Hello PiMPs and non PiMPs!

PiMP this month has seen a lot of new people as well as the usual regulars that always seem to know what is going on in crypto!
Thanks to your honest feedback, we went back to the basics. We have been optimizing, slimming down, and bug fixing to get the stability PIMP is known for.

Miner.farm has continued to grow in every way. The PIMP farm, the free accounts and subscribers have continued to suggest great ideas and improvements and the service keeps getting better thanks to you!
On top of that it is a awesome way to view control and manage your rigs from 1 rig up to a big farm
This brings me to the best stuff the getPiMP family has put up for all of you to help you stay ahead.
On top of this all we had the breaking may new release for you all and are getting great feedback on that aswell.

Special thank you to thesmokingman and SEH for extensive nvidia development work. Thesmokingman has gone above and beyond what we ask of PIMP Testing/Support Team and we are very thankful.

SPOTLIGHT ON QUALITY:

% of Copies sold that required support:

JAN: 1%
FEB: <1%
MAR: 3.5%
APR: 2%
MAY: 4%

Dev Teaser:

We have been working on the nvidia overclocking scripts overclocking support for amdgpu coming soon.

Feature Spotlight:

pimp –test this is a awesome way to see if your setup works like a well pimped out machine. It will show you the start up miner command that it uses, starts the miner and then attaches to the miner screen automatically. This allows you to see more information about what the miner is doing on your rig.

Quick Tips:

Why do we check sgminer -n in the helpme? You can get right to the point. If the miner can see the GPU, we are pretty much good to go. Beyond this, is just editing the conf file, add miner, start miner. Problems? Probably your conf settings, pool or network issue, or hung GPU.

DBCT question of the month:

Because we value you as a miner we are constantly working on new things but we could use your help.

To wrap it up for this month:

Crypto mining is getting more traction as it gains more support from the public every day.
With BTC , ETH, ZEC and others reaching for the moon many people turn to the cryptoworld as a great way of making money and having fun and a great time with tweaking and getting the most out of there system.

As the first original professional mining OS we are proud and excited about this.
We encourage new miners to try PiMP and start mining and using crypto

Stay tuned for more stories and case studies from our friends and supporters and even our competitors, as we dig into what makes a successful mining operation, so we can all grow and learn together with PIMP.

Break Break
