The RavenCoin (RVN) fork has been successfully executed and mining with GPUs is back once more with mining profitability of RVN the highest at the moment among GPU-mineable altcoins thanks to no significant change in the price. The hashrate is now about 5 times lower than before the fork, so most likely the presence of FPGAs and even maybe ASIC miners for the X16R algorithm is really significant. Anyway, apart from z-enemy and T-Rex miners for Nvidia there is a third option available now with X16Rv2 support. The new entry is the just released CryptoDredge v0.22.0 that now supports the X16Rv2 algorithm, like with other closed source Nvidia GPU miners, CryptoDredge also comes with a 1% dev fee for the X16RV2 algorithm. Our quick tests have shown that on GTX 1080 Ti the performance of CryptoDredge miner with X16Rv2 is not as high as on the current hashrate leader T-Rex… it is more like similar to that of z-enemy.

The latest ccminer 1.1.23 djm34 fork for the MTP algorithm used by ZCoin (XZC) seems to be providing the best performance for more recent Nvidia mining GPUs such as GTX 1070 or 1080 Ti including the latest RTX 2080 Ti as well (faster than the recently updated T-Rex miner). Owners of GTX 1080-based GPUs with GDDR5X memory can use the OhGodAnETHlargementPill to get a bit of extra boost in performance. The miner is open source, though there is a built-in 0.25% fee (that can be turned off) in the officially compiled binaries for both Linux and Windows. Do note however that the official windows binary requires CUDA 10.1-compatible video driver, so you may need to update your mining rigs. Linux binaries are available for CUDA 0.2, 10 and 10.1. Stability wise the miner may not be perfect yet, so make sure you have a loop set when running it to have it restarted if it crashes. NiceHash mining does not seem to be supported for the moment.

Here comes CryptoDredge 0.20.1 and it brings along support for a new algorithm – Argon2d (NIM) algorithm (Dumb mode only), as well as number of fixes and additional performance improvements for MTP and Argon2d. The major version 0.20.0 did not get an official binary release, apparently due to some issues that were addressed in the 0.20.1 that was just made available for both Linux and Windows. The Linux version now also includes a watchdog feature…

Do note that the CryptoDredge miner supports only Nvidia GPUs and is a closed source software that comes with 1% built-in developer fee for all supported algorithms, however the dev fee is 2% currently only for MTP mining (Zcoin), there are binaries available for both Windows and Linux (CUDA 9.1/9.2/10.0).
