“Ethereum Mining für Dummies”

Configuring remote administration will allow you to disconnect the monitor, keyboard, and mouse from your mining rig and manage it from another computer—even over the internet, if you wish. Windows 10 Professional and up have the built-in option to use Remote Desktop, although it’s disabled by default and must be configured. It’s a fine option if you’re looking for something basic and don’t want to install additional software.
The name of the chipset produced by Nvidia or AMD for each card remains the same (such as RX 480). You’ll notice that various models are available from different Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). For example, you might encounter the MSI Gaming Radeon RX 480.
Never underestimate the power of the Radeon RX 400 series. The Radeon RX 480 is not only the cheapest GPU in this list, it is also easily the most economic GPU. This card has a hash rate of 25 MH/s while only drawing 150 W at max load. You’ll make over $700 USD annually per card! Comparitively to the RX 580, this card is an awesome Ethereum miner!

Thanks for your post. Wondering if mining is still profitable? I’ve been thinking of it with a 6-12 GPU system. I’ve been skeptic due to increasing difficulty in mining and with Ether moving to PoS
Hopefully at this step everything is great. In the command prompt or PowerShell you used above, cd into /cpp-ethereum/ethminer/Debug. You’re going to see a file called `libcurld.dll`. Make a copy of that file and place it in the same directory, removing the ‘d’ in the name to make it `libcurl.dll`. I’m not sure why, but there’s some build error which causes that name to be incorrect, which causes ethminer to fail at runtime.
Ethereum offers a truly anonymous and decentralized currency, and while its adaptation hasn’t been quite as widespread as BitCoin, it is certainly the second most popular crypto currency of available and offers investors that missed out on the gold rush of BitCoin to get in on the ground floor of another crypto currency that stands to have the same kind of extreme growth potential moving forward.
The bad news is that if you want maximum performance out of your rig, you’ll probably eventually want to flash your GPU BIOS under either operating system, but we’ll get into that in part 4 of this guide. But if you already know that overwriting your GPU BIOS with a custom replacement is outside of your comfort zone, then sticking with Windows will at least allow you to undervolt.
What I recommend is running a command prompt (I assume you’re in Windows) and then navigating to the Ethereum folder and running the bat file. Doing it this way, the output will not disappear and you’ll be able to get the error message which will help in diagnosis.
-etha   Ethereum algorithm mode for AMD cards. 0 – optimized for fast cards, 1 – optimized for slow cards, 2 – for gpu-pro Linux drivers. -1 – autodetect (default, automatically selects between 0 and 1).
Einige ahnungslose Neulinge werden mit dem Vorwand gelockt, jeden Tag Kryptowährungen zu verdienen, wenn sie Rechenleistung kaufen. Das klingt natürlich sehr verlockend, so investieren viele Neulinge zuerst in Mining Anlagen, statt sich ein Portfolio mit stabilen und bewährten Kryptowährungen zu erstellen.
In terms of Ethereum mining performance, the R9 series has aged far more gracefully (even though it was introduced in 2015) than the more recent RX 400 / 500 series (which launched in 2016 and 2017, respectively).
Furthermore, since ethereum aims to transition from proof-of-work mining to ‘proof of stake’ – which we discuss below – buying an ASIC might not be a smart option since it likely won’t prove useful for long.
Anything using large amounts of electricty is bound to generate heat, and this is especially true for hardware typically used for in mining scenarios. Unless you live somewhere where it’s constantly below 15 degrees celcius indoors, the heat generated by this equiptment will make any room uncomfortably hot.
Obviously a lot more research would have to go into it, but I find it hard to believe that grabbing the dag bits via an “on the fly” asic method would be any faster than random memory accesses on a DAG stored in memory.
Hat der Miner eine korrekte Nonce (zufällige Zahl) gefunden, entsteht ein Hashwert der gültig ist. Damit kann ein Miner den anderen Netzwerkteilnehmern in einer Blockchain beweisen, dass er einen „Arbeitsaufwand“ getätigt hat. Dank diesem Arbeitsaufwand, kann ein Miner bestätigen, dass sein erstellter Block den Regeln der Blockchain entspricht.
Es kann sich rechnen – unter den von dir genannten Begebenheiten ist allerdings davon abzuraten. Du kannst es ja einfach mal überschlagen.. ist ja recht einfach zu errechnen. Vom Miner allein über den Stromanbieter wird es aber aller Wahrscheinlichkeit nach eher ein Verlustgeschäft.
The calculations neglect the electricity used by the other computer components, but these are usually negligible, especially if you have multiple GPUs in a single rig. In my case, I am mining with multiple RX480s, and expect to generate around $200 a month. Since all the equipment cost me $2000, I will break even after ten months, and make $400 profit or 20% by the end of the year.
MEMORY – This works identically as the GPU core, except it’s for the memory. This is the holy grail, this is the most important part of GPU mining and it’s very RANDOM. There is no fixed values from which you can know that it will work 100% on your GPU. There is just one proper way of doing it without risking any problems. We will need to disable P0 and P1 by double clicking on them.
Graphic cards are particularly adapted for these simple, repeated and parallel operations : they have many ALUs (Arithmetic Logic Unit) or shaders for video processing. Whereas your CPU is a very good executive, a GPU is an unmatched laborer ! For the same cost, you’ll end up with a far better mining rate with a GPU. And should you prefer CPU-mining, you’ll need a high-end CPU, meaning usually high-end mobo plus RAM. Moreover, having several CPUs is expensive and quite unusual for desktop computers, while multi-GPU doesn’t scare anyone.
Je nach Kurs und Können kann es sich sogar lohnen, gar nicht zu Minen, sondern einfach mit der Währung zu handeln. Ether bei niedrigem Kurs kaufen und dann bei hohem Kurs wieder verkaufen, kann sich lohnen.
MinerGate’s Variable Difficulty algorithm, allows small portions of the Ethereum Blocks to be sent to miners according to their equipment and effective hashrate, making Ethereum mining possible in any computer with a simple click of a mouse!
Die Difficulty ist meines Wissens noch nie spürbar gesunken und der Hype ist noch nicht vorüber. Solange 400€ für Karten gezahlt werden, steigt sie weiterhin enorm an. Dazu tausende Vorbestellungen, die noch geliefert werden.
Settling on a GPU is a complex task and you can browse plenty of advice about which ones are the most profitable based on hash rate performance, power consumption and the initial expense of the card. You probably want to set up a mining rig, a machine that might be composed of multiple GPUs and might take a week to build.
Due to the costs and logistical issues with ASIC mining, it inevitably leads to powerful mining farms taking over huge percentages of the hash rate. Bitcoin needs decentralization of mining to prevent a 51% attack on the network. However, you can take a look at some of the large-scale mining taking place in China, with buildings full of ASICs.
That’s correct, GPU will be discouraged due to the fact that the algorithm requires a lot of memory per thread. I’m pretty sure people will find ways around, but the goal is for dagger to continue adapting.
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. 
-cclock   set target GPU core clock speed, in MHz. If not specified or zero, miner will not change current clock speed. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-cclock 1000,1050,1100,0”.
Bitmain S9 designed by Bit Continent is currently the main type of machine that is specially designed for the mining of Pittcoin. However, since the hash calculation adopted by bitcoin is mainly based on the SHA-256 algorithm, it not only consumes computing power but also consumes energy. In addition, as the number of bitcoins in the future becomes more and more scarce, The harder it is, the bitter continent begins to develop its own ether for the future.
Set up SSH: If you’re going to set up SSH, there are two important things you need to do. Firstly, set up port forwarding on your router, so that traffic redirects to your rig. Secondly, use the below commands, to change the SSH port to something different e.g. 2221. While this won’t stop an attack if there is a port scan, it will reduce the possibility of an attack by a crawler. You can also consider using private & public keys to 100% ensure that only you can access the rig.
