In miner details, it says miner name- (Xmrig). Does that mean we can change the miner, and if so, how, and does anyone have any suggestions?
You can’t manually change the miner in the Salad-app right now… If Salad chose XMRig, it is most likely the one that best fits your GPU (or CPU if you were CPU mining).
There is a way to change the miner, but it is a method outside of Salad called Salad CLI.
I’ve made several guides on this subject for 4 different miner methods, so if you want to check it out you can as well:
Anyways hope this helped you, have a good day!
Careful guys, the XMRIG miner has a virus. Keylogger.
First run it goes fine with phoenix, 2nd run it installs virus
No? XMRig is not a virus.
yeah i’ve been using it for sometime now- nothing bad is happening
This only works on Windows and not on an iMac. Can you tell me a method for macOS or iMac?
For Mac you’ll want to be using XMRig.
There’s a specific miner for Mac, which you can download here:
Then edit the config file to your liking (I’ve made a video on Youtube for XMRig GPU, you can follow that guide but just keep the CPU values).
Once that’s done, launch and enjoy mining!
Thank you! But, is there any other miner out there other than XMRig for mac?
