Minergate

AVOID -- They are skimming

AVOID MINERGATE, THEY AREN’T GIVING YOU YOUR HASHES!!!!

I’ve been working with someone on ideas for more power efficient Monero (XMR) mining. During the course of our discussion and testing they indicated that the hash rates I was reporting ‘seemed wrong’.

I’ve got three XEON CPUs, an i7, an AMD FX 8320, pair of GTX 1030s and pair of GTX 730s all chewing away on XMR.

Before this post, I was using Minergate as my pool and they were reporting a hashrate of ~1kh/s for all my gear. Based on the feedback I received from my peer, I’ve been running an experiment for the last few days.

I moved 12 of my CPUs/GPUs to SupportXMR using ccminer and XMR-Stak.

Below are the results of my testing. Please note, this is an identical setup with only 12 of my gear swapped.

MINERGATE IS SKIMMING HASHES, THERE IS NO OTHER SANE ANSWER AT THIS POINT
