If you want to mine GPU Coin with Nvidia GPUs you will need to use the cudaminer software miner. GPUC uses Scrypt-Adaptive-Nfactor and not the standard Scrypt algorithm, so you need to run cudaminer with the –algo=scrypt:2048 parameter and not just with –algo=scrypt. Do have in mind that you should see about half of the typical Scrypt hashrate you get when you start mining for GPU Coin and that is absolutely normal due to the different algorithm being used.

We have tested mining for GPU Coin with a GeForce GTX 750 Ti video card running at stock frequencies and got about 134 KHS hashrate, after overclocking we’ve managed to get up to about 146 KHS. The kernel configuration that we found to work best was T10x24 on the GTX 750 Ti and this is the command line parameters we’ve used to launch the miner:

cudaminer.exe --algo=scrypt:2048 -o stratum+tcp:// -u yourworker.1 -p password -i 0 -l T10x20 -C 1 -H 2

Below you can download the latest version of cudaminer 2014-02-28 for Windows with BAT files ready with the settings for mining GPU Coin, so you just need to configure them with your pool settings and start mining. Note that the default settings are the best for mining with GTX 750 Ti graphics cards, so you might need to change the kernel to another one based on your GPU or just remove the line setting up the kernel to use the autotune feature.

GPU Coin (GPUC) is a new Scrypt-Adaptive-Nfactor cryptocoin that just recently launched and being a ScryptN crypto coin and not a standard Scrypt crypto simply means that you need to use another miner that supports the coin algorithm. If you haven’t mined for VertCoin, then you might not have used the vertcoin miner which is essentially a fork of cgminer with support for Scrypt-Adaptive-Nfactor crypto currency mining. Below you can find and download vertminer 0.5.3 for mining GPU Coin on windows and start mining as soon as GPUC reaches its 2600th block. This will happen in a few hours and you should start mining the coin only after block 2600, because the blocks before that are all with a reward of 1 GPUC. Starting from block 2600 the per solved block reward will go all the way up to the standard reward of 20000 GPUC, so no reason to start mining before block 2600, unless you just want to test and be sure that everything has been setup and works. Note that when mining for Scrypt-Adaptive-Nfactor crypto currencies such as GPU Coin you will see lower hashrate like for example half of the normal hashrate you will be getting when mining standard Scrypt crypto currency such as LTC for example.


Heavycoin (HVC) is a new CPU only mined crypto currency that is just launching/launched and we have compiled for Windows the modified cpuminer software that you can use aside from the wallet to solo mine the coin at launch, while the official pools start working properly. Heavycoin uses a new algorithm called HEFTY1 that makes the coins a promising alternative to the likes of Primecoin (XPM) as a crypto that can only be mined on a CPU (at least for now). You can use the miner to solo mine on Windows systems after HVC mining officially starts on March 8th 12:00 UTC. The archive also includes a version of the minerd for the pool, so far the only working pool for Heavycoin. Note that the pools apparently uses a specially modified version to work for them and it might not work on other pools, that is why we have included both versions in the archive.
