Recently my L3 has been performing incredibly well on mining rig rentals so I have been looking to the GPU side of my operation a little bit more. Currently I sold all my GPU rigs and I am left with two GTX 1070 to mine with. Alot of people use Nicehash as its very very simply but with Nicehash you aren’t always making the most of those GPU’s and getting a possibly more BTC
So the alternatives….
Firstly I looked into Awesome miner. I already use Awesome miner to monitor my L3 so it was really easy to set it up. I created a profit miner for my GTX 1070 and selected the algorithms I wanted to mine and entered my BTC address for payout. Then it was a simple case of right clicking the profit miner and start.
Now my only issue with Awesome miner is the payout in Dollars is a little optimistic at least, its always incredibly high and its very unlikely you will see a return on that scale. Secondly I probably wouldn’t use Blockmasters as a pool if you only have 1-2 cards as the payout is extremely high. Other than that once you get your head around the many menus within Awesome miner its a great program which can monitor your rigs with ease
Next I still wasn’t 100% with Awesome miner, mainly because it was the free version and I wanted a bit more freedom without paying. So I done some more research and found another program which is 100% free and claims to get more profit than Awesome Miner
NemosMiner is based on MPH miner which I did not really get on with but Nemos is much easier thanks to its friendly config setup. Once you have downloaded and unzipped Nemos miner you will be presented with an interface, ok its not as pretty as Awesome Miner but it does the job.
Once you have gone into config entered your BTC address and selected the pools you wish to mine at its simply a case of hitting the start button. Once started every 120 seconds it will check to make sure you are mining the most profitable algo across multiple pools. I have to say I have found this to be my most profitable program that I have used, it may not be as simple as Awesome miner but it is worth the setting up
Dont forget if you want to be really really lazy and looking for something which is the most simple then I would probably stick to Nicehash
