Does somebody still remember the Gridseed ASIC miners that could dual-mine BTC and LTC a few years ago? Well, it seems that a new dual mining ASIC miner is coming from Baikal Miner that is capable of mining two different algorithms at the same time. The new Baikal Miner BK-D supports Blake256R14 or Blake256R8 as first algorithm with 280 GHS hashrate and LBRY or Pascal as second algorithm with 70 GHS. You can have the miner mine any of the two pairs of algorithms simultaneously at 1100W of power usage total.

There is still no information about pricing and availability however, Biakal Miner have just announced their new device and it is yet to even become listed on the official company website. Doesn’t seem like too profitable at the moment, so it is more of an interesting product as we did not have dual miners in the fork of ASICs for quite some time. Availability and pricing of the device can make all the difference, so we need to wait and see what they will be. With a price of $2100 USD without a PSU it seems even less interesting…

The LBRY Project and the LBRY Credits (LBC) crypto token used by it is reaching an important milestone for the miners and this is a moment when you might want to pay attention to. The block reward when mining LBRY Credits was constantly increasing in size from 1 to the maximum of 500 LBC over the course of a few months and the reward schedule is such that after peaking at 500 LBC the block reward will start to decrease. This is a good opportunity to catch the peak and mine some coins, especially if you are using Nvidia GPUs where you should give a try of the latest ccMiner from tpruvot. Do note that the project is still in invite mode beta, but there is no problem for you to mine LBC tokens and even trade them on the open market, alternatively you can just buy some of course.

Earlier this month the project has received some serious funding from a venture capital and that is here to show that the potential for LBRY is there and it is really promising idea that only needs to get implemented properly to really have a serious effect on the status quo. If that will happen is yet to be seen, but the project developers promise to open up the beta app by the end of this year (still in invite only mode) – and going to full product release in 2017. The blockchain-based decentralized content-sharing platform geared towards content creators (filmmakers, musicians, writers, or software developers) who want to have full control over their own work that LBRY promises can be a game changer, so make sure you don’t miss the train on this one. Again, there are no guarantees, but the potential is there, so why not give it a try and see for yourself.

ccminer-1-8-3-git

A quick update with a new Windows binary compiled from the latest ccMiner 1.8.3-git fork from tpruvot (source) with some improvement in the LBRY mining performance based on Alexis Provos work and basic implementation of the Veltor algorithm with some other minor fixes. The release below includes two versions of ccMiner, one is 32-bit binary for Windows that is compiled with CUDA 7.5 and with support for Compute 2.0 or newer Nvidia GPUs, and another that is 64-bit Windows binary compiled with CUDA 7.5 for Compute 3.5 or newer Nvidia GPUs. We have tried compiling the 32-bit version of ccminer with CUDA 6.5, but the resulting version did have some issues with LBRY, so we have compiled with 7.5 as well and it worked fine.
