All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
Blakecoin (BLC) is an interesting new alternative crypto coin that uses Blake-256 algorithm – faster than Scrypt, SHA-256 and Keccak, making it an interesting new coin to mine if you have some spare resources. The Blake-256 algorithm hashrate is about 3x faster than what you are getting from the same hardware mining for Bitcoin. So for example with a Radeon R9 280X you can expect to get a hashrate of about 2-2.5 GH/s or more when mining Blackecoin. You cannot use the standard cgminer for mining BLC, you need to use a special version of cgminer modified for mining Blakecoin, and you can download the windows version of cgminer 3.1.1 for Blakecoin mining below.
