So I've been testing Bminer for a few days now and I am going back to DSTM's miner (zm).

First off, everyone else should be doing their own tests and make their own judgement. Take my results with a grain of salt. I started this test because I tried out no devfee option on this miner and saw pretty much no change whatsoever on the hash rate which was really strange.

Hardware: 5 x GTX 1070

Testing methodology: Start miner. Take note of Sol/s. Wait 24 hour. After the first 24 hour, take note of Debit AP. Wait another 24 hour, take note of Debit AP.

Note: Second Debit AP is what I used in this table to keep this short. Of course, testing for longer than this will give more accurate results but this is enough for me. DO YOUR OWN TEST.

MinerAverage SolsDev FeePayout Last 24HR
Bminer2510Yes0.12886265
Bminer2510No0.12936028
DSTM's (zm)2440Yes0.14198767

As I said before, there's no difference in hash rate whether you're running with dev fee or not. During these tests, I check whattomine everyday for their 24 hour estimated rewards; it was around 0.145. This is just an estimation but I think it's a good guideline of what you should be paid as it has been accurate for me for months and months.

I think the hash rate shown is padded and I will be going back to DSTM's in the mean time.

Can other people test no devfee option? Anyone else keeping track of their payouts?

this is ridiculous. what kind of scientific methodology is that? decide for whatever you want if you play with random results.

go back in the thread. I was running both miners for 4 or 5 days on the same rig with the same system config and 4 same cards for each miner. This means that I averaged out most of if not all randomness which is there to average out. And I got ca. 6-7% better results from the pool hash rate stats and not some random debit credit which also depends on a hell lot of factors beyond your control.

really, before you post any message like that think whether you compare apples to apples or it is google to apples and then stop complaining about what you see. because you just cannot compare the way you do

First, I didn't say it was scientific at all wtf... I was lining out what I was doing, and I did say that people should do their own test and come to their own conclusion. If this miner is better for you then you use it. Same with EWBF vs DSTM miner. I even put in TWO places that people should do their own tests and to take my results with a grain of salt.

Second, I mine on suprnova so hash rate doesn't mean shit because suprnova doesn't display accurate hash rate. This is why I used payout because in the end all that matters is how much you get paid.

Third, how do you explain that no devfee and devfee have the exact same hash rate even though it clearly says in the documentation that no devfee will not be as optimized?

Lastly, I did look at your post and you did the exact same thing except for more days... you also used payout amount as the deciding factor lmao. I don't know what pool you used but suprnova has large total hash rate for the coin I'm mining which mean there is very little variance.

LET ME REPEAT AGAIN.

People should do their own test and form their own conclusion. This is just mine.

Any comments on Bminer contacting 104.31.68.221:443/104.31.69.221:443 regularly?

Quoting myself so perhaps this gets a response from the developer.

Well, I'm not the dev but pretty sure I have your answer.

nslookup bminer.me
Name:   bminer.me
Address: 104.31.68.221
Name:   bminer.me
Address: 104.31.69.221

Also, my connection sucks so sometimes I get the following, purportedly because I lose connection to the internets all the time):

So I can only suspect it connects to that IP regularly to update the software and relay the connection string for the dev fee in case he wants to change it.

It could also be used for some nefarious purpose like transferring all your files and private keys to his server, who knows. That's the risk with closed source.

Actually, threeflappp's testing methodology looks fine to me. A 24 hour test is more than sufficient if the pool finds blocks every few minutes and this length of time also corresponds to whattomine's estimated payout based on the average difficulty over the past 24 hours. Running the test for more than 1 day makes it much more difficult to track the average difficulty unless you consistently record actual and estimated payout amounts every day at the same time.

One last point: your overly defensive tone while being a newbie sure seems strange... Usually new members on a forum are well-advised to do more reading and less attacking.

EDIT - I should add that there is a critical component to threeflappp's test: what whattomine predicted the earnings should be for each 24 hour period. Without this info the test is completely and totally useless.

good. but 1 thing. all tests running at different times are shit. difficulty changes and that is enough. but luck changes as well. whatever. all pointless. only same pool, same cards, same settings, same rig, same time frame, different miners.

It doesn't matter if the difficulty changes if you run the test for 24 hours and use the average difficulty from whattomine.com for the past 24 hours. Pool luck *can* affect earnings, but if the pool finds blocks every few minutes and the test is, once again, run for 24 hours then missing or gaining a block or two won't affect earnings by more than a few tenths of a percent. For example, if a block is found every 5 minutes on average that works out to 288 blocks per 24 hour period; gaining or losing 1 block would shift earnings by 1/288, or 0.35%.

This is definitly a SCAM MINER.

It overreports its hashrate, just take a look at the reports of experienced users.
Even worse realbminer or his buddies constantly spam this thread, this forum, reddit and so on with fake reports.
This was noticed on the official Zcash forum where realbminer got banned.
https://forum.z.cash/t/new-miner-bminer-a-fast-equihash-miner-for-cuda-gpus-5-1-0/26197?page=2

That's what the Zcash forum admin states.

Code:
Beware: OP has been Banned for creating multiple sock-puppet accounts to promote this miner.
I wouldn’t trust software from someone who uses deceptive techniques. Links have been removed from original post.
Sock puppet accounts are against the Code of Coduct: https://forum.z.cash/faq

Can other people test no devfee option? Anyone else keeping track of their payouts?

I'm not one to defend developers of mining software (they want to stay anonymous, they charge a shameless amount, etc), but hey, that's another discussion. However, the test you did is inaccurate at best, and I'll explain below.

In fact, there isn't a 100% accurate test. The only test that is 100% accurate is to give the exact same shares to mine twice in a row and measure the time it takes both times to submit the same number of results. You can really only do this either on a private blockchain or a testnet. Anything else means different test conditions for the two runs. But not everyone can/has the expertise do such a test.

The next best test is to run two identical rigs, at the same time, on the same pool, and see the average hashrate at the pool after 24h. There will still be differences even if you used the same miner on both rigs and started at the same time, because each rig will receive different shares to mine, each being different and taking different amounts of time to hash. 24h should give you a better idea though.

Another far simpler test is to simply run for 24h (the longer, the better!) and check whether the pool reports an average hashrate for the whole period equal to

Code:
(1 - n_rejected/n_total) * 0.98 * rate_reported_by_bminer
... where 2% is the devfee. Both Flypool and Nanopool show 24h averages.

What you did is flawed on multiple levels. You did two tests consecutively, and then also looked at the payout. The difficulty of the algo you mine will have changed in the meantime, making the 2nd run easier/harder to mine, but never the same. You also looked at payouts but never mention what currency, because if it is anything other than the coin you mine, and it looks like you are talking about BTC, then the market will also have fluctuated the price by the time of the 2nd run. Shortly put: don't trust what you just did ...

EDIT: In my personal case, the winner is clear: with many cards (e.g. 13 GPUs on a motherboard) both ewbf and dstm drop their hashrate within 30 seconds after they start by about 5%, which is a lot. This is apparently (I don't have the code to say for sure) because of a lot of interrupt requests hogging the CPU. bminer does not, but I haven't yet run the above test. I'm still curious about it and is on my todo list. Anyone?

Nice try.

Bminer reports the hashrates of the GPUs which include the devfee portions as well.

There are many users that consistently report that the miner produces more hashrates for other miners.

You're welcome to give it a try yourself to see whether this is a scam or not.

5.3.0 has released. Several issues have been addressed:

  • Experimental support for EthOS / Ubuntu 14.04.
  • Support AMD K10 CPUs.
  • Automatically restart hanged network connections.
  • Improve compatibilities with mining rigs with more than 8 cards.

Happy mining!

That's much too vague, unconvincing, and very suspicious!

Those look like https ports, so you're sending over encrypted information. I'm happy for you to send your devfee shares over an encrypted connection because I can verify that the IPs you submit to belong to a pool I trust, but in this case you are sending _OTHER_ information to an unknown IP.

You expect us to trust you that you are not sending over anything else.

I don't see the point for this. What runtime and licensing information? You are getting your huge 2% devfee as it is, why this stuff as well?

Will bminer refuse to start/work properly if I block those ports/IPs? If yes, that will be it for me. Much too shady, sorry.

So I can only suspect it connects to that IP regularly to update the software and relay the connection string for the dev fee in case he wants to change it.

It could also be used for some nefarious purpose like transferring all your files and private keys to his server, who knows. That's the risk with closed source.

If you check on nanopool the address it's sending the "2%" dev fee, it generates 144,594SOL/s!!!! If it was only 2%, it would mean 7,229,700 sols total...which is a LOT of people using bminer, looks very fishy.
It's about 1000$ per day of revenue, nice to be a developer Smiley

Any comments on Bminer contacting 104.31.68.221:443/104.31.69.221:443 regularly?

Quoting myself so perhaps this gets a response from the developer.

Well, I'm not the dev but pretty sure I have your answer.

nslookup bminer.me
Name:   bminer.me
Address: 104.31.68.221
Name:   bminer.me
Address: 104.31.69.221

Also, my connection sucks so sometimes I get the following, purportedly because I lose connection to the internets all the time):
Checking updates
Failed to read from the network: Get https://api.bminer.me/v1/init/zec/520: net/http: request canceled while waiting for connection (Client.Timeout exceeded while awaiting headers)
Checking updates

Navigating to that link gives us the following content:

What you did is flawed on multiple levels. You did two tests consecutively, and then also looked at the payout. The difficulty of the algo you mine will have changed in the meantime, making the 2nd run easier/harder to mine, but never the same. You also looked at payouts but never mention what currency, because if it is anything other than the coin you mine, and it looks like you are talking about BTC, then the market will also have fluctuated the price by the time of the 2nd run. Shortly put: don't trust what you just did ...

It was Zclassic. I infered difficulty from estimated rewards on Zclassic which shows how much of that specific coin you may get based on the difficulty at the time. Yes, I understand this is estimated. Difficulty goes up and down all day so you take a 24 hour average. During the test, estimated rewards differences were less than 5%.

Also, no one has yet to dispute my other point about hash rate when dev fee is on/off. There is no difference between the two option in hash rate shown and actual rewards despite documentation that optimizations are disabled.

Someone else please try disabling devfee.

@RealBminer :
I noticed the increase Hashrate of using Bminer (521,67 Sol/s) instead of DSTM 0.58 (505 Sol/s) on my GTX 1070 Ti. That's very good. Good job!
But I also noticed that Accepted shares per minutes of DSTM is higher than of Bminer.
Could you kindly explain what does it mean?
Which impact more on Profit : Better Hashrate or better Accepted shares ?
Thank you.

And dstm has lowest rejected shares than bminer. (on same pool and same hardware)

Could you add in telemetry page reject statistic per card, how much each card accept shares and how much reject ?

I don"t know what is the issue with BMiner, but we are many people to see what you wrote (on same pool and same hardware) :
 1 - the miner hashrate is bigger with BMiner than DSTM, but the number of share is bigger with DSTM than BMiner : in my case, DSTM is more profitable than BMiner
 2 - dstm has lowest rejected shares than bminer.
