cpuminer is a Bitcoin cpu miner created by jgarzik. It receives work through the standard JSON-RPC 'getwork' command, and supports several algorithms for doing the hashing required to build a block.


  • c: Linux kernel (but not restricted to Linux) implementation of SHA256.
  • 4way: 128-bit SSE2 optimizations which are already available as a compile-time option on the classic Bitcoin client.
  • via: Implementation of the Padlock encryption optimizations on VIA CPUs.
  • cryptopp: C/C++ Implementation from the Crypto++ library.
  • cryptopp_asm32: 32-bit assembly implementation from the Crypto++ library.
