Yellowjacket 2.2 GH/s USB ASIC Miner

As with the LKETC USB Scrypt Miner I also wanted to rig up another Raspberry Pi to mine some Bitcoin again using a couple of Yellowjacket ASIC miners. These Yellowjackets are similar to the Nanofury.

Rikomagic troubles

After roughly 3 weeks having the Rikomagic MK06 running it started to act weird’ for lack of a better term. The device was experiencing a number of issues;

  • Network connection was not working, UTP or Wi-Fi, both could get an IP address but nothing seemed to be working
  • Also all of a sudden the Nova Launcher I had selected as default launcher wasn’t working anymore, but at least the original launcher (RKM_launcher V2) still worked.
  • and the device was responding very slowly to user actions

LKETC USB Scrypt Miner

Over a your ago I had bought an USB Scrypt miner via eBay. This miner is able to hash at about 144-270 kH/s, depending on the frequency the device is running at (it has a tiny switch on the end)

Remote Desktop Server - Windows 10 Home Edition

As mentioned in my article on the NEXXT PC Stick Windows 10 Home edition has no support for the Remote Desktop Server, only the client. So out-of-the-box there is no way to remotely access the NEXXT PC Stick.

A quikc search gave me two options to enable RDP server on Windows 10 Home edition

  • Modify termsrv.dll
  • Install RDP Wrapper Library

In general I don’t like to modify system files, this usually breaks more in the long run and you never know what issues you might run into when installing for instance updates from Microsoft. So RDP Wrapper Library was my obvious choice.

Getting verified

Just because it is possible I tried to get my twitter account @drexore verified. I submitted the request for verification on August 25th, 2016. Ans so the waiting started. I don’t really expect to my account to get the verified badge (Verified badge), but who knows maybe I get lucky .

I sort of expected to receive a DM or an email to the linked address, but nothing at all… The only way to get the status of your request (at least so it appears) is to perform the first steps of the verification request again.

Having played around with the Rikomagic MK06 for a couple of weeks I started looking for a variant running the Windows operating system.

I came across the NEXXT PC Stick which, to my surprise, is able to run Windows 10 and has reasonable specifications. Time to bring out the credit card again. This was a bit more expensive than the Rikomagic MK06 and set me back € 139 (via

My second surprise came when I received my package: The NEXXT PC Stick is designed in the Netherlands. Shouldn’t really matter but it still gave me a nice warm fuzzy feeling to see this on the back of the packaging.
