If you are looking to mine PascalCoin (PASC) on your crypto mining hardware you need to check out the RHminer for the RandomHash algorithm. The miner is open source with official binaries available fo Linux and Windows for different CPUs as well as for more-recent Nvidia GPUs. The current implementation of rhminer for the RandomHash algorithm does manage to provide faster performance on a more recent CPU than on Nvidia GPUs, the faster the CPU and the more the cores you have – the higher performance you will get. Still there is work being done to further optimize Nvidia GPU performance (currently supported are Kepler, Maxwell, Pascal and Volta architectures with their own binaries). By default the official binaries are with 1% developer fee built-in, though you can compile from source with no dev fee if you want to have that removed.

There is another interesting alternative to maximize the performance of your GPU mining rigs if you use the Nanominer for GPU mining and at the same time for RandomHash CPU mining as the miner supports this kind of dual mining mode. Of course this solution will be better if you have a more powerful CPU and not a slow Celeron processor as this may actually hinder GPU performance in some cases if you try to dual mine… still it won’t hurt to give it a try.

The latest Nanominer 1.1.0 by Nanopool comes with support for the new CryptoNight R algorithm used after the recent Monero (XMR) fork, though for now it is only supported on Nvidia GPUs. Nanominer supports Ethash, CryptoNight (v6, v7, v8, R), Ubqhash on GPU and and RandomHash/PASC on CPU at the same time (dual mining mode), though only CryptoNight R and Ethash are supported on Nvidia GPUs, the rest of the algorithms are AMD only. Performance wise the Nanominer 1.1.0 is faster on GTX 1080 Ti according on our tests compared to what the latest XMR-Stak 2.10.0 is delivering and the difference is not small… about 80 hashes more with the Nanominer for about 840+ H/s mining CryptoNight R.

Nanominer is available for both Linux and Windows, it is a closed source miner that has a 1% developer fee for the GPU supported algorithms and 3% for RandomHash on CPU. The Nanominer miner does work on all pools for the supported algorithms and is not limited only to the mining pools provided by Nanopool, so you are not limited to use only their services.

Interesting update coming from NiceHash as they have announced they are currently implementing support for PascalCoin (PASC) on their marketplace for users selling and renting hashrate. There are currently two mining pools available for PASC from Nanopool and from Suprnova and it is being traded on Poloniex with a very serious volume. Recently there was was a more turbulene surrounding the coin thanks to unexpected fork of the blockchain following a wallet update, but it seems that the issue has been resolved for the moment. We’ve had our doubts that PascalCoin may have a short lived pump and dump on Poloniex. It seems that we are past over that phase already with the user interest remaining and the support for PASC increasing, so you might want to keep an eye out for PascalCoin (PASC) if you haven’t been doing it already as of late…
