contest rules

  1. you need to use gminer from version 2.73 or higher
  2. for participation in contest, you need to run miner with "--contest_wallet ETH_WALLET" parameter, accordingly specifying a valid Eth wallet in the parameter (for example: --contest_wallet 0x5218597d48333d4a70cce91e810007b37e2937b5)
  3. condition for participation in contest is use of gminer on any algorithm and with any hashrate with --contest_wallet parameter for at least 168 hours
  4. each rig participating in contest has same weight regardless of hashrate (from laptop to rig with 20 cards)
  5. miner notifies contest server every hour of continuous work, server remembers number of hours worked and wallet for contest specified in --contest_wallet parameter
  6. user ID is set of hardware IDs, there is no point in running multiple copies of the miner in parallel on same rig, this does not increase chances of winning
  7. miner running on multiple rigs, even with same Eth wallet specified in the --contest_wallet parameter, increases chances of winning in proportion to number of rigs
  8. server stores number of hours worked, miner can be restarted without losing accumulated time
  9. in process of working with --contest_wallet parameter, current progress in fulfilling conditions of contest is displayed under statistics table (for example, Contest: 7/168)
  10. in order to become participant in contest and fulfill the necessary conditions, period of time equal to a week is given
  11. at end of contest, data about users (serial number, unique identifier, Eth wallet) who have fulfilled all conditions are uploaded to numbered list and placed in public access
  12. winners are selected from public list of participants using online roulette in live broadcast
  13. each of winners is sent certain amount of coins to Eth wallet specified in the --contest_wallet parameter
  14. each participant can win unlimited number of times
  15. use --user_id option to get unique id of rig
  16. list of participants is periodically published in "Gminer Talk" group ( https://t.me/gminer_talk )

  • Improved LHR performance, added two modes (--lhr_mode): 0 - energy save mode, 1 - maximal performance mode (default).
    Miner display LHR unlock percentage in statistics table (LHR row), you can adjust it by --lhr_tune option.
    Now --lhr_tune meaning GPU unlock percentage, for compatibility lhr tunes below 10 mapped to new default values.
    If LHR auto-tune (--lhr_autotune) enabled miner tries increase LHR unlock percentage while mining.
  • Improved RavenCoin performance, fixed floating hashrate
  • Display maximum difficulty of shares for each GPU

  • improved auto-tune for LHR GPUs, now miner speedup performance when GPU is steady
  • removed --lhr_tune1 / --lhr_tune2 parameters, use --lhr_tune to tune LHR GPUs (value range is -10 - 10, old parameters ignored for compatibility)
  • display current --lhr_tune value and current kernel in statistics table

  • partial LHR cards unlock without additional power consumption
  • use --lhr 1 to force enable unlock for RTX 3060 V1
  • use --lhr_tune1/lhr_tune2 to tune unlock parameters, positive values increase performance, negative values decrease probability of lock
  • miner requires latest Nvidia drivers(470+), to update Nvidia drivers under Hive OS run "nvidia-driver-update" command in terminal
