Important update - NiceHash Miner

Dear NiceHash users,

New release of the NiceHash Miner is now available for download:

Please update your NiceHash Miner immediately as previous versions might give you invalid shares. This release brings an important fix for that issue. The latest version of the NiceHash Miner Legacy also brings this important update and upgrade is highly recommended! If you decide not to update your NiceHash Miner or NiceHash Miner Legacy you might get occasionally rejected shares and lower profits.

Important notice for buyers

With this release, we are also removing the CryptoNight and Nist5 algorithm from NiceHash Miner and NiceHash Miner Legacy. Buyers are still able to buy hashing power for CrpytoNight and Nist5 algorithm on NiceHash marketplace - but the orders will only be fulfilled by ASIC miners. Buyers can now also buy all CryptoNightV7 based coins (Stellite - XTL) that were previously not operational due to rejected shares.

Version brings the following changes and improvements:

  • Updated excavator to v1.5.2a
  • Fixed zero hash mining after NHMP errors
  • Removed CryptoNight algorithm
  • Removed Nist5 algorithm
  • Updated xmr-stak 2.4.2

We suggest you update your NVIDIA drivers for the optimal profitability! You can also join the conversation about this release on our official NiceHash subreddit.

Your NiceHash team.
