Features

Mining Algorithm

miniZ supports Equihash <125,4>, <144,5>, <150,5>, <150,5,3>, <192,7>,<210,9>,  and <96,5> mining:

  • Bitcoin Gold (BTG)
  • BitcoinZ (BTCZ)
  • ANONymous (ANON)
  • SnowGem (XSG)
  • Bithereum (BTH)
  • BZEdge (BZE)
  • LitecoinZ (LTZ)
  • Bitcoin RM (BCRM)
  • SafeCoin (SAFE)
  • Zero (ZER)
  • Genesis (GENX)
  • Vidulum (VDL)
  • ZeroClassic (ZERC)
  • Arrow (ARW)
  • Ycash (YEC)
  • Minexcoin (MNX)
  • Beam (BEAM)
  • Grimm (GRIMM)
  • Aion (AION)
  • ZelCash (ZEL)

However, support for other Equihash algos (other set values for the parameters n,k) is expected to follow. This might take some time though.

Performance

GPUs

Although miniZ was not tested on all available GPUs, it is expected to run on all Kepler, Maxwell, Pascal, and Turing architectures. If experiencing any trouble with any of these GPUs, do leave your comment here for support.

miniZ Equihash 144,5 and 96,5 requires almost 2GB memory to work, but because Windows driver always uses a lot of GPU memory, the 2GB GPUs may run slower on Windows than on Linux.
miniZ Equihash 192,7 requires 2.7GB memory to work.

Requirements

  • NVIDIA 375.26 driver or later, for version compiled with cuda 8.0 (Linux).
  • NVIDIA 376.51 driver or later, for version compiled with cuda 8.0 (Windows).
  • NVIDIA 410.48 driver or later, for version compiled with cuda 10.0 (Linux).
  • NVIDIA 411.31 driver or later, for version compiled with cuda 10.0 (Windows).
