    So is the push here for AMD APU mining so it is more energy efficient and effective right out of the gate? Godavari here i come.

    Will Decred use the same ledger as bitcoin or will it be a fresh start.

    Some preliminary results:

    • 660 ti - 273.0Mh/s
    • 750 ti - 448.2Mh/s
    • 970 - 1.197Gh/s
    • 980 ti - 1.824Gh/s
    I plan on building out a mining section on the wiki this week.

    Looks sweet, I currently have a 970 and I kinda didn't expect that but it's just preliminary right?.

    I squeeze out about 618kH with Vapor X Radeon R9 280X for Litecoin mining. I think I'm looking in about same figures for Decred?

    It's not the same algorithm. Litecoin uses scrypt. This crypto will use blake-256

    The input size and rounds are both higher so the hash rate will definitely be lower than that. I don't have any of those cards to do a 1:1 comparison with but an R9 Nano did 2GH/s.

    Hi dev's.
    When PoW phase begin,there is the risk of pools build right after launch(with tons of user that will rent hash), or private mining rig got a chance to be rewarded for first?

    See, I'm not sure if I will be able to mine right away. I hope I can buy up a large stock of Decred to start selling on markets to get the interest up.

    I'm thinking of getting an R9 295x2 (since I do a bunch of graphics work anyway) for this purpose. Hopefully won't be completely overwhelmed by existing mining farms right away.

    It should work. It can't be overwhelmed since it's a new currency. Speeds are limited :)

    Not sure about that, there exist many GPU farms and FPGA farms that could quickly switch to the Blake 256 algorithm. Though no telling for sure until that happens.

    We have at first do everything work and then we have to sell Some decred on the mainstream people so that decred will get popular!

    Thanks for the info! It is very helpful.

    I have several Nvidia cards lying around, so I think they'll be put to good use.

    what do you guys think about mining contracts? maybe it's an option of starting without investing in a proper rig..
    (I still don't understand how you can make more money via a contract rather then buying coins directly, or vice versa why the mining guy is not selling coins instead of mining time)
    cheers

    i am expecting a boost within first 2 days, then maybe a drop and then a rise in the total network speeds. ( until something major pops up in the first few weeks );)
