New Kawpowminer 1.2.0 and Raven Testnet Pool on BSOD
There are just 5 days left before the Ravencoin (RVN) fork to the new KAWPOW algorithm and you should probably get ready for mining. To do so you might want to try the latest official Kawpowminer 1.2.0 bugfix release supporting the new KAWPOW algorithm to be used by Ravencoin for mining after the fork. This release is based on Progminer ProgPoW miner and is opensource and has no development fee unlike some other miners available that also do support the KAWPOW algorithm. Do note that the miner binary release still does not include the required Nvidia CUDA libraries, so you would also need to have the latest Nvidia CUDA Toolkit installed (or at least the runtime libraries from it).
Besides the Minermore RVN testnet pool announced with the initial release of the Kawpowminer, there is now a RVNt pool for testing KaWPOW mining on BSDO Pool as well. You can use the below command line to test mining on the BSOD pool, just set a WALLET address and you should be ready to go:
RavenCoin KAWPOW testnet BSOD pool:
kawpowminer -U -P stratum+tcp://WALLET.firstname.lastname@example.org:2638
Do note that BSOD pool recommends that you test with the latest Kawpowminer or the latest NBMiner 30.0 as other mining software such as GMiner 2.09 and TT-Miner 4.0.0 apparently still have some issues that need to be fixed for proper KAWPOW support, though they will hopeful be fixed in time for the fork expected to happen on May 6th 2020 at 18:00:00 UTC.
