Finom AG is a blockchain holding company, which has been working on a new project called FinMiner since September 2017. The project is meant to provide the ability for users to handle their mining rigs themselves. Users are able to easily establish their setup on their own, while maintaining stability and simplifying the process of monitoring the graphics card. The easiest way to use this platform is with the download for Windows, which can be found on GitHub or miner.finom.io.
Participants of the program will have the option of adapting Ethash, CryptoNight, and CryptoNightV7 algorithms. With those adaptions, users can mine coins on Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Monero, Electroneum, and over 20 other cryptocurrencies.
The miner was created with the intention of being used with Windows, so it will be able to track temperature, energy consumption, and performance on Nvidia graphics cards. Eventually, AMD graphics cards will also be compatible. Recently, Finom AG hosted the alpha-testing on their mining farm, while Nanopool took over the beta-testing with their users.

With the testing, the miner performed at a rate that was either equivalent to or greater than competing brands. The testing included FinMiner in its compatibility with AMD graphics cards and the rest of the Linux family.
Alexander Barkovsky, the founder of Nanopool and a development manager with FinMiner, released the following statement:
“FinMiner solves the problem of difficult set-up and having to use a separate miner for each individual coin. Here, users install a single client and, with it, mine various coins. The program has such simple file configuration that even newcomers can learn to use it quickly and start mining right away. The program currently supports two algorithms, but we plan to expand that list over time.”
