Adjust difficulty to your mining needs

TheGrinPool now allows you to adjust difficulty. Increasing difficulty is good for miners who have a large amount of hash and want to reduce the bandwidth you use.

./bminer -uri $SCHEME://$USERNAME:$PWD@$POOL -api

(GMINER) Default Config:
./miner — algo $SCHEME — server $POOL — port…
