GPU miner for YACoin released!

For those of you who know me, you know that i'm rather into YAC. It uses a completely different algorithm from Bitcoin and Litecoin (and all of litecoins clones). Its known as Scrypt-jane or chacha.

Anyways, since its release, yac was a CPU only coin. Recently a GPU mining app (modified CGminer) has been released for YACoin.

Get it here! 

I personally mine on yac.ltcoin.net, and I have had nothing but good experience with them.

  1. Actually, scrypt-jane is just a slightly more flexible version of scrypt. The YAC developer misused the term.

    The yak network is running SHA3 (Keccak, a collison free/enhanced version of RadioGatĂșn) with 'scrypt-jane' (it's a very simplistic implementation of scrypt-jane).

    chacha was just thrown in to replace the salsa function, a change of no benefit and little significance.
