Hi everyone,

yes, I am a complete noob, yes, I know mining on a Mac is crazy, but as I have a working eGPU (GTX1070) I was wondering if I am the only one trying to use it for mining.
(no, I am not using my CPU to melt my thousand euros Mac , in case you are asking)
After a couple of days I realized this things, correct me if I am wrong:

- No NVIDIA driver on Mojave, so must use 10.13 , and eGPU works fine.

- Only decent GUI app seems to be Mac Miner, but unfortunately it's no more updated, mining scripts are old , in my case I just managed to use Keccak, but its completely unprofitable.

- ETHMINER , I've been trying for AGES all releases (back to 0.12) but never got a Mhs, best I managed was connection to pool but 0Mhs..

- nheqminer ! The only one I managed to have working properly ! But since Equihash is now completely a matter of ASIC, it's become highly unprofitable
 anyone knows any way to make nheqminer to switch algorithm from Equihash to the new ZHASH (that should be GPU only and ASIC resistant? )

-ccminer , stuck on " Error when running ./build.sh: ./configure: line 6165: syntax error near unexpected token ,' ./configure: line 6165: LIBCURL_CHECK_CONFIG(, 7.15.2, ,'"
even following troubleshooting steps, no way to make it work

Really appreciate all kind of help here, happy mining everyone!
