If you have a Linux CUDA compute machine available we highly recommend using nvidia-docker. Installing different CUDA versions for Zcash mining and deep learning frameworks and managing versions can be painful. Using nvidia-docker you do not have to worry about that.
We’ll be starting the miner using a simple text file that tells the operating system to launch the mining program. It also allows the configuration of settings when EWBF starts. These files can be created an edited with any text editor. On the Windows platform, the correct file extension is .bat. On Linux, it is .cmd.
The following configuration of mining machines are suitable for virtual currency based on Equihash Algorithm: Zcash(ZEC), Zencash(ZEN), Bitcoin Gold(BTG), Komodo(KMD). Click on the name or login to minethecoin.com to view the current earnings. The mining machines earnings unit is Sol/s based on Equihash Algorithm.
You can mine it to an exchange or to hardware wallet like Ledger Nano S. amd Trezor. In this guide, we have mentioned all about the setting process of Nvidia EWBF Miner. You should know how to set and use it up. Mining process can be very profitable for you if you have any AMD card.
Sure, it’s easy. Set the Trezor up as per its documentation, making sure to accurately record and securely store the seed phrase as your top priority. Of course, you must also remember / record your PIN.
Not Tech Savvy? No problem – we’ve got live support on our 800 number available Monday-Friday 9am to 5pm to help keep you mining. Got a problem that we’re not able to coach you through over the phone? We’ve got you covered – Freedom Miner has a remote desktop application built in and with a couple of clicks you can authorize one of our engineers to access your rig and make the repair remotely.
Hash (Rate) A hash is the output of a hash function and, as it relates to Bitcoin, the Hash Rate is the speed at which a compute is completing an operation in the Bitcoin code. A higher hash rate is better when mining as it increases your opportunity of finding the next block and receiving the reward.

The following explanation is about how to mine Zcash (very profitable currently at the moment as of writing this article) in a pool called miningpoolhub. It is possible to mine many other coins through this pool, but you need to download other mining software to do so.
6. It is recommended that you install applications such as MSI Afterburner in order to control the card’s fan. In its default mode, the power is low and it allows the card to reach a temperature of 70-80 degrees Celcius (normal when playing occasionally but not healthy when it comes to a machine running 24-hours a day).
This brief guide is focused on how to mine Zcash with Nvidia GPUs with either the Windows or Linux operating system. Zcash (ZEC), which utilizes the Equihash algorithm, has lingered near the top of the charts for Nvidia mining profits. It’s also traded on multiple exchanges making it easy to exchange for other cryptocurrencies.
Below is an example of a batch file that we use on one of our Windows-based mining rigs. Everything is contained in a single line in the .bat file. That single line specifies the program to be run (miner) and a few settings that customize the miner’s activity. Finally, and most importantly, one of Zcash wallet addresses is specified so mined Zcash goes to the right place. Here’s the .bat file that we are currently using to start mining. Scroll to see all of it’s contents if necessary.
You will also need a Zcash wallet address either from a Zcash wallet you installed and run on your own PC, or a Zcash “Deposit” address from an exchange. I would recommend learning how to install run your own wallet unless you are only going to mine with a few cards and plan to exchange the coins right away. Several of the large exchanges support Zcash so you can obtain a wallet address from one such as Kraken, Poloniex, or Bittrex to name just a few.

Currently the NiceHash EQM Zcash miner is the fastest ZEC miner out there for Nvidia GPUs with the latest release bringing up to almost 50% increase in performance for most Nvidia GPUs. Everything would have been perfect if you could use the miner for other Zcash pools, but the EQM miner is still only supporting the NiceHash service, so you cannot mine ZEC with it, just sell your Zcash hashrate and get paid for it in Bitcoin. The recently released EWBF CUDA Zcash Miner is probably the fastest ZEC miner for Nvidia GPUs that is available for Windows that you can use on other pools for mining Zcash directly, though it is slower than the latest EQM miner release and that one also comes with 2% dev fee (no fee on the NiceHash miner, but only locked to their service).
Zcash is a fork of Bitcoin protocol, a currency that brings some major privacy improvements to its clients. A unique zero-knowledge proving technology makes it possible to shield some transaction details from prying eyes, like the sender, receiver and transaction amount. The currency has a strong developers and investors team. 10% of all Zcash tokens to ever be mined are allocated for the employees and shareholders, which is a strong stimulus for them to take good care of the network and ensure its further development and propagation.
lolMiner-mnx is a new miner for Mining MinexCoin (MNX) or any other coin that uses the Equihash 96/5 algorithm. Do note that the this is not the same algorithm used by ZCash (ZEC), there it is Equihash 200/9, so this miner is not compatible for mining traditional Equihash coins. The lolMiner-mnx is a closed source OpenCL miner being developed from scratch, so it is not based on existing opensource code. Currently it is available as 64-bit binary releases for both Linux and Windows, although it uses OpenCL it should compatible with pretty much any GPU including Intel and Nvidia and not only AMD.
Ok, maintenant on va s’attaquer au vif du sujet ! dans ce vrai premier tutoriel, on va voir comment miner sur l’algorithme equihash avec un GPU Nvidia. Dans une première partie nous verrons la configuration du mineur et dans une seconde partie, nous verrons comment optimiser le mining (overclock).
Zcash, a privacy centered cryptocurrency, made a mark in the mining scene by use of its ‘Equihash’ Proof of Work mining algorithm. The algorithm distinguishes itself from others with its focus on memory. In short, to mine Zcash, you’ll likely need more memory than what you’d need for other cryptocurrencies. But don’t worry, Zcash’s whopping $350+ USD trading value gives you enough incentive to get started.
Zcash mining is very simple and it is good news for beginners now they need not to download full Zcash block chain. They need not to manage clunky command line miners with manual instructions. If you are a beginner you can go for Zcash mining directly.
* The nheqminer is available with hardcoded pools from nicehash, suprnova and other mining pools supporting Zcash, so make sure you download the correct version for the pool you are going to be mining at.
–pec (optional) (this last optional parameter is telling the miner to run in performance reporting mode and will periodically display your overall hash/watt ration. It takes no variables and is more of an on/off flag as it defaults to off without this parameter being set)
So get mining, folks! And for the less knowledgable I can warmly recommend cloud mining. But make sure you choose a reputable one that has been around a while. I just chose Genesis Mining based on research and they got good discounts every now and then, like right now there is a coupon code you can grab: 809fKo
Hey Charlie, OK, I expect you’re checking that out on the South African Bitmart.co.za site which sells miners and other crypto gear? It’s their name for 6x 1080 GPUs in a re-assembled rig… So sure, it’ll be good for mining zCash, as that’s its intended purpose after all and the 1080 GPU is a good miner. That said, electricity in SA has become pretty expensive and Bitmart’s prices are fairly steep. Their setup goes for R88k but I see that a single GT 1080 (basic model, not the Ti) goes for about R10k on Evetech: https://www.evetech.co.za/PC-Components/buy-nvidia-geforce-gtx-graphics-cards-47.aspx You should check which… Read more »
I have 1080 TI FE and instead of doing 8 USD/day – now am getting 3 USD/day with nicehash! doesn’t worth it’s effort working for now but i will keep it on for a while and will keep on watching. Hopefully!!
For those who may be unfamiliar, Pascal is the code name for Nvidia’s latest micro-architecture which includes all GeForce 10 (10xx) series cards, such as the GTX 1050, GTX 1060, GTX 1070, GTX 1080, the Ti variants as well as Titian X and Xp cards. So basically the miner is optimized for Nvidia 10 series cards, but should still work with most Nvidia cards that have at least 1 GB of on-board memory and Compute 2.0 or higher capabilities.
The other software I will be using in this guide recommend is MSI’s Afterburner, which the latest version can be found on the MSI site here. The version of Afterburner I used for the guide is 184.108.40.20667.
Starting with Genesis Mining who have once more upgraded the Zcash cloud mining hashrate for their existing customers by another 25%. This means that everyone that has already purchased Zcash cloud mining hashrate from them got a nice boost in performance and amount of mined ZEC for free. Furthermore, new customers purchasing Zcash cloud mining hashrate will also get a boost in the hashrate they purchase, however the mining for new contracts purchased at the moment will start on December 1st and not immediately, so pretty much after the slow start for the mining ends.
I have put together a few videos that you may find helpful below. If your looking for a good written step-by-step tutorial I recommend this one. Building a good GPU rig will also give you the ability to mine other crypto-currencies like Ethereum.
Several months ago, we tried Zcash mining in Docker and even published Docker containers for CPU mining. Although we have CUDA enabled Monero mining containers, they performed well, but not significantly better than CPU mining. When we built a new image with Pascal GPUs we found that NVIDIA GPUs can keep up profitability in-line with using AMD GPUs to mine Zcash or Monero.
