CC Miner 2.2: Download, Setup and Commands, Algorithms

Everything about CCMiner: Setup for MTP, algorithms, commands, GitHubs.

This article describes how to get started mining with CCMiner 2.2 and newer.

Download for Windows / Linux

Download releases from GitHub Download releases from BitcoinTalk


CCMiner - is a program for mining FIRO (MTP) and other cryptocurrencies. The program works on Windows and Linux.

How to mine with CCMiner

Step 1 - Download the miner

Download or unzip the executable file to a folder of your choice. For XZC MTP (Firo), you can download it from this GitHub Release url. Make sure you select the correct file for your OS. If you have Windows, download the file ccminer_cuda11, if you have Linux, download the file ccminer_linux_cuda100 ccminer download

Step 2 - Configure a batch file for Firo

WalletAddress must be changed to your address, which can be found in your ZCoin wallet or on your cryptocurrency exchange

Here is my .bat file using ccminer and 2Miners pool:

ccminer -a mtp -o  stratum+tcp://  -u  aMLjCeLBmBGEJP6dYtWEMdZZuPH4w6uFsK -p 0 

Step 3 - Launch CCMiner

Save your .bat file in the same folder where you extracted the mining software. Then double click on it to launch the miner. A cmd window will open showing you the mining status and after a few minutes you should see that your decisions have been made by the mining pool.

Config example for mtp zcoin

STRATUM: stratum+tcp://
PORT: 8080
Username: aMLjCeLBmBGEJP6dYtWEMdZZuPH4w6uFsK
Password: 0

This is how the CCMiner batch file for Firo will look like on the 2miners pool:

batch file for Firo

To configure a batch file for MTP, we need to enter 4 commands one by one:

batch file for Firo example

  1. mtp - specify the algorithm
  2. - we indicate the pool
  3. 8080 - specify the port of the pool
  4. aMLjCeLBmBGEJP6dYtWEMdZZuPH4w6uFsK - specify the wallet address.

This is how the finished CCMiner batch file will look like:

ccminer -a mtp -o  stratum+tcp://  -u  aMLjCeLBmBGEJP6dYtWEMdZZuPH4w6uFsK -p 0 


How to Mine with NiceHash

Here is a batch file for NiceHesh:

ccminer -a lyra2z -o stratum+tcp:// -u 3LZhp4g3m7YWqR4hAPrZsKWbyo7hRBmqvy -p 0 

How to Mine ZCOIN (XZC) - Nvidia - HiveOS

In this video I will show how to mine Zcoin.


The Firoorg version ccminer supports all major algorithms including the most recent one such as Firo, yescrypt.

Currently, the program cannot mine: Monero, Zcash, Equihash, bitcoin, Ethereum.


Algorithm Coin
blake Blake 256 (SFR)
mtp Zcoin (Firo)
scrypt Litecoin


--algo or a short synonym for this command -a - indicates the mining algorithm (for example: ‘mtp’, ‘lyra2Z’, ‘scrypt’, ‘myr-gr’)

Important! Use either a long synonym --algo or a short one -a. You do not need to use this and that together.

Mining Features MTP (FIRO)

mtp requires 4.4 GB of virtual memory, so cards with less than 4.5 GB of virtual memory will not work.

The program also uses about 500MB and 4.4xCard Swap amount.

The author of this article is still working on the ethash+vtc miner. Already added support for weird stratum implementations in some pools.
