How to mine with GPU

11-01-2018
In my previous posts I have shown you how to mine with CPU: How do I mine with CentOS? How do I mine with OS X? Solve Ubuntu MinerGate problem Now I will show how to mine with your video card. If until now I used to mine with MinerGate for Linux, looks like their windows software has a big problem on the GPU mining side..so I searched and found this Claymore CryptoNote GPU Miner. After I tried to make a version of Claymore v10 or v11 to work, I let myself down and downloaded an older version, namely v9.6 BETA. If you succeed with newer versions ... it means that you are good, good for you! By the way the versions can be found here: https://mega.nz/#F!e4JVEAIJ!l1iF4z10fMyJzY5-LnyC2A I still will present version 9.6 BETA.  After you downloaded the files, put them where you want on the disk. Don't start yet! You will need a configuration file! This configuration file can be found on your MinerGate account? Don't have an MinerGate... Read more

UPcoin.com new exchange platform

07-01-2018
At the end of January a new exchange platform will be launched, the name is upcoin.com What does this new platform promise? ANTIDDOS Protection Although we are in 2018 ANTI DDOS protection is not a thing to brag, the equipments have evolved a lot, and this protection has become a basic thing...so I'm not impressed by this feature, even though the they can resist at 1000 Gbit/sec GLOBAL PRESENCE They say that they have servers located in 4 global regions to ensure fast server response. Ok, this is a good thing, but it is necessary for a promising platform like this. I personally worked with much smaller platforms and already had this infrastructure, again, it does not amaze me EXCHANGE TESTED BY HACKERS They mention that they have independent auditors and they are constantly test the system. In my opinion, this is nice and increases confidence. WE PROTECT OUR EMPLOYEES Uhm...ok.   Coins and... Read more

Ark Mobile Wallet Release

27-12-2017
One of my favorite coins is Ark? Why? Because it is an "all-in-one blockchain solution", and besides this main feature we can also list: Fast, Decentralized, Scalable, Collaborative, Bridging and Open Source. Perhaps the last three are not so important, but for me the most important was FAST and SCALABLE, and these two features are the most important for today's development and usage. The Ark team is moving fast with the launch of Mobile Wallets, the release includes wallets for Android and iOS operating systems. This main task had 4 subtasks: Initial Research & Developement Write new API wrapper UI/UX wireframe mockups Prototype testing/coding/final release At the moment all the work is done and made public! You can get the Android version from here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.ark.wallet.mobile The iOS version from here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ionic-view-test-ionic-apps/id1271789931?mt=8 As I saw at their an...
