How can we improve Bitcoin/Litecoin/Dogecoin Miner?

Paid Miner app with no ads. Wallet app (Free with ads & Paid no ads).

Bring us a premium Miner app with no ads please. Also bring us a Wallet app that is free with ads and paid without ads.

Lastly make (and continue support for) the Miner and Wallet apps for Xbox 360, Xbox One, Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows RT, and Windows Phone 8.

It very much wonderful to have someone like GroupFabric to bring such apps but we would be very much thankful to you all for full support rather then mix matching our setup with other apps and wallets.

    how do I get paid it says that I have to have 5000 and it will automatically deposit that into my account but I have not seen it yet how do I get paid?

    Lisa - this is for feature requests, please use the Contact Support function if you need help.

    That said, Bitcoin Miner lets you set any Bitcoin receive address generated from a wallet as the payout address so Xapo should work just fine.

    can you process my earnings directly to xapo accout because I was hacked of all the earnings prior from my block chain and I need a way to have it directly securely sent there. or a wallet here and I have read all the comments. but I am running bitcoin here and on another pc dogecoin. so I need some help

    Xbox 360 doesn't have the platform-level code to enable Windows apps to run on it - other challenges with X360 are that it uses a different CPU instruction set (PowerPC), so any mining cores would have to be completely re-written (all of our CPU mining cores are at this point in hand-tuned X86/X64/ARM assembly).

    Unfortunately it's a completely different process to ship an X360 app than it is a Win10/Xbox One app, so it's unlikely we'll ever see publicly available miner for a stock X360. It would be a massive undertaking for a developer and for Microsoft to back-port a lot of their infrastructure.

    Finally, the X360 GPU doesn't support DirectX 10 Shader Model 4, which is the first version of Direct X that supports compute shaders and has the minimum capabilities needed for mining (more than 32 temp registers for example). Without SM4 compute shaders, the only thing you can use is the CPU, which you wouldn't want to as the X360 CPU is very old.

    Separately, Xbox One does have DX12/AMD Mantle which I'm pretty exited to be working on right now!

    This is great and very welcoming news and updates! Will the Xbox 360 get Miners as well?

  • AdminAlex (CEO / Founder, GroupFabric) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Right now we don't take out fees from mining proceeds - we've found most users prefer ads or an ability to pay to disable ads over mining fees. The nice thing is users get to keep everything they mine!

    Development has been ongoing and we have been working closely with Microsoft, but don't have anything to announce with regard to Xbox One yet. Our highest priority is boosting yields, getting Android support online, and better Windows 10 support (which carries over to Xbox).

    It's a lot of coding and integration work - right now there are several outstanding bugs on each of the platforms that are blocking release and we're working with MSFT and GOOG respectively on them.

    Taking a small percentage of our mined coin would be equally fair for both miners and GroupFabric.

    Any news or updates for a better improved "All In One" Miner and Wallet app yet? As well any progress for a Wallet and Xbox Miner app? It be great to put these machines to work.

  • AdminAlex (CEO / Founder, GroupFabric) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes. :) These are all really good points (we do want to do all of them). Wallets are tricky because they have much higher engineering requirements due to security and network requirements. Ads are tricky because they provide recurring revenue which supports development and lets the app be free. Without ads there would have to be some sort of recurring fee or per-transaction model to support development (open to ideas here).

    Mainly it comes down to engineering resources and scheduling though. However we are looking at all of these!
