All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
The software bfgminer 4.0.0 has been released and now the latest version does come with official support for Gridseed-based ASIC devices built-in, among a lot of other new features and improvements. The miner is intended for mining Scrypt and SHA-256 crypto currencies and the biggest advantage is the support for many ASIC miners, though most of these are still for Bitcoin mining and not for Scrypt. If used for Gridseed ASIC mining the advantage here is that you don’t need to replace the virtual USB to COM drivers with WinUSB or to send as parameters the COM ports for the ASIC devices to the miner – they will be autodetected. Below you can download the compiled windows binaries for the miner (32 and 64-bit) and be sure to check the example BAT files for running on Gridseed ASICs or just for Scrypt mining with a GPU. You can also compile bfgminer from source if you are using other operating system for example.
