coded in vb.net and has .net dependencies
Persistance : If user deletes the startup registry key, the miner will write a new startup key immediately
Anti Sleep : Prevent the machine from going to sleep mode
Silent : uses 1 core when there is activity and 100% when the system is idle
For the CPU Miner it works only with 64 bits system
Mutex : This guarantees only one instance of the miner will run per PC
Auto GPU Detect ( Nvidia or AMD )
Whats is a silent miner?
Silent miner is a tool to let you silently mining cryptocurrency on someone’s pc in the background, the many pc you infected, the higher your profit.
What is Monero? Does the miner work with other cryptocurrencies like LTC, BTC, etc.?
You can find out more about Monero here: https://getmonero.org/
Monero silent miner only works with cryptonight algorithm coins. So no, it does not work with LTC, BTC, etc. Don’t worry about this, since currently the most profitable coin to mine with cpu is Monero.
Is cpu mining still profitable?
CPU mining is a bad idea for most cryptocurrencies. Fortunately, you can still make money cpu mining Monero. Why? The reason is that there are no ASICs mining Monero and GPU mining offers little advantage over CPU mining compared to other cryptocurrencies.
What mining engine do you use?
xmrig’s miner. To create the silent miner, 32 and 64bit binaries were compiled from source (static builds, no dlls nedded). Both binaries (32 and 64bit) are packed in the 720kb silent miner!
Please note the mining engines never touch disk, everything is done in memory.
Is the miner detected by antivirus?
Yes. To reduce detections you have to crypt the file.
[Updated November 18 2017] For miner running in 100 clients, with an average of 30 H/s per client, that is 3000 H/s or 3 kH/s. For this example I use the profitability calculator in minexmr.com (current network hash rate is 242 MH/s). 3 kH/s gives you 0.05 XMR/day, that is $6.55 USD per day at current exchange rate (1 XMR = $131 USD)
