24-Mar-2014 - First public beta release.

We have been selling mining contracts on eBay with some initial difficulties, and recent success.
During that time my wife and I needed a scheduling system. Changing each miner rig by hand was getting to be too much.

Then there was the consideration of expansion. Not just greater hash rates but more rigs to handle multiple contracts and even aggregation of rigs to offer high GHash rates.

The choice was made to go with MinePeon running on Rasberry Pi.
I found a seller who provided a pre-configured RPi with Minepeon installed.

After 4 weeks of customizing Minepeon and creating a centralize scheduling server that can handle aggregation of rigs and client pool assignment.

We are now running 3 Rigs and realized that there is no limit to the number of Rig nodes this could support.

My wife and her small team handle selling the contracts, customer support and scheduling, this is the real hard part. Ensuring the customer have a pleasant experience brings them back from more.

Back to the system we created. We now have a name for the system

This is just the beginning of the story......

I've been working with 808 for a few weeks now as he has been building the infrastructure to get this project going and I'm happy to have done a part in helping out.  He's been great at keeping me up to date on his progress and I'm happy to see everything coming together.

Congrats to 808 for getting this far.

Ummmm I know I don't post on here often, but 808 is a solid dude. He helped us get a patch for the Hex16c miner's to run off MinePeon. Probably doesnt mean much with as little activity as I have, but I'd vouch for him

Hello again,
As quickly as the difficulty is rising, we are getting pressure and interest to get the beta out to you the miners.

This first beta is lacking some of the bells and whistles, this beta version is ready for early adopters interested in being part of the platform.
We have the image available for download either from torrent or direct http download:


* Extract the img file from the archive
* Write the image to an SD Card
* Boot your RPi with the SD Card
* Setup your miners
* Setup your pools and workers
* Contact us to complete your registration
* Whistle while you get paid*

While working with one mine owner, we used bfgminer's proxy capability to allow a Antminer S1 180 to work in the GHashForCash network. Love this little computer!

Lease your GHash and get paid.
If you have any questions please stop by the website where you will find a live chat system.
Thank you for assistance in making the project a success.

(Wistling not required to recieve payment)*
