easyMINE is a cryptocurrency mining software designed to help manage small and medium-sized mining operations. Here’s our easyMINE review.
What is easyMINE?
easyMINE is a software platform built to simplify the cryptocurrency mining process. It makes it easy to setup and manage your own mine in a straightforward and intuitive way. Whether you’re a complete newbie or a seasoned veteran, you can access an easy interface to start mining a variety of coins.
Obviously, running a cryptocurrency mine isn’t always easy. Sure, setting up the hardware and node is straightforward, but getting the rig to run well – and continue running well – takes some technical expertise. Mining operations require constant supervision, updates, adjustments, repairs, etc. Whether you have a single mining rig or several dozen, it can take a lot of work.
That’s why easyMINE presents itself as a better solution. The software makes all parts of mining – from the initial setup to everyday operation – automatic, simple, and hassle-free.
Obviously, all of this sounds good. However, we’ve seen other mining software make similar promises in the past. The difference with easyMINE is that it uses machine learning AI to continuously optimize your mining operation over time.
easyMINE’s beta version is expected to be released before the end of Q3 2017. The Poland-based developers also have an ICO planned for later this summer. Full release is expected sometime during 2018.
Let’s take a closer look at how easyMINE works.
How to Use easyMINE
Setting up easyMINE is designed to be as easy as possible:
- Step 1) Download the easyMINE OS package to a flash drive
- Step 2) Plug the flash drive into your mining machine
- Step 3) Boot it up
From this point forward, easyMINE will automatically configure all the hardware and software components of your rig for maximum stability, efficiency, and profitability. The software also allows you to remotely monitor your mining machine (or machines) while adjusting settings from the easyMINE dashboard. So even if you don’t have physical access to your hardware, you can adjust settings on the fly.
easyMINE advertises the following core features:
A simple, convenient tool to easily build and run your own mining machine with no specialized knowledge required.
Ready to Use:
A complete, immediately usable solution that requires no manual configuration. Your mining rig’s hardware and software are setup and optimized immediately.
Your mine will continue running in an optimized state thanks to the easyMINE intelligent, self-learning system.
easyMINE promises to increase the profitability of your mine using energy usage metrics. You can use these metrics, combined with your full operation history, to assess and increase profitability.
easyMINE promises to deliver increased hash rates, better cost-effectiveness, and improved stability thanks to AI-based optimization. The easyMINE AI constantly monitors and improves the performance of your mining system. It tracks all hardware and software metrics, then dynamically adjust settings to maintain peak efficiency.
Benefits of easyMINE
Ultimately, easyMINE promises to be everything you need to manage your mining operation. There are a lot of different elements at play here. Here are the specific benefits and features being offered with easyMINE:
Automatic Mining Equipment Setup
- Hardware configuration (BIOS selection and flashing, timing adjustments)
- Operating system configuration
- Mining software configuration
Comprehensive Mine Management Solution
- Detailed hardware monitoring (for entire machines and individual cards)
- Complete operating history and performance analysis
- Automated emergency response
- Automatic modification of operating parameters
- Malfunction notifications
- Profitability control and report generation
Continuous Performance Optimization
- Dynamic adjustment of hardware and software configuration
- Automatic selection of currencies to mine
- Automatic selection of mining pools to join
- Automatic wallet management
- Automatic cryptocurrency exchange and depositing
Basically, easyMINE performs all of the tasks that need to be done to operate an optimized, efficient mining rig. It’s a comprehensive software solution for miners.
How Does easyMINE Work?
easyMINE provides all of the above benefits using four core platforms, including their custom Linux operating system, their server, the easyMINE dashboard, and a mobile device for iOS and Android.
easyMINE OS (eMOS):
This is a custom Linux distribution that’s optimized specifically for cryptocurrency mining. It comes with all of the necessary system components, including GPU drivers, pre-installed mining software for multiple currencies, and a script package for hardware management and server communication. The OS was developed under an open source license.
This is the core of the easyMINE software. It controls the operation of each individual mining machine. This is where the AI-based performance optimizations come into play. AI adjusts hardware settings (like BIOS version, core voltage, clock frequency, etc.) as well as mining settings (currency, pool, etc.). All of the rig’s performance data is collected and made available to users.
This is the easyMINE administrative module. It provides an online configuration and management interface, accessible via web browser. It enables remote monitoring of – and control over – any mining machines connected to the easyMINE server. Essentially, this is a platform you can access through your web browser that gives you access to all of the settings and analytics you need to monitor your mining operation.
easyMINE will release a mobile app for iOS and Android that functions similar to the Dashboard. It allows for remote management and analysis of mining operations over your mobile device.
How Does easyMINE Apply Machine Learning AI?
Obviously, easyMINE isn’t the only mine management software available today. The distinguishing feature here is that easyMINE will manage your mine while also applying machine learning strategies to optimize mining operations.
These machine learning strategies are led by Dr. Andrzej Buller, the machine learning specialist employed as part of the development team. The developers have created a platform called the Autonomous Cryptocurrency Mining Controller, or ACMC.
ACMC uses a three-level semi-neural architecture. The architecture is based off of modern research into machine psychodynamics and fuzzy knowledge processing.
When Will easyMINE Be Released?
easyMINE has not yet been released. However, the developers have posted a roadmap on easyMINE.io. They caution that this roadmap is conservative, and they could release software before the intended release dates.
Q3 2017: Beta version of easyMINE OS with inventory management functions and a web-based dashboard for administration.
Q4 2017: Beta version of the automatic configuration utility.
Q1 2018: Beta version of the automatic mining functionality.
Q2 2018: Core-feature version of the eMOS operating system (general access, free of charge).
Q3/Q4 2018: Full-featured version of the eMOS system.
2019 and Forward: Further development of the platform based on user needs.
The easyMINE ICO
easyMINE will launch a token sale later this summer to finance further operations on the project. A total of 27,000,000 easYMINE tokens (EMT) based on the Ethereum Classic platform will be offered for sale during a 30 day ICO event taking place before the end of Q3 2017.
Who’s Behind easyMINE?
easyMINE describes their team as a diverse, international group, with the core of the team based in Poland (where they’re developing software at Polish publisher GRUPA IT).
The software project is led by Łukasz Żeligowski (CEO, Founder, and Software Engineer), Andrzej Belczak (CFO and Founder), Andrzej Buller, PhD (Machine Learning Expert), and Witold Turzański (CTO and Lead Software Developer).
Overall, easyMINE wants to be the world’s first intelligent mine management platform. We’ve seen plenty of other software that lets you manage your mine remotely – but easyMINE promises to manage your mine while also applying machine learning AI strategies to continuously optimize your mining operations over time. It’s a unique and ambitious concept that could change the way we mine cryptocurrencies.
The platform first appeared online in July 2017. The beta release of the software (including the easyMINE OS) is expected for Q3 2017.
