nsfminer (no stinkin' fees)

standard-readme compliant Gitter

Ethereum (ethash) miner with OpenCL, CUDA and stratum support

nsfminer is an Ethash GPU mining application: with nsfminer you can mine every coin which relies on an Ethash Proof of Work.

This is a direct descendent of the Ethminer project at Since that project is largely abandoned and unmanaged this personal version is published with the hope that it may continue to be useful. In the spirit of open source problem reports and pull requests are welcome, but please use git-clang-format on your requests.
