Kaspa Mining — Miners and Pools
Kaspa is currently the fastest proof-of-work, mineable coin while remaining decentralized. The blockDAG architecture with rapid block rates allows more mining decentralization and enables effective solo mining at lower hashrates.
KASPA MINING SOFTWARE
Mining software is a type of program used to extract cryptocurrency or other digital assets through a process called mining. The software connects to a blockchain network and performs complex mathematical calculations to validate transactions and add new blocks to the blockchain. In return, the miner can earn block rewards for securing the network.
Here are some popular miner software options from Kaspa.org.
KASPAMINER — Linux/Windows OSs and Nividia/AMD GPUs
LOLMINER — Linux/Windows OSs and Nividia/AMD GPUs
BZMINER — Linux/Windows OSs and Nividia/AMD GPUs
SRBMINER — Linux/Windows OSs and only CPUs
TEAM RED MINER — Linux/Windows OSs and only AMD GPUs
GMINER — Linux/Windows OSs and only Nvidia GPUs
KASPA MINING POOLS
A mining pool is a group of cryptocurrency miners who combine their computing power to increase their chances of solving a cryptographic puzzle and earning a reward. In a mining pool, participating miners split the rewards proportionally according to the total computational power they contribute.
In solo mining, individual miners compete with each other to solve the puzzle and earn the reward. However, the odds of successfully solving the puzzle are low, especially with the increasing difficulty of the network. By pooling their resources, miners in a mining pool can increase their chances of successfully solving the puzzle and, as a result, earn more rewards.

Tip: WoolyPooly has the largest hashrate share in the Kaspa pools. Consider mining other pools to keep Kaspa decentralized and distribute the network’s hashrate.
