4GB GPUs will stop working with Ravencoin's (KawPow) algorithm on Windows

July 25, 2022, 3:01 p.m.

💥What happened?
Ravencoin DAG file sits 3.5 Gb. GPUs with 4Gb VRAM have no enough free memory for DAG file storage.
Older miners may remember that similar happened with Ethereum.

Why? There should be 500 Mb left?!
Windows and background app may consume from 100 up to 500 Mb of VRAM.

🤔What should I do now? How could I continue mining?
Kryptex took care of everything! We already add alternative coins ETC and ERGO.
If you have chosen KawPow manually - switch to alternative coins.

New Kryptex 4.20.12 has arrived

June 10, 2022, 3:02 p.m.

If you are mining Autolykos2 ERGO - be sure to update!

❓What happened?
LOLminer broke down and stopped working on the new ERGO era.

🛠How did Kryptex solve the problem?
We have updated the miners for the ERGO coin so that you can continue mining ERGO. Now you can mine ERGO with T-rex miner and TeamRedMiner.

🤔What should you do?
Update Kryptex to the latest version 4.20.12 and run the benchmark to resume mining ERGO coin.

Do not update your Nvidia driver, if you have graphic cards with LHR lock!

May 25, 2022, 5:20 p.m.

Nvidia re-enables LHR and broke unlock algorithm with new 512.95 driver. If you have already updated your driver to the 512.95, LHR unlock will not work for you.

What to do if I have already updated my driver?
- Downgrade your driver to the previous version.

Which version should I install now?
- Kryptex recommends 512.15

How should I do that?
- Cleanup your system from previous drivers using DDU program.
- Install 512.15 driver.
- Enable Nvidia maximum performance mode.

A generous gift from Kryptex 🎁

Dec. 10, 2021, 4:20 p.m.

Today after the update, our Ethereum node lost its mind and credited you with more bitcoins than it should have.

Our generous gift to you

If you mined Ethereum, you will see a hill as in the screenshot. It seems the node wanted to draw a Christmas tree. 🎄

In total, our users received about $80,000. We decided not to change anything and leave this to you as a gift. Let's assume that Santa Claus arrived early and brought you a holiday on the eve of the New Year 🙂

The maintenance is still underway, so the statistics after this “hill” will be uploaded a little later.

Happy New Year to you! 🌟☃️

DO NOT update Nvidia drivers to version 496!

Nov. 12, 2021, 9:05 p.m.

We noticed a drop in hash rate to 2-6 MH/s on GTX 1000 series graphics cards.

GTX 1060 6GB hash rate

If you experience hash rate drop, we recommend to rollback to 472.12-472.39. We hope this is a one-time bug and not a new Nvidia policy.

Kryptex is distributing $550,000 as a compensation for the brief periods of instability which occurred in January and February.

Sept. 28, 2021, 3:27 p.m.

During the New Year holidays, the Ethereum pool was malfunctioning: connections were being dropped, and solutions were mistakenly rejected. We paid the compensation to everyone who was mining with us that time.

In January and February, Ethereum market price was about $700 - $1,500. We compensated the downtime at the current Ethereum rate of $3000 for 1 ETH. This means that you received 3-4 times more money than you lost at that time.

If you have been mining with Kryptex in January — you can see the compensation in the "Dashboard" section under the mining statistics chart.

Thank you for your trust in us! 🖤

EIP 1559. What will happen to Ethereum mining after August 4.

July 19, 2021, 6:41 p.m.

EIP 1559

Ethereum miner's reward is:

  • 2 ETH fixed block reward.
  • All fees included in the block. Now it's on average 0.3 ETH fees per block, for the last half year it was sometimes more than 10 ETH. A year or two ago, it was less than 0.1 ETH.

The rise in popularity of Ethereum and DeFi projects resulted in a rise in fees. It's definetely good for miners — we earn 5-10 times more. It's bad for ETH users — they have to pay huge fees from $10 to $600 to transfer money.

The EIP 1559 update is changing the way fees are formed. Transactions will become cheaper and extra fees will be burned. For miners this means a drop in profitability in between of 2% and 70%.

Should miners be discouraged? No. Low fees will only increase the popularity of Ethereum, while burning fees will reduce the amount of coins in circulation and lead to deflation. All together this will raise the Etherium exchange rate to the moon. In an ideal world, miner's income in dollars would not desrease, but, on the contrary, increase.

Multiply mining profits – strategies and cases

June 21, 2021, 7:54 a.m.

A miner can simply mine cryptocurrency on GPU and CPU or he can use additional tricks to increase his profits even more without increasing hashrate. We show by example how in one year you can turn $1100 into $11000.

Have you seen our recent YouTube video?

June 3, 2021, 9:18 p.m.

Kryptex has tested Radeon R9 Nano, a powerful graphics card from AMD, released in 2015. The card has 4GB of HBM video memory and a powerful GPU, which is great for Ravencoin mining.

👐 Update on the ETH pool status and share rewards

Jan. 7, 2021, 1:52 a.m.

Hi there everyone! Happy New year!

Here is a little update on the ETH mining pool changes

🚧 Ethereum pool state

Mining went unstable due to a bug in Phoenix miner, which caused it to generate thousand of incorrect shares a second. This caused a DoS "attack" by our own miners.

Currently we have deployed a new version of Ethereum pool code which mitigates this issue and is very stable so far.

If you still experience troubles with the connection, try redoing the benchmarks, to force Kryptex get new settings for the pool. If this doesn't help, describe the symptoms in the PMs or here in the chat, and tell us your IP address from here.

💱 Solutions → Bitcoins exchange

Solutions (shares) exchange is currently require our manual actions, to ensure that everyone gets the correct amount of bitcoins and no money is lost.

We exchange them in big bulks, so for some people the solutions might still look "frozen", but for others they are converting to bitcoin.

The pause won't affect your rewards, even the opposite → we are exchanging them when ETH price went at least +30% more, than when you have mined them in the first place. The end result will be a net positive for you.

🙌🏻 Compensations for the downtime

We take full responsibility for the incident and will compensate ALL the losses caused by the downtime:

  • All the time, while miners where unstable and crashed will be rewarded.
  • We have enough telemetry to calculate and reimburse all the damage even without sent shares. We will basically pay you for the Kryptex-app uptime.
  • All shares (valid/rejected/all) will be rewarded.

You will see it on the "Earnings history" graph — all the blanks and drops will be filled with the earnings, as if there was no problems at all.

ETA for the final fix

The pool issue is pretty much have been solved, so the app should work well.

The automatic exchange for the solutions (shares) will be resumed in 3-4 days. In the meantime, we are exchanging them in bulk by hands.

The compensations will be later, since we need to make the calculations and write a perfect code to commit the rewards, so that everyone is reimbursed and satisfied. We hope to finish it in a week or sooner, but we'll see how it goes.

Once again, thank you for your trust and patience!
Nothing motivates us more, then your love for our product 🖤 🙏🏻

Dear English-speaking users

Dec. 7, 2017, 2:09 a.m.

Dear English-speaking users,

We understand that seeing Russian language and Russian rubles all over the site can be a little bit confusing. Don't worry, this doesn't prevent you from using Kryptex. You can use Kryptex as long as you know how to use bitcoins.

  • Use Kryptex app for mining: it's fully translated into English.
  • Receive payouts in bitcoins. The minimum withdrawal amount is just 0.0002 BTC, and we provide lowest possible network fees (0.0001 BTC per transaction).
  • If you have any questions, feel free to contact the support team.

We work hard to finish internationalization of the site. This means that English FAQ and other withdrawal options (e.g. PayPal) will be available soon. Sorry for the inconvenience!
