Is Claymore's the best Ethereum miner?

Discussion in 'Mining Newbie Lounge' started by BrightnessOne, Dec 10, 2017.

  1. So I've been looking into the variety of different mining softwares that you can use to mine Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies, and it seems like Claymore's is the most popular. Is it the best one to use, though? And are there any other obvious options that I should consider?

    Personally, I didn't even know there was another miner besides Claymore's. That's the one that I see everyone recommend, at least.

    Claymore's is far and away the most popular miner for Ethereum, that's for sure. It works with all the most popular mining pools and seems to have some of the best reliability and compatibility with various graphics cards. I've only used Claymore's on my rigs. The only other mining software I'd really recommend is EthOS, but that's an entire operating system that you install and is basically nothing more than an Ethereum miner. So if you want to use your rig for anything beyond mining, it's not a great choice.

    So far I have only used Claymore, for 8 months. Updated as needed of course.
