XMRig is a high performance Monero miner, with official support for Windows. Originally based on cpuminer-multi with heavy optimizations/rewrites and removing a lot of legacy code, since version 1.0.0 completely rewritten from scratch on C++.
Download The Miner here and extract the archive to any folder.
At first launch Xmrig will configure itself, you will just need to enter your data like wallet address etc.
To change configuration, open config.json file and replace the values "YOUR_XMR_ADDRESS.YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL":
- YOUR_XMR_ADDRESS - your valid Monero address.
- YOUR_WORKER - simple short worker name (like worker01). Optional.
- YOUR_EMAIL - your email address for notifications. Optional.
Since 11/30/2019 addresses with payment ID became invalid - you can't receive or send transaction with this address.
Double click the start.bat on Windows or binary file on Linux to launch the miner.
