@ciprianpt philakone is full of it. No way any R7-370 gets 19-21MH, you can check with others on this forum, we all know they get reported and efective 15-16MH avg. at the pool and no more. I’ve even checked his “magic settings” out on the exact same brand cards he has and got nothing more than 15.3MH.
Again, you’ll need to do some research. Some of the miners support only particular GPUs, CPUs, motherboards or operating systems. You’ll need to double-check that the miner you select supports your setup.
For me, my aim was to find out more about the Ethereum network as I am a software developer and the possibility of programming smart contracts is like playing with a giant box of Lego Mindstorm, with unlimited pieces.
Von der Krypto-Währungen ist Bitcoin noch immer der bekannteste Vertreter. Mit diesem virtuellen Geld kann man anonym, aber auch schon in viele Shops im Netz bezahlen. Neben Bitcoin gibt es noch jede Menge anderer Krypto-Währungen. Der Shooting-Star darunter ist Ethereum oder einfach „Ether“. Seit dem Frühling 2017 hat Ether fast 4000 % an Wert gewonnen und ein Ende ist nicht absehbar. Was viele nicht wissen: Kryptogeld kann man selbst „schürfen“ und ich habe es mit Ethereum ausprobiert.
Early announcements indicated that Bitcoin Gold would have a closed launch and a presale of coins. A new batch of BTG was to be mined in the first week after the fork and subsequently distributed to designated investors, not unlike an ICO. Proceeds of this “ICO” were then to be used for development and other Bgold-related purposes.
Because of the way Ethereum hashes work, miners need to have systems with graphics cards with specialized graphics processing units (GPUs) and a lot of memory. Experts are recommending graphics cards with at least 3GB of RAM to get started today. Those high-powered graphics cards can be expensive, and the popularity of Ethereum mining has led to a shortage in the supply.
Once you successfully installed the driver with just one GPU, shut down your PC and plug in all of the other GPU’s. After that, when you turn the PC back on it should automatically detect each of them and it will install the drivers for all of them. Just remember that it will take some time (about 5-10 minutes) for all of the GPU’s to be detected properly. You can open up the Device manager, to see if all  of the GPU’s are listed there. Just turn the PC on and wait 5-10 minutes before doing anything, Windows will do it’s job.
The specific proof-of-work algorithm that ethereum uses is called ‘ethash’, designed to require more memory to make it harder to mine using expensive ASICs – specialized mining chips that are now the only profitable way of mining bitcoin.
The way I see it, the solution is simple. (To put it oversimplified), you don’t store and access the dag, you store and access the cache, and then each asic chip on-the-fly computes the full dag, grabbing the needed components for a given nonce and discarding the buffer.
Developers plan to ditch proof-of-work, the algorithm that the network currently uses to determine which transactions are valid and protect it from tampering, in favor of proof of stake, where the network is secured by the owners of tokens.
This video was done to represent 40 days of mining with a single RX 570 (non bios modded) to represent a best case scenario of what a gamer who wanted to use his RX 570 to mine Ethereum would have looked like.
I got a GPU doing around 5MH/S and I decided to mine solo for now. I read about not being connected to the internet while mining solo shouldn’t make problems. Can you confirm that? In which periods do I have to start geth –rpc to keep the chain up synchronized, especially for solo mining?
This guide is magnificent, and easy to follow. Are there any good alternatives for storing ether? I’m mining at 26 MHS, and poloniex will not update my balance until i’ve mined 1 ethereum total, that might be a while.
You can click the Download button for the current driver or choose “Download Previous Drivers & Software” on the right hand side which will allow you to choose older versions that are known as great drivers for mining based on your cards such as:
My recollection of how Bitcoin turned out indicates that most of those people will not make money. That, in fact, the simple rules of how markets work mean that most cannot make money, on several counts:
Take the online notebook described in “What is Ethereum?”. The network would not come to consensus about the ‘state’ of the notebook (say, if a note is added or deleted) without the computational power to process the changes.
Das Bitcoin-Netzwerk hat eine globale Blockschwierigkeit. Gültige Blöcke müssen einen Hash unterhalb dieses Ziels haben. Bitcoin-Mining-Pools haben auch eine pool-spezifische Anteils-Schwierigkeit, die für Anteile eine Untergrenze festlegt.
Next up, we pit our selection of GPUs against each other in a hash rate benchmark to determine which will be our personal miner of choice. We will then take that card, and offer some tips to maximize performance and reduce the impact on your utility bill. Let’s get to it…
Next, open the Ethereum wallet and generate a new account and contract based wallet. This wallet will contain the payout address at which you’ll receive mining from your pool or directly from the blockchain.
Once you’re mining, make sure you watch your rig. The first 24-48hours are essential and will determine if your system is stable or not. If it runs without problems during that period, then you should be fine. I’d recommend staying within reachable distance of your rig during this time as all sorts of issues can occur, and if you’re extremely unlucky, you could end up burning a building down.
Das typische Einsteigermodell, ist die Radeon PX480 GPU. Diese ist, bei einem Preis von nur $300, ideal um das Minen auszuprobieren. Hinzukommt, dass die Grafikkarte, für diesen Preis, eine erstaunlich hohe Hash-Rate hat und zudem noch einen sehr geringen Energieverbrauch bietet. Die Radeon PX480 ist also eine Ethereum Mining Hardware die trotz des geringen Preises eine hohe Leistung bringt.
Now after your GPU’s are at their default settings, we’ll be using OverdriveNtool to handle the overclocking,target the GPU’s temperature and it’s  undervolting. There is no other tool where you can have full control of your GPU and the ability to quickly optimize the GPU’s. You can’t be 100% sure the overclock/undervolt settings are working properly. This is a special software that gives you FULL access to your AMD GPU’s and it’s very easy to use once you know the basics.
Ethereum’s Ethash algorithm is one of many algorithms designed for optimal mining on GPUs. Generally speaking, a GPU is good for mining all GPU-mineable cryptocurrency (including Ethereum Classic, Monero, Zcash, and Vertcoin). This situation gives GPU miners enviable flexibility, in order to be able to switch between over 40 coins that are based on their current profitability.
Disclosure: Mining metrics are calculated based on a network hash rate of 23,555,434,604 GH/s and using a BTC – USD exchange rate of 1 BTC = $ 9,634.65. These figures vary based on the total network hash rate and on the BTC to USD conversion rate. Block reward is fixed at 12.5 BTC and future block reward reductions are not taken into account. The average block time used in the calculation is 600 seconds. The electricity price used in generating these metrics is $ 0.12 per kWh. Network hash rate varies over time, this is just an estimation based on current values.
1. Based on the stores that you usually buy GPU (if you could add international info will be awesome) do you think it is reasonable to invest in the rigs or should you hodl your finances and wait for a price drop? I know it is speculative kind of a question and things change every second but I am just qurious about your opinion.
The  Nvidia GTX 1070   is what I’ve been putting in all the rigs I’ve built for folks since about April of 2017 when all the AMD Rx 4 and 5 series cards sold out and doubled in price on secondary markets. It can mine at 30Mh/s while sipping only 100 watts of electricity. After testing several models, my favorite is the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Windforce OC (model # GV-N1070WF2OC-8GD). It has a twin fan design and seems to run cooler than most of the other 1070 models I’ve tested. If that model is unavailable, any twin fan designed 1070 will work well. Blower models like the Gigabyte 1070 Founders Edition mine at the same hash rate, but need more supplemental cooling like a box fan pointed at your mining rig. I’ve linked to Amazon above, but be sure to check eBay as well for availability since Amazon often limits the number of GPU units you can purchase. 
   If you mine ETC on some pool that does not accept wallet address but requires Username.Worker instead, the best way is to specify “-allcoins etc”, in this mode devfee mining will be on ETC pools and DAG won’t be recreated at all.
On the other hand, GPUs are great calculators for anything, and with a push of a button you can mine a different coin. Now you have the choice – picking and choosing when to mine and which coin to mine. This gives GPUs the upperhand and can greatly increase profits.
10. If miner cannot generate DAG file, check environment variables (see Readme), check if your GPU has 3GB memory at least, and check if you have enough virtual memory (pagefile). If all this does not help, try to install more physical RAM.
i got 1 out of the 5 GPUs to mine… attempting to start another ethminer instance specifying next card crashes that specific instance (while the first one keeps hashing away)… so no dice with getting all 5 running on win10
