Buying directly from Bitmain [serious]

Buying directly from Bitmain [serious]
Source: Mining - reddit.com/r/BitcoinMining

I logged on to bitmain.com. I’m looking to purchase Antiminer S15s to update my miners. Previously I’ve overpaid for my ASICs through eBay and other locations so I figured I’d go directly to the source this time. I’ve made my purchase selections, but according to Bitmain, before they will sell ASICs to me I MUST provide proof of who I am with a Real-ID form of ID. I do have a passport so I do have proof that I am who I believe I am. I’ve verified every step of the way that I’m actually on bitmain.com and not some other spoofed site. I’m really taken aback by Bitmain asking for a picture of my passport. So – all of you miners that mine with Bitmain ASICs – is this normal? submitted by /u/BlueManQuad [link] [comments]

Very hesitant on spending this money but I really want to keep mining and gpu mining is out. I am interested in the Dayun Zig and Innosilicon A9 Z Master. I am open to suggestions concerning what I should try to get. I do not just want to buy Bitcoin or any other coin. I def want to mine I do enjoy it and I feel like it is important to keep doing something I do enjoy . submitted by /u/BPT242 [link] [comments]

I have seen many articles that because of the plunge in price Bitcoin mine Farms are shutting down in China. If this is true, can anybody point me to a place where I could buy this equipment from them?

Hello everyone, I have started my own mining farm, since I live in a developing country and have access to free electricity. I have around 22 Antminer S9’s and 8 Avalon 741 miners, but that is all I can have. I have spent all my budget and for the moment I can’t expend more. Is any one else here in interested in joining me? submitted by /u/hero36 [link] [comments]

Crypto Playing Cards is a new project launched in Switzerland by a cryptocurrency believer, a project that wants to help adoption by getting the general population acquainted with cryptocurrencies. You can use the cards to play Poker, Bridge, Blackjack or just about any card game with the Crypto Playing Cards, they just feature custom crypto art and are not a deck for a special crypto game or something like that. Instead of playing spades, hearts, diamonds or clubs, you’re now playing with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and NEO. Every suit has different dominant colors and each character was specifically designed to proudly represent its cryptocurrency. The playing cards are crafted from premium cardstock and coated with extra smooth finish.

The latest z-enemy 1.26 Nvidia GPU miner comes with additional performance boost in a number of the supported crypto algorithms as well as improved stability. We should note that the latest version also marks the removal of support for the Renesis algorithm, apparently due to the project introducing this algorithm getting abandoned. The new version adds up to +5-7% for X16r and X16s, +7% for Bitcore, few percent for other algorithms such as X17, C11, Aergo … on GTX 10×0 cards. The Hex algorithm gets +10% for GTX 10×0 cards and +2% for RTX 20×0 GPUs as a hashrate boost. The latest z-enemy version 1.26 is available for CUDA 9.1, 9.2 and 10.0 for 64-bit Windows versions as well as CUDA 9.0, CUDA 9.1, CUDA 9.2 and CUDA 10 binaries for Linux (HiveOS, PiMP OS, EthOS & Ubuntu).

Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

More updates fro the CryptoDredge Nvidia GPU miner to version 0.13.0 that comes with support for two new crypto algorithms – X21S and Lyra2vc0ban, as well as some performance improvements and some fixes. The X21S is used by a new project called Ritocoin (RITO) that recently launched, the recent T-Rex 0.8.3 update was the first to add support for this new algorithm and still seems to be slightly faster. Lyra2vc0ban is a new algorithm implemented by the c0ban project as a countermeasure to ASICs for Lyra2REv2. CryptoDredge 0.13.0 comes with performance improvements for the X22i and Skunkhash algorithms, taking the top spot performance wise for X22i from T-Rex, so make sure you switch if mining SUQA at the moment and want to get the best possible performance. There is also a fix implemented for the Exosis and Dedal algorithm when…

NiceHash Has Added Support for Zhash Algorithm (Equihash 144,5)

NiceHash Has Added Support for Zhash Algorithm (Equihash 144,5)
Source: Mining - cryptomining-blog.com

The NiceHash service for leasing and renting crypto hashrate has announced the addition of a new crypto algorithm to their list of supported algos – the Zhash algorithm or Equihash with parameter set 144,5. This algorithm is currently used as a PoW algorithm with Bitcoin Gold (BTG), Anon (ANON) and BitcoinZ (BTCZ) and other projects. The Zhash algorithm works by increasing the hardware requirements of Equihash to make the development of an ASIC appliance less viable and to put back GPU mining in control for the projects using this algorithm. Aside from support for Zhash on the marketplace for hashrate, mining Zhash is also supported through the latest NiceHash Miner Legacy (1.9.0.8) as well as third party miners of course. Another popular service for renting and leasing mining rigs Mining Rig Rentals has been offering Zhash (Equihash 144,5) for quite…

One more fast update to version 0.8.3 for the T-Rex Nvidia GPU miner that adds a new algorithm – X21S. The new X21S algorithm is used by the newly launched Ritocoin (RITO), a fork of Ravencoin (RVN) with modified mining algorithm that consists of 16 shuffled algorithms followed by 5 others. If you are interested you can check RITO out, it was just recently launched and is also mineable on AMD GPUs with the latest WildRig Multi miner. Do note that the T-Rex is a closed source miner with 1% development fee built-in. Also make sure you have a recent video driver installed (the latest for CUDA 10 support) as the binaries for both Linux and Windows are compiled for CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0. – For more information and to download and try the latest version of the T-Rex miner…

The first one is the Dedal algorithm is used by the Numus project, an older crypto project that just forked to a new algorithm, also supported by the recent update of the T-Rex 0.8.2 miner. The second new algorithm is called Pipe and is used by a new project launched earlier this month called UOU – a p2p crypto message pipe system based on decentralized network. You might want to check both projects out and decide for yourself if it is worth mining any of the coins supported with the latest update, with the current low profit trying with some alternatives might not be a bad idea.

Another fast update to version 0.8.2 for the T-Rex Nvidia GPU miner that brings support for a new algorithm – Dedal, adds some extra hashrate for X22i and fixes the skunkhash performance issue introduced in the previous release 0.8.1. The new Dedal algorithm is used by the Numus project, not a new crypto, just forked to a new algorithm from Skein as it became available for ASIC mining. The extra boost of 1-3% for X22i makes the new T-Rex miner even faster and still best performer for SUQA mining that uses this particular algorithm. Do note that the T-Rex is a closed source miner with 1% development fee built-in.
