Hello! I got a $0.50/hour high-CPU EC2 instance (XL, which supposedly has 8 cores, all of Intel Xeon E5-2650 style. The max PPS I have seen is 30. It has been running over an hour. My desktop i5-2500k is doing much better. Any ideas? Sad

Perhaps higher clock rate is just better.

Fuck you and your EC2 instance. Use a regular system like everyone else.

Yeah, I have it running on a ton of other hardware too. EC2 just seemed like a nice system to mine this with. Entropy is too low, and I haven't tried getting direct access to the hardware for better random number generation with something like rngd. Maybe this afternoon. Smiley

If you shit blood when you laugh, it's time to see a doctor, mate.

EDIT: And it's not really botnet mineable until someone makes a standalone CPU miner, dipshit.

Not true, there is a script here for you to run the daemon with that would work fine for a botnet.  It automatically sends all mined funds to your address

It's not clear yet whether paying those hourly prices to mine the coins is even profitable.
