XMR-STAK-RX v1.0.5: Added support for mining Kevacoin (KEVA), Safex Cash (SFX)


The XMR-STAK-RX miner has been updated to version 1.0.5, providing support for two cryptographic projects using a variation of the RandomX CPU mining algorithm – Kevacoin (KEVA) and Safex Cash (SFX). Kevacoin (KEVA) uses RandomKEVA, and Safex Cash (SFX) uses RandomSFX algorithms, respectively, although both are based on the RandomX algorithm as the basis and demonstrate better performance on the latest AMD Ryzen processors than Intel processors. Alternative miners with support for RandomX and RandomKEVA RandomSFX are SRBMiner-MULTI and XMRig, although keep in mind that the XMR-STAK-RX miner does not have a development fee like the other two. Does the absence of a development fee in the processor of the miner XMR-STAK-RX RandomX mean the best choice, and you should compare what performance you get on your own hardware with the mining algorithm.

XMR-STAK-RX – A program for mining coins on the RandomX algorithm and its various modifications (randomx_loki, randomx_wow). It works both on AMD & Nvidia video cards (GPUs) and on processors (CPUs).

Supports Algorithms:

  • RandomX
  • RandomWOW
  • RandomXL

Release notes

This release adds mining support of 2 new currencies. Their aliases are keva and safex respectively. If you are planning to mine a coin that has same algo: use randomx_keva and randomx_safex in pools.txt or in “currency to mine” setup parameter. Xmr-Stak-RX 1.0.5 is also now up to date with newest xmrig.

Since GPUs have no sense in RandomX mining compared to CPUs – we disabled it in Xmr-Stak-RX build. If you wish to mine GPU coins (Like Ryo with Cryptonight-GPU): use Xmr-Stak build.

Pre-compiled Binaries

The pre-compiled Windows binaries uses OpenSource Software hwloc, OpenSSl and microhttpd: https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr-stak-dep/releases/tag/v3
The pre-compiled Linux binaries uses OpenSource Software

Configure and Launch XMR-Stak-RX

To run the program you need either a .bat file or a configuration file. Set up the program through a batch file.

  1. xmr-stak-rx.exe – name of the program to run
  2. x mr-eu.dwarfpool.com:8050 – address of the pool and port
  3. 44tLjmXrQ …. RsceGJCRS3Jxkn – specify the wallet.
  4. 44tLjmXrQ …. RsceGJCRS3Jxkn – specify the wallet.

example bat file:

xmr-stak-rx.exe -o xmr-eu.dwarfpool.com:8050 -u 44tLjmXrQNrWJ5NBsEj2R77ZBEgDa3fEe9GLpSf2FRmhexPvfYDUAB7EXX1Hdb3aMQ9FLqdJ56yaAhiXoRsceGJCRS3Jxkn.rig1 -p x

Q: Why guys that say they want decentralisation want everyone to use one miner?
A: Because just like privacy it is just an empty marketing slogan, with no relation to what community leaders actually want.

Q: Why is my “friend” saying that I shouldn’t be using free Xmr-Stak-RX or faster RagerX, but instead – go through extra steps to get free xmrig?
A: This is cryptocurreny world. Everyone is looking out for themselves. What your “friend” is trying to do is advance his social position by giving you bad financial advice. Think with your wallet, don’t put yourself at a financial disadvantage to please a guy you have never seen.

Q: Are you just stealing from xmrig?
A: It is a popular Monero propaganda line. Xmr-stak has been around for much longer than xmrig. They copied xmr-stak code. We didn’t complain – that’s the point of free and open source software. Xmrig developer actively pushed free xmr-stak versions – and when we made xmr-stak-rx free, he decided it has a virus 😂. If you feel that this kind of guy deserves your financial support, we are nice enough to put the link on the front page.

Necessary prerequisites for Windows
