    some troubles with pool mine-…

    ping too big (170 ms and higher) with miniz or red * in miner

    at the same time in other miners – ping 40-50 ping and all good

    but overall miniz is more stable

    • miniZ says:

      Hi joginvik, thank you for your feedback.

      The red star may be related to the personalization string, maybe it was not entered correctly.
      Can you specify which coin are you mining? And, if possible the command line you entered?

      Regarding the latency when the miner starts you see a higher latency time because of communication handshake. Also, the average time window was too big. This will be corrected in the next version.

      • joginvik says:

        about red* – it was my fault – was writen –pers snZelProof insted of –pers ZelProof

        about ping – good – This will be corrected in the next version.

        maybe it will be good to show some stats like in phoenixminer

        • miniZ says:

          Hi joginvik, what stats would you like to see?
          In the console, miniZ already shows detailed information per rig: submitted shares (accepted and invalid), instant speed (3min average) and long run speed (3h average); and detailed information per GPU: temperature and fan speed; share information, iterations/second, instant speed (3min) and long run speed (3h), power consumption, core and memory clocks, and efficiency.
          Telemetry adds some stats too, to both rig and each GPU.
          Maybe we can add something more, already for the next version, if you specify what you pretend.

    are you looking at supporting nicehash?

    • miniZ says:

      Hi ed,
      you can use miniZ on NiceHash:
      1. From here click ‘GPU or CPU‘, or ‘Rig farm‘.
      2. In ‘Select closest location‘ select Zhash. Then ‘Generate stratum‘.
      You get instructions to set the stratum+tcp address, username (your Bitcoin address) and password.
      3. Example usage: miniZ.exe --url [email protected]:3369 --pass x --pers auto --gpu-line
      4. Follow your miner by entering your BTC address @

      Hope that this helps.

    I can use your updated version v1.h to mine in Suprnova without problem but cannot use your
    v1.0i+ version because you pre filled the 2miners
    .on address inside the exe. And I can not delete or amend inside.
    Could you issue a new version without any specified mining pool as v.1h.

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Woris,
      we tested the version in various mining pools and there was no problem running the miner with them.
      Could you post here your command line?

    Hello miniZ,

    Love the miner, hoping you can shed some light.

    I have recently started running a full node Bitcoin Gold BTG and want to mine with my two rigs directly to it.

    I have opened port 8338 on my router and the node is successfully synced up and running smoothly. I have the ip address to where the server is located but having trouble connecting and mining.

    Check it out at – Just scroll down till you see the location in “Florence” and the carrier is Charter Communications.

    I have attempted to connect directly with the ip but I am not having any luck. Here is a copy of the .sh file I am running, btw, I am running Ubuntu 18.04 linux distro:

    ./miniZ –url [email protected]:8338 –cd 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

    I know this is a bit unusual but I would really appreciate any advice or help you have to offer.

    Thank You!

  5. Matthew Wagner says:

    Just as a follow up to my last message sent just less than an hour ago:

    here is the published live address information for the full node BTG I am running. I attached a link to my last message but thought I would follow with the actual information.
    Since 1 day ago /Bitcoin Gold:0.15.2/ (70016)
    America/Los_Angeles Charter Communications

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Matthew,
      thanks for the message. Unfortunately, miniZ can only mine to a mining pool.
      It would require many modifications to make it possible to mine directly to a node.
      We are sorry about this.

  6. Dark Oopa says:

    I tried to use miniZ on with –pers auto but the problem is it doesn’t change the pers on the fly.

    For example, I’m mining BTG from mmr to miningpoolhub and everything works. I get rented by someone mining other thing than BTG, the pool just receive invalid shares. If I restart the miner, it start to work. Then, the rental finish, so the rig goes back to mining pool hub on BTG and again, only invalid shares until I restart the miner.

    So the miner is able to mine different coins without any change in the config, but it doesn’t change on the fly, it needs to be restarted so it can’t be used with mining rig rental :/

    is there a solution? I use the 1.2l.


    • Dark Oopa says:

      equihash 144,5 algo

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Dark Oopa,

      we were checking and miningpoolhub does not support auto (when you specify --pers auto).
      If you mine to a pool that supports auto, then it should work. Let us know if you try this, just to be sure.
      At the moment this is the only workaround we can suggest, but we will address this issue and try to fix it for the next version (should be out next week).

      Thanks for the feedback. Quite relevant!

    Running on pool minermore with no problem

  8. Chris says: is not listed. They have a embedded link to your software on their site

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Chris,
      Thanks. Beam instructions (FAQ page) listed leafpool (and other Beam pools). However, this post was not updated.
      It is listed now on post too 🙂

  9. mindsignals says:

    beepool has an optional pplns designation to enable that instead of pps. However, I cannot find a way to specify it when using miniZ. Below are examples of my configuration for gminer and for miniZ, the only difference being that I am unable to specify pplns for miniZ, which prevents me from being able to use it instead of gminer.

    gminer: (note the @pplns immediately following the address)
    miner.exe –algo 150_5 –server –port 9507 –ssl 1 –devices 0 1 2 3 –user b88[email protected]pplns

    miniZ: (if I add the @pplns, it becomes part of the hostname, which is incorrect)
    miniZ.exe –oc2 –par 150,5 –url ssl://b88[email protected] –cuda-devices=0,1,2,3

    • miniZ says:

      Hi mindsignals,
      miniZ will not parse the url correctly because of the @ symbol. In this case you have to use the alternative syntax.

      miniZ.exe --oc2 --par=150,5 --user=b88[email protected]pplns --server=ssl:// --cuda-devices=0,1,2,3

      It should work fine like this, let us know how it goes.

    miner tested on without any issues. please add to list.

  11. nemosminer says: support

    • miniZ says:

      Hi nemosminer,
      we’re having a look.
      But could you elaborate? Are you having some trouble connecting to the pool?

      • nemosminer says:

        only equihash 125 zel, 192 and 144 have been working great. this seems to have been fixed for me in v1.5q3 beta im testing v1.5q4 beta atm it also seems to been handling connection drops timeouts better, than previous version, thankyou for improvments

        • miniZ says:

          Hi nemosminer,
          Let us know if connection drops persist.
          For example if they happen for minutes or just a few seconds, and how often they occur.
          Thanks a lot for the feedback!

    pool problem Coin Cash
    .\miniZ.exe –url=ssl://[email protected]:2002 –par=150,5,3
    timeout /t 5
    goto loop

  13. George says:

    Hi, I am a newbie but I managed for some time to mine several coins. I found your miner and I mined some beam. But the miner in several pools cannot connect like 2 miners saying that user is not authorized. I don’t understand what kind of authorization it is about since 2miners or others don’t have password. I really want to mine Zcash but it seems that your miner is not suitable? Please advice

    • miniZ says:

      Hi George,
      sorry for taking a bit longer to reply.

      miniZ is a equihash cuda miner, but you cannot mine Zcash with it, GPUs are not efficient to mine Zcash. However, it is suitable for Beam mining.

      Could you paste here your command line so that we can check if there is something off with it?

      This should work:
      miniZ.exe –url=ssl://[email protected]:5252 –log

      Thanks for your preference!

    I have a question about the latency? I’m using HiveOS and running miniz latest version mining ZEL at ZelLabs.
    The latency showing in miniz shows 900’s but if I ping the server from HiveOS I get the 100’s. Why does it go up so high running miniz?

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Terry,
      Thank you for your question.

      Latency is the time it takes for the request signal to travel to and return from the pool to the miner. This includes the time the pool takes to deal with data.

      Ping only tests/refers to speed of a signal sent to the pool ip address, it does not include any processing time. It is just the time a data packet takes to arrive to the destination.

      Ping is always lower than latency. In any case we will check this, 900 might be a bit high.
