So this past week my computer hard drive was overwritten when I was trying to write a Raspian Image to a SD card, unfortunately. A lot of my programs are gone but some of my data is in the process of being recovered. After the initial shock from this, I realized I needed a new way to run the mining proxy for my ASIC Block Erupter Cube. I couldn’t even start my PC, so I turned to my handy 35 dollar Raspberry Pi computer.

After doing some research, I downloaded the proxy on a Rasp Pi, connected it to the wifi network associated with my miner, changed the IP address from my PC to the Rasp pi’s, started the proxy and to my surprise it actually started hashing! I then took the New Trenton portable charger and connected it to the Rasp Pi to make (uh-hum) The Mobile Raspberry Pi Mining Proxy for an ASIC MINER Block Erupter Cube. The cube is averaging around 20 -22 GH/S while running on the Pi. It ran much better on my PC, around 32-38 GH/S. But it is still cool that as long as it is connected to the same WiFi network as the cube it will run the proxy from a mobile pi.
