The former SUQA project, now SINOVATE (SIN), is about to hardfork in a couple of hours with numerous changes going into effect at block 170,000 that should be reached in a couple of hours time. With the hardfork there will be a new algorithm going into effect, switching from the old X22i to the new X25x algorithm for mining. The new algorithm is heavier and more memory intensive, so the hashrate you will be getting after the fork is gong to be lower with X25x compared to what you would be getting with X22i. There are already miners available
Claymore has updated his dual Ethereum plus DCR, SC, LBRY, PASC, Blake2s and Keccak AMD and Nvidia GPU miner to version 14.6 bringing some additional performance along with some new features, improvements and bug fixes. The latest version extends the rxboost support to older AMD GPUs, so it will now work not only on the newer RX (Polaris) GPUs, but also on the older Hawaii, Tonga, Tahiti, Pitcairn GPUs as well as supports for all AMD drivers. The rxboost option enables additional performance boost of up to 5% by applying some additional memory settings (separate from the strap option
The latest WildRig Multi Beta AMD GPU miner is now ready for the upcoming SUQA/SIN fork as well with support for the new X25x mining algorithm that will be used by the project after the fork. NVIDIA miners can go for the already available T-Rex 011.0 miner with support for the X25 algo. The fork was supposed to happen on block 165,000 a couple of days ago, but it has been postponed for block 170,000, so a few more days until it hits. There are already a couple of mining pools running on the testnet with the X25x algo
NiceHash has made their new platform available in public beta for everyone interested to check and try it out before it goes out of testing and replaces the currently available platform for selling and buying crypto hashrate. The most notable new features are the new Rig Manager, a new Linux-based NiceHashOS and an integrated cryptocurrency exchange right into the platform itself. Do note that for the duration of the beta period, the entire platform runs on testnet, so you will get paid in TBTC and not in real BTC. Testnet coins don’t have any real value and exist only
The latest TT-Miner Version 2.2.4 comes with three new mining algorithms supported as well as some bug fixes to help improve the miner stability. The newly added algorithms are PROGPOWH, a modified ProgPoW Rev.0.9.2 for the HYDNORA project, PROGPOW092 ProgPoW Rev.0.9.2 for SUM (Solidum Network) as well as TETHASHV1 for the TEO project. If you are interested in any of the newly added algorithms you might want to check out the projects that have implemented them as well.
TT-Miner supports ProgPOW, ProgPOWH, ProgPOW092, TETHASHV1, PROGPOWZ, Ethash, UBQhash, MTP, LYRA2REV3 and Myriad-Groestl algorithms on Nvidia GPUs and is available for
