lolMiner: How to Set Up and Download

lolMiner is a multiple algorithm mining software featuring solvers for Ethash, Etchash, Beam and the most widely GPU mined variants of Cuckoo Cycle and Equihash.

The software is based on OpenCL and focuses on mining with AMD graphic cards, but also has Nvidia codes to support mixed configurations. Key selling points for lolMiner are a wide GPU compatibility, honest hash rate reporting and a responsive online support. lolMiner is available for Windows and Linux.

lolMiner Supported Algorithms

Below is the list of algorithms supported by the lolMiner 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.

lolMiner 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 lolMiner. 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 lolMiner, feel free to ask for advice in our Telegram chat.

lolMiner 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 lolMiner 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.

--tls enable mining through TLS/SSL. Use --tls on to mine with SSL. Please keep in mind that the pool address with SSL is usually different from the pool address without SSL. For example, is 2Miners Ethereum pool with SSL and is 2Miners Ethereum pool without SSL.

--devices launches mining software only on certain GPUs. Indicate target GPUs separated with a comma after --devices. The first GPU is indexed as 0. For example, GPUs in a rig of six graphics cards are numbered from 0 to 5. --devices 0,1,2,3,5 launches mining software on all GPUs except for the fifth (indexed as 4). --devices can also launch GPUs of a certain brand (only Nvidia or only AMD). For example, --devices nvidia launches mining software only on Nvidia GPUs.

--keepfree sets the amount of GPU memory in MB that can't be used for mining. The default is 5MB for Linux and 56MB for Windows.

--tstart sets the min GPU temperature in °C. For example, --tstart 30.

--tstop sets the max GPU temperature in °C. For example, --tstop 70.

--log manages the log file. --log on — log file is created (default), --log off — log file is not created.
