2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade t-rex -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade t-rex -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)

Mining made faster than ever

T-Rex is a simple to use and highly optimized cryptocurrency mining software. It utilizes the full potential of modern NVIDIA graphics cards using unique optimization techniques.

We have also devoted great attention to stable power consumption. These benefits, along with only 1% devfee, make our product one of the best publicly available miners.

Let your devices earn with T-Rex!

Why T-Rex

Still in doubt? Read about main advantages of our product

Fast and Stable

You will get the best speed on mining pool. Your crypto earnings will get higher with T-Rex and this is really stable. Our users are getting many months of uptime without issues.

Small developer fee

T-Rex has one of the lowest prices for usage. For the majority of supported algorithms we only take 1% of your mining time as a reward. This is less than 15 minutes per day.

You don't need other miner in case the coin you mine goes down in price. Just switch to another profitable algorithm. At this moment we support: Ethash, Kawpow, Octopus, Autolykos2, MTP, Firopow, Progpow.

Control and Monitoring page

It is possible to control your miner via your browser and you don't need to look at your console anymore. You can make the miner's web page accessible in your local network.
Control and Monitoring page

Advanced API

You can easily integrate T-Rex into your programs or web services. All communication between the miner and your software occurs via HTTP 'GET' and 'POST' requests using JSON structures.

Continuous improvement and support

We don't stop working on the miner even during holidays. We want you to get the best experience with T-Rex. Your best ideas will be implemented shortly. Feel free to contact us for help and suggestions.

Antivirus Alerts and Cryptocurrency Mining Warning

In order to protect the miner from reverse engineering attacks, the binaries in this miner are obfuscated like how real viruses are. Therefore, it may trigger an antivirus alert. See here. Do not mine on a computer where you store your sensitive data.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
