New Announcement: GPU Mining Test Starts!

In order to make full use of the Matrix AI Network’s surplus computing power and better protect the environment, Matrix team decided to make GPU mining available in the test chain. This article will introduce the new functions of GUP mining, preparations and specific steps for the test application.

New Algorithm of GPU Mining

Nodes will undergo AI image computation. After being computed, AI hash will be produced. Combination of multiple hash codes and SM3 computation produces the result of PoW mining. Validators will verify the result by recompution. If the two results are the same, mining blocks will be successfully produced.

During the computation process of AI image, you can get VRF and coinbase to produce random seeds. Then you get 16 images and get AIHash via AI computation.

This test version is not the final version of GPU mining algorithm. Matrix will continue the algorithm upgrading. For instance, Matrix will expand and update the photo gallery of AI image computation on a regular basis.

About testing

Download the GPU Mining gman Compilation and Deployment Manual and the Node Deployment Files and Guide.

Go to “MatrixAINetwork” GitHub to view “Matrix_GPU_Mining_jerry” and download the “GPU Mining gman Compilation and Deployment Manual” document in the README to help you complete the operation of mining equipment debugging; Download the Node Deployment Files and Guide from the MATRIX official website “Download Documentation”.

Get GPU mining test wallet

Apply for test coins

How to apply: Send an email to davidtest@matrix.io, the subject of the email is “GPU Mining Test Coin Application” and fill in the requested wallet address and the amount of test coins requested. The test currency is expected to work in two jobs. The date is up.

After completing all the preparatory work, follow the steps in the GPU test chain mining manual and the node deployment file and guide to start the node GPU mining test!

Test tips

Operating system version: The official website version only supports the Linux kernel operating system. It is recommended to use ubuntu 16.04/18.04 LTS.

Hardware configuration requirements:

2. View the block status of the GPU mining test

Go to the Node GPU Mining Test Browser to view information such as the current block height, the time of the block, the number of transfers, and the maximum TPS value.

3. Deadline of node GPU mining test

The GPU mining test is expected to end in mid-October, but the GPU and CPU mining may occur at the same time, resulting in unstable block speed. In order to truly feel the advantages of GPU mining, it may be based on specific conditions. Adjust the test time accordingly.

If you find any problems during the test, please send an email to public@matrix.io or contact a member of the Matrix team on Telegram.
