vertcoin Lyra2REV2 mining on mac

hi,
i have been mining almost for two days now, using your awesome macminer tool and ur instructions on keccak, it has a speed of 415 mh in average. i have a mac pro 2014 mid and an external gpu radeon 580rx 8gb attached to it. after two days of mining and also trying other currencies on mac miner,i find that the only currency that i can mine is keccak, is there any other currencies and updates on mining, we need to get enlighten.on the other hand, i start to do search on vertcoin lyra2rev2 because in nicehash algorithm statistics it pays 6.2561
BTC/TH/day compare to keccak which pays 0.1456
BTC/TH/day. can you please share the latest update for how to set up mac to mine lyra2rev2?
i mean if there is a better option out there why not consider the best outcome...
if we can mine lyra2rev2 on mac with external gpu,is my btc wallet adress will be accessible. if not where can we get compatible online wallet or something similar, i dont want to use my space on my harddisk and loose time on synchronizing

thank you

  • I haven't found a GPU miner that works reliably for Lyra2REv2 on macOS, but the CPU miner for it works fine. For the GPU you could also try Scrypt, X11, XMR or ethereum mining.

  • hi,
    gpu miner on scrypt gives me the following error:Starting… [2018-02-10 00:18:41] Started bfgminer 5.4.2-unknown

    as far as my limited knowledge on the process bfgminer starts automatically and try to connects to the primary pool.. i typed in the nicehash stratum server but apparently it throws error, your help will be much appreciated

  • That shouldn't be, I haven't run a P2Pool node at that address for a long time! Please edit /Users/Library/Application Support/MacMiner/ltcurls.conf and replace it with your pool details.
