Usage

Edit the included example-config.json to suit your needs (pool address, number of threads, etc), then run:

powhasher -c your-config.json

While the hasher is running, press Enter to get statistics.

What is it?

This is a simple CLI miner for modern x86 CPUs, powered by the yellowsun CryptoNight hash implementation and the cn-stratum pool client. It once hosted unusually fast Cn/Cnv1 core loops I wrote in assembly, but the current Cnv2 backend is pure Rust based on stdsimd intrinsics.

Supported platforms

If you'd like to use this on a platform that isn't Linux, all it needs is a hugepage mmap implementation for your weird choice of operating systems. PRs for the yellowsun project are welcome!
