All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining spil well spil other alternative crypto currencies
Ethpool wasgoed the very first mining pool for mining Ethereum’s Ether coins, however it had some issues, wasgoed down for a while and then returned with a fresh concept – predictable solo mining pool. A predictable solo mining pool permits you to do pooled mining with a solo mining payment scheme, meaning that the miner who contributed the most work to the pool for each round will receive the total prize of the found block (or uncle) and his work account (credits) will be reset to his current credits minus the credits of the runner up miner. This simply means that depending on your available hashrate it may take more time to get your prize, but once you get it it will be a utter block prize. Evidently the downtime and the fresh concept along with the low exchange rate for Ethereum’s Ether coins lately are not doing Ethpool much good, but they have not stopped working on fresh things.
The latest addition is stratum support instead of the getwork that is typically used by the regular ethminer software. The introduction of stratum support requires users to use a special fork of ethminer that is called qtminer (source) that has bot developed by Ethpool and is ONLY supported by their mining pool for the uur. A while ago another pool – Dwarfpool, has introduced a Stratum proxy spil wij’ve mentioned earlier on the blog, but their proxy implementation is not spil good spil actually having a dedicated stratum protocol supported by the miner itself.
The directive line of qtminer is very similar to that of Ethminer, you can check the HELP.txt verkeersopstopping included te the Windows binary available for download below for the supported directions. Spil with ethminer, qtminer supports OpenCL mining on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs, there is no CUDA support available for Nvidia for the ogenblik, and you should not be getting much different spectacle ter terms of hashrate inbetween ethminer and qtminer (AMD movie cards still perform better than Nvidia ones). The actual difference is ter the protocol used to get shares and submit them which should result ter improved spectacle when you are using stratum instead of getwork due to better efficiency of the stratum communication protocol. Do note that you can still use Ethpool with ethminer and the getwork protocol if you are not pleased with the results you get from the fresh qtminer with stratum support.
The fresh qtminer stratum pool supports vardiff, so the difficulty will be automatically adjusted by the pool itself based on the hashrate you submit thus taking the guesswork and the need to find the optimal difficulty yourself. The result should be more efficient getting of fresh work and submitting of solved shares using onveranderlijk stratum connection to the server and thus more mined coins for the same period of time spil compared to using ethminer with getwork polling the server all the time. Looking at the logs of the qtminer and testing shortly the fresh stratum miner is showcasing that it works better than ethminer, make sure you permit a bit of time to get a good estimate on the current hashrate reported by the pool and estimated earning before drawing any conclusions. You should certainly give qtminer a attempt if you are presently mining for Ethereum’s (ETH) Ether coins on a pool with the traditional etminer, you might be pleasurably astonished by the improvement.
