For those of you who want to mine X11 or X13-based altcoins like Darkcoin, X11coin, Boostcoin, Digitcoin, Marucoin, etc…etc…, here’s an updated image with the latest modded sgminer (the one with higher hashrates).  This is built on top of my previous Scrypt/Scrypt-N image, so it’s all straight-forward if you have been using it so far.

With this new image, you will be able to do 3Mh/s with X11 and 2.5Mh/s with X13 on R9 280X graphic card.  (And more or less depending on which graphic card you use.  E.g. R9 290X will obviously have higher hashrates.

Optimized Scrypt and Scrypt-N Ubuntu Image for Litecoin, Dogecoin, and Vertcoin!

optimized-scryptn-ubuntu-flash-image-1

I know many of you have asked me for Vertcoin and since you do need some knowledge of Linux and compiling, I thought it would be easier if you can just download my optimized USB Ubuntu image that contains a compiled Vertcoin with optimized settings for R9 280X, doing 700Kh/s for Scrypt and 327Kh/s for Scrypt-N. (Scrypt-N gets around 40-45% of hashrate compared to Scrypt)

I’ve also included my original Litecoin cgminer, so you can easily switch between the two.

If you are not familiar with Ubuntu, I highly recommend watching the video tutorial above along with the

How to Make Gridseed Blade Mining Rig! [Pre-Built CGMiner]

howto-make-gridseed-blade-mining-rig-1 For this month’s Rig of the Month, check out the latest ASIC Scrypt miner, Gridseed Blade Mining Rig!

Based on 80 Gridseed chips, Gridseed Blades are ASIC Scrypt miners capable of 5.6Mh/s at only 100 watts of power.  These currently (as of April 30th 2014) cost around $1500-1600 with ROI of around 6 months at $15/day. (You can use CoinWarz.com to see profit at the moment.)

In other words, these are the best rigs to use to mine Scrypt coins such as Litecoins and Dogecoins “right now”.  My graphic card rigs a

How to Make Stackable Tower Gridseed Rig with Raspberry Pi! [Pre-built CGminer]

howto-make-stackable-tower-gridseed-rig-1

For those of you who are thinking about making your own Gridseed rig for Scrypt mining (for Litecoin, Dogecoin, etc…etc…), you may want to make them into stackable “towers”.

Initially, I’ve built my Gridseed rig using a standard motherboard and Ubuntu linux with a custom frame but I realize this is very time-consuming and tedious.  Besides that, when you have multiple Gridseeds running at the same time, the fans on them get pretty loud.  It was loud enough where the bass
