  -url string
    	siad host and port (default "localhost:9980")
        for stratum servers, use `stratum+tcp://<host>:<port>`
  -user string
        username, most stratum servers take this in the form [payoutaddress].[rigname]
        This is optional, if solo mining sia, this is not needed
  -I int
    	Intensity (default 28)
  -E string
        Exclude GPU's: comma separated list of devicenumbers
    	If set, also use the CPU for mining, only GPU's are used by default
  -v	Show version and exit

See what intensity gives you the best hashrate, increasing the intensity also increases the stale rate though.

Stratum support

Stratum support is implemented as defined on https://siamining.com/stratum

Developer fee

A developer fee of 1% is created by submitting 1% of the shares for my address if using the stratum protocol. The code is open source so you can simply remove that line if you want to. To make it easy for you, the exact line is https://github.com/robvanmieghem/gominer/blob/master/algorithms/sia/siastratum.go#L307 if you do not want to support the gominer development.


  • ERROR fetching work - Status code 404

    If you are solomining, make sure the miner module is enabled in siad: siad -M cghrtwm

  • ERROR fetching work - Get http://localhost:9980/miner/header: dial tcp connection refused

    Make sure siad is running

  • What is siad?

    Check the sia documentation

  • I don't know how to set up siad or the sia UI wallet, how do I do that?

    Check the sia documentation.

  • You have to help me set up mining SIA

    No I don't
