The latest TT-Miner Version 2.1.15 comes with improved support and performance for ZCoin (MTP algorithm) mining on NiceHash and that makes it attractive for use on NiceHash at the moment where MTP is among the most profitable algorithms. The expected performance is up to about 3.5 MH/s for GTX 1080 Ti and stability wise things seem good, though direct mining of ZCoin might also be worth it long term. It is interesting to note that other popular miners with MTP support are still lacking support for NiceHash mining, so the latest TT-Miner might still be the best option you have, not to mention that performance wise it could also be currently the fastest miner for MTP thanks to the latest optimizations.

TT-Miner supports ProgPOW, Ethash, UBQhash, MTP and Myriad-Groestl algorithms on Nvidia GPUs and is available for Windows only, a closed source miner with 1% developer fee for all of the supported algorithms.

The latest TT-Miner Version 2.1.12 that has just been released comes with support for ZCoin (MTP algorithm) mining on NiceHash following the recent addition of MTP on NiceHash with very limited support miner wise. With the performance of about 3.3 MH/s for GTX 1080 Ti we are seeing it is profitable on NiceHash at the moment, so you might want to give it a go. TT-Miner seems more stable and problem free compared to the ccminer fork with MTP support on NiceHash that was initially made available by NiceHash to use with their service after the initial announcement of MTP support.

TT-Miner supports ProgPOW, Ethash, UBQhash, MTP and Myriad-Groestl algorithms on Nvidia GPUs and is available for Windows only, a closed source miner with 1% developer fee for all of the supported algos. Currently the miner has support for mining MTP and Ethash on NiceHash, though MTP support is probably what makes it the most interesting at the moment.

ProgPoW or Programmatic Proof-of-Work can be seen as the successor of the Ethash algorithm with enhanced ASIC resistance and while it has been available for a while there hasn’t been that much going around the new algorithm up until recently. The fact that Ethereum (ETH) is considering the switch from Ethash to ProgPoW in the near future has sparkled interest in the algorithm and we may soon start seeing more coins and miners talking about the use of that particular algo. Some of you might remember that Bitcoin Interest (BCI) was the first crypto coin to switch to the ProgPoW a couple of months ago. And while BCI hasn’t been doing that well actually, before or even after the fork to ProgPoW, it is still interesting to note that it was the first to use it and it also provided pre-compiled binaries of the initial miner for ProgPow.

Meanwhile there hasn’t been that much alternative miners up until recently that had support for ProgPow, probably due to the fact that further significant optimizations in terms of performance might not be possible for the available mining hardware. One of the more recent and not very popular yet miners available with ProgPoW support is TT-Miner, a closed source miner with 1% developer fee available only for Windows and working only on more recent Nvidia GPUs. TT-Miner (TradeTec Miner) also supports Ethash, UBQhash and MTP aside from ProgPoW and in our limited experience it has performed pretty good on a variety of Nvidia GPUs.

Another really fresh ProgPow miner that was just made available and that apparently needs more work is Progminer. It is forked from Ethminer and the source is available along with compiled binaries for Windows and Linux, do note that there are separate pre-compiled binaries available for AMD and for Nvidia GPUs, so make sure you download the correct one. This is probably the best miner to go for at the moment for ProgPoW specs wise, unless you have some trouble making it work on your particular hardware as we have encountered some issues already… Feel free to report your issues (if you have) and what performance running any of these ProgPoW miners in the comments below.
