All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
A new version of the ccMiner software for mining Heavycoin, Fuguecoin and the Groestlcoin crypto currencies and other alternative crypto coins that use the same algorithms on Nvidia GPUs has been released. The new version 0.4 of ccMiner improves support for Groestlcoin (GRS), so that you can now pool mine the coin and not just solo mine it. There is also an improvement that should allow people mining Heavycoin that had problems with 0.2 and 0.3 versions crashing to use the new release properly. There are no performance improvements in the new release, so if you are mining HVC with the first release you can continue to do so and if you are mining for Groestlcoin, then you better update to the latest version. You can download the windows binaries of the latest ccMiner below, and you can get the source and compile it yourself if you wish to or you use Linux.
Christian Buchner, the author of the CudaMiner software for mining popular alternative crypto currencies on Nvidia-based GPUs has just released an update for the software CCminer with the new version 0.3 adding support for Groestlcoin (GRS) using the Groestl algorithm. Note that at the moment the Groestlcoin does not have any pools available, so the only way to mine it is solo mining with the wallet for the coin. There are currently also no exchanges available for the GRS crypto, though we will probably soon have some appearing as the coin is already generating some interest, though we might skip on mining this one. The crypto is also supported for GPU mining on AMD hardware with a special miner software, below you can also download the latest version of sph-sgminer we have compiled for windows with support for Groestlcoin (GRS).
CCminer is a new miner for Fuguecoin and Heavycoin mining on Nvidia graphics cards by the author of the CudaMiner software and today a new version has been released. In version 0.2 there are mostly performance optimizations for mining Fuguecoin, so if you use the miner for HVC mining there may be no need to update. Fuguecoin mining was pretty much possible only in solo mining up until recently, but there is now a pool for FugueCoin available that works with the new ccminer (though the pool might need some more work). The pool does not need registration and uses your wallet address as worker, so you can be up and mining in no time if you want to try FugueCoin (FC) mining. We have tested the new miner and the pool and we got about 180 MHS from a single GTX 780 Ti video card. Below you can download the new ccminer version 0.2 for windows and you can get the source and compile from it as well.
