I’ve created an AMI for AWS that can be used to mine with CUDA GPU. Just running it on g2.xlarge servers.
Its all pre-compiled and ready to run, no Linux knowledge needed to start it. It uses nicehash ( GitHub - nicehash/nheqminer: Equihash miner for NiceHash ) for mining so all ready to go for pool mining.
Can easily be used with Spot-Instances that are pretty cheap: Amazon EC2 Spot Instances Pricing
how many solve and is that worths 2.5 usd for 1 day _
(20 words etc etc)
getting at the moment around 8 Sols/s
I guess more optimization is possible.
Waiting for resolving this issue: Higher CPU than Intel i7 6700 K but still get on 6-7 sol/s · Issue #115 · nicehash/nheqminer · GitHub
Would be interesting to run on g2.8xlarge with more RAM
Would need some funds to do more testing
Update starting 1 x nheqminer_cuda_tromp and 1 x nheqminer_cpu gives 14-20 H/s
its a starting point for experimenting
this is WAY too late to experiment with.
I’ve used this method running 100 computers(64 cpus) getting about 100 hashes/sec from each.
Mined and sold while the price was over 2.0-2.5 btc.
right now - not touching it.
that might be true, mining at the moment with CPU on 3 linux machines and having trouble to mine faster than the price is falling was still fun and worthwhile learning more about AWS
there is much more interest in z.cash than I had expected. I’m surprised to see so many people using it regardless the fact that there is only an official linux client.
AWS EC2 is marketing bulls.it. Their so called compute instances (c4.large, c4.xlarge) work slower than my 4y old laptop, don’t know why, HVM virtualization overhead or something else…
@individual-it hey shre the name of the AMI , I will like to pook at it
WAY slower clock speeds, vCPU
please send me your AWS Account Number and I will publish it for you
Anyway I could get a copy of it?
check for the ami with the ID ami-dd280fca
If you cannot find it please tell me your amazon user and I can give specific permissions for you
I wasn’t able to find it, my account ID is 503929816351
you still running it?
any luck on ROI?
I was never able to see where you uploaded it
sorry I was busy. First I made it public don’t know why you cold not find it. Now I gave permission for account ID is 503929816351
Please try it
I Am going to try in the am
