Theres a few more things we need to do before we can start running the miner. First of all, we need to add this string of code to the config.txt, especially on 1-2GB video cards. This will ensure everything runs smoothly. Add this code to your config.txt file:
ZCash is an anonymous cryptocurrency that uses zk-snarks to ensure that all the information regarding user transactions is safely encrypted, while still verifiable by miners that can ensure no double-spending has taken place using zero knowledge proofs.
This is a list of the most popular Zcash Mining software for each platform, some of this software contains a built-in developers fee. I try to keep this list up to date as I can, if there is a broken link or missing software please drop me an email.
The good news is that getting started with Zcash mining is very simple. You don’t need to download the full Zcash blockchain or manage clunky command-line miners with manual instructions; you can mine directly to an exchange or to a hardware wallet such as Trezor or Ledger Nano S. Of course, you should always do your due diligence to ensure your coins will be properly supported before sending them anywhere.
You can mine Zcash with CPU. If you are about to use nicehash miner it can work for both GPU and CPU. You should use different miners for GPU and CPU. It is as the claymore miner is fast and works only for CPU. You can download the nicehash miner and extract the files within the zip folder.
A: The miner uses adaptive intensity and tries to use the maximum intensity value, with the help of the –intensity option you can set a limit on the maximum intensity, this will slightly reduce gpu usage and performance. Allowed values 1 – 64. You can set different values for each cards –intensity 64 64 64 64
By default the EWBF miner should extract to a folder named “Zec miner 0.3.3b” unless you changed it. I would recommend placing this folder somewhere easy to get to, such as the root of your C drive, your Desktop, or somewhere you can easily locate it. For this guide I extracted it to: “C:\Zec miner 0.3.3b“. Open up the Zec miner 0.3.3b folder and you should see files similar those those below:
Zcash is an open source cryptocurrency that focuses on the privacy element. This cryptocurrency is mineable utilizing the CPU, and/or GPU. It is a popular currency to mine with nVidia GPU’s as the algorithm hashes better on these GPU’s vs. their AMD competitors. The GTX series is the most popular for mining Zcash.
Interesting blog. I was about to post a similair post. Buy and hold for the upcoming 3 years and the blockchain market will find it’s way. I was researching a way to do better investment analysis on the current cryptos. I was wondering if anyone of you uses: https://www.coincheckup.com Since I use this site I make so much less basic investment mistakes.
Transaction Fees This is a small, optional fee attached to a Bitcoin transfer. Upon the completion of all 21 million bitcoins being created, these fees will provide the reward to encourage miner to continue mining and verifying the network transactions.

–pass z (the actual value of this parameter is usually ignored by pools but oftentimes required by either the pool, mining program, or both. Can be set to something like “X” or “Z” unless your pool requires a specific password).
Another cloud mining service provider that has been available for quite some time already as well – HashFlare has also announced their plans for offering cloud mining hashrate for Zcash (ZEC). They have already started the presale of mining contracts with a price of 4.20 USD per 0.1 H/s with the launch of mining planned to start before 21.11.16, so you will be able to catch some of the slow start mining period as well. Each of their Zcash cloud mining contracts will last for 1 year (from activation) and will not have any additional fees as everything is apparently included in the price.
Zcash mining is getting pretty popular but solo mining can get pretty lonely. Come test the waters on a Zcash pool! All you have to do is follow this guide! We are going to use the NiceHash open source miner, which allows us to mine for BTC or for ZCash. Since we want to keep our newly mined ZEC, we’re using the second option.
You will now need to choose a pool in which to mine at. Most pools now use your wallet address as an account, with payments sent automatically to your wallet address once you reach the pool’s payment threshold. There are still some exceptions to this, such as the Suprnova pool which still requires you to register an separate account and input your wallet address separately.
Zcash offers total payment confidentiality, while still maintaining a decentralized network using a public blockchain. Unlike Bitcoin, Zcash’s private transactions hide the sender, recipient, and value of transactions on the blockchain. Only those with the correct view key can see the contents. Users have complete control and can opt-in to provide others with their view key at their discretion.
The next step is to download the EWBF Miner. Only download miners from the official threads in BitcoinTalk. If you scroll down, you’ll see a couple of different download options. We’re going to use the Mega download link.
The blockchain allows the transfer of funds in a decentralized manner, while security and fraud-prevention are carried out by encryption, hence the name crypto, as cryptography is the discipline of encryption. Encrypting and verifying a transaction requires work. Computers which do this kind of work, which is basically solving a mathematical puzzle, get to write the next block in the chain, and are rewarded with coins for it – this is practically the mining operation. The more miners a network has, the stronger it is and the faster and more secure it is.
Advantages: It does seem to be a bit less stressful on hardware — power usage is a bit lower. You can watch YouTube HD videos without chopping while Bminer works, and it will dial down hash rate to accommodate this. DSTM and EBWF usually make watching videos or working on spreadsheets uncomfortable to impossible.
As you can see, factory overclocked cards to help add slightly more performance in Zcash mining. A direct result of improved hash rate is higher earnings per day. Note, this analysis was done on 20 May 2017 and it will have changed in the 48 hours until it was published, but these are good general guidelines:
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.

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.
Today the blockchains of Bitcoin and Ethereum are so heavily loaded, that even participation in a mining pool has become unprofitable, as the amount of resources invested in mining (electricity bills) usually exceeds the return. For this reason, the mining guide we are presenting today is a Zcash mining guide.
I am currently using 1 MSI 1080ti seahawk x, 2 PNY 1080 ti FE and 2 ASUS 1080 ti Turbo. Definetly recomend the MSI and PNY, The ASUS turbo not too much, dont have backplate and not good for UV OC, If you are going to buy 1080 ti, this article have all the details all all 1080 ti models:
The dstm’s ZCash Nvidia miner has been available for a while and we’ve been keeping a track, but it was only for Linux operating systems – not anymore. With the latest version 0.5.2 the miner is also released for Windows in a 64-bit binary and not anymore available only for Linux miners. The miner is closed source one and comes with a 2% developer fee included. It support Nvidia-based GPUs with Compute Capability 5.0 or later, meaning it is for Maxwell or the newer Pascal video cards. There is support available for stratum as well as for NiceHash’s extranonce, so it can be used there as well without problems for selling Equihash hashrate.
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.
You can go through the list of Zcash mining software that is easily available online. Some of them contain a built in developers fee. First of all you need to set up your local Zcash node and configure it and then start mining.
We all love getting consistent feedback for our After all, there’s nothing more frustrating than mining into the void. That’s why mining pools are so popular for miners nowadays. Instead of waiting to receive rewards on your own (which takes very long because of how unlikely it is), just join a pool to receive a fair proportion in the worth of your hash contribution to the network. Mining pools break up the rewards proportionally between all participants, which is why it’s the preferred way to mine for most lower-hash miners.
Explore the world of mining right on your iOS device. You don’t need fancy expensive equipment to do mining. You already own a device powerful enough to mine. Zcash (ZEC) is unique because unlike Bitcoin which needs specialized ASIC hardware to mine, ZEC can still be mined using your CPU albeit slowly.
You then need to change “-u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password” to reflect your own account. Eg, “-u Steve.StevesWorker -p StevesWorkerPassword” Then go to “File => Save as” and save the file as “RunMe.bat” in the same folder as minerd. You are now ready to mine, double click on “RunMe.bat” to start mining. If you want, you can create additional workers with usernames and passwords of your choice here
