NиceHash is preparing an update for their NiceHash Miner software to a new major version 2 and they are working on completely redesigning the interface of the tool for monitoring and choosing the highest profit for users on their hashrate renting/buying service. The software benchmarks all your CPU and GPU hardware to get an idea on what hashrate in various algorithms it is capable of delivering and based on that information switches between different algorithms to maximize your mining profit.

The NiceHash Miner software is essentially a GUI making mining easier for people that are not so into crypto currency, but still want to make some profit from it without having to get into too much details. The software uses popular mining software for the various supported algorithms and is often updated in order to provide the best possible performance for its users.

The new version 2 of NiceHash Miner is still in Alpha and available for people to try it out and report bugs and issues they discover, but soon it will most likely be also available to the general public as well.

With the new version things should become even easier for regular users such as gamers that already have a decent video card and a higher-end processor that can be utilized to mine when not used for gaming. The software might also be a good choice for regular users that haven’t yet started building multi-GPU mining rigs, provided that they do have a decent CPU and/or GPU available or even a few of them lying around and not doing much.

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.
