NHMv2 discontinued - NHML is twice as profitable!

Today, we are introducing some changes to our NiceHash Miner product line. We are terminating the development of the NiceHash Miner v2 and focusing our development solely on NiceHash Miner Legacy and upcoming NiceHash OS (NHOS). In this press release, we explain the reasons for such decision and what are the main benefits for miners.

As you might know, NiceHash Miner is one of the most popular and profitable miners on the market. Two versions exist:

  • NiceHash Miner v2 (NHM)
  • NiceHash Miner Legacy (NHML)

What is the difference?

  • NiceHash Miner v2 is our signed version of the popular mining software that includes only Excavator. Excavator is an in-house developed proprietary mining software that combines different mining algorithms. Because our developers implemented every line of code, we are able to sign every release of the software and guarantee there is no malicious code present.
  • NiceHash Miner Legacy is our mining software that unlike NHM 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.

What are the changes and how do miners benefit?

Starting today, we are terminating the development of the NiceHash Miner v2 and we will focus completely on the development of NiceHash Miner Legacy. The reason is the fact that in the past 12 months professional teams for developing crypto mining algorithms emerged. To bring you the best possible mining profitability with our software we have to include the latest algorithms developed by those teams. Since the speed of delivery is of great importance when it comes to mining algorithms we decided to stop the development of Excavator and deliver the most profitable algorithms through NiceHash Miner Legacy instead. This will bring you the most profitable algorithms in the shortest amount of time and going forward NHML will stay the most profitable miner on the market! NiceHash Miner Legacy works both with NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards!

NiceHash Miner v2 will continue to work but we suggest you switch to NiceHash Miner Legacy as soon as possible!  NHML is already almost twice as profitable!

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 in your browser 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.
  5. Add an exception to Windows Defender for the NiceHash Miner Legacy folder (after you unzip the package).
