Siacoin (SC) Open Mining Pool Now Available from Nanopool

8 Jul


Siacoin (SC) has been picking up recently and there have been talks about privet mining pools available, but the good news is that you can already GPU mine the SIA crypto tokens that are powering a decentralized storage network in an open pool. The open Siacoin mining pool already available is and you can join it and start mining in no time. The pool does not need a registration, all you need to have is a wallet address – generate one with a SIA local wallet or use an exchange generated wallet from Poloniex or Yunbi. You can download the GPU miner for Siacoin written in in Go for pool mining (source) compiled and ready to be used from the link below (64-bit release for Windows) or use the latest Claymore Dual Miner that brings support for Dual Mining Ethereum along with Decred or Siacoin as a second coin (previously only Decred was available for dual mining).


The SIA Nanopool pool uses PPLNS payout scheme, has a fee of 2%, executes payouts once a day with a minimum payout currently set at 5000 Siacoins. Out test with the Siacoin Go miner for Siacoin shows about 1116 MHS as a hashrate for a single Radeon R9 290X GPU without overclocking, so you can have that number as a reference. The miner also works on Nvidia GPUs (it is still using OpenCL, not CUDA), as a reference number you can expect to get about 803 MHS from a GTX 970, do note however that for Nvidia-based mining rigs the go miner is the only choice as the Claymore dual miner is only for AMD GPUs. If you want to focus on mining Ethereum and mine Siacoin as a secondary coin and have AMD GPU mining rigs, then you can also try the latest Claymore dual miner version 5.0 that now gives you the choice for mine Decred or Siacoin besides Ethereum. Please report your hashrate and success in running the miner on different hardware, both AMD and Nvidia-based GPUs, in the comments below. should you decide to try mining Siacoin.

Do you have a working sia mining calculator? I found but the difficulty input doesn’t seem to be for TH so idk how to correctly calculate with it

When are payouts? I have no idea looking at the website. One place says four times, another says one mine. Nothing shows up under my miner either.

Do note that the pool was just launched and is still in beta and from what we see it may have not found a block yet, so it is just for testing for the moment, do not throw all your hashrate there for the moment…

The zipfile in the link seems to be corrupt, does not unpack properly.

Nanopool pays 4 times per day for ETH.

Which drivers are you using? And what are the clocks, I know you said no overclocking, but some non-reference cards have higher clocks out of the box. I can only get around 900 with my 290x…


July 9th, 2016 at 21:50

Using Catalyst 15.12 AMD driver, stock reference clocks for the 290X, the GTX 970 result is with factory overclocked Gigabyte WF3 cards and latest official driver.

Thanks. I was getting ~900 on 16.5.3 I tried on another with 15.12 and got the right speed on the miner but it was only submitting duplicate shares. Just changed back to 15.12 on the first rig and got what you’re getting. Thanks again.

July 10th, 2016 at 18:20 is a PPS pool not in beta, and is doing actual consistent payouts compared to nanopool (which pays out whenever it seems, and they have a clear warning wallet balances might be incorrect, use at own risk.. etc).

Scamalama Ding Dong!
