The RavenCoin (RVN) fork has been successfully executed and mining with GPUs is back once more with mining profitability of RVN the highest at the moment among GPU-mineable altcoins thanks to no significant change in the price. The hashrate is now about 5 times lower than before the fork, so most likely the presence of FPGAs and even maybe ASIC miners for the X16R algorithm is really significant. Anyway, apart from z-enemy and T-Rex miners for Nvidia there is a third option available now with X16Rv2 support. The new entry is the just released CryptoDredge v0.22.0 that now supports the X16Rv2 algorithm, like with other closed source Nvidia GPU miners, CryptoDredge also comes with a 1% dev fee for the X16RV2 algorithm. Our quick tests have shown that on GTX 1080 Ti the performance of CryptoDredge miner with X16Rv2 is not as high as on the current hashrate leader T-Rex… it is more like similar to that of z-enemy.

With the Ravencoin (RVN) fork to X16Rv2 right around the corner already we are starting to see updates to popular mining software adding support for the new algorithm the coin will be switching to. It has been a while since we have seen an update for the z-enemy miner (one of the most popular choices for X16R mining on Nvidia GPUs in the past), but here it is with the latest version 2.2 adding support for the X16Rv2 algorithm. The latest version also adds support for secure stratum+ssl connections and comes with some fixes as well regarding a GPU data error in JSON API and a PHI2 bug on CUDA 10.1.

The latest z-enemy version 2.2 is available for Nvidia CUDA 9.1, 9.2, 10.0 and 10.1 for 64-bit Windows versions as well as CUDA 9.1, CUDA 9.2 and CUDA 10 binaries for Linux (HiveOS, PiMP OS, EthOS & Ubuntu). Make sure that you have the respective recent video driver version installed for the CUDA version you want to use – 388+ for 9.1, 397+ for 9.2 and 411+ for CUDA 10.0 or the latest ones for CUDA 10.1. We remind you that the z-enemy is a closed source miner software, is available only as a binary release and that it contains a 1% developer fee built-in to support further software development.

Windows Downloads:

Download z-enemy 2.2 Linux CUDA 10.0

Here comes CryptoDredge 0.20.1 and it brings along support for a new algorithm – Argon2d (NIM) algorithm (Dumb mode only), as well as number of fixes and additional performance improvements for MTP and Argon2d. The major version 0.20.0 did not get an official binary release, apparently due to some issues that were addressed in the 0.20.1 that was just made available for both Linux and Windows. The Linux version now also includes a watchdog feature…

Do note that the CryptoDredge miner supports only Nvidia GPUs and is a closed source software that comes with 1% built-in developer fee for all supported algorithms, however the dev fee is 2% currently only for MTP mining (Zcoin), there are binaries available for both Windows and Linux (CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0).
