Two miners that are designed for NVIDIA GPUs, that supports a wide range of algorithms and are largely used by NVIDIA miners are Enemy miner and T-Rex Miner. Both are closed source miners, contains 1% dev fee and are not based on ccminer or any other mining software. Both the miners are available for Windows / Linux and both the miners have just released a new version with support for BCD – An algorithm used by Bitcoin Diamond.
Currently mining BCD (Bitcoin Diamond) seems more profitable and since both the miners have just included this algorithm we decided to put together in a single post for your convenience. In addition to new algorithm they both have optimized performance on various other algorithms that they support. Following are the list of algorithms supported by the latest version Enemy and T-Rex miner.

- Enemy version 1.20 miner has now got support for BCD (Bitcoin Diamond). The developer states that this miner performs 20% to 30% better compared to current available miners.
- Another update is Z-Enemy 1.20 has got major performance improvements compared to Enemy 1.19. There is no mention on any specific algorithms but looks like there is a slight performance increase on X16R, X16S and X17. Also same as previous release; 32 bit version of this miner seem to perform faster on some of the algorithms.
If you are mining Bitcoin Diamond or if you are using previous release then try this new miner Enemy 1.20. But before downloading do keep in mind that this miner is a closed source application. Also to get best performance ensure that you have the latest NVIDIA drivers installed which also applies if you are using T-Rex miner.
Download Enemy 1.20
Linux: (Eth OS, Hive OS, PiMP OS , & Ubuntu)
Just like enemy the developer of T-Rex miner also constantly updating their miner in order to provide the best experience to its users. T-Rex is also a closed source miner that comes with 1% developer fee. Just how Enemy is best at X16 algorithm, T-Rex is best at Lyra2z. But how about BCD which both the miner just included? Since both are new there is not much comparison done by the community. So if you are interested in mining BCD / Bitcoin Diamond then in addition to Z-Enemy 1.20 also try this latest version T-Rex miner 0.6.5. It features:
- New algorithm support: Bitcoin Diamond (BCD)
- Speed improvements on following algorithms: 2% to 3% on bitcore, hmq1725, renesis and x16r/s. 1 to 3% improvements on c11, sonoa and x17.
Note: Before using both the miners make sure to install the latest drivers for optimal performance . Also we’d like to let you know that your Windows defender or your Antivirus will remove the application. Just add exclusions and you should be good to go.
