How to mine BSOV

 

Not extremely difficult

Believe it or not – Mining is not that difficult for people who are already technical minded. It’s easy to learn with the instructions on this page. Nearly any computer can start mining BSOV, but the computers with high-end graphic cards are the ones which are the most efficient.

Recommended equipment

Recommended operating system right now is Windows and Linux. You can see an overview over user-submitted GPU stats to see how your graphic card can eventually perform. For the SoliditySHA3-algorithm that BitcoinSOV uses, usually Nvidia GPU’s (like Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti) are the most efficient.

Rent equipment

If you don’t have a GPU, you may find websites which rent out high-end GPU-servers.

Mining calculator – How much can you mine?

In the Stats-page, you will find a mining calculator.

New FPGA – Get the most efficient and profitable miner

If you are more technically advanced, then you can buy a FPGA miner and reprogram it. If you know how, then please tell us, so that we can share a tutorial with the community!

In the future: If adoption continues, there may be developed specialized mining units called FPGA or ASIC to mine BSOV tenfolds more efficiently. These machines may make GPU-mining nearly obsolete, just like CPU-mining was made obsolete earlier. If you are interested in buying a FPGA or an ASIC, then you will have to stay updated before they eventually are sold out of stock.

A mineable ERC20 = ERC918 … BSOV is different.

Mining BitcoinSOV works differently than normal Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH) mining. In BSOV, the miners are not verifying transactions, and there is no consensus mechanism. BSOV mining is performed by interacting with the BitcoinSOV smart-contract, which provides the mathematical challenges. The BSOV smart-contract was copied from the open-source code of the cryptocurrency 0xBTC, which was the first mineable ERC20 token, creating a new token standard called ERC918.
