The NerdMiner v2 is a cool gadget that let you try to reach a bitcoin block with a small piece of hardware. It has the iconical form factor of a Bitmain S9 and consumes only 1W, costing you only 2$ a year to have it powered.
The main goal of this project is to let you learn more about bitcoin minery and to have a beautiful piece of hardware in your desktop.
The NerdMiner v2 implements Stratum protocol to mine on solo pool. Pool can be changed but originally works with web.public-cool.io. The miner is multicore and multithreads, each thread mine a different block template. After receiving a new job from pool trials the block in refreshed in order to avoid mining on old template.
Mining with the NerdMiner is considered a really difficult thing, It is considered a very unlikely task, because its mining power is so small that the chances of finding the block before another miner are extremely low. This product on its current state must be considered more a gadget than a miner.
