I'd like to get started with namecoin how can I set this up on my windows PC? Edit: Morning update, Thanks for everyone's help on this biosupdate's post is extremely helpful. In some ways I think this could be slightly better than bitcoin, since it actually has a use behind the coins rather than just a medium of exchange, but we'll see.
I’ll go where the better returns are. I’ve mined big pools, small pools, Vertcoin one click, WinMiner, Cuba, ccminer, cpuminer, guiminer, ethminer and most of them suck. Either the set up is trash and there’s no info on what is needed for it to run, or the UI is atrocious. NiceHash was simple- point and shoot. On top of that, it yielded good returns. WinMiner so far is the closest thing. CPU pointed at SUMO and GPUs pointed at VTC, it’s pulling roughly $5 a day. I also like that I can cash out in BTC, PayPal, or Vertcoin. Slush pool yielded like, 0.01 after 24 hours Noobpool yielded 0.00 Give-me-coins VTC yielded 0.02 after like, 30 hours. Vertcoin one click might be okay if your pool doesn’t suck, but almost all the pools I found, did in fact suck. Oh, I also briefly mined LBRY and got some very high hash rates and the currency started stacking up, but the currency is very very cheap, so the number of coins you get skyrockets, but it still equates to < $1 So, as of now, WinMiner is the only option that doesn’t suck. GPU: GeForce 1070 ti CPU: I7 8700K 3.70ghz Update: I gave AwesomeMiner a shot. I created the miner so it was automated and all I had to provide was my bitcoin address - then run it. It’s currently mining Nist5 from zpool and estimating $8/day Some issues I’m currently working on with AwesomeMiner: It’s running my GPU fine, but configuring the CPU takes a little more time. I also have a MSI GT70 laptop with a Nvidia 870m that isn’t able to run the ccminer2.2.2 because it uses Cuda9, so trying to find a work around for that.
How hard is it to mint coins? I want some Fine Silver coins with custom stuff
Ok, so I deal with litecoins on the side as an interesting hobby. Ive sunk a small amount of money into it (less than 500 USD), I also casually mine daily usually when Im sleeping. I want to see a silver coin with this symbol Ł picture here http://xifin.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/litecoin.png So that picture admittedly looks like total shit, and I hate how its the current litecoin logo, however, I think it would look nice in fine silver polished up. How does one go about obtaining custom silver coinage?
So. i just started mining. it has been running for about 10 mins and i haven't gotten ANYTHING. Any help?
i have gotten no shares accepted or stale. im running at 1.2Mh/s on a 7970 OC with an i5 2500k at 3.7Ghz. if this is normal how long should it take for me to get any sign that im getting packages or shares. this is my log so far 2013-03-27 19:44:26: Running command: poclbm.exe minerathome.worker1:[email protected]:8332 --device=1 --platform=0 --verbose -r1 2013-03-27 19:44:26: Listener for "minerathome.worker1" started 2013-03-27 19:44:27: Listener for "minerathome.worker1": api2.bitcoin.cz:8332 27/03/2013 19:44:27, checking for stratum... 2013-03-27 19:44:27: Listener for "minerathome.worker1": api2.bitcoin.cz:8332 27/03/2013 19:44:27, started OpenCL miner on platform 0, device 1 (Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz) 2013-03-27 19:44:29: Listener for "Minerathome.worker1": api2.bitcoin.cz:8332 27/03/2013 19:44:29, diverted to stratum on stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333

Now analysts point out that there are ten programs, with the help of which users can get bitcoins. Program NHM keeps the first line. With its help you can get not only Bitcoin, but also other coins. The program has a simple and convenient interface, there is support for the Russian language. It supports a number of algorithms at once, and the user himself can choose how to mine coins, in addition to bitcoin. Energy consumption when using it is very small. Second place. Claymore’s Dual Miner Many people consider it one of the most effective programs. Created in such a way that mine several currencies at once, bitcoin and ethereum. It is better to work with experienced users, as it is necessary to carry out fine-tuning. The third place is occupied by EasyMiner. The program is free and has a very simple interface, and you can get not only Bitcoin, but also a number of other coins. The user can get all the information about how the mining process is going. It can also be used by beginners. Fourth - BFGMiner. Users can customize it at their discretion. It has a number of functions that allow you to overclock equipment and at the same time monitor how the fans work. Only experienced users can work with it. In fifth place is the CGMiner program. The original version was created exclusively for Bitcoin, but now it can mine some more coins. It does not have a graphics processor, and it is compatible with many models of asics. Program MultiMiner is in the sixth place. It can be used for Bitcoin mining and several dozen cryptocurrencies. It looks for the most current coins, but users can customize it as they wish. It does not consume many PC resources. Bitminter ranked seventh. It has an unusual interface, it looks like a speedometer. Unlike many programs it is easy to manage and have improved stability during operation. MinerGate is on the eighth line. It allows you to mine not only Bitcoin, but also unknown coins. The interface is very simple and straightforward. She automatically chooses the coin that is best to mine. Users can customize it as they wish. GUIminer is next to last. It has a simple interface, there is a large variety of settings and the statistics are shown in real time. The tenth line of analysts gave AwesomeMiner. This program is free and it was created in order to manage a large amount of equipment. It can optimize Bitcoin production in automatic mode, it works exclusively with Windows. It is suitable for mining farms. Using the above programs you can earn more than one coin of bitcoin or another currency, and the cost of paying for electricity will not be too big.
Why hello /pcmasterrace! Do you have time to talk about our Lord and Savior's very own cryptocoin: GabeNcoin?
What is GabenCoin?
GabenCoin is THE cryptocurrency of the master race. It was bestowed to the world on January 26, 2014 at 03:45:28 AM(Timezone unknown). It is named after our beloved and respected leader Sir Gabe Newell, bringer of source, sales, and contentment to the master race. It is a coin that is mined using the scrypt algorithm that disburses 1000 coins per block at a target of one block every minute. At /GabeN_coin we believe that mining cryptocurrency (magic internet money) should be fun for everyone. We keep everything light hearted and fun similar to how things are in /pcmasterrace. If you want to check us out come on down to /gaben_coin.
Why should I mine GabeNs?
Do you enjoy spreading the joy of GabeN to countless others? Do you have a graphics card in your shrine? Then you already have the equipment and the love of GabeN in your heart, so GabeNcoin is perfect for you.
Where can I get real money and items for my GabeNcoin?
Come check /gaben_market , the official trading place of GabeNcoin. You are free to buy, sell or trade GabeN for goods, services, etc.
Bbbuttt... Think about the GPU's!?!?!?
We at /GabeN_coin do not condone gpu abuse and give our gpus plenty of gaming and rest in the time between mining sessions. We are a proud supporter of PETG (People for the Ethical Treatment of Graphics Cards).
How is this different from Bitcoin, Litecoin and other currencies?
Bitcoin and Litecoin use different mining algorithms. Bitcoins is currently solved extremely easily by machines called ASIC miners, which makes it no longer worthwhile for end users to mine. Bitcoin is accepted at many major retailers. We are similar to Litecoin technically speaking (we use Litecoin's scrypt algorithm), but our goal is similar to Dogecoin, in that we want to make a fun currency that people can spread around and reward other users with. We want to spread the goodwill that /pcmasterrace has and want to create a currency that reflects what GabeN does in the best way possible.
How difficult would it be to make a GUI Miner for Garlicoin
I have no coding experience, but I am manging alright on cgminer, but seeing how many people are having issues how hard would it be for someone to make a GUI miner. That was how I got into mining bitcoin, litecoin and dogecoin (GUIMiner and GUIMiner Scrypt) and I would have quit if I didnt have access to that. For anyone who doesn't know what im talking about: https://a.fsdn.com/con/app/proj/guiminerscrypt/screenshots/scrsh2.png/1
The result of my malware scan, in particular the lines below, was very interesting. Obviously I can't tell if MalwareBytes is correct in flagging these. Some of them indicated "PUP.BitcoinMiner" which seems valid but others were marked as "Trojan.BitMiner.TS" or "PUP.Proxy.BCM" ... those may very well be valid downloads but I do know that MalwareBytes did not indicate ALL of the Bitcoin miners I had downloaded... http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/1xe2t7/fug_looks_like_i_was_hacked_can_anyone_confirmhelp/ M:\Bitcoin\guiminer-scrypt_win32_binaries_v0.03.zip (PUP.BitCoinMiner) -> No action taken.

I have never had anything to do with Bitcoins or any other coin until now - and just thought I'd give it a go with my i7 6700k and GTX 1070. I was using GUIminer and it was showing that I was getting approximately 1GH/s, but I couldn't seem to work out how to get my payment from the pool. Anyway, I switched over to NiceHash (while I do research) because it's much more simple - but now I am only getting a max of 150H/s. Yep, just 150. Not 150-anything, just 150. Why the big difference between the two programs? Was GUIminer lying to me? Am I somehow under-performing on NiceHash? For reference, I am on Windows 7 and I'm using NiceHash Miner v18.104.22.168. Edit: I am not mining to make a profit, merely because I am interested in learning about it.
Continuum pool is recommended over deepbit, read this post to use that instead. Instructions are virtually the same. https://deepbit.net/ Sign up for an account. Choose proportional mode. Download this and this and this. First one you just extract. Second one is your mining program. Third one is your wallet where you keep track of all your bitcoins. So you have a deepbit account, right? Well anyways after everything is extracted and installed open up your bitcoin.exe. There is a long string of text near the top in a box. That is your address. That is how you get paid and pay others. Copy that and then goto your account and paste it into the "Your bitcoin address for receiving rewards" box. Save settings. Now go back to your account and click create worker. Set the worker's login tail to 0 and the password to anything you will remember. Leave payout as proportional and click save settings. Open up GuiMiner. File>new other miner and navigate to where you extracted that third link(the one with 4 .exes). Select rpcminer-cuda.exe for your new other miner. Name it CUDA. In the guiminer tab for this new miner(the CUDA tab) set the server to other. Host: pit.deepbit.net Port: 8332 Username: [email protected]_0you must add the _0 Password: The password of your created worker Extra flags: Only needed for more than 1 graphics card, if this is true, read part 2 Go into guiminer and do file > save settings. Now click start mining. The number of MHash/s is completely dependent on your graphics card's power. I have 2 cards that get about 30 MH/s each. To check your mined coins go here. Okay, so now just a bit of explaining. Your deepbit account is merely a holding place for your coins. To actually spend them you need to payout to your address. To do this goto your account and click the Payment link. You can only pay out if you have over 0.01 BTC. When you pay out it will appear in your bitcoin.exe, it takes a while the first time and every payment after that it is near instantaneous. Once it is in your bitcoin.exe congratulations, you now have bitcoins to spend. To spend them you just get the address of the person who you are sending them to then click the send button on bitcoin.exe, put in their address and the amount. Also, goto C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin (if you're on windows7) and backup your wallet.dat file. That is your wallet. It has all of your money. Don't delete it. Part 2, multiple graphics cards. I have 2 graphics cards so setup took a bit more for me, if you have only 1 ignore this section. Only a few things you need to do. Go to your deepbit account and click "create new worker". For worker login tail set it to 1. Set the password to something you will remember. Leave payment proportional. Save settings. Now go to your guiminer. In your original CUDA tab with your username as [email protected]_0 go into the extra flags and put in "-gpu=0". Now go to file>new other worker and choose the rpcminer-cuda.exe as before. Name it CUDA2. In the CUDA2 tab have the following settings. Server: other Host: pit.deepbit.net Port: 8332 Username: [email protected]_1must have the _1 Password: The password you set when you made the new worker on deepbit. Extra flags: -gpu=1 So you end up with 2 tabs, a CUDA tab that has all the same settings except the email ends in _0 and the extra flags as -gpu=0 and a CUDA2 tab with the email ending in _1 and extra flags are -gpu=1. File>save settings in guiminer and click start mining on both tabs. A final piece of advice. This will use your GPU heavily, if you are gaming or anything else and notice that video is lagging go to the tray in the bottom right, find the GuiMiner icon and right click it and close it. Do not click stop mining in guiminer.exe. This always crashes my computer and will likely crash yours. Just close the program from the tray.

Hi Everyone, Im new to mining and have been playing around with using my GPU in my home computer. Which gets a terrible hashrate, between 40-50 MH/s. I've been mining through guiminer and slushpool so far as well. Im curious about the 5GH/s USB ASIC miners from Butterfly labs. Has anyone used one? Will the 5GH/s have a worthy return? Also looking to get some feed back on using one of these for pool mining. Any feedback in general on these devices would be appreciated before I send off almost $300. Even if there are better USB ASIC miners for the price. Product in question
[Q] Is it still possible for someone with a decent GPU to mine Litecoin with a profit?
Hey guys, So I recently started reading into the whole cryptocurrency thing, and thought I might give it a try. Now bitcoin is obviously not an option anymore for someone with no dedicated gear for mining, but it seems Litecoin might still be. What I have : Desktop PC with 4th gen core i5 CPU, AMD 270X GPU, and 8 GB or RAM. Electricity in my country is fairly cheap, and I think it will not be a problem. Is it worth it to start mining? pool or solo? In addition - I've looked into some guides about starting and read about cgminer and guiminer. But it seems the guide was pretty outdated, so I would like to ask if there are guides you recommend for a starting miner to read, that are still relevant today. Thanks!
GPU mining: bitcoin vs litecoin mining? And is it worth it now?
Hello reddit! First, sorry for my english..... Second, I discoverd bitcoin week ago and I succesfully mined some using Guiminer. Alot of fun! But then I discovered litecoin and it came to my mind what would be better to mine for small miners like me? I read that bitcoin mining is not whorth it now? And is it more proffit to mine litecoin? This is what I have:
Gigabyte HD7950 that mines at 530Mh/s on 60*C
I can put another HD card that would give me about 1060Mh/s
I have been getting into the bitcoin frenzy finally and started looking into ways in which I can start out. I'm not the usual n00b since I have everything up and working. Only thing that I am having problems with are the performance issues. I have my Catalyst drivers installed and running and the Radeon is working like it should but at a lower speed than I expected from what I have read about others using this same card series. When I use guiminer with the slush pool, I get at least 80 kH/s, when mining litecoin with guiminer scrypt, I get more performance at 200 kH/s. both less than what I had expected. This is all in windows. When I give it a go in Linux with cgminer, the program doesn't even see the card, apparently it seems to be checking the usb hub instead of rhe PCI and PCI express ports. Is there a way to make cgminer look into the pci slots instead of only checking the usb ports. I can always use a USB asic miner from a company like butterfly labs but I have heard not only negative feedback about not only the performance but also the price in which they are sold for and how it's time consuming to get it to pay you back the extremely large amount of money that you spent on them in the first place. Can I get my Radeon card to mine faster in windows, and how can I get it recognized in Linux by cgminer. This is getting really frustrating, and bitcoin jobs are more competitive than actual jobs. If it's relavent, I only get internet bandwith at 2Mb/s which i think is a major contributing factor but I've been told it isn't.
It is the first time I look into litecoin. From what I understand, it is much like bitcoin(respected and established) only right now it's not subjected to big fluctuations and it is ASIC ignored. I tried mining with GuiMiner on weminelitecoins, but I have only around 150khash/s on my HD7750. Is this normal?
Just the weirdest, most inexplicable sht I've ever dealt with in a rig. [PC, blackscreening, semi-random]
Hi all. I'm utterly, utterly baffled. Stumped. Bemused. Befuddled. Bamboozled. I cannot explain this. At all. I crash on my desktop, often (but not always) while opening Chrome. Crash can be 1m after boot, or 4 hours after boot. Machine blackscreens, stops responding, doesn't send anything to the monitor or respond to scroll lock or capslock. Fairly standard - but I do NOT crash if there's a game running. Literally can run GW2 for as long as I need to, or warframe, or Titanfall, and it's solid as a rock. I've arranged an RMA for my GPU as it's the most recent addition to the sytem (25 Feb 2014) and it was blackscreening on wake (but with a responsive PC/keyboard and the media server was still up), but I'm stumped. I've never seen anything like this. What causes a rig to blackscreen when browsing or opening explorer, but doesn't have ANY problems when it's running high end games at max rez? 2500k @ 4.5GHz R9 290 4GB Factory OC 700W Seasoninc PSU 1 SSD (OS + Games) 2 HDD (Stuff) Midrange Gigabyte mobo, nothign special 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz Win 8 64 Bit etc etc. EDIT: Memtest results are in.

GW2 is running in the background and it's still not crashed... Ideas anyone? Am thinking about ordering a new CPU/Mobo and seeing if that fixes it - next on the list (after another crash) is going to be a W8 re-install. OS re-installed and BIOS updated, still crashes. Definitely hardware. Definitely not RAM, definitely not storage (SSD or HDD). Crashes still independent of load - but most common when clicking on something (Firefox, Chrome or Evernote for example). So the candicate list as far as I can work out is: CPU (moderately likely, though stressing with linpack or OCCT or prime does not cause crashes, and it's happy while playing GW2) mobo (happy while gaming, unhappy when asked to execute a crappy little prgraom like Chrome. Weird? gotta be unlikely) PSU - Feeling like this is a likely candidate. GPU - but doesn't crash when rendering ~100 players at max res in GW2. Soooooo.... can anyone think of a thing to test next? Final edit: running on the onboard GPU on mah telly. Flawless, no crashes at all. I think it's the GPU, the 2D processing chip or whatever must've been borked. Recap: new GPU, no crashes. All is now good!
