Hello, I've been in communication with a user who was happy to finally released the instructions to produce your own multi-gpu. This is currently the only SAFE way to run multi-gpu as you can be sure nothing bad has been added.
First create the following file (use notepad or similar)
and call it fix_ming_gpu.1337
Download the following debugger: https://x64dbg.com
Use the x32 version when you have downloaded it.
Open ming_run.exe in x32dbg
Patch the file :
File -> Patch file... -> Import -> fix_ming_gpu.1337
0|00001497:00->01 -> this port 10240 to walton_gpu.exe
(sample code assembler: "push 0x2800" need to +1 "push 0x2801" 0x2801 this HEX value)
1|00001592:5D->5E -> this port 12125 to walton_gpu.exe
(sample code assembler: "push 0x2F5D" need to +1 "push 0x2F5E" 0x2F5E this HEX value)
2|00002908:00->01 -> this number to use gpu
(sample code assembler: "push 0x00" need to +1 "push 0x01" 0x01 this HEX value)
0x00 - use #1 gpu
0x01 - use #2 gpu and etc.....
I have not yet had the time to try this, but trust the source that it will work. Please use this thread to discuss and if anyone would like to produce a more fully comprehensive set of instructucions please do.
Again a big thank-you to the Anon!
Has anyone done any benchmarking with AMD cards? Im curious to find out if its worth while. Currently i'm running 1080ti's and getting 1 block a week for each card.
On another note, there was a previous discussion about nonce range hacks to increase mining performance. I.E. stopping your cards overlapping calculations. I was wondering if there is a way to limit the range as this could add an edge. Say if the range was limited to 5%, you would be more likely to find a block providing the solution was in the range. Could that work?
When I open GPU-Z to look into my AMDs it shows that it has 0 MHz core clock and memory clock. Is that normal?
And my GPU load jumps very often up and down (twice a second).
Hows your experience with AMD mining?
Edit: 6 RX580 on 6 PCs and running for days and no block.
I am trialing the new GUI miner with just 1 GPU. I have only used cli in the past. Does anyone know what the extra data is for the new miner. Is it specific to the machine you are mining on? Or would every wallet I am mining from have the same extra data if it was the same wallet version?
I'm running several rigs with a total of 6 1080tis and 3 1080s but I haven't been able mine anything for 2-3 days. I normally get an average of 2-3 blocks per day. Anyone else getting the same issues? They are all up to day and don't seem to have any errors.
Since a day or three my miners have been running 10-15 blocks ahead of the blocknumber showed on Waltonchain.net. Since this happened (3 days ago) I have not mined a single block which can be due to chance but is far below the average of the last 14-30 days. So I'm starting to wonder if this is an issue causing my miners to mine the wrong block. Can't verify the number on .pro since the stats are down there.
Is anybody else running into this?
I used to mine WTC with no problems, opening x6 instances, all instances would start sync and work fine in just a minute or so without any tricks. However I had stopped mining for about a month and wanted to mine again but it just won't sync. I tried deleting node1, then wtcmonitor trick. It was on for about 12 hours and I had restarted the loadPeers function like 3 times in that time and it still won't connect to enough peers and some GPUs are always behind... Pic: https://i.imgur.com/nNW2RHK.png
Has something changed with the latest wallet? I tried mining with the wallet and it connects to at least 2 peers instantly as soon as I open the wallet, and the node1 folder is synced too. I tried replacing files from the new wallet to my old "Walton-GPU-640" etc folders, but it didn't work either. Ugh
I have mined a total of 170 WTC. These will be paid out in ERC20 tokens correct? How do I receive these tokens if they WTC wallet miner does not support ERC20 tokens being transferred to it? Sorry if this is a nooby question
Hi everyone, putting up a new page here that will calculate estimated miner payoffs for phase 1 of the token swap. I used the GMN list on waltonchain.net and the recorded 5000 WTCT transactions on main net to calculate GMN/MN/Null wallet status. The calculator will only count blocks up to 200,000 so it will be accurate in case anyone want's to check back after.
Hope it helps someone besides myself :)
UPDATE: The calculation has been fixed to only count 3WTC per block mined only after a 5000 WTCT transaction.
Not sure what's going on but I haven't found a block since 8/17 when I was averaging 1-3 blocks a day. I was using CLI to mine but tested out switching to the latest wallet miner. No blocks using either method.
Combined with lower wtc price, I had to shut down the rigs for now. Anyone else experiencing lower than average mining rates lately?
Just noticed that with my 2x 1080ti I started getting on average 1 block a day, which is insane, comparing to 1 block every 3 days on 1.0.20 and earlier.
Upgrade if you haven’t yet; see, I don’t keep all mining secrets to myself :)
Looking for MN owners to walk me thru their stories. Really trying to understand those who have people mining to their address.
If you are an MN, when did you start? Do you mine? What is your strategy and how has it changed over time?
Also, what were the mechanics of becoming an MN? My understanding is you snapshotted a picture of a wallet like MEW and sent that to Walton, who verified you had 5000 WTC in there, then you were free to sell them all, if you wanted of course.
I am NOT an MN but mine to one. He pays out 2.5 WTC and gets 3 WTCT. That got me thinking... how is he paying me? How has that strategy changed over time?
His wallet that I mine to is not on the MN list, yet I can see he is getting 3 WTCT per block found. Yet, despite not being on the list, when I input his wallet into the Waltonchain explorer, it shows that he has over 9000WTCT, which based on the number of blocks mined, plus 5000, adds up perfectly to his number of WTCT. However, when I put his wallet address into etherscan, it’s empty and has no WTC transactions. I mention this bc if you put other MN wallet addresses into etherscan, it shows their WTC balance...
But here’s where I am stuck. When I imagine being a MN months ago with miners mining to me, I think about how I would act. At first, I’d be happy to pay out 2.5 WTC per block to receive 3 WTCT. That makes sense, particularly if you are bullish, but also if the coin is stable. However at some point, I’d be selling 3 WTC for every 2.5 that I paid out, and that would ultimately take the risk out of it. At least I think it does. Even if I had to have 5000 WTC at swap (not 5000 WTCT + WTC), I have the buffer of getting the 3 WTCT versus the 2.5 I am paying out. Anyway, over time, I would essentially be taking profit this way.
The problem is, I can’t see how else an MN wouldn’t have taken a complete bath on WTC, especially when paying out like $25-45 per block only to get paid back at some future price at an unknown date. I think after time, the MN owners would have adjusted their strategy.
The other option is that some MNs were directly given 5000 WTCT to help w Waltonchain. My MN is extremely helpful and patient, and he has done things for the entire community, so I could see that and get behind it. But then how was he paying out $25 or more for 1000 blocks for a promise that’s only worth $10 now?
I feel that I am missing something. Namely, where are the WTC coming from that are paying out the miners who are mining to MNs? Buying them on the open market to send them to the miners would have ended long ago, as the price action would render that decision unsustainable and risky. Is there a world where they aren’t coming from the 5000 WTC needed to get a MN?
So MNs, what’s your story? Were you a GMN before? Were you an MN with people mining to your address and still do that? Did you buy WTC get MN status then sell it all and now mine to it? Do those mined WTCT count toward your 5000 needed for the upcoming swap?
The price keeps dropping, mining difficulty is increasing, and still no word on token swap. Anyone thinking about shutting off their miners yet? How low (price) does this need to go before you would consider shutting off your miners? I'm getting close unfortunately.
