Enemy 1.04, Z-Enemy 1.05, Suprminer 1.5, 1.6, Nevermore V 0.2.2, Ravencoin Miner v2.4, Silent Miner, A1_min3r

Recently among the Ravencoin community we found out that more than price discussion people had more concern about mining software and pools. There is always one or the other asking what is the best miner for Ravencoin (x16r) and which one is the best pool. Community members help newbie’s to choose the right miner by sharing their opinion on the miner. On the other hand pool owners have a dedicated channel where they shill their pools. This is one of the most active and healthy community where the discussion keep going on 24 / 7.

Best Pool?

With so many pools available for Ravencoin mining we say all mining pools are good. Each pool has their own support channel on Raven Discord and you can get instant help whenever there is an issue on the pool side. Remember that on smaller pools you’ll get large shares with fewer blocks found and on large pools you’ll get smaller shares with more blocks found. However overtime the amount of coins earned will be evened out.

Our suggestion would be not to join Supernova or Ravenminer as there are enough miners already. Spread your hash rate and join any small pool that at least has a 1% network hashrate and see how it goes. But note that you need patience when you are mining at small pools as it takes more time to hit a block. You can use this stats page to compare Ravencoin mining pools.

Best Miner for Ravencoin?

Well, this one is more interesting than pool. Finding the best miner for Ravencoin. While there are only few miners for AMD there are so many versions of miner available for NVIDIA at the moment.

The very first release is ccminer/2.2.5 for NVIDIA, then came enemy 1.03 – a closed source miner which was more stable and produced better results than ccminer 2.2.5. Then came Nevermore miner, an open source miner with x16r and x16s (Pigeoncoin) support with 1% dev fee to oppose closed source enemy. Then by removing 1% fees from Nevermore, suprminer spawned. After which Ravencoin Miner got released claiming 6% increase in overall hash rate. More recently enemy released its new miner versions 1.04 and zealot/enemy-1.05. At the same time Silent Miner got released – Another closed source miner with 1% dev fee and claiming 5% to 10% faster than enemy miner. Finally the most recent release is A1_min3r.

x16r miner versions list

With so many variants of miner available at the moment people really have hard time choosing the best miner. Even we’ve not tested all these new releases yet so we can’t tell which miner is fast or best. However we always recommend you to use open source miners.

We’ve found out a community member who shared their test result using 12 GPU 1080 TI rig on Windows. The test comparison was between Enemy 1.03 Vs. Suprminer 1.6 Vs. Enemy 1.05. You can find the test results here and it looks like hash rates and earnings are close enough. Really, in the long run you won’t find huge hashrate difference using these miners. Depending on your configuration one miner can be better than the other so test it yourself and see which works best for you.

Here we are not going to do any comparison, instead we’ll just list all the miners that are available for Ravencoin (x16r) along with the download links.

A Note on early miner versions: If you are using early release of Enemy Miner 1.03, Nevermore Miner or Suprminer make sure to update it to recent release. They all had a bug which caused the miner to not submit shares when the first algo is Hamsi.
