1  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: BTC hashrate changes on: September 08, 2018, 10:20:44 AM
Are the coin prices automatically fed into the coin switching program? And how rapidly would they be able to sell what they mine?

I presume it all hangs on price and how quickly you can dispose of it. It's not much use if you sell once at the end of the week. Whatever spike you benefited from might have evaporated in terms of price by then.

You can't spend the reward from a mined block until 100 blocks have been mined on top of it. At 10 minute block times that means you can't spend your mined coin for 16.7 hours. Assuming you have enough hashrate to get daily pool payouts, you could certainly mine a coin and sell it the same day to lock in profits. You would have to have a lot of hashrate to make this worthwhile though.

TradeOgre web trading interface seems to be disabled, but the markets are seemingly still accessible through the API.

XMR withdrawals instantly failing for me. They did respond to my DM on twitter, telling me they'd changed something and to try again. No luck though.

I also just got paid. The pool UI doesn't seem to be updating correctly.

Also experiencing some troubles with

Firstly pool hashrate is double network hashrate.. which seems a little odd.

The pool is mining all blocks in the network ( seems to be on a different chain), but share effort is consistently > 100, often much higher.

Is the bugged pool hashrate meaning share effort is being calculated wrong?

And lastly, unpaid balance isn't increasing as blocks mature and no payouts are being made.

TL;DR is mining all blocks but payouts/effort calculation seem to be broken.

Not seeing a thread here for so I though I'd start one.

Newish exchange, seems to focus on privacy coins, mostly cryptonight alts with tiny volumes.
Biggest markets are ETN-BTC and GRFT-BTC at this point. Seems to cater mostly to miners.

No email address. No way to contact support. whois shows whoisguard was used to hide registrants email address.

Anyone have any experience on this exchange?

Is it known if there are any other companies that resell Whatsminers with their own branding?
9  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Did this Whatsminer M3 have a previous life as Kodak KashMiner? on: February 15, 2018, 06:34:51 PM

Today a Whatsminer M3 that I ordered in 2017 arrived. I plugged it in and got it hashing, then noticed that on the side there was a gluey residue, as though a sticker had been there and then been peeled off. The same residue on both sides. Then I remembered seeing the picture of "Kodak KashMiners" which seemed to be Whatsminers M3 with a Kodak sticker on the side. I googled the pic and sure enough, the stickers are the right size and in the same place as my residue. (

Did I get sold a retired Kodak KashMiner? Or do all Whatsminers M3 come with this sticky residue? Any one else who received their Feb batch M3's notice anything similar?

I'm not particularly outraged, more curious and mildly amused.

OP I commend your entrepreneurial thinking.  Don't let the haters get you down, I think you have the base of a solid plan. Noise would definitely be an issue with people sleeping nearby. Maybe with a quiet GPU rig you'd be ok.

Personally I wouldn't want to leave my rig overnight/during the day in case it got stolen/confiscated.. it would be a big risk each stay (depending on where you stay).

How about you use cafes instead? You can use their wifi, plug into an outlet (might need to disguise your rig somewhat, a suitcase should do it), then buy 1 coffee every couple of hours whilst you browse a laptop. This way you save money and are with your rig at all times, in case a swift exit is needed. I'd leave a good tip. If you integrated a UPS into your suitcase-rig and added a fall back 3G dongle, you could even keep mining whilst you walk between cafes/back to your hotel.

You could even try it on public transport. There are trains with sockets/wifi, and depending on ticket prices/ride duration (it would be best to go for super discounted, very slow trains.. that way you get more running time per $ spent), it could be possible for your miner to pay for your train ticket and make a little profit. That way your miner would literally be paying for you to travel.

I'm sure there must be other places where you could do this (airports? train/bus stations?), but you may get moved on eventually.

Good luck OP!
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / AMD Crimson ReLive [Suspicious link removed]pute on: August 16, 2017, 06:03:28 PM
edit: The forum thinks the AMD link is a suspicous link, you can google  the title of this thread to find the download (on the official AMD site)

This looks very encouraging... shame it's windows only Sad Hoping AMD will release a linux version soon.

In the meanwhile, can any windows users shed some light on this? Is this a drop in replacement driver for amdgpu-pro 17.30? What kind of hashrate increases (if any) are people seeing.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Claymore's Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v9.8 (Windows/Linux) on: August 15, 2017, 06:34:19 AM

Ethash - 33.7 MH/s
EthashDecr80 - (33.33 MH/s, 2.67GH/s) - @ 240-280 watts on kilowatt (with cpu 320-360 watts total... cpu/mb/mem/ssd take about 80 watts) temp @73 with fan @80%

Ethash2gb -37.58 MH/s
Ethash2gbDecred85 - (34.64 MH/s, 2.94 GH/s)

What is Etash2gb and Ethash2gbDecred85?

they were designed for 2gb cards.

yea, I gathered that but how are you using it now that DAG size is over 2gb?  or what version of claymore duel eth miner is that?

Probably mining UBIQ or another EThash coin that hash a DAG < 2gb? Thats my guess anyways!
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: RX 460 Modding in Linux? on: August 13, 2017, 01:09:11 PM
This is how I did it, although I still used windows for a small part (but mainly cos I'm paranoid).

First of all I'll just say that I found no way of finding out what type of VRAM you have in linux. Would love to know how to find out in linux, but I had to boot windows and run GPUZ to find out.

I used the following tools  to mod/flash my bios:

atiflash - to save/load BIOSes.. apparently there is a linux version but I didn't really want to run an unknown binary on my linux box so I just used the windows version.

hexeditor/polarisbioseditor - You can use either of these to mod your bioses. PBE is written in c# so I see no reason why you couldn't get it running in linux. I used a hex editor.

Check sum fixer if you don't use PBT - I used the checksum fixer provided here . There are also tools here to overclock your cards and decode RAM timings.

I also found the tool handy (

Good Luck!

Guys, how's better to mine sigt? Directly on wallet or being paid on btc via zpool?

You'd need a sizeable chunk of hashrate to make solo mining worthwhile on SIGT right now. Although difficulty does fluctuate a lot so maybe I'm wrong.

15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Fifth alt coin thread last four got too big. on: August 12, 2017, 06:03:04 PM
I would go linux on my rigs, but from my understandings is that you cant run ccminer on linux or am i thinking that wrong? i use currently 6 different versions of ccminer on my rigs for when i switch coins.

ccminer compiles and runs fine on linux.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Can I mining ethereum with Raspberry Pi 3? on: August 12, 2017, 05:55:13 PM
A Raspberry Pi is probably better for staking than mining.

Unless it's some kind of ARM specific PoW algo you will almost certainly never make anything to speak of.

Would love to be proven wrong tho!
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Any word on amd vega hash rates? on: August 12, 2017, 10:21:55 AM
I heard some talk about 70-100Mh/s aswell, at about 200watts this seems great. But price needs to be around 600$ or under for it to be efficent.

Yepp, you seem rarely misinformed to be a miner.

I don't care where the mining power comes from, most hash per watt wins for me and if VEGA is it i am going for it.

With crypto specific instructions VEGA is partially built to mine, these instructions is only activated in the drivers that the reviewer have right now and are packaged on cd in the VEGA retail boxes.

With the new extreme cache structure, crypto specific instructions and HBM2 a massive increase is possible.

As for power, there should be no problem undervolting gpu and overclock memory, also bet you that the gpu will draw less power using the crypto specific instructions.

AMD is not stupid, they put the crypto instructions in there to make money, if they can't beat nVidia in the gaming market they are going after the mining market and gaming will come second, as simple as that, it's all about the money.

Tell you what i know, if VEGA performs you will definitely be in line with the rest of us buying VEGA Smiley or else u better you stop mining.

AFAIK the new instruction in VEGA is for SHA256 hashes... not useful for Ethereum hashing anyway.


Would happily be proven wrong though.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][MAC]Machinecoin - The Steampunk Cryptocurrency - Now With TimeTravel PoW! on: August 09, 2017, 05:28:37 PM
After 24 hours of not being able to sync, it finally synced.

Then I sent some MAC to another address, this was over 3 hours ago, still not received. And the transaction has 0 confirmations. What is going on with the MAC network??

Hey yo,

Please see this

As you can see the hashrate dropped after the difficulty rised (new block was mined). This means that some miner is pushing the difficulty up and stops mining => longer block times.

If we would have a higher hashrate, this problem would be fixed..however this will require more people to mine Machinecoin.

Friendly Regards

Hi SkycityVictorians, just wanted to ask you what the website you linked is? I've been looking for a site that shows MachineCoin hashrate and that link looks good!

If you want to save money on a PSU but still get reasonable quality buy a server PSU.

They are designed for being left on 24/7 and you can get some 2k ones with plenty of amps available on the 12v rail.

The downside is that you may need a breakout board/to manually wire up PCIe connectors, and they are LOUD.
