Interestingly enough the new version 0.
Do note however that the performance increase may vary depending on the settings of your GPUs — TDP and clock settings, so feel free to try out this release майнинг report your results. Earlier this month we have told you about the upcoming Equihash fork called Bitcoin Gold BTGbut now just a couple of days before it actually happening майнинг are much more details than at the initial announcement. There are still quite a few things that are not clear yet, but the user interest in this fork is growing and that is no wonder when users holding BTC will be getting the equihash amount of BTG on October 25 when the fork is expected to happen.
Bitcoin Gold promises replay protection, meaning that antminer s5 от bitmain the fork occurs equihash two networks will continue to function independently form each other and transactions of coins in one of them will not affect the other one. One of the most interesting things about the new Bitcoin Gold BTG is that after forking from Bitcoin it will adopt a different mining майнинг and the chosen one is Equihash the one introduced by ZCashso the new coin will be mineable with video cards and not ASICs.
This is what is essentially getting the attention of the many GPU miner out there that do not have any or just equihash little ASIC mining power. This is essentially eliminating the large ASIC mining farms from able to mine the coin as there are currently no known ASIC miners available for the Equihash algorithm, though it still cannot do майнинг vega about any large GPU mining farms and such also exist similar to the big ASIC mining майнинг. There are still thing that are not clear about the fork such as what exchanges майнинг support it and will credit equihash users holding Bitcoin with BTG after the fork. Equihash biggest and most used Bitcoin exchanges however are still to come out with official statements regarding the fork, so the best thing is майнинг hold your Bitcoins in a local wallet where you have full control over the private key in order to be able to claim BTG coins after the fork.
The exchanges are probably waiting to decide based equihash user interest as well as to see if the fork will be successful and problem майнинг and come out with statements after that or their users may force them to. We equihash think it is unlikely that there will be any major optimizations of Equihash which would give the miners who know the optimization an advantage.
This is because the Generalized Birthday Problem has been widely studied by computer scientists and cryptographers, and Equihash is close to the Generalized Birthday Problem. The same way as before! The memory requirements for testnet mining are currently майнинг very low, because the implementation is not optimised.
So currently, equihash who was mining before can still mine. Once we have optimised the implementationwe will bump up the memory requirements to around 1 GB of RAMso you will need that much free memory per mining thread. The next step in our use of Equihash is to write an optimised implementation. Once that is done, we will reset the testnet with майнинг parameters.
Further down the track, our goal is to have the Equihash solver optimised for running on smartphones. We hope that this will greatly майнинг the decentralization of equihash — users could mine Zcash while their phones are plugged in and unused overnight!
