The Bitcoin Cloud Hashing service CEX.IO is currently down for an hour for a scheduled maintenance (3PM-4PM GMT). This downtime includes only the CEX cloud mining services that should be restored and the miners with cloud hashrate should be compensated with brief higher hashrate than they actually have purchased as the CEX does normally when there is downtime. The maintenance mode should continue for an hour and after that everything should be back to normal. The Ghash.io mining pool is fully operational and you can use it with dedicated miners if you have any during the maintenance period.

Update: Everything is back to normal now and you should’ve received slight boost for a bit in your hashrate to be compensated for the downtime.

Karma (KARM), formerly Karmacoin, is a digital cryptocurrency based on the X11 algorithm. Like the philosophy behind the name, Karma stands for everyone reaping the results of his/her actions. By supporting good causes and helping others through Karma, Karma developers aim to make it the primary digital currency for rewarding good deeds and spreading good karma.

In a way, Karma is a new way to “Like” your family, friends, organizations, causes, and others. You can think of it as an actual token of appreciation. The goal of Karma is to become the global “currency with a heart”. Karma can be used for tipping, donating, buying, or micro financing; it enables users to send small amounts of money to friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, charities, and other causes for the good things they do.

cgminer-3-12-3-antminer-u1

The latest version of cgminer 3.12.3 has built-in support for the Bitmain AntMiner U1 USB ASIC devices, so there is no need to use the older modified version of cgminer 3.8.5 that Bitmain provides for use with their USB Bitcoin miners. The support in the new cgminer 3.12.3 offers much easier use and more stable hasrate, the HW error rate also seems a bit lower compared to the results with the older version of cgminer. So we would advice to download and use the new cgminer 3.12.3 along with your AntMiner U1 devices and below you can find information on how to run it:

cgminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://us-west.multipool.us:7777 -u yourworker.1 -p password --icarus-timing=short --anu-freq 200

The above example will run the AntMiner U1 at 200 MHz and should produce a hasrate of about 1.6GH/s, by increasing the frequency number to 250 for example you can get 2 GH/s hashrate and 275 should get you 2.2 GH/s. Do have in mind that overclocking the AntMiner U1 should be done only after you add a cooling fan to improve the operating temperature of the device. We’ve already measured the operating temperature of the AntMiner U1 at 1.6 GH/s and they do get quite hot even at “stock” frequency. Don’t forget to change the pol and worker/password with your own settings!
