I read the thread Smiley expect new version soon

Of course I gave you bad advice. Good one is way out of your price range.

Profit estimation per 1 MH/s for Quark and Securecoin:
QRK:1000000*60*60*24*128*0.00000110/16777216/124 = 0.00584 BTC/day
SRC:1000000*60*60*24*5*0.00041263/16777216/1462 = 0.00726 BTC/day


Profit less  than CPU miner ?

Good work on the program.  I tried it for a couple hours crunching Quark and scored a block with it getting 1.2MH/s with an XFX 7970.  Looking forward to the improvments and optimizations that will come with future versions.

I think the idea of a percent fee is an excellent idea akin to pool operators.  The 1/8 (12.5%) fee is fine for the first few early versions to make development worthwile but I think something in the 2-4% would be much more reasonable once it is more widely released with a wider user base.

7970 is mining LTC at 700 Kilohash/s - it is about 0.68 LTC/day or 0.0082 BTC/day. 1.2 Mhash/s Quark mining  is about 5000 QRK/day or 0.0051 BTC/day and 12.5% to author. So it is more profitable to mine LTC or FTC, then Quark with GPU.

Am I right?

Obviously, skimming 1/8 is highway robbery.

I wouldn't say it's robbing to get paid for what you do, 12.5% of income is alot but consider this: you wouldn't get any income if he wouldn't have shared his miner, on 6000-series gpus it's highly profitable even with the fee at the moment

That's correct. My trick with groestl hash works well for VLIW5, but not for GCN Sad

I think the idea of a percent fee is an excellent idea akin to pool operators.
Thank you! (And there is no risk of 51% attack from me Smiley)

Obviously, skimming 1/8 is highway robbery.
12.5% of mined Quarks is a lot, but I hope that 12.5% of mined Primecoins will be generous. I'll lower royalty percent in the next Quark kernel.


Of course I gave you bad advice. Good one is way out of your price range.

My thoughts exactly, There are countless people in the world trying to hustle money away from each other. This is a good example.

Closed source, steals 1/8, possible malware, what could go wrong? Roll Eyes

Check out my coin Photon
Merge Mine 5 other Blake 256 coins - 6x your hash power  https://www.blakecoin.org/

The obvious choice is not always the best choice.

LOOK DEEPER - Look into the Blake 256 Family -- CC

When can we expect to see a new version?
I haven't been able to mine as the intensity is way too high to be run in background.

I hope to release new version tomorrow. (The kernel was done on August 2nd, the first smelter version was ready on October 15th. You got the idea about the development speed Smiley)

They are in my wallet Smiley I'll lower royalty a bit in the next version.

New version is ready, download it here
Royalty decreased from 12.5% to 10%
Kernel speed improved for ~40%, from 1.04 to 1.47 MH/s on my 6770
New command line options
-w - worksize, can be 32,64,128 or 256
-g - number of GPU threads
-i - intensity, measures as milliseconds to run the kernel. Don't worry, 100 is pretty small value Smiley
Happy mining!

Gonna try it...we need pool support.
I think 10% is a fair cut for a capable gpu miner.

Worse than expected Sad
Quark and Securecoin fall faster than I can boost the kernel, I'll wait and watch exchange rate before putting more work into Quark kernel...

linux version available?
Which flavor of Linux do you use? Actually, smelter is developed on Linux Smiley I must check that nothing GPL'ed gets into the binary and setup VMs for most popular distributions.

I think 10% is a fair cut for a capable gpu miner.
10% is a fair cut for the only gpu miner, a good competing miner will force me to drop the royalty. Or improve the speed Smiley

Saucy Salamander, x64?
(I'm on debian, may be there is some way to build universal linux binary, but VM route would be faster)
