Using the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU For RandomX Crypto Mining

We already know that AMD’s Ryzen 9 3900x is doing great for mining based on numerous users that have posted benchmark results giving 12 KH/s or more in terms of hashrate even at stock settings and over 13000 H/s are possible with overclock. So performance wise thing look great for the 3900X CPU, however there are some specifics that are not reflected in these benchmarks and that some users might not be aware of. Most of these results are on a high-end gaming or enthusiasts PCs that are with the top motherboards, high-frequency memory and a single or dual

New GMiner v1.69 With BFC Algorithm Support for Nvidia and AMD GPUs

The latest two version of GMiner 1.69 Nvidia and AMD miner has added support for the BFC algorithm used by the Chinese Bitfree Cash (BFC) project. BFC s apparently based on Cuckaroo29 algorithm and the project does not seem to be that popular yet among English speaking users, so you might want to check it out. Have in mind that the dev fee for the BFC algorithm is currently set to 3% instead of the regular 2% for all other supported algorithms by the miner. Also finding a pool in English might currently be an issue, so you can

Pigeoncoin (PGN) Forking to X21S Algorithm on October 15th

Pigeoncoin (PGN) is one of the first forks of Raven, but instead of using directly X16R it introduced a modified version called X16S. Well, it seems that PGN is changing their PoW mining algorithm form X16S to X21S, another algorithm that has been available for a while introduced by Ritocoin (RITO) which is another fork from Ravencoin (RVN). The switch from X16S to X21S will occur on the 15th of October 2019 at 00:00:00 GMT. We could not find a specific reason for the algorithm change, we would understand if it was using X16R and wanted to get away

New SRBMiner-MULTI CPU and AMD GPU Miner 0.1.1 Beta

The author of the popular SRBminer CryptoNight AMD GPU miner has just updated his new mining software called SRBMiner-MULTI CPU and AMD GPU Miner to version 0.1.1 Betta adding support for a few new algorithms and some bug fixes. The new miner is targeted at algorithms for CPU mining as well as some CPU and GPU ones for more recent AMD-based video cards (R9 2xx series and newer)… other than the CN-based algorithms that his other AMD GPU miner supports. The new algorithms include: yespowerltncg, yespowersugar, yespowerurx, yespower2b, eaglesong (nervos-ckb) algorithms and there is also added support for SHA

BLOC GUI Miner for Easy Mining of CryptoNight Coins with CPU and GPU

The BLOC GUI Miner is a beautiful, easy to use, Graphical User Interface (GUI) for mining some of the more popular cryptocurrencies based on Cryptonote vailable for Linux, Windows and MacOS. The project is being developed by Bloc.Money (BLOC) (CryptoNight Heavy-Haven algorithm), so by default it starts by offering you to create a BLOC wallet if you do not yet have one, or mine BLOC if you do, but you also have another option to mine for other supported CryptoNote/CryptoNight crypto coins. Besides BLOC, you can also mine: RYO (RYO), Haven (XHV), Monero (XMR), Conceal Network (CCX), Sumokoin (SUMO),

AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 16-Core 32-Thread CPU for Mining RandomX

We already know that the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X CPU is doing great for CPU mining with its 12 cores and 24 threads for the the new RandomX algorithm (RandomX CPU Benchmarks), so the demand for that particular processor is pretty high and there are shortages and price speculations. Not to mention that it is still pretty had to find, regardless of the price, in many places as it is doing great not only for mining… it is considered to be one of the best CPUs at the moment for PC enthusiasts and gamers as well. Next month we
