Once you have your batch file configured with your settings, it is time to test it out. Save and close the text editor and then double click on the batch file to run the program. If everything is running correctly you should get a screen similar to the one shown below:
Here you can find the submissions to the challenge, along with link to the code hosted on GitHub. Not all submissions received are listed here. If a submission does not appear to include any Equihash code, then it is not published here and was not considered for judgment unless there was code added before the deadline. Submissions are listed in no particular order.
You can click the Download button for the current driver or choose Download Previous Drivers & Software on the right-hand side. This will allow you to choose an older version that will be a great driver for mining based on your card:
The following explanation is about how to mine Zcash (very profitable currently at the moment as of writing this article) in a pool called miningpoolhub. It is possible to mine many other coins through this pool, but you need to download other mining software to do so.

The average mining rate of the system is 200Mh/s, providing an opportunity for an excellent return at current ETH values, if ETH continues to climb as Bitcoin has it will produce a return many times over.
Good morning from Q City, so i have a noobynoob question. am very beginner and now I mining on 3 PC. Two of them mine ethereum using 470×2 and 480×2 – I`m using dwarfpool and Claymore`s Dual miner and everything is okay when i check my wallet raits the balance is growing like beautiful garden with hundreds of mexicans working on it, !!BUT!! on my third PC I am using single msi gtx1080 gaming X to mine some zec using dwarfpool and nheqminer5c it working on 400 sol/s but my balanace is still 0.0000 after 10 hours of mine. So what the problem, or my mistake>>??? Im using wallet creating on HitBTC, is it okay>>>>?? HELP PLZ!!
Cryptocurrency markets are volatile and are rife with manipulation. Zcash is a relatively medium sized cryptocurrency currently valued at around $150M USD (at $104 USD per ZEC.) As points of comparison, Monero’s market cap is about $500M at the time of this writing and larger players like Ethereum and Bitcoin are well over $10B USD each. With such a small market cap, Zcash is particularly susceptible to market fluctuations.
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.
Editor’s Note: We ran this analysis on 20 May 2017 when Zcash’s coin ZEC was $104 USD to 1 ZEC. By the early morning Pacific time of 22 May 2017 that had hit $124. As this is about to publish it is currently at $248 USD to 1 ZEC. These markets fluctuate greatly.
In this post I’ll break down the various steps required to mine the eagerly anticipated Zcash which is due to be released on the 28/10/16. In advance of the launch day we can prepare our machines to be ready right from the very start.
It is important to know, that mining on a personal computer is supposed to be done for the purpose of learning. In order to generate profit and achieve massive cooling as well, it is better to build or purchase dedicated mining machines.
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.
Besides the ability to rent and lease hashrate for the new Equihash mining algorithm being used by Zcash (ZEC) NiceHash is also offering what they call Fast Zcash Cloud Mining Contracts. These are 24 hour mining contracts, but with a large amount of hashrate that you are getting for this short period of time. This is an interesting alternative to long term cloud mining contracts, but probably not the best one for the moment while we are still in the slow start of mining for Zcash. Still a nice alternative to have to long term contracts as well as to traditional renting of hashrate where the price may vary and here you have a fixed price for the day.
You can mine it to an exchange or to hardware wallet like Ledger Nano S. amd Trezor. In this guide, we have mentioned all about the setting process of Nvidia EWBF Miner. You should know how to set and use it up. Mining process can be very profitable for you if you have any AMD card.
Replace “stratum.zcash.nicehash.com:3357” with your pool’s server. and replace “t1RjQjDbPQ9Syp97DHFyzvgZhcjgLTMwhaq” with your zcash wallet address. Optionally, replace “YourWorkerName”. If you want, you can also replace “x” with your password.
Next, you will have to ensure you have the correct virtual memory enabled (minimum 16GB). To do this, search for system in the start menu. Open system and on the left hand side click ‘Advanced System Settings.’ Go under the advanced tab, under performance settings, and advanced again. Then click ‘Change’ under virtual memory. Uncheck the box that states to ‘Automatically manage paging file size for all drives’ and then input a custom size of 16384 (or whatever is the maximum allowable value up to 16GB) into the Initial and Maximum size fields. This will prevent you from having any errors with virtual memory.
Zcash is an open source cryptocurrency that focuses on the privacy element. This cryptocurrency is mineable utilizing the CPU, and/or GPU. It is a popular currency to mine with nVidia GPU’s as the algorithm hashes better on these GPU’s vs. their AMD competitors. The GTX series is the most popular for mining Zcash.
CRITICAL BUG in version 3a and 3b, the servers are always redirected to the EU, although the script to hk .. and version 3 is very unstable, often reporting zero (0) sol .. so, UPGRADE immediately to version 4
I think the Nvidia bottle neck applies to anything you mine on Windows. It has to do with the recent Nvidia drivers. That’s why I suggest ubuntu. Now I’m not for sure on Windows 7 because I only use Windows 10 and Ubuntu. If you find something out let me know!
I have put together a few videos that you may find helpful below. If your looking for a good written step-by-step tutorial I recommend this one. Building a good GPU rig will also give you the ability to mine other crypto-currencies like Ethereum.
I was skeptical so I have tested myself. This miner is faster than dstm on my rigs by ~2%. The difference is small though. Here is the post I have in bitcointalk, with all screenshots and all my mining logs.
Please keep this in mind before you assume that this is profitable and buy hardware. If you were mining in December 2016 assuming a $90-100 price, by January 2017 to early March 2017 your Zcash stash was worth 1/2 to 1/3rd.
Freedom Miner is a Zcash Miner beast and is defaulted to mine ZEC out of the box, however changing currencies is a breeze before or after you receive the rig. During purchase simply provide us with your wallet addresses for the coins you wish to mine and we’ll send your rig pre-configured. Don’t have wallet addresses yet? No problem, we can ship your rig with our system defaults.Freedom Miner comes with a standard 3-prong US style power cord, but other standard power supply cables are compatible as well.
The good news is that getting started with Zcash mining is very simple. You don’t need to download the full Zcash blockchain or manage clunky command-line miners with manual instructions; you can mine directly to an exchange or to a hardware wallet such as Trezor or Ledger Nano S. Of course, you should always do your due diligence to ensure your coins will be properly supported before sending them anywhere.
The decentralization is done using the blockchain technology. Blockchain, is a type of a ledger that confirms transactions and lives in a distributed-fashion in the cloud. In other words, a group of computers around the world holds copies of the order books and for any given change in it, all the copies are updated. When a majority of the computers authorize a transaction, the money is securely transferred and added to the next block which will be written.
You need to take in to consideration the system which requires another 100w. 1080 with 80 percent power and 2 1060 also at 80 percent power should be fine. If it doesn’t work try to reduce power further to 75 percent. I have my 1080s set to 70 percent power.
Covering these steps more in detail, to get started mining Zcash with EWBF you will need a Windows based PC (or mining rig) and a late generation Nvidia GPU, preferably a GTX10xx series such as the GTX 1080 that I will be using.
Now with all that said, it also does not mean that a mining program cannot contain a virus, or that it isn’t a virus itself, so don’t just blindly trust it either. It is just that there is a valid reason for a high rate of false positives when it comes to such software. Just as a general rule, I would not load any mining software on a machine that contains a cryptocurrency wallet, or one that you do any type of financial work on. It is best to play it safe and keep your mining rigs separate from your important information, so a separate machine is best that is dedicated to mining if possible.
Digital currencies are mine to a transparent address but it can be spent to shielded address or Z-address. This currency should be swept out of the transparent address in one transaction without any changes. You should use the Z-sendmany command to send currencies from a transparent address to shielded address. You need 4GB RAM for this process.
I hope you’ve found this guide useful! In the video, I quickly cover overclocking and turning down your power consumption via MSI Afterburner, so make sure to watch it as well. If you run into any issues or have any questions, comment here in the blog or in the video comments, and I’ll try to help as much as I can.
