Three L3+ = $33 a day

Post by Tofugitive » Wed Oct 18, 2017 12:04 pm

So I am averaging just $11 a day with each of my L3+ machines with Prohashing. From talking to friends and reading here, I should be getting about double this amount. I have set the machines to mine whatever is most profitable.

1. First problem - One machine always falls offline unless it's fixed to a specific coin. The other 2 machines don't have this issues. They are all configured the same way.

2. Friend has suggested I experiment with the d= field. Can anyone give me a tip on what numbers to try?

3. I'm based in Thailand - could that be contributing to my low ROI by any chance?

Thanks for any ideas. Was really excited to get the miners and now really frustrated to know I'm leaving half my returns on the table every day.

n=username (name each miner something different)
a=algo
d=difficulty

this is what I use
n=blh1976-1 a=scrypt d=131072

i am averaging around $20-22 per day with 1 miner

password field left blank or with n=whatevername only? I got n= and d=131072 for my L3+
Sounds about right, you should have double that atleast,looking at last days profits.
What is your efficiency? Historic hashrate average?

Sounds weird one goes offline? Have you tried using another multipool and in this case will it stay on hashing on that pool?
Sounds like something might be off with ur rig, maybe try looking up this error online or contact bitmain for suggestions, check if your running latest firmware. Maybe someone in here can give u better advice on the specific problem.

If your left with no choice but static mining with that one rig, could be worth if ur willing to gamble a bit to go solo on one of the easier coins, i've done so and somedays is rewarding, i try keep an eye on difficulty and switch back to pps if it goes up to much. or if pps is paying concistantly well.

Are you guys really getting $20/day from your L3+? I’ve only gotten that twice. Could you post your earnings?

10/17 17.76
10/16 21.73
10/15 19.62
10/14 23.01
10/13 19.05
10/12 18.45

There is no need for a=scrypt, you only need to use a= if a=x11

I am not using any special passwords either.

All i have in my password field is w=800 p=0.1163 which is only for the power consumption tab (which i need to change 800 to 8000)

Nice profits Aura89. What's the OC on that unit?
Pretty sure you arent getting those returns on a stock unit.

I don't have it OC'd, it's my first and only, currently, and bought it outside of bitmain (didn't exactly notice how easy it is to buy coins with USD, so went the ebay route) and really don't feel like potentially breaking it, even though from what i've read, as long as temps are fine they should be fine? But for now, until i get enough litecoin to purchase another at least, i will leave it as is lol

Another reason i don't want to mess with it :P currently i have had 1 HW error in the last 8 hours and again i have read as long as it's below a certain percentage it is fine, but don't want to risk it.

From the calculations i have done, they do seem to be just slightly above what it says i should be making on average, but i also notice that prohashing says i'm doing some nonsense like 600mh/s speed sometimes....

For instance, according to prohashing expected payout on 10/13/17, it was $0.0495 per MH, at 504MH (rated) that would be a payout of $24.94, whereas i got a payout of $25.67, not a huge difference, but a small one.

yeah must be nice, every day I am UNDER the average. I would think at some point I would be OVER, but then mine dont record phantom 100 hash I am not doing, mine report less than what I use even though only 4 errors in 8 hours.
