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 >>

Ethos + Nvidia Geforce Gtx 1060 6gb - Improve Performance !?

Ethos + Nvidia Geforce Gtx 1060 6gb - Improve Performance !?

First of all I must specified at the beginning that I am a beginner in mining. Second, I have an rig made using ASUS Z270-P as motherboard, 16 GB RAM memory, as operating system I use ethOS, and as GPU I use 4 NVidia from Gigabyte (model 1060 - 6Gb). I use wallet made/create on MyEtherWallet and I mine Ethereum Classic (ETC). As pool I use nanopool.org. The actual performance related to my GPUs (GeForce GTX 1060 6Gb) are resume to 68.1 hash for all 4 GPUs. For this performance I dont change nothing on my default settings. But I want to change the GPUs performance only under-volt and overclock GPUs without using BIOS modded. So, the settings use for mine are: Have somebody any idea about what values I must to add in ethos for my GPUs (NVidia GeForce GTX 1060 6 Gb) to can under-volt my GPUs ? Current I use: But I dont know what values and how to reduce energy consumer for GPUs. I read that this type of GPUs can reach around of 23 Mh/s. Now I obtain only 20 GH/s ! Maybe the energy tune will increase hash and reduce energy consumed. I mine Ethereum Clasic, and I want to mine also Monero. I can use the same values of overclock for more currency ? I waiting with very higher interest any advice with feedback or idea. Continue reading >>

Silent Ethereum Mining On EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 at 22 MH/s Silent Ethereum Mining On EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 at 22 MH/s Posted by Nathan Kirsch | Fri, Jun 16, 2017 - 10:25 AM If you cant find any AMD Radeon RX 480 and Radeon RX 580 video cards to purchase and dont want to pay more for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card that is starting to become scarce on the market you might want to look at the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060. You can still find the GeForce GTX 1060 at retailersand they do pretty decent when it comes to miningEthereum. Earlier this week we showed you that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition had really good hashrate performance of around27 MH/s in stock form and then easily over 30 MH/s with the memory overclocked. Most GeForce GTX 1070 8GB graphics cards are over $400 , so today we are going to be looking at the lower cost GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. This card in-stock for purchase at most retailers and prices start around $249.99 and depending on the model you should have a hashrate of around 18-19 MH/s. Once you overclock the memory you should be able to get the hashrate on the GTX 1060 up to around 22-23 on most cards. With six of these cards in a mining rig you are looking at roughly 135 MH/s for your $1,500-$2,000 investment in buying six GeForce GTX 1060 video cards. If you are lucky you might be able to hit 24 MH/s if you get some decent overclockers! We did some testing on the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 FTW+ 6GB video card on Claymores Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v9.5and got some pretty interesting results that we wanted to share with you. This card is priced at $5.99 shipped , but it uses the same GPU cooler as the lower cost GeForce GTX 1060 6GB SSC gaming. Note that for the Estimated GPU power that we subtracted the overall powe Continue reading >>

Asic Vs. Gpu Mining Rig: What Is Better?

Asic Vs. Gpu Mining Rig: What Is Better?

Bitcoin and Ethereum keep rising, as well as all other cryptocurrencies and the new wave of mining is coming. All of those, who did not become miners in 2017, will undoubtedly try their luck in 2018. All new minors have the same arising question, Is it better to buy ASIC (for example Antminer S9, Antminer L3+) or set up a GPU mining rig (based on NVIDIA GTX 1060 or GTX 1070 for example)?. In this article, based on our experience, we will show you all pros and cons of ASIC and video card rigs. How Much Can I Earn With a GPU Mining Rig? To begin with, lets see how you can calculate the economic profit of ASIC and GPU mining rigs and figure out whats more profitable. Lets open whattomine.com . In the GPU tab, you can choose the video cards you have or that you manually input the data of (hashrate of your rigs). Then press "calculate" and get a table which shows the reward you can get: We can deal with ASIC in the same way: go to the ASIC tab and choose the hashrate of your devices. After pressing calculate: you will get a table with the daily/monthly reward. Based on the obtained data and costs of the mining rig or ASIC you can get the estimated ROI period. Of course, this value is not very precise. Cryptocurrencies are very volatile, and the profit you get could rise or drop on a daily basis. You also shouldnt forget about the network difficulty of the cryptocurrency you are going to mine. The thing is that the total reward the miners get on a daily basis is a constant value if measured in coins of this cryptocurrency. Every day hundreds, thousands of new rigs appear in the world, and we are not the only smart ones here. Mining becomes more and more difficult. Precisely the same way things are with ASIC-devices - the profit you were getting yesterday, today is to share w Continue reading >>

What Is The Best Gpu For Mining Cryptocurrency In 2018

What Is The Best Gpu For Mining Cryptocurrency In 2018

What is the best GPU for mining cryptocurrency in 2018 Now-a-days everyone is talking about Bitcoin. You might have heard a lot of people talking about Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency. Mining cryptocurrencies is one of the best way to earn them. For mining cryptos, you can build GPU mining rig and or use ASIC miners. ASIC miners are powerful and costly. I will recommend you to go for GPU mining rig first and then Buy ASICs ones you will get your ROI. Recently I have published a Profitable mining rig build guide . With good ROI (Return on investment). This article is all about informing you the best GPU for mining cryptocurrencies in 2018. Well, the first question comes into our mind when we decide to mine crypto is, Which is the best GPU for mining? In the beginning, I was also confused while building my first mining rig about which graphic card to be used? I started mining for 8 months, & I have built a number of mining rigs using different graphic cards for different coins. In this article, Im going to help you to choose the best GPU for your mining rig. The first question you should ask yourself is What are your mining goals? To make more profit, Or to mine most of the coins in the shorter time period? Or just for fun? What type of fund you have? A limited budget or unlimited fund??? The answers to these questions will dramatically change the rig you want to build. So onces youve decided your goal, the next step will be to find out the best GPU for your mining rig. Nvidia and AMD are the two companies who make GPUs (Graphics Processing Unit). There are number of companies who manufactures the graphic cards using these GPUs. Such as MSI, ASUS, Gigabyte, Evga, Zotac, etc. There are numbers of different models available in the graphic cards such as AMD RX400 Series Continue reading >>

Justifying Our Budget Mining Rig: 6x 1060 3 Gb

Justifying Our Budget Mining Rig: 6x 1060 3 Gb

Dec 15, 2017 | Cryptocurrency Hardware | 4 comments After getting the 6 GPU Mining Rig build guide done we thought wed up the ante and go for 19 . But, with part shortages causing frustrating shipping commitments, were changing gears. Weve gotten several requests for a budget mining rig build. And, with a lot of people also inquiring about cheaper GPUs, such as Nvidias GeForce 3 GB 1060 cards, we decided wed bite. GeForce 3 GB GTX 1060s are easy enough to get your hands on, and, as far as cheap-but-still-competent goes, theyre definitely worth consideration. First things first. One thing we like so much about CPU and GPU mining (as opposed to ASIC mining) is that it is truly meant to be accessible to all. Ordering ASICs from China with cryptocurrencies isnt straightforward. Building a 6 or 8 GPU beast with the latest-and-greatest components isnt realistic for everyone, especially when getting started. Were doing this build because getting into GPU mining doesnt have to be expensive. Well get plenty of heat saying that we could build a much faster rig. That is true. But, we bet we get more interest in this build than the ones we fire the money cannon at. Why arent 3 GB 1060s as popular as 1070s and 1080s? Most of the rigs we build for people are using cards with 8 GB of video ram or more, mainly GeForce 1070s and 1080s. First, 1070s and 1080s hash faster than 1060s. Lets acknowledge that. But, occasionally the price is right and it seems like you could back up the truck and just get a few extra 1060s to counteract what 1070s can pull off. But, its not that simple. We mentioned 8 GB of video ram above, and theres a reason for it. When mining, the GPUs video ram holds something called the DAG, or Directed Acyclic Graph. Were not going to get into DAGs this much, but just Continue reading >>

6 X Gtx 1060s // Final Mining Rig (buying Parts Tomorrow!)

6 x GTX 1060s // Final Mining Rig (Buying parts tomorrow!) Please review the Stickies pinned at the top. For BADGES please READ the FAQ for DETAILS. Follow @LTTCompute 30 Jan 2016 Please review the various posts pinned at the top of the forum section for lots of good information on basic installs, setup and questions. For BADGES please READ the FAQ for the DETAILS.Also, don't forget to follow @LTTCompute on twitter for random tweets, posts and updates... ya, random! Pretty sure there should be no difference. There might be a slightly slower loading while ethminer builds the dags, but the hash rate is something that is internal to the card. Here are the bandwidth rates for pcie v3.0. So basically the only time you'd be limited is if your memory bandwidth is greater than 985 MB/s and you are sending the data set to the GPU ram (and at that it shouldn't be much of a bottleneck as dag is slightly over 2gb currently). The actual blocks are pretty small. Something like 16mb from what I read. I'm pretty sure the only time you'd be sending those over the pcie bus is when a new block is announced and you discover a block solution. Still pretty new to mining so I may be a bit inaccurate, but this is how I currently understand it to work. I;ve read all that but since i never tried it myself or at least somebody who has tried it tell me the same thing i am still a bit skeptical about it guess there's only one way to finds out It's worth noting that my number for Ethereum is "for the moment". It is expected to slowly but continually rise, until one day you will need more than 4 GB Yeah i've done some research into it and as the DAG file increases, it causes a fair drop in the hashing rate for AMD cards. Pascal cards remain unaffected by this however. RAM: Corsair Vengeance LED 32GB Continue reading >>

I'm Making $2.44 Per Day By Dual Mining Ethereum And Siacoin, And I'm Not Happy Yet!

I'm Making $2.44 Per Day By Dual Mining Ethereum And Siacoin, And I'm Not Happy Yet!

I'm Making $2.44 Per Day By Dual Mining Ethereum and Siacoin, and I'm NOT HAPPY YET! Well, more precisely, yesterday I finallyreceived details orderedfrom Amazon at the start of December - motherboard, processor, power block, graphics card and other, see: Building a 12 GPU Ethereum Mining Rig From Scratch - Part 1: Ordering Details By now all mining operations are run from my living room (instead of office) on a separatemining rig. The total investment as of day: $1,147.00 (not counting in transportation and customs tax, which is about $200). As of writing this, the total time of ROI is 468 days, which is the reason I'm not happy yet with the results. 468 days is more than one year. And that makes me worried as we don't know what will be the future for gpu mining in next 6 months, no to speak 12 months or 468 days. Right now this seems a bit of gambling to me. On the other hand, currently mining operations are performed by just two graphics cards: RadeonRX 560 4GBcard , producing about 10.67MH/s for Ethereumand 85.74MH/s for Siacoindual - mining. EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB , producing just 15.67 MH/s for Ethereumand about86 MH/s for Siacoin When I purchased EVGAGeForceGTX1060 6GBI believed it will have a hashing power of about 22.5 MH/s - having just 15.67 MH/s or about 3/4 from the expected leads me to think either I haven't configured my mining rig right or maybe 15.67 MH/s is the most this card can get. Ihaven't performed any optimization yet, the numbers are straight out of the box, but I believe there is a room for about10% improvementby overclocking BIOS. For mining, I decided to use Simple Mining OS , run from a USB stick. SimpleMining comes with a cost -$2/mo per mining rig. Which is fair IMHO. In coming days I will make an article on how tomine ether on Simple Continue reading >>

Amd Radeon Rx 400 / Rx 500 Will Be No Longer Profitable For Ethereum Mining?

Amd Radeon Rx 400 / Rx 500 Will Be No Longer Profitable For Ethereum Mining?

AMD Radeon RX 400 / RX 500 Will Be no Longer Profitable for Ethereum Mining? AMD Radeon RX 400 / RX 500 Will Be no Longer Profitable for Ethereum Mining? It is not rocket science that the longer a cryptocoin is being mined, the more is the mining difficulty and thus the less is the profitability. In the case with Ethereum, the mining performance decreases over time due to the increase of the DAG file size. More size puts more stress on the mining GPUs, which lowers their efficiency. However, this is only part of the story. The real issue is that a great drop in Ethereum hashrate is expected for Radeon RX 400 / RX 500 series in the next couple of months. By great I mean up to ~30% hashrate drop, which will increase gradually. According to statistics, users mine 30.000 blocks every 4-5 days. This amount of blocks is called a DAG Epoch. Every time we move to the next DAG epoch, the DAG file becomes larger. This means that weaker GPUS will have a harder time handling it. We are currently at DAG epoch #130. Once we hit DAG epoch #150 or so, the increased size of the DAG file will cause RX400 / RX500 GPUs to work with about 30% less efficiency. Since the file size growth is gradual, the performance decrease will be gradual too. To receive the latest updates follow me on social media! Yes, indeed. If you remember, the AMD Radeon R9 280X GPUs suffered from the same kind of hashrate drop past year. Looks like the RX 400 / RX 500 are next in the list. Now, the newer and more powerful cards such as Nvidia Pascal GPUs, as well as the R9 290(x) , / R9 390(x) that feature more video memory (6GB/8GB+) wont be significantly affected. I see the speed drop. I checked possible workarounds, at least for Polaris, they failed. So probably this hashrate drop cannot be fixed, at least on mine Continue reading >>

Best Ethereum Mining Hardware (2018 Updated)

Best Ethereum Mining Hardware (2018 Updated)

Last updated on February 26th, 2018 at 04:04 pm Ethereum (ETH) is a popular choice for graphics card (GPU) miners. In 2018, Ethereum smashed its long-term $400 ceiling, and reached more than $1,000. Ethereums Ethash algorithm is one of many algorithms designed for optimal mining on GPUs. Generally speaking, a GPU is good for mining all GPU-mineable cryptocurrency (including Ethereum Classic , Monero , Zcash , and Vertcoin). This situation gives GPU miners enviable flexibility, in order to be able to switch between over 40 coins that are based on their current profitability. If youre new to mining Ethereum , there are 4 important things you should know: Ethereum intends to switch to a Proof of Stake scheme called Casper. Although this switch has been delayed, its reasonable to expect that it will occur in late 2018. Ethereum mining will no longer be possible after that, unless a hybrid Proof of Work/Proof of Stake model is implemented. If so, rewards to miners will be significantly reduced, with perhaps half of all new coin rewards going to holders instead. Ethereum mining currently requires a GPU with at least 3 gigabytes of Video RAM (VRAM). This VRAM requirement is expected to grow to 4 gigs in 2018. The Ethereum Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) file is stored in VRAM by miners. The DAG grows in size by remaining proportionate to the mining difficulty. About once every epoch (or 30,000 Ethereum blocks), a new DAG is generated, which must be downloaded in order to continue mining. You can view the current epoch and other Ethereum network stats here . (At the time of this writing, the epoch was 162.) Note that the performance of older cards will degrade with each new epoch. Up to a point, more VRAM will also improve performance. The present difference between a 4- and 8-gi Continue reading >>
