I recently picked up an Antminer B3 and you can checkout my review on it here if you're interested

https://youtu.be/O5jmj0LL6wM


More importantly looks like their algo has been cracked with a linux mining os?
https://goo.gl/xW8W9E

UPDATE - Reliable reports of 4x 1050 TI matching antminer b3 hashrate now.

1050s pulling 1/8 the hash of a b3 :O -- that would be around $2 USD per day on current prices -- anyone else messing around with this?

Going price of b3 http://geni.us/AEe9wV and current 1050 TI prices http://geni.us/Ec7v this is a no brainer. .


Waiting on reply in our discord for more info

Does anyone have a translation of the uupool linked page about GPU mining and if the Google translation of the page is correct? I'm currently away from my PC right now and my Chinese isn't good enough to translate what's written in the page you linked. I'm trying to access the Google translate site on mobile but it redirects me to the app that isn't capable of translating the whole thing.

Otherwise, it's quite interesting that someone managed to crack the Bytom algo. I suspected it was minable by regular GPUs when I found the B3s were powered by Sophon chips, but now I guess we have a confirmation. I wonder if this'll have a large impact on existing B3 miners now- it shouldn't be too big of a deal considering the B3s should still mine much faster than any GPUs that are capable of mining Bytom.

If this is true than maybe Bitmain can fork to ..oh wait HAHAHA

Any way to find the setup for gpu mining this? I would love to test it out.

You can load the miner on a linux box and run it.  I converted one of my SMOS miners over to it.

If a 1060 and a 1050ti is hashing 265h/s and the b3 is hashing 780h/s then no its not faster than the gpus. It would be marginally more energy efficent though but not a whole lot. I'm gonna assume the 1060 is doing 60% of that 265h/s that puts the 1060 at about 160h/s. 780/160=4.9 1060s. 1060s seem to be reasonably energy efficient so without knowing anything at all lets assume 120w per card.. 600w total vs 376w.

The question I have is if these really are ASICs built for an algorithm thats supposedly built for ASICs.. why isn't it substantially more efficient like normal ASICs that were built for algos that weren't designed to be on ASICs? I feel like they're probably more powerful and they're redirecting the majority of the computational power of the device somewhere else but getting the miner to pay for the hardware an power they're siphoning off for personal profit.

Or maybe i'm just dumb Tongue

what kind of hashrates are you getting and with what equipment / power draw?

The link to http://uupool.cn/course/btm is not working - can you load it on some other site for download to help us out?  Thank you in advance

The site seems to be working now - anything special to do for installing the miner ... youtube video you've seen in the past (obviously not this miner but a how to .. otherwise I can check .. just hoping you had a better resource than random looking around.

Funny, some trolls said that only bitmain asic could mine this coin, said it would not be possible with gpus, so in the end we all see that another coin developer made a contract with bitmain ehhe, this was not a bribe, it was a whole blood contract hehe

I downloaded and extracted the miner on (smos/Ubuntu)
     wget http://7fvi19.com1.z0.glb.clouddn.com/btm-miner-1.0.tar.bz2
Changed the address.txt file to my wallet.
I killed the miners that were running. (SMOS Only)
Ran the miner.
Watch the performance 'tail -fn 1 /var/tmp/miner.log'

I had some help with killing the miners. I had to create a bash script to do that. If you are running SMOS then let me know and I will show you how.

Well the mining room is much cooler. Need to figure out how to make the cards work harder with this miner.

If I read correctly this is NVIDIA only?

Congrats ! This is a good payback to bitmain, for them to see how it feels when they put their nose to GPU algos ...
1070 and 1080ti should be super profitable
Claymore you should make a miner

Yup Nvidia and Linux only.

I'm currently debating about setting up a couple of 1080ti's on a linux box but I would have to drop other projects to do it.
