As you probably know, there are more than one options how can you mine Bitcoin these days. First option is to invest and buy hardware, specially developed for the purpose of the mining Bitcoin and the other option is to invest in mining pool. There are few steps that you need to follow: get the right hardware, get the best software that matches your need and start mining. If you don\'t have so much technological knowledge, it\'s time to research which software is the best for you. Here are some software that you should consider in decision.
It is most popular software, written in C language and can be used on Windows, Linux and OS X. CGminer is open source GPU miner which is including overclocking, monitoring, fans peed control and remote interface capabilities. Another characteristics of this software are multi GPU and CPU mining support, self detection of new block with a mini database and so on.
BFGminer also has some characteristics same as CGminer. The reason is that BFGminer is derivative of the CGminer, developed specifically for FGPA and ASICs, without central focus on GPUs. It represents pretty good software for mining with some advanced characteristics like vector support, integrated overclocking and fan control, crypt mining support fort CPU and GPU.
It is surely not most popular mining software but it is very user friendly. the software\'s official website is complete and straightforward. It is developed for the users and it\'s all about making Bitcoin mining Easy and winning high rewards. Some fact that differs BitMinter from other software is that software belong to the mining pool so first you need to register on the pool. BitMinter is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
Open source software, available for Windows and Linux operative systems, still Windows users need to install the libusb driver firs. The software features a ready to use Bitstream and BTCMiner automatically chooses the frequency with the highest rate of valid hashes.
GPU Bitcoin mining software written in python based on OpenCL framework allowing programmers to write code that will work across a big variety of hardware. Users said that works perfectly with Nvidia and AMD video cards and it is great for experimentation.
It is also GPU bitcoin miner that are using same framework as Poclbm but it is written in Java. DiabloMiner allowing unlimited pools, must be opened through the terminal like cmd.exe Terminal.app
