Native Mac Miner Release v4 (new GPU BETA)

Can this build solo mine? I put in a zcash address but I need to enter in a server:port.

v4 released.

unlocking threads. you can now start on all cores incl. hyper threading. (4 core + ht = 8 instances)

Please be shure to watch the temps of your mac with e.g smcfancontrol.

Getting about 6.3 sols/s on my macbook air mid-2011 (core i5 something).

Any hope for a version that includes Mac AMD GPU mining (-od 0)?

In contact with @Genoil. We should have a working gpu mac miner next week. It's a hobby project for me so i do it in my spare time.

What about nVidia and CUDA for GPU Mining by macOS?

I understand! All of the rest of us hobbyists with fewer skills appreciate your work!

Am i correct that nicehash pays only in BTC?

Nope. You can also mine ZEC direct on nicehash.

  1. mining on equhash algoritm while being paid in Bitcoins (https://www.nicehash.com/index.jsp?p=gstarted#seller), you NEED Bitcoin address for this

  2. mining Zcash directly and being paid in Zcash (https://zcash.nicehash.com/getting_started), you NEED Zcash address for this

Thank you. Already found that it was dumb question. And finally managed to set up gui for wallet:)

There are no dumb q’s here :slight_smile: we are here to help each other. So no problem. Next version will detect if its btc or zec adress and instruct further.

After a while on flypool some of the miners are unavailable. But in miner everything seems to be ok. It happens both with console miner and gui.

See my OS X port of Zcash for an OS X full node, v1.0.2 is at:

I used this guide to set up wallet. Wallet seems to be working. Mac where i did all this set ups went offline after a while. On mac where i just used runed nheqminer from terminal everything works.
I use eu1-zcash.flypool.org:3333
