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.

At the moment Nvidia GPU miners have the advantage for mining X11-Gost with a faster hashrate for the more recent Maxwell and Pascal GPUs than AMD miners. Still AMD miners might be interested in checking out the X11-Gost algorithm used by SIBCoin (SIB) as it is not that power hungry and with the increased interest with the recent addition of the algorithm on NiceHash as it might offer a nice profitability for users willing to sell their hashrate and get paid in Bitcoins directly.

So if you are using AMD GPU mining rigs you might want to check out X11-Gost on NiceHash using the latest sgminer 5.6.0 Nicehash Fork (source). We are seeing a hasrate of between 7 MH/s and 8 MH/s on stock Radeon RX 480 and while still slower than about 11 MH/s on a stock Nvidia GTX 1070 the fact that the algorithm is not that power demanding and you can use lower power for the GPUs may make it attractive for some users, so do give it a try. Older generation of AMD GPUs may not be the best choice for this algorithm performance wise and the same pretty much goes for older Nvidia GPUs, but for AMD Polaris and Nvidia Maxwell and Pascal it is.

Interesting update coming from NiceHash as they have announced they are currently implementing support for PascalCoin (PASC) on their marketplace for users selling and renting hashrate. There are currently two mining pools available for PASC from Nanopool and from Suprnova and it is being traded on Poloniex with a very serious volume. Recently there was was a more turbulene surrounding the coin thanks to unexpected fork of the blockchain following a wallet update, but it seems that the issue has been resolved for the moment. We’ve had our doubts that PascalCoin may have a short lived pump and dump on Poloniex. It seems that we are past over that phase already with the user interest remaining and the support for PASC increasing, so you might want to keep an eye out for PascalCoin (PASC) if you haven’t been doing it already as of late…
