Hardware is an inherent part of cryptocurrency mining – the stronger system specifications you have, the higher your hashrate and therefore chances for block solving are. That’s why it so important for both solo and pool-involved miners to check out the latest hardware news – both ASICs and CPU/GPU.
Have you been experimenting with mining and are ready to take it to the next level? Maybe you’ve been mining with a laptop or desktop CPU or maybe you are completely new to mining. Either way, this tutorial will show you, step-by-step how to build, configure, and maintain an effective and profitable mining rig.
CryptoNight is a proof-of-work hashing algorithm developed to suit a regular PC with CPU-based computing principles. It originates from CryptoNote protocol that requires 2 Mb per instance. A megabyte of internal memory is an almost unacceptable size for a modern ASIC pipeline, so the consensus is meant to be ASIC resistant. However, some of you […]
Choosing between GPU and ASIC hardware, keep in mind that If you’re OK to stick to one coin for the long run and you have an expensive equipment as well as an access to low-cost electricity – ASICs are for you. However, If you want flexibility and opportunity to mine different coins, GPUs are the […]
Are you interested in mining cryptocurrencies? Are you already mining but still unclear about all of the components at work? Mining is an important and integral part of any “proof-of-work” cryptocurrency. Without mining, there would be no blockchain ledger and the digital currency in question would have no value. So the mining process actually drives […]
So you’ve decided to start mining your first crypto coin. Welcome! The cryptocurrency world is big and it can seem overwhelming when you first begin. There are many coins to choose to mine, many software miners, and many mining pools to choose from. Let’s address some of these issues and provide some solutions to the […]
Each day people get more interested in cryptocurrency. The boom of the moment is to get the reward for mining, but everyday mining gets more complicated if you do not have the money to invest in hardware like ASIC miners or GPUs rigs.
With cloud mining a remote datacenter with shared processing power is utilized in the process of bitcoin mining. Cloud mining can be useful for those who aren’t technically minded, those who don’t want to run their own software, and in locations where the cost of electricity is high. Initial set up cost of a bitcoin mining […]
