New EWBF Cuda Equihash Miner v0.1 For GPU Mining

15 Jun
2018

The official Equihash algorithm (equihash 200,9) as used by ZCash (ZEC) may have moved in the domain of ASIC miners, but that does not mean that a modified version of algorithm cannot be still used by other coins and be GPU mined. An example is the Bitcoin Gold (BTG) that is forking to Equihash-BTG (equihash 144,5) and other coins like BitcoinZ (BTCZ) that are forking to equihash 144,5 both of which are not ASIC mineable with Equihash ASIC miners due to the different parameters from the “original” Equihash that uses 200,9. Generally these two variations do require much more video memory in order to work and also the performance in terms of hashrate is significantly lower than that of the original Equihash parameters, so it is hard to make ASIC miners for them.

EWBF, whose original Equihash miner was one of the first and most popular for mining ZCash (ZEC) and other Equihash-based crypto coins, has released a new miner that is targeted at supporting the new Equihash 192,7 and 144,5 algorithms. The new EWBF Cuda Equihash Miner v0.1 is intended for Nvidia GPU mining rigs and is intended for mining of coins that fork from the original Equihash 200,9 algorithm like BTG and BTCZ for example. Aside from options for the two algorithms the miner also comes with an additional option to set personalization string (8 characters) for equihash algorithms that may require this. Do note that this is a closed source miner, there are binaries available for Windows and Linux and there is a 2% developer fee built-in by default.

v0.2
* Reduced amount of rejected shares.
* Performance 144_5 is increased by ~ 5%.
* Added algorithm zhash it is similar to “–algo 144_5 –pers BitcoinZ.” Now you can use “–algo zhash” string.
