The recent spike in the price of SiaCoin (SC) has apparently sparkled interest in users willing to buy some mining hashrate or to sell their hashrate, so now you are able to do just that on the NiceHash service. Do note that the stratum supported for SIA by NiceHash would require you to use a specific compatible miner and other SIA pool miners will most likely be incompatible for the moment. NiceHash has updated their excavator miner to support Sia stratum mining on their service (only on Nvidia CUDA for the moment), so if you want to try selling your SiaCoin mining hashrate on NiceHash you will have to use it. You can download the latest 64-bit Windows alpha release of excavator 1.2.2a (source) with support for SiaCoin in Nicehash. The equihash miner also supports the Equihash algorithm used by Zcash, Pascal and Decred for the moment on Nvidia. Do note that the excavator miner software does work on both OpenCL AMD GPUs as well as on Nvidia CUDA ones for the supported algorithms. Have in mind though that running the miner on AMD OpenCL GPUs however is a bit more specific than running it on Nvidia CUDA, currently only Equihash and Pascal algorithms work on AMD GPUs!

The NiceHash Miner is a nice and easy solution for mining and getting paid directly in Bitcoin, especially for people that re not much into crypto mining or don’t want to get too deep into things, but still want to make some coins if they have the hardware. NiceHash has opened a signup form for people that are interested in trying out the alpha version of their upcoming version 2.0 of the miner software. Furthermore they have announced that they will randomly select one tester that reports at least one bug or a review and reward him/her with 0.25 BTC. So if you are already using the NiceHash Miner and want to help in the improvement of the upcoming new major version (and possibly get rewarded for that) you might want to sign up.

NiceHash has recently added Ethereum support (Dagger-Hashimoto algorithm) to their service for leasing or renting hashrate and now they have released an updated version of the NiceHash Miner to support it along with some more new algorithms. NiceHash Miner 1.3.0.0 (source) adds support for Ethereum mining for AMD and NVIDIA GPUs as well as support for Blake256r8, Blake256r14 and Blake256r8vnl algorithms for AMD and NVIDIA GPUs. The application switches automatically between the currently most profitable algorithm and makes mining with the CPU or AMD/Nvidia GPUs an easy task for novice users bringing in the highest return for the miner. The application essentially leases your hashrate to users that are willing to pay for it and you get paid directly in Bitcoin. This means that you no longer need to follow exchange rates and to manually trade different crypto currencies, however this also means that directly mining and exchanging a given crypto currency at the right time might be more profitable than to lease your hashrate.
