As far as I saw while I searched on google about them, they are not a scam. Maybe it will took longer but I hope your problem it will be solved.

As a fact people are waiting months on poloniex to solve their problems


This. I use their software for CPU mining for over a year already. Haven't had any problems so far.

hi

So from your point of view, you don't have problem?

I was start with minergate, so any information will be grateful  Wink

Some people say they are unfair and actually take much more than 1% of your resources. But i didn't do any comparison myself so i can't tell.

Holy hell man, you've been using the MG miner for over a year and never bothered to try another miner? Huh You've mined at a 25-50% potential loss this entire time because you choose ease of use with a shit unoptimzed miner rather than spending 5 minutes to learn how to edit a config/bat file for a 3rd party miner.

Like ok, you're free to use the shitty pool everyone else thinks/knows is shit... But at least don't use their terrible miners that are pure junk and killing your potential profits even further.

I never took it serious since the returns were low, so why bother. You know you can't mine a lot with cpu right? Would be great if you can recommend specific alternatives though.
Thanks.

If you're doing the Cryptonote coins (XMR/BCN/and such) go for XMR-Stak-CPU

https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr-stak-cpu/releases   <---- binary files so you don't need to compile anything
https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr-stak-cpu    <------ Look at "Common Issues" section at bottom then do the "SeLockMemoryPrivilege failed" Windows tweak to boost performance. Depending on if you have Win Home or Win Pro there's 2 different routes to take to tweak it. And then besides that, just edit the config.txt file that comes along with the download. In there you'll put how many cores/threads you're using, configure the threads... And then just put pool address, wallet (which for MG would mean your email), and then pool password of "x"

For XMR atleast optimal setting is Total L3 Cache divided by 2mb. Can open Windows task manager then hit "Performance" tab to find out how much L3 Cache you have.

My cpu's have 8 cores, and 8mb L3 cache... So my XMR settings look like this:


"cpu_thread_num" : 4,

"cpu_threads_conf" :
 [
       { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 0 },
       { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 2 },
       { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 4 },
       { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 6 },
 ],



So the 4 thread number means the 8mb / 2mb... And then the rest of those listings just selects the cores to be used, starting with 0.

If you get stuck with setting it up, just check out https://www.reddit.com/r/MoneroMining/ and you'll find million xmr-stak posts of people asking how to set up. But it's essentially all I mentioned... Tweak the windows setting to optimize, then do the config file, then good to go. You'll see 25-50% better rates and be like "Fuck wish I did this sooner Sad"

* And if you're not mining XMR, but BCN or something... Then I don't think the L3 Cache / 2MB thing applies, so you can set whatever cores you want.

People, I advice you, MINERGATE are thiefs, they stole my 4,4 ether 3 days ago! I did mine with them so many time and they pay but, they can access your pc while mining is op. DO NOT GO MINE OR JUST INSTALL THIS SCAM PROGRAM, they will take all files from your pc and maybe steal yor cryptomoneys, i am shock right now, maybe somebody can help me, this is the transaction and if you follow it goes to two big wallets on bittrex and poloniex. I know that maybe is no help for me but if is possible i will reward as well, for example the half or more of the money, i don´t care, i just want to this thiefs go hell, and i know that karma will take their lifes, miners are good people we have to protect ourselves, please go steal other people for example banks, but take off your attention out small miners. This is the fraud transaction:

Hi thanks for the tips i  downloaded the xmr -stack but i find it difficult to run the code. I will really appreciate a guide or links from  you on how to run the xmr-stack miner. Thanks

Sorry to hear about your problems OP. I had a ticket stuck for 2 months without any kind of answer, so if i was you i would not lose hope yet.
Their support is just lazy or overloaded with tickets that they have to resolve. Also with common sense, you would know that these type of "get rich" schemes are almost always scams, since with mining you cannot promise some kind of profit because so many different kind of things that can change during certain time. Just wait patiently for the answer for few months. Panicking won't do you any good however. They have control over much more funds than you have stuck there, so it's probably just a bug.
