All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
The Bitcoin Cloud Hashing service CEX.IO is currently down for an hour for maintenance. This downtime includes only the CEX front-end and the uk1.ghash.io pool, the us1.ghash.io pool and the ghash.io pool frontend are working just fine (you can switch to the US pool). The maintenance mode should continue for an hour and after that everything should be back to normal. During the downtime your cloud mining hashrate should continue mining for you and it should already be about double than normal in order to compensate you for the yesterday’s downtime.
Update: The services are fully restored now and everything should be back to normal.
The Bitcoin Cloud Hashing service CEX.IO is currently experiencing some technical issues, but the support team says it should be shortly back up and all the time lost during the downtime will be compensated to the miners that have purchased GHS, so do not worry. As soon as the service is back and operational your hashrate should be temporary much higher than normal until you are compensated for the downtime and then the hashrate should return back to its normal value.
Update: It seems that things are starting to get back to normal, the ghash.io cloud mining workers are starting to get back on and you should see your hashrate getting restored back to normal…
The first Dualminer USB ASIC devices that can simultaneously mine Litecoins (LTC) and Bitcoins (BTC) and alternative crypto currencies based on scrypt and SHA-256 that we’ve already mentioned here have started appearing on eBay. These devices based on a single Gridchip GC3355 processor chip from Gridseed are rated as capable of: 500MH/s SHA-256 and 40KH/s Scrypt when operating for mining both, or 1.6GH/s when mining only BTC or 70KH/s when mining only LTC. Again, price wise these are not very interesting products, unless you want to be able to try the Gridseed chips and see how well they can perform. What would be more interesting are multiple-chip devices that offer significantly higher performance, but the good thing is that things are finally happening for Gridseed and we are actually seeing devices based on their innovative dual mining SHA-256 and Scrypt at the same time Gridchip GC3355 chips.
