Hi Zcash forum members:
Bminer team got permission from Zcash forum moderators for posting this thread.
Based on Zcash foundation’s study, Biryukov and Feher concluded, “In the short period of time of this study (2 weeks) we could put an upper bound on the ASIC/FPGA potential presence in Equihash mining ecosystem as of end of May 2018 at 20 – 30% of total mining operations,” based on GPU miner’s dev-fee estimates and the fraction of above 8Ksol miners in the Equihash mining landscape. Dev fees are typically 2% voluntary fees that many of the GPU miners pay to the developers of the most optimized GPU mining software.
70%+'s equihash hashrate still come from GPUs and most of the equihash community users still mining with GPU mining software such as Bminer.
Bminer is committed to supporting GPU mining, if you got any reliable news about whether all equihash communities’ reaches consensus, you can leave me a message here or separately.
Bminer is a highly optimized cryptocurrency miner that runs on modern NVIDIA GPUs (Maxwell and Pascal, i.e. GPUs that have compute capability 5.0 or above).
Bminer supports mining Equihash-based coins (e.g., Zcash) with 2% of devfee。
Bminer supports mining Zhash (Equihash with parameter set 144,5) based coins (e.g. BitcoinGold) with 2% of devfee.
Bminer supports mining Ethash-based coins (e.g., Ethereum) with 0.65% of devfee.
Bminer also supports dual mining mode - mining Ethash-based coins (e.g. Ethereum) and Blake14r-based coins (e.g. Decred) / Blake2s-based coins (e.g. Verge) at the same time. Devfee for the dual mining mode is 1.3%, and the second coin (e.g. Decred/Verge) is mined without devfee.
