All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
There are people that are so much into crypto currencies that they follow all new launches and try to mine what they consider will bring them more profit, and then there are the people that just want to take it easy and get a good profit from mining without too much work required and risk. If you are in the second group and are mining with Nvidia GPUs such as the GTX 750 Ti, then you might want to check out a tool called NiceHash Control that can track what is the most profitable crypto algorithm to mine and to sell your hashrate at NiceHash. The tool does take into account your hardware and what hashrate it provides you with for each algorithm, as well as the current price for the various algorithms supported by NiceHash and starts and stops specific miner software to mine the most profitable algorithm at the moment. In the end you are getting paid for your hashrate in Bitcoins directly and you make a nice profit, without having to track exchanges and exchange rates or follow new coin launches all the time.
All of this however does take some tweaking and tinkering in order to configure the software and miner to work with your hardware, and since we already did play with it we have decided to give you a package already configured for single GTX 750 Ti card mining and that will mine the most profitable algorithm choosing between X11, X13, X15 and Nist5. We don’t believe that mining for Keccak or Scrypt-N on Nvidia GPUs will be very profitable, let alone if you are going to be using Scrypt or SHA256 where ASIC miners have already taken over. If you have more than a single GTX 750 Ti card just multiply the hashrate set for a single card in the config file by the number of cards in your rig. The good thing is that this tool actually does take into account the hashrate you get with various algorithms, so even if the NiceHash website says that X15 is the most profitable algorithm for the moment it may mine X11 or X13 on your system. The reasonis that while X15 might be more profitable in general, the higher hashrate you get mining X11 with the bit lower price for it might still turn to be more profitable in your case, as even with higher price the X15 hashrate will be lower than the one you get with X11 or X13 for example. We have included the latest ccMiner fork with X15 support, so all that is left for you is to set your BTC payment address in the config and run the AUTOSTART.BAT file, unless you have to do some hashrate changes in the config as well based on your GPUs that is. You might also want to check out the Readme file for some extra information about the NiceHash Control. So far the tool is working pretty well, though it needs some more polishing, unfortunately it is only available for Windows, so Linux users are not able to take advantage from it.
