    Great a graph. Now show us your shiny rigs.

    Imagine a person sad enough to waste the time to fake a graph to show off for what ever reason on a niche forum. This is my cloud mining experiment my good pal.

    More information about your experiment please.

    I don't think he meant you were faking it but rather we would really like to see your Tesla cards :smile: I know I've personally been stalking your other thread for a bit and would love to see some pics of those in a rig! Consider it like...rig porn.

    @ecs87 Oh ok lol well here is a pic of 4 GPU's hard at it:



    Here is a little guide to do it yourself:

    Step 1: Launch an AWS p2.16xlarge instance with Ubuntu 16.04, at least 100GB storage & open ports 30303 for both TCP & UPD for your IP address.

    Step 2: SSH into the instance and paste this entire blob to install the necessary dependencies & drivers:
    wget http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1404/x86_64/cuda-repo-ubuntu1404_7.5-18_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1404_7.5-18_amd64.deb
    sudo apt-get -y install software-properties-common
    sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install git cmake libcryptopp-dev libleveldb-dev libjsoncpp-dev libjsonrpccpp-dev libboost-all-dev libgmp-dev libreadline-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev ocl-icd-libopencl1 opencl-headers mesa-common-dev libmicrohttpd-dev build-essential cuda -y
    git clone https://github.com/Genoil/cpp-ethereum/
    cd cpp-ethereum/
    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake -DBUNDLE=cudaminer ..
    make -j8
    Step 3: Install ethminer by pasting the following, type Y and hit enter:
    sudo apt-get install ethminer
    Ok you are ready to rock n roll, I am mining with nanopool with the following command (replace address, worker name & email address with your own):
    ethminer -G -F http://eth-eu1.nanopool.org:8888/youraddress.yourworkername/youremailaddress

    You will now be mining @ ~214Mh/s and hemorrhaging cash like there is no tomorrow! lol

    Oh and another thing I couldn't get to work was a miner with stratum support, I think with stratum you would get better results!
  • ecs87ecs87 Dekalb, ILMember Posts: 339 ✭✭✭
    On nanopool, connect to the 9999 port for stratum, so your command would change to this:

    ethminer -G -F http://eth-eu1.nanopool.org:9999/youraddress.yourworkername/youremailaddress

    The old getwork port is 8888. Reference: https://eth.nanopool.org/help

    Yeah it's installing a stratum supported miner that I'm having problems with but thanks anyway :)

    Oh...no luck with Claymore? He seems to have a Linux version of his miner: https://mega.nz/#F!O4YA2JgD!n2b4iSHQDruEsYUvTQP5_w
  • teslaguyteslaguy Member Posts: 20
    I actually haven't tried that one! I'll see if I can find any guides and report back :)
  • teslaguyteslaguy Member Posts: 20
    Ok I got Claymore to work, I will be back in 12 hours to report on returns and will also make a guide!
  • EMWEEEMWEE Member Posts: 60
    Awesome! Yeah i was curious about the project. Do you have another thread about this project? I hope ur boss pays those AWS bills ^^

    Update: Claymore is much better, getting a good bit more shares, see guide below.


    Step 1: Paste the below blob into your terminal.
    wget http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu1404/x86_64/cuda-repo-ubuntu1404_7.5-18_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i cuda-repo-ubuntu1404_7.5-18_amd64.deb
    sudo apt-get -y install software-properties-common
    sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install git cmake libcryptopp-dev libleveldb-dev libjsoncpp-dev libjsonrpccpp-dev libboost-all-dev libgmp-dev libreadline-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev ocl-icd-libopencl1 opencl-headers mesa-common-dev libmicrohttpd-dev build-essential cuda -y
    

    Step 2: Paste the below code into your terminal once the above is completed.
    wget https://github.com/nanopool/Claymore-Dual-Miner/releases/download/v9.6/Claymore.s.Dual.Ethereum.Decred_Siacoin_Lbry_Pascal.AMD.NVIDIA.GPU.Miner.v9.6.-.LINUX.tar.gz
    sudo tar -xvf Claymore.s.Dual.Ethereum.Decred_Siacoin_Lbry_Pascal.AMD.NVIDIA.GPU.Miner.v9.6.-.LINUX.tar.gz
    sudo chmod u+s ethdcrminer64
    sudo nano mine.sh
    

    Step 3: Paste the below into the file that has been opened with nano replacing wallet address, worker name and email with your own (this is for nanopool). Then press CTRL+X and then Y for yes and enter.
    #!/bin/sh
    export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100
    ./ethdcrminer64 -epool eth-eu1.nanopool.org:9999 -ewal YOURWALLET/YOURWORKER/YOUREMAIL -mode 1

    Step 4: Paste the below into your terminal.
    sudo chmod +x mine.sh
    sudo nano epools.txt
    

    Step 5: Delete the contents of the file that has just been opened with nano (press CTRL+K to erase a line) then paste the below into the file replacing wallet address, worker name and email with your own (this is for nanopool). Then press CTRL+X and then Y for yes and enter.
    POOL: eth-eu1.nanopool.org:9999, WALLET: YOURWALLET/YOURWORKER/YOUREMAIL, PSW: x, WORKER: , ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0
    POOL: eth-eu2.nanopool.org:9999, WALLET: YOURWALLET/YOURWORKER/YOUREMAIL, PSW: x, WORKER: , ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0
    POOL: eth-us-east1.nanopool.org:9999, WALLET: YOURWALLET/YOURWORKER/YOUREMAIL, PSW: x, WORKER: , ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0
    POOL: eth-us-west1.nanopool.org:9999, WALLET: YOURWALLET/YOURWORKER/YOUREMAIL, PSW: x, WORKER: , ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0
    POOL: eth-asia1.nanopool.org:9999, WALLET: YOURWALLET/YOURWORKER/YOUREMAIL, PSW: x, WORKER: , ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0

    Step 6: Now you are ready for mining! just paste the below command into your terminal and press enter.
    ./mine.sh
    

    Hopefully someone will find this useful :)

    Nice. But how are you getting 2Gh? I am only getting about 200+Mh...

    Using 10 instances
  • kentankentan Member Posts: 85
    Wow. @14.4 per hr for each instance, that's $144 per hour. When you say hemorrhaging cash, its no joke.

    Yeah the cost is 10 times the profit, you would be way better off just buying ETH.. But interesting experiment nonetheless :)
