Great! I've found this mining guide to be very interesting and a good way to learn how to mine the next anon cryptocurrency ZCash. Can't wait for the official release of ZCash this October 28, 2016 as I would get to mine them right away with my GPU mining rig. Also, I'm considering buying a contract over at Genesis Mining to mine ZCash which would save me all the hassle of setting up the rig properly, maintenance, and other factors. Thanks so much for this guide!  Cheesy

Does it work well on the AMD 7970 or the 280X? These are the very popular cards a few years ago.

Can people post their benchmarks?

I get around 6 sol at 2H/s using an Intel Core i7 6700 HQ

Well, I've only tested it for a short time doing the mining process on an AMD 7970 but haven't quite started full time mining ZCash with it so the results may vary. But since ZCash's mining algorithm is Equihash, it is more based on the amount of RAM that you have rather than depending more on GPU power.

Just in case, you can check out more info about it here: https://z.cash/blog/why-equihash.html

Now, I would also give a shot at Genesis Mining since they will be having contracts to mine ZCash. It is also a good choice if you prefer to skip setting up the mining rig, and giving it maintenance (also paying electricity costs). But, still as of today mining could be seen more as a hobby since it is not very profitable at all.  Smiley

The Genesis mining contract is too expansive. The 60H costs $2600. With 2x 390x you can get 60H yourself.

The 390x costs about $400 at the moment. That is just 15% of the Genesis mining cost, and you can sell the 390x later.

Yeah. I've had the same thought too. In this case, I would be earning more with my rig rather than depending on a cloud mining contract. If ZCash had an ICO, I would've bought plenty of coins in order to sell them later for profit. But, it seems that ZCash won't have an ICO so the only chance to get some coins would be via mining upon its release or buying a few coins on an exchange quickly before price starts to rise.  Grin

The 390x costs about $400 at the moment. That is just 15% of the Genesis mining cost, and you can sell the 390x later.

Thanks mate. This actually makes a lot more sense than spending more money on a contract in which it can reduce your chances of getting profit at all. I expect to reach ROI from within a year once I start mining ZCash with my rig.  Smiley

Those cloud mining contracts are a total joke, only the providers will make money on them.  I doubt they will ever roi...

I think a bunch of rx470s is the sweet spot for watts to sol/s, you can get almost 20 sol/s with 1375 straps currently.  It is also likely there will be future improvement to make the miner faster and rx 470 is only $200.

I agree with that totally. The cloud mining contract are 5 times over expensive. But people will still buy that.

Did you set the number of cores in the batch file (-t x)?
