Thanks for your uploading. When I check my 'activity monitor', I noticed nheqminer takes up 300-340% out of my 4 cores which means CPU mining, not GPU mining. How can I use GPU on my Macbook Pro? Thanks in advance!

I installed this app and it does *not* use the GPU for mining :( - I have an AMD RX580 and I also tested with Nvidia and onboard graphics and this app only uses the CPU which is next to useless, unfortunately.

Are using a PC or Mac? Please see my latest zcash mining videos for better gpu support.

Hello. Thancks for the video. I'm using the Zcash Miner V4. Could I use my binance Zcash address? In the software "Enter your Zcash Address.

Hi, thanks for the video. But how can i authorize the worker? When I hit start, it always says host not found. Is there some steps I am missing? Thanks a lot if you could answer this question
Sheps (11 months ago)
Is this something I could have going on my macbook pro while I'm at work now in november 2017 or is it too late and too hard to mine these things now?

Matthew Halliday (10 months ago)
zec.suprnova.cc:2142 is the server code

How do you get your pool details?
Matthew Halliday (10 months ago)
zec.suprnova.cc:2142 is the server code
Sir max (1 year ago)
It should say on their website somewhere, there should be server and port for you to copy+paste

HI, this app is really good, but do you have any apps for imac can mine CPU & GPU ?
Chiel Dupont (1 year ago)
thanks for the tutorial. Only one question, while trying to mine, the miner says: Setting log level to 2. --> it is not mining yet. What should I do?

Hello. I've downloaded Zcash in my Mac. I've unziped and opened the Application. I've configurated the Zcash adress as the worker of the pool, put a password and the Server:port of the pool. WIth slushpool I didn't have success and with suprnova I couln't too. It says for both: resolve: Host not found (authoritative). And it doesn't start and stays 0 H/s and 0 Sol/s. Could you help me?

IMineBlocks What is the pool you using you need to put in under the video
Simon Oliver (1 year ago)

IMineBlocks (1 year ago)

It could be used but might use more electric than it returns in zcash profit.

with 4 tread i5 mac what is the estimate mining during 24 hours
ShowYour Song (1 year ago)
I tried it, and it looks like working... 4.88h/s and 9.31 sol/s in my macbook pro, but i have some questions. - the password, is it x? if i write a random password what it the difference, i mean it will work anyway? - what is threads for? - where the coins are going to? directly to my zcash adress? please help.. :S
IMineBlocks (1 year ago)
Create a worker at suprnova and use those details in the miner. Add your zcash address to the payouts section of suprnova
ShowYour Song (1 year ago)
im using my zcash adress from kraken, using x as password, and server:port zec.supernova.cc:2142, just wrote this, i'm not in any pool... so zcash is going to my kraken account? i just signed up to zec.suprnova.cc , how can i conect this account to my zcash miner? thanks a lot, i feel super lost.. first time mining
IMineBlocks (1 year ago)
The password should be the same as you set for your worker at the pool, some pools support your zcash address as your worker name and the password x. Threads is for number of cpu cores. Coins go to pool or zcash address depending on the pool your mining to.

Maybe you have mentioned in the video, but on what mac hardware is this video made?
Joep van Gassel (1 year ago)
ah ok, I have a macbook air and doing 7.50 Sol/s. Any idea what a new macbook pro (with touchbar) will do?
IMineBlocks (1 year ago)
The mac is about four years old and has a Intel i5 2.5 Ghz & 4GB Ram.
David thegreat (1 year ago)
nice take , but is this profitable and i guess one will need to link with suparnova right ,,thanks
Martin Wood (1 year ago)
Thanks for the tutorial - I'm up and running with ZCash miner and the Supernova pool. I'm using a later 2013 iMac with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M ( 4GB video memory ) and 16 GB of RAM. It's been going about 5 mins and upto 11.4 H/s, though on the Suprnova dashboard it says 18.40. Is it just using CPU or is it using GPU as well? It has 8 cores btw :)
panchi shah (1 year ago)
How can we get GPU also to be used.. I have iris pro 2gb grapgics card
IMineBlocks (1 year ago)
It will just be using your CPU.

U get double the hash rate from mining nicehash miner in a docker container

awesome, just woke up and posted it for you in his thread :) thank you

It is my understanding that 1 hash = 1 sol, so the display is inccorrect. It is one ITERATION that equals one SOL...hash and sol are interchangeable. Please lmk if you have solid info that states otherwise

I use kost's fork of nheqminer. He has a static build that can be used with pretty much any mac osx on Intel x64 CPUs. You should give it a try. It can be used in a terminal on osx, just like on any Linux. https://github.com/kost/nheqminer/releases

Hello, I'm going to buy a computer, which is the best to mine zcash
Omar G (2 years ago)
Buy a computer with an i5 or i7 cpu and a good graphics card like and RX 470 like he said...that way, you have a real PC you can use for day to day stuff or resell if you dont want to mine anymore
IMineBlocks (2 years ago)
I'd always recommend building rather than buying but if you must buy then choose a machine with a decent graphics card such as RX 470/480 or GTX 1070 if you prefer Nvidia GPUs
CC Gaming (2 years ago)
Why mines the cash anymore it has tanked in price so much
Cryptomined (2 years ago)
actually yesterday ETH become more profitable, but earlier today ZCash was more profitable... as people move away from ZCash the price is tending to go up, as people move from ETH to ZCash the price tends to go down... we are going to have to check everyday to see which is more profitable on whattomine
CC Gaming (2 years ago)
IMineBlocks ok I will try this miner on my Mac then
IMineBlocks (2 years ago)
Because more coins are being mined and being sold onto the markets.
FaVero (2 years ago)
its still more profitable than Ethereum by a tiny bit so its still worth it.
