Features of 1'st generation of nanominer:
We are glad to present you the newest version of nanominer by nanopool.
Nanominer is a versatile tool for mining cryptocurrencies which are based on Ethash, Ubqhash, Cuckaroo29, and RandomHash (PascalCoin) algorithms. This tool is suitable for both novice and professional users. Fast, reliable, efficient.
Our competitive advantages:
- AMD, Nvidia or/and CPU - it's up to you, nanominer supports both types of GPU for mining Ethash, Ubqhash, Cuckaroo29 and CPU for RandomHash.
- Fastest RandomHash on CPU - the performance of PASC is highest on most CPUs.
- Dual, triple or quad mining - you can set up nanominer to mine RandomHash on CPU and Ethash, Ubqhash, Cuckaroo29 on GPUs without losing performance. Moreover, you can set all of these algorithms simultaneously on different GPUs.
- Fastest Cuckaroo29 on AMD - we have added best implementation of Grin's Cuckaroo29 algorithm for 8+ GB AMD GPUs with lowest possible CPU usage.
- Cross platform: nanominer will bring you profit regardless of OS. The supported platforms are Windows and Linux.
- Built-in overclocking - we have added options to overclock coreClocks and memClocks for Nvidia cards on Windows.
- Stable and autonomous: nanominer is able to control the state of video cards and, in case of hardware error (for instance: hashrate drop or GPU hang), it can restart itself or reboot entire system.
- Advanced statistics: aside from hashrate, nanominer will inform you about GPUs temperature, power consumption*, average hashrate for each algorithm and much more.
- Technical support 24/7: Our support service will answer all your questions promptly and with a pleasure.
- No SmartScreen alert: we are going through a Microsoft security check, and Windows Defender does not recognize nanominer as a threat (does not remove or interfere with its work). Windows version of nanominer is digitally signed, so it cannot contain viruses.
- Effective mining: high performance and efficient utilization of electricity.
- Customization flexibility: nanominer is ready to operate, you just need to indicate a wallet. However, if you are experienced user, then additional parameters will help you to adjust the miner according to your own understanding of best efficiency.
- Fixed issue with incorrect Ethash pool protocol auto-detection on some connections.
- Removed pool.pascalpool.org from list of default Pascal pools.
- Added Cortex support for AMD Radeon RX 570 16 GB cards. Hashrate is about 1 G/s which gives about 1.3$-1.4$ a day right now.
- +30% RandomHash2 (Pascal) optimizations for some of CPUs. Tested on AMD Threadripper, works on some Intel CPUs too.
- Fixes issue #63 with incorrect configuration introduced in 1.7.2.
- The only difference with 1.7.1 is x4 - x5 performance improvements for RandomHash2 algo (Pascal)
- x4 - x5 performance improvements for RandomHash2 algo (Pascal).
- UPD: please don't use this build due to issue #63 Fixed version will be released soon.
- Added Ethash support for AMD Navi 12 and Navi 14 GPUs including AMD RX 5500.
- Fixed issue with Floating point exception at startup observer on some CPUs.
- Removed CryptoNight family of algorithms since Monero uses RandomX.
- RandomHash algorithm is synonym to RandomHash2 now since there are no RandomHash(1) coins any more.
- Fixed setting up RandomX algorithm for testing purposes. Please check our Github for the config examples.
- Optimized Ethash memory for Nvidia cards.
- Added SSL connections for both Nanopool ETH and ETC pools and are used by default if no pools specified.
- Ubiqpool.io pools are used by default now if no UBQ pools provided.
- RandomHash2 algorithm for Pascal implemented. DevFee increased from 3% to 5% for both RandomHash and RandomHash2 to support RandomHash2 development.
- RandomX algorithm implemented on CPU. Will be able to mine Monero on CPU in dual mode with some GPU coin after Monero hardfork.
- Cuckarood29 performance improved up to 24% on AMD and Nvidia.
- Updated node protocol supported for QuarkChain. Wallet can now be set up in miner's configuration file, not only configured on node itself. Public full nodes are used by default.
- Example config files for popular coins were added to distribution.
- Fixed issue with Nvidia devices not shown on nanominer -d output.
- Print message in log if current Nvidia driver is too old for nanominer to detect Nvidia GPUs.
- Fixed Cuckarood29 issue on AMD: low difficulty shares are not sent anymore.
- Added Ethash binaries for AMD Radeon RX 5700 and AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT cards.
- Added support for Grin's upcoming PoW hardfork Cuckarood29 algorithm.
- Added support for Nvidia 6+ GB cards on Cuckaroo29/Cuckarood29 algorithms.
- RandomHash (PascalCoin) performance improved.
- Built-in amdmemtweak can run on Ubuntu 16.04 now.
- Fixed SSL connection with miningpoolhub.
- New memTweak option to control AMD GPU memory timings on Ethash algorithm, that gives up to 6%-10% performance increase compared to stock settings.

- Added block acceptance time for QuarkChain.
- Support any shard IDs for QuarkChain, including null for root chain mining.
- QuarkChain shard option was renamed to shardid to avoid confusion.
- Added farmRecheck option for QuakrChain.
- Do not show block accepted time for getwork protocol because it was calculated wrong. Will be added in some future update.
- Fixed some stability issues.
- Fixed issue with devices parameter ignored for Ethash.

- Added QuarkChain node support for mining Ethash algorithm.
- Added command line launching scripts for those users who need to run the miner using single command line with arguments.

- Extended Ethash support on Nvidia 3Gb cards. We are now the only one known miner that can support up to 242 epoch (best on Linux) with full speed. Next epochs will work too but performance degradation is possible. To make performance better you can try using full-speed PCI-e connections for 3 Gb devices.
- Fixed some issues with miner re-connection to pools.
- Fixed floating bug with enormous reported hashrate on AMD Ethash.
1% of total mining time for Ethash, Ubqhash and CryptoNight algorithms (72 seconds per 2 hours);
