How to Mine Veil (x16rt) With Nvidia and AMD GPU – The New Big Always-On Privacy Coin

Guides and Tutorials
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. Most big cryptocurrencies are already being regulated in one country or another. I’m not going to delve into the moral part of the matter, however I do believe that we all have the right to keep our possessions private, if we chose to do so. Here’s where Veil can help. 1 What is Veil? Veil is a very promising cryptocurrency that combines the latest and most efficient privacy protocols and technologies to ensure the privacy of their users. While anonymous transactions are…

GMiner CUDA Equihash Miner v1.15 With BEAM (Equihash 150,5) Support

GMiner CUDA Equihash Miner v1.15 With BEAM (Equihash 150,5) Support

Ethereum, News, Tech
GMiner is a relatively new Nvidia CUDA miner with closed source and 2% development fee available for both Windows and Linux (64-bit only) compiled with CUDA 9 and supporting only more recent Nvidia GPUs with Compute capability 5.0+ (from the first generation of Nvidia Maxwell-based graphics processors). This miner is focused on supporting different variations of Equihash on Nvidia, so no wonder that it was one of the first to add BEAM support (Equihash 150,5) and is also currently the fastest one for that particular algorithm on Nvidia hardware. Aside from the newly added Equihash 150,5 support, with GMiner you also get support for Equihash 96,5 (MinexCoin), Equihash 144,5 (Bitcoin Gold, BitcoinZ, SnowGem, SafeCoin, Litecoin Z), Equihash 192,7 (Zero, Genesis) and Equihash 210,9 (Aion) and the performance on these is…

Nvidia Has Announced Their New Mid-Range GeForce RTX 2060 GPUs

Nvidia Has Announced Their New Mid-Range GeForce RTX 2060 GPUs

Ethereum, News, Tech
Nvidia has announced their new mid-range GPUs, namely the GeForce RTX 2060 as the fourth GPU in their new RTX range following the release for RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 that are already available on the market. Specifications wise the new RTX 2060 is something in between the GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 from the previous generation, along with the new Tensor and RT cores on top of the CUDA cores. As far as crypto mining goes however there is not much use of the new gaming technology built into the RTX graphics cards, but the new architecture does bring some extra performance as we have already seen with he earlier RTX models… especially with miners already getting optimizations for the 2000 series. It will be interesting…

New T-Rex 0.9.1 Nvidia Miner With X16RT (Veil) and SHA256Q (Pyrite) Support

New T-Rex 0.9.1 Nvidia Miner With X16RT (Veil) and SHA256Q (Pyrite) Support

News, Tech
The latest T-Rex Nvidia GPU miner version 0.9.1 adds support for two new algorithms – X16RT (Veil) and SHA256Q (Pyrite) and comes with some minor performance improvements for x16r, bcd, x22i and other x16-like algorithms. There are also multiple web monitoring page improvements introduced, along with a Linux watchdog as a windows one has been available for a while already. Everyone currently mining Veil that uses the new X16RT algorithm might be interested in switching to T-Rex 0.9.1 as it seems to be even faster compared to the recently released CryptoDredge 0.16.0 miner that also added support for X16RT. Do note that the T-Rex is a closed source miner with 1% development fee built-in. Also make sure you have a recent video driver installed (the latest for CUDA 10 support)…
