Over the last week, I had at least two people ask me about updating the miner to support the cryptonight light algorithm required AEON and TRTL. When I got these requests, I was a bit confused … I thought I had updated those ages ago … but who knows, maybe there had been another fork!?
Well, I didn’t have any time to look into it until earlier today; but having now just re-tested the respective two command-lines from the “supported coins” page, I still am confused: at least on my side both AEON and TRTL are running just fine. That said, nobody seems to have run either one of these two coins for months (there’s no dev share activity for them), so there seems to be some issue that I cannot reproduce.
As such: If anybody did want to run those coins, and ran into issues with it: Please let me know. The only issue I could think of is that the miner that is preinstalled on the lukSticks is too old (in which case all you have to do is update the miner on those sticks), but otherwise it should work just fine.
All that said – AEON and TRTL might not be the most profitable coins for Phis: The big advantage of the phis is that they have lots of MCDRAM, so the “heavier” the coin the bigger the (relative) advantage over CPUs with smaller caches – so at least if the market forces are only mildly in effect CPUs with small caches should be most profitable on “light” coins, and phis most profitable at “heavy” ones.
With that – happy mining!
