Note: This is NOT a sponsored post. Despite the unstable market situation, cryptocurrencies are steadily making their way to the public. Not only people now know what cryptocurrencies are, they are also starting to use them for a wide variety of real-life applications. However, with adoption come regulations.

CryptoNight V8 Hardfork is Live Now! – How to Mine the New Monero Today, Monero is conducting a planned hard fork to further secure the network from ASICs and to introduce some improvements to their existing system. The CryptonightV8 hardfork comes hand by hand with the Monero 0.13.0 “Beryllium Bullet” software upgrade that brings three main changes: Bulletproofs – a modification to transaction size that also reduces fees by approximately 80% and verification time. Monero has Bulletproofs running on Testnet for half a year or so already, but was so prudent not to switch them on for Mainnet until some independent and competent people checked the implementation.rbrunner7 - XMR Contributor CryptonightV8 (CryptonightV2) – The old CryptonightV7 PoW algorithm is replaced with a newer CryptonightV8 (also referred to as CryptonightV2).

Gigabyte RTX 2080 Ti Mining Performance Review

Gigabyte RTX 2080 Ti Mining Performance Review

Guides and Tutorials
Few days ago I have tested and reviewed in-depth the RTX 2080 card. The results ended up being pretty promising thanks to the its excelent MHs/W ratio. Today, I would like to share with you my findings regarding the RTX 2080Ti – will it be as good as the 2080? I would like to give a big shout out to the guys from Gigabyte for sending me an RTX 2080 Ti for testing purposes. Apparently, card manufacturers like the idea of miners buying their cards, which is indeed good for the mining community. This might also mean that Nvidia will probably release mining-oriented drivers and cards in the near future.

Gigabyte RTX 2080 Mining Performance Review – New Top GPU ?

Gigabyte RTX 2080 Mining Performance Review – New Top GPU ?

Guides and Tutorials
No, this is not clickbait. Yes, I am aware that there seems to be a consensus that the new RTX 2080 cards are not great for mining – many users have made their mining benchmarks public and the results were pretty underwhelming. There is a catch, though. Some days ago, I have finally received my Gigabyte RTX 2080 Windforce OC and I have done my own tests. My results were way better, which is why I am writing this article. Maybe I was lucky enough to find the sweet spot for undervolting and OC – most of the existing reviews are based on stock voltage and clock settings, and hence do not show the full mining potential of the card. Whatever is the case, I am impressed by the mining performance of…

How to Set Up Your Own Akroma Masternode

How to Set Up Your Own Akroma Masternode

Guides and Tutorials
Note: This is a sponsored post. I have been provided with an Akroma masternode to test this new platform out and review it. While this does not really make me biased towards the project, I thought it was important to clarify this before we move on. Akroma is one of the newest Ethereum forks that has implemented the masternode technology. Masternodes offer better decentralization, enhanced network security and reward users who are loyal to the coin. If you are new to this topic, to host a masternode basically means to lock a certain amount of coins in your wallet. Then, you would need to run the masternode software on a computer and have it connected to the network 24/7. Masternode mining is kind of the middle ground between PoS and…

How to Mine Akroma (AKA) with AMD and Nvidia GPU

How to Mine Akroma (AKA) with AMD and Nvidia GPU

Guides and Tutorials
Akroma (AKA) is one of the newest Ethereum forks (Ethash algo) that looks promising for GPU mining. It is not as popular as Ethereum, which is why the network hashrate is not as saturated, yet. If you want to know my thoughts on why Akroma might be a good coin to mine, check my full review of the coin. Requirements Just like any Ethash algo, Akroma can be mined with GPUs, you might want to add a couple of Acorns to your rig to lift the hashrate. You can also try the Ethlargement Pill for this algo if using Nvidia GTX 1080 or GTX 1080 Ti. While NVidia cards work with this algo, AMD ones proved to perform the best (at least from the standpoint of price/performance). Best mining hardware…

How to Mine Bitcoin Gold Equihash-BTG – Hard Fork Successful!

How to Mine Bitcoin Gold Equihash-BTG – Hard Fork Successful!

Guides and Tutorials
Today, Bitcoin Gold has finally forked! Originally based on the Equihash algo, Bitcoin Gold has transited to Equihash-BTG. The goal is to make Bitcoin Gold more ASIC-resistant – the new algorithm requires 17 times the amount of memory than Equihash, which means that any existent Equihash ASICs will not be able to mine Bitcoin Gold. According to the devs, this steep increase in memory requirements will also make it harder and pricier for ASIC manufacturers to create ASICs for Equihash-BTG in the future. Besides, the improved DAA will have a better response to hashrate swings. The fork has not spawned a new currency. We don’t have to exchange our Bitcoin Gold tokens or anything. The only thing we have to do is to upgrade our wallet and mining software. In…

Guides and Tutorials
GTX 1070 Ti GPUs are probably the best choice for someone who wants to start small. Beefy enough to give you a noticeable flow of cryptos yet affordable enough, the 1070 Ti GPU might the best choice in several situations. Its architecture and configuration is very similar to the GTX 1080 (GP 104 GPC family, amount of transistors, core config, L2 cache, core clock, etc) but not to the GTX 1080 Ti, which has more similarities with the NVIDIA TITAN X (GP 102 GPC family). In fact, the GTX 1070 Ti has more similarities with the GTX 1080 than with the GTX 1070, especially when it comes to mining performance. Past days I have been testing the GTX 1070 Ti SC Gaming by EVGA. I’ve assembled a small rig and…
