  • Hash rate: 15 GH/s (Variation of ±5% is expected)
  • Power consumption: 1200W (at the wall, with Bitmain’s APW3 PSU, 93% efficiency, 25°C ambient temp).
  • Dimensions of the miner: 320*130*190mm
  • Hashing algorithm: X11

    Setting up a self maintaining miner (Windows GPU CPU miner)

    Problem I run a 125MH/s ETH GPU mining rig but I was having issues where it would restart intermittently and when it would come back online it would obviously stop mining and i would lose mining time because of it.
    Automatic restart Run your miner automatically on startup This is actually a very simple way to keep your miner in check so you don't encounter much or any down time. As an added bonus, it's very simple to set up.
    Automatic restart Search for "task scheduler" in your windows search bar and open it.

    Now select "Create Task..." from the right side panel. Give your task a name and check the "run with highest privileges" checkbox

    Today I'll be giving a bit of a look into BTC-Flow. It's a game based bitcoin faucet that has me pretty into it. No more of the jumping from site to site clicking your way through pop ups and other fun activities.

    The concept of the game is that you run a  company. At first, your company mines bitcoin and has a earning rate of 0.0000015 BTC/Min and your max capacity is 0.000012 BTC. Your part in running this company is getting the bitcoin from your company either before or after your max capacity is hit. You then need to click once your bitcoin capacity is reached to put that balance into your main bank. From here you basically repeat this as much as you'd like. If you really enjoy this, you can "level" your business with bitcoin to increase capacity and earning/min at any point.
