Zcash Mining
#1
Zcash is a privacy coin that’s been on the market for a few years now. It uses a mining algorithm called Equihash. With an active developer and community, “shielded” (or private) transactions, and an appropriate fund for the founders, Zcash has been steadily developing, innovating, and appreciating in price. Zcash’s Equihash is currently only mineable by GPUs. In theory, it’s also mineable by CPUs. But you’ll probably use up your CPU’s power before you can make a dollar out of it, so I wouldn’t recommend that. Equihash has been used by several other projects, most notably BitcoinPrivate, Bitcoin Gold, and ZenCash. The Basics of Equihash If you’re new to mining Equihash, there’s only one thing you should know: It’s mostly mined through Nvidia GPUs. While AMD graphics cards are able to mine Equihash, they tend to perform very poorly in this algorithm. For example, the AMD Vega64 and Nvidia GTX 1070 have similar hash rates, while the GTX 1070 is almost half the price. Zcash Mining Rig setup This mining rig setup is the same as any other hardware setup. For a recap, you can check our Monero article or ETH article. But one thing that may differ is the mining software. Equihash can use one of these types of mining software: Claymore (for AMD cards) or DSTM miner, Bminer, or EWBF miner (for Nvidia cards). These options mostly have the same range of hash rates on the same cards. Some of them can be a little better on a specific card, so you should download all compatible miners and give them a try.

A rig of 6 cards can easily pack 4500 H/s, which is pretty great. And it’s also not bad as far as power efficiency. The only drawback that this card has is that it’s currently very overpriced. Before the GPU craze, it was about $800. So watch out for good deals, and you should be all set with a great card!
