All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
While LBRY is still in Beta and you need to request an invitation in order to be able to get early access to the platform (currently only available for Mac OSX and Linux), people have been mining the LBRY Credits (LBC) for a while now on AMD via the dedicated sgminer fork or on CPU, but today tpruvot has updated his ccMiner fork (source) with the final 1.8 release that adds support for LBRY Credits mining on Nvidia GPUs as well.
We have compiled a Windows binary of the latest ccMiner 1.8 source code from github and you can download and try it for mining LBC from the link below. It is a 32-bit Windows binary compiled with VS2013 using CUDA 7.5 for Compute 2.0 to Compute 5.2 Nvidia GPUs, though it also works on Nvidia Pascal GPUs. We are going to be testing the miner with different CUDA versions to see if there is a better working combination and if we find such we are going to update the binary. If you are in a hurry to get to mining LBRY Credits however you should be all set to start with this release and enjoy the good performance that Nvidia GPUs provide for this algorithm. Below is a quick benchmark with a few Nvidia GPUs using this Windows binary as an idea to what you can expect in terms of hashrate for mining LBRY Credits.
Mining hashrate for LBRY Credits:
– GTX 970 – 127 MHS
– GTX 980 Ti – 156 MHS
– GTX 1070 – 242 MHS
– GTX 1080 – 313 MHS
