Miner Claymore - one of the most famous cryptocurrency miners on video cards. But it looks like its development has been discontinued. We can only speculate about whether the developer will resume the project in the future.
As some of you may have noticed, the Claymore miner does not work when mining on epoch above # 384... The last update was December 4 November 2019, XNUMXwhen the version was released 15.0, and this version only allowed mining before era # 384.
What is the era?
DaggerHashimoto (Ethash) algorithm uses for mining video card memory resources... The DaggerHashimoto algorithm uses DAG file to load the video card. The DAG file grows every 30 blocksalso known as Epoch. To summarize, we can say that the size of the DAG file increases to increase the memory requirements of the video card for mining the algorithm.
What are the alternatives to the Claymore miner?
It depends on the performance of your system. More precisely, it depends on your graphics cards. First of all, it depends on whether you are using a video card AMD or NVIDIA... Here is a list of supported miners for AMD and NVIDIA:
Secondly, the performance of video cards may differ depending on the model. For example, the performance of the NVIDIA 2060 might be slightly better on the NBminer than on the Phoenix miner, while the performance of the NVIDIA 1060 6GB might be better on the Phoenix.
