BLOC GUI Miner

BLOC GUI Miner is a beautiful, easy to use, Graphical User interface for mining multiple cryptocurrencies based on cryptonote.

It is aimed at getting people that have never tried mining before with a focus on accessibility, security and simplicity.

BLOC GUI Miner support two very popular miner backends: xmr-stak and xmrig

BLOC GUI Miner comes with XMR-STAK 2.7.1 and XMRIG 2.8.3 already built-in, including configuration files for CPU and GPU mining in most of the cases.

If you want to learn about cryptocurrencies, mining is a great place to start!

Start mining today and get rewarded in your favorite cryptocurrency.

Note: Some antivirus packages detect cryptocurrency miners as malware and will remove the miner as soon as it's started. In order for the BLOC GUI miner to function, you'll need to exclude the miner from being scanned by your antivirus software.

Supported Cryptocurrency

Everyone can add their own cryptocurrency to the BLOC GUI Miner as long as it is supported by XMR-STAK and XMRIG. In the same time everyone can add/edit a mining pool into the BLOC GUI Miner.

Curently we support :

If you would like to contribute to this project by adding or editing a mining pool but also to add a new cryptonote currency please checkout the instructions available.

Guides

Make sure you have a wallet

You need to create your wallet before start mining.

We offer different possibility for you to create a BLOC wallet once you start the BLOC GUI Miner and follow the installation process.

If you would like to use the BLOC GUI Miner to mine other cryptocurrency than BLOC please prepare your wallet address to use for mining.

I have my own miner

You are welcome to use your own xmr-stak or xmrig binaries as long as it is the same version compatible with the BLOC GUI Miner available on this page.

Use the standard procedure to compile your favorite miner and place the binaries file inside the miner folder next to the BLOC GUI Miner application. Once you are ready simply double click the BLOC GUI Miner icon to launch the application and start mining.

For the mining stats to display correctly you need to enable the API for each miner by doing the following:

Compiling XMR-STAK with option: -DMICROHTTPD_ENABLE=ON

Ensure you have the following in you config.txt file

"httpd_port" : 16000,

Compiling XMRIG with option: by default -DWITH_HTTPD=ON should be enabled.

Ensure you have the following in you config.json file

"api":{
  "port":16000,
  "access-token":null,
  "worker-id":null
}

Mining Tuning Intensity and threads configuration

XMR-STAK

xmr-stak gives too many options for tuning to get the best results out of your hardware. By default the miner creates config file for CPU, NVIDIA and AMD GPU. You can edit the values within these text files and see which works best for your mining hardware. Change the value of intensity, work-size, threads and blocks. You can add more GPUs and also lower the power mode of your CPU.

XMR-Stak will save your configuration in config.txt in the same directory from which it was first run.

Your configuration for pools(algorithm to mine, address, port etc) will be saved in pools.txt The configuration of the device it mines(CPU/AMD/NVIDIA) will be saved in cpu.txt, amd.txt or nvidia.txt, respectively.

For more information on Tuning and configuring your hardware in XMR-stak we suggest you to read this guide

XMRIG

Your configuration for pools(algorithm to mine, address, port etc) will be saved in config.json inside the miner folder. Use config.xmrig.com to generate, edit and compare configurations so you can edit your own files inside the miner folder.

Default Developer Donation

XMR-STAK

By default, the XMR-STAK will donate 2% of the hashpower (2 minutes in 100 minutes) to XMR-stak developers pool. If you want to change that, edit donate-level.hpp before you build the binaries.

XMRRIG

By default, the XMRIG will donate 5% of the hashpower (5 minutes in 100 minutes) to XMRIG developers pool. If you want to change that, edit config.json before you start mining.

The BLOC GUI Miner did not change this settings as we are using the binaries from the official XMRSTAK and XMRIG GitHub rep except for macOS that was built by us and we recommend to keep the donation level as it is to support the developers of both miners.
