Mining noob, I have some questions

Hi everyone, a quick intro here: I come from a professional horticulture background. I've been learning about computers, networking, network security and Linux sys. admin for the last two years. I built a bunch of gaming computers for my kids and I with a bonus check I got in fall of 2017, right before the 2017 "bitcoin bubble". By luck I grabbed all my parts before the price of GPU's skyrocketed. All I've been doing though is learning about Linux and game development, learning digital art like 3D modeling, and streaming video games.
I'm now learning to mine ZEC with tpruvot/ccminer 2.3.1 in Ubuntu 20.04 with Nvidia proprietary driver vers. 440 & CUDA toolkit 10.1. I'm just learning how to do this and understand I'm not making a profit. I'ts more a learning experience and a hobby sort of thing for now. I dont really care if the system breaks, I have another computer with AMD RX560 that I work and game on Linux with. I cant mine with the pollaris GPU because I cant install OpenCL. There is no support for 20.04 from catalyst driver as of now.
TL;DR I'm a noob and wondering why my hashrate is what it is. I am only using 1 GPU as of now (Nvidia 1050Ti 4GB) and mining on a pool. I get an average of 140 Sol/s. Is this essentially the same as H/s and is that a normal number for my card? Should I add a 2nd GPU I have if it's only a 1050 2GB? Also, I am using nvtop & htop packages to monitor PC stats, it shows it's using 99% of GPU and 100% of a single core of my CPU (intel i5 6402P @ 3.2GHz) fans and temps are good.
But it shows I'm only using .6GB / 4GB while mining, is that right? Shouldn't it be using more memory? Would it be overkill to mine with CPU miner at the same time as the 2 cards?
Sorry about the essay, and thanks for your time

Groestlcoin 6th Anniversary Release

Introduction

Dear Groestlers, it goes without saying that 2020 has been a difficult time for millions of people worldwide. The groestlcoin team would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone our best to everyone coping with the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19. Let it bring out the best in us all and show that collectively, we can conquer anything.
The centralised banks and our national governments are facing unprecedented times with interest rates worldwide dropping to record lows in places. Rest assured that this can only strengthen the fundamentals of all decentralised cryptocurrencies and the vision that was seeded with Satoshi's Bitcoin whitepaper over 10 years ago. Despite everything that has been thrown at us this year, the show must go on and the team will still progress and advance to continue the momentum that we have developed over the past 6 years.
In addition to this, we'd like to remind you all that this is Groestlcoin's 6th Birthday release! In terms of price there have been some crazy highs and lows over the years (with highs of around $2.60 and lows of $0.000077!), but in terms of value– Groestlcoin just keeps getting more valuable! In these uncertain times, one thing remains clear – Groestlcoin will keep going and keep innovating regardless. On with what has been worked on and completed over the past few months.

UPDATED - Groestlcoin Core 2.18.2

This is a major release of Groestlcoin Core with many protocol level improvements and code optimizations, featuring the technical equivalent of Bitcoin v0.18.2 but with Groestlcoin-specific patches. On a general level, most of what is new is a new 'Groestlcoin-wallet' tool which is now distributed alongside Groestlcoin Core's other executables.
NOTE: The 'Account' API has been removed from this version which was typically used in some tip bots. Please ensure you check the release notes from 2.17.2 for details on replacing this functionality.

How to Upgrade?

Windows
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the installer.
OSX
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), run the dmg and drag Groestlcoin Core to Applications.

ALL NEW - Groestlcoin Moonshine iOS/Android Wallet

Built with React Native, Moonshine utilizes Electrum-GRS's JSON-RPC methods to interact with the Groestlcoin network.
GRS Moonshine's intended use is as a hot wallet. Meaning, your keys are only as safe as the device you install this wallet on. As with any hot wallet, please ensure that you keep only a small, responsible amount of Groestlcoin on it at any given time.

ALL NEW! – HODL GRS Android Wallet

HODL GRS connects directly to the Groestlcoin network using SPV mode and doesn't rely on servers that can be hacked or disabled.
HODL GRS utilizes AES hardware encryption, app sandboxing, and the latest security features to protect users from malware, browser security holes, and even physical theft. Private keys are stored only in the secure enclave of the user's phone, inaccessible to anyone other than the user.
Simplicity and ease-of-use is the core design principle of HODL GRS. A simple recovery phrase (which we call a Backup Recovery Key) is all that is needed to restore the user's wallet if they ever lose or replace their device. HODL GRS is deterministic, which means the user's balance and transaction history can be recovered just from the backup recovery key.

ALL NEW! – Vanity Search Vanity Address Generator

NOTE: NVidia GPU or any CPU only. AMD graphics cards will not work with this address generator.
VanitySearch is a command-line Segwit-capable vanity Groestlcoin address generator. Add unique flair when you tell people to send Groestlcoin. Alternatively, VanitySearch can be used to generate random addresses offline.
If you're tired of the random, cryptic addresses generated by regular groestlcoin clients, then VanitySearch is the right choice for you to create a more personalized address.
VanitySearch is a groestlcoin address prefix finder. If you want to generate safe private keys, use the -s option to enter your passphrase which will be used for generating a base key as for BIP38 standard (VanitySearch.exe -s "My PassPhrase" FXPref). You can also use VanitySearch.exe -ps "My PassPhrase" which will add a crypto secure seed to your passphrase.
VanitySearch may not compute a good grid size for your GPU, so try different values using -g option in order to get the best performances. If you want to use GPUs and CPUs together, you may have best performances by keeping one CPU core for handling GPU(s)/CPU exchanges (use -t option to set the number of CPU threads).

ALL NEW! – Electrum Personal Server

Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server aims to make using Electrum Groestlcoin wallet more secure and more private. It makes it easy to connect your Electrum-GRS wallet to your own full node.
It is an implementation of the Electrum-grs server protocol which fulfils the specific need of using the Electrum-grs wallet backed by a full node, but without the heavyweight server backend, for a single user. It allows the user to benefit from all Groestlcoin Core's resource-saving features like pruning, blocks only and disabled txindex. All Electrum-GRS's feature-richness like hardware wallet integration, multi-signature wallets, offline signing, seed recovery phrases, coin control and so on can still be used, but connected only to the user's own full node.
Full node wallets are important in Groestlcoin because they are a big part of what makes the system be trust-less. No longer do people have to trust a financial institution like a bank or PayPal, they can run software on their own computers. If Groestlcoin is digital gold, then a full node wallet is your own personal goldsmith who checks for you that received payments are genuine.
Full node wallets are also important for privacy. Using Electrum-GRS under default configuration requires it to send (hashes of) all your Groestlcoin addresses to some server. That server can then easily spy on your transactions. Full node wallets like Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server would download the entire blockchain and scan it for the user's own addresses, and therefore don't reveal to anyone else which Groestlcoin addresses they are interested in.
Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can also broadcast transactions through Tor which improves privacy by resisting traffic analysis for broadcasted transactions which can link the IP address of the user to the transaction. If enabled this would happen transparently whenever the user simply clicks "Send" on a transaction in Electrum-grs wallet.
Note: Currently Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can only accept one connection at a time.

Mining ERC-918 Tokens (0xBitcoin)

GENERAL INFORMATION

0xBitcoin (0xBTC) is the first mineable ERC20 token on Ethereum. It uses mining for distribution, unlike all previous ERC20 tokens which were assigned to the contract deployer upon creation. 0xBTC is the first implementation of the EIP918 mineable token standard (https://eips.ethereum.org/EIPS/eip-918), which opened up the possibility of a whole new class of mineable assets on Ethereum. Without any ICO, airdrop, pre-mine, or founder’s reward, 0xBitcoin is arguably the most decentralized asset in the Ethereum ecosystem, including even Ether (ETH), which had a large ICO.
The goal of 0xBitcoin is to be looked at as a currency and store of value asset on Ethereum. Its 21 million token hard cap and predictable issuance give it scarcity and transparency in terms of monetary policy, both things that Ether lacks. 0xBitcoin has certain advantages over PoW based currencies, such as compatibility with smart contracts and decentralized exchanges. In addition, 0xBTC cannot be 51% attacked (without attacking Ethereum), is immune from the “death spiral”, and will receive the benefits of scaling and other improvements to the Ethereum network.

GETTING 0xBITCOIN TOKENS

0xBitcoin can be mined using typical PC hardware, traded on exchanges (either decentralized or centralized) or purchased from specific sites/contracts.

-Mined using PC hardware

-Traded on exchanges such as


MINING IN A NUTSHELL

0xBitcoin is a Smart Contract on the Ethereum network, and the concept of Token Mining is patterned after Bitcoin's distribution. Rather than solving 'blocks', work is issued by the contract, which also maintains a Difficulty which goes up or down depending on how often a Reward is issued. Miners can put their hardware to work to claim these rewards, in concert with specialized software, working either by themselves or together as a Pool. The total lifetime supply of 0xBitcoin is 21,000,000 tokens and rewards will repeatedly halve over time.
The 0xBitcoin contract was deployed by Infernal_Toast at Ethereum address: 0xb6ed7644c69416d67b522e20bc294a9a9b405b31
0xBitcoin's smart contract, running on the Ethereum network, maintains a changing "Challenge" (that is generated from the previous Ethereum block hash) and an adjusting Difficulty Target. Like traditional mining, the miners use the SoliditySHA3 algorithm to solve for a Nonce value that, when hashed alongside the current Challenge and their Minting Ethereum Address, is less-than-or-equal-to the current Difficulty Target. Once a miner finds a solution that satisfies the requirements, they can submit it into the contract (calling the Mint() function). This is most often done through a mining pool. The Ethereum address that submits a valid solution first is sent the 50 0xBTC Reward.
(In the case of Pools, valid solutions that do not satisfy the full difficulty specified by the 0xBitcoin contract, but that DO satisfy the Pool's specified Minimum Share Difficulty, get a 'share'. When one of the Miners on that Pool finds a "Full" solution, the number of shares each miner's address has submitted is used to calculate how much of the 50 0xBTC reward they will get. After a Reward is issued, the Challenge changes.
A Retarget happens every 1024 rewards. In short, the Contract tries to target an Average Reward Time of about 60 times the Ethereum block time. So (at the time of this writing):
~13.9 seconds \* 60 = 13.9 minutes
If the average Reward Time is longer than that, the difficulty will decrease. If it's shorter, it will increase. How much longer or shorter it was affects the magnitude with which the difficulty will rise/drop, to a maximum of 50%. * Click Here to visit the stats page~ (https://0x1d00ffff.github.io/0xBTC-Stats) to see recent stats and block times, feel free to ask questions about it if you need help understanding it.

MINING HARDWARE

Presently, 0xBitcoin and "Alt Tokens" can be mined on GPUs, CPUs, IGPs (on-CPU graphics) and certain FPGAs. The most recommended hardware is nVidia graphics cards for their efficiency, ubiquity and relatively low cost. As general rules, the more cores and the higher core frequency (clock) you can get, the more Tokens you will earn!

How do I mine Dogecoin?

How do I mine Dogecoin?
Let’s take a lucky guess that you’re here today because you’ve heard a lot about cryptocurrencies and you want to get involved, right? If you’re a community person, Dogecoin mining might be the perfect start for you!
Bitcoin was the first in 2009, and now there are hundreds of cryptocurrencies. These new coins (that operate on their own native blockchain) are called altcoins or alternative coins. One popular altcoin is Dogecoin. It can be bought, sold and traded, just like Bitcoin. It can also be mined!
So, what is Dogecoin mining?
You’ll know what hardware and what software you need to get started. You’ll also know whether or not Dogecoin mining is for you!
So, where would you like to start? The beginning? Great choice. Let’s have a quick look at how Dogecoin got started.
A (Very) Short History of Dogecoin
In 2013, an Australian named Jackson Palmer and an American named Billy Markus became friends. They became friends because they both liked cryptocurrencies. However, they also thought the whole thing was getting too serious so they decided to create their own.
Palmer and Markus wanted their coin to be more fun and more friendly than other crypto coins. They wanted people who wouldn’t normally care about crypto to get involved.
They decided to use a popular meme as their mascot — a Shiba Inu dog.

https://preview.redd.it/rymnyyz1iil31.png?width=303&format=png&auto=webp&s=f138e3fe56eef9c6b0e7f49b84fefc41fb83e5aa
Dogecoin was launched on December 6th, 2013. Since then it has become popular because it’s playful and good-natured. Just like its mascot!
Dogecoin has become well-known for its use in charitable acts and online tipping. In 2014, $50,000 worth of Dogecoin was donated to the Jamaican Bobsled Team so they could go to the Olympics. Dogecoin has also been used to build wells in Kenya. Isn’t that awesome!
Users of social platforms – like Reddit – can use Dogecoin to tip or reward each other for posting good content.
Dogecoin has the 27th largest market cap of any cryptocurrency.
Note: A market cap (or market capitalization) is the total value of all coins on the market.
So, Dogecoin is a popular altcoin, known for being fun, friendly and kind. It’s a coin with a dog on it! You love it already, don’t you?
Next, I want to talk about how mining works…
What is Mining?
To understand mining, you first need to understand how cryptocurrencies work. Cryptocurrencies are peer-to-peer digital currencies. This means that they allow money to be transferred from one person to another without using a bank.
Every cryptocurrency transaction is recorded on a huge digital database called a blockchain. The database is stored across thousands of computers called nodes. Nodes put together groups of new transactions and add them to the blockchain. These groups are called blocks.
Each block of transactions has to be checked by all the nodes on the network before being added to the blockchain. If nodes didn’t check transactions, people could pretend that they have more money than they really do (I know I would!).
Confirming transactions (mining) requires a lot of computer power and electricity so it’s quite expensive.
Blockchains don’t have paid employees like banks, so they offer a reward to users who confirm transactions. The reward for confirming new transactions is new cryptocurrency. The process of being rewarded with new currency for confirming transactions is what we call “mining”!

https://preview.redd.it/rcut2jx3iil31.png?width=598&format=png&auto=webp&s=8d78d41c764f4fe4e6386da4f40a66556a873b87
It is called mining because it’s a bit like digging for gold or diamonds. Instead of digging with a shovel for gold, you’re digging with your computer for crypto coins!
Each cryptocurrency has its own blockchain. Different ways of mining new currency are used by different coins where different rewards are offered.
So, how do you mine Dogecoin? What’s special about Dogecoin mining? Let’s see…
What is Dogecoin Mining?
Dogecoin mining is the process of being rewarded with new Dogecoin for checking transactions on the Dogecoin blockchain. Simple, right? Well no, it’s not quite that simple, nothing ever is!
Mining Dogecoin is like a lottery. To play the lottery you have to do some work. Well, actually your computer (or node) has to do some work! This work involves the confirming and checking of transactions which I talked about in the last section.
Lots of computers work on the same block of transactions at the same time but the only one can win the reward of new coins. The one that earns the new coins is the node that adds the new block of transactions to the old block of transactions. This is completed using complex mathematical equations.
The node that solves the mathematical problem first wins! It can then attach the newly confirmed block of transactions to the rest of the blockchain.
Most cryptocurrency mining happens this way. However, Dogecoin mining differs from other coins in several important areas. These areas are;
  • Algorithm: Each cryptocurrency has a set of rules for mining new currency. These rules are called a mining or hashing algorithm.
  • Block Time: This is the average length of time it takes for a new block of transactions to be checked and added to the blockchain.
  • Difficulty: This is a number that represents how hard it is to mine each new block of currency. You can use the difficulty number to work out how likely you are to win the mining lottery. Mining difficulty can go up or down depending on how many miners there are. The difficulty is also adjusted by the coin’s protocol to make sure that the block time stays the same.
  • Reward: This is the amount of new currency that is awarded to the miner of each new block.
Now, let’s compare how DogeCoin mining works compared to Litecoin and Bitcoin…
Mining Comparison
Bitcoin uses SHA-256 to guide the mining of new currency and the other two use Scrypt. This is an important difference because Scrypt mining needs a lot less power and is a lot quicker than SHA-256. This makes mining easier for miners with less powerful computers. Fans of Litecoin and Dogecoin think that they are fairer than Bitcoin because more people can mine them.
Note: In 2014, Litecoin and Dogecoin merged mining. This means they made it possible to mine both coins in the same process. Dogecoin mining is now linked with Litecoin mining. It’s like two different football teams playing home games in the same stadium!
Mining Dogecoin is a lot faster than mining Litecoin or Bitcoin. The block reward is much higher too!
Don’t get too excited though (sorry!). Dogecoin is still worth a lot less than Bitcoin and Litecoin. A reward of ten thousand Dogecoin is worth less than thirty US Dollars. A reward of 12.5 Bitcoin is currently worth 86,391.63 US Dollars!
However, it’s not as bad as it sounds. Dogecoin mining difficulty is more than one million times less than Bitcoin mining difficulty. This means you are much more likely to win the block reward when you mine Dogecoin.
Now I’ve told you about what Dogecoin mining is and how it works, would you like to give it a try?
Let’s see what you need to do to become a Dogecoin miner…
How to Mine Dogecoin
There are two ways to mine Dogecoin, solo (by yourself) or in a Dogecoin mining pool.
Note: A Dogecoin pool is a group of users who share their computing power to increase the odds of winning the race to confirm transactions. When one of the nodes in a pool confirms a transaction, it divides the reward between the users of the pool equally.
Dogecoin Mining: Solo vs Pool
When you mine as a part of a Dogecoin pool, you have to pay fees. Also, when the pool mines a block you will only receive a small portion of the total reward. However, pools mine blocks much more often than solo miners. So, your chance of earning a reward (even though it is shared) is increased. This can provide you with a steady new supply of Dogecoin.
If you choose to mine solo then you risk waiting a long time to confirm a transaction because there is a lot of competition. It could be weeks or even months before you mine your first block! However, when you do win, the whole reward will be yours. You won’t have to share it or pay any fees.
As a beginner, I would recommend joining a Dogecoin pool. This way you won’t have to wait as long to mine your first block of new currency. You’ll also feel like you’re part of the community and that’s what Dogecoin is all about!
What You Need To Start Mining Dogecoin
Before you start Dogecoin mining, you’ll need a few basics. They are;
  • A PC with either Windows, OS X or Linux operating system.
  • An internet connection
  • A Shiba Inu puppy (just kidding!)
You’ll also need somewhere to keep the Dogecoin you mine. Go to Dogecoin’s homepage and download a wallet.
Note: A wallet is like an email account. It has a public address for sending/receiving Dogecoin and a private key to access them. Your private keys are like your email’s password. Private keys are very important and need to be kept completely secure.
There are two different types; a light wallet and a full wallet. To mine Dogecoin, you’ll need the full wallet. It’s called Dogecoin Core.
Now that you’ve got a wallet, you need some software and hardware.
Dogecoin Mining Hardware
You can mine Dogecoin with;
  • Your PC’s CPU: The CPU in your PC is probably powerful enough to mine Dogecoin. However, it is not recommended. Mining can cause less powerful computers to overheat which causes damage.
  • A GPU: GPUs (or graphics cards) are used to improve computer graphics but they can also be used to mine Dogecoin. There are plenty of GPUs to choose from but here are a few to get you started;SAPPHIRE Pulse Radeon RX 580 ($426.98)Nvidia GeForce GTX ($579.99)ASUS RX Vega 64 ($944.90)
  • A Scrypt ASIC Miner: This is a piece of hardware designed to do one job only. Scrypt ASIC miners are programmed to mine scrypt based currencies like Litecoin and Dogecoin. ASIC miners are very powerful. They are also very expensive, very loud and can get very hot! Here’s a few for you to check out;Innosilicon A2 Terminator ($760)Bitmain Antminer L3 ($1,649)BW L21 Scrypt Miner ($7,700)
Dogecoin Mining Software
Whether you’re mining with an ASIC, a GPU or a CPU, you’ll need some software to go with it. You should try to use the software that works best with the hardware you’re using. Here’s a short list of the best free software for each choice of mining hardware;
  • CPU: If you just want to give mining a quick try, using your computer’s CPU will work fine. The only software I would recommend for mining using a CPU only is CPU miner which you can download for free here.
  • GPU: If you mine with a GPU there are more software options. Here are a few to check out;CudaMiner– Works best with Nvidia products.CGminer– Works with most GPU hardware.EasyMiner– User-friendly, so it’s good for beginners.
  • Scrypt ASIC miner:MultiMiner– Great for mining scrypt based currencies like Litecoin and Dogecoin. It can also be used to mine SHA-256 currencies like Bitcoin.CGminer and EasyMiner can also be used with ASIC miners.
Recommendations
You’re a beginner, so keep it simple! When you first start mining Dogecoin I would recommend using a GPU like the Radeon RX 580 with EasyMiner software. Then I would recommend joining a Dogecoin mining pool. The best pools to join are multi-currency pools like Multipool or AikaPool.
If you want to mine Dogecoin but don’t want to invest in all the tech, there is one other option…
Dogecoin Cloud Mining
Cloud mining is mining without mining! Put simply, you rent computer power from a huge data center for a monthly or yearly fee. The Dogecoin is mined at the center and then your share is sent to you.
All you need to cloud mine Dogecoin is a Dogecoin wallet. Then choose a cloud mining pool to join. Eobot, Nice Hash and Genesis Mining all offer Scrypt-based cloud mining for a monthly fee.
There are pros and cons to Dogecoin cloud mining;
The Pros
  • It’s cheaper than setting up your own mining operation. There’s also no hot, noisy hardware lying around the house!
  • As a beginner, there isn’t a lot of technical stuff to think about.
  • You get a steady supply of new currency every month.
The Cons
  • Cloud mining pools don’t share much information about themselves and how they work. It can be hard to work out if a cloud mining contract is a good value for money.
  • You are only renting computer power. If the price of Dogecoin goes down, you will still have to pay the same amount for something that is worthless.
  • Dogecoin pools have fixed contracts. The world of crypto can change very quickly. You could be stuck with an unprofitable contract for two years!
  • It’s no fun letting someone else do the mining for you!
Now you know about all the different ways to mine Dogecoin we can ask the big question, can you make tons of money mining Dogecoin?
So, Is Dogecoin Mining Profitable?
The short answer is, not really. Dogecoin mining is not going to make you a crypto billionaire overnight. One Dogecoin is worth 0.002777 US Dollars. If you choose to mine Dogecoin solo, it will be difficult to make a profit. You will probably spend more money on electricity and hardware than you will make from Dogecoin mining. Even if you choose a Dogecoin pool or a cloud pool your profits will be small.
However, if you think I am telling you to not mine Dogecoin, then you’re WRONG! Of course, I think you should mine Dogecoin!
But why? Seriously…
Well, you should mine Dogecoin because it’s fun and you want to be a part of the Dogecoin family. Cryptocurrency is going to change the world and you want to be part of that change, right? Mining Dogecoin is a great way to get involved.
Dogecoin is the coin that puts a smile on people’s faces. By mining Dogecoin you’ll be supporting all the good work its community does. You’ll learn about mining from the friendliest gang in crypto. And who knows? In a few years, the Dogecoin you mine now could be worth thousands or even millions! In 2010, Bitcoin was worthless. Think about that!
Only you can choose whether to mine Dogecoin or not. You now know everything you need to know to make your choice. The future is here. So, what are you going to do?

Hello 0xBitcoin Community! I'm excited to share my work with you today.
NOTE: THESE VERSIONS ARE OUTDATED! Get the latest here: https://bitbucket.org/LieutenantTofu/cosmic-v3/downloads/
v3.4 is the thoroughly tested Stable Version. v3.5 is experimental at the time of this writing. Thanks!
COSMiC v3.4 for Windows thread: https://www.reddit.com/0xbitcoin/comments/8ewvo9/miner_cosmic_v34t_cuda_miner_for_windows_64_linux
And for Linux: https://www.reddit.com/0xbitcoin/comments/8g92v4/build_cosmic_v34t_for_linux_with_autostart/
(Post remains for archival purposes: )
This is the first in a series of builds I will be posting here and on the Discord server that incorporate the latest updates to the various forks of the community open-source CUDA miner, plus my own optimizations and improvements (nickname: Hashburner builds). In addition to being as fast as possible, I'm trying to make these as reliable and user-friendly as possible, with quality documentation.
I am posting two archives of V1 today. The first is just the binaries(executables) for Windows X64, Mac OS X and Linux. I have only tested the Windows version- so please let me know your results! The second has the binaries, source code, a handy batch file and all the node modules you (should) need to make any changes you'd like and recompile. Both versions also have a 0xBTC.conf sample file I set up for my GTX1060-3GB as Device #0. Feel free to edit it or remove for the hardcoded intensity of 27. Same format as in Azlehria's builds, see Readme.txt.
Binaries Only (open with 7zip or similar): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1zL-hpiyxP2kwU3wIuQz6SDCPWFar-V76
Development Version (with binaries, source, node-modules, etc): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1R0A3hqIjDUp9J1JQLpetIgdtMHDd_Hmd (See the Readme.txt for details on how to build from source.)

Partial Changelog (See Readme.txt):

Please let me know your results along with your hardware configuration so that I can customize the next builds for as wide a range of hardware as possible! On my Pascal card (GTX1060-3GB w/ +122 MHz Core, -150 MHz VRAM), I am getting ~515 MH/s with this build.
Enjoy and Happy Hashing! - Lt. Tofu a.k.a. Mag517
p.s. How do you like the nickname for our community miner? Also, expect HB V1.1 in the next day or two.

How to get started on GPU mining on Pizza Pool (gpu.pizza) [Nvidia/linux/ClosedSource]

Sunday morining the 0xBitcoin Discord got a surprise from @0xPiZzA...
hi guys. i am 0x778, again! has it gone a long time and you miss me? 8^D= i wait two more weeks since last time, want to check you to see if you are ready for gpu and 0xBITCOIN. today i am ready to release Closed Source GPU Miner for everyone, works for my new Mining Pool name " PiZzA Pool " ! \o/ new pizzaminer is ALPHA software : means speed good but has bugs. Linux only OS. new pool PiZzA Pool also ALPHA but in testing now, available for your to try. credit system is counting. automatic payment, i am building it now. XD lets GO for best! i am not support Help with this software, please figure it out. i believe you can do it. PiZzA Pool going to donate 2% to 0xBITCOIN project / Infernal Toast who will make Open Source Gpu Miner in competition with pizzaminer and Prevail in Triumph. .o/\o/ when you ready, more info : http://gpu.pizza/ :heart: Have Fun, Love 0xBITCOIN 8^D= ~~ 0xPiZzA :heart: 
GPU mining!!!
PiZzA pool - http://gpu.pizza/
Before we start...
THIS SOFTWARE IS CLOSED SOURCE
I DON'T OFFER ANY WARRANTIES ON THIS MINING SOFTWARE
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
Yet the miner works and I've been paid by the pool (71.17318134 0xBTC):
https://etherscan.io/address/0x79c5BE8f4098208006C7940cF72dAE71738b39b6#tokentxns
1. Prepare your mining rig
Download required programs:
http://gpu.pizza/#download
https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop
https://rufus.akeo.ie/
Using this software is risky, but you can minimize the risk by planning. Ideally you want a sanitized GPU mining rig.
This means:
  • No private key!!!
  • No saved passwords!!!
  • No files you are not comfortable with losing!!!
Use this as a basic security audit if you have an existing GPU mining rig.
2. Download and Install Ubuntu
You can Google this.
I believe in you, you will figure it out. :-D
But get an .iso and use Rufus to make a bootable USB.
3. Install Nvidia Drivers
Don't download them from the Nvidia website. Use repositories instead. This guide worked for me: http://www.linuxandubuntu.com/home/how-to-install-latest-nvidia-drivers-in-linux
Make sure you are connected to wifi at this stage. The error message will not clue you into the fact that your internet is not working.
4. Run the pizzaminer software
Details are in the README.TXT. But essentially all you need to do is run the program. Make sure in properties it has permissions to exectute. Also run each miner in their own terminal instance.
http://gpu.pizza/download/pizzaminer-v0.0.1-alpha/README.txt
CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=0 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=1 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=2 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=3 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... 
5. Configure Autostart
Inside the directory where pizza miner is create a file (autostart) that is executable and contains your payment address:
#!/bin/sh xterm -e -hold CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=0 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... & xterm -e -hold CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=1 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... & xterm -e -hold CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=2 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... & xterm -e -hold CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=3 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... & ... 
Then from Start>Startup Applications add the following task:
Name: Autostart pizzaminer Command: autostart (browse for file created above)
7. Optimization
v0.0.3 CPU optimization
Before the CPU was bottle necking the GPU utilization in certain cases. v0.0.3 fixes this and it's stable for me. With multiple cards on a Celeron G39XX you can expect a 50%+ boost in overall hash rate.
Overclocking (EXPERIMENTAL!!!)
This command should allow basic overclocking, monitor free initialization. Honestly haven't had much success in the overclocking department. Let me know if you do!
sudo nvidia-xconfig -enable-all-gpus -cool-bits=28 --allow-empty-initial-configuration 
6. Known Hashrates
GPU MH/s MH/s MH/s
Version v0.0.1 v0.0.2 v0.0.3
GTX 970 (40 MH/s) (55 MH/s) (75 MH/s)
GTX 1050 Ti (40 MH/s) (75 MH/s) (90 MH/s)
GTX 1060 (60-70** MH/s) (100 MH/s) (150 MH/s)
GTX 1070 Ti (90** MH/s) () ()
GTX 1080 Ti (140** MH/s) () (325** MH/s)
**unconfirmed
Please tell me your hashrates to add to this table!!!
If this guide has been helpful please consider donating:

0xBitcoin (0xBTC) nVidia CUDA Miner, Pre-Built for Windows and Instructions. Newbie-friendly!

** PLEASE READ THE README! See the end of this post for more troubleshooting tips! Thanks! **
NOTE: I've retracted build TOFU-RC1.1 because of an issue communicating shares to the pool. I'll put another build together for Windows X64, and any info you will need to run it, once we figure out what the issue is. Thanks for your patience! RC1 does not show a hashrate report, but you can verify your approx. hashrate on the TMP pool's stats page.
** This build brings CUDA mining functionality from Linux to Windows X64 users. I tried to make it as easy to set up as possible. This is still software in-the-works, so please report any problems you might have here or at the Discord so we can figure them out! Thanks! **
Here's my attempt at making the CUDA miner work on Windows, and making it as painless as I can! Hopefully this is fairly "plug and play". :) I also added some functionality. I hope you guys like it! The enclosed README.txt should explain how to run and use it and solutions to some common problems.
Build Mag517-RC1 for Windows X64: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1QWF_S7mfLGDk2YARC1ZZBYkmpqILLr0h
I am going to commit my changes to the GitHub, once I set it up.
Hurrah to the whole OPEN SOURCE 0xBitcoin miner team on the Discord! Including Infernal Toast, Mikers, @0x1d00ffff, developers of code this project is based on, coder of the original CPU miner and 1000x "Kaio-Ken" version... plus everyone else who knows who they are!
Good Luck! May I suggest we join forces and point our miners at the TMP pool for the time being: http://tokenminingpool.com:8586 so that we can get some blocks and give PizzaPool some competition, with lower-fee pools and open-source, community supported miners. Let's take back the game! ;)
Donations [ETH/0xBTC] welcome! Help my broke ass buy groceries. 0xa8b8ea4C083890833f24817b4657888431486444
TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS:

INTENSITY

Is your machine's GUI too slow when mining? Try reducing intensity with the Block and Thread settings (Read on), turn off Hardware Acceleration in Windows and applications like FireFox, Chrome and Discord to make them draw with the CPU more, not the busy GPU.
If you want it buttery-smooth, boot up with your monitor connected to a separate graphics card and mine on the non-display adapter. If your CPU has on-chip graphics, you can probably hook up to your motherboard's video output (not your graphics card's). Make sure the processor or onboard graphics are enabled and set as default in your BIOS/UEFI setup.
THE WINDOW CLOSES IMMEDIATELY
This is a command-line miner, so you must run it in a command prompt / powershell to see any output if it closes prematurely. Most often, the error you're looking at is the next one:

I GET A WEIRD DEPENDENCY ERROR, LOTS OF .JS STUFF

Make sure you have CUDA v9.1 or latest installed. Install the patches that are on the same download page after you install the main package. Make sure the paths have been added to your Environment Variables in the System Control Panel, Advanced Settings. Reboot or at least log out and back in to apply the new paths before running the miner.

WANT TO MINE WITH MORE THAN ONE GPU?

Remove an SLI or Crossfire bridge, if present. Disable SLI/Crossfire. Rename the EXE file to something else. Run both instances and use the nVidia Control Panel (right-click Desktop, nVidia option) to configure which card should run which process. This neat trick was discovered by @DigitalApathy on the Discord server!

KERNEL FAILS TO LAUNCH

Investigate the reported error, if any. This is most often caused by too high Block / Thread settings. It can also mean the GPU is busy, as in the miner did not gracefully close and release the device. Reboot or otherwise reset the card via software.
POOL NOTE: I strongly recommend the use of TokenMiningPool and 0xPool as of 03.10.2018. This is so that we can build up a large enough hashpower to compete with the Pizza Pool (closed-source mining pool with DevFees.) Right now, PizzaPool is getting most of the blocks and the community pools aren't getting a fair shake. Let's join forces on TMP and 0xPool!
Enjoy! - Lt. Tofu

[BUILD] COSMiC v3.4t for Linux (with Auto-Start Multi-GPU Script)

Hello everyone! I'd like to present a Linux build of COSMiC 3.4 (the Community, Open-Source Miner including CUDA) for your consideration and hopefully enjoyment! Uses the same code as the Windows version, available here: https://bitbucket.org/LieutenantTofu/cosmic-v3/src/maste
You can get the build from the Downloads section, or via this link: https://bitbucket.org/LieutenantTofu/cosmic-v3/downloads/cosmic-3.4t-linux.tar.gz)
A couple screenshots of the miner in action:
Included is a more comprehensive, Linux-specific README and example shell scripts to automatically launch the miner on multiple GPUs (big thanks to @0x1d00ffff for his help!) Just edit multigpu.sh to match your setup (cards, intensity).
Thanks for testing and as usual, feel free to provide any feedback or ask any questions either here or on the 0xBitcoin Discord and I or the rest of the super-helpful community will lend a hand.
In the works:
Happy Hashing!

Getting Started

Hello! Welcome to our awesome /Dogecoin community!
Here you can find very useful information about Dogecoin, Cryptocurrency and more!
Let's start from the beginning.
What is cryptocurrency?
Probably you know Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Dogecoin they are cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrency is a blockchain-based digital asset that uses cryptography to secure its transactions.
How to start?
Here is a list of things:
Wallet
Why? You need to store your dogecoins somewhere.
Types of wallets:
Paper wallet
*Instruction: *
Step 0. Follow the security checklist recommend
The first! The first step is to download this website from Github and open the index.html file directly from your computer. It's just too easy to sneak some evil code in the 6000+ lines of javascript to leak your private key, and you don't want to see your fund stolen. Code version makes make it much easier to cross-check what actuallrunruns. For extra security, unplug your Internet access while generating your wallet.
Step 1. Generate new address
Choose your currency and click on the "Generate new address" button.
Step 2. Print the Paper Wallet
Click the Paper Wallet tab and print the high-quality quality setting. Never save the page as a PDF file to print it later since a file is more likely to be hacked than a piece of paper.
Step 3. Fold the Paper Wallet
Fold your new Paper wallet following the lines. You can insert one side inside the other to lock the wallet.
Step 4. Share your public address
Use your public address to receive money from other crypto-currency users. You can share your public address as much as you want.
Step 5. Keep your private key secret
The private key is literally the keys to your coins, if someone was to obtain it, they could withdraw the funds currently in the wallet, and any funds that might be deposited in that wallet.

Mining
What do you need?
Ideally – cheap electricity and a bunch of graphics cards.
However, you can start mining Dogecoins even using a single PC. You can also mine without using a graphics card, although the progress will be slower. Mining for coins shouldn’t affect the performance of your computer on the default settings since it will only use computing or graphics power when the system is idle.
Mining for coins on a laptop is usually not worth it since it’s not powered on 24/7, the CPU/GPU power is lower, and there is a greater chance of stressing out the chips on the laptop since they’re usually packed into a tighter space, and consequently at more risk of overheating. But if you just want to mine a little bit to get a few coins to play around with, it can do the job.
How to start? Download CUDA miner and fill info inside the window.

New to r/Tokenmining? click here for more in-depth info!

What is EIP:918?

EIP:918 is an Ethereum Improvement Proposal for standardizing mineable token distribution using Proof of Work.
The primary driver behind the standard is to address the very broken ICO model that currently plagues the Ethereum network. Token distribution via the ICO model and it’s derivatives has always been susceptible to illicit behavior by bad actors. New token projects are centralized by nature because a single entity must handle and control all of the initial coins and all of the the raised ICO money. By distributing tokens via an alternative ‘Initial Mining Offering’ (or IMO), the ownership of the token contract no longer belongs with the deployer at all and the deployer is ‘just another user.’ As a result, investor risk exposure utilizing a mined token distribution model is significantly diminished. This standard is intended to be standalone, allowing maximum interoperability with ERC20, ERC721, and future token standards.
The most effective economic side effect of Satoshi Nakamoto’s desire to secure the original Bitcoin network with Proof of Work hash mining was tethering the coin to real computing power, thereby removing centralized actors. Transitioning the responsibility of work back onto individual miners, government organizations have no jurisdiction over the operation of a pure mined token economy. Oversight is removed from an equation whereby miners are providing economic effort in direct exchange of a cryptographic commodity. This facilitates decentralized distribution and establishes all involved parties as stakeholders. The ERC918 standard allows projects to be funded through decentralized computing power instead of centralized, direct-fiat conversion.
The Ethereum blockchain in its current state exists as a thriving ecosystem which allows any individual to store immutable records in a permission-less, invulnerable and transparent manner. Recently, there have been proposals to mitigate some initial ICO investment risks through the introduction of the DAICO model that relies on timed and automated value transfers via the smart contract tapping mechanism. However, this does not align a token smart contract as a non-security and still has the potential to put investors at risk if not implemented carefully, relying on centralized actors to be fair and community intended. Allowing users of the network direct access to tokens by performing computations as a proof of work supplies allows any smart contract to distribute a token in a safe and controlled manner similar to the release of a commodity.
As of 2017, all Ethereum token distribution methods were flawed and susceptible to Sybil attacks. A Sybil attack is a form of computer security attack where one person pretends to be many people with multiple computer accounts in order to manipulate a system in a malicious way. ICOs and airdrops are highly susceptible to these type of attacks so there is no way to verify that all ERC20 tokens distributed by the deployer were doled out fairly or unfairly. Proof of Work distribution is resistant to Sybil attacks. This means that ERC918 tokens are among the first trustless Ethereum tokens in the world. The distribution of ERC918 tokens is fair because they are allotted via an open, decentralized mathematical algorithm (that anyone can view on the mainnet blockchain) and not a centralized human monarchy.
ERC918’s first incarnation (and inspiration) was the 0xBitcoin project that launched in early 2018. Since then, several projects have realized the standard in innovative and creative ways. Catether (0xCATE) erupted early and additionally mints payback tokens during transfer operations to offset gas costs. 0xGold and 0xLitecoin each implement the first on-chain merge-mining with 0xBitcoin and the Mineable Gem project extends the standard onto a non-fungible collectible artifacts, whereby each gem has a unique mining difficulty. The Mineable project is a newer initiative that provides users with the ability to create mineable ERC20 tokens on-chain without writing a line of code and includes a virtualized hashing artifact market that allows miners to purchase on-chain vGPUs to improve mining difficulty and rewards. (written by jlogelin) ​

MINING IN A NUTSHELL

0xBitcoin is a Smart Contract on the Ethereum network, and the concept of Token Mining is patterned after Bitcoin's distribution. Rather than solving 'blocks', work is issued by the contract, which also maintains a Difficulty which goes up or down depending on how often a Reward is issued. Miners can put their hardware to work to claim these rewards, in concert with specialized software, working either by themselves or together as a Pool. The total lifetime supply of 0xBitcoin is 21,000,000 tokens and rewards will repeatedly halve over time.
The 0xBitcoin contract was deployed by Infernal_Toast at Ethereum address: 0xb6ed7644c69416d67b522e20bc294a9a9b405b31
0xBitcoin's smart contract, running on the Ethereum network, maintains a changing "Challenge" (that is generated from the previous Ethereum block hash) and an adjusting Difficulty Target. Like traditional mining, the miners use the SoliditySHA3 algorithm to solve for a Nonce value that, when hashed alongside the current Challenge and their Minting Ethereum Address, is less-than-or-equal-to the current Difficulty Target. Once a miner finds a solution that satisfies the requirements, they can submit it into the contract (calling the Mint() function). This is most often done through a mining pool. The Ethereum address that submits a valid solution first is sent the 50 0xBTC Reward.
(In the case of Pools, valid solutions that do not satisfy the full difficulty specified by the 0xBitcoin contract, but that DO satisfy the Pool's specified Minimum Share Difficulty, get a 'share'. When one of the Miners on that Pool finds a "Full" solution, the number of shares each miner's address has submitted is used to calculate how much of the 50 0xBTC reward they will get. After a Reward is issued, the Challenge changes.
A Retarget happens every 1024 rewards. In short, the Contract tries to target an Average Reward Time of about 60 times the Ethereum block time. So (at the time of this writing):
~13.9 seconds \* 60 = 13.9 minutes
If the average Reward Time is longer than that, the difficulty will decrease. If it's shorter, it will increase. How much longer or shorter it was affects the magnitude with which the difficulty will rise/drop, to a maximum of 50%. * Click Here to visit the stats page~ (https://0x1d00ffff.github.io/0xBTC-Stats) to see recent stats and block times, feel free to ask questions about it if you need help understanding it.

MINING HARDWARE

Presently, 0xBitcoin and "Alt Tokens" can be mined on GPUs, CPUs, IGPs (on-CPU graphics) and certain FPGAs. The most recommended hardware is nVidia graphics cards for their efficiency, ubiquity and relatively low cost. As general rules, the more cores and the higher core frequency (clock) you can get, the more Tokens you will earn!
Mining on nVidia cards:
Mining on AMD cards:
Mining on IGPs (e.g. AMD Radeon and Intel HD Graphics):

Linux build guide coming next (probably tonight). And a simpler guide on how to use the pre-built version. Enjoy, and I appreciate/welcome any feedback! Thanks!
My Experiences Building 0xBitcoin GPU miner on Windows 10 x64. Tutorial Version 1 (pre-alpha status, lol)
(by: Lt.Tofu [Mag517] on the 0xBitcoin discord. )
You will no doubt have to google a few things, but as I revise this tutorial that number should decrease. Let me know how it can be made more helpful. Note: Your Mileage can, and probably will, Vary!
First you'll have to install Git and Node.js (version 8.something). Let me know if you can't find it. You also need to install CUDA. The latest version seems to be fine. Also get any updates that are listed with the main installer package. Make sure you get drivers that play nice with your GPU for mining (google around to find experiences of other miners with your hardware.) Once you install these programs, YOU MUST LOG OUT AND BACK IN to update your PATHs! You're best off restarting after installing CUDA anyway.
WARNING: CUDA comes with a graphics driver! If you don't want it replacing your own, uncheck it! Also, DON'T install GeForce Experience, and if you have it, I advise uninstalling it. It might mess with your drivers and can prevent you from setting certain parameters in the nV control panel you might need.
Get the latest master from: https://github.com/0xbitcoin/0xbitcoin-gpuminer or clone it (google that) to your disk. Extract it somewhere handy, I'll put it in c:\development\0xbitcoin-gpuminer-master Open an Admin PowerShell (windows key + X, then press A in the menu that appears. You can also select File Menu from the upper left from within your build dir and choose Powershell as Admin.) Navigate to your build directory.
cd ../../
cd Development
cd 0xbitcoin-gpuminer-master
Now you want to run yarn to get the dependencies for the build. But first you need yarn. Do these.
npm install yarn
(consider doing npm install -g yarn to install it globally for other build dirs.)
yarn
Now yarn should run and install python and some other goodies. You might also need to do:
npm install windows-build-tools
Now you will need to set the "magic numbers" to match your GPU.
In your favorite text editor, open c:\development\0xbitcoin-gpuminer-master\cpp\hybridminer\cuda_sha3.cu At the very top you should see two #define directives. Change the numeric value in these to match your GPU. Here is mine as an example. I have a GTX960, which has 1024 CUDA cores, so I set 32 for both of these. Which conveniently multiplies out to 1024. I was able to find some starter values by running another miner I had lying around, XMR-STAK, and looking at the nvidia.txt it generates with # of threads, blocks. It was giving 24 and 28 and I adjusted to 32 and 32. I continue to play with these numbers to see if I can eke out extra performance or lower the intensity to make Windows more responsive while mining.
EDIT: Better performance on the GTX960 achieved with settings: 128 block size, 36 threads. EDIT2: Maxwell 2nd-Gen GPUs like this can be sped up further by enabling Optimize for Compute in the nV control panel. Might report "access denied" if you have GeForce Experience installed- all the more reason to remove it or not install it. You might also turn "DSR Factors" to 2.00x and see if it helps your mining speed.
CUDA and Drivers all installed? Good! Now check your paths. Start Menu, type Environment until you see Environment Variables come up. You can also go to the old System control panel, advanced settings to do this. Verify that there's a CUDA_PATH and a CUDA_PATH_9.1 pointing to a directory like this one (check your own:)
C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v9.1
If you get an error later on about nvcc.exe not being found, or other CUDA dependency-sounding errors, try defining $(CUDA_PATH) the exact same way. Remember to log out/in again or reboot to apply these new paths.
Ready for the moment of truth. Execute these commands in order in c:\development\0xbitcoin-gpuminer-master.
(EDIT: Want a shortcut? node-gyp clean and then npm install instead to automate the process!) (Another option: try node-gyp run build).
node-gyp clean
node-gyp configure
node-gyp build
node-gyp install
If all were successful, then proceed, otherwise we need to fix something. As people report errors I will add solutions *here.
node index.js
This SHOULD run the program in your Power Shell. You can do this in a regular, non-elevated one, as Admin should not be necessary after you installed those dependencies earlier. This was the case for me, but run as Admin if you encounter a problem so that you can check this off the list of potential culprits.
Once in the miner, enter these commands.
account select 0xthisisyouraddress You should be asked to enter the keystore's password. If you haven't set up an account yet, do 'account new' instead and follow the steps. Then come back and use the above command in the future. On additional computers you wish to mine on, you should in theory only need to enter the address, not transfer the keystore to each one.
pool select http://tokenminingpool.com:8586/
alternatively:
pool select http://0xpool.io:8586/
pool mine cuda
If this worked, you should be mining. Look for solutions and check the Statistics page on your chosen mining pool.
... More to come ...

Can I use an old GPU (nVidia 9800GT) for mining?

I've been mining the last few days using CPU. I'm getting around 25-30Khs. (linux VM on 2017 Macbook Pro, limited to 3-4 cores) According to the bitcoin calculation charts, my old 9800 should be able to top that. (But thats using SHA256.) I tried ccminer, and cgminer, but no success so far. (Not finding CUDA or OpenCL compatible hardware.) . I'm just not sure if i'm missing something, or theres another miner i can use or not. (The 9800 is in a Windows machine.)
I have a feeling i'm out of luck, but I figured I'd ask.
Thanks!

I bought 8 290Xs. What now?

I ponded whether or not to mine bitcoin, then the ASICs were announced. Luckily, I didn't preorder Butterfly Labs, but that whole scenario made me a skeptic. I pondered whether or not to buy a Bitcoin ASIC (the first month the terraminer was on Preorder), and I let that slip by. I pondered whether or not to mine Litecoin, and that slip by. I'm still very skeptical about Litecoin ASIC shipping times so in the meantime, I decided I will buy one when they are available to ship, not for preorder. Till then, I decided to force myself into purchasing high performing cards and mining. I think about things WAY too much and often end up convincing myself not to do them. There's no going back, I'm tired of looking into the water and trying to see if it's warm or not— debating whether I should dip my feet in. I've jumped in 8 graphics cards deep. I've been looking at building guides for months, but after mark-ups and outdated builds, I'm reaching out to see what builds would be good for mining with these 8 cards. Any links or advice would be very much appreciated.
SIDE NOTE: I have two GTX 690s I purchased for my incredibly powerful, yet amazingly irritating hackintosh, which I am now incredible frustrated and eventually will be turning in for a Mac Pro. I've been getting about 1150 KH/s with the two cards running CudaMiner on OS X or 530~560KHs Vert— Do you think it's worth it to keep the cards in my new build? Or sell them on eBay?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=291126412466
TL;DR
part 1: Bought 2 XFX/6 Sapphire 290Xs for $2400, $300 each, and I would like to know what is the most efficient, cheapest mining rig to build around it. I have looked at many guides (not the software quite yet), I am open to using Linux as I hear that is the best and would preferably like to be able to control the units remotely.
part 2: I also have access to two GTX 690s hashing at 1150kh/s scrypt, 530~560KHs scrypt-N— is it worth running these if I have access to free electricity? Or should I sell them on ebay?
