Tutorial for FPGA Miner AGPF SK1 Multi-algorithm Supported IMG N00

This tutorial is intended for the AGPF SK1 FPGA Miner which is a FPGA miner. The FPGA miner AGPF SK1 has a current firmware of 0.1.5 and supports mining of various algorithms such as Veo, Skunk and xdag. Subsequent firmware upgrades will support verus and vbk algorithms as well as other algorithms. Currently, all cryptocurrencies based on Veo, Skunk and xdag algorithms can be mined, such as Amoveo (VEO), Hyundai DAC (HDAC), Dagger (xdag) and so on.

Install AsicBoost Firmware with Ultra Detailed Graphic Instructions IMG 23

Bitmain has recently released its firmware for the popular Antminer S9 to enable what is called “overt AsicBoost”. What is AsicBoost? In short, AsicBoost is best described as a “mathematical trick”. Instead of taking a huge amount of computation, miners can use the technique to whittle down their choices of potential hashes that enable them to solve a puzzle and claim bitcoin’s rewards.

Tutorial for Antminer S17/S17 Pro the Newest 7nm Bitcoin Miner IMG 01

This tutorial is meant for the Antminer S17/S17 Pro which is a bitcoin miner manufactured by BITMAIN. The Antminer S17 series bitcoin miner is equipped with Bitmain’s second-generation 7nm chip BM1397. The energy efficiency ratio is as low as 39.5J/T in low power mode. The Antminer S17 series bitcoin miner is Bitmain’s most competitive SHA256 mining machine to date, supporting BTC, BCH and other SHA-256 crypto currencies.

We will take the submodel Antminer S17 Pro as an example to show settings which apply equally to Antminer S17.

What Are the Recently Frequently Mentioned Sidechain IMG 02

Bitcoin can only process about 7 transactions per second and such a speed makes it impossible to establish many related applications. So, the sidechain came into being to improve the scalability of bitcoin.

To transform the sidechain from concept to reality, the bitcoin core developers such as Adam Back and Matt Corallo released the white paper Enabling Blockchain Innovations with Pegged Sidechains, which clearly proposed the concept of sidechain and its protocol implementation for the first time.

What You Need to Know about Graphics Cards IMG N01

As the joint maintainers (mining workers) of Ethereum, AE, Beam, Grin and other cryptocurrencies, the GPU should be known as the most important hardware for the mining workers.

In daily community discussions, many beginners often discuss the performances of GPU based on different models. In most cases, the GPU models can precisely reflect their different performances. Based on the models, we can easily understand which GPU has more computing capability.

Now, we’d like to take Nvidia as the example to get started about what we can learn from the model numbers.
