just got my moonlanders and have been struggling to get them to connect to AntPool

I can mine on any other pool except antpool.  I Believe it is due to the url ( stratum+tcp://stratum-ltc.antpool.com:8888 ). i think the dash - is messing up the syntax or something. other pools i have tried do not have a dash in the url.

anyone find a way around this? happens on my mac, linux laptop, and ras pi.

you can buy them direct from the Futurebit site - https://shop.futurebit.io/products/moonlander-2-usb-stick-asic-miner-for-scrypt-algorithm-cryptocurrencies?variant=8651174445171

no, it cannot mine Ethereum - these miners are Scrypt algo

The one I had worked great - it is not a large money maker but it is perfect to learn mining on and doesn't cost anything to run basically.

you can not mine Ethereum directly, but...

try some multicoin-multialgo mining pools (for example zpool) to mine scrypt coins with low diff (for example Emerald ;-)) ) and get payed in ETH, BTC, DASH or similar major coins

Thanks for the info sir, I would like to try this one, by the way in your experience is this miner is easy to use? How about the hashrate and the power consumption for this miner? all we know that the antminer is a power hungry miner.

You will need to make sure that the port alignment is horizontal, and not vertical. I have a 7 port AmazonBasics hub, and have to space the moonlanders apart with two ports in between, because the Fan and Heatsinks jut out in front and behind.

mine was horizontal and after a few weeks it just broke - nothing was touching it, it was just sitting on a table with nothing around it.

No - I still need to buy a replacement piece.

Again thats impossible. These are reinforced USB ports that solder directly onto the board with two anchors. You would have to take pliers to it to yank it off. Im sure someone in your household bumped into it and was too scared to tell you  Grin

If you want just mail it in and ill fix it for you

No thats an old listing from a reseller that still has the prototype image up. Moonlander 2 is officially EOL, the ASIC for this is no longer in production Sad

You can say that but I can attest to how it was positioned - there is no possibility of someone bumping it where it was placed. The laptop it was connected to sits on a table where the usb stick hung over the table that the laptop rests upon so it was not as if it was hanging out into open space where it could be run into accidentally or intentionally.

would it have mattered which way was facing up? ie fan on the underside or topside? in my case it hung with the fan on the underside.

Nope, moonlander weights 50 grams, would take at least a pound of force to even begin to bend it. You can even tell in your picture that the metal tab that holds it in place was sheered off (ie it was not a bad solder where the tab was not even soldered in place), this would take an incredible amount of force to do, and most likely was a blunt force from the side to make the metal tear off like that.

well i can still validate and promise that no one bumped it. the  "table" it rests upon is 5 feet off the ground and is not anywhere someone could bump it other than myself.

That all being said - it was given to me - I was not the original purchaser and when I received it the usb portion was - wobbly - not sure if that is the best word - it would rock side to side a couple of degrees. So, perhaps it was already damaged.

I would welcome a repair if you are still willing to do so knowing that I got it used. If so - where would I send it to?

May i know does anyone by chance have any solutions for using moonlander 2 on virtualbox ubuntu?
I had enabled usb 3.0 on the settings as well as added the filter for the drivers and moonlander2
When i opened my ubuntu in virtualbox, the device > usb shows a tick on my moonlander 2 too.

But when i run bfgminer, says waiting for devices and also says Segmentation fault (core dumped) . Thanks in advance

p/s: may i know is there a huge difference in result using windows vs linux to mine?

Thats fine, stock settings have changed since those pics were taken, if you see lots of errors you can slowly turn the main voltage pot to the + side and that should help.
