MinerGate Officially Releases Final Version of its Highly Anticipated ‘xFast Miner’
Earlier this week, a spokesperson for MinerGate, one of the world’s top-tier mining pool platforms, announced to its 3.5 million strong user base that the firm was all set to release the final iteration of its much anticipated ‘xFast Miner’ engine.
According to the CEO of MinerGate, Claude Lecomte, this latest release has been devised in order to increase the overall functionality and accessibility of the platform. Additionally, it is also worth noting that MinerGate currently provides miners with a quality merged-mining service, that is able to deliver a 99.97 percent uptime (along with a host of other smart mining features).
So What’s New With xFast Miner?
As per a press release available on the official MinerGate website, the latest version of xFast Miner has been bolstered with new technological algorithms that allow the platform to increase its native mining speed for a total of 11 supported cryptocurrencies. Some of these currencies include BTC, BTG, ZEC, XMR.
Other key aspects of the latest version include:
- Performance improvement of up to 20 percent in terms of the platform’s overall hash rate.
- It is compatible with nearly all of the major GPUs available in the market today.
- The update allows for extended hardware support, thereby making the platform more diverse in its overall usability.
- The new miner comes with the ability to deploy both command line and general user versions of the native interface.
In regards to his company’s latest release, Lecomte was noted as saying:
“Now MinerGate provides users with some of the fastest hash rates among collective mining pools, with an industry-best hash rate of 283 for Monero among other standouts,”
Lastly, it is also worth noting that the beta release of xFast Miner had already gotten over 800K downloads from enthusiasts based all over the globe (thereby showcasing how popular crypto mining actually is).
xFast Miner Has the Potential to Dominate the Mining Industry
To further see just how good xFast Miner is, we can compare the platform with its closest competitors from within the mining industry. In this regard, statistical data clearly demonstrates that xFast miner is the best solution for GeForce CUDA mining. However, it also appears as though ZEC mining on the CUDA GTX 960 configuration is better with Bminer.
From an efficiency standpoint, MinerGate’s latest press release states:
“xFast mining on AMD OpenCL configurations gives the user a tangible advantage for XMR and ETH mining,” reads the press release.
Lastly, it is also worth noting that recently, a spokesperson for MinerGate announced that his firm had just launched its latest BTC mining pool (which is based on the SHA-256- protocol).
Even though the crypto sector at large seems to be facing an insane amount of bearish momentum at the moment, the fact that so many enthusiasts are still looking towards crypto mining as a legitimate avenue for making money, only goes to show the pull that this burgeoning financial domain has.
