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++.
Warning: Miners are listed here for convenience. Non-official miners have not been vetted. Use at your own risk. All fees are to the developers of the miners.
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_WALLET.YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL":
- YOUR_WALLET - your valid Monero address.
- YOUR_WORKER_NAME - 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.
Important: XMRig automatic algorithm detection does not work with Nanopool. You need to install the algorithm manually.
You need to open config.json file and setup parameter "rx/0" in "algo" line like it shown on screenshot bellow:
Double click the start.bat on Windows or binary file on Linux to launch the miner.
Xmrig miner takes additional 1-5% fee (depends on donate-level option).
