Quick question: Where to order to ship to the following countries: Canada, Philippines, UK (or Europe). I'd like to buy one stick (unless you are willing to send me one to test it for an unbiased review.)

Resellers are all the usual suspects. 419Mining, ASICPuppy and BitcoinMerch are stocking in the US. Bitshopper.de is selling in Germany, and Eyeboot.com will have stock in Hong Kong.

GPU miner here, been running dual PSUs for last decade. My typical rig consists of one motherboard, 6 or 8 cards, two PSUs 650-850W each, for total of 1100-1200W per rig. They are running for years on end, without any reboots.
I presume you just speaking from what you heard, not real experience?
I agree, that running two PSUs on one electrical device (like one Apollo or one GPU) is a no no. But don't extrapolate that to "One should NEVER try to run ANY sort of PSU's in parallel" (your quote), because that's BS.

Are you running your PSUs in parallel or in series though?  It seems you have one set of things powered by one and another set of things powering separate items. The current only flows through one path in a series setup.

Yes the miner crashes when your internet connection disconnects, we have fixed the issue with a workaround in the full package version, but we have to fix the miner binary for the standard units which we should have an update for next week.

FYI if your running standard units on a linux distro you can wrap the miner binary in systemd with auto-restart flag for a temp fix.

Any chance of releasing the miner source? It looks like it's based on om-miner (like the bitfury b8 boxes), but haven't found the source anywhere. Is it going to continue to be closed source?

  Im wondering if anyone else has seen the "Command terminated with signal 11 (core file generated)" message in the screen session running the miner software.  I am on Ubuntu 20.04 with an older kernel 5.4.0-58-generic (needed for issues related to GPU mining). 


Yep, that's the miner binary crashing for some reason. Impossible to know though because it's not open source so we cant run a debug version. Wrapping it in the shell script will reload it when it crashes so that segmentation fault would happen, but the application would restart right away.

Any Batch 2 units left to ship will be out by end of this week. We shut down the line early last week to give our workers a longer break for labor day.

Were the limited "in stock" units that showed up on the site when you canceled the flipper orders counted as batch 2 or batch 3?

Do the stock PSUs work with Turbo mode?  What has everyone experience been?
They should! Turbo mode is 200W, eco is 125W - the PSU is rated for the full 200W.

Better to not run at 100% of the PSU capacity though. I run turbo but use an off the shelf 500W PSU.

which video cards are you using ?

This is a dedicated mining system with ASIC chips. You can't mine BTC with a video card.

If the hub is able to provide the full power, seems like the only thing could be something with the hardware. I have 2Pacs that still work fine, but they're at least 3 years old and the chips they use are probably even older.

Based on that, you have a dead set of chips on your 2Pac or Compac. how much power per port is your hub giving the stick?

Bought some in the preorder - time to retire the R808s and replace with these.

Hey yall, its been a while!

Got my shiny new Apollo BTC's today, and got them up and running easily and seamlessly.
A really nice industrial design, and UX design on this one, well done!

I do have a few questions, that are more likely feature requests...
  • 1.  Can you set a hashrate target (instead of energy target), and have the power and clocks adjust to meet it?
  • 2.  Can you do any type of scheduling for adjusting hashrate, or starting/stopping the hash?  My electricity costs are dramatically higher in the evening and would want to mine outside that window daily.
  • 3.  If you have multiple Apollo units, controlled by one "Main/Full" unit, can you have those identified as separate workers to a pool? .
  • 4.  What are considered "reasonable" temperatures, or perhaps what are MAXIMUM temperatures which should not be exceeded for these units?.

Thanks, and cheers!

1. No, you can't do this. The miner itself doesn't really know it's true hashrate. The JSON log will let you see different ways it's calculated (by work solves, by pool hash rate, or by pool provided jobs)
2. Yes, but you need to use cron jobs or other scheduling to do this. If you buy the full package, you'd need to SSH in and setup the scheduling jobs to stop the miner and restart it with different parameters
3. Don't have a full unit, but you can definitely start each miner separately from the command line (they all use a unique USB tty ID)
4. Mine run at around 60 C on average. No sure on max, but I haven't seen any high temperature alarms
12  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Official FutureBit Apollo BTC Software/Image and Support thread on: August 16, 2021, 11:26:19 PM

Not sure I understand.  Is there an API?  Who is adding what to what?


As far as I know, there's no built-in RPC API like cgminer has. However, the miner software writes a JSON file that has it's current stats. You can parse this and it will show things like Uptime, Hashrate (calculated in different ways), Temperature, Current Pool, Share info, and power info.

I have a cron job that copies this file into my Apache folder, and then from there I use it to show a mining dashboard. I think other tools like AwesomeMiner would have to do something similar.

Hi guys I tried to solo mine another SHA256 project as well as pool mining but both have error of unable to connect to pool. May I know how can I solve that? Thanks

Sounds like a pool issue - make sure your username is being entered correctly. If you're solo mining, you need to make sure your stratum proxy is working correctly.
15  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: Solo Mining Setup with S19 on: August 08, 2021, 08:24:41 PM
It's probably easier to point to a solo pool to make sure you don't lose the block you could find. Kano has the lowest fee, CKPool Solo has a long history, and there are others like viaBTC.

However, if you're deadset to solo mine to your own node from your s19, you need:

  • Setup RPC connection (username and password) on your bitcoind
  • Use cgminer or bfgminer stratum proxy to do you local mining, OR
  • Setup an open source mining pool


16  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [∞ YH] solo.ckpool.org 2% fee solo mining 258 blocks solved! on: August 08, 2021, 07:21:49 PM

OK please help me understand here.
Each block header contains Version, Previous Block Hash, Merkle Root, Timestamp, Bits and Nonce.
Our work is to find a blockhash of these information that is less than or euqal the target goal here.
If each one of us are using a unique startum connection, It will result different merkle root hash. So if this is the case, how do you distribute/define different work/shares to miners?


Yes, each Merkle root is slightly different. There are 2^256 possibilities, which is number with 78 digits, and about 1/1000th the number of atoms in the universe. It is extreme unlikely to get a collision, just like its extreme unlikely to generate the same public key for two individuals with strong sources of randomness. The pool sends out a range of work for the miner to work on with a start and stop place. If there is a new block, or the miner has a new set of work/merkle root due to better transactions, or the miner is done searching it's assigned space, it gets more work.

Are you running as a user who has access to the device? (sudo or granting the permissions that were posted earlier in the thread.)

This is the  wrong section for this question. You're in the Bitcoin Mining section. Altcoin mining is here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=160.0
19  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: With $20k to spare on a rig @ $0.12/kWh...how much could I earn a day? on: August 03, 2021, 01:12:32 PM
1 S19 Pro at 110 TH/s is $12.5k. That eats up 3250W, or 78 kWh per day ($9.36 power costs at 12c)

For the next 2 weeks or so, the miner should produce around $40 of BTC per day or around $30 on top of electrical costs.

Difficulty will probably increase in 2 weeks, so this number goes down as difficulty rises, on average 4% per 2 weeks.

This also assumes you have the 220v power already run, have internet and ventilation and noise all taken care of.
20  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: FutureBit Apollo hashrate question on: August 02, 2021, 05:19:34 PM
Thank you for your response to my question, I appreciate the feedback.  I'm assuming this is in turbo mode?

Yes, using a 500w power supply (not the 200w you can buy with it.)
