    How long did it take for information to show? I'm mining there as well for the past hour and nothing is showing on the site.

    Something is wierd with awesomeminer since it shows $22/day with a 1080ti and 1070.

    What I'm saying is nothing is showing up. No hash rate, no confirms, no nothing. Little worried I'm mining for nothing.

    The only feedback I see on mph is coins. (What I pasted) Awesomeminer shows hashes and such though.

    An exchange is for exchanging, not for storing. You don't own your private key to your wallet with coinbase. If you're not day trading, you shouldn't have them sitting on an exchange.

    That said if its only a few hundred dollars worth of anything, no biggie leaving it there. But if its worth several thousand $ or more, you need to invest in something like a Ledger Nano S, or paper wallet, or any number of more secure options that you own the private key to.

    Man, mining profits are off the chain right now with Nicehash being down.

    One 1080TI is making $37 per day on LYR2Rv2 right now on the HashRefinery pool. o_O

    With these cards being so profitable - I took off my undervolt. Fire it up!

    No way that is going to end up being accurate. VTC saw an 86% drop in hash, you don't think all these NH miners are going to end up moving elsewhere?

    Well, it was about time i exercised my backup multipool switching scheme.

    Haven't done this much wiring up in years.

    Yuck. Reminds me of 2014

    Had my Vega based machine using the NH pool since it was the most profitable. There went .03BTC in earnings this week.

    The weird thing is that NiceHash Legacy Miner still indicates the correct balance in my wallet....

    Yeah, I don't get it.

    click start on what? I'm using claymore dual eth miner manually. Yes, cards are getting hot.

    Awesomeminer is fucking confusing. Mining is confusing.

    Ok when I signed up with Nicehash, they made me create a BTC wallet address...

    The one that you put in the Nicehash Miner itself... well I put that into Bitref and it shows 0.00524740 received and the same amount sent...

    Does that have anything to do with my balance? Is my main Nicehash Wallet balance in a separate wallet ID?

    Looks like $900 for me is gone using their great secure wallet :LOL:. Well actual lost is around $100 worth of electricity, wear and tear on some video cards and a little bit of time. Will just have to invest more time in a more secure method is all.

    From a cached NH page, and in reference to the "NH wallet" (internal):

    NiceHash wallet is not a blockchain wallet, but a regular wallet that uses certain defined Bitcoin address for deposits. If you check this Bitcoin address on blockchain, you will see that the transactions do not match the ones being executed in your NiceHash wallet. This is because we do not issue blockchain transactions for internal moves of coins (mining payments and order payments), because each blockchain transaction requires a certain amount of TX fee and several minutes or hours for confirmation, while our internal transactions are completely free and instant. Therefore, it does not make sense to use blockchain transactions for our internal accounting.

    No if you use that same password on other sites. They are saying in the absence of more information consider that set of credentials compromised.

    Yeah so the east-euro mullet trash that own Nicehash definitely had a nice float going with their "internal wallet" scheme. It was pretty obvious it was a fakecoin float since they charged less of a fee if you used it and it was instantaneous until you withdrew to a real external BTC address. It's roughly equivalent to how gift cards work and all the cash that is exchanged for gift cards is a float.

    Who knows if we'll ever know whether it was an inside job or legit hack. But the profitability increases due to difficulty drops today have been great since its taken all the kiddie miners off the grid.

    They won’t stay off long. There are alternate services to nicehash that are nearly as easy to use. I give it two or three days.

    Every couple of hours?
    Why would you do that? I pick a coin and mine it. If it dips a lot then I change to something else. It's not rocket science, using NiceHash is just lazyness, but it's your loss.

    Awesomeminer seems to be working well.

    Needed to drop in the miningpoolhub configuration but that was about it.

    Uses WhattoMine data to switch, so it very likely is more profitable than nicehash....

    I keep an eye on expected profits of different coins at what to mine. The most valuable coin changes constantly. A managed miner automatically pursues that current most valuable coin. I’ve found nicehash more profitable than whattomine stats, and whattomine pretty much always has nicehash in the top 25% of profitable mining opportunities.

    Before nicehash was killled - awesomeminer was less profitable when I had checked. They are more profitable now because a big hunk of hashing power dropped off the market when nicehash went offline. Mining profits will return to levels we saw a few days back most likely in the next few days as people choose alternatives to nicehash or even if nicehash comes back online.

    Yup, all of this. When I mined for a bit with my GTX 1080, it switched algos probably 3-4 times a day.

    Running multi pool miner on miningpoolhub and i like it so far. I can set a much lower payout threshold and payout in ltc or eth to reduce fee's. Glad I didn't switch to a nicehash wallet but sad because I was literally a day from payout.

    That's me. I fucked with miners all day yesterday and am still not up and running. About to give the fuck up. There is zero good information online at these pools. The shit that's there either barely or doesn't work at all. Why even have anything if it's wrong information? And no forums for help. And when you ask people for specifics they're just like "oh, just point your miners at such and such and start mining"...well, no shit sherlock, but how?
