All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
The service for leasing and renting mining rigs for different crypto algorithms – Mining Rig Rentals has added support for the Dagger-Hashimoto algorithm that is used by Ethereum (ETH) as well as some other coins that have since been forked from it. There are two categories for Ethereum mining rigs available and we need to clarify the difference as there might be some confusion as to why. Dagger-Hashimoto(G) is for rigs that support Getwork while Dagger-Hashimoto(S) is for rigs supporting stratum, most of the Ethereum mining pools do rely on Getwork, though there are a few such as Ethpool that support stratum over their own miner called qtminer as well as getwork with standard ethminer. There is also the option to use a stratum proxy that will translate to getwork requests as an alternative to a pools directly supporting a stratum implementation for mining. The current stats show that out of 55 available getwork rigs 22 are available for renting or about half, but there are no rigs with stratum support currently listed at the service.
With the already available support for X11, X13 and X15 the Mining Rig Rentals service for users leasing their mining rigs and users willing to rent mining hashrate has also introduced support for the X14 algorithm. X11 however still remains the most popular algorithm for GPU mining rigs at the moment now that SHA-256 and Scrypt are already in the domain of ASIC miners and other algorithms using GPUs such as X13, Keccak, NIST5, Fresh and so on are still a lot behind the interest in X11. Nevertheless MRR is the first service to offer support for X14 algorithm and the service also offers support for some other algorithms that are not being supported by other alternatives for renting mining rigs or hashrate. Currently there are quite a few rigs already available for rent supporting X14 and very few are already rented, so if you need X14 hashrate you might want to check the prices and the available hashrate.
