    Default What does DAG mean in mining?

    What does DAG mean in mining?-dag-mining-jpg

    DAG is a directed acyclic graph. It is used in all digital coins using Ethash, such as Ethereum, Musiccoin, Ethereum Classic, Ubiq, Expanse and other cryptographic currencies to provide a PoW (Proof of Work). The DAG file is created at each operating level and increases in step size.

    It is crucial to know what the current size of the DAG file is, and how big it will be in the near future, since it has a major impact on coins extraction speed. The DAG file is placed directly in the VRAM memory of the graphics card. However, if the DAG file is larger than the memory of the video card, then this one will become useless. To know what the future size of the DAG will be, we can use a calculator or consult the table on specialized sites to know the end of the exploitation with a certain graphic card.
