Development will resume

Exams are over, expect a new update to EzMiner which allows Linux & Mac mining.

Please do tell if you have any ideas in mind.

How to stop your anti-virus from blocking your cryptocurrency miner.

This is just a quick tutorial on how to stop your AntiVirus from blocking your crypto-miner, as well as why it blocks it as well as how to restore it if it has already been blocked or quarantined.

Why does this happen?

Cryptocurrency miners like electroneum, monero or bitcoin miners make use your your electricity and computing hardware to produce the currency, this both slows your system down and uses lots of power. Recently some malicious individuals and organisations have been secretly installing cryptominers onto user’s machines without their permission and using their hardware and power to mine coins that go to the creator of the malicious cryptominer. And just a few months ago there has been a script many websites have started using that use your web browser to mine on your device! This is why it’s incredibly important that your AntiVirus blocks any miner it detects as not many people mine and if a miner is detected 9 times out of 10 it’s not the users’.

How do I stop this?

Of course, if you’re choosing to mine crypto then this isn’t a problem, it’s perfectly safe! Your anti-virus does not know this of course, and will try to block your own miner anyway. To allow your miner it is different for every single anti-virus. I will focus on Windows Defender but it’s roughly the same for every single anti-virus. I WANT TO CLARIFY THAT YOU SHOULD ONLY USE OPEN SOURCE AND FREE MINERS, CLOSED SOURCE SOFTWARE COULD BE MALICIOUS AND YOU MAY UNWITTINGLY ALLOW IT INTO YOUR SYSTEM. MinerGate is a big nono! It steals your hashrate.

  1. Open your antivirus and navigate to the virus detection section.
  2. Step 1 to stop miner from being blocked
  3.  Navigate to the menu where you can add exclusions to your AV.
  4. step 2 and find the exclusions option
  5.  Add the folder your miner is in to the list of exclusions!
  6. step 3 add the folder to your exclusions

Thank you for reading and let me know if you have any questions!

 

 

EzMiner 1.1.0 Tungsten Release and Download

Hello everyone!
More updates, more bugfixes and more features.

For the newcomers:

This is a super easy to use multi-coin miner front end that is better than individual miners in that it allows you to mine from a variety of different pools and custom pools, as well as allowing for more configurations.

It is also better than a command-line only miner or pre-configured miner in that it has automatic error correction, directly reports pool fees and payouts within the miner window, and does not force you to use a specific miner or pool.

To use it, just start ‘EzMiner.exe’ from your zip folder, extract it all, enter your address and start mining!

Also it has come to my attention that an EzMiner already exists, I’ll be changing the name soon.

THIS UPDATE BREAKS EXISTING CONFIGURATIONS REMOVE AUTO.MCF & DO NOT USE OLD .MCF FILES

Changelog from 1.1.0:

  • *Added default option to fetch prices server-side.
    *Added support for allium algo.
    *Added support for garlicoin mining.
    *Bugfixes
    Fixed updater again
    *MOTD is now dynamic and downloaded from the website instead of static for each version
    *Increased number of widgets from 4 to 6
    *Selected coin is now indicated programmatically, coin icons have to only be drawn once at startup rather than each time when clicked.
    *Miner output now also indicates when GUI functions change.
    *Themed coins

More feature updates will follow soon!
Thank you.

Please report any issues you may have on github or on this google forms.

If you are a pool owner please apply to have your pool listed in the miner here.

Here is the changelog from 0.2.1 of the original EzMiner (But to be honest this one is basically built from the ground up and doesn’t share anything besides the name with 0.2.1) to this version.

  1. Brand new GUI
  2. Automatic scraping through ez_ticker for the value of cryptocurrencies (max 4 at the moment)
  3. Automatic hashrate reporting within the miner itself for ALL pools (does not use external APIs for hashrate)
  4. Live pool list that can be updated in realtime without updating the miner itself.
  5. Check ETN for nanopool within the miner (spacepool support coming soon)
  6. Check pool status before you begin mining. (WALLET ADDRESS REQUIRED FOR THIS)
  7. Automatic error reporting (if your miner fails to start it tells you exactly why and how to fix it)
  8. Supports multiple coins! This is something the original one couldn’t do.

I will talk about each point in more detail after the downloads and screenshots.

A small discord server to suggest/report things directly

It’s been a long time since the last update to EzMiner but exams and moving home leaves little time for anything else.
I’ve created a discord server so that people can suggest possible features or report any issues instantly and have my respond much more quickly than email or reddit (I monitor these every few days whilst the server will notify me instantaneously)

Link here: https://discord.gg/K3AaE6R

EzMiner 1.1.0 coming within the next two weeks, hopefully next week.

Thanks for waiting.

EzMiner 1.0.0 Tungsten Release and Download

Hello everyone!
After a few months of combined school work, procrastinating, and software development,
I’m proud to release the EzMiner AIO Miner and hopefully also a lot more features and utilities.
It might seem a little bare bones at the moment and that’s because I decided to release it early as I
just couldn’t wait. However rest assured that the features present work and they work well.

However, coming in the next few days will be nearly daily updates adding features and fixing bugs,
you can report them in the website comments, github page or reddit page and I’ll be happy to fix them.

There are a lot of new things that I have added in, going for a rush of features over application stability but if I went for both then it could have taken over another month for me to push this out.

Please report any issues you may have on github or on this google forms.

If you are a pool owner please apply to have your pool listed in the miner here.

Electroneum Ez CPU GPU Miner Version 0.2.1

This is a bugfix version and you will not receive an update notification. The next evolution of this miner will be fully featured and built to mine many different cryptocurrencies along with a whole new set of features.

To move your settings over from 0.2.0, just save your configuration and load it into the new version.

For the uninitiated:

This is a super easy to use electroneum miner front end that is better than the official beginner miner in that it allows you to mine from a variety of different pools and custom pools, as well as allowing for more configurations. Not only this but since it’s built specifically for ease of use and for mining electroneum it’s probably your best bet for mining etn overall.

It is also better than a command-line only miner or pre-configured miner in that it has automatic error correction, directly reports pool fees and payouts within the miner window, and does not force you to use a specific miner or pool. It also lets you run multiple miners at nce and gives you info on the wallet address being used, the pool being mined on for each individual miner.

To use it, just start ‘Electroneum Easy CPU or GPU Miner.exe’ from your zip folder, extract it all, enter your address and start mining!

Features:

  • *NEW* Run multiple miners at once and manage them from just one window!
  • *NEW* Save and load different configurations for different gpus or pools. no need to re-enter info!
  • *NEW* OPTIONAL Automatic updating notifications, so you don’t need to keep checking for new updates here.
  • *NEW* Add your own custom pools to the drop down list so you don’t have to re-enter them every time.
  • Supports 5 miners out of the box with no configuration necessary.
  • Allows more config than the beginner miner.
  • Tells you a pool’s minimum payout and fees within the miner.
  • Notifies you of any errors in your config and tries to correct them.
  • Auto-tune feature that automatically tunes and fixes your configuration.
  • Saves your last configuration as .bat and .config files if you want to launch the miners directly.
  • Let’s you pick a custom pool.
  • Has a built in helpdesk if you are having trouble.
  • Easily check your earned ETN at the click of a button.

Writing down the feature list every time is not the best thing to do, a permanent page may go up but I’m afraid it could mess up the layout of the website.

Electroneum Ez CPU & GPU Miner Version 0.2.1

Source Code at GitHub

Changelog from 0.2.0:

  1. Added an ‘Extreme’ performance profile for the xmr-stak-nvidia miner.
  2. Bugfixes across the board.
  3. Added some more default pools to custom_url.conf

If you would like to disable auto updating simply open updaterperm.txt and change the y to an n.

I think that for newcomers and experienced miners alike, this is the definitive go-to solution for Windows mining.

As for anything else I’m working on: currently I’m working on a Epson remote print desktop application that you can use to print from anywhere in the world to your epson printer if you’re away or are having trouble installing drivers etc. It makes use of the email print functionality of the newer models.

Website appearance update

I’ve spent the past few days trying to decide on a theme to use that wasn’t broken on Mobile, as a lot of my traffic comes form there (although I only have desktop applications hosted on there at the moment.

I’ve finally decided on this one since it is the most resource-lite and was actually very hard to find because every theme used over-the-top visual effects and animations, the only downside is that it does appear a bit bland, although I’ll be trying to find a way to fix that.

If anyone has any issues with this theme please let me know immediately so I can remedy it.

In addition, if anyone has any suggestions please be sure to let me know.

EDIT: I changed it back and manually customised the theme to look a bit better on mobile, things like the <title> tag on the homepage are still broken though. The old new theme was too early 2000s for people’s tastes.

Also I found that it said the title and tagline twice annoying so I’ve changed it.

Electroneum Ez CPU GPU Pool Miner Version 0.2.0

UPDATE: NEW VERSION RELEASED! v0.2.1

Developing this final version was a headache since when i built the first version i didn’t intend to update it. In any case this time for sure this will be the final version with any new features. It is getting too convoluted to keep adding stuff.

Thank you for /r/electroneum and all of your amazing support & feedback, this is an application truly crafted by the community. Let me know on reddit or in the comments here if you want to see a Linux port. If not then my work on the miner is now finished aside from bugfixes. If you do then I can port a version over to Ubuntu Linux and its derivatives.

This is a super easy to use electroneum miner front end that is better than the official beginner miner in that it allows you to mine from a variety of different pools and custom pools, as well as allowing for more configurations. Not only this but since it’s built specifically for ease of use and for mining electroneum it’s probably your best bet for mining etn overall.
