What is T-Rex miner?

T-Rex Miner is a multi-algorithm mining software optimized for NVIDIA GPUs. This mining software can mine cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Ravencoin, Firo and Ergo.

This mining software is a command-line program for Windows and Linux. This means you launch it either from a Windows command prompt or Linux console or create shortcuts to predefined command lines using a Linux Bash script or Windows batch file.

The fees are 1% for Ethash (Ethereum), Etchash (Ethereum Classic), KawPow (Ravencoin) and FiroPoW (Firo). Which means that every two hours, your mining hardware will work for T-Rex Miner’s developers for a bit over 1 minute. However, developer fee is 2% for Autolykos2 (Ergo). 

Why should you use T-Rex Miner to mine cryptocurrencies?

There are several reasons to use this mining software.

The mining software is fast

Crypto earnings will get higher with this mining software and it has the best speed for a mining pool like Cruxpool. 

Developer fee is small on several mining algorithms

It supports about 30 mining algorithms. For the majority of supported mining algorithms, this mining software only takes 1% of the mining time, which is less than 15 minutes per day. 

Monitoring page accessible

It is possible to control our miner with browsers and not with a console. The miner’s web page is accessible in a local network.

A great support

The team is always available and has different platforms like their official website or the T-Rex Miner’s Discord

How to set up T-Rex Miner?

Set up T-Rex Miner to mine on Cruxpool

Now we can start mining on Cruxpool!

Once you have downloaded the mining software, you need to choose the right script file depending on the mining algorithm you want to use for your mining on our mining pool.

For our example, we will choose Etchash (Ethereum Classic) for T-Rex Miner settings.

As we mine with on Cruxpool, copy and paste an existing file to create a new text file that you will name for example “ETC-Cruxpool.bat”.

Indeed, it is a batch file – .bat – if you are on Windows or a bash file – .sh – if you are on Linux.

Warning: If you have saved a new text file on -.txt-, you must change this extension to -.bat- for Windows ou for Linux. 

Set up T-Rex Miner by creating a mining file

Then, edit the mining file and fill it with the address of your crypto wallet, the name of the worker and the Cruxpool mining URL.

Your command line should look something like this, but with a wallet address and a worker name to fill in:

Mining command for the mining software
If you want to go faster and not bother, we invite you to use our Cruxpool command line generator and copy and paste the generated command line.

After that, save as your bash file or your batch file.

Finally, run your mining program as an administrator. This will allow you to set everything you want, including mining with LHR GPUs unlocking to 100%.

By clicking on your file, your mining starts. You should see the mining data appear. 

Mining with T-Rex Miner on HiveOS

With HiveOS, you can mine with this mining software without using a command line, but by filling in a template with the information needed for mining.

For this, you should create a new template in “Flight Sheets”. Indicate “T-Rex Miner” in the “Miner” box.

Do not forget to add a crypto wallet before in “Wallets”, which will allow you to receive the Ethereum Classic.

Then, click on “Create Flight Sheet”. 

Your mining starts

In “Workers”, assign the flight sheet to your worker. Launch it with the little rocket.
