This is the first Valentine’s day I am celebrating with K as husband and wife. I am very lucky to have her, and knowing that she is reading this, I just want to say that you are my person and I love you very much!
PiMAME is coming together. I am psyched to have a full weekend to just spend working on it.
The era of cpu/gpu mining scrypt based alt coins may be ending soon. The first scrypt capable ASICs are hitting the market. I recently purchased the DualMiner USB BTC/LTC miner. Even though it says litecoin, it can mine any scrypt coin, which is what Dogecoin is based on.
It was $113 shipped from California, and performs 70khs at around 3 watts. My r9 270 produced 350khs at ~150 watts and cost $200, and my Core i5 Haswell produced 79khs, cost $199, and uses ~100 watts.
I’m excited and nervous about the next generation of ASIC miners.
Have a good weekend all!
Pingback: Friday Post: Dogecoin USB Miner | Raspberry World
So will I be able to hook up a USB hub to a PI and run a couple of the DualMiner USB BTC/LTC miners? I would like to play in the BitCoin LiteCoin any kind of coin world just looking for a start.
At the moment, the DualMiner version of cgminer only works on Windows. I’m hoping that’s remedied soon.
Are you happy with the production you are receiving from this miner? Have you joined a guild or are you mining on your own? I am considering getting into mining dogecoin but most of what I read says it isn’t worth it if you try to do it on your own.
I’m happy with it so far. I usually mine on chunky.ms.
Is this also working on a raspberry pi?
Not at the moment.
you can run hundreds of Dualminer on Raspberry with no problem.
there is a special version of cgminer for that and a super complete tutorial to make it happen on the dualminer official website 😉
