August 2022 Work Progress Report: Monero Arduous Fork, Ethereum ASIC Points


Node Updates

We at all times maintain our cryptocurrency nodes updated to supply our customers with the most effective mining expertise. That is the listing of an important node updates of August.

  • Ergo Protocol Reference Shopper 4.0.41
  • Beam Node Groovy Gluon 7.1.13105
  • Zcash v5.2.0-gd6d2093beb6
  • Monero v0.18.0.0-release

Monero Arduous Fork

An vital Monero (XMR) improve v15 befell on August thirteenth at block 2 688 888. The exhausting fork was initially scheduled for July nevertheless it was manually postponed due to the additional time required for the {hardware} pockets and multi-sig audit.


The transactions issued by outdated XMR nodes are usually not accepted by the community anymore. Be certain to improve your wallets to proceed utilizing Monero.

This improve elevated the community anonymity, lowered the transaction dimension by 5-7%, and improved the transaction propagation pace. Pockets synchronization turned nearly 50% sooner. You may discover the whole improve listing on Monero’s official weblog.

Ethereum DAG File Reached 5GB. ASIC Points

This month Ethereum DAG file dimension reached 5 GB. Sadly, all Innosilicon A10 gadgets don’t mine Ethereum since that occasion. That is brought on by an unknown {hardware}/software program problem. Evidently builders couldn’t (or don’t need to) resolve this problem within the nearest time. The Ethereum mining period ought to finish in the midst of September so it appears these gadgets received’t be capable to mine ETH anymore. Please observe that Innosilicon A11 machines weren’t affected by this downside.


Innosilicon lately launched the brand new firmware that enables Ethereum Traditional mining. ETC mining is at present the most suitable choice for all A10 customers. Learn extra in our submit Innosilicon A10 Stopped Mining Ethereum. Attainable Options.

Ethereum Merge

Ethereum cryptocurrency switches from POW to POS in the midst of September. This occasion known as the Merge and it ought to happen roughly on September 14th. Because the Merge occasion, no Ethereum mining could be doable.

We recommend all our miners swap to ETC, RVN, or ERGO cash. It’s nonetheless exhausting to say which ones could be essentially the most worthwhile coin when such an enormous hashpower which was occupied by ETH mining is launched. at all times helps you discover essentially the most worthwhile coin on your {hardware}.

After the Merge, we are going to course of one final payout to all of the Ethereum pool customers. The final BTC and NANO payout could also be delayed due to crypto alternate upkeep brought on by the Merge. You don’t have to request the ultimate payout or declare it anyhow. We can pay all of the unpaid balances which are over the minimal Ethereum pool payout threshold.

  • For ETH addresses 0.01 ETH;
  • For BTC addresses 0.005 ETH;
  • For NANO addresses 0.0005 ETH.

Please discover the detailed details about the Merge and the way the 2Miners Ethereum pool will function in September in our submit Finish of the Ethereum Mining: When? What to Mine Subsequent with GPU? Transition to POS Defined.

The right way to Set Ethereum Traditional Mining

Ethereum Traditional (ETC) is the closest cryptocurrency to Ethereum (ETH). The primary distinction is the minor change within the mining algorithm. It’s fairly simple to arrange ETC mining. Beneath you can discover the settings for standard mining software program Gminer, T-Rex, lolMiner. Should you mine with an ASIC gadget the firmware replace is almost definitely required.

Settings for Gminer
miner.exe --algo etchash --server and so --user YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS.RIG_ID

Settings for lolMiner
lolMiner.exe --algo ETCHASH --pool and so --user YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS.RIG_ID

Settings for T-Rex
t-rex.exe -a etchash -o stratum+tcp://and so -u YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS -w RIG_ID -p x

The pockets deal with for ETH and ETC is totally the identical. Typically (particularly for those who use the native pockets) it’s doable to make use of the identical deal with for each ETH and ETC simply by switching the completely different networks within the pockets settings. Nevertheless, that isn’t at all times doable and we extremely suggest you generate the brand new ETC deal with earlier than you begin mining to keep away from any inconveniences.

We welcome you to affix our miner neighborhood in Telegram or one of many native chats in Russian, Turkish, Spanish, and Chinese language.

Keep in mind to observe us on Twitter to get all of the information as quickly as doable.
