@jstefanop when can we expect the node and wallet function for the apollo ?

Hoping to have at least the full node feature released in the next month or two. Made a big mistake in hindsight and ordered the 256MB RAM version of the MCU instead of the 512, so trying to see if we can get the node to run stable with just 256MB of RAM, or if we need to swap the MCUs out.

Anyone else have setup issues? I bought an Apollo and first the sd card that came with it corrupted. Now that I found a different card and re flashed the firmware the only pool I can setup is the litecoinpool.com and it only mines on the donation. The machine wont even connect if donation is turned off. So far all I have managed to do is mine for donation. Not sure what Im going wrong here. Frustrating so far. Is there an updated firmware/rom?

Can anyone post an example of setups to see?

Please visit the support thread here for support questions: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5081750

This sounds like a pool setup issue (ie your not putting in the correct pool username and password and its defaulting to the donation pool because it cant connect to yours).

Double check what the pool requires for username and password, and make sure you put it correct (they are usually case sensitive).

No, I’m party mining. If straight ltc mining, according to the calculator, you’ll get about 39 cents before electric cost. Our party is small, about 10 miners, so to me it’s almost like Solo mining.

Hello all. This is my first post here but had to join to brag about my Apollo busting a DGB Block. I missed the one that was found last week but have had my Apollo on the ZergPool Party for about 2 1/2 days. I saved an image but don't know how to put it on here. Out of the 696.202 DGB for the block, the ten of us in the Party each got over 69 DGB converted to LTC.... I'm Happy   Grin

How loud are these when in Turbo mode compared to the S3+ Antminer?

As long as its 10-14V output and can output 200W I don't see why not. You would most likely have to make your own PCIE 6 pin connector for it though.

My Apollo arrived today. Paired with my CORSAIR HX850i Platinum 850 Watt PSU, it barely makes any noise in ECO mode (100 Mh/s) and hashes as advertised in all modes. I would not call it loud even in the higher hash modes. Great miner! Will buy future models as well  Cool

URL: stratum+tcp://scrypt.mine.zergpool.com:3433/#skipcbcheck#xnsub (drop the /#skipcbcheck#xnsub if you like)
Username: (Your LTC Wallet Address)
Password: c=LTC,m=party.Apollo,d=50000 (no need for diff if you don't want to)

You can also add an ID or mine a specific coin with addtional settings in the password box. Go to the ZergPool Main page for help doing that.

At 4 cent power cost my numbers show this will take 65 months just to pay itself off.

I am beyond confused here....for the same price you can buy 3 used L3+ units and make 13x the monthly profit and pay the units off in ~4 months

Is there some secret way of making a profit or are people willing to throw away money just to have a shiny on their desk? Its not like Litecoin is some innovative blockchain thats going to explode in the future, its basically on life support as a coin already...
