CPU and AMD GPU Mining for LBRY Credits (LBC) Now Available

10 Jul


LBRY is a new blockchain-based decentralized content-sharing platform geared towards content creators (filmmakers, musicians, writers, or software developers) who want to have full control over their own work. There are no ads, no corporate censors, and LBRY takes no portion of your income as a content creator and consumers can also benefit as there is finally an alternative to the big media stores. It has been in development for a while, but just recently it was launched in Beta, though you still need to request an invitation in order to be able to get early access. The LBRY network uses its own crypto token called LBRY Credits (LBC) that you can already mine, even if you still have not received your early access to the platform for the moment (while waiting to get it). Not to mention that there is also an operational market for LBRY Credits on Bittrex, so that you can also trade them when you mine some.

Initially LBRY Credits (LBC) mining was only possible with a CPU miner released by bitbandi (source), with compiled Windows binaries by the miner author available here. The CPU miner however is not very useful anymore as a GPU miner has been released shortly after in the form of an sgminer 5.4.0 forked to support the algorithm used by LBRY (source) that is much faster, you can find a downloadable 64-bit Windows binary release below that you can try if you are interested. Do note that the sgminer for LBRY currently works only on AMD GPUs, but with this big interest we are hopefully also going to soon see a GPU miner for Nvidia GPUs as well. There are already two mining pools available with more probably to follow, the first one was made available by Suprnova (not yet updated for the difficulty adjustment of the GPU miner and the GPU miner can provide lower hashrate as a result) and the second one is by Pool.mn that already adjusts difficulty for the significantly higher hashrate of GPUs.

To download and try the sgminer fork for LBRY Credits mining on AMD GPUs (64-bit Windows binary)…

I couldn’t get this to work on RX480 Windows 10 64 bit build…

I get:

RX 480 is having the same problem with other algorithms as well.

Also looking for an Nvidia miner… Let me know if anyone hears something.

It’s working for me with an HD 7950 on Windows 10 64-bit. Getting 39.8 Mh/s.

Thomas Zarebczan, install drivers 15.12.

Lucky, can’t because these are new cards and that driver wouldn’t detect them.


July 11th, 2016 at 18:25

Admin, what cards do we see on the screenshot with 59M? There is no way for windows 8.1 install 15.12, what can you recommend to run miner?


July 11th, 2016 at 20:57

290X on Suprnova LBRY pool using 15.12, they actually make about 75 MHS each on https://pool.mn/lbry/


July 11th, 2016 at 21:39

But Poolmn doesn’t work – “Pools Mainpage soon !”. How to use it?


July 12th, 2016 at 07:51

works only with amd gpus, can we have a tutorial how to compile cpuminer-lbry???

under rentable miners at miningrigrentals, its says this guy is using ccminer. so does an nvidia miner exist for this? https://s32.postimg.org/s8og6k2dx/lbry_miner.png


July 16th, 2016 at 15:14

There is apparently ccminer from tpruvot and sp is also working on one, but they are not yet publicly available… should be released in a couple of days.

sgminer.exe –gpu-platform 1 -o stratum+tcp://yiimp.ccminer.org:3334 -u bUbjb692rpzYSi6ttD8YzsGqr1rP -p d=32 –kernel=lbry -I 20,22,18

i had to add the –gpu-platform 1 to get my 390x rig running good luck

Thanks, works great on GTX 970.

be careful LBC, is a false cryptomonnaies . for now the price : has a big fall and is the founder of this money That control the price. They made ??this fall to buy at half price . Currently the founders -have 98% of the money That Their total control over the money . simply -even if you remove my comments I’ll rewrite em again with –other account I have the total patient. LBC Scaaaaaaaam .
Now this is the third time that deletes my messages. he blocked me on twetter and slick because I tell the truth . they will not even Advent open dialogue and find solutions. so I declared war against your scam.
