Title: Slow PrimeCoin mining on Amazon EC2 Instances?
Post by: Vorksholk on July 07, 2013, 11:21:41 PM
Hello! I got a $0.50/hour high-CPU EC2 instance (XL, which supposedly has 8 cores, all of Intel Xeon E5-2650 style. The max PPS I have seen is 30. It has been running over an hour. My desktop i5-2500k is doing much better. Any ideas? :(

Read the source of the coin to see why.

Perhaps higher clock rate is just better.

Fuck you and your EC2 instance. Use a regular system like everyone else.

Yeah, I have it running on a ton of other hardware too. EC2 just seemed like a nice system to mine this with. Entropy is too low, and I haven't tried getting direct access to the hardware for better random number generation with something like rngd. Maybe this afternoon. :)

"like everyone else." are you trying to make me laugh til I shit blood? Botnets and Amazon instances is 90% of this coin.

If you shit blood when you laugh, it's time to see a doctor, mate.

EDIT: And it's not really botnet mineable until someone makes a standalone CPU miner, dipshit.

Not true, there is a script here for you to run the daemon with that would work fine for a botnet.  It automatically sends all mined funds to your address

It's not clear yet whether paying those hourly prices to mine the coins is even profitable.
