The allium hard fork has been released! If you were mining before the allium fork (and haven't updated yet), you will have to change a couple of things before you can get mining again.

This guide teaches you how to update your miners to allium. If haven't already set it up, check out the Garlic Recipes website.

Updating Miners

Updating miners should not be very complicated. Most miners are available for download, but some aren't very optimized or might not work on every platform/version.

If you are pool mining, make sure that the pool you mine to has been updated to allium (Most active pools should be good by now).


If you use an Nvidia GPU for Mining, you have to download the updated CCMiner.
For now, GPUs with Compute Capability lower than 2.0 are not supported, it still needs to be ported to support allium. You can check which Compute Capability your GPU supports here.

Download ccminer (Windows & Linux).
Download ccminer (Mac).

Someone has compiled a Compute 2.0 (and 2.1) compatible miner, you can find it here.

Furthermore, in your .bat file, you will have to replace -a scrypt:10 to -a allium


If you have an AMD GPU, you will have to download the updated SGMiner, YACMiner has not yet been ported. It isn't well optimized yet, but we are working hard to fix it.

Download sgminer (Windows & Linux).

You will also need to replace the --algorithm scrypt-n --nfactor 11 to --algorithm allium


CPU miner has been ported for Windows, but if you are on another platform, you might have to build it yourself.

Download cpuminer (for Windows) If you want to build it (or are on Mac/Linux) you can use the GitHub Repository.

Furthermore, in your .bat file, you will have to replace -a scrypt:2048 to -a allium

Solo Mining & Wallet

If you are solo mining or are using the garlicoin core wallet (aka garlicoind), you also need to update your binaries, which you can download here. Simply download the file(s) and replace the previous one(s).

More Info

If you need more info on the hard fork, check out this guide.

If you need help with setting up a wallet or anything Garlicoin related, check out Garlic Recipes.

If there's anything I should change, please tell me!

EDIT: Added support for Compute 2.1 & 2.0

EDIT: Cleaned up, updated 4/7/18


No bamboozle, I promise

EDIT: The God of Garlicoin has responded. Video incoming.

EDIT 2: ETA for video is in the first week or so of June.


This might be a stupid question but still.

I set up a wallet and followed instructions to mine via GPU using these instructions (

After 4 hours,I saw statements like these

[2018-05-23 20:28:07] allium block 259970, diff 61.397

[2018-05-23 20:28:17] GPU #0: GeForce 920M, 57.14 kH/s

[2018-05-23 20:28:17] GPU #0: 949 MHz 50C FAN 0%

[2018-05-23 20:28:45] GPU #0: GeForce 920M, 57.14 kH/s

[2018-05-23 20:28:46] accepted: 1/1 (diff 0.007), 57.14 kH/s yes!

I didn't know how to stop and pressed CTRL+C to stop the process in CMD and checked my balance using

garlicoin-cli getwalletinfo

But found my balance to be zero.

So can someone guide me how to stop mining and add balance to wallet.

Thanks in Advance!


Half the time it's down or something, the other half of the time I get "Whoops, looks like something went wrong" Garlium is just as fucking bad. Can someone create a wallet that works?

Edit: If anyone has contact information for the creator of I'd appreciate it, I would like to remove my garlicoin from the website, at this point it seems like theft.


First of I would like to thank whoever it was that sent me the 14GRLC as a donation, thank you so very much!

I am doing a mini raffle: two prizes of 50 GRLC!

To those that sent me garlic before I even started the draw, I have sent it back (as you may not be satisfied with the prize pool).

For those that do not know, head on over the to join for only 0.1GRLC per ticket! (Drawn 25th of May)
