In what mining pool you are mining with your z9 mini. I used to work with suprnova and mining pool hub. Suprnova not support Asic
any tips ?

Fron my experience Flypool (https://zcash.flypool.org/) pays out the best if mining ZCash. SlushPool (https://slushpool.com) is good too. Both of these are rock solid stability wise.

I generally mine at Prohashing (https://prohashing.com) because it lets me choose any payout coin I like and their profitability seems equivalent to the rest of the pools despite their 5% fee. You'll DEFINITELY need a backup pool if mining with them because their servers give problems once in a while.

I am on Mining Pool Hub.. Seems fine.. Have you tried that?... its a solid service too.
One member mentioned that earnings were lower than expected using whattomine calculator... any comments anyone?...

I've tried miningpoolhub and they're fine. Two problems I have with them is:
a) Statistics reporting is HORRIBLE. Don't like their dashboard - it has nothing except a silly meter type thing indicating the "rough" hashrate for your miners. Doesn't update frequently enough either.
b) Conversion to the coin of your choice is not "real time". At Prohashing the mined coin is converted to the payout coin at the time of mining - and credit given to you is as of that time. At Miningpoolhub, they batch convert it some time in the future - and your payout depends on the value of the mined and the payout coins at that time in the future.

I wil try out flypool. I now mine with MPH but i never try the auto exchange.

4.5 means two of the boards dropped out, hence you get a third of the hash rate.

Interesting, on the Ant Miner web console, it says all 3 are online, just hashing at 1.5k each...  Most folks were reporting they would see HW errors or the 3rd card going to 0 when their overclock was too high, so I was assuming this was slightly different.

I mine Zhash.pro (zcash.zhash.pro) with my z9mini.
The pool is new so they start a prom. 0%fee right now
So I try to mine with it.

Well, in my case I would see 2 hashing at 0. So maybe a slightly different scenarios.

I agree with your views on MPH.. On Prohashing do you just put the one algo in and Prohashing converts all mined coins to BTC and deposits BTC.. Or do we need each and individual wallets?... Cant see much about algo for ASIC.. thanks

Prohashing currently has 7 supported algorithms. I connect all my miners there. My S9's on SHA256, L3+'s on Scrypt, Z9's on Equihash and rigs on Ethash, Neoscrypt and Lyra2REv2.

Reason I have everything connected there is because they have a nifty feature where you can put in your electricity cost and watt consumption into the password field for the miners and they will automatically generate a graph showing your consumption and profit per day. This is very important for me cuz I can see at a glance that I'm not mining at a loss overall on any given day. (I purposely mine scrypt though it's at a loss right now - I make up for the loss using my equihash Z9 hashrate).

Another cool feature they have is payout. They have about 50 coins and you can choose payouts in any ratio you like. All you need to do is specify a payout address for each coin you want a payout in - and it'll be done. It doesn't matter what algorithm you mine - you'll receive payout as you like. See a sample screenshot below (Note that this is a free imgur account so bandwidth may be limited. If you don't see the image, that's probably why).



They merge mine each algorithm and are good with profits. Despite their 5% fee they occasionally manage to beat other pools in profitability.

BUT.... IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a small operation run by two extremely hard working brothers in the U.S. So:
  • They don't have redundancy and failsafe's like other large pools do. Their servers crash once every often - so you MUST HAVE fallback pools configured. If you do, then it's not much of an issue since failures are never more than 15-20 mins on average, about once a week.
  • They insist on your identification if your income exceeds $600 to comply with U.S. laws. I wasn't about to do that and just mined with them to try it for a bit but found them so (potentially) good that submitted my details and continued mining with them.

If they clean up their server reliability issues, they'll easily be one of the best pools out there.

Hi there, Thank you for your good heart
We are really hardworking on the mining pool industry

Ya our zcash pool is the new pool.
It only operates for few days
But we have a strong farm of 1.5msol to show their support to us

Due to the insufficient hashrate of our pool. The payment of this moment is quite frustrated. (But we actually found two blocks in three days!!!!)
But we strongly believe that the blocks will be found regularly in few days

Please join together my friend.
We have a discord channel, you can click into zcash.zhash.pro and search for it.

Hope to see you soon!!!!^^



Zhash.pro   -  We are the most honest and transparent pool in the world.

Hi guys, could anyone post some figures on how much ZEC you are mining in 24 hours and also what mining pools you are using? I am mining with a first batch Antminer Z9 mini OC to 750mhz and I am getting 0.11 ZEC on Antpool every 24 hours. I have seen a post a few days back that we should at least get 0.15 ZEC. Is this true? Should I be changing the pool? Thanks

Hi there,
Some A9 miners and z9mini miners are mining in zcash.zhash.pro and zen.zhash.pro
And the result is quite impressive
For Zen pool, there are 18msol hashrate are mining in zhash.pro
It is nearly 20% hashrate of network hashrate

You may try Zhash.pro.
The revenue will be the best on it.

But truly speaking, the revenue is different for everyday.
No need to too worry about it.
Just set the miner in zhash.pro
Then everything will be ok.

Can anyone advise please? or comment?

I have a batch 2 Z9 Mini overclocked to 650, so not pushing to much, getting all three cards hashing and an average 14.5. No HW Errors....

However, i get approx 30 rejected shares in say, a 24 hour period?

Is this good/bad? Is this to be expected if overclocking? Should i reduce overclock?

Thanks Guys

Just unpacked another Z9 Mini. Overclocked it to 650.. and board 2 has a chip that blows out (00x0) rebooted it and 2 mins in same again....
Just droped the freq to 500 runs fine.. popped it up to 625 and still fine for now..... board 2 is very lazy 3.61

Update just blown out again 00x0 at 625
reduced to 600

I am reading other sources that report exactly the same as you, and this is putting me off getting another 2 or 3 of these. I think i will go for the Z9 big boy one next.

May i ask on your other mini's do you get any 'Rejected' shares? As a newb to Asic mining, i am used to GPU mining, and avoid these rejected shares, by dropping the offending card(s) a tad in the overclocking specs.

Not sure in ASIC mining if these are the norm as the hash rate is huge compared to GPU's, or should i throttle down a bit?

Whats your ratio of accepted/rejected?
I consider anything below 5% as good.
Rejected shares can be caused by internet latency or pool side issue, not solely because of OC.

One of my Z9 mini OC to 700 has been running for 4 days.
Accepted/Rejected are 56564/55 which translates to less than 0.1%.

Thanks Guys....

Hours run since last reboot (Change Pool) is 21 hrs, Accepted 7685, rejected 30, so i make that around .39%, so guessing that is good/ok!

I am used to GPU mining with lower hashing rates, and i avoid any rejected shares.

Thanks again for Noob help ;-)

Running at 650 MHz, over the past 23 hours, 46,505 accepted shares, 54 rejected (0.116%) over on Nanopool.

Rejects can have lots of variables, I used to get lots of rejects on my Vegas when I ran XMR-Stak, but after switching to SRBMiner I get almost none.  Same thing goes for pools.  When I mine ETH on my 1070 rig at nicehash I get lots of rejects, none at Nanopool.

WOW! am i doing something wrong? you get 46K shares in 23 hours? are you on a Big boy Z9 or is my Mini really really underperforming?

It’s just a mini, but Maybe it’s because I’m using nano pool, they just added support for the Z9 so maybe there’s less people over there. Not sure, but you may want to try them out. I have use them for ETH and XMR for quite a while and been very happy with them.

Even so, a different pool surely would not give you that much of a difference, that's like 7 times the shares i am getting?? Just WOW! How much you earning a day? (USD)

Maybe something is goofy with the antminer reporting then, I am earning about 0.12 ZEC/day.

Edit: just checked my stats at Nanopool and they think I have 15k-16k shares/hour so I don't know WTF is going on...  Earnings seem on par with most people though.

Yes that is on par for a Mini.

I was for a time Hugely Jealous of your 46K shares per day? Maybe it is my pool that is not reporting right Smiley end of the day as long as we are earning who cares about the numbers Wink
