Since the launch of ZCash, the difficulty looks to have decreased a little.
So I wanted to try and mine some dash with my GTX 970 on windows. Unfortunatelly all the links are broken.

Does anyone have a good guide to mine Dash on Windows with working links?
Also do you think it is still profitable?

Thanks

You can use: minergate v6.6
Search on google and you will find.
Easy to use.

Can't say how much prof. you will make.

Yeah, easy to use and easily a scam. I searched on google and found that, too.

Anyone else, that has an account older than one day? Thanks.

There is just Not a lot of enthusiasm or helpful information about mining DASH except the Baikal page and the Pineda page.
HUGE volumes of information to mine eth !
Also Monero, and recently, zcash.

True Story! Is mining DASH a secret society or something? If the idea of DASH is to be used, how is there so little useful info and so little newer than 2014??

Cpu-Mining: Is it profitable...probably not (anymore) ...I dunno about GPU -mining. I tried it, but my Geforce780 just gets to hot to quickly in my iMac.....and I don’t like to fry it...
Minergate software won’t let you mine Dash btw....

For Cpu-mining I’d suggest running on Linux (seems I get better hash rate), and play around with the some different mining software. But don’t expect profit from it, unless you have a lot cpu’s you can cook.

Sometimes I use Miningrigrentals.com: Basically you can rent a miner for a specific algorithm and point it at a pool of your choice. The hardware is owned by users, not the site-owners. If there are issues, you can get refund etc, they have their own pool too but I never use it.
But for mining Dash it is not profitable either or you should find a person offering his gear for an extended amount of time at a low low (probably a typo) price.

Hate to say that in a Decentralized Crypto-world the mining is centralized by the peeps that could afford it, before there even was cryptocurrency...(Real world cliche: the rich get richer, the poor.......blablablabla...)

BUT:

You can however mine some shitcoin for a while, go to exchange site, wait for a whale to pump that not-so-useless-coin to higher regions....surf the wave! Get out of the tube BEFORE the whale makes a dump and dives back to the depths of the crypto-ocean.
By that I mean: Sell those coins for a high price before they get even more useless

With the PROFIT you made >>> BUY DASH or whatever coin you like!!! (Notice how I used the word “profit” without a negative word in front of it :p)

This probably is not a lot of help, but at least you got some sort of an answer. If you can afford it, buy a Baikal miner or some other piece of hardware....dunno what all the brands are......

...Good Luck...

SO what's the most efficient GPU card to mine with? And how much more efficient are the ASICs in comparison

Here is a hardware comparison list for mining.
I believe there is another one of these more all-round on the net somewhere...
It also has some more info on optimized settings and such....but that kinda depends on your entire configuration,
cause when I tried the one for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4GDDR 5, computer said: “no”...
