Before we get started, you may read more on what you need to Know before Mining. However this list isn't created in any particular order, neither does it try to come off as one-sided.

The Ethereum mining software that is listed below has been handpicked and analyzed, with their most attractive features written on display.

1. ETHminer
If you're a Microsoft Windows user then one of the best bets you have when it comes to Ethereum mining software is ETHminer (Windows).

Being a very popular option for mining Ethereum, ETHminer (Windows) offers an "Earnings per Minute" and "Earnings per Day" options, as well as four different levels of affiliate programs ranging from a 10% bonus all the way up to a 100% bonus!

Even though their official site offers little to no information about the creators of the software and even the software itself, a download link and file can be easily found at

If ETHminer (Windows) sounds like the Ethereum mining software that you've been looking for and if you use Windows as your operating system, give it a shot!

2. Claymore
The Claymore Ethereum miner is another popular choice if you're someone looking for good Ethereum mining software.

Claymore Ethereum miner is famous for being well-optimized and for constantly getting new updates. Currently, the miner supports a "dual mining" option - according to the creators, now you can mine both Ethereum AND another, specific type of crypto (Decred, Lbry, Pascal or Siacoin) simultaneously.
The team behind Claymore have also pumped up the mining speeds, opened up new Ethereum forks and are constantly working on supporting different kinds of operating systems (Claymore is currently available on Windows and Linux).

Considering all of the effort being put into this Ethereum mining software, it is probably safe to say that it's definitely worth trying out!



3. CGMiner
CGMiner was created and introduced to the public around six years ago. This Ethereum mining software was built using the C++ programming language, which makes it widely available and acceptable by most machines out there.

CGMiner was specifically designed as an Ethereum mining software. One of its most notable and praised features is that it allows you to work with multiple devices and mining pools. This is extremely handy if you're planning to expand and not limit yourself to mining with one device.

CGMiner is super easy to use (all you need is your username, password, URL and you're good!) and very intuitive. It's perfect for a beginner cryptocurrency miner.



4. WinETH
WinETH is another Ethereum mining software for Windows. It runs on Windows devices which have AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.

One of the best features that WinETH offers is that it's quite intuitive and easy to use. The software updates itself automatically has a designated "background" mining mode that requires a minimum amount of power and the option to mine only when your computer is idle.

You can download WinETH Ethereum mining software directly from their official site, and they also have a tutorial on how to install and use it. Furthermore, they offer their support - all you need to do is reach out.

WinETH definitely deserves a spot on the best Ethereum software list, whether it be because of the simplicity of their mining software or their willingness to offer you their support.



5. Minergate
Minergate is considered to be one of the best mining software for Mac users. They allow you to mine from the Ethereum blockchain and use the ASIC pool.

Minergate allows you to access their calculator and even have a cloud mining service. You can also monitor their services through an inbuilt section on the site or read their latest blog posts about what's going on the inside of the community.

Minergate also takes pride in being a company which is made of only cryptocurrency enthusiasts and having an around the clock support service. They've established all the way back in 2014 and have been growing in business ever since.

If you're a Mac user and are in search for the best Ethereum miner that would also be reputable and have 24/7 support, then definitely check Minergate out.

NOTE: Feel free to add any other ethereum software you have used or come across.
