Based on the mining statistics offered by Hive OS community based mostly on the customers of their platform Kaspa (KAS) is the second hottest coin mined with already greater than 50% of the Ethereum Basic (ETC) miners and the third spot is for RavenCoin (RVN) with round 30% of the miners of ETC. The comparability here’s a bit unfair as there are ASIC miners out there, although most Ethash/ETChash ASICs will not be supported by HiveOS, so the stats is primarily based on GPU miners. Though ETC remains to be with very sturdy place for GPU miners partly because of the twin mining with Zilliqa (ZIL), its place for the highest mineable GPU crypto coin is slowly been overtaken by different cash such the newcomer KAS or the extra established RVN. Kaspa (KAS) can be dual-mined with ZIL already for some extra additional revenue and it’ll most likely not be lengthy till we see different cash similar to RVN additionally getting dual-mining with ZIL as effectively.
The mining statistics additionally reveals another attention-grabbing issues similar to Radeon RX 570 and RX 580 being the preferred AMD mining GPUs and GeForce RTX 3070 and GTX 1660 Tremendous being the preferred Nvidia GPUs. So far as ASIC miners are thought of, we see the highest taken by the Antminer L3+ Scrypt miner as it’s extra worthwhile than the nonetheless extremely popular Antminer S9 SHA256 ASIC miner for Bitcoin. Although you need to observe that each high positions are with the Hiveon firmware put in that brings numerous additional choices for tweaking the miners for a lot better effectivity in comparison with the inventory settings. To not point out that the L3+ and the S9 are currently getting used lots in DIY tasks for house heaters that additionally mine crypto to pay for among the electrical energy payments.
So far as the preferred mining software program used on the platform, it appears that evidently the chief is at present lolMiner, most likely as a result of it’s the finest performing and have wealthy KAS miner on the market in the meanwhile, adopted by Teamredminer and Nbminer on third place. Most Kaspa (KAS) miners are at present sticking to lolMiner, although GMiner is getting there efficiency sensible and currently form of main function sensible with the addition of dual-mining KAS with ZIL. ETC miners nonetheless use a wide range of miners which can be based mostly extra on private desire as there are numerous choices for mining ETC with very related efficiency and the identical goes for RVN as effectively.
