Smartlaunch Mining Management
Crypto Mining has emerged as a potential revenue stream for gaming centers. Computers that are running software programs to create crypto money are said to be mining. Smartlaunch Mining Management makes it convenient for gaming center owners to test crypto mining at their centers, gather data to evaluate the revenue potential of mining, evaluate the costs associated with mining, and understand the losses that unauthorized mining could be causing them.
Run a test of crypto mining
- Go to the Smartlaunch Server Settings – > Additional Features – > Mining Management
Click on the Terms and Conditions link to open the Beta Tester Agreement, and after reading, tick the ‘Accept’ check box if you agree with the terms and conditions.
Check the checkbox ‘Enable Mining’. Mining will start on computers that are not occupied by customers. That’s it, you are mining!
Monitoring Your Center’s Mining Performance
Allow 15-20 minutes for your mining stats to start appearing on the web page that you open by clicking on the link next to ‘Mining Performance’.
Go to Smartlaunch Server – > Additional Features – > Mining Management. Click on the link next to ‘Mining Tracker’ to view your gaming center’s performance. Your mining stats will be displayed on the Dashboard (see image below)
In the top left-hand corner, you see that 15 computers are mining. 4 computers are Inactive, i.e. they are not mining, because 4 customers are logged in.
Next, you see ‘Hashrate’ which is the computing power of the 15 computers that are actively mining. You see that the Current hash rate is 499.4 MH/s. ‘MH/s’ is short for ‘Mega Hashes per second’ which means that 15 million hashes are being computed each second. One hash is defined as two computations of the SHA256 algorithm).
The hash rate is an important key value. It tells you how fast your computers are at mining, the mining speed. You get an estimate of the amount of crypto that will be mined at your mining speed under ‘Estimated Earnings’.
