    Miguel, i tried all coins digipools.org and Egem to and nothing, hash 0, chip xx. Can you tell me, what firmware you have and how E3 is configured?

    egem.digipools.org:4202
    Worker: [YOUR EGEM ADDRESS]
    Password: x

    Maksim, 

    You are dealing with the Bitmain Antminer E3 being too cold to boot up issue.

    I will guarantee you, warm up your miner room, put the exhaust of a already hashing miner in front of your E3.... you might have to get the room up around 80+ F. But once the miners are warm enough they will start hashing in about 7 minutes.
    It is here on this forum also:
    Bitmain E3 Problem - Prohashing Mining Pool Forums

    I have been testing different chains & every time this happens, warm room, reboot a couple times it will come on line within 7 min.

    Firmware v540 & I also am mining EtherGem (EGEM) Mining Pool egem.digipools.org with no issues.
    ***Firmware v560 is for Ethereum BLOCKCHAIN ONLY PER SUPPORT.
    Update firmware to v540 to continue hashing ETHash algorithm for other chains.

    I can prove the cold temperature bug with out any doubt & I am recording many videos I will put out on YouTube here shortly showing the issue

    Thanks Miguel & Tthompson7, It's only worked when you change the firmware from 5.6 to 5.4.

    Great it worked, Raj!

    Appart from EtherGem, Ether-1 seems to be OK to mine (I haven't tried myself). Here is the updated list of coins we can still mine (ignore the 5 first, those are Ethereum which we can sadly not mine).

    Did anyone trying connecting miningrigrentals to rent this out. I have 25 of them.

    Listed two units in ebay and sold for $600. Still thinking what to do with these machines, L3+ is making better than this one :)

    Maksim, Great to hear!!
    You can add the 2nd & 3rd pools in, that is fine.

    The temp thing is most important if you are in winter like a lot of USA is at the moment.
    Took us all here a couple weeks to put it all together & figure it out
    Spread the word & thank you for confirming you are working if temps are high enough

    Hey TalesDuck, you need an EGEM address, not an ETH. You can open one at https://www.mycrypto.com/account

    Hello everybody! Today I tried different settings and pools, but I could not in any way mine Ethereum on firmware 5.4

    Is it possible? If possible, please send me a screenshot of the correct settings. Thank you!

    Hi Nerovalentine, 

    Unfortunately, the DAG file is now over 4 GB and Antimner E3 cannot mine Ethereum. Ethereum Classic forked, and is no longer mineable. Right now, our best choice is EtherGem (please check previous messages).

    Hii,  

    I hve tried just baikailmine but it does not work. But EtherGem is also rising with ETH. ETH will surerlly rise more so EtherGem will be more profitable. Sadly, i cant mine right now but hope am gonna set it all ASAP.

    I hadn't run my E3s for awhile and finally got them settled and plugged them in and was not able to mine ETH. I upgraded the firmware provided by Bitmain but still nothing. The miners are online and the stratum pool is sending work but no hashing at all. I looked at the ETH block height level which is now 11,690,060. There was a post last year stating that even with the new firmware, once the block height reached 11,400,000 the E3s won't be able to mine ETH after that.

    Hey guys, 

    I tried to set my E3 back to EGEM, used pool from digipool, used my EGEM adress from MEW and set pass to x. I was mining EGEM like a month ago, but now it wont hash. I let it run for an hour, then i changed pool to callisto and still nothing. Im scared i fired something up.

    ALL - I have confirmed if you can install the ETCHash Bitstream - Antminer E3's WILL MINE ETC Ethereum Classic

    Here are the steps to do it - See the additional longer post for step by step for multiple E3 miners... it absolutely works!!!  See image :)

    Did anyone try mining NUKO or ETHO using E3?

    Thank you for the EGEM solution. It worked for me with an estimated revenue of $3.5/day.

    It's at least something.

     

    Will be trying ETC V3 solution a little later but this works for now. Thought I had thrown $500 down the drain.

    Not sure if you're all aware (probably are) but one way to work around the cold issue is to wind the fans down to 50% via hidden menu on web interface. If you don't know about the hidden menu here's a link on how to access it.

    Many thanks to all those who contributed.
