What is NiceHash Miner?

NiceHash Miner is a free software that allows you to connect your PC or a mining rig to NiceHash hash power marketplace. It enables you to rent out the computing power of your machine and in return, you start earning bitcoins.

We used to develop two versions of NiceHash Miner; NiceHash Miner v2 and NiceHash Miner Legacy. NiceHash Miner v2 is now discontinued and we are fully focused on developing NiceHash Miner Legacy.

NiceHash Miner Legacy is our mining software that also includes 3rd party miners, thus we cannot guarantee for every line of code that goes out with the release. That is the reason why NHML is not signed by NiceHash and users should use it on their own risk. To download NiceHash Miner please follow this link.

Important guidelines for using NHML:

  1. NiceHash Miner Legacy is usually flagged by AV (anti-virus) software. This is normal, as almost every mining software on the market is blacklisted by AV. Just make an exception in your AV software to enable the proper operation of NHML.
  2. You may have to add an exception to enable NHML download. Learn how.
  3. We cannot guarantee for every 3rd party miner code thus you agree to use it at your own risk.
  4. We suggest you don’t use cryptocurrency wallets or have any access to any cryptocurrency, sensitive or important data on the same computer where you use NHML. NiceHash will never ask or use your private keys, but we cannot guarantee the same for the 3rd party miners included in NHML now or any time in the future.
