NiceHash adds support for Grin!

Dear NiceHash users!

Grin, a private and lightweight mimblewimble blockchain coin, is now available to mine through NiceHash hash power marketplace. 

Grin accepts 2 Proofs-of-Work. Both are variants of a concept called 'Cuckoo Cycle'. We are adding both algorithms to NiceHash hash power marketplace:

  • CuckARoo29 (or ASIC Resistant) - intended to be mined by GPUs. It can be mined using a 6GB+ GPU.
  • CuckAToo31 (or ASIC Targeted) - intended to be mined by ASICs in the future. It can also be mined using 11GB+ GPUs.


How to connect your mining rig to NiceHash?

To connect your 3rd party miners directly to NiceHash, please visit our stratum generator and select the desired algorithm and location. Add the provided stratum URL to your miner.

We recommend the use of Grin-miner. Miners (and developers), please refer to the following specification when connecting to NiceHash.

Notification for buyers of hash power

Before placing orders for the selected algorithm, please check if your pool is compatible and supports our newly added Grin algorithms.

If you need help placing orders for Grin algorithms or connecting your mining rigs to NiceHash, do not hesitate to open a support ticket.

Notification for pool owners
