All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
The Miner Control tool, successor of NiceHash Control that has been developed by StuffOfInterest, is a useful piece of software for Windows users that want to make it simple and easy to mine the most profitable coin or rent their hashrate for the maximum profit without much effort other than setting thing up initially. The author of the original tool however hasn’t been working on it and adding new features for a while, not that the software is not useful enough as it is, but there are still some things that can be improved and added to make it even better. Thankfully the development has been picked up by Bombadil who has released his own improved version called KBomba-Mod (source) that adds some extra features and has further improved the tool. The best thing is that his modified version is fully compatible with the original config file, so you can just add the configuration that you are already using to the latest Miner Control v1.6.4 KBomba-Mod and it will work. Then you can start experimenting with his additions without having to waste any time to migrate to the new version.
The cloud mining service CexIO has introduced new interesting feature on their mining pool GHash.io, namely multipool mining with automatic switching to mine the most profitable crypto coin. The Multi Pool Pro as the service calls its new feature uses the integration with the other services and features such as Bitcoin cloud mining and trading and all goes under a single account. This new feature will be drawing some users for sure as the policy of 0% mining fee for the pool is something that is attractive for many miners. Since the service is still very new the hasrate at the Multipool is not that high, though it is already past 1.5 GHS and continues to grow.
The list of currently supported crypto currencies for the multipool feature include: LTC, MEC, DGB, AUR, WDC, FTC, SXC, DOGE, 42 and CAT. And since the CexIO account balance is being used not all of these coins are supported and you need to use the auto conversion features that allows you to get the mined coins automatically converted to either BTC or LTC. There is also an option to not autoconvert LTC, DOGE, FTC and AUR as you have wallets available for these cryptos inside the service already available.
