JCE Cryptonote CPU Miner Welcome to the Fastest Cryptonote CPU Miner ever! Try the GPU Version (includes the CPU miner), the fastest CN-Heavy/XHV/Tube miner! You can download it from the Mega page here: Download JCE Miner Like all miners, JCE gets detected as a virus by most Antiviruses, including Windows Defender. But it’s not. Read more about Privacy and Security below. Is it just yet-another fork of a common miner? No! You’re not losing your time testing a made-up rip of a common miner, JCE is brand new, using 100% new code. Are the new Monero-V7, Cryptolight-V7, Cryptonight-Heavy, IPBC, Alloy, MKT and XTL forks supported? Yes! The --variation parameter let you choose the fork. More details below.

Barely faster than the other best on AES 64-bits, beating them by ~1%, +2.8% on V7 fork, +4% on Cryptonight-Heavy Also a lot faster on AES 32-bits, but it’s a rare case (mostly seen on Intel Atom tablets) Here’s a benchmark against three other common miners. XMRStak means: the released Unified binary from github (not recompiled myself) XMRig means: the respective best released binary gcc (32-bits) and msvc (64-bits) from github (not recompiled myself) Claymore means: best Claymore CPU (3.4 for 32-bits, 3.9 for 64-bits) When not supported, score is zero, if not tested yet, score is ?

The most common is Monero. Get a wallet, that’s a ~95 character long identifier. If you don’t have one yet, you can create it Choose a pool to mine on, and its port. For example Pool pool minexmr com and port 4444 Edit the start.bat that’s shipped in the .zip Change the example POOL by yours Change the example PORT by yours Change the example WALLET by yours You can leave the default password x (Optional) If your coin is exotic, maybe you also need to change FORK=0 to another number. See the list in the start bat Run start bat Basic topics Need .net 4.0 and > Q. Is it free (as in beer, as in freedom)? No and no. It has fees, and is not open source. But the program itself is free to distribute. Q. How much cost the fees? Current fees are: 2.0% when using at least one mining thread with non-AES architecture, or 32-bits 0.5% when using only 64-bits AES architecture The fees are twice higher in non-AES mode and/or 32-bits because JCE offers a huge performance gain here. Q. Will it work on my computer? Minimum is Windows Vista 32-bits, or Linux, with a SSE2 capable CPU. 64-bits is faster, prefer it. For best performance, Large Pages must be enabled, JCE will try to auto-configure them, but it may work or not depending on your Windows version and security configuration. Q. What currency can I mine? On which pools? You can mine any coin on any pool. If your coin is listed, all is automatic. Run the miner with --coins parameter to get the up-to-date list. Current list is: Aeon (AEON) Alloy (XAO) ArQmA (ARQ) ArtoCash (RTO) B2BCoin (B2B) Bitcoin2network (B2N) BBSCoin (BBS) Bitcoal (COAL) BitcoiNote (BTCN) Bitsum (BSM) BlackRose (BLR) Bloc (BLOC) BitTube (TUBE) BlueberriesCoin (BBC) Bytecoin (BCN) Caliber (CAL) Catalyst (XAT) Citadel (CTL) Citicash (CCH) Constella (XCC) Crepcoin (CREP) CryoNote (XCN) Dero (DERO) DeroGold (DEGO) Dinastycoin (DCY) DragonGlass (DRGL) Electronic Dollar (EDL) Electroneum (ETN) Elya (ELYA) Fonero (FNO) FreeHaven (XFH) FreelaBit (FBF) FuryCoin (FURY) Gadcoin (GAD) Graft (GRFT) Haven (XHV) HospitalCoin (HOSP) Iridium (IRD) Italo (ITA) KashKoin (KHK) Karbowanec (KRB) Lethean (LTHN) Leviarcoin (XLC) Lines (LNS) Loki (LOK) Lumeneo (LMO) MarketCash (MKT) Masari (MSR) Minergate MiningPoolHub MiningRigRentals Monero (XMR/XMV) MoneroOcean Mox (MOX) Nicehash Niobio (NBR) Ombre (OMB) ParsiCoin (PARS) Plenteum (PLE) Pluracoin (PLURA) PrivatePay (XPP) PyrexCoin (PYX) Qwertycoin (QWC) Remix (RMX) Saronite (XRN) Solace (SOL) Stellite (XTL) Sumokoin (SUMO) SuperiorCoin (SUP) Suprnova Swap (SWAP) TaxfreeCoin (TXC) Tritanium (TTNZ) Triton (TRIT) Truckcoin (TRKC) Turtlecoin (TRTL) UltraNote (XUN) UPlexa (UPX) Veronite (XVV) VideoGamesCoin (VGC) Wownero (WOW) Xaria (XARI) X-Cash (XCA) zBucks (ZBK) Zelerius (ZLS) Otherwise, if your coin is not listed, or your wallet not recognized, use the --any parameter, plus the --variation N parameter, with N the fork number, see list below. The fork detection is automatic on known coins, but manual on unknown coins. The coin list is periodically updated. Q. Is Nicehash supported? Yes, see list above. The Nicehash-specific Nonce is then automatically enabled. Q. Is SSL supported? Yes, with parameter --ssl Q. I get only bad shares, what happens? Your coin has probably forked. Add --variation N parameter, with N as listed below, until you find the one that works. Advanced topics Q. Are there requirements or dependencies? No. JCE is just a big standalone executable. Q. Is there a Linux version? Yes, starting from version 0.29 Q. Is there a GPU version? Not yet. Q. Is there a 32-bits version? Yes, both 32 and 64 are always in the same release, for both Linux and Windows. Q. How many threads can I setup? Maximum is 64 threads on 64 CPUs. Q. Do I get a discount on fees if I use SSL? I’m not Claymore. Q. What is that value logged when I find a share? The amount of hashes your pool will credit you. This is not the amount of crypto-coins. Q. Can I plug it to a stratum proxy? No, it must mine on a real pool on Internet.
