Lately we are seeing a number of new miners for GPUs that are not based on an already existing source code and are closed source releases with a small built-in developer fee. The T-Rex mines is one of those new miners and it is an interesting option for Nvidia GPU owners that are looking for profitable new coins based on less popular mining algorithms. The latest version T-Rex 0.5.1 does come with a binaries for both Windows and Linux and supports the following algorithms: lyra2z, phi2, hsr, c11, x17, phi and tribus offering good performance. The miner is intended for newer Nvidia GPUs such as Maxwell and the newest Pascal architectures, so it will not work on old Nvidia GPUs. There is 1% development fee built-in and you need to have a recent video driver installed as the binaries for both Linux and Windows are compiled for CUDA 9.1/9.2.

There are a number of Linux-based mining distributions available out there, but most of them do have some limitation or a drawback or maybe are not very user friendly for non-advanced users. Hive OS is a relatively new Linux based mining platform that is trying to change that and offer a single package for all your GPU and even Bitmain ASIC miners for easy deployment, monitoring and control. The installation of the OS on any AMD or Nvidia GPU mining rig is quick and easy and then you take control from the cloud via a convenient web-based user interface, so no need to remotely login to each system and manage it or monitor it this way. The Hive OS comes with most popular miners for AMD and Nvidia GPUs for many algorithms and they are maintained, though you can add miners yourself as well without the need to compile them yourself from source. The mining platform is ideal for people with more than just a few mining rigs or ASIC miners as it allows you to easily monitor their operation and control them if needed including overclocking or underclocking to optimize them for efficiency or performance.

Hive OS is free to try and use for small miners with up to 3 mining rigs with some limitations, when you go above 3 mining rigs there is a fee of 3$ per mining rig per month that you need to pay in order to continue using the software. The good thing is that you can register and try it for free and if it works for your needs and covers your requirements you can then start deploying it on a large mining farm for example. Do note that there are different clients available for Linux GPU mining rigs, ASIC miners and now there is also even a beta version available for Windows, so you may want to try that as well. The Hive OS ASIC client currently supports Antminer S9, S9i, L3+, L3++, D3, A3, T9+ and Z9-Mini and it needs to be installed via SSH to every single device you want to use with Hive OS. The Linux distribution of Hive OS can be used with a USB flash drive, no need to install it on a hard drive or and SSD. It is a full featured operating system intended for mining, unlike the Hive OS clients for ASICs or for Windows that do need the host operating system already installed and work on top of it.

The new EWBF Cuda Equihash Miner is turning out to be the go to miner for Nvidia GPUs when talking about Equihash solvers other than the “original” 200,9 one used by Zcash (ZEC) now that there are ASIC miners available for it. The latest version 0.4 adds support for a new solver for Equihash 210,9 used by AION along with the other already supported Equihash solvers 192,7, 144,5 and 96,5. The latest version also includes some improvements and fixes as well, so if you are using previous version you might want to upgrade to v.04. We are reminding you that the EWBF Cuda Equihash Miner is a closed source miner, there are CUDA 8.0 and 9.1 binaries available for Windows and Linux and there is a 2% developer fee built-in by default.
