There have been many algorithms discussed and proposed over the years in the cryptocurrency space. There are many arguments for and against each Proof-of-Work algorithm, however, we’ll discuss two most widely known of them – CryptoNight and EquiHash.
Mining Tips & Guides
You can think of cryptojacking as a virus which pays the hacker. Cryptojacking is one of the quickest growing cyber-attacks, with reports of web-browser cryptojacking attacks rising 30% in this year alone.
To continue where we left off in the previous part, this part delves further deeper into the various consensus mechanisms that have been making a lot of news lately and are being proven as worthy successors to the consensus problem. These algorithms have worked really well in theory but are yet to be adopted into […]
Combining GPU’s in your rig is the best way to achieve high hashrates and so having multiple cards on your miner is preferred. You don’t have to fill all the slots of your motherboard right away though. You can start with only one or two cards and upgrade your rig as you go.
If you’re choosing a frame for your mining rig, remember, it secures your hardware and it should contain minimal to no metal as the conductive nature of metals can affect the performance and health of your mining rig.
Dear Miners, Our support team is putting its best foot forward to make sure all your queries are handled in time and efficiently. To play your hand into speeding up the process, please follow these simple 5 tips below.
In this part of the tutorial, we will go over, step-by-step, how to put together all of the components that make up an effective GPU mining rig. In the first part, we discussed various mining hardware, the pros, and cons of each and some great tips and resources for getting started.
Everyone’s heard about blockchain but I bet you can’t say the same about sidechain. Sidechain is a mechanism that allows digital assets from any blockchain to be used on any other blockchain and moved back if needed. It’s used when one wants more flexible blockchain solutions.
When you start mining with MinerGate, run the Benchmark tool at first. It’s in the MinerGate menu, between “Miner” and “Achievements”. The tool will iterate through all the coins you can mine using your configuration and run specific tests for each of them. This will help you to calibrate your expectations, not only in terms […]
To get the highest profit while mining, do a research on which coin(s) you think will increase in value. In terms of pure math, you can input your hashrate into a mining calculator and get an estimate of daily coins and dollar value earned. Try the WhatToMine and MinerGate mining calculators.
