    How to mine using Intel HD Graphics?


  • | Tip Tobi97l

    @mamoonfarooq Tbh i don’t even know if there is a miner for Intel HD Graphics. But even if there would be one you shouldn’t use it if you have to pay for electricity. The electricity costs would be higher than the payout so you wouln’t gain any money. The intel gpu is very weak.

    Hello! Good work!

    So tell me, can I mine Feathercoin with Zeus Thunder miners?

    I use Minera on a Pi Raspberry. I am an old skool miner from 2014, in that time there was only scrypt and SHA256.

    But now? Do I have to install something for Neoscrypt? Maybe someone can tell something about that.

    So tell me, can I mine Feathercoin with Zeus Thunder miners?

    Simple answer: NO

    More exhaustive answer:
    Feathercoin is using the neoscrypt algorithm, which is ASIC resistant, what means Feathercoin can be mined with CPU or GPU(s) only.


  • Regular Member | Tip Davereplicant

    To add to that… it’s purposely by design.
    It’s supposed to be asic resistant.

    Mining for the masses rather than huge centralised farms in dodgy territories

    I get the error als devices disabled, cannot mine, I have asus croshair formula iv, and ATI RAdeon hd5450 gc


  • Regular Member | Tip ag2288

    Hello

    I am replying firstly so that (hopefully) I will be able to reply on other topics, but secondly I am also curious if there exist a topic or a web page with approximate hash rates for different GPU cards for feathercoin. I would like to get into mining but am not sure if I should go for a more expensive cards like 1060/70 or would 1050 be almost as good but for half the price?
    If I missed some rule or picked completely wrong section please excuse me and move/delete this post.

    Hi, I think that tpruvot miner doesn’t work anymore or something? I got this one to work tho.

    @Ghostlander Re: https://github.com/KlausT/ccminer/tree/windows/neoscrypt

    Looks like he did some fixes to neoscrypt that could be pushed to " head" https://github.com/tpruvot/ccminer

    Sorry for the hiatus all, busy last few months for me! I’ll be updating and refreshing the guide in the coming week. I’ll be reading through all of your comments to see what has been suggested!

    And thank you very much to all that kindly tipped, was very generous. I’ll be donating a portion to the Feathercoin donation wallet soon!

    Got miner started , getting coins. I had about 4000-8000 disappear before they were mature. I have all the info in debug log. When check the info, confirms everything happened, but does not show coins anywhere. I have sent other coins to an address, they not showing up. How many confirmations does it usually take before coins show up after being sent? At moment have nice amount waiting to mature. would like to not have them disappear, if I send them, or if shut down miner for what ever reason. Yes I backup wallet several times a day. When load up with one of the backups, starts me back at 0 coins like I have never mined any. Any help at getting me pointed in correct direction to look at solving my issues greatly appreciated.

    Respectively,
    Jobe 1592

    None!
    If the receiving wallet is fully in sync with the block chain, it shows the transactions as unconfirmed, but they show up as soon as they are detected on the block chain.

    What I suggest:

    • check, if your wallet is fully synchronized with the block chain. you can use explorer.feathercoincom or fsight.chain.tips and compare the block number and hash with the latest blocks your wallet has seen.
    • check, if you see any transactions belonging to your receiving wallet in the block chain. To do so enter the receiving address in the search field of the servers mentioned above.

    How long did it take you to mine the 4000-8000 coins?
    There are ~2 days between your last posts, what looks a very short time to mine 4000 coins…


  • | Tip Jobe1592

    I posted all at same time, one post should not been two days in-between. Showing 53 confirmations on first set of coins I sent.
    Here is info from debug log on first coins that disappeared

    It says wallet up to date but I do not see any of the usual blockchain data I should be getting when syncing


  • | Tip Jobe1592

    Can not find a way to execute rescan blockchain or command for sync check or sync progress, not sure what wording you prefer. Might just be me, but don’t see away to repair wallet. If I reload, loose all my coins.

  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    Reading through your logs, it seems that you are finding too many blocks per minute.

    Please provide the following:

    • number and type of GPU you are using to mine.
    • mining software you are using
    • local mining hash rate shown by your miner
    • command you use to start your miner

    To me it looks like you are mining with the wrong hashing algorithm.

    Die you configure your miner to use Neoscrypt?
