I have MSI R9 290X and on stock settings it gives 775H/s with Wolf's miner vs 790H/s with Claymore's miner with fee turned on. With -nofee 1 flag Claymore's miner shows 760H/s. Of course these numbers slightly vary.
I've been running a full node on a Geekbox for the past 6 months. This uses an RK3368 SOC with 8 Cortex-A53 cores and 2GB RAM. It's running Debian Jessie for ARM64. This little box is powerful enough to compile the entire bitmonero source tree natively (but it's still faster to cross-compile from a full-blown PC).
With the performance enhancements due to ...
For the node part, is the monero code compatible with ARM devices?
Yes, there are even binaries for ARMv7, which can be found here. Alternatively, you could compile from master. From the pull requests to master, it is clear that the Monero developers are maintaining ARM support.
Has anyone actually tried running a monero node in an ARM device?
Yes, a ...

Minting Money with Monero ... and CPU vector intrinsics

I woke up on May 28th, 2014, on vacation with my family in the middle of the desert, to find a ...
As someone who runs both Windows and Linux, I'd say that there is no bad choice but there certainly are better ones for specific use cases.
Casual use: Windows - no need to dual boot or learn a new OS. Mining, running a full node work fine.
Competitive mining: Linux for superior performance
Storing funds: Linux for superior security. (Still requires sane ...
There is a problem with amdgpu and Gnome on the kernel 4.4 (default kernel with ubuntu 16.04). So If you want to use Gnome, Install a new kernel before installing the drivers : example
Install the latest AMD APP SDK
Install required dependencies and tools: "sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev build-essential libjansson-dev"
Edit the ...
When a block is found, the block reward is divided among the miners, pro rata with the difficulty weighted shares they submitted for this block. This is done by the pool software's own accounting, not on chain.
On chain transactions only happen when a miner's pending balance reaches the payment threshold. At that point, some amount (based on the ...
That's a pretty broad question...
If you just want to run a full node, I would recommend some (small) VPS on Linux, since even 20GB of storage space will be enough and you will be able to run it with any amount of RAM will be OK for that purpose.
If you want to mine and involve your GPU, I would prefer Windows, since GPU drivers are usually better than on ...
sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/runminer.service
In there, paste this (everything between the lines):
Description=Monero GPU miner
After that, do
I tried on Lubuntu 16.04 with sgminer-gm, and the settings didn't seem to change anything as well. It is as if the card is just ignoring the OC settings.
It seems that for Linux, it's not so straight-forward to OC. I remember reading somewhere that you can do it by changing the GPU BIOS. Haven't done it myself yet so can't really give guidelines.
Here I ...
In shortest / simplest, just to illustrate the principle (may not be 100% accurate).
Take the hash of the last block
Build a block made of transactions which you collect from the network, while verifying that they're valid. You also include a coinbase transaction to yourself, called block reward. Other miners will include theirs.
Keep hashing (1. + 2.) ...
I know it's been a while since you asked this, but in case anyone else is wondering, you can easily install xmrig on MacOS by following the build instructions on Github.
First you need to install Xcode from the App Store, and then you have to install Homebrew.
Once you have those dependencies, you need to run the commands given on the xmrig OS X Build ...
Assumption: proof of work mining software for bitcoin / cryptocurrencies
Abbreviated version: The software runs a computer program also known as the proof of work algorithm. You tell the software how to connect to the network (mining pool / wallet / p2pool) so that it knows which computer program variables (transactions, difficulty level, blockchain height,...
What I'd like to do is have all these devices mine to a single address, without joining a pool. Is this possible?
You can use the start_mining <addr> monerod command for each miner and direct all mined XMR to a single address under your control.
Open up the xmr.conf file in a text editor such as notepad.
Edit the part which says "index": -1 as follows, changing the thread count from the default of 2 to 0:
A screenshot of an example .conf file is below, with the highlighted change.
For the RX 470 (specifically the Gigabyte G1 4GB version), I have found that both miners give very similar performance (~542 H/s for Claymore, ~535 H/s Wolf) on Windows 7 SP1.
On Linux, Claymore does not distribute a binary compatible with these cards, while Wolf's again gives ~535 H/s.
Given that Claymore's miner takes a 2.5% cut, it nets you 542 * 97.5% =...
The official download source is the best place to get Monero mining software. The Solaris operating system is not officially supported and is different from other OSes, though it shares some similarities with Linux.
In this thread at Reddit the person asks about SPARC CPUs and Solaris, but seems to give up quickly trying.
Q: Is there any chances to see it ...
I don't have a Ubuntu or these GPUs to test but based on this thread for the GPU driver, this Reddit thread about the CPU miner and the Github link, main steps would be:
extract the compressed file.
go to that folder and now run the installation script "sudo ./amdgpu-pro-install"
run "aticonfig --od-enable"
Custom ARM fork of cpuminer-multi.
Take a look at this answer that gets minergate-multi working on ARM, thanks to some genius forking it and fixing it.
The basic steps are as follows:
git clone https://github.com/tkinjo1985/cpuminer-multi.git
If you're on Ubuntu/Debian, of course make sure you install the necessary packages ...
It's possible and easy to compile and run Monero mining software on modern ARM 64 Bit board. I recommend you use xmrig to which arm support was added recently.
Here is an example of mining perfromance on Quad Core Cortex A53 (Amlogic S905X) TV-Box using Linux Ubuntu 17.10 distro.

Wolf0's CPU miner does not contain any code to support the fairly new daemon+tcp scheme, so cannot be used to solo mine.
However, you could setup your own private pool, and connect to it.If you disable payouts, this is as close to solo mining as you can get without being standard solo mining.
Why use one software when you can utilise Virtual machines on existing software that you are currently running.
I personally use oracle VM VirtualBox (no affiliation just my software that I use).
Its not to hard to get to grips with, just watch a few youtube videos and you will pick it up quickly if you are computer technically minded.
First of all, regarding this particular website, I can't say one way or another whether it's "legit" or not. Do as much research as necessary to determine whether it is. Considering you're not risking any coins in your wallet - that is, you're only risking not receiving the coins to which you are entitled from mining - the risk of loss is at least low.
