It has been a quite a while since the last update of tpruvot’s ccminer fork (source), but there it is a new version 2.3.1 available now that comes with support for Lyra2REv3, sha256q, exosis and Blake2b standard algorithms. The official binary is 64-bit Windows only built with CUDA 10 for SM3+ devices, SM 7.5 architecture is also supported, but doesn’t seem to bring any advantage, for others variants you can build from the source code as the miner is opensource. Do note that CUDA 10 support requires an Nvidia video driver version 410.48 or newer.

The most notable thing abut the new release is the support for Lyra2REv3 that will soon be used by the Vertcoin (VTC) after the upcoming hardfork expected to happen in less than two days. The fork should happen in around February 2nd as it is planned for block 1080000, so make sure you are ready with the required local wallet upgrade (if you are using one) as well as with a miner supporting the new Lyra2REv3 algorithm like the latest ccminer from tpruvot available for Nvidia GPU miners.

It has been a while since we have seen an update of tpruvot’s ccminer fork (source), but there it is now a new version 2.2.6 that comes with support for the new PHI2 algorithum for Luxcoin (LUX) that has just forked from the old PHI1612 as well as support for the new Allium algorithm for Garlic. There is an official binary release compiled for Windows available for download, do note it is a 64-bit only and it has been compiled with CUDA 9.0, so make sure that you have up to date video drivers for your Nvidia GPUs installed.

On a side note, Mining Rig Rentals has also just added support for people willing to buy or sell their PHI2 mining hahsrate. So if you need more PHI2 mining power or want to sell your hashrate instead, then you might want to check it out as well. There are still just a few rigs available, but with demand there should be more appearing and if there is demand you can also make some extra profit leasing your rig(s) as well.
