    I can't comment on this as this service is being run by GammaNow - but it's clear that it's working for many others. It's in beta so there would be issues from time to time. What I can suggest is that you create a bug report here on Insider and I'll have the GammaNow guys look into it and post here. And also - be patient (though I know it's hard)!

    I’m ex-miners hater;), now mining zSilver with my rtx Card on Razer Core. Does anyone know that it’ll lower the cards value since it’s used for mining, well not intensive one, like on games break while watching YouTube etc?

    Generally mining cards don't get as much money when re sold, but normally if you don't run it mining 24 / 7 like the bitcoin miners last year (and some of them still are), it is likely to do less damage to the card long term so you should still be able to get a bit of money for it. Most standalone people only mining on one card don't normally say a card was used for mining anyways, and it is hard to find out if it was or not.

    I used a bit my gpu for mining and the fans just broke xD I replaced them and it works like a charm ;) So it's always an option to replace the fans if you want to sell your gpu (but be carefull, intensive mining is really exhausting for your hardware)

    I really wish we had more info about estimated earnings per hour , built in settings for GPU , factors for earnings etc...
    Will give it a go and tell you the results , I'm currently running 1070ti mini by zotac.

    The program is still in beta, so those things may come to be some day while they improve the application. The estimates would likely vary a ton considering the amount of factors that could change the amount of silver you earn.

    Could you inform me how much you earn per hour with your 1060? Just for research.

    I personally don't use the program, not really interested in it. I did run it for 5 minutes and I got nothing though :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. In some of the other softminer threads you can see posts of people who used it, one I can remember off the top of my head was dual 1080 Ti's getting about 15 silver in 15 minutes.

    Any supportive evidence to show that many people are earning the silver would be more alleviating. Please provide it so we can believe in this system.

    There are literally a couple of posts here that people are earning Razer Silver with Softminer.

    68.055554 days of full 24 hours of "Soft Mining" use on a GTX1080 Ti will get you est: 98000 points, which is the amount needed to buy Tomb Raider. Wow this is disgusting.... Sorry but, and I sincerely mean this. I will never use a Razer product again. I'm disgusted in this.

    And for anyone wanting to know the math.... 15mins of softmining get you around 15 silver
    98000 the amount to redeem the new Tomb raider game (which FYI you can get for almost half price now on GMG) 98000(silver coins needed) ÷ 60 (minutes in hour) = 163.333333 (hours) ÷ 24 (hours in a day) = 68.055554 (Days)
    Wow just wow and at the cost of even idle electricity this would for me in the UK cost much more than the game is worth, and at a price when we know nothing of what Razer is doing with said information and usage... no doubt simply monero or some hash, but the amount of money even if 1000 people are doing this that Razer will be banking off while mindless Razer fanboys are idling there PC 24 hours a day (if they expect to get Tomb Raider before the next one is released lol) Guys Razer what the hell... at 0.13pence in the UK per kilowatt at 24 hours a day usage in 68 days when I earn enough to buy Tomb Raider this will of cost me effectively £212 for this game that's currently is available online for less than £30

    I would imagine if Razer have any sense they will remove this or at least give much much more info and options for users, as the current way they are doing this is 100% a damn rip of and frankly fraud and deception. The silver needs to be drastically lowered too...

    Good luck with it, Razer has slowly been making me steer away from them over the years, its a shame really. BUt for me this is the final nail in the coffin.
    Min-Liang Tan dude you are single handedly ruining Razer...

    I got 480 Silver in 9 hours (53 an hour) with a 1070 TI. It was varying quite a bit, 45 a hour, then 65 an hour, so I'd like to get an even longer average. But it worked good, nice and simple. It will auto start when idle for 5 minutes, and you can maybe browse the web if you want to keep it running, but your PC will be slow, so plan on only using it when AFK like it's designed for.

    Soooo don't use it then? Everyone can do the math for themselves since it depends on so many things. If you have an inefficient PSU and expensive electricity it might not be worth it, but that doesn't mean it's a bad program. Also you chose the worst example, for something like the HDK kit it's a good deal. Like has been said dozens of times, this is to supplement the entire Gold program, not just running Softminer 24/7 (why would you do that anyways since you can't game then?):big_grin_:

    Maybe you guys should do some reading before installing this software, what is essentially malware, on your computer. What you are getting in return for mining bitcoin for Razer is squat. Also, since bitcoin is crashing harder than, well anything right now, why on earth is Razer even bothering trying to get people to mine for them? Here is a good read if anyone is interested:

    https://www.extremetech.com/gaming/...wards-program-mines-cryptocurrency-on-your-pc

    Quote from the article:

    Regardless of where you live in the world, you will be spending more money in electricity bills than this would ever get you back in return.

    Razer, you guys make good products and you have certainly gotten better over the years. Don't ruin yourselves now with this BS. I used to hate Razer products, the first keyboard I purchased 5 or 6 years ago from you guys was the worst pos I have ever used. It wouldn't even work unless it had an internet connection and when I booted up my pc I had to plug in a different keyboard until Windows had fully loaded and your stupid software loaded as well. Then, and only then, did that waste of money and space keyboard actually work. I used a Das Keyboard for years after that and it was the best keyboard I have ever used. Then Das released that 5Q monstrosity and they have essentially done the same thing you guys did years ago. Now I am back with a Razer keyboard and it is great. Heck, I have 2 Blade laptops, 2 Core X's, Blackwidow Elite, Hunstman Elite, Lancehead mouse, and a Deathadder mouse. All excellent products. Then I hear about this crap you are trying to pull. All it takes is one thing like this to make people distrust a company. There is obviously something going on here and the customers are getting screwed while you guys make out like bandits. I will not support a company like that anymore.

    Wow, their math and knowledge of the Gold program is really bad. So they just took 500 a day without even trying it, then didn't realize there's many other ways to get Silver so they think it's impossible to get the top rewards within a year? Great research and journalism. :joy:

    Edited by a moderator. Guess the damage is trying to be minimized because it’s worse than expected :-/

    No, it's because you double posted, check out the House Rules. It looks like all your content is still there.
