All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
The cloud mining company Genesis Mining is going to be adding a new alternative crypto coin to the list of coins you can mine with the cloud hashrate you can purchase from them. After a survey among the company’s customers to see what are the most wanted coins to be added, the list was shortened to just 4 crypto coins – Ziftrcoin (ZRC), Peercoin (PPC), Primecoin (XPM) and Zetacoin (ZET). Out of these four two are using SHA-256 – Zetacoin and Peercoin, so you should be able to mine them directly and the two others – Ziftrcoin and Primecoin are using different algorithms, so you will be able to get paid in them if any of them gets chosen as the new addition.
So we come to the point where you can vote in a poll to choose the coin you want from the four top choices and get the chance to win some cloud mining hashrate. Three people from all who vote will be getting 500 GHS lifetime cloud mining hashrate each at the service (the winner will be picked randomly). All you have to do is cast your vote in the special poll at the official Facebook page of Genesis Mining and you have until Friday May 22, 2015 at 11 pm CET to do so.
You can now mine ZiftrCOIN (ZRC) with AMD-based video cards thanks to a new fork of sgminer 5.1.0 that adds support for ZR5 (source) and we have compiled a windows binary that will allow you to try it out. The windows binary is compiled for Win32, so it should work on wider range of systems using 32-bit or 64-bit Windows. Do note that ZiftrCOIN GPU mining is still in early stage, so it might be a bit buggy initially and further optimizations in performance could be possible. The coins does seem to handle well high intensity like 18 or 20, you can lower the intensity value if it does not work for you with high setting. The GPU mining availability for ZiftrCOIN is going to make CPU mining the coin pointless, so you might want to switch to something else if you have idle CPU power for mining crypto currencies.
ZiftrCOIN (ZRC) is an innovative altcoin that works like a coupon, the gateway coin to mainstream cryptocurrency adoption, aims to onboard the next 10 million cryptocurrency users by putting cryptocurrency into the hands of consumers and enabling them to conduct simple, secure transactions at their favorite online merchants.
