Instructions

LOCATION can be "eu", "usa", "hk", "jp", "in", or "br" (see also this), YOUR-BITCOIN-ADDRESS is your Bitcoin address, used for mining, WORKER-NAME is optional to name your rig.

CPU mining instructions

nheqminer -l equihash.[LOCATION].nicehash.com:3357 -u [YOUR-BTC-ADDRESS.WORKER-NAME] -t [number of CPU threads]

CPU mining example

nheqminer -l equihash.usa.nicehash.com:3357 -u 1DQ4bZpFTDiSNk2CWLEFWK9K96rBFP2Hv -t 6

In the example above, we're mining on USA stratum pool. We have a quad-core CPU with hyper-threading and we only enable 6 of the available 8 threads.

AMD GPU mining instructions

nheqminer -l equihash.[LOCATION].nicehash.com:3357 -u [YOUR-BTC-ADDRESS.WORKER-NAME] -t 0 -od [AMD GPU OpenCL devices 0 1 ..]

AMD GPU mining example

nheqminer -l equihash.usa.nicehash.com:3357 -u 1DQ4bZpFTDiSNk2CWLEFWK9K96rBFP2Hv -t 0 -od 0 1

In the example above, we're mining on USA stratum pool. We have a computer with two AMD GPUs, hence using -od 0 1.

NVIDIA GPU mining instructions

nheqminer -l equihash.[LOCATION].nicehash.com:3357 -u [YOUR-BTC-ADDRESS.WORKER-NAME] -t 0 -cd [NVIDIA GPU CUDA devices 0 1 ..]

NVIDIA GPU mining example

nheqminer -l equihash.usa.nicehash.com:3357 -u 1DQ4bZpFTDiSNk2CWLEFWK9K96rBFP2Hv -t 0 -cd 0

In the example above, we're mining on USA stratum pool. We have a computer with only one NVIDIA GPU, hence using -cd 0.

CPU + GPU simultaneous mining instructions

nheqminer -l equihash.[LOCATION].nicehash.com:3357 -u [YOUR-BTC-ADDRESS.WORKER-NAME] -t [number of CPU threads] -cd [NVIDIA GPU CUDA devices 0 1 ..] (or -od [AMD GPU OpenCL devices 0 1 ..])

CPU + NVIDIA GPU mining example

nheqminer -l equihash.usa.nicehash.com:3357 -u 1DQ4bZpFTDiSNk2CWLEFWK9K96rBFP2Hv -t 6 -cd 0

In the example above we're mining on USA stratum pool. We have a quad-core CPU with hyper-threading (8 threads available) and only one NVIDIA GPU in the computer. We are mining with 6 threads on the CPU and on the whole NVIDIA GPU.
