Need a good mining pool to join
Source: Mining - reddit.com/r/BitcoinMining

I want to join a btc mining pool. i am only doing it casually, and im not going to spent any money on it. are there any good mining pools that are free and that don’t require you to have an ASIC miner? I would also prefer it to work with BFG miner, but if it only works with something else i am fine with that too. Thanks. submitted by /u/cargiefan999 [link] [comments]

New NebuTech BTMiner 8.0 for Bytom (BTM) With Better Performance
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

The latest release of the NebuTech BTMiner Nvidia GPU miner version 8.0 for mining Bytom (BTM) claims once more the top spot in terms of performance with the ongoing competition with Bminer. The latest NebuTech miner comes with higher hashrate by 10-15% over the previous release and improved pool efficiency, so you should be getting even better results with it. We remind you that the NebuTech BTMiner is a closed source Bytom (BTM) GPU miner for Nvidia CUDA that is available for both Windows and Linux operating systems and it has a 3% developer fee built-in. The full changelog of the new NebuTech BTMiner 8.0 is available below, but the performance improvements are pretty much the most important ones anyway in our opinion. NebuTech BTMiner 8.0 Changelog: – Improved hashrate 10% – 15%. – Lower skipped share rate, increase actual…

U.S.-based graphics processing unit (GPU) manufacturer Nvidia stocks fell after announcing its third-quarter estimates, MarketWatch reported August 16. The firm’s revenue was affected by a decrease in crypto mining as digital currency markets slumped earlier this year. The company reported that crypto mining sales were significantly lower than expected in Q2, adding that it does not expect to make significant blockchain-related sales for the rest of the year. submitted by /u/Klancepaul [link] [comments]

WildRig – A New AMD/Nvidia GPU Miner for the Wild Keccak Algorithm

WildRig – A New AMD/Nvidia GPU Miner for the Wild Keccak Algorithm
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

WildRig is a relatively new closed source miner for both AMD OpenCL and Nvidia CUDA GPU miners for the Wild Keccak algorithm used by crypto coins such as Boolberry (BBR) or PURK. It seems to be performing better on Nvidia hardware compared to ccMiner’s performance for Wild Keccak, though on AMD it may not be faster than other alternative miners available. Do note that since this is a closed source miner it also comes with a 2% developer fee built-in, so that fact can make all the difference depending on your hardware if it is worth using the miner or not. Since it is a specific miner for a specific algorithm it offers some extra features and improvements that may make it more problem-free or useful for mining Wild Keccak, though there are not much coins out there that actually…

New Faster z-enemy 1.16 Nvidia GPU Miner With Extra Performance

New Faster z-enemy 1.16 Nvidia GPU Miner With Extra Performance
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

There is a new zealot/enemy-1.16 (z-enemy) miner update from Dk and Enemy that adds additional performance improvements to a number of the supported algorithms by the software. There are extra 7-10% performance improvement to the newly added HEX mining algorithm recently introduced by the XDNA project as well as 5-7% increase in hashrate for the X16R and X16S mining algorithms. The X17, X11, Sonoa, Renesis and Aergo crypto algorithms have also received a smaller, but still a few percent improvement in the latest release. As far as the improved performance in the algorithm used by Renessis (RESS), it still needs a bit of catching up to what the latest T-Rex 0.5.7 miner provides in terms of performance. As an experimental feature the intensity limit has been increased to 25 and most supported algorithms should be capable of handling it to…

Updated Bminer 10.1.0 With a Small Fix Regarding Bytom (BTM) Mining

Updated Bminer 10.1.0 With a Small Fix Regarding Bytom (BTM) Mining
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

A quick updated to the recently released Bminer 10.0.0 regarding Bytom (BTM) has been released. The new version addresses a problem with performance degradation over time when mining BTM, so that should not be an issue anymore. Currently Bminer is the fastest Bytom (BTM) miner out there, though sadly it offers only limited pool support, so you cannot use it on all of the available big pools and that limits its usability… something that also needs addressing in our opinion. So if you are mining BTM with Bminer, then it will be a wise idea to update and get the performance fix. We remind you that Bminer is a closed source Nvidia GPU miner available for Linux and Windows in the form of pre-compiled binaries and that there is a 2% development fee for Bytom (BTM), Equihash and Zhash coins,…

Which ASIC miner?

Which ASIC miner?
Source: Mining - reddit.com/r/BitcoinMining

I’m looking at either a A9 zmaster, or a Whatsminer DCR. https://www.asicminervalue.com/ The A9 is out now, well reviewed and seems to be holding up well. It mines zcash. The Whatsminer in the link above comes out in November. The site above claims it will be more profitable, but without it being released yet that’s hard for me to count on. Also it mines Decred, which I am learning more about. What kind of advice can you give an ASIC noob looking to make his first purchase? Is it risky buying something that’s not out yet, or is Whatsminer a good enough brand that I shouldn’t ha e I worry? Thoughts on DCR? Increasing difficulty for the A9? Concerns about starting right now in general? I appreciate your insight. submitted by /u/qualityassurence [link] [comments]

Hive OS 2.0 Public Testing Before Going Live

Hive OS 2.0 Public Testing Before Going Live
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

Hive OS 2.0 is coming soon and it will apparently replace the existing first version of the Linux-based GPU mining platform. Although the changes are mostly on the web-based front end, so the Linux OS on the rig is not going to need to be necessarily changed initially, although updates with new features to that will probably follow as well. All user accounts are going to be migrated automatically, in fact you can use your existing Hive OS account to login in the Hive OS 2.0 public test website, but after the migration happens any changes in it will be wiped out wit the data from your old Hive OS 1 account. Migration will happen in a couple of days, though no exact date has been announced yet. If you want to move a mining rig to the Hive OS…

New Slightly Faster Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #7 fork of ccminer Available

New Slightly Faster Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #7 fork of ccminer Available
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

Yet another update from sp on his open source and free fork of supminer (ccminer) called Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #7 (source) with a bit more extra performance thanks to optimizations done to hamsi/Echo/echo-simd. The X16S support should be fixed in this release as well as it was broken in the previous, but our quick tests in a few pools show that no shares are being accepted – low difficulty or invalid shares getting reported by the pools, so it may need some more work. The ultimate goal of this miner is apparently to take the top spot in terms of X16x performance from the current leader z-enemy 1.15a and this release is a step closer to that goal. Our tests on GTX 1080 Ti show that Raven x16r/x16s Spmod-git #7 is still a tiny bit behind in terms of pure…

New Bminer 10.0.0 With Faster Bytom (BTM) Performance and Zhash Support

New Bminer 10.0.0 With Faster Bytom (BTM) Performance and Zhash Support
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

It seems now that the fastest Bytom (BTM) mining performance is once again being offered by the latest Bminer 10.0.0, beating what the latest NebuTech BTMiner 7.0 is delivering at the moment. The latest version of Bminer brings substantial increase in BTM mining hashrate of up to 30% over what the previous Bminer 9.1.0 was able to deliver, thus beating the competition with at least 10% on GTX 1080 Ti (percentage can vary depending on your hashrate). Unfortunately it seems that the new version also supports only pools with direct wallet addresses as worker IDs, it does not seem to work with pools that rely on worker usernames and that actually limits the usability of the miner even if it is the fastest performing one you cannot use it on all mining pools. The new Bminer also introduces support for…

New SRBMiner 1.6.6 Cryptonight AMD GPU Miner With Fixes and Improvements
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

There is an update fo rthe popular CryptoNight AMD GPU miner SRBMiner that brings some fixes and improvements, though this time no new algorithms are being added in version 1.6.6. The most interesting new feature in the latest version is the algo/coin switching protocol currently in beta, though you should know that in order for this to work the pool must support it. There is just one pool at the moment that supports the new switching protocol and that one is Monero Ocean that supports 9 different CryptoNight-based coins at the moment. To enable this new mode you need to add the –usealgoswitching parameter in your command line for running the miner. The fee for using the miner in algorithm switching mode is ~0.91%. The only not so great thing about this new feature however is that when a switch…
