>>> Examples <<<

Example for Heavycoin Mining on with a single gpu in your system
ccminer -t 1 -a heavy -o stratum+tcp:// -u
<<username.worker>> -p <<workerpassword>> -v 8

Example for Heavycoin Mining on with a dual gpu in your system
ccminer -t 2 -a heavy -o stratum+tcp:// -u <<WALLET>> -p x
-v 8

Example for Fuguecoin solo-mining with 4 gpu's in your system and a Fuguecoin-
wallet running on localhost
ccminer -q -s 1 -t 4 -a fugue256 -o http://localhost:9089/ -u <<myusername>> -p

Example for Fuguecoin pool mining on with all your GPUs
ccminer -q -a fugue256 -o stratum+tcp:// -u

Example for Groestlcoin solo mining

ccminer -q -s 1 -a groestl -o -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD

Example for Boolberry

ccminer -a wildkeccak -o stratum+tcp:// -u tpruvot.donate
-p x -k -l 64x360

Example for Scrypt-N (2048) on Nicehash

ccminer -a scrypt:10 -o stratum+tcp:// -u
3EujYFcoBzWvpUEvbe3obEG95mBuU88QBD -p x

For solo-mining you typically use -o where xxxx represents

the rpcport number specified in your wallet's .conf file and you have to pass the
same username
and password with -O (or -u -p) as specified in the wallet config.

The wallet must also be started with the -server option and/or with the server=1
flag in the .conf file

>>> Configuration files <<<

With the -c parameter you can use a json config file to set your prefered settings.
An example is present in source tree, and is also the default one when no command
line parameters are given.
This allow you to run the miner without batch/script.

>>> API and Monitoring <<<

With the -b parameter you can open your ccminer to your network, use -b if required.
On windows, setting will ask firewall permissions on the first launch. Its

Default API feature is only enabled for localhost queries by default, on port 4068.

You can test this api on linux with "telnet <miner-ip> 4068" and type "help" to
list the commands.
Default api format is delimited text. If required a php json wrapper is present in
api/ folder.

I plan to add a json format later, if requests are formatted in json too..

>>> Additional Notes <<<

This code should be running on nVidia GPUs ranging from compute capability
3.0 up to compute capability 5.2. Support for Compute 2.0 has been dropped
so we can more efficiently implement new algorithms using the latest hardware

Thanks to tsiv and to Bombadil for the contributions!

June 14th 2014 released Killer Groestl quad version which I deem
sufficiently hard to port over to AMD. It isn't
the fastest option for Compute 3.5 and 5.0 cards,
but it is still much faster than the table based

May 10th 2014 added X11, but without the bells & whistles
(no killer Groestl, SIMD hash quite slow still)

May 6th 2014 this adds the quark and animecoin algorithms.

May 3rd 2014 add the MjollnirCoin hash algorithm for the upcomin
MjollnirCoin relaunch.

Add the -f (--diff) option to adjust the difficulty

e.g. for the erebor Dwarfpool myr-gr SaffronCoin pool.
Use -f 256 there.

May 1st 2014 adapt the Jackpot algorithms to changes made by the
coin developers. We keep our unique nVidia advantage
because we have a way to break up the divergence.
NOTE: Jackpot Hash now requires Compute 3.0 or later.

April, 27 2014 this release adds Myriad-Groestl and Jackpot Coin.

we apply an optimization to Jackpot that turns this
into a Keccak-only CUDA coin ;) Jackpot is tested with
solo--mining only at the moment.

March, 27 2014 Heavycoin exchange rates soar, and as a result this coin
gets some love: We greatly optimized the Hefty1 kernel
for speed. Expect some hefty gains, especially on 750Ti's!

By popular demand, we added the -d option as known from


different compute capability builds are now provided until

we figure out how to pack everything into a single executable
in a Windows build.

March, 24 2014 fixed Groestl pool support

went back to Compute 1.x for kernel by

default after numerous reports of ccminer v0.2/v0.3
not working with HeavyCoin for some people.

March, 23 2014 added Groestlcoin support. stratum status unknown

(the only pool is currently down for fixing issues)

March, 21 2014 use of shared memory in Fugue256 kernel boosts hash rates
on Fermi and Maxwell devices. Kepler may suffer slightly

Fixed Stratum for Fuguecoin. Tested on dwarfpool.

March, 18 2014 initial release.
