Reviving Your GPU Mining Rig for Dynex
If you’re like me and have gone through the process of setting up GPU mining rigs in the past and then having to shut them down as profitability dwindled, you may be feeling like it’s high time for a revival. Over the past few weeks, a few cryptocurrencies have emerged that make these rigs not just viable, but profitable, and notably lucrative, once again. Dynex in particular has caught my eye.
Mining with Dynex
Many of you might ask, “Is it worth mining Dynex? Am I too late?” To answer, absolutely not. Over the last few days, I’ve been using my GPU mining rigs to mine Dynex. If you want to know how I did it or how lucrative it can be, stick around. I’ll take you through the entire process from setting up a Dynex wallet, picking a pool, and then configuring two GPU mining rigs.
Dynex as a cryptocurrency has really excited me about powering up my GPU mining rigs again. Despite the trend nature of cryptocurrencies, with the prices often doing a roller-coaster, the Dynex picture over the month actually seems to be holding steady. Even with a bit of correction, it’s still sitting comfortably profitable on my GPU mining rigs. That being said, every GPU certainly has a different fine-tuned configuration.
Setting Up a Dynex Wallet
This is incredibly straightforward and can be completed in less than five minutes. Simply head on over to the official Dynex website and navigate to the ‘get’ are where you’ll find the option to strp up your own Dynex Wallet. It’s a web wallet, so the entire process is conducted within your browser.
Choosing a Mining Pool
In my case, I chose to go with Hero Miners. This is due to their fairly recent announcement introducing a $1,000 USD airdrop as well as zero percent pool fees – music to my ears as a miner keen to maximize profitability.
Setting Up GPU Mining Rigs
For this, you’re going to need Hive OS. Once you’ve created your wallet, added it to Hive OS, and are ready to mine Dynex, you’ll need to create a new flight sheet with Dynex as the coin and Hero Miners as the pool. Hive OS will do a lot of the heavy lifting for you with regards to configurations. If you’re like me and use 3070 or 6600 rigs, you’ll want to prefer a particular miner for each. You’ll need to set-up each miner’s configurations appropriately – CPU resources, set algorithms, and specific endpoints.
Mining With the 3070 Rig
If you plan on mining with your 3070 rig, I recommend setting up the miner configuration with one zero miner, which has proven to be the most efficient for NVIDIA cards. Remember to set the watchdog to reboot the rig if the hash rate falls below a certain number, this way you keep your hardware safe while maximizing your mining capacity.
Mining With the 6600 Rig
In the case of the 6600 rig, you’ll need to use the SRB miner, which is most suitable for AMD setups. Like with the 3070 setup, don’t forget to set the watchdog to reboot the rig if the hash rate falls below a pre-set number for maximum efficiency and to protect your hardware.
Dynex is undoubtedly a cryptocurrency that has breathed new life into GPU mining rigs, and I’ve really enjoyed exploring the potential for profitability it holds. So, whether you’re planning on mining long-term or just looking to dip your toes into the mining pool, Dynex presents an exciting opportunity to really put your GPU mining rigs to work.
Remember, whilst mining can be profitable, it does come with its own set of risks and challenges. Therefore, make sure you’re mining responsibly and enjoy the process.
