Mining Chia cryptocurrency on Windows 10

I bought a 6TB HDD for 19 990 rubles (in Russia) and started to mine Chia cryptocurrency on my Windows 10 machine using existing 500GB SSD as a temporary space. Now it is building the plots:


My successful trade with the peaks detection bot

On 4/22/2021 at 00:05 my trading bot detected VIA/BTC pump on Binance crypto exchange and I did the following successful trades:


Nvidia 3GB mining is still alive

Today I started to mine BTG on my 3GB farm. The miner consumes about 1.7MB on HiveOS:

BTG did 3X in April and theoretically it can be the most profitable coin on 3GB cards.

How I used OMNI USDT client on my home Windows machine

First, as a true C++ developer, I installed Ubuntu 18.04 and compiled omnicore from sources, but after that I realized that Windows omnicore-0.9.0 client can be downloaded and run directly on my Windows 10 machine.

I found omnicore-qt.exe in the unpacked files and run it:

$context = stream_context_create($opt);
$params['timestamp'] = number_format(microtime(true)*1000,0,'.','');
$query = http_build_query($params, '', '&');
$signature = hash_hmac('sha256', $query, $secret);
$endpoint = "{$query}&signature={$signature}";

$res = file_get_contents($endpoint, false, $context);
echo $res;

My first experiment with a peak detection algorithm

Hi guys!

For those how are interested in what I am doing now I provided my app screenshots with ‘Find Peaks’ button that runs ZScore algorithm on a cryptocurrency market data (follow the this link for the algorithm source code in C++).

Honestly I am not quite enough understand yet how it works, because I run it first time today, but at least there is some correlation between input parameters and the results. The lesser the threshold and the longer the lag the lesser peaks are found. Increasing the influence also reduces the peak count.
