Speaking of non support related activity, I wanted to post this for a while and this reminded me.

So theoretically speaking with all the moonlander 2 hashing out there now, there should have been several blocks found by Moonlander 2s...and I'm sure one or two of those blocks are from solo people.

Definitely post up and let us know if you hit the jackpot and got 25 LTC out of a single moonlander 2. That would be a cool story!

I am running 6 Moonlanders on a Raspberry Pi (updated software) using current BFGminer version for ML. Running 3 each on Plugable 2.0 6 port powered hubs, thethered together (can't get Pi to work with two USB inputs for some reason), and one of the Plugable's connected to the pi. Using the following config:

./bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://us2.litecoinpool.org:3333 -u myworkername -p 1 -S ALL --set MLD:clock=700

The all get recognized but then slowly two of them (and it's random) start to drop and eventually go to 0. Not getting any significant HW errors on any of the sticks and they all initially spin up to over 3Mhz but then 2 will slowly drop off.

When I was running 3 on the Pi with one Plugable and 3 on my Mac with the other Plugable everything worked fine.

Any insights into what is causing this? I also tried with a Sipolar hub and had similar issue. Also not sure why the pi won't take two USB inputs (hence tethering the two hubs together and connecting 1 to the pi).

Thanks

Note - I dropped the frequency to 632 and seems to have fixed the issue. Weird as they worked at 700 (and 800) fine when they were hooked to different machines using the same hubs. Still no clue as to why pi won't handle two USB inputs though.

For anyone interested I reviewed the futurebut moonlander 2 and also created a basic setup guide for it
https://steemit.com/litecoin/@voskcoin/usb-scrypt-asic-miner-review-or-futurebit-moonlander-2

Note - I think its a really neat development and understand it can hash faster than 3 mh/s however out of the box that is what it hashes.

There is a great mining pool that works GREAT with the Futurebit Moonlander 2!

check out MCPNY.com and mine NewYorkCoin... more info about the coin at Nycoin.Community (lots of growth potential)

I help run this pool and mine hundreds of coins per day with each individual moonlander.

no need to register workers, just setup your command line like this:

bfgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://MCPNY.com:3008 -u yourNYCWalletAddressHere -p 1, -S MLD:all --set MLD:clock=832


obviously replace yourNYCWalletAddressHere with YOUR personal NYC wallet address which can be obtained via the Coinomi App on all Android or Apple devices.

Happy Mining & make lots of coins!  NYC to the MOON! when it hits $1.00 a coin, you'll be happy you did this!!

I just want to say, that this is the very first thing I've ever bought in terms of mining hardware. And once I figured out that my AV was eating the mining software I was trying to use, and I found a good pool (no plugs hehe) j/k litecoinpool.org and got everything setup, I sometimes like to really high and watch my two moonlanders red lights dancing in the dark. sometimes I even imagine it's a little tiny battle happening under my laptop and I wonder who's winning. Anywho, getting a little high there for a second watching the lights dancing and typing Smiley but seriously though, I really am enjoying watching the red lights knowing each flash means I'm making money.

Thanks! Some people have done interesting things with those LEDs...including making a crypto Christmas tree out of them Cheesy

Hello,

Is this an intro-to-mining device or can you still earn something with it and enough to reach ROI after a while?
It's to be used with low power raspberry pi 3 which I got for the pod miner that went out of production.

and how many do you need? the more the better I know but I can't afford many at once.

3MH/s seems like a lot compared to my quad core pc that does 130H/s on monero.
it's a different algo I know but I saw somewhere that the speeds are about equal to scrypt mining.

It’s more of an intro to mining than making lots of cash. There is almost no profit in scrypt at all right now with the price where it is, but your still earning the same number of Litecoins, so if prices recover you’d still make a profit.

https://www.litecoinpool.org/calc

You can run your own numbers, but for me... electricity costs so much ($0.30 kW/h) that I am losing money based on the current difficulty. A lot of Antminer L3+ got sold last few months, so the "effectiveness" of the hashrate basically dropped 50% for me.  Difficulty 5M in Mar 2018 to 10M in Jul 2018: https://www.coinwarz.com/difficulty-charts/litecoin-difficulty-chart

At this point, speculating on new scrypt coins, not mining at all, or litecoinpool mining seems to be about the same in terms of current outcome.

Hi. Is there any option , if power fails and recover after some time , can USB sticks start (auto start) without i be physically there to turn off and on them?

You can create a startup item to run the bat file when your computer restarts. Plenty of online tutorials on how to do this. Please also take support discussion to the support thread linked in the OP.

Ahhh nice, 27 chip miner and just under 75 watts (assuming 6 pin PCI-E is correct)?
That would make it < 2.75 watts per chip and around the same power draw of the
current L3+ BM1485 ASIC chips.
The hashing rate might be > 2.77Mhs per chip compared to the current 1.75Mhs.  
So think we might be seeing a 75+Mhs miner board @ <75 watts with heat sink on
other side maybe like a Zeus Blizzard?
