Bitcoin mining is joy again!
Yes, Bitcoin mining is joy again! Wij would like to share our practices with a good huis miner – the GekkoScience Compac BM1384 Stickminer.
Mining has traditionally bot te the domain of huis users, supporting the decentralized nature of Bitcoin and other digital cryptocurrencies. Unluckily the rising Bitcoin Difficulty and superior mining farms took mining away from huis miners. However, there are still some fine Bitcoin mining hardware products out there that can bring you joy and even a chance to profit with Bitcoin mining.
GekkoScience Compac BM1384 Stickminer is a result of private project of bitcointalk users “novak” and “sidehack”. If features a Bitmain BM1384 (same chip spil on the AntMiner S5) and a fully adjustable regulator vormgeving that gives you a core voltage range of 550mV to 800mV without requiring “pencil modding” or soldering abilities. It’s by no means the most expensive stickminer available, but it is both the fastest and most efficient. Ter fact, it’s actually the 2nd most power-efficient publicly-sold bitcoin miner ter the world at this time (because the AntMiner S7 just scarcely hits it, however wij could hardly say that AntMiner S7 is a huis miner).
So, what can you do with the Compas? Well, basically you have at least two options.
A) You can point it to a regular SHA256 pool, for example NiceHash SHA256 pool. The USB slams are performing indeed well, and can be overclocked to achieve various hashing speeds. Here are two Compacs, together with some thicker brothers te our laboratorium:
bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://sha256.eu.nicehash.com:3334/#xnsub -u YOUR-BITCOIN-ADDRESS.Compac1 -p d=128 –set compac:clock=x0983
B) Since thesis miners are slow compared to regular SHA256 Bitcoin miners, you will hardly earn any profit by regular mining. However, you can also point this miner to our solo mining pool – and play some blockchain lottery. This will give you a chance to win a utter Bitcoin block. Now, if this isn’t joy or what ,) ? Here are two Compacs, hashing te our SHA256 solo mining pool:
bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.solo.nicehash.com:3334 -u YOUR-BITCOIN-ADDRESS.Compac1 -p diff_64 –set compac:clock=x0983
Wij would also like to share some tips on how to get embarked. You can order thesis miners from the authors or from bitshopper.den for purchases te Europe. Make sure you also get a welgevoeglijk and powerfull USB hub – especially if you are planing to oveclock the miner. The software can be downloaded here for windows, or build from source ter Linux / MAC:

Wij wish you mining total of joy and profits. Keep on hashing! ,)
