It seems that the last day MonaCoin (MONA) has exploded in price and profitability for mining as a result, so there is increased interest from miners. So here is a 32-bit Windows binary (CUDA 8.0) of the latest ccMiner 2.2-based fork from Nanashi Meiyo-Meijin (source) with optimized Lyra2REv2 performance. The code is based around the ccMiner 2.2 release from tpruvot, but offers faster performance for Lyra2REv2 with up to about 10% (depending on the GPU being used) compared to other publicly available forks. The Lyra2REv2 algorithm is performing very well on Nvidia-based mining rigs, so with the current low altcoin mining profitability you might want to give it a try. The profitability of VertCoin (VTC) is lower, but still pretty high compared to some other coins and algorithms at the moment, so it is also an alternative as the profit for MONA can start to drop soon.

There is a new update of the ccMiner fork from tpruvot v2.2.2 (source) available for Nvidia GPU miners that adds supports for new algorithms and comes with some other fixes and improvements. The two new algorithms introduced are HSR used by Hshare/Hcash (x13 + custom hash) as well as the Phi used by LuxCoin, there are improvements for the SIB algorithm for Maxwell and Pascal cards. The new version comes with a small fix to handle more than 9 cards on Linux (-d 10+), an attempt to free Equihash memory “properly” and –submit-stale parameter for the supernova pool (which changes difficulty too fast).

The official Windows binary releases on tpruvot’s GitHub are compiled with CUDA 9 and they do require a more recent Nvidia video driver version 384.xx or newer in order to have support for the latest CUDA version. We have compiled a 32-bit Windows Binary for CUDA 8.0 that you can download below, it does not seem much different performance wise, it can just be used on systems with older drivers without having to update the video drivers first with ones supporting CUDA.

ccminer-1-8-1-tpruvot

Tpruvot has made an official release of his updated ccMiner fork (source) version 1.8.1 along with Windows x86 and x64 binaries available for download. The x86 Windows binary is compiled with VS2013 and CUDA 8.0 RC and the x64 binary is compiled with CUDA 7.5, it is best to use the latest video drivers to have support for CUDA 8.0.

The new ccMiner 1.8.1 adds support for mining Siacoin (SC) on Nvidia GPUs using CUDA, SIA uses Blake2-B algorithm, though at the moment different pools still seem to rely on different protocols for mining and not all of them are yet supported by ccMiner. The miner supports the SIA Nanopool RPC (getwork over http) as well as the getwork over Stratum implementation of Suprnova, but not yet the Siaminingpool stratum protocol (you should still be able to mine there via getwork). The hashrate seems to be slightly better than that Sia Go Miner that uses OpenCL and also works on Nvidia GPUs.

The new version 1.8.1 also comes with small improvement in the LBRY hashrate improvements (by alexis78) over the previous release 1.8 that introduced Library Credits mining. So if you are mining LBC with Nvidia GPUs, then you might wan to update to the new release in order to get slightly better hashrate. The Lyra2RE support has also been updated with the with the Nanashi Meiyo-Meijin improvements, so it should be faster than before.
