Even the world’s top ten have risen above 50% in one day. So now mining looks all fresh and exciting. To help with it, there is miniZ – a miner for Equihash 144.5, 192.7 and 96.5. Let’s take a look at the program, its performance and supported coins.
What is MiniZ Miner?
miniZ is a miner for Equihash 144.5 (Zhash), Equihash 192.7 and Equihash 96.5. It works with Nvidia graphics cards.
The program is compatible with Windows and Linux, and also supports most mining pools. The developer fee is 2%. By the way, Funakoshi 144.5 Cuda Miner charges four times less – 0.5%.
What to Mine on miniZ
The program works with three Equihash algorithms: 144.5, 192.7 and 96.5. It supports 15 cryptocurrencies. They are:
- Bitcoin Gold (BTG);
- BitcoinZ (BTCZ);
- ZelCash (ZEL);
- Anonymous (ANON);
- SnowGem (XSG);
- Bithereum (BTH);
- BZEdge (BZE);
- LitecoinZ (LTZ);
- Bitcoin RM (BCRM);
- SafeCoin (SAFE);
- Zero (ZER);
- Genesis (GENX);
- Vidulum (VDL);
- ZeroClassic (ZERC);
- Minexcoin (MNX).
miniZ System Requirements
The program requires not less than 2 GB of memory – it is enough for Equihash 144.5 and 96.5. For these algorithms, you can even use Nvidia GTX 1050 2GB. According to the developers, operation speed on Windows is lower than on Linux because of the Windows system driver that uses more resources.
For Equihash 192.7 the minimum requirement is 2.7 GB of memory.
And here are the driver requirements by version:
Cuda 8.0 (Linux) compilation – NVIDIA 375.26 or higher; Cuda 8.0 (Windows) compilation – NVIDIA 376.51 or higher; Cuda 10.0 (Linux) compilation – NVIDIA 410.48 or higher; Cuda 10.0 (Windows) compilation – NVIDIA 411.31 or higher; Cuda 9.2 (Windows) compilation – NVIDIA 398.26 or higher.

Where to Download miniZ
How to Setup miniZ
The setup for miniZ is the same as for other miners. Edit the bat file, enter the required parameters and start working. The bat file for mining Bitcoin Gold on 2Miners looks as follows.
miniZ.exe --url YOUR_ADDRESS.RIG_ID@btg.2miners.com:4040 --log --gpu-line --extra
A quick reminder:
Instead of YOUR_ADDRESS, you should enter your actual wallet address.
For example, GJjz2Du9BoJQ3CPcoyVTHUJZSj62i1693U.
Instead of RIG_ID, you should enter the name of your rig. You are allowed to use no more than 32 Latin letters, numbers and symbols “-” and “_”.
For example, rig-1.
After you edit and launch the file, you will see the following.
A bit later you can visit Miners Online tab.
And then Payouts tab.
