For those with inexpensive power, this is not an issue. For those with expensive power, it can be the largest recurring cost for Zcash mining. Using our power consumption and hash rate data, here is what profit per day looks like with $0.10/ kWh, $0.20/ kWh and $0.40/ kWh power:
The following configuration of mining machines are suitable for virtual currency based on Equihash Algorithm: Zcash(ZEC), Zencash(ZEN), Bitcoin Gold(BTG), Komodo(KMD). Click on the name or login to minethecoin.com to view the current earnings. The mining machines earnings unit is Sol/s based on Equihash Algorithm.
I think I’m ready to start building a rig operating system from a stock OS. I’ll be using lubuntu (my pers fav). MIning rigs make the best home computers I have my smallest rig ( 5 x 1070 Founder edition) in my living room. I hope I get everything running smoothly so I can go ham on packages and running nodes.
Go in to your extracted Zcash file and find the ‘start.sh’ file. If it doesn’t have one make one. Select it, right click on it and click ‘Edit’. Once you are here you will need to delete the contents in it and paste this with your addresses and press save.

Dear NiceHash users! As you might have noticed our Twitter account has been suspended for a few days. In collaboration with Twitter, we have now resolved the issue and our Twitter account is… Read more
As you can see, pricing has some fairly wild swings. As another example, this article was written Saturday, 20 May 2017 when the price was $104 USD to 1 ZEC. On Sunday 21 May 2017 the price hit $123. At the time of this publication (9AM Pacific 22 May 2017) 1 ZEC is now around $248. Prices fluctuate, a lot.
Oks thanks so its a high investment to make good money thats the way I see it… But what I did not understand is you said: multiply the outputs by 6… …Then multiply the outputs by 6… Why by 6? …. and If i did the math correctly, with the link you provided me with, well the total output income will be $180k an Year (Sure depending on the UNSTABLE MARKET of course) anyhow even getting around $10K it gets back the investment and some extra cash don’t you think? so my question is… is this real? and if so….… Read more »
Experimentation with various GPU selections in the calculator will reveal a card the best price-to-performance-to-power consumption combination (expressed as MH/s per currency unit). Keep in mind that AMD cards outperform Nvidia cards for Ethereum mining purposes on the EthashAlgo, but AMD doesn’t beat Nvidia when it comes to the Equihash algorithm using the EWBF Miner.
Routinely during its operation the miner will also display useful information such as the GPU temperature(s), sol/s per card and total sol/s. The part highlighted in a table fashion is what was enabled by using the –pec flag above and displays a rough efficiency reading you can later use to help fine tune your settings.
Equihash est un algorithme de hash spécifique qui a été créé par les créateurs de Zcash. Une de ses particularités est que cet algorithme demande une très grosse quantité de mémoire vive (RAM) et une grosse bande passante à cette mémoire pour que le mining soit profitable. Ainsi la production d’ASIC est à ce jour impossible et seules les cartes graphiques peuvent réellement le miner. (Il est également possible de miner equihash avec son CPU mais cela n’est vraiment pas rentable et il y a plus de perte en énergie que de gains.)
