    #################################################

    I’ve written it initially for my own purpose. It performs pretty well - so here it is. Compatible with devices having Compute Capability 5.0 and greater i.e. it should run fine on Maxwell/Pascal GPUs. Supports every server using the stratum protocol. If you have issues with certain pools pls. report them here.

    Contains 2% devfee. Suggestions are welcome.
