In the last 5 days I was able to earn 2BTC with total 5.5Mhs with cudaminer scrypt. That means roughly 0.4BTC per days with merely 5.5Mhs. If you compare with multipool, middlecoin, switchercoin & co, or coinwarz, coinchoose you know what I mean. Smiley

erm... I guess you're not planning to share your secret? Wink


Maybe with everybody but not with you, Christian, lol. Because without you I'm not able to get it Cheesy

It is easier than people think. My strategy is just simple. Mine potential coins when the diff still low and wait a few days when they are listed in exchange. The exchange is the most important part. If the exchange is big (like cryptsy), you need to dump your coin almost immediately, never wait more than 1 day to dump it. If the exchange is smaller you can wait a little bit to see how the market develops.
My strategy doesn't work everytime of course. There was time you earn almost like multipool & co (that means 10$/day/Mhs) or even lower but in general you should earn more. In my case average earning of mine is double as multipool & co. Of course I could earn more if i want a little more risk, but with that earning is it enough for me. Not to much stress and very fun for newbie in crypto like me.

It is not hard to write a bash script to detect the diff change from the coin daemon and then point your miner to it. Thought with cudaminer you need to kill cudaminer completely and start it again, which I don't like it and it is not good for the hardware. Two of my cheap PSU died because of suddenly change in power consumption. I would like to have the ability to switch the coin in cudaminer like cgminer API but it is not the main focus right now of Christian, I guess.
Case study for my strategy:
I mined 400k Digibyte for the first day and 200k USDe for next two days. 400k DGB is now 1.2BTC and 200k USDe = 1BTC. And I sold my 400k DGB for 0.8BTC and 200k USDe for 0.5BTC a few days ago. But still I'm ok with what I earned for 3 days with my lame hash Smiley))

Do you always download the wallet source code and compile for yourself or do you get .exe files from the coin authors? I would be a bit worried about malware, always grabbing the latest coin executables. Maybe running the different wallets in separate virtual machines would be advisable.

Sooo its been a while. 8 days with my pc in bits after a pump failure :-( we still mining yacoin? It doesnt seem to be worth anything and im massively out of touch with the cudaminer mining trend right now

I never use Windows so the only way for me to grab the coin client is through source code. It is sometimes big headache to compile when the dev don't use *nix but somehow I could figure it out. And I assume it is still easier than Windows, I just don't know how to start with windows. Wink

If you use Windows Christian, I think you should always encrypt your wallet first.

The fact that my scrypt-jane kernels use 4 threads per hash is actually the key for the decent performance of nVidia cards. It allows me to get 4 times the occupancy of the shader hardware, given the tight memory constraints. This... and the lookup_gap implementation I recently added.

In contrast, the currently fastest scrypt (non-jane) kernels run 1 thread per hash: There is no overhead for inter-thread communication and shader occupancy is not an issue considering the 128kb requirement per hash.

Because you are working on the AMD miner code, I think this information might be useful to you.

Christian

Interesting to know this.  Those options are available as command line options already, and I've done a lot of testing with different numbers of threads and lookup gap, and the extra threads don't really add to the performance on the AMD cards when doing scrypt-chacha at high N-factors.  In fact, sometimes only allocating one thread with twice the buffer size and running at a higher intensity yields better results because there are fewer in-memory collisions.  If I were running a higher-end AMD with a high shader count, and the memory to go with it, that might absolutely be the way to go.  The R7 250 is only 384 shaders, and the 240 is only 320.

How much khash for YAC with N=14 do you have, Christian? You solo with multiple PCs or it is just one?

at peak hours I do around 31 kHash/s. This might be around 1.5-2% of the YAC network's hashing power - it's hard to find accurate estimate of the network hash rate though.

I have roughly 45kHash/s if I point all my machine to YAC. But I dont know how to solo mining with multiple machine and I don't want to install every coin client and miner in each machine so I stay with pool.
You could earn roughly 1500YAC/day, am I right?

yes, close to that. But I can't sell it for the price I would like to sell it for Wink

Maybe wait for the difficulty to go up and hope it does a dogecoin on it and the price goes up 10 times
