Are there any other crypto miners involved with ENS DAO? Or do you just want to ask questions about crypto mining?
I thought it would be nice to have a space to discuss mining, answer questions to anyone curious about it, share resources, and network with other miners.
I have been running a GPU mining rig (techincally 2 and a laptop ) since about February, and slowly trading for graphics cards as I was able to find them. Lots of phones calls and time driving to other cities. That was actually how I got really pulled into “web 3” to begin with, excluding bitcoin. Almost all of the projects that I support and coins that I hold were acquired by first mining my own eth and then trading directly for them.
My current set up is:
- 6 x RTX 3060 Ti (non-LHR)
- 1 x RTX 3080 (non-LHR)
- 1 x GTX 1060 6 GB (my laptop for the lulz)
The whole set up usually averages about 500 MH/s hashrate, and I intentionally built it to be as power efficient as possible, so the whole thing draws less than one kilowatt. I run all of the 3060 Ti’s undervoltage too, which keeps temperatures well under control, even below what they would hit while gaming.
With ETH’s switch to proof-of-stake always on the horizon and the constantly growing mining difficulty of the Ethereum network, I may be downsizing my set-up and/or switching to different currencies soon. I have also experimented with mining Ravencoin, but the temperatures are much harder to keep down using their hashing algorithm.
Recently I have been keeping an eye on Raptoreum and may start dual mining (CPU & GPU) it and something else soon. Other various details: The mining pool I use is Ethermine and mining software is T-Rex miner, although I will probably be switching to HiveOS soon. I have several great resources and analytic tools that I would be happy to share if anyone is interested.
