Sgminer-gm is a New Fork of sgminer with Ethereum Support from Genesis Mining

9 Sep


Today, Genesis Mining announced the release of sgminer-gm – an AMD GPU miner with support for the Ethereum network. Developed in cooperation with Wolf0, sgminer-gm incorporates the best of cgminer and sgminer in one easy-to-use package, and adds a long-awaited feature: stratum support for Ethereum (ETH), though you will be able to use the miner for other crypto currencies using the Ethash algorithm as well. All other Ethereum miners so far were custom and not based on the cgminer/sgminer functionality and now you will be able to work with the familiar feature set that sgminer comes with, including the API available for integrating support in other software for monitoring of your mining rigs for example.

Sgminer-gm can be compiled from the official Github repository (source); Windows executables are available for 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems; and a compiled Ubuntu binary. A sample configuration is provided for users, just make sure you set the mining pool and wallet/worker address in the sgminer.conf file before running the miner! Feel free to give the miner a try and then also report if you are having any trouble running it or what hashrate are you getting mining Ethereum and on what AMD GPUs.

Founded in 2013, Hong-Kong based Genesis Mining has become a world leader in providing hosted hashpower for cryptocurrency. In November 2015, a nationwide awareness campaign was launched in San Francisco, Chicago, Miami and LA by Genesis Mining, which highlighted the benefits of using Bitcoin. In March 2016, the company launched the Logos Fund: a private fund dedicated to investing into a wide range of Bitcoin-related businesses.

Further information about the company, its contracts and pricing can be obtained from their official website…

same speed like genoil, use stratum proxy, wait 2-3 minutes for hashrate, hw errors show on wrong worksize, using 2 threads, worksize 96,144,192 and 256 show no HW, but only for short test on 280x

Much better under Linux than ethminer via stratum proxy or genoil. Been running it for well over a month. Displayed hashrates are fairytales on all miners. Pool stats are the only way to benchmark these things. Genoil doesn’t recover from hardware issues, this does.
