HandyMiner GUI and CLI Updates

HandyMiner is ready for the Goldshell HS1-PLUS

We’ve been back to work cooking up support for Goldshell’s latest line of Handshake Blake2bSHA3 ASICs. A step-up improvement from the batch that debuted in Q2 2020, these feature 4 additional hash workers and a larger heat sync, plus an improved power supply for better performance - providing ~110GH with just 115watts.

It’s small and quiet enough for a desk, and low-powered enough to run anywhere in your home. When coupled with the HandyMiner ecosystem of software using our GUI and CLI, your experience is simple, allowing you to mine in less than <60 seconds.

About HandyMiner Goldshell GUI: A simple GUI interface for HSD Mining to enable the Goldshell HS1/HS1 Plus to communicate with the Handshake HSD via pool stratum mining. It abstracts away all the complexities of mining. Simply paste your payout address, and choose a pool from the dropdown menu. Mining Handshake is as easy as pressing “play” with HandyMiner.

Remember, only after you’ve accrued enough earnings at a pool will you get a deposit to your account. The setup should take no less than 10 seconds if you already have an HNS address made and ready (we recommend Bob Wallet or Namebase).

We hope to continue to support improving the hash distribution of the network by support more ASIC miners, and adding direct support in our open-source project to ensure additional hashrate and security comes to Handshake in the short-term.

If you are a mining pool or hardware manufacturer interested in mining Blake2bSHA3 hash, please let us know by emailing Steven McKie of the Handy Software team (and Amentum GP) here.
