Welcome to Quark Community

Quark is an open source software used mainly as a digital currency that employs multiple cryptographic algorithms, which unlike fiat/national currencies provides the platform for a decentralised monetary system.

Quark was launched in 2013 with the belief that the control of money should not be in the hands of the few, but in the hands of the many. This forum tries to build on that ideology by distributing Quarks in the hands of those that are active in the community. By posting quality articles and contributing to general discussions you will earn Quarks.

GPU Mining?

    Is there such thing with Quark? I've searched and haven't found much that pointed to a definitive answer.

    I actually tried that right before posting. I've personally never had luck with any DOS miner, and from what I can tell it only allows you to pool mine, where I'm trying to solo mine.

    i think it works solo mining, in the pool server try to use the IP of your mining machine, if its on local put and for port use the rpcport setting that you have in the configuration file, let me know if it works.

    I've had no luck so far. CPU Mining doesn't appear to be function either. CPU utilization while mining using the wallet only shows 3%.

    Using sgminer, I'm still having issues having it connect and verify username/password. I've tried using localhost,, and my local IP, however neither are working. I even a specific account with administrative privileges, since I typically use no password on my miner.

    Mind you I haven't had a lot of time to play around this weekend so I haven't thoroughly gone through everything.

    I mined quark a couple of days with my gpus, between monero and primecoin. I was trying gpu miners on cpu coins. :)

    is it better cpu mine with the wallet inself, ore use some external program?

    yes use your wallet, set it at minimum and put it in tray, depending on your CPU you'll find block once each couple of days. Good luck!

    I can confirm that I've tested sgminer on Linux with AMD GPUs with the new wallet and it works good.

    I'm a little inexperienced with sgminer (spoiled by GPUminer with bitcoin), and I'm missing something. I must have spent 6 hours attempting to figure out what I was doing wrong with absolutely no luck. If someone could provide a simple how-to gpu mine Quark with sgminer, I've got a few GPUs laying around I could toss at it 24/7. Nothing too serious (HD7950, HD7850), but at least they wouldn't be laying in a drawer anymore.

    i thought the whole idea quark was that it wasn't supposed to be able to be mined with a gpu?

    You can mine it with your GPU but it is not a significant difference between GPU mining and CPU mining. So you can get as many khashes with CPU as the one who's mining with GPU.

    The purpose of its algo is to be resistant to ASIC's and other damn things that could make normal miners 'useless', because of the high hashrate you get with an ASIC.

    I would love to see the possibility to mine with ASIC's but at a caped kH/s rate for example. just so we can reduce the power consumption.
    I am mining at 420 kH/s with a Xeon x3430 2.40Ghz CPU using cpuminer v2
    I am not able to test any GPU mining for quark as my GTX 650M doesn't seems to work with CUDA computable version 3.0 but only 2.1 and there is no gpu-miner for quark that support bellow 3.0
