Looks to good to be true at the moment. I wouldn't expect these to at least Q3 2014 as ASICs never delivery on time.

Potcoin's been on a roll lately. Up to 3000 or more Satoshi per POT whereas it usually stays in the 1,000's. Too bad my current mined POT hasn't met close to its automatic payout. Looks like I'll go back with the plan to dump half of my mined stuff and hold the rest for these kinds of days.

Followed by a very low hash rate and work restarts?

Any ideas?

My code:

Code:
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1

vertminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://ool-457dfad7.dyn.optonline.net:9171 -u VpFtgdPD57wAZdYFQ89KKEs4fypEFUp2r3 -p x -I 20 -g 2 -w 256 --thread-concurrency 19712

Pool thing is odd....it seems to connect afterwards. What does your .conf file look like?

If you look at the settings running in vertminer vs what you entered into your bat you will see they are not the same. You definitely specified an intensity of more than 12...yet that shows in your miner window.

I would edit the vertminer .conf file instead...just use the bat to set your environment variables and call vertminer.

What card do you have? I will tell you right now that a high thread concurrency like that, combined with an intensity of 20 will probably fail to run properly. My 7950 is very picky with vertminer, and it only likes a thread concurrency of 14336 along with an intensity of 18.

theKev's vertminer gives you the ability to change gpu-threads to 2 rather than 1 for most cards and still max out your hash rate due to the rawIntensity setting. This allows you to finetune your cards for way more performance that with the original vertminer. For example with my R9 270, optimal settings were 2 GPU threads, raw intensity 5120 (between intensity 12 and 13), and 6336 thread concurrency. Take a look at the rawintensity list in this post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=466867.0

Also, I'd take a peak over at http://www.verters.com/vertcoin-hardware-list for some settings to try out.

This. Although I'm not technically 'invested' (as in fiat-to-crypto investment) in cryptos so I don't worry about that aspect... I do look at it almost the same as fiat... it's the market itself and general sentiment that determines it's value (or lack thereof) so it is essentially fiat. Although I will never say for sure in writing - some of my BTC may have found it's way to metals... or not. wink.gif

The biggest problem I have with those cards is again a trust issue... If I'm supplying a website with my public and private keys... then, regardless of whether their made out of aluminum or for that matter titanium... they're inherently less secure than a piece of paper no one but me has ever seen that was generated and printed offline on a live-linux CD boot. On the other hand, if I purchase the 'public only' version... then what use is it really? To hand out to people? I could simply have the QR printed on a t-shirt and walk around town with it... who knows, I might even get a tip randomly. biggrin.gif

Even if they can 'prove' (not sure how, but a weekly audit by a known security analyst would be a start) that they don't store the keys after producing the cards, and that the person shipping the cards out is a blind nun... I still wouldn't consider that a good place for storing anything over a BTC or so... not to mention that with a paper wallet - I can make a photo copy myself, put it in an envelope, and store it in a bank vault off-site. More secure and at a cost of less than 10 minutes labor and .02 worth of paper. biggrin.gif

Also i will bet that someone creates a new coin based on another algorithm a while after the scrypt ASICS have been on the market.

Zoomhash.com sells them currently and helixminers.com will have them shortly. I have a friend that already has some and he gets 400KHs on his. However, they are still in their infancy and not quite up to par with GPU's. That being said, I did a quick comparison and found that if I was able to do 400KHs on each one, then because of the lower wattage requirement, I would only need 9600KHs to give me the same return that my 11200KHs gives me today. The next generation will be interesting to see what they can deliver in KHs per watt.

And what would you do with them if the market collapsed all of the sudden? That's why I think ASICs are too much of a risk. Sure they get great rewards but with the way the market currently is, I wouldn't touch one with a ten foot poll.

Thanks for the link though, +rep!

This is what my conf is and I'm currently running an HIS 7950:

                "user" : "USERNAME",
                "pass" : "PASSWORD"
        }

On the graphics card side of things, some of us are also eyeing what Maxwell can bring to the table once Nvidia starts using it for its flagship cards. If the efficiency isn't too bad at scaling to more powerful GPUs then holy hell would we have a great new source of cards to pick from.

Go over here if you want to learn about them: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=494625.20

I have a friend with 12 of them currently getting 400KHs at a 850 frequency. They are real, whether or not they will be worth anything if the market crashes is a different story. The main advantage of these is they can due scrypt and SHA at the same time, but power usage goes up to 1200 watts for 10 of them.

Here is the thing, if you think we are headed for a correction as some, including myself, believe, then Maxwell is a moot point as it won't matter. However, as I have stated before, if a coin like Zerocoin hits the market that is completely anonymous, then you will see a fresh supply of cash hit the market from those that want to hide their transactions which is what cryptocurrency needs and is not currently getting. Of course, if Bitcoin all of a sudden got listed on Wall St, that would give the market the same pump in cash it needs too.
