Monero is one of the top privacy coins on the market. It currently resides in 10th place on the market cap list, and it has one of the most engaged communities of developers and users around. Mining Monero is one of the most user-friendly mining experiences out there. Monero uses an algorithm called cryptonight. This algorithm can also be efficiently mined on CPUs and GPUs. Even regular users who don’t have special mining hardware can engage in Monero’s mining community. Of course, Monero isn’t the only coin that uses Cryptonight. Other options are Karbo, Electroneum, Bytecoin, and SumoKoin.
XMR-Stak is perhaps best known as a cryptocurrency mining software for Monero, but did you know that it also supports other altcoins? Indeed, XMR-Stak is quite versatile and can mine a handful of other coins that use the Cryptonight and Cryptonight Lite algorithms. Here’s the full list of cryptocurrencies that XMR-Stak supports: The XMR-Stak team […]
Most miners find solo mining no longer profitable and cloud mining notoriously tricky, all while large-scale industrial mining is out of the reach of most people’s purse strings. In contrast, decentralized platforms short-circuit risks, offer definite income, and are both transparent and accessible. We would like to thank the team at OddoCash for their contributions to […]
Simply put, the Antminer E3 is a super-powerful mining rig that could potentially put an end to GPU mining of Ethereum before the other thing that many assumed would eventually kill GPU mining: the move to proof-of-stake. But that’s an entirely separate conversation. For now, let’s focus on ASICs. ASICs, for those unaware, are dedicated […]
