All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
A few days ago a modified x11 sgminer appeared offering higher performance for AMD GPU miners. That release however has been controversial as the author did not release the source code and only binaries thus violating the GPL license of sgminer. Furthermore he has released only compiled binaries and added a forced 2% fee by hardcoding the miner to switch to another pool to mine some of the time. And while the author’s approach was not good at all, still many people used the miner just because of the significant performance increase not caring about the rest. The good news is that there is now a fork of sph-sgminer from lasybear that uses the kernel from the controversial miner providing the same performance, but with the source code available and no 2% forced fee. We have tried it and can confirm it is working well, we have also compiled a windows binary that you can download and try.
