Hashbtc.jpgThis page is a stub. Help by expanding it. cpu-miner is a Bitcoin miner created by jgarzik. It mines through a proprietary JSON-RPC pooled mining protocol, and supports several algorithms for doing encryption required to build a block.


  • c: Linux kernel (but can also be used on Windows) implementation of SHA256.
  • 4way: SSE optimizations available as a compile-time option on the classic Bitcoin client.
  • padlock: Implementation of the Padlock encryption optimizations on VIA CPUs.
  • cryptopp: (Experimental) algorithm which uses the Crypto++ library.
