SHA256 Active Pool Comparison


All testing performed by an Antminer S4 @ 2.18 TH/s (218 Mhz) and my conclusion is that this coin is not profitable on any pool or solo mining, at 0.00002888/BTC it produces at least 2 times less than BTC mining, if your energy efficiency is worse than .75W/GH it will lose you a lot of money. If the coin grows into such a market then it will be a different story. But there are numerous ways to mine this coin which is probably why it get's such poor performance and crazy long lasting periods of difficulty.


#1 Hashlink:

  • Pool Hashrate: 1.2-4.2 TH/s
  • My Hashrate: 1-4 TH/s
  • My 24 Hour Earnings: 420 DGC (Estimated was 600+ at 2 TH/s)
  • Fees: 1%
  • Average Round Duration: 3-10 Minutes
  • Reward Method: PPS
  • My Thoughts: Their US high diff servers have been down so this testing was done on the UK Server, if the US one was functional this would have been more towards the 600 DGC promised, but after seeing the network performance sway in such drastic manors I feel even this high of an output was a fluke.


#2 CryptoPools:

  • Pool Hashrate: 4-5 TH/s
  • My Hashrate: 1-2TH/s
  • My 24 Hour Earnings: Would have been 198 (Estimated was 900+ at 2 TH/s)
  • Fees: 1%
  • Average Round Duration: 5 minutes
  • Reward Method: PPLNS
  • My Thoughts: They do have a high diff server, use port 13350 for over 1024 difficulty, but I was getting 30%+ DOA dropping my hash-rate closer to the 1 TH/s range so I switched back to the low diff server which basically eliminated the DOA rate and my efficiency rose but it was struggling to maintain a good hash-rate, even one that was any better than the high diff issue. Aborted testing after 6 hours with no end of this issue in sight.


#3 MiningPools:

  • Pool Hashrate: 1-2 TH/s
  • My Hashrate:1-2 TH/s
  • My 24 Hour Earnings: 118 DGC
  • Fees:1%
  • Average Round Duration: 30-360 minutes
  • Reward Method: PROP
  • My Thoughts: Half of the time I would get 2 blocks per hour then the other half I would literally get nothing for hours upon hours. This coin has such a fluctuating difficulty, I assume due to the numerous algorithms you can use to mine it, that the difficulty can go sideways at a moments notice and stay that way for hours.


#4 MiningWTF:

  • Pool Hashrate: 5-6 TH/s
  • My Hashrate: 1-2 TH/s
  • My 24 Hour Earnings: Would have been 32 DGC (Estimated was 180-900 for 2 TH/s, never seen such a range for the same hash-rate)
  • Fees:1%
  • Average Round Duration: 15 minutes
  • Reward Method: PPLNS
  • My Thoughts: Aborted testing after 6 hours and only earning 8 DGC! Just awful performance from their serer and ever worse payouts for the hash-rate. This coin clearly has issues with reliability.

Got some spare DGC, throw em my way: DE9qFz6pd4Quggfh6dawmhT7tSbDpVcyhW
