Which Algo Switching GPU Profit Miner?



Recently my L3 has been performing incredibly well on mining rig rentals so I have been looking to the GPU side of my operation a little bit more. Currently I sold all my GPU rigs and I am left with two GTX 1070 to mine with. Alot of people use Nicehash as its very very simply but with Nicehash you aren't always making the most of those GPU's and getting a possibly more BTC

So the alternatives....

Firstly I looked into Awesome miner. I already use Awesome miner to monitor my L3 so it was really easy to set it up. I created a profit miner for my GTX 1070 and selected the algorithms I wanted to mine and entered my BTC address for payout. Then it was a simple case of right clicking the profit miner and start.


Now my only issue with Awesome miner is the payout in Dollars is a little optimistic at least, its always incredibly high and its very unlikely you will see a return on that scale. Secondly I probably wouldn't use Blockmasters as a pool if you only have 1-2 cards as the payout is extremely high. Other than that once you get your head around the many menus within Awesome miner its a great program which can monitor your rigs with ease

Next I still wasn't 100% with Awesome miner, mainly because it was the free version and I wanted a bit more freedom without paying. So I done some more research and found another program which is 100% free and claims to get more profit than Awesome Miner

NemosMiner is based on MPH miner which I did not really get on with but Nemos is much easier thanks to its friendly config setup. Once you have downloaded and unzipped Nemos miner you will be presented with an interface, ok its not as pretty as Awesome Miner but it does the job.


Once you have gone into config entered your BTC address and selected the pools you wish to mine at its simply a case of hitting the start button. Once started every 120 seconds it will check to make sure you are mining the most profitable algo across multiple pools. I have to say I have found this to be my most profitable program that I have used, it may not be as simple as Awesome miner but it is worth the setting up

You can download Nemos Miner from the official Github

Dont forget if you want to be really really lazy and looking for something which is the most simple then I would probably stick to Nicehash

KuCoin Officially Reopen Referral Program


Good news for all you traders or people with lots and lots of friends Kucoin has officially reopened their referral bonus program. The idea is you invite your friends or trading community to Kucoin through your ref link, once they have signed up you receive a percentage of their trades. Its very much like Binance and their own referral program but Kucoin tends to list alot more less popular coins but it still has a good volume to trade with

Not to long ago it was Poloniex and Bittrex that set the standard for exchanges but now with Binance taking over it has set a new standard which companies like Kucoin are closely following.

Meet Bitmains New Equihash Miner


Bitmain are seriously rolling out some ASIC miners this year and at the same time causing a bit of a division within the mining community. The newest miner was released this week is the Antminer Z9 mini which mines Equihash, a previous GPU miners favourite. It will hash along at 10k Sols with a power usage of 300 watts, which is a very very good ratio when you compare a 1080 which roughly hashes at 600 Sols. If you were to get your hands on one of these today and plug it in you would earn roughly around $35 a day but expect this to plummet hugely when the first batch is released and difficulty goes through the roof

This will kill off Equihash GPU mining I hear you say, well it looks as though nearly all Equihash coins are announcing a fork already. All except ZEC which are yet to make an announcement but have previously stated they wouldn't fork if ASIC's were created.

Personally this is just another miner which I will stay away from, I am still waiting to see a profit calculator for the B3 miner and see an active pool
