nicehash-new-fixed-order-price

NiceHash and WestHash has introduced a new option for people that are using the services for renting hashrate for various crypto currency algorithms – fixed order price. Up until now you had to set the price you are willing to pay for the hashrate you need and if the current market price, if the current market price was higher you either needed to pay more or wait for cheaper hashrate to be available. On the other hand with fixed order price you are going to get all the hashrate you need for the time-frame you need guaranteed, however this may end up costing you more than with standard orders using the current market price. We have checked the new feature and currently it seems that not yet all of the algorithms are useable with the new fixed order price option as you get an error that not enough hashpower is available, but probably in a few days there should be no problems with hashrate availability. It is interesting to see if the introduction of fixed order price option will also lead to increase in the profit for the people that sell their hashrate using the service in the following days…

minercontrol-1-6-1-gtx-750-ti

We have not updated our Miner Control based package for GTX 750 Ti GPUs for a while, so we have decided it is time to update it with the latest development – version 1.6.1 with an up to date ccMiner fork 1.5.31-git windows binary from SP (compiled for Maxwell cards with Compute 5.0 and 5.2 only). The GTX 750 Ti package is configured to work with NiceHash, WestHash and Yaamp pools, supporting the more profitable X11, X13, X14, X15, Keccack, Lyra2RE and Quark algorithms. We have temporary removed support for NIST5 as it appears to have some issues with the latest releases of ccMiner from SP. It seems that at the moment mining Quark is profitable on Nvidia GPUs as compared to other popular algorithms.

You can download the package below with settings already set for non-overclocked GTX 750 Ti, if you are going to be using it on multiple card mining rigs you need to multiply the hashrate for the algorithms supported. The package will also function just fine on GTX 960, GTX 970 and GTX 980 cards where you would need to set the power usage and hashrate numbers for your respective hardware to get the correct calculations working. To be ready to use it you just need to update the account settings for each pool to reflect your BTC payment address. Do note that the default configuration that we have left is set to mine from time to time for the author of the software (Miner Control) as a donation alternative, but you can change that setting should you wish to.

minercontrol-1-6-0-lyra2re

A new version of the Miner Control tool has been released that introduces support for user defined algorithms that allows for the easy addition of newly released crypto coins as long as they are introduced in a supported pool. We have updated our Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti pack using the tool along with an up to date ccMiner fork 1.5.1-git windows binary from tpruvot. The configuration that we have prepared also includes support for the new Lyra2RE algorithm used by VertCoin (VTC) on top of the previously available algorithms.

You can download the package below with settings already set for non-overclocked GTX 750 Ti, if you are going to be using it on multiple card mining rigs you need to multiply the hashrate for the algorithms supported. The package will also function just fine on GTX 970 and GTX 980 cards where you would need to multiply the power usage and hashrate numbers by roughly 3 times to get the correct calculations working. Of course the best thing would be to set the right values for hashrate and power usage in the config file that the mining rig you have will produce. The GTX 750 Ti package is configured to work NiceHash, WestHash, TradeMyBit, Yaamp and Wafflepool, supporting only the more profitable X11, X13, X15, NIST5 and Lyra2RE algorithms.

To be ready to use it you just need to update the account settings for each pool to reflect your BTC payment address and only for TradeMyBit you would need to set your account worker username and your API key for the update on the current prices. Do note that the default configuration that we have left is set to mine from time to time for the author of the software (Miner Control) as a donation alternative, but you can change that setting should you wish to.
