Mining Software Comparison

Bminer: How to Set Up and Download

Bminer supports multiple algorithms. Sadly, the hashrate isn’t one of the highest and it often ranks last in mining performance charts. The miner supports AMD and Nvidia and doesn’t usually have any operating issues.

Like many other miners, Bminer has decent developer’s support. The fee ranges from 0.65% to 2% depending on the mining algorithm.

Bminer Supported Algorithms

Below is the list of algorithms supported by the Bminer mining software. Each algorithm indicates the program fee, which is usually just a few percent. Software developers use it for their product support, enhancement, and development of new features. The fee works in such a way that every hour a program mines for a short period of time (usually less than a minute) to the developer’s wallet.

Bminer Sample Settings (bat file)

The mining software launches through the command line in Linux and through the bat file in Windows. Below are sample bat files for each cryptocurrency that you can mine with Bminer. Make sure to replace YOUR_ADDRESS with your own wallet address, and RIG_ID with your own rig name. You can name it however you like, but the name must contain only Latin letters and symbols “-” and “_”. The wallet must correspond to the cryptocurrency you are mining.

You can find additional settings for the mining program at the end of the page. If you have problems setting up Bminer, feel free to ask for advice in our Telegram chat.

Bminer Extra Settings

Sometimes you need to take additional steps to set up a mining program. For example, you may want to disconnect a GPU or set the GPU operating temperature limit. We prepared the list of the most popular Bminer settings. To use a setting, add it to the standard launch line indicated above. As a rule, you can’t control GPU overclocking through the mining program settings. You can find a detailed guide on GPU overclocking in this article.

stratum+ssl:// is for mining through SSL. To use SSL, replace the standard pool address prefix stratum+tcp:// with stratum+ssl://Please keep in mind that the pool address with SSL is usually different from the pool address without SSL. For example, stratum+ssl:// (2Miners Ethereum pool for mining through SSL).

-devices allows you to choose GPUs for mining. After -devices indicate target GPUs separating them with a comma. The first GPU is indexed as 0. For example, GPUs in a rig of six graphics cards are numbered from 0 to 5. If you add -devices 0,1,2,3,5, the mining software launches on all GPUs except for the fifth (indexed as 4).

-max-temperature sets the max temperature GPUs can mine at. When GPUs reach the indicated temperature, the mining software slows down mining to let GPUs cool down. For example, -max-temperature 75.

-nofee launches the mining software without the developer's fee, but degrades software optimization.

-logfile creates the log file and saves it to the drive. Indicate the exact path to the log file after the command. For example, -logfile c:\bminer.log.
