A Quick Look at the NiceHash Miner Alpha

25 May

NиceHash is preparing an update for their NiceHash Miner software to a new major version 2 and they are working on completely redesigning the interface of the tool for monitoring and choosing the highest profit for users on their hashrate renting/buying service. The software benchmarks all your CPU and GPU hardware to get an idea on what hashrate in various algorithms it is capable of delivering and based on that information switches between different algorithms to maximize your mining profit.

The NiceHash Miner software is essentially a GUI making mining easier for people that are not so into crypto currency, but still want to make some profit from it without having to get into too much details. The software uses popular mining software for the various supported algorithms and is often updated in order to provide the best possible performance for its users.

The new version 2 of NiceHash Miner is still in Alpha and available for people to try it out and report bugs and issues they discover, but soon it will most likely be also available to the general public as well.

With the new version things should become even easier for regular users such as gamers that already have a decent video card and a higher-end processor that can be utilized to mine when not used for gaming. The software might also be a good choice for regular users that haven’t yet started building multi-GPU mining rigs, provided that they do have a decent CPU and/or GPU available or even a few of them lying around and not doing much.

are nicehash miner still download miner packages with viruses?

It does not download miners with viruses, since it is a frontend software it uses as backend common miners like ccminer, claymore etc. and antivirus software of course detects and warns as potentially dangerous software as it does if you manually download the same miner software.

abd several miners get picked up by anti-virus because those miners have been embedded in malware in the past and became associated with that malware. The mining software is the victim because their source code was available and a malware writer took it and used it for malicious purposes. Then when their malware was profiled for the anti-virus the embedded miner code was also identified as being malicious, even though by itself the miner code is still just miner code. It’s similar to how Toyota was under suspicion for supporting terrorists because so many Toyota trucks are seen being driven by ISIS fighters. The reality is that Toyota trucks are just very common in the areas the ISIS fighters operate in so of course that is the most common thing for them to drive. That doesn’t mean Toyota supplied the trucks directly or that they promote terrorism.

The problem with many miners is that they get installed through malware or by friends/family who want to make use of your cpu/gpu without your knowledge.
Which led to the antivirus/malware community to redflag all used programs to be a trojan, this is pure because these misbehaving people have used secret installs to infect schools/college/ universities and even in my work as IT manager i detected several times that people ( even own personal) used heavy workstations for their own mining purposes.
Do you understand how much financial damage has been made by this misbehaving people.
We are talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars of extra costs on electricity costs.
In the company where i was asked to find a problem with the student computers, i detected that 1215 computers from 1750 student computers had been infected by a miner group who hack into the system and place a secret miner on all open machines. I made a few traps for them so i could use these to get them to justice which succeeded.
But many normal people have no clue why their pc constant makes such a noise when the pc they have is infected by friends/family yes i keep repeating this because most pc’s i cleaned turned out to be used by son of daughter using mom and dad pc’s to mine crypto coins. Some of these victims was telling me that they where already talking about the very high power bills since a certain moment. Which often is for me a lead to find some hidden/secret miners.
