The next step is to download the EWBF Miner. Only download miners from the official threads in BitcoinTalk. If you scroll down, you’ll see a couple of different download options. We’re going to use the Mega download link.
Experimentation with various GPU selections in the calculator will reveal a card with 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.

Blockchain the public record of all bitcoin transactions. The blockchain may be viewed by anyone and can be used to determine how many bitcoins were attached to any one address at a given time. One place to be able to easily view this information is blockchain.info
For this reason, miners started to work in groups, which are called pools. A pool of miners unites the calculation power of a workforce of small miners in order to obtain a significant mining power (aka hash rate), thus increasing the chance of solving a puzzle and getting the reward for it. Each miner in the pool, gets a “share” of the reward, according to the amount of power he contributed to the pool.
We also recorded power consumption during our testing both before mining, then after adding the GPU and having it mine for 60-72 hours. Here is what an average power consumption, per card, was for the final 12 hours of our observation period when the cards were thoroughly heat soaked:
Click on “workers” and choose one of the jobs (Account’s default jobs) according to your card. Run the file you have created (mine.bat). Make sure that there are no errors and that a message approving your worker has been received. If you did not get this message, it means you did something wrong. After the program starts running you will see that the worker (called the miner) is added to the “workers” screen. On the site, click “Dashboard” to see data about the mining (it will take some time until you see something; it is updated according to the work that the mining machine does).
You will now need to choose a pool in which to mine at. Most pools now use your wallet address as an account, with payments sent automatically to your wallet address once you reach the pool’s payment threshold. There are still some exceptions to this, such as the Suprnova pool which still requires you to register an separate account and input your wallet address separately.
Unfortunately it’s currently written specifically for linux and uses direct OperatingSystem calls to be as fast as possible, to have very low cpu usage and to consume energy as little as possible. However if people are interested in a Windows version I’ll port it. First we have to check how it performs on something faster then a 750ti However my test are very promising.
I’ve a question, I have a 700W Power supply(non modular) , and currently a gtx 1080 and one gtx 1060 3GB. So the miner shows that I’m using about 200W for this gtx, if I connect one more gtx 1060 3GB and I start the miner, it shows errors like it hasn’t enought power, and the last gpu stops running but the fan go 100%.
To minimize the disruptions to your mining and settings, you may also want to disable Windows Updates. If you feel more secure leaving updates on, you can do so, but keep in mind there are frequent updates that will reboot your system and stop your mining.
Linux users would probably want to go and try the latest version of the Silentarmy miner that also brought support for Nvidia GPUs and is apparently providing similar performance as the NiceHash release for Windows. Also the Silentarmy miner is doing pretty well on AMD hardware, so do try it as well if you have such mining rigs and are running them on Linux.
It does mine but there is no way to get paid and you need to put your wallet address in some other website,the app crashes and suddenly stops constantly, it needs an update to fix all those software errors,is really bad design it should pay immediately after is done hashing and it should have a place to put your wallet so it sends the coins to the wallet directly and have no issues, very hard to get support, it seems to be working and hashing but just can’t get it to pay or no support, i don’t recommend it seems like a gimmicky lie
TBMINER has no duty to provide the service of installing and debugging door to door. The accessories are provided by TBMINER, and the installing and debugging are responsible by the customers themselves after buying. The install video could get from our website, please click to view.
Similar to the Claymore miner (which does not currently support Zcash mining under Windows), the EWBF miner contains a 2% developer fee which can be turned off in the batch file. It is noted in the thread that disabling the fee will slightly reduce hashing power, similar to that same behavior with Claymore’s miner.
I have a Trojan.GenericKD.5331716 in any download for the nheqminer for windows. Does not matter what source I go to. Best be aware. If someone has a source that does not contain it, would be happy to receive.
Interesting blog. I was about to post a similair post. Buy and hold for the upcoming 3 years and the blockchain market will find it’s way. I was researching a way to do better investment analysis on the current cryptos. I was wondering if anyone of you uses: https://www.coincheckup.com Since I use this site I make so much less basic investment mistakes.
Now me personally I am a little superstittious when it comes to running things and I for some reason like to run my mining programs a super user. This will be a little redundant, but this is just how I do it.
Cool story, but you do know, you can direct that miner which i linked to any pool you want to have it mine entirely foryourself??? nheqminer.exe -l eu1-zcash.flypool.org:3333 -u wallet.worker -t threadcountnumber.
Dear NiceHash users! 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
Broke the bank to get this card as an open box sale for about 50bux off regular price and it performs exactly as advertised with ethminer (30mh/s). I didn’t try a zcash miner as I immediately switched to running NiceHash with the cool interface. Running NH for 8 days off and on will net me an average of $6/hour. It does double duty at nights running PUBG on ULTRA settings.
Equihash is memory-hard but also fast to verify. Proof of Work is established by requiring “… two parameters: N (width in bits) and K (length), which determine the complexity of the underlying problem …”. The complexity of the underlying problem directly influences the memory and time required for the computation. If you want a run-through of the algorithm itself, take a look at this informative post on the Zcash forum.
The first question everyone asks once they have decided to try Zcash mining is “What hardware is best to mine with?” This question is not easily answered because there are many improvements in hardware and software happening on almost a weekly basis. To start, mining falls into one of two general categories
Private Key This is the part of data that you keep secret in your Bitcoin wallet. Every Bitcoin address has a unique private key attached. Possession of this key is what allows you to maintain control of those bitcoins. If someone else is able to obtain your key, they also have control of your bitcoins.
