What is CryptoDredge?
CryptoDredge – is a highly optimized cryptocurrency miner for Nvidia GPUs. It is available for both Windows and Linux mining. In addition to using various optimization techniques to increase the hash rate, the CryptoDredge team also pays attention to ensuring consistent power consumption. Supports many different algorithms.
The software works only with video cards of the NVIDIA family.
How to set up CryptoDredge
Step 1 - Download the miner
Step 2 - Configure the miner
After extraction, in the same folder as
cryptodredge.exe, you need to create a file with the extension
.bat or edit the finished one. Open the .bat file with Notepad. Below is a sample setup for NiceHash. You need to add the following commands to it:
@echo off title (rvn) - nicehash cryptodredge -a kawpow -o stratum+tcp://kawpow.eu-west.nicehash.com:3385 -u 3P7qADz69quhfyK5e9kvfno6Jyjq4Rcocx -p x --log 1.txt pause
P7qADz69quhfyK5e9kvfno6Jyjq4Rcocx just paste in your wallet address from your NiceHash account.
The file with the extension
.bat is created in any text editor.
Step 3 - Run the miner
The program is launched in a standard way: double-click the left mouse button on the file with the extension
.bat. After starting, a window opens with an indication of all the entered parameters. There will be enough of them to start mining tokens. Just double click it, a terminal window will appear and you start mining!
Setting up for Ravencoin
Here’s a complete setup example:
CryptoDredge- starts the program.
kawpow- indicate the cryptocurrency mining algorithm.
rvn.2miners.com- we indicate the address of the pool.
6060- we specify the port of the pool.
RKAeArXkWLNERjWo5YF3R1xFnYCwKf11sX- we paste the crypto wallet of the token. You can use an exchange or cold wallet at your own discretion.

CryptoDredge -a kawpow -o stratum+tcp://rvn.2miners.com:6060 -u RKAeArXkWLNERjWo5YF3R1xFnYCwKf11sX -p x
How To Mine and Stake Equilibria
Configuration via Config.json
- Open the
config.jsonfile with Notepad.
- Find and change the following lines:
"url: "[pool address]"
"user: "[wallet address]"
Instead of [wallet address] just paste your wallet address. Be sure to save the quotes with the quotation marks. If you don’t have a wallet yet, you can learn how to create a wallet here.
Instead of [pool address], you will need to select a mining pool. You can read more about mining pools here. Again, be sure to keep the quotation marks.!
- Save the file and run
CryptoDredge.exefor Windows. or

Most problems usually arise from outdated GPU drivers. If the miner doesn’t work or can’t detect your GPU, try updating your drivers to the latest versions!
Many Nvidia miners require CUDA to work properly. You should download and install the latest CUDA toolkit for your Nvidia card.
