Hey, are there still any mincoin miners out there going it solo?

 

I've just dipped my toes into mining with my paltry notebook hardware and wasn't sure if I actually got the setup right for solo mining when I went to try it out. I realize right now the difficulty level is too high to see much (or any) success as a soloer without great gear, but I was curious to figure it out, in case a future opportunity arose for me.

I used to solo MNC with 1400khash a few months ago when hardly anyone mined it.

 

I did OK (my power costs 24c per k/w, so I was at least breaking even).

 

I imagine solo'ing without a decent rig would be quite a challenge now - blocks are only 2 MNC each, and all that hash fighting for just 2880 coins a day!

Ah, I see.

 

Yeah, I got my CUDAminer running hashes to the local mincoin-qt, but I couldn't tell if it was really doing anything, since it didn't give me any feedback or indication of even futile attempted success from my few dozen khashes per second. :P

 

At least in a pool now I can tell that things are working!

Think of it this way.  At 10,000 Khash/s, it would still take ~ an hour to mine one block (2 MNC).

 

Solo mining isn't very practical for average miners.  If you've got 5 rigs with 3 7950s or 7990s each then you could do it, but I might stick with a pool even then.

Ah, yep yep, that puts it in perspective.

You'd have to have a very large farm to even consider mining solo.  Tens of thousands in equipment alone.
