1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 8th Alt coin thread. Or what to do now that asics are all over the place. on: May 16, 2018, 11:47:26 AM
On a sidenote, since we're talking about power, my provider here in London (British Gas) was going to increase prices to over 0.16/KWh (that's US$ 0.22!)... so I'm in the process of switching. That'll bring me back down to 0.11 ($0.15). Every little helps!

That's interesting, I've been on 0.1282 with BG, they now want 0.16 as they did from you. Best I've been quoted is 0.1321 ($.18) from Scottish Power ... out of interest, who are you switching to?

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Bitmain Launches the New Antminer B3 Miner on: May 15, 2018, 04:23:10 PM

Just wondering if anyone has been paid yet?

Antpool has removed any reference to ERC20, and so far I have not received any payments (like most people I imagine?).

If they have now moved to paying in BTM, we'll need to change the wallet address ... and what then happens to ERC20 'pending' payments I wonder.

Love you Bitmain, thanks for the continued support and transparency about your 'new' pool.

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Happy New Years! Seventh alt coin thread! on: May 14, 2018, 06:10:23 PM

Keep the thread going for sure, a lot of people find it very useful (Although we are well past 'New Year' now).  Wink

I've been gradually selling a lot of my GPUs over the past few weeks, shifted over fifty 1070 Minis, with good profits as resale is still good. They sold for more than they cost, so 'free' mining from them. As for the 1080ti cards and others, not sure, still on the fence deciding what to do with those. You have to run your mining efforts as a business, and my gut told me it was time for a change. It would have taken around 10 months to mine what they sold for.

I don't want to enter/start yet another ASIC debate, but with Bitmain and others cracking nearly all of the Algos, it's just the pace and evolution of the business. Nothing lasts forever, and I'm happy to move on and try things another way. I'm sort of hoping 'programmable' miners come to reality this year. In some respects Baikal have set the ball rolling as they add new algos now and then to existing machines. It would be SO INTERESTING to know exactly what all these manufacturers have on the test bench, let alone live in the data hall ... but as consumers we only learn the facts after they have almost bled the system dry before they decide to retail them.

UK power costs keep going up, wish I had access to solar or better deals, but long term we are stuffed over here and increases in electricity of 5% once or twice a year are not uncommon.

So ... for me it's re-focus time. Embrace the likes of the Z9 (putting algo forks/changes/ASIC resistance aside), realise profit from the hardware I have, buy some more coins and hodl.

As the saying goes 'give it a year' ... and the landscape will have settled in a different way to what we have been used to.

Looking forward to new more efficient GPU/ASIC/FPGA hardware coming out in the months ahead, I'll be buying back in I hope.

(And yes, I dropped a BIG bollock buying the B3, should have known better, but at 310w power consumption (so my meter says) it's a 'punt', just the way mining the likes of Raven have been. HODL over time will tell).

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Bitmain Launches the New Antminer B3 Miner on: May 14, 2018, 05:13:32 PM

Well ... it's Monday and no payments made yet from Antpool?

Earnings are sure taking a dive: 59/44/40 and then 28BTM yesterday.

Obviously more units coming online ...

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Bitmain Launches the New Antminer B3 Miner on: May 10, 2018, 05:22:04 PM

I just wish we had more pools to choose from, this whole Bytom B3 mining experience so far has been a cluster fuck for sure.

ViaBTC said they were opening a BTM pool once the mainnet was running, but as yet it hasn't shown up. I've not had problems with that pool in the past.

It would be nice to have a European pool so latency can be reduced, it feels like we aren't quite getting the rewards we should with all those discarded shares mounting up.

OK, so I've upgraded both my SRR boards, reset all the rigs and all looks good.

A small problem ... I would like to use the notes feature to label each rig ... but can't use it as I keep getting an error:

@ tytanick - Any ideas?

I may be wrong...but I think? you can only mine it on antpool (bitmain's pool)

I found this snippet of info earlier: "Apart from the cooperation with Bitmain, Bytom also signed cooperation contract with 8 wallet service provider: Kushen, imToken, Bitpie, Bixin, Kcash, Cobo, Bepal, Hufu and 9 mining pools: Ant pool, F2pool, BTCC, Spider pool, UUPOOL, Xiamen pool, Poolin, 91POOL and Viabtc."

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Bitmain Launches the New Antminer B3 Miner on: May 02, 2018, 03:36:51 PM

Here we go again ... (assuming the info is correct) Bitmain flying by the seat of their pants as usual:

Bitmain issuing 4000RMB (628USD) refund to first batch B3 buyers in China.

I ordered one unit, in the UK ... yes please Bitmain let all the other worldwide buyers have a refund too!

Check the miner list, there are are least six miner progs available for RVN.

x16r (Raven) + many others.

People have been mining RVN for weeks with SMOS, my weapon of choice was enemy-1.03.

Trying to point some 1080ti and 1070 cards that way, but getting the same result here ... tried all sorts of tweaks, but no dice ...

I agree this sounds a little fishy, but an interesting idea, not a lot on Google.

12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: [Mining OS] - Easy to use GPU MINING Operating System on: February 08, 2018, 04:35:05 PM

@ tytanick - I find it quite useful every now and then to sort my rigs by temperature, but it looks like there is maybe a bug in the system.

When sorting from high to low I get this: 62℃/64℃/60℃/59℃/56℃/63℃ etc.

Just an observation, would be nice if they displayed in the correct descending order (ascending order produces the same random result).

13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 1050Ti and 1050 mining performance on: January 31, 2018, 07:58:19 PM

I'm running nothing but 1070/1070ti + 1080ti cards on all my rigs, but got a bit frustrated about the rip-off charges for new cards at present, so just bought x6 1050ti cards for a new rig.

Using Simple Mining OS, mining Equihash, Core 110, Memory 800, Power 100 and getting 1020sols at 440 watts. It's not great when you looks at the sols per watt (compared to my other rigs), but the rig is earning. But these cards are cheap, so that kinda makes me feel better  Cheesy

I'll see if I can tweak it a bit when I get the time.

... waits patiently for prices to come back down to earth again ...

I was seriously going to give this a whirl, need a good accounting system, such a pain keeping track of cryptos etc.

After reading through the last 10 pages or so it I'll give it a miss and stick to Excel for the time being.

Hope they fix the issues for you all ...

15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: ASRock H81 Pro BTC R2.0 / Wiring. Please help. on: December 19, 2017, 12:37:32 PM
I guess im wondering why the board needs extra power if the cards are not receiving any power from the PCI slots. Seems like they are just there as left overs (or an option) from before there were powered risers. Manual says they need to be connected but seems like old info.

I'm running lots of these boards, all using powered risers with no extra power to the molex connectors to the board - all running sweetly with no issues.

If you see the warning notice to power the boards from the BIOS screen, just press 'n' and ignore it.

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: [Mining OS] - Easy to use GPU MINING Operating System on: December 05, 2017, 07:14:24 PM
Is there any news from adding new dstm's mimner to SMOS. Even it has %2 dev fee, for 1060 it is %3-4 faster then EBWF's miner.

It was added earlier today, switched a few rigs over to it ... looks like I might have to tweak a few OC settings as its continually resetting the server difficulty level and few cards are stopping. The console read-outs in SMOS look a little weird at times.

Tytanick also added an updated Claymore miner.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: [Mining OS] - Easy to use GPU MINING Operating System on: November 25, 2017, 11:05:16 AM
Yes i will be adding few miners and dstm is one fo them.

Any news when this will happen? - No updates in changelog since 26th of last month ... 4 weeks ...

18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Sixth alt coin thread I forgot to mod last thread. on: November 23, 2017, 07:56:28 PM

Looks like Bitmain may have a competitor next year, a company called Halong Mining with a 16TH/s SHA256 miner.

DragonMint 16T Specifications:

ASIC Type: SHA256
Hash power: 16 THS
Network: Ethernet port
Miner power consumption: 1205 W 6%
Chip efficiency: 0.075 J/GHS 6%
Fans: dual fan variable 6000rpm (100W)
Power Supply: Not included (1600W recommended)

At present they say around $1595, shipping March 2018.

Guess the old S9 might get an upgrade then?

As ever, be wary, they are as yet unproven, and of course on a pre-order!

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Sixth alt coin thread I forgot to mod last thread. on: November 17, 2017, 08:15:03 PM

Also, I have near 100% uptime every since using SRR system - worth every penny that system - sleeping well again.

@ Citronick

Posted a question on the SRR thread but no reply, maybe you can tell/advise me?

I'm in the process of moving all my rigs to SMOS, received a SRRv2 (not plugged in/tried it yet) which will do 8 rigs, but I have 11 rigs on SMOS at the moment. The expansion board will obviously add 32 rigs when it's available.

If I bought another SRRv2 to cater for rigs 9 to 11, will it work OK, or will they clash with each other and not work?

I see you need to enter the serial number of SRR when setting up the system, so I'm 'assuming' if I was running two SRRs with different serials, all would be OK?

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: [Mining OS] - Easy to use GPU MINING Operating System on: November 11, 2017, 07:25:42 PM

Ty ... any news on when you might include DTSM miner in SMOS? I've found it a LOT better/reliable/faster than EWBF. For this reason I've stopped using SMOS a few weeks back and running on Win10 again.
