XMR-STAK-RX v1.0.1 — RandomX — This release only supports RandomX variants. This is the first bug fix release for xmr-stak-rx. There is no development fee of any kind.

November 30, Monero (XMR) will work hard on block 1978433 to switch to a new algorithm. The upcoming fork will change the current CryptoNight R mining algorithm to the new Random X PoW algorithm.

There are already several miners mining coins using the RandomX algorithm, one of which XMR-STAK-RX.

The developers of the XMR-STAK program released the initial version to support the RandomX algorithm – the xmr-stak-rx program. In the new version there is no commission to developers, it will probably be added later. This release only supports various variants of the RandomX algorithm.

For AMD GPUs Linux requires an AMD driver, ROCm is not supported. Graphic NVIDIA processors require CUDA 9.0 or later. Minimum required the amount of main memory on the GPU and / or CPU is ~ 3GiB.

To improve our support we created /r/xmrstak sub-reddit check it out if you have a problem, or you are looking for most up to date config for your card.

Release notes

This release adds mining support of 2 new currencies. Their aliases are keva and safex respectively. If you are planning to mine a coin that has same algo: use randomx_keva and randomx_safex in pools.txt or in “currency to mine” setup parameter. Xmr-Stak-RX 1.0.5 is also now up to date with newest xmrig.

Since GPUs have no sense in RandomX mining compared to CPUs – we disabled it in Xmr-Stak-RX build. If you wish to mine GPU coins (Like Ryo with Cryptonight-GPU): use Xmr-Stak build.

FAQ

Q: Why guys that say they want decentralisation want everyone to use one miner?
A: Because just like privacy it is just an empty marketing slogan, with no relation to what community leaders actually want.

Q: Why is my “friend” saying that I shouldn’t be using free Xmr-Stak-RX or faster RagerX, but instead – go through extra steps to get free xmrig?
A: This is cryptocurreny world. Everyone is looking out for themselves. What your “friend” is trying to do is advance his social position by giving you bad financial advice. Think with your wallet, don’t put yourself at a financial disadvantage to please a guy you have never seen.

Q: Are you just stealing from xmrig?
A: It is a popular Monero propaganda line. Xmr-stak has been around for much longer than xmrig. They copied xmr-stak code [ 1 ]. We didn’t complain – that’s the point of free and open source software. Xmrig developer actively pushed free xmr-stak versions – and when we made xmr-stak-rx free, he decided it has a virus 😂 [ 2 ]. If you feel that this kind of guy deserves your financial support, we are nice enough to put the link on the front page.

How to run RandomX mining?

  1. Download and unzip precompiled binary (.EXE) files to a new folder
  2. Change the currency parameter in pools.txt to “currency”: “randomx”, example pool configuration
  3. Run xmr-stak-rx via bat file

You can run the program through the bat file too:

xmr-stak-rx батник

Example batch file settings:

xmr-stak-rx.exe -o xmr-eu.dwarfpool.com:8050 -u 44tLjmXrQNrWJ5NBsEj2R77ZBEgDa3fEe9GLpSf2FRmhexPvfYDUAB7EXX1Hdb3aMQ9FLqdJ56yaAhiXoRsceGJCRS3Jxkn.5d3c802ee0f8e12e4eb9792722b7816a42178aa29ef7477c138ddb940c55648d.rig1 -p x --noCPU
pause

If you do not want to mine Monero / Random X after forking on video cards, run xmr-stak-rx once before the fork and let the miner create amd.txt and / or nvidia.txt configurations. Edit both files and set “gpu_threads_conf”: [] to disable the video cards and leave only the processor.

If the application does not start properly, make sure the Visual Studio libraries are installed. You can download them from https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=746572
