There is a new update of the zjazz CUDA Miner 0.97 for the Cuckoo Cycle algorithm that is being used by the Merit (MRT) and BitCash (BITC) projects. The new version comes with a number of improvements in functionality improvements, including support for BitCash mining on 3GB Nvdia GPUs (Merit was already supported on these), basic ccminer-like API support, list of failover pools is now supported and more to make mining better and problem free experience. You can find the full changelog of the new release below.

zjazz CUDA Miner 0.97 Changelog:

- Bitcash 3Gb GPUs support on Windows
- Linux CUDA 9.1 and CUDA 9.2 binaries
- First API version: ccminer-like. summary, pool, gpus and quit functions available. -b/--api-bind
- List of failover pools added. Use multiple times -o (--url)
- GPU timeout feature added: Application quits if new blocks from stratum are received and GPUs are not mining. Timeout value can be set with --gpu-timeout
- Improved stats, show hashrate detailed per GPU with --hashrate-per-gpu
- Bugfix for the --cuckoo-intensity 18 issue
- Added some debug info messages. --debug-info to enable them
- User friendly GPU memory errors presentation
- Set the number of threads per device --device-gpu-threads
- Hashrate reliable % message added
- Per line ok/ko state message added
- Force GPU processing to stop when connection with stratum server is lost
- Time to wait before reconnecting configurable: -R/--retry-pause parameter added

The Cuckoo Cycle algorithm is CPU intensive and the zjazz CUDA miner provides multiple options to reduce the CPU load if you are mining on a GPU mining rig with a slower processor that is having trouble coping up, so make sure you check these out. Do note that the zjazz CUDA Miner is a closed source software available as binary releases for both Windows and Linux and comes with a built-in development fee of 2%.

Some more invites are available for the invite-only Merit project that we have introduced a while ago, so if you are interested in it and want to give it a try mining or using, then feel free to apply using the link below. Merit (MRT) coins can still only be mined with Nvidia GPUs, though AMD miner is in the works for a while now, there is already a third-parity Merit CUDA miner available with more options that you can try as well. Merit has its own trading market (MRT-BTC) with escrow that works fast and is really reliable, so you can buy and sell coins on the market. Since it is invite only and invites need to be mined and it is not yet listed on any major exchange, Merit is still kind of under the radar, but the last few weeks there has been a significant growth with increased interest and more people joining the project. We have a limited number of invites available to give away, so please do not waste them, we are going to send invites as soon as possible on a first-come, first-served basis. Sending multiple invite requests will not get you accepted faster, in fact will have the opposite effect of not getting you invited at all!

The Merit Network is growing and things are moving at a faster pace now than they were before, so if you still haven’t checked out Merit (MRT), then you might want to do so now. The source code of the official Merit mining pool that is based on CoiniumServ has been released a couple of days ago and this has resulted in a number of new pools for MRT appearing. Below you can find a list of all of the currently available mining pools for Merit (MRT):

https://pool.merit.me/
https://parachute.merit.me/
https://icemining.ca/
http://merit.samp.io/
https://merit.roto2.org/
http://merit.firehash.net/
http://merit.tera.tn/

The first two are the official mining pools, the third one (IceMining) is currently the largest MRT mining pool in terms of hashrate and is the only one not based on the official code, the rest are new pools based on the official source and they are still pretty small in terms of hashrate and number of miners and could use some hashrate.

The unofficial zjazz CUDA miner for Merit is now available with a special release for 3GB VRAM GPUs (the minimum required in order to be able to mine MRT with your Nvidia GPU. There is also an experimental Linux build of the miner available for people that want to give it a try. You can of course also use the latest official Merit miner for both Windows and Linux mining rigs (also only for Nvidia GPUs). AMD GPU miner for Merit is still in development, though it seems that performance wise it is doing much worse than what Nvidia GPUs deliver in terms of hashrate, so you may have to wait some more before it is made available in a usable optimized form. We remind you that Merit (MRT) is an invite only network and you need to get one in order to unlock your wallet and start mining the MRT crypto currency, we have some invites available, so feel free to request one uing the link below.
