MacMiner 1.5.62 report

MacOS High Sierra 10.13.3, GTX 1060 6G, Intel Core i7 7700. All tests were done with Nicehash servers. In all 4 tests the miner does not appear in Nicehash dashboard.

CPU miner (Cryptonight):
Doesn't shows hashrate and doesn't submit shares (it does shows mining)

GPU Miner (Lyra2Re2, Neoscrypt):
Shows hashrate but doesn't get accepted or rejected shares.

  • The GPU issues aren't going to be solved with the existing GPU miner, however on that front I have ordered a 1050 so I can test against it when compiling cudaminer which will be added in a future version of MacMiner. Until that time nvidia card support is only a happy coincidence.

    How many threads are you using in CPU miner and what hash rate is each thread getting? If you are mining fast enough for that not to be the issue it must be an issue with nicehash, which is a pain in the ass pool because they use a proprietary miner and sometimes requires special setup on the miner or modded miner versions.

  • Keccak use to be the only algrothim that works with Nicehash. but since around a week ago there isn’t any more orders, so yeah... have tested all the other algrothims but none is working at the moment ^^||

  • @Clement Tang What GPU are you using? You should at the very least be able to use SHA256, scrypt and scrypt adaptive-n.

  • @Lumikor I've compiled ccminer but it's not as straightforward to use as most miners so please do me a favour and give it a shot, first

    Please install the CUDA toolkit 9.1 from here:

    Download this MacMiner with the ccminer binary included:

    Let me know whether you have homebrew installed already and if so whether you have llvm installed

    Try running the ccminer binary in the Terminal like so:

    cd /Applications/
    ./ccminer -a algorithm -o stratum+tcp://pool.address:1234 -u username -p password

    If you get a warning about llvm or libomp please let me know, and if you don't mind, try installing homebrew from here:

    then running
    brew install llvm

    then try running ccminer as above again.
