Nicehash Miner or str4d?


#1

Which is more powerful? I know Nicehash currently taking 3% additional fee, but is it worth it?


#2

Just download the new official RC2, tromp solvers were implemented by Samath in a pull request.

You can solo and pool mine with it.


#3

To solo mine do you just add these line to the config file

testnet=1
addnode=betatestnet.z.cash
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
equihashsolver=tromp
gen=1
genproclimit=-1


#4

Correct

and for pool mining you run

~/zcash/./src/zcashd -daemon -stratum=poolstratum -user=username.worker -password=yourpass -debug -printtoconsole

check the pools guide to be 100% sure


#5

@trolloniex

right so these are settings for the cpu miner built in the node and wallet. something similar (built in) should be available for GPU mining ?

Also miner only builds such as Nicehash, Zogminer and others... think i get it! nice name btw


#6

I don't think we will have a built in GPU miner for launch, but you never know.


#7

I'm building Zogminer but not sure if I need all this

$ sudo apt-get install \
build-essential pkg-config libc6-dev m4 g++-multilib \
autoconf libtool ncurses-dev unzip git python \
zlib1g-dev wget bsdmainutils automake opencl-headers \
mesa-common-dev

think the first part was already installed as dependency for the zcashd so just

sudo apt-get install \
zlib1g-dev wget bsdmainutils automake opencl-headers \
mesa-common-dev

should do it but I have no idea what all that is


#8

when i run the above command am i only solving with one core/thread?
testnet=1
addnode=betatestnet.z.cash
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
equihashsolver=tromp
gen=1
genproclimit=-1
