Pyraminng,

With the difficulty of mining BTC going up so much, is there a point at which moving the GPU miners over to some scrypt based altcoin? It seems like it would be much more effective to mine some altcoin and then convert those proceeds to BTC on an exchange than to continue to mine BTC with GPUs.

Pick the top 5 scrypt based coins off of coinwarz and start mining those. Then every few days convert that into BTC on an exchange and distribute that out to everyone. It would be a bit of an effort to code that I imagine, but I bet there are a bunch of us here that would be willing to help with that effort if you gave us the go ahead. Even before the code was done though, the GPUs could start mining the altcoins.

He could even consider using a multi mining pool, some autoconvert and send BTC to a specified address.  I suspect that might offer the smoothest integration with the system pyramaning has/had?...

why do you think, pyramining does GPU-mining?

Because they haven't been paying attention.

Your name is Pyra-Proxy and you have no idea the system he has running?
Is this still you? Or was your account hacked?

Sorry, I should have said FPGA mining, which is what pyra was installing before ASICs came along. But from what I understand, those are being used to mine scrypt coins now.

The fpgas he was running have been shutdown.

The concept works on fpga's and asics on non-merged mine sha coins.

So I`m guessing pyramining is most likely dead.

Ahhh, I must have missed that post. Is there a reason not to mine scrypt coins with them then?

Besides the fact that it's impossible? All the mining FPGAs were made for SHA256 hashing only.

He responded in this topic on the 17th of february, that is recent. It happens often that he isn't around here for a month.

Good day,

is there a possibility for me to verify that im owner of an account?I did send BTC to pyra from an exchange and i dont have the private keys to sign a message.
And i would like to sell my acc for 0,2442.

FPGAs are programmables

Last I checked, Scrypt mining requires quite a bit of onboard RAM. FPGA miners did not have that.

Yes it does, plus he would have to reprogram them for scrypt. And while I have no doubt he is fully capable of that, why would he spend the time doing that when the power usage on those fpgas is likely through the roof compared to the newest gpus.
