awesome-miner-automated-profit-switching

Awesome Miner is a Windows-based application for managing and monitoring mining rigs for Bitcoin, Litecoin and other crypto currencies supporting multiple mining engines including the most commonly used ones such as cgminer and sgminer, so that it can be used with not only GPU mining rigs, but some FPGA and ASICs as well. But probably the most interesting feature of the Awesome Miner software is the so called Awesome Profit Switching that allows you to get the highest profit from your mining hardware by automatically switching to the most profitable pool and algorithm. Currently the automatic profit switching algorithm supports TradeMyBit, NiceHash, WestHash, LTCRabbit and Yaamp as pools.

Do note that the Awesome Miner software has a Free edition as well as a few paid versions available, the main difference is that the paid versions offer some more extras as well as well as higher maximum number of mining instances. The free version of Awesome Miner has a limit of 2 miner processes, so this is the most significant difference compared to the paid version of the software. However you can still try the free version to check out the Awesome Profit Switching functionality. And if you still haven’t tried the free Nicehash Control Tool, you might also check the packages that we have prepared for AMD and Nvidia GPUs as an alternative, even if they only support NiceHash.

We have updated our NiceHash Control tool package with ccMiner for use with GeForce GTX 750 Ti to the latest NiceHash Control version 1.1.1 that adds up some new useful features (it is possible to be used on other Nvidia-based GPUs with at least Compute 3.0 capabilities). The idea for this tool is to sell your hashrate at the NiceHash service making the highest possible profit by switching to the most profitable mining algorithm all the time. Our ready to use package supports the X11, X13, X15 and NIST5 algorithms as we consider that these are currently the most profitable ones as well as the ones that will use less power and generate less heat. The update introduces support for backup pools for each algorithm, so that when NiceHash is down you will move to the TradeMyBit pool as a backup (you need a registration there and to setup the backup pool’s user and password to your own).

What you need to do in order to use our GeForce GTX 750 Ti mining pack is to edit the config file and set your BTC address, edit the backup pool settings in the MINERS.bat file and then just start the AUTOSTART.BAT file to fire up the software. What is left is to monitor your earnings on the NiceHash website, and you can check the log.txt file for information what algorithm was switched to and when. This version of the package does provide a simple, but nicely working way for backup pool as the ccMiner software still does not have official failover pool support built-in. If you like this tool and our GeForce GTX 750 Ti mining pack based around it, don’t forget to send a tip to the author of the NiceHash Control software.

NHC Version 1.1.1 has introduced new way of killing the miner window, however we have been getting occasional errors for access denied using the new version and when this problem appears the software stops switching the algorithms and the last mining session continues. If you do encounter similar problem on either the Nvidia or AMD packs you might want to replace the executable with the previous version 1.1.0. We might revert the NHC version in the packs to it if we are not able to figure out what is causing the issue.

We have updated our NiceHash Control tool package with sgminer for use with AMD Radeon R9 280X or 7970 GPUs to the latest NiceHash Control version 1.1.1 that adds up some new useful features. The idea for this tool is to sell your hashrate at the NiceHash service making the highest possible profit by switching to the most profitable mining algorithm all the time. Our ready to use package supports the X11, X13, X15 and NIST5 algorithms as we consider that these are currently the most profitable ones as well as the ones that will use less power and generate less heat. The update available here also introduces backup pools for each algorithm, so that when NiceHash is down you will move to the TradeMyBit pool as a backup (you need a registration there and to setup the backup pool’s user and password to your own).

What you need to do in order to use our AMD Radeon 280X mining pack is to edit the config file and set your BTC address, edit the backup pool settings in the MINERS.bat file and then just start the AUTOSTART.BAT file to fire up the software. What is left is to monitor your earnings on the NiceHash website, and you can check the log.txt file for information what algorithm was switched to and when. This version of the package does take advantage of the failover pool feature that sgminer supports, something that is still not available in the ccMiner for Nvidia, where we have to use a workaround to provide a backup pool support. If you like this tool and our AMD Radeon 280X mining pack based around it, don’t forget to send a tip to the author of the NiceHash Control software. Another important note, make sure to use the latest AMD beta video drivers in order to maximize your hashrate.
