How To Mine Etheruem With An Nvidia Gpu (and Siacoin, Decred, Lbry, Or Pascal) Steemcreated With Sketch.

How to mine Etheruem with an Nvidia GPU (and Siacoin, Decred, Lbry, or Pascal) Since cryptocurrencies have risen exponentially in the past few months people want in. And one of the best ways to make money with currencies like Ethereum and Bitcoin is to 'mine' them. When you mine a cryptocurrency you are running a program on your computer to use your computers computing power on the network. Whenever your computer solves a piece of the puzzle, a block in the blockchain, your miner is rewarded. There are two main ways to mine: Rent out miners. I will not be covering this topic today. I will go through start to finish on how to set up an Ethereum miner on Ubuntu. This is because if you are mining with an Nvidia Graphics card the windows drivers are a little wonky so you will be limiting your hashrate. For me I have 2 GTX 980ti's in my gaming computer. When I mine Ethereum on windows I get around 5 Mh/s and when I mine on Ubuntu I get 40 Mh/s. For those of you with gaming computers this can be a nice passive source of income while you aren't playing games. If you have AMD GPU's I would suggest looking at this guide here . If you want to dual-boot and not just clean install you will need this step. Right click on the windows start menu, on the bottom left and select 'Disk Management'. Select your main HDD or SSD that you want to dual boot from, right click on it and press 'Shrink'. I suggest using at least 32gb just to be safe. You can either dual boot your computer or run a clean install. To do this you will need a USB drive. Download the Linux Live application. Continue reading >>

Mining Ethereum On Ubuntu With A Gtx 1070

Mining Ethereum On Ubuntu With A Gtx 1070

Mining Ethereum on Ubuntu with a GTX 1070 This article originally appeared on Joshua Powers blog Ethereum has appeared more and more in the news and rightfully so. Ethereum recently set another transaction record of 400,000 transactions in a single day . Then the recent drama of the Bitcoin split has caused even more attention to Ethereum as an alternative. If you are unfamiliar with other Blockchain or Ethereum check out the following articles: I thought it would be interesting to see what it takes to mine Ethereum. Ethereum is another crypto currency, similar to bitcoin. Before starting if you are unfamiliar with either cryptocurrencies in general or ethereum consider reading the articles below. My post is not meant to be an overview of either, but rather how I got mining Ethereum going on Ubuntu. Currently there does not appear to be any Ethereum packages in the Ubuntu archive. However, there is a PPA for Ethereum that is available for all supported releases of Ubuntu. Inside is a package called etherum, which is a metapackage to install all the relevant software. Both the PPA and package can be installed via the following: ~ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ethereum/ethereum -y~ sudo apt update~ sudo apt install ethereum -y Once installed the next step is to get a wallet address. You can create this by using geth, which is a go-lang based ethereum command line interface. Geth will ask you to create a passphrase, which you must use and not forget. ~ geth account new WARN [08-13|16:57:51] No etherbase set and no accounts found as default Your new account is locked with a password.

Ethereum Mining Benchmark With 1x Nvidia Gtx 1080 & Ubuntu 16.04.2

I decided to find out if I could get better ethereum mining performance from a Linux system instead of Windows. If you came across my other article: Ethereum mining benchmark with 1x Nvidia GTX 1080 & Windows 10 , I was getting around 16MH/s 20MH/s with everything set to default.

Getting Started Mining Ethereum On Ubuntu (january2017)

Getting Started Mining Ethereum On Ubuntu (january2017)

If wishes were fishes, we would all cast nets Getting Started mining Ethereum on Ubuntu (January2017) This is an explanation for Linux/Ubuntu Distribution. I found a few resources and after enough digging I was able to repeat the process multiple times. Step 1) Prepare your Linux/Ubuntu distro: This link will give you the most updated version available. When installing ubuntu/linux, it will use standard drivers, we want the cutting edge. Be sure to install the proper architecture, distro, and version and choose This is because it will download and install as necessary. You dont have to download the whole package first. sudo apt-get install software-properties-common The video drivers wont be updated until reboot and at this point the best/wisest choice is to give your computer a clean start. The way cryptocurrency mining works is you have to be 100% up to date to mine. But to avoid any cheats, you have to know literally EVERY exchange ever made in the currency. So obviously this will take time. Thank god for the new fast action. It has to catch up all in one go, so dont stop the instance. Incase an old slow instance was run (This is 2017, there is over 30GB of data to download unless you call fast so be wise) remove the old database: If you are caught up and are running a new instance of watching the blockchain: The -G flag is for mining with the graphics card. The -M flag is for testing Once you see how you do if you are ready to mine: Obviously ethminer -G by itself is pretty stupid. At this point look into pools. usually you give up about 0.1% of your work for a bigger payout because you are working in a team setting. This is up to your discretion but this tutorial is done.

Mine Etherium With Ethminer On Ubuntu

Mine Etherium With Ethminer On Ubuntu

Digital cryptocurrency is not a new topic in the technology world due to its widespread usage. For some time, bitcoin has been widely regarded as the king of the cryptocurrency, but now it has been challenged by another aspirational cryptocurrency that is getting a huge attention from investors and professional miners. It even at the moment goes head to head with bitcoins even though its creators claim it as complementary within the cryptocurrency realm. So, this new cryptocurrency is known as Ether . Figure 1 Credits to That being said it is actually used to fuel this ecosystem known as Ethereum . Ethereum is a decentralized platform with its block chain for its apps to function, and these apps are powdered by these tokens known as ether. So basically ether may or may not be used as a currency, but rather as a fuel to power the Ethereum ecosystem, however its widely used as fungible currency as an alternative to bitcoins. Furthermore, like Bitcoins, Ethereum can be mined, and this process is known as mining ether. Even though the term Ethereum is used interchangeably, its more appropriate to use the term ether as its actually mined through this process. Ether can be mined with either CPU or GPU , and there are many miners around the world developed by various professionals specifically for this purpose only. The mined tokens then can be stored in wallets, which then can be exchanged or consumed to fuel the app running on Ethereum ecosystem. This articles demonstrates how to make use of Ethminer which is used to mine ether with the help of a GPU. Ethminer is an open source cross platform application developed specifically for mining ether, and makes use of OpenCL, and Nvidia CUDA technologies for mining purposes. It also supports stratum protocol which is used for pool Continue reading >>

Ethereum is not yet another Bitcoin clone though, sinceit has an additional feature called Smart Contracts that makes it unique andvery promising. I am not going into details how Ethereum works, you can get thatinto great detail on the Internet. This post is about Ethereum mining. Mining ishow crypto coins are created. You need to spent computing time to get coins out.At the beginning CPU mining was sufficient, but as the Ethereum networkdifficulty has increased you need to use GPUs as they can calculate at a muchhigher hashrate than a general purpose CPU can do. About 2 months ago I bought a new gaming rig, with a Nvidia GTX 1070 so I canexperience virtual-reality gaming with a HTC Vive at a great framerate. As itturns out modern graphics cards are very good at hashing so I gave it a spin. Initially I did this mining setup with Windows 10, as that is the operatingsystem on my gaming rig. If you want to do Ethereum mining using your GPU, thenyou really want to use Linux. On Windows the GTX 1070 produced a hashrate of 6MH/s (megahashes per second) while the same hardware does 25 MH/s on Linux. Th Continue reading >>

Nvidia/cuda Ethminer Setup Under Ubuntu Server 16.04 Github

Nvidia/cuda Ethminer Setup Under Ubuntu Server 16.04 Github

A couple of weeks ago, I decided I should put my gaming rig to work crypto mining. I did not expect to make any significant profit on this, it was more of a fun project to set up. However, there were a large number of tutorials and guides already out there, and many were more than a year out of date. This guide assumes the reader already has a crypto wallet set up, is comfortable with Linux and the command line, and knows how to use Google if they run into problems. The end result is an Ubuntu 16.04 LTS headless server running CUDA ethminer via systemd. plus a case, RAM, SSD/HDD, etc., the usual. The GTX 970 is a decent card - not the best for mining, but it's what I have. The Intel processor is way overkill and is basically idle when mining in CUDA mode. In OpenCL mode, one virtual core is pegged at 100%. Hence, CUDA. I'm running Ubuntu Server 16.04 (LTS) on this machine. Most folks seem to use Windows for mining, but I'd rather not have to deal with the random Windows Update-induced restarts and other miscellaneous annoyances that come bundled with it. Installing Ubuntu is outside of the scope of what I'm willing to write here, you can check the official documentation . I installed the base packages, build essentials and OpenSSH Server packages as this will be a headless build. I did need to initially hook up a monitor to perform the installation, but once SSH was up and running this was no longer necessary. Also note that I did not install X11 or any form of GUI. This is not required here, unless you want to overclock your GPUs using nvidia-settings (see #Overclocking ). Once Ubuntu was installed I grabbed the official nVidia driver from their website . You need to select "Show More Operating Systems" to select Linux 64-bit, then you can select your particular graph Continue reading >>

Ubuntu 16.04 Lts + Nvidia Mining Setup Script With Lastest Cuda Optimizations - Ethermining

Ubuntu 16.04 Lts + Nvidia Mining Setup Script With Lastest Cuda Optimizations - Ethermining

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS + Nvidia Mining setup script with lastest CUDA optimizations This has been deprecated. New release is out. Many improvements. Fully automated. Script works great for me, I was having so much trouble figuring out how to get a miner set up, thanks! Thanks. I'm about to setup a Linux system, this should come in handy. Your welcome. I tear down my systems so much I needed an quick way to get up and going, so I wrote this. I hope to improve it soon, so you don't have to manually restart the script after a reboot but that makes it magnitudes harder to write cleanly. I've posted a much improved script on a new thread, please be sure to check it out. Pretty sure the latest stable nvidia driver is 381 or 382. Unfortunately 375 wont work with the 1080 Ti. 375.66 is the current Long Lived version for LTS distributions. 381 is available for non LTS distributions via typical ppa/repo. 375.66 (current version in repo) supports the 1080ti. Do Nvidia cards need to be unlocked or should script work out of a box? The script takes care of everything as long as you don't mind running it 3 times (before and after 2 reboots / Possibly only one reboot). 3rd) run script, should see ethminer start, this means its done. It will stop running after 90 minutes. Then you can run it by calling ethminer from the command line. You can check the overclock is working in the Nvidia GUI controls, memory offset will say 500 and you should see a bit more Mh/s from stock memory speed. The overclock is fairly conservative. I use 800 on mine. Overclocking does not survive reboots. If you don't know how to do it manually you can just run the script again, it will skip everything but the overclocking, No rebooting or anything required.

Build Your Own Ethereum Mining Rig, Part 2: Linux Setup

Build Your Own Ethereum Mining Rig, Part 2: Linux Setup

April 06, 2017 CryptoBadger 558 Comments In this second installment of our DIY Ethereummining guide, well look at how to install and configure Linux to setup your rig as an automated, remotely-manageable appliance. Dont be dissuaded if youve never used Linux beforeour step-by-step guide makes it simple! Why Linux over Windows? First, its freeand saving ~$100 on the operating system is a big plus when youre trying to maximize profitability. Other reasons include lesser hardware requirements (Linux is perfectly happy runningfrom a USB stick plugged into ancient hardware!), simpler remote administration capabilities, and oftentimes better stability. The downside of running Linux is that videodriver support isnt on the same level as Windows, and things like GPU undervoltingare trickier (but still possible via BIOS mods ). If you missed the hardware portion of our guide, make sure to check it out first . Otherwise, read on. Build an EthereumMining Rig, part 2: Linux Setup The followingis heavily adapted from my original 2013 Litecoin mining guide, updated for the latest Xubuntu LTS version, the new AMDGPU-PROdrivers, and necessary ethereum mining software (all up-to-date as of 11/29/2017).If youre a bit nervous because youve a complete Linux newbie, dont be. Simply follow the step-by-step instructions exactly as theyre written, and youll be fine. Even if youve never done anything like this before, you should be up and running in roughlyan hour. Before we even get to Linux, lets take a minute to make sure that your mining computers BIOS settings are in order. Power on your computer, and press the delete key a few times immediately after power on. You should end up in the BIOS configuration area. Do the following, then save & exit: Change power options so that the computer au Continue reading >>

Mining Ethereum On Ubuntu With Ethminer

Mining Ethereum On Ubuntu With Ethminer

Although mining Ethereum is way easier on Windows (just keep bashing next in a few installers), there is probably a Hashrate improvement when you're using a Linux as your driver. Moreover, it's way more bad ass. In this example I'm showing the simple steps on how to get started with GPU-Mining, by manually building Ethminer and setting it up to mine using Ethereumpool (although it'll work for other pools too). Mining will shorten the lifetime of your hardware and causes your PC to use more power, thus driving up your electricity bill. Also, you might lose all the money you invest. Thus, use your brain! You, and only you, are responsible for any damage done to you, your hardware or financially. apt-get install opencl-amdgpu-pro-icd cmake git mesa-common-dev ethminer -G -t 1 -F apt-get install nvidia-cuda-toolkit cmake git mesa-common-dev ethminer -U -t 1 -F Bitcoin uses the Hashcash algorithm to verify transactions, which is a relatively simple calculation, which has been put on ASIC's that are capable of outperform many GPU's. Ethereum however, uses the Ethash algorithm , which is set up in such a way that it requires a big amount of Memory. This makes it very hard to transfer the algorithmonto ASIC's but makes GPU's the best method of mining it. As a result, the difficulty of mining Ethereum increases much slower than that of other currencies using the Hashcash algorithm. Furthermore, it's optimized for mining with GPU's only and it even works when you're using an NVidia card, although AMD probably gives you a bigger bang for the buck. Since Ethereum is optimized for GPU mining, one or more nice GPU's are great. Again, it doesn't matter if it's NVidia or AMD, though I suggest using the latter. Also, you need a Wallet to provide your unique Ether-address. Personally I Continue reading >>

Gtx1070 Linux Installation And Mining Clue (goodbye Amd, Welcome Nvidia For Miners)

Gtx1070 Linux Installation And Mining Clue (goodbye Amd, Welcome Nvidia For Miners)

Down download the latest driver *367.27* and install that too bash NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-367.27.run (say yes on everything, ignore the loading error) Now you should got the driver running, check that with nvidia-smi. If you see all your cards AND the version driver you installed your good. We're going for Cudaminer from Genoil (1.1.5) however somewhere in the cuda framework is a hardcoded detection of loaded drivers which isn't working (for us) but there is an easy fix for this and you want to do this because OpenCL mining with the GTX1070 is not very stable (i never got it running longer then 4 hours with the kernel dying on me). Its the brute solution, but it works for me: cd /lib/modules/4.2.0-38-generic/updates/dkms/ cmake -DBUNDLE=cudaminer -DCOMPUTE=61 .. (you will get a warning that libOpenCL might be unsafe/hidden, but i just ignored that and it works fine for me) The libs are now installed in /usr/local/lib, i am lazy (prolly an argument to fix that) but they should be in /usr/lib so i just move them: if it says 0.9.41-genoil-1.x.x TWICE (first and last lines) your good, else you get it ONCE at the first line and perhaps an error.
