The latest release of the XMRig 5.10.0 comes with support for the AstroBWT algorithm on AMD GPUs, besides the already available CPU mining support, along with some optimizations for the algorithm used by DERO used by the DERO project since a fork switching the algorithm earlier this month. another important change in the miner is that the cn/gpu algorithm is now disabled by default and will be removed in next major release (v6.x.x), as well as a major TLS (Transport Layer Security) subsystem update. As far as AMD GPU performance on the AstroBWT algorithm compared to CPU mining, an AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB does seem to produce a hashrate slower than that of a mid-range CPU. A higher-end processor such as AMD Ryzen 3900X could be as much as 4 times faster than a RX 580 GPU, so AMD GPU mining may not be that attractive for AstroBWT.

The latest GMiner 2.03 GPU miner adds support for the Qitmeer (PMEER) mining, however do not be in a hurry to try mining using the Cuckoo24 algorithm that has been just added. Have in mind that the Qitmeer (PMEER) mining support comes with a 5% developer fee and is apparently CPU intensive, so you might have trouble using the latest GMiner with Qitmeer (PMEER) mining on mining rigs with most typical dual-core lower performance processors. Frankly we are a bit disappointed that the official release notes do not mention the higher developer fee for the new algorithm, nor that it is apparently heavier in terms of CPU requirements.

The GMiner miner software was originally only an Nvidia GPU miner, although some algorithms are already supported on AMD GPUs as well. Do note that GMiner is a closed source miner for Nvidia and AMD GPUs with binaries available for both Windows and Linux, there is a 2% developer fee built-in the software.

RollerCoin is a free virtual Bitcoin mining game where you play to earn real Bitcoins and altcoins. It takes the concept of Bitcoin mining, but instead of the sophisticated Blockchain and processing algorithms, it lets you test your skills, complete missions, undertake tasks, and play games to earn real Bitcoins. Not only BTC, you can also virtually mine and earn real DogeCoin (DOGE) as well as real Ethereum (ETH) coins, have in mind that even though you can mine DOGE and ETH, you can currently only withdraw real BTC coins earned inside the game. You can try to Build and develop your own mining data center with custom virtual mining hardware, make upgrades and tweaks to boost your mining power with no real-world set-up and no hassle – just sign up, log in, customize your character, and you’re ready to start playing and earning real crypto coins with this game.

This free online game is still being developed and it is even already using its own token called RollerToken (RLT) as a center of the in-game economy and earning model. You start by playing different quick and fun games – Coinclick, Token Blaster, Flappy Rocket, Cryptonoid, Coin-Match, Crypto Hamster, 2048 Coins and Coin-Flip get you extra temporary hashpower to increase your mining capacity and earn more real BTC, DOGE or ETH coins. You can configure and switch how much of the available hashpower is dedicated to mining each of the supported crypto coins, you can put it all to Bitcoin, or split it, so you also mine DOGE and ETH. Once you have mined some coins (or if you deposit some) you can also decide to purchase some actual in-game mining hardware, racks for the miners, then get more rooms for hosting some additional miners as the next step in actually growing your mining operation and expanding the mining hashrate and earning more when each block is mined.
