All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
Jackpotcoin (JPC) is a new crypto coin that uses a new hash algorithm called Jackpot Hashing Algorithm (JHA) and thus requires special miner software in order to be mined. The coin has a CPU miner available, but we are going to be skipping this one as there is also a GPU miner available already. The OpenCL miner for Jackpotcoin is based on the official sph-sgminer, but since the official release is not yet available with JPC support you need to use the fork for Jackpotcoin for now (source code). we have compiled a windows binary from the latest source that you can download below, our test on a single Radeon R9 280X GPU showed a performance of about 2.2-2.3 MHS mining Jackpotcoin, so it seems that Nvidia is currently the better choice for mining JPC on the GPU.
