Hello BitcoinMining people, English is no my first language so please grammar nazi go easy on me! I’m a Bitcoin enthusiast, I don’t know much about mining to be honest and I would like to start mining soon. But I have a few questions before jumping into this adventure. Before starting my plan is to buy an S9 Antminer to start with and maybe get a few more in a near future. My outlets are pulling 110v but on my receptacle I can read 110v-240v 15amp. I know that it’s preferable to mine on 240v, can I just change the voltage of my receptacle or I need to change it completely? Can the power supply that I would buy with the S9 do it? If yes any preferences? Any recommendations on how to do the best V/W/A setup is more…

I currently have 64 Avalon a740’s running in a warehouse and as its getting hotter (here in Indianapolis) the miners are running around 47-48 degree’s C. Avalon says they shouldn’t be running anywhere hotter than 40 and I want to follow that. I was hoping someone could give me advice as I want to continue mining as much bitcoin as possible during the spring and summer (Looking at another building as I know the current one is not perfect but it is cheap to rent I just need some easy and cheap solution for spring and part of summer) here is a link to my setup: https://youtu.be/idFQxI48T-Y (I’m not opposed to paying someone for good advice) submitted by /u/mrjessup44 [link] [comments]

I’ve just ordered a brand new S9, but it did not include a power supply. I’m looking for recommendations for a 110v power supply that is relatively quiet. I know these things are noisy no matter what, but even a few decibels helps! thanks submitted by /u/BlueManQuad [link] [comments]

Source: Mining - reddit.com/r/BitcoinMining

I’ve been considering buying a S9 from bitmain with the hope of mining for a while and then selling it to some lunatic that will pay me more than I purchased it for. My only real concern is if there is a new miner on the rise that will replace the s9 anytime soon. Anybody know about any that are vastly better? I’ve heard that the asics are getting so small that they can’t really get any smaller. submitted by /u/PM_ME_YOUR_DMT_TRIP [link] [comments]

So apparently for the past month or so my gas in my house had been turned off. I never noticed this as I always have hot water in the shower and hot water in my sink curious with my oven didn’t turn on for some reason I call and realized it shut off my gas and as a result I would not have hot water I put two into together and realized running my bitcoin miners in my garage with my water heater kept my hot water tank at 100° give or take so thanks to bitcoin mining I didn’t pay my gas bill nor did I need it for my winter months submitted by /u/firl21 [link] [comments]

Source: Mining - reddit.com/r/BitcoinMining

This post is just for general information. I know it comes up here and there about how much data or bandwidth a miner uses. I cannot get internet where I live, but I wanted to run miners. I had an S1 from a few years back, at a time when I had good wifi and a hard wire connection. I plugged it in and was able to connect to it and get it mining through my phones hotspot (The s1 miner has wifi capability). I also downloaded datally to monitor data usage. So I found out after a few weeks of running that the 180gh/s s1 miner uses 20mb per day. Which is kind of neat just to have an actual number. So I bought three s9 miners and they arrived a few weeks ago. However I still do not…

Dogethereum (DOGX), an Upcoming Unofficial DogeCoin (DOGE) Fork

Dogethereum (DOGX), an Upcoming Unofficial DogeCoin (DOGE) Fork
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

It seem that lately it is easier to just fork an established coin than to think of something new and original and try to realize your ideas, after all who refuses free money, right? The next in line is DOGE with an upcoming unofficial fork called Dogethereum (DOGX) that is apparently planned for the end of the year. Dogethereum (DOGX) as the name implies will be using the mining algorithm used by Ethereum – Ethash (Dagger-Hashimoto) and the owners of DOGE will receive the same amount of DOGEX coins after the fork as what they had in DOGE. There are not much details about the fork announced at the moment, besides some basic information and the intent to fork the coin, so it might as well not happen. We’ll have to wait and see, though we suspect there might be…

CryptUnit is an interesting new service offering up to date data for Cryptonote-based altcoins that you can mine, giving you profitability information along with more details about each of the supported coins. You just need to enter your Cryptonight hashrate and the service will calculate what is the most profitable coin to mine at the moment and give you some extra useful information such as pools and exchanges if you are not familiar with the coin. Of course profitability varies all the time, so things change and the most profitable coins vary all the time. Currently the service covers 16 different Cryptonote coins that can be mined with CPU or GPU (both AMD and Nvidia). The people most interested in this service are probably going to be the ones with AMD-based video cards especially RX VEGA 56/64 due to their…

We have been following the development of the browser and the evolution of the Brave Payments for quite a while now and this blog has been a verified Brave publisher for almost a year now.

It seems that Gigabyte is getting more serious in trying to get more of the mining market share for motherboards after they have left AsRock to dominate the mining motherboard market for a long time. They even lost positions to their main competitor – Asus and many other smaller manufacturers that entered the mining market. Gigabyte has been trying to get back on track with the last year’s release of the affordable Gigabyte GA-H110-D3A 6x PCI-E GPU Mining Motherboard and now it seems the company is also targeting the market for more than 6/8/9 GPUs on a single motherboard as well with their new Gigabyte GA-B250-FinTech motherboard for up to 12 video cards. The new mining motherboard is based on the Intel B250 Express Chipset and is meant for use with Intel LGA1151 processors and DDR4 system memory. It comes…

First Impressions form the ASUS Mining P104 4G GPU
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

Lately it has been quite hard to get access to or even buy higher-end GPUs used for mining, even at unreasonably high prices it is not always easy, but we finally managed to get our hands on a Nvidia P104-100 based GPU from ASUS to play a bit with it. The new P104-100 is certainly a bit different approach from Nvidia for a mining GPU when compared to the previous version P106-100 that wasn’t much different than a consumer GTX 1060. The new P106-100 is essentially the GPU found inside a GTX 1070, but with a different memory configuration, so it is not essentially a GTX 1070 rebrand with limited warranty and no video outputs. You get 4GB GDDR5X video memory that is apparently optimized for mining with a 256-bit memory bus, finally something done properly on a mining GPU,…

Claymore’s Dual ETH GPU Miner v11.0 Now Available

Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

Claymore has released an update to his popular Ethereum dual miner for AMD and Nvidia GPUs with some new interesting and useful features as well as some small improvements. The new version 11 comes with two new algorithms that can be used in dual mining mode along with Ethereum or any other Ethash-based coin, these are Blake2s and Keccak. Another importan change is the reduced developer fee for dual mode that is now at 1.5% and the removal of the dev fee completely for video cards with just 2GB of video memory (you cannot mine ETH/ETC with these anymore, but the miner will work with other forks). The “-asm 2” option value now supports Tahiti, Tonga, Ellesmere, Baffin AMD GPUs and in some cases it can be a bit faster in ETH-only mode, so you can give it a try…

The demand for Bitcoin mining hardware seems to causing some strange decisions among the ASIC manufacturers and one such is apparently the announcement of the Bitmain Antminer V9. A small 4 THS SHA256 ASIC miner that uses 1 KW of power, so not very efficient, but it comes cheap at just $345 USD. There are already some speculations that this could as well be old hardware renamed and refurbished as a new product to clear up some old mining hardware used by Bitmain in their mining farms in China instead of having to relocate it to a new place. This batch has a MOQ (minimum order quantity) of 5 units and all ordered quantities can only be multiples of 5 (10, 15, 20 units and so on) with the maximum number of units in a single order up to 300….
