1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Cryptonight / Cryptonote - On GPUs and ASICs and profitability on: March 15, 2018, 10:39:14 AM
There are a few new ASICs released for mining the coins based on cryptonight/cryptonote protocol. I'm listing the coins that can be mined with GPUs (or conversely ASICs), with some profit as we go forward.There are some coins that claim and promote asic resistance, so there will be forks and updates and this thread could be a good place to track the mining choices. On the other side of the table, the difficulty for some coins will rise exponentially making it difficult to profit with GPUs. Also, while there is discrepancy in profitability of a small GPU rig vs a large one on cryptonight coins, it certainly is not on the scale of a few ASICs or a farm, so focus is on possibility of any profitability in future. Please feel free to correct and update as necessary.

* Updated: List as of May 03, 2018, will add coins as I find correct information (or sources from comments)

** The column "Coin" lists the Cryptonote coins

*** The column "GPU" is to determine if it is still profitable to mine with GPUs

**** The column "ASIC resistant" is to confirm the stance of the coin devs/team on ASIC resistance. If the team are actively working and updating, the column should say "Yes".
If the coin promotes ASIC resistance, but there is no update yet the column should be "Maybe", else "No"

***** I will update as much frequently as I can, after confirming the sources and will add them here

****** Disclaimer: This is neither an advertisement for the ASICs nor the coins per say, just information that can be useful for GPU miners. Please do not consider this as a definitive guide or advice on which coins to mine, but a source of information. Do confirm the facts and if possible help keep the list updated

            [1] Although they have claimed the Anti-ASIC stance, they mentioned will follow footsteps of monero, so no definite timeline yet.
            [4] Update: Seems there will be a hard fork on May 30

                  [2] The response of the team is wait and see how it affects, so I'm not positive they will do anything before the miners start mining.

                 [3] From the thread seems like they will change if it affects the coin,
                       for now they it's wait and see how things go approach.
                 Update(Mar 22): Seems like they are testing out the fork:

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / Altcoin and investment on: February 17, 2018, 02:44:32 AM
Being a newbie, I'm looking for a good direction on learning about the markets and trading. How would you decide which ICO to invest in? Cryptocurrency is too volatile, but so there is still many people who go into investment that goes even in the newest coins which are similar (not same) in the functionality that they offer (e.g. anonymity). What is the possibility on any of these coins (or digital currency in general) being successful (or profitable)? I'm also not clear on how does the value of coin inflate or deflate; especially when the flow is controlled by the developers?

tl;dr Any resources or pointers on the topic are appreciated.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Mining rig OS on: February 09, 2018, 02:58:25 AM
What would be the best operating system for a AMD (2 x Vega56) and Nvidia(2 x 1080ti) mining rig? I'm planning to add a max of 2-4 more cards in future. On googling I got many scenarios of failures on different steps and am curious on how to build this rig (first one for me!)
