  1. Have you tried the latest version of Claymore? Worth a shot to see if somehow that helps and the devfee for dual mining is lower too. EDIT: Realized you said "dual cards" not "dual mining" my bad. Still worth a shot though.
  2. I'd recommend making an exclusion for Claymore in Defender to begin with, but which cards do you mine with?

    You could just mine on ethermine if you don't like what you hear about nanopool. As for mining ZClassic that's completely up to you, again I'm extremely skeptical how the BTCP fork will work out.
  4. Nope that's a joint statement with Visa. Read Energycore's post.
  5. It's Visa's fault read the edit that I made 6 hours ago
  6. So first you'll have to figure out which coin you want to mine you could use a site like WhatToMine (980 Ti isn't on the list so you might need to do some digging to get the correct values) to see which one is the most profitable at the time. You should choose a coin and stick with it. You'll have to get a wallet, get mining software, and then choose a pool to mine to For example if you were to mine Ethereum I'd recommend using Exodus or MyEtherWallet if you don't want to download the blockchain. For mining software I'd recommend PhoenixMiner or ethminer for Nvidia cards. As for a pool a pretty safe bet would be ethermine or nanopool. All of them should have tutorials that should be enough to get you started, but if you need more help feel free to post again. I've also done some research on the 980 Ti when it comes to mining and it seems like you might have some trouble initially. This post on Reddit might help you if you have a low hashrate. Nicehash is really easy to set up and it's good if you aren't interested in really getting into it, but I wouldn't recommend using it because of how ownership of coins work with them, the fact that a ton of Bitcoin has been stolen from the before, and their fees. I don't see any reason not to use a card to mine on the side when you don't pay electricity. If you're not using it why not make some money with it?
  7. Yeah you can. With a lot of mining software you can disable mining with a specific card on the fly which could be really useful in your case.
  8. I added something similar earlier today to an edit to the original post. Check out the joint statement that Coinbase and Visa released on Coinbase's blog.

    AFAIK nanopool won't do payout until you hit the minimum payout unlike how ethermine will pay you if you have at least 0.01 and it's been a week (source). With nanopool, shortly after you hit 0.05 (assuming you set it to that minimum) you'll be paid to the address that you specified. I think it might be possible to message nanopool and request a manual payout, but I haven't tried that yet.

    Probably is a key phrase when it comes to the price of crypto because it changes very quickly. I watched my wallet go from $120 to $90 within a week during the recent crash.

    With free electricity there's little reason not to mine when you're not gaming on the card. I'd recommend checking a website like WhatToMine to see which coin is worth it to mine and stick with that coin: right now it looks like Ethereum was a good choice. I assume you're mining with Claymore, but I'd personally recommend PhoenixMiner or just straight ethminer for Nvidia cards because I've had better results with my GTX 1060 3GB with them over Claymore. Personally I'm mining ZClassic (ZCL) with bminer because there's a hard fork of it and Bitcoin (BTC) called Bitcoin Private (BTCP) with a 1:1 ratio of BTC to BTCP and ZCL to BTCP at the time of the fork. I don't, I repeat, don't know how it's going to work out or if this is a good choice, but we'll see.
  12. That's probably a really good idea honestly. I might use it in the future with purchases on websites I don't quite trust.
  13. I don't see it anywhere in their sponsor list, why do you mention it?
  14. Question in regard to mining

    Good luck to you and big kudos to FlatBrokeRacing for spending the time to write all of that.
