This 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 not restricted to Linux) implementation of SHA256.
- 4way: SSE optimizations which are already available as a compile-time option on the classic Bitcoin client.
- padlock: Implementation of the Padlock encryption optimization on VIA CPUs.
- cryptopp: (Experimental) algorithm which uses the Crypto++ library.
