PhoenixMiner is the fastest miner with the lowest fees.
The effective mining speed of Ethereum is 3-5% higher due to completely different miner code – much less invalid and obsolete shares, higher load on the GPU, optimized OpenCL code, optimized assembler cores.
Supports AMD and nVidia cards (including mixed mining rigs). It works under Windows x64 and Linux x64.
A watchdog timer periodically checks to see if any of the GPUs freeze, and if so, restarts the miner. Supports memory timings for AMD / NVIDIA cards. Use the parameter
-straps to activate it.
Step 1: Download the miner (download PhoenixMiner button above)
Once the download is complete, extract the contents of
In the folder containing the program, you must create or edit a file with the extension
.bat. This can be done in any text editor (for example, in Notepad). When saving a file, it is important to select All Files as the file type rather than
.txt. Otherwise, you will have
.bat.txt at the end of the file name and the miner will not be able to open this file. Your file
.bat (let’s say it’s called 1_Ehereum-nanopool.bat) should contain the following text (step 2):
Step 2: Enter or edit the following command:
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0 setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 PhoenixMiner.exe -epool eth-eu2.nanopool.org:9999 -worker YOUR_RIG_NAME -wal YOUR_WALLET ADDRESS -pass x
Step 3: Enter your wallet addresses
WALLET_ADDRESS – enter YOUR Ethereum wallet address (this is how PhoenixMiner Miner knows where to mine your ETH) FARM_NAME – you can choose any name (for example, test), but do not exaggerate: it should be a maximum of 32 characters, contain only letters and numbers (no special characters such as $% “*; @).
Be sure to replace the pool and wallet address with the one you use in all files.
Step 4: start mining
Double click on your Bat file to run the program. The miner will launch, execute commands
setx to set environment variables, initialize each of your GPUs, create a DAG file on each of your GPUs, and start hashing. Let it run for about 20 seconds and then press “s” to display the hash rate.
