  • Best mining program on Windows?
    2 projects | /r/MoneroMining | 30 Jun 2023
    Xmrig and use a pool that isn't one of the top three. If you want a have more of a challenge then try the p2pool with xmrig. https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig/releases/tag/v6.19.3
  • Over 110k BAN has been distributed to BanRXers!
    2 projects | /r/banano | 22 Jun 2023
    Regarding how much you can trust BanRX, all of the mining software used is fully open source on GitHub, with a commonly used one (XMrig) having over 7.6k stars on the repository. We also have a community Discord server for all of the apps in the BananoPlanet ecosystem, including our faucet! You can join the BananoPlanet Discord server at https://bananoplanet.cc/discord.
  • How do I know if I'm actually mining Monero correctly and everything is alright?

    Downloaded and extracted https://xmrig.com/. The Linux CPU only one.
  • Mining Monero
    2 projects | /r/CryptoCurrency | 21 May 2023
    Monero is mined with CPU, and the best software for this is XMRig. You will need to join a mining pool to mine Monero.

    That's funny, because I don't see it.... https://xmrig.com/download Or https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig/releases
  • Looking to learn
    4 projects | /r/MoneroMining | 11 May 2023
    Download xmrig, config it to point to the pool minexmr2.com, wait for a while to check your hashrate on the pool's web-ui dashboard.
  • Remote Server Compromised
    7 projects | /r/selfhosted | 6 Apr 2023
    Now, it had been almost 10 days since I set that up, but 2 days ago a reverse shell script was executed via selenium to gain remote access to my server, and the attacker installed the xmrig crypto miner along with a script that monitors that xm/xmrig is still running.
  • Momero Mining with GPU
    2 projects | /r/MoneroMining | 4 Apr 2023
    You will need XMRig and XMRig-CUDA plugin to mine on NVIDIA GPUs. You'll need to set "enabled": true, in cuda section of config.json for XMRig. But you'll be disappointed by GPU hashrates.
