Title: Crabcoins.com - New Crypto Currency Mining Information - Not just a calculator
Post by: paxpelus on March 06, 2014, 09:36:21 AM
Crabcoins is a coin comparisson tool that informs you on the profitability of each coin vs Litecoin

http://www.crabcoins.com

No registration is required and ofcourse it is free for anyone.

Features

- Instant update when difficulty/reward/price changes
- Profit calculator. Check your earnings per day, week, month, year. We also calculate the power cost for you. You can save all this data so you don't need to enter them again.
- Select on which BTC price to calculate profits. We gather prices from Coinbase, BTC-e, Bitstamp, Vircurex.
- Find out about every coin we support and you can check some graphs per coin (Price/Reward/Difficulty) on a 30 day range.
- We support 22 coins and more are added weekly.

What makes us different is

- We do not read blockchains. We gather all data from the wallets/daemons of each coin. This means we are the most reliable.
- We post an update at the moment we discover one. This means that we are the fastest.
- We inform you on last update timestamp per coin so you can easily check when the coin last updated.

Future updates

- We will provide an API so you can get the prices in JSON format.
- Update webpage through AJAX.
- Better caching
- Better graphs
- Realtime cryptocurrencies news
- We will try to support every cryptocoin available

We appreciate any help to fill in any gaps to our tables and to expand our future updates list. Any constructive criticism is very welcome to improve this as an every day tool.

is it possible to add profitability from autoswitching pools? a lot of time I'd like to know whether it is more profitable to stay on an auto pool or to go mine a particular altcoin myself

Could you please explain a little better.
What means "profitability of autoswitching pools".

Typically, autoswitching multicoin pool should just choose the most profitable coin by itself.
But not necessarily.
Those pools usually take much more important things into account (pool hashrate, orpans count on particular currency, etc, etc)

My suggestion :)

can you?
add Kraken BTC price as well on the "Current Bitcoin Value"
add EUR currency on the right side that we can change it form USD to EUR
and maybe add link to this forum on the webpage

I have also small problems with webpage on the mobile devices..

but in general, great work and keep on going :P

VertCoin? :)


Title: Re: Crabcoins.com - New Crypto Currency Mining Information - Not just a calculator
Post by: sadew on March 10, 2014, 02:15:44 PM
VertCoin? :)

Unfortunately no.

VertCoin do have a different hashing alg (Adaptive-N-Factor), so it cannot be measured correctly against other scrypt alt currencies.
It requires a modified cgminer, and your normal hashrate will actually drop at least 50% (due to a memory requirements).

But thanks for feedback.

We're thinking on a best way to present all the variety of currencies with a different hashing functions (Quark, etc).

Post by: nem2k on March 15, 2014, 10:04:17 AM
any chance you could add other exchanges on there? for example, bitfinex and cavirtex?


Title: Re: Crabcoins.com - New Crypto Currency Mining Information - Not just a calculator
Post by: paxpelus on March 15, 2014, 10:44:03 AM
We plan to add what our users need wherever this is possible. We will take a look at the exchanges you proposed and if they have an API we will surely add them.


Title: Re: Crabcoins.com - New Crypto Currency Mining Information - Not just a calculator
Post by: paxpelus on March 16, 2014, 11:34:49 AM
We are planning on releasing an API this week on crabcoins.com and we want to gather some information about the way the data should look.

Ofcourse the API will return a JSON response. What we are asking for it what kind of data you would like to retrieve and in what structure? Give us some ideas, help us build the best mining profitability calculator service.


Title: Re: Crabcoins.com - New Crypto Currency Mining Information - Not just a calculator
Post by: nem2k on March 16, 2014, 10:06:27 PM
for my own personal use im interested in a few things:
1. the ability to provide api with a certain daily hashrate and power consumption, then have it return:
2. Revenue BTC for all coins (at a hashrate of 1MH)
3. will there be a limit to the number of api requests made per day? at the very least I would like to be able to call the api every hour, but higher resolution is always good

Just look at the coins in the http://altcoincalendar.info to see which one you're missing.

Post by: paxpelus on March 19, 2014, 09:27:34 AM
Looking for people to test our API. We will give to each one of you an API key to test our service. We need your feedback before releasing this on public. Please PM me for more information!

Hi paxpelus,

The difficulty for DOGE seems stuck at  890.21.
It might have to do with the hard fork that DOGE took recently.

Thanks for the good page! :)


Title: Re: Crabcoins.com - New Crypto Currency Mining Information - Not just a calculator

Vircurex is disabled :(

For obvious reasons....

Post by: timk225 on March 24, 2014, 09:22:12 AM
Add Solarcoin (SLR) !! Solarcoin is the next big up-and-comer, it will be the next DOGEcoin at least and most likely will take over the #2 spot from Litecoin.  Solarcoin has a detailed infrastructure already in place with the solar industry, so it's going to go WAY up in value and stay there.

And I'm not just saying that because I'm holding 80,000 SLR waiting for prices to surge so I can profit out of it.  Long term hold for maximum profit, NOW is the time to get in on it!!!
