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.

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 (, you NEED Bitcoin address for this

  2. mining Zcash directly and being paid in Zcash (, you NEED Zcash address for this

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.
