What if you type this
cgminer.exe  --gekko-2pac-freq 200 -o stratum+tcp://peercoin.ecoining.com:3336 -u username.1 -p x
directly into an open cmd window. Do you get any errors?

Yes, I have received an error.

cgminer.exe  --gekko-2pac-freq : unrecognized option

Can you please help me out?

Also how do I verify the CGI miner is using the  GekkoScience 2Pac BM1384 ?

I don´t know how that exactly works on windows. But in linux you have to compile cgminer yourself with the --enable-gekko parameter. Then you have the drivers installed and you can run the 2pac.
Did you read the windows part in post #1?

I don't think this device is going to work with peercoin. It's a Bitcoin Miner.

No.

Just like any other Bitcoin (SHA-256) ASIC miner it works ok also with other SHA-256 coins, like Peercoin.

But the ideal idea IMO is to point it to a BTC solo pool as a 'lottery ticket' miner.  Smiley

You are using a cgminer without the gekko driver. Read the first post.

Hello and merry christmas.

I purchased 2 of the 2-paks a couple of weeks ago and have been slowly ramping them up in speed. Great tech. Thanks. I have been unable to get them to run overnight at 300mhz, but they run continuously and without error at 287.5. Well done.

Hi. I just got my ASIC miner today and have quickly realized that it gets very hot very fast. How can I keep it cool?

Like any other electronics! fans, air-conditioning, running at slower clock speeds.
Here is my solution

This should do the trick. A bunch of people (myself included) have this and it works great. In the meantime, I believe it is not recommended to run your 2pac above 100 freq until you have a fan on it but I would check just to be sure.

Also with my new miner, I realized that I can put more into my computer to use more workers. What usb miner offers the largest hash rate for the lowest cost?

Which is favourable to mine with GekkoScience 2Pac BM1384 Stickminer? Bitcoin or Peercoin ?

Should I switch to bitcoin? Or stay with peercoin?



I do BCH and make 5 cent for every 24hours. Never tried peer and bitcoin difficulty is too high.

i have mine, compacs not 2pacs, on zpool indirectly mining verge (xvg)

i have a feeling this coin is going to take off in the next few months..

altho currently zpools diff seems to be broken and is stuck at the max so they dont produce many shares.

Compacs are SHA256 algorithm so how are you mining verge (xvg) since its hashing algorithms are Namely, Scrypt, X17, Lyra2rev2, myr-groestl and blake2s.

I have been trying to figure out how to get my 2pacs to work on zpool, all I ever get is stratum requested restart. Then it disconnects. Are you willing to share your secret?

the diff is too high so they disconnect all the time, but they still submit shares.. ?

zpool allows you to set your payout address to any coin they mine..

I will throw them back on and give it some more time, guess I got worried something would break. maybe I can see it accept some shares.
