It seems that the last day MonaCoin (MONA) has exploded in price and profitability for mining as a result, so there is increased interest from miners. So here is a 32-bit Windows binary (CUDA 8.0) of the latest ccMiner 2.2-based fork from Nanashi Meiyo-Meijin (source) with optimized Lyra2REv2 performance. The code is based around the ccMiner 2.2 release from tpruvot, but offers faster performance for Lyra2REv2 with up to about 10% (depending on the GPU being used) compared to other publicly available forks. The Lyra2REv2 algorithm is performing very well on Nvidia-based mining rigs, so with the current low altcoin mining profitability you might want to give it a try. The profitability of VertCoin (VTC) is lower, but still pretty high compared to some other coins and algorithms at the moment, so it is also an alternative as the profit for MONA can start to drop soon.

There is a new update of the ccMiner fork from tpruvot v2.2.2 (source) available for Nvidia GPU miners that adds supports for new algorithms and comes with some other fixes and improvements. The two new algorithms introduced are HSR used by Hshare/Hcash (x13 + custom hash) as well as the Phi used by LuxCoin, there are improvements for the SIB algorithm for Maxwell and Pascal cards. The new version comes with a small fix to handle more than 9 cards on Linux (-d 10+), an attempt to free Equihash memory “properly” and –submit-stale parameter for the supernova pool (which changes difficulty too fast).

The official Windows binary releases on tpruvot’s GitHub are compiled with CUDA 9 and they do require a more recent Nvidia video driver version 384.xx or newer in order to have support for the latest CUDA version. We have compiled a 32-bit Windows Binary for CUDA 8.0 that you can download below, it does not seem much different performance wise, it can just be used on systems with older drivers without having to update the video drivers first with ones supporting CUDA.

Here is an updated ccMiner 1.7.6-r10 Widows binary of the Nanashi Meiyo-Meijin fork (source) with optimized Lyra2RE and Lyra2REv2 performance. The latest r10 update fixes the hashrate issues that were present with other versions of ccMiner on the latest Nvidia Pascal GPUs such as GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. You can see a brief test of the performance of the new 32-bit Windows binary of the miner compiled with VS2013 and CUDA 8.0 below.

ccMiner 1.7.6-r10 Neoscrypt performance:
– GTX 1080 – 985 KHS
– GTX 1070 – 889 KHS
– GTX 980 Ti – 840 KHS

Just as a reference the latest ccMiner fork by SP has managed to provide just about 365 KHS on GTX 1080 and 668 KHS on GTX 1070, so now you can fully utilize the performance of the new Nvidia Pascal GPUs for mining NeoScrypt-based crypto coins. Do note that the results quoted above are with
