What is Cryptknocker?

Cryptknocker Compensation calculation amount:98%(User) 2%(GlobalSign)

Cryptknocker is a mining software operated by GlobalSign, Blockchain based Crypto Currency technology using lot of PKI and Hash algorithm technology ,highly compatible our 20 years experienced PKI base application. Cryptknocker combines all of this our know-how, technical skills, and experience of mining software development.

Cryptknocker achieves the fastest hash rate in NVIDIA GPU mining on Equihash 「200, 9」「144, 5」. The representative target Equihash 「200, 9」 algorithm crypto currency are Zcash and BitcoinGold.

Feature of Cryptknocker

Fastest mininig tool of Equihash 《144,5》

Innovative high-speed encryption logic and optimized for NVIDIA GTX1070 GPU. This algorithm optimized Equihash 《200,9》《144,5》.

About 10% efficiency improvement

The advanced high-speed encryption programing logic achieved 465 sol/s 《200,9》 and 41.3 sol/s 《144,5》 using GTX 1070. we plan to tuning another famous GPU brand..

Various acceleration programing techniques

We investigated the Round calculation of Equihash 《144,5》 and developped by transcribing from scratch. Cryptknocker full of various speeding up programing technology.

It is an introduction of Command necessary for mining and Option which can be set.

Command
mine Start mining
Option
you can start mining with described mining pool in option field.
-h, --help Display help
-i, --instance Setting up Solver Instance
--BTG mining BitcoinGold
* if no described --BTG and --ZEC, this tool mining BTG automatically
--ZEC mining Zcash
* if no described --BTG and --ZEC, this tool mining BTG automatically
Arguments to pass to SolverInstance
-d, --device-id ID of CUDA device that runs Solver 0 by default
-b, --busy-loop Performance busy loop when waiting for GPU processing. Slightly improved performance Instead of increasing CPU calculate time.
Setting place
-l, --location
Specify the server and port to connect (ex: = us1-zcash.flypool.org: 3443)
-u, --username
Specify the user name or wallet address(eg t1NpbdueHBNY291fZbN95CYEtHBxJvcrygD)
-p, --password
Specify password By default "x" 
--no-verification
no validation trusted chain TLS server certificate
--no-encryption
connect pool using plain text communication protocol
Actual set example 
GPU 0 mining BitcoinGold. connect pool using TLS.
./cryptknocer mine --BTG -l btg.suprnova.cc:8817 -u 〇〇.▲▲ -p □□□
GPU 0 mining BitcoinGold. connect pool using no encryption protocol.
./cryptknocer mine --BTG -l btg.suprnova.cc:8866 -u 〇〇.▲▲ -p □□□ --no-encryption
GPU 0 mining BitcoinGold. connect pool with TLS. not validation TLS trusted chain.
./cryptknocer mine --BTG -l btg-eu.coinblickers.com:8443 -u "walletaddress" --no-verification

FAQ
