the stratum mining protocol
user: username or wallet address
workername: the name you want to assign to this farm, or the username for the login on the pool
password: password (if necessary)
hostname: hostname or IP of the pool
port: port used to connect to the pool
-A ALGONAME choose the necessary algorithm for mining. There are no default values!
ETHASH-100 Ethash Algorithm for CUDA 10.0
ETHASH-92 Ethash Algorithm for CUDA 9.2
UBQHASH-100 Ubqhash algorithm for CUDA 10.0
UBQHASH-92 Unqhash Algorithm for CUDA 9.2
PROGPOW-100 ProgPoW algorithm for CUDA 10.0
PROGPOW-92 ProgPoW algorithm for CUDA 9.2
*Note. If two parameters are specified, separated by commas, then you need to write only one of the parameters. These are synonyms.
-cbs, —cuda-block-size INT – Select the CUDA block size to use. Default is 512
-cgs, —cuda-grid-size INT – Select CUDA grid size when using. Default is 1024
-d, —cuda-devices INT – Select CUDA devices to use. By default, all devices found are used.
API monitoring and control options:
—api-bind IP[:port] – includes API monitoring programs for IP addresses. If you did not specify a port, then port 3333 is used by default
—api-password – provides access to the API with this password only
-h, —help – show help and supported options
-V, —version – show program version
-v INT – select the amount of information displayed 0 – only errors and important information 1 – add warnings 2 – add useful information (default) 3 – add debug output
-U, -cuda – mining using CUDA devices
-list-devices – shows detected CUDA devices
-N INT INT – determines how the miner creates the Nonce parameter (a number that can be used once in cryptography)
The first value determines the way:
0 – do not reset; the miner will continue to increase the one-time number (Nonce) and it will never be reset
1 – reset the one-time number to zero
2 – Always create random nonces
3 – reset to a random one-time number for each new job – this is the default value
4 – reset to random nonce for each new task and after a timeout if no solution was found
the second value determines the timeout at the 10th second, use as in this example:
-N 0 0 never reset a one-time number
-N 4 75 reset to a random one-time number for any new job or if no new solution is found in 7.5 seconds
-logpool – creates a log file in the ‘Logs \ Miner’ subfolder containing pool connection information
Configure TT-Miner via GUI
The program can also be configured through the graphical interface of the miner.
Add new pool
When launching TradeTec-MinerControl.exe, you first need to configure the pools. Launch TradeTec-MinerControl.exe and activate the menu “Edit” -> “Add new pool …”. A new dialog box will appear in which you can enter all the necessary information, such as server / port and username / password or wallet address.
Click Add Pool and it will appear in the Available Pools window.
Here are some suggestions on what to enter in the field so that the new coin / pool configuration starts working.
Name: a unique name for your new coin / pool configuration.
Algorithm: Choose the algorithm you need to mine the coin. At the moment, you can choose Ethash, ProgPoW and Ubqhash (later, apparently, there will also be MTP).
Server: enter the connection information: server and the required port to connect to your pool. The stratum + tcp prefix is not required because TradeTec uses an algorithm to automatically detect the protocol used.
Wallet/User: in most cases, you enter the address of your wallet. If your pool first requires a login, then you need to enter your username for this pool.
Password: can be left blank for most pools. If your pool requires a login (suprnova), then you need to enter a password for your worker.
Worker override: In most cases, you can leave it blank. If you enter a worker name here, it will replace the “farm name”. In this case, all farms will use this working name. If you are using suprnova, it is recommended that you enter the name of the worker that you use in the working suprnova configuration.
Thus, a configuration example for ETC on ethermine.org will look like this:
Name: My config BCI Suprnova (POOL)
Wallet / User: 'your worker on the supernova pool'
Password: 'your worker password on the pool'
Worker override: 'worker name on the pool'
To simplify the task, the miner will now extract the necessary information from the string of a regular pool and server. If you insert this a line in the server field “stratum + tcp: //solo-bci.altpool.pro: 2242”, miner will extract the information it needs: server address and port number. it will also delete stratum service information.
Add video cards
The next step is to add your video cards. Go to “Edit” -> “Add new rig … ” A dialog will now appear to add an IP / port pair. Enter information to allow the software to connect to the farm. If you run Miner and MinerControl in the same window, then you can use the feedback address (127.0.0.1) and the default port is 8010, if this is acceptable for you. Otherwise, enter the IP farm.
You should now run TradeTec-Miner.exe software. You will see a window with information. Let’s go from top to bottom:
Pool information: name, server / port job ID, and performance data
GPU information: type, memory, overclocking, temperature, fans, cuda version and performance data related to the selected GPU
Setting for MinerControl: Selected IP interface, port and button allowing to establish a connection between MinerControl and Miner. You can also choose whether this default interface or not.
Miner settings: host name, worker name by by default, the duration of mining and a button to start. This allows you manage the miner even without MinerControl software. You can also configure a parameter by which the program can start mining, if it starts.
The last section shows a list of installed and available cuda devices with some information: model, pool, used for mining, the current mining speed for this devices dispatched and rejected balls and last dispatch time balls.
If you enable the management interface (click “Start listen”), MinerControl must connect to the miner. You can now continue the configuration using the MinerControl software.
GPU Pool Assignment
If MinerControl and Miner are connected, you can see the list of available GPUs in the Management Software.
In the “GPUs installed on selected Rig” window, you will see a list of your video cards. You can also see that they are not assigned pools. Just click on the field labeled “Unassigned – not used” and a list with your available pool configurations will open. Select the pool you want to use for your GPU.
Now you can start the mining process if you right-click on the farm in the “Available Rigs” window and perform “start mining” in the context menu.
You should see a miner reflecting your teams. Since ETHASH works with DAG files, it will take about 20 seconds until you see the process and speed of mining.
