!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!FOR ALL YOU NVIDIA MINERS OUT THERE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
we are ACTIVELY working on nvidia support. You can follow PiMP development more closely in our Livechat, #PiMP, by subscribing to our Assistant PiMP e-Newsletter on getpimp.org, following us on Twitter and Facebook, etc.
You can also see pimp2.0-nvidia rig(s) on the PiMP farm as we are creating and working on them, at any given time, https://miner.farm/farmer/pimp
Early 2017 we should have a pimp-2.0-nvidia release for you.
So far everything has been running smooth - but they keep releasing updates to miners! Thankfully, you’ve got the PiMPUp Update Platform. This lets you get the latest miners sooner - and get a huge head start above the competiton.
Thanks to PiMPs coming for live chat support, we’ve pushed several great fixes for reliability with the miner.farm agent. We’ve got temperature, fan, and clock control for GPUs - and started on some of the framework for new features coming this year.
There’s also a major Optiminer Zcash update for stability - version 1.3.1, and you can auto-upgrade to it.
First, be sure your miners are stopped with the pimp --stop command.
Run pimpup. It will guide you through PiMP updates, if there are any.
Choose Optiminer from the menu. Should get a big green Success after that.
Run edit zcash-opti.pcfg to change your configuration. FLAGS= should NOT contain the --experimental-kernel flag, this was needed for 1.2, but will break v1.3.1 and newer. You should remove that if it is in there. This is near the bottom of the file.
There’s also been lots of bug fixing and improvements to miner.farm, so it is even easier to see your rigs at a glance. Visit the PiMP farm at https://miner.farm/farmer/PiMP/farmstatus for a look!
Now, for the numbers!
The new Optiminer on your PiMP OS is more stable and gives a nice bump in Zcash hashrate. In the picture below, 2 r360 cards went from 80 sol/s with Optiminer 1.2, to 100 sol/s in Optiminer 1.3.1.
Don’t worry PiMPs - we’ve got much more in store for you, and we’re just getting warmed up for 2017. It’s gonna’ be a great year for cryptocurrencies, and we’re glad to help bring mining to all!
we also have a great new landing page for the zcash miners

We from pimp are always looking for bloggers,vloggers and youtubers if you seen our product and want to write a blogg or make a youtube please contact us via mail (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com ) or come to our irc channel.
Lets first start off this post with mentioning that the price per license is 30 usd per rig, this has gone in effect on the april 3 2017.
The reason for the raised price is that the development of this OS and the Monitoring system had some major backend upgrades and this in turn made the 3 platforms currently in place to be much more stable and reliable. And all of your tools continue to get improvements and updates!
Our test/support team now has some new tools like a full q&a section and customer bug tracking to help you get the most out of your rig and into the crypto mining instead of constantly fixing your rig.
With this i would like to say thanks to all the contributors , helping hands and awesome feedback from the community that make this project a success.
We from pimp like to give a special thanks to rverstar (russian translation ) , jadaking (france translation),seh (german translation) , n1ce (spanish translation) and dbct and his family in helping out with the dutch translation.
We will be implementing them soon.
If you see anything wrong or out of place in the translations please let us know we always try to offer you the best.
