How to use Wildrig

Step 1 - Download the miner

Download Wildrig, unpack it into a separate folder and find start.bat. Wildrig download

Configure a batch file for KawPow

Be sure to replace it YOUR_ADDRESS with your wallet address. RIG_ID replace with your own farm name. You can name the farm whatever you like, but the name must contain only Latin letters and symbols "-" and "_". The wallet must match the cryptocurrency you are mining

Here is an example Wildrig .bat file for a Beepool (Ravencoin):

wildrig.exe --print-full --algo kawpow --url stratum+tcp://rvn-pool.beepool.org:9531 --worker RIG_ID --user RKAeArXkWLNERjWo5YF3R1xFnYCwKf11sX --pass x

Step 3 - Launch Wildrig

Save this batch file and then click start.bat to start mining.

Config example for Firo (Zcoin)

STRATUM: stratum+tcp://xzc.2miners.com
PORT: 8080
Username (wallet): aMLjCeLBmBGEJP6dYtWEMdZZuPH4w6uFsK
Password: x

This is how the WildRig batch file for Firo (Zcoin):

wildrig.exe --print-full --algo mtp --url stratum+tcp://xzc.2miners.com:8080 --worker RIG_ID --user aMLjCeLBmBGEJP6dYtWEMdZZuPH4w6uFsK --pass x

This is how the WildRig batch file for Ravencoin on the Beepool will look like:

batch file Wildrig

To configure a batch file for KAWPOW, we need to enter 5 commands one by one:

batch file Wildrig

  1. wildrig.exe - the name of the launched file
  2. kawpow - algorithm for mining
  3. rvn-pool.beepool.org:9531 - pool address and por
  4. RKAeArXkWLNERjWo5YF3R1xFnYCwKf11sX - the wallet that will be used for mining.

Setup for NiceHash

Here is a batch file for NiceHesh:

wildrig.exe --print-full --algo kawpow --url stratum+tcp://kawpow.eu-west.nicehash.com:3385 --worker RIG_ID --user 3LZhp4g3m7YWqR4hAPrZsKWbyo7hRBmqvy --pass x


--algo or a short synonym for this command -a - Selects the mining algorithm.

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

Further commands will be separated by commas. First a short synonym, and then long. Remember to use only one variation.

-h, --help - display help information and exit

-v, --version - Display version and exit.

-c, --config \<config file path> - Use config in JSON format instead of batch file (CMD file).







  • implemented firopow
  • implemented mike
  • implemented support for future DAG reduction of progpow-veil
  • implemented background compilation of progpow kernels
  • fixed support gfx1034(Radeon 6500XT)
  • up to 10% faster curvehash


  • support curvehash on nvidia gpu’s.
  • slight speedup of curvehash for Polaris/Vega gpu’s.



  • improved heavyhash for AMD Polaris(~1.5%), Vega(~10%), RDNA/RDNA2(~3-4%);
  • implemented correct message of unsupported iGPU’s on newer AMD drivers(21.5.2+);
  • implemented parameter --watchdog-script;
  • fixed monitoring AMD gpu’s temperature/power/fan under Linux, and RDNA/RDNA2 on Windows.


  • improved heavyhash up to 10% on RDNA/RDNA2 gpu’s with less power consumption.
  • fixed power jumps on NVIDIA gpu’s.


  • added default parameters for CMP 40/50/70/90/170 HX and RTX A4500/5000/6000.
  • improved heavyhash by ~80% (NVIDIA Pascal/Turing/Ampere) and 20%(AMD RDNA2).
  • dev-fee set to 2% on heavyhash for nvidia rig.

0.30.6 beta

  • one more round of heavyhash optimizations(up to 10% on some cards).
  • fixed duplicate nvidia gpu’s on some systems.

0.30.3 beta

  • fixed broken 5500/5600/5700 support(introduced in 0.30.2)
  • implemented heavyhash(nvidia gpu’s need some further optimizations)

0.30.2 beta

  • support ssl
  • slightly faster ghostrider(1-2%)

0.30.1 beta

  • fixed rejects on ghostrider;
  • lowered devfee to 1% on ghostrider;
  • now should support gfx803(RX550 cards on newest drivers).

0.30.0 beta

  • fixed support different drivers for RDNA/RDNA2 gpu’s;
  • implemented ghostrider;
  • hints: Polaris and Vega gpu’s can boost from --opencl-threads 2 parameter and higher intensity(like --opencl-launch 2048). Just consider available memory on your gpu. 2048 will use 4Gb + a bit more, so 4Gb won’t work. Try lower values like 1792 or 1920

0.29.0 beta

  • implemented support of AMD RDNA 2 gpu’s(6x00 series)
  • fixed support new AMD drivers
