How to mine Sedra with GPU/FPGA/ASIC

In this post I will briefly describe Sedra blockchain, and will provide mining tips for those who want to participate.

What is Sedra blockchain?

Sedra source-code is a fork of Kaspa. It is using the same algorithm.
Respectively it inherits the biggest advantage of the scalability.
Bitcoin currently can perform less than 12 transactions per second (TPS). However, it can scale with a layer 2 chains.
Blockchains like Ethereum and Solana, are Proof-of-Stake (PoS), which enables then to perform up to 50-100K TPS.
However, PoS technology is not censorship resistant at all (in spite their supporters claims it is).
I'll write later, a separate post for blockchains performance and the different approaches, to solve the scalability problem.

Initially proposed by Yonatan Sompolinsky, a consensus mechanism "GHOSTDAG" allows many blocks to be validated at the same time. This approach has the potential to perform huge number of transactions, being censorship resistant at the same time.

Mining Sedra SDR

Sedra is using a kHeavyHash algorithm.

Mining hardware

Sedra can be mined with FPGA and ASIC. Mining with GPU is no longer profitable.

Mining software

KAS can be mined with quite big number of applications. Here are some of them.

To start mining

1. Download the and unpack the miner

If your Windows suggest that the miners are "potentially unwanted" software, you may need to select "Allow on device" option in Windows Security settings.

2. Test the connection with the pool

Find the nearest server to your geographical area, and ping it. If the ping is done for less than 100ms, you can consider this server for mining.

$ ping
3. Run the miner

Run the miner. The command line depends from you miner, and your OS. For example to start mining with NBMiner, the run command is:

$ ./lolMiner --algo KASPA --pool --user [address].[workername]

You can quickly configure your command in our SDR Pool Page and tap "Start Mining" button.

Good luck!
