MacMiner stopped working with nicehash


I was mining keccak in nicehash pool using macminer, but now it just quites:

[10:04:45] Testing
[10:04:45] Succeeded delayed connect
[10:04:45] Socket closed waiting in recv_line
[10:04:45] Closing socket for stratum
[10:04:45] Failed to parse a \n terminated string in recv_line: buffer =
[10:04:45] Initiating stratum failed on
[10:04:45] Suspending stratum on
[10:04:45] Closing socket for stratum

I cannot use another pool to mine. I have a Mac with Radeon Pro 570 4 GB. What should I mine to get best results and from nicehash?

Thanks, please help me!!!


  • Apparently they ran out of keccak orders. Why can't you use a different pool?
    I think the ones at 0 hash you can't mine because there are no orders.

  • with one can be mined using GPU ? Sorry for this noob question

    Definitely SHA256 and scrypt. Maybe try Decred or QRK.

  • I got this but I don't know if I'm actually mining anything

  • Looks like it. Give it a while and see whether you get accepted shares. It's possible the difficulty is too high given ASICs mining SHA256 but I think people have said you can still GPU mine it at nicehash.
