Question on breakers, and PSU
Source: Mining - reddit.com/r/BitcoinMining

Using 220V What breaker A rating should I be using for a Antminer Power Supply APW3++, or Evga 1600w Evga 1300w? I have used 20 A, but found that breakers will trip if too many PSUs are using the same circut. I have used 30 A and 40 A, but I two PSUs (one Ant miner, one Evga) stopped working. According to Bitmain’s troubleshooting page for their PSU, ” The PSU suddenly has no output, and cannot start Reason: The PSU has an overcurrent protection Solution: Check whether the load current is instantaneously over the upper limit of the over-current protection, and the PSU gets into the locked state. To prevent fire or other dangerous situations when the load is abnormal, and PSU continues to work. Replace a good PSU to test, and after replacing, if the miner work normally,…

BXB-Miner is a New Cryptonight AMD GPU and CPU Miner
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

There is a new miner on the block called BXB-Miner that supports many different variants of the CryptoNight algorithm intended for AMG GPU miners, though it also supports CPU mining, that comes with a graphical user interface (kind of) as you still need to the the setup in a config file. It is a closed source miner, available only for Windows for the moment, though surprisingly there is no developer fee as we are used to see with most non-opensource miners. BXB-Miner works with: – Cryptonight – Cryptonight v7 – Cryptonight-Heavy (Bixbite, Sumocoin) – New Stellite – New Haven – IPBC, Alloy – Cryptonight Lite – Cryptonight Lite v7 Performance wise the miner does seem to do pretty well compared to other alternatives, though do note that the BXB-Miner is still in early beta, so there is a more work…

New Bminer 9.0.0 With Faster Bytom (BTM) Mining Support

New Bminer 9.0.0 With Faster Bytom (BTM) Mining Support
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

WE have already covered the Bminer mining software, though lately it wasn’t so interesting with only Equihash and then Ethash support, even the dual-mining option did not help much as there are already moving to the ASIC miner domain. The latest version 9.0.0 of Bminer however adds something new and interesting, we are talking about experimental Bytom (BTM) mining support for Nvidia GPUs and the performance is really good when things work. We are seeing significantly better results with the new Bminer 9.0.0 compared to the already available NebuTech BTMiner On Nvidia GPU Mining Rigs… we are talking 50% faster performance on GTX 1080 Ti. The drawback here however is that since it is still experimental it may not work on all mining pools, but if you are interested in BTM and are mining it, then you should give it…

Hi, I have two Antminer s7’s but power is too expensive here in Australia for mining to be profitable.

Genesis Mining is Back With Bitcoin Cloud Mining Offers

Genesis Mining is Back With Bitcoin Cloud Mining Offers
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

One of the world’s largest crypto cloud mining provider is offering Bitcoin cloud mining contracts again after a few months without the option to buy BTC cloud mining contracts. The new contracts do not seem to be that attractive price wise, even though they are for 5 years duration and will not get cancelled even if they become unable to pay for the maintanance fees for the duration of the contract. The most interesting thing here according to the company is the reduction of the maintenance fee to as low as $0.14 USD per THS per day for all new mining capacities as well as the ability to also mine natively Bitcoin Cash (BCH) with any purchased hashrate. You can easily check if this is a good deal or not for you if you run the numbers in a mining…

Mining Bytom (BTM) With NebuTech BTMiner On Nvidia GPU Mining Rigs

Mining Bytom (BTM) With NebuTech BTMiner On Nvidia GPU Mining Rigs
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

A while ago we have written about the launch of ASIC miners for Bytom (BTM) from Bitmain right in time when Bytom was actually launching their network. The Antminer B3 ASIC miners for Bytom were offering 780 H/s with 360 Watts of power usage and this essentially has made CPU mining pointless right from the start. Since then however there has been some development regarding the use of GPUS and Nvidia ones in particular for mining BTM and surprisingly or not at this point of time you can get better performance from video cards than what the ASICs can provide you with, depending on your mining rigs of course. So if you are interested in mining Bytom (BTM) and have Nvidia-based mining rigs you might be interested to give this a go. Currently it may not be that profitable, but…

New EWBF Cuda Equihash Miner v0.1 For GPU Mining

New EWBF Cuda Equihash Miner v0.1 For GPU Mining
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

The official Equihash algorithm (equihash 200,9) as used by ZCash (ZEC) may have moved in the domain of ASIC miners, but that does not mean that a modified version of algorithm cannot be still used by other coins and be GPU mined. An example is the Bitcoin GOld (BTG) that is forking to Equihash-BTG (equihash 144,5) and other coins like BitcoinZ (BTCZ) that are forking to equihash 144,5 both of which are not ASIC mineable with Equihash ASIC miners due to the different parameters from the “original” Equihash that uses 200,9. Generally these two variations do require much more video memory in order to work and also the performance in terms of hashrate is significantly lower than that of the original Equihash parameters, so it is hard to make ASIC miners for them. EWBF, whose original Equihash miner was one…

The website BitcoinWisdom has been available for a lot of time and many people that have been into crypto long term have used it or are even still using it, however it seems that the support and updates of that website have been missing for a long time. It seems that somebody has cloned the original Bitcoin Wisdom and has provided an alternative that brings most of the functionality of the original website and everything works better with more exchanges and trading pairs. The new BitcoinWisdom.io website lists data from Bitfines, Bithumb, Binance, WEX, Exmo and GDAX and there are a lot of crypto trading pairs available from the supported exchanges, so you might want to check it out.

Does somebody still remember the Gridseed ASIC miners that could dual-mine BTC and LTC a few years ago? Well, it seems that a new dual mining ASIC miner is coming from Baikal Miner that is capable of mining two different algorithms at the same time. The new Baikal Miner BK-D supports Blake256R14 or Blake256R8 as first algorithm with 280 GHS hashrate and LBRY or Pascal as second algorithm with 70 GHS. You can have the miner mine any of the two pairs of algorithms simultaneously at 1100W of power usage total. There is still no information about pricing and availability however, Biakal Miner have just announced their new device and it is yet to even become listed on the official company website. Doesn’t seem like too profitable at the moment, so it is more of an interesting product as we…

Bitcoin Gold’s New Equihash-BTG PoW Algorithm

Bitcoin Gold’s New Equihash-BTG PoW Algorithm
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

Bitmain’s Equihash ASIC miners Z9 mini as well as Innosilicon’s A9 ZMaster are apparently being shipped and are getting into the hands of some users already. This essentially makes mining Equihash with GPUs pointless and not very profitable, so ZCash (ZEC) is already in the territory of ASIC miners, but not all of the crypto coins that used Equihash are going to just move from GPU mining to ASIC miners. Bitcoin Gold (BTG) for example is going to switch to a new proof of work algorithm they call Equihash-BTG which is essentially a modified version of the Equihash algorithm that will not be ASIC mineable. Equihash-BTG is essentially going to fork to a modified version of the Equihash PoW algorithm with parameters that will require significantly more memory thus making ASIC miners harder to be made for it and no…
