I wonder why no one mentioned Worktips coin yet  Angry Angry

ANN THREAD - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3086019.0
WEBSITE - http://worktips.info/

It's a great cn-lite v1 coin for small miners, community growing every day, great devs.

Theoretically it's better to mine than turtlecoin because you get more for your 1sat but in practice you can sell trtl but goodluck selling wtips...

There's 50 btc worth of wtips for sale at tradeogre at 1 sat. Given 1 btc is worth 99,800,000wtips. That's a bigger queue than I know how to say.

I mined it a few months back when the only pool available was their official one. At that time they had a lot of issues with their pool in the sens that it was banning you after a a few days for some weird reasons.
So, decided not to add it here until they fix their pool issues.

Are you mining it right now? Have you had any issues with it recently?

Which CPU?
I think I missed your reply to the thread.  Sad

I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly. If you're trying to find out which CPU would be best then the Ryzen family of processors from AMD is the best for mining at the moment.
They are also releasing a new CPU which will be by far the the best one for mining: https://www.techradar.com/news/amd-ryzen-threadripper-2nd-generation

For example

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950x ( 800-1000 $)   1525 H/s
AMD Ryzen 1700X   ( 330 $)   725 H/s

is it profitable to make such investments in mining? I think not.
If there is a given processor, you can receive 15-20 dollars of additional income per month. And to buy this processor for the mining is unreasonable.

It's easier to look for cheap old server boards with 2 processors and mine on it.

I've added a new coin that can be mined using your average CPU called BLOC.

BLOC is a CryptoNight-Heavy coin that can bring you 0.9 tokens/day while using a hash rate of about 150 h/s.

I've also added in their official pool: bloc-mining.us

Happy mining Wink

This actually looks like a decent project with a possible future. Going to mine a bag for hodling.

Yes, I agree, hence the 150 h/s hashing rate I'm promoting here as an average default value for average CPUs, but I wasn't sure what is he looking for.

Some people prefer to switch to CPU mining rather than GPU mining since GPUs were/are hard to find on the market.
If you compare the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950x with a 1080ti then the hash rates are kind of the same, the price as well if you're lucky but normally it exceeds that amount.

The issue is you can't buy a 1080ti since it's always out of stock Smiley Not to mention you can use that CPU for other stuff as well.

If you mine a crypto currency with a hashrate  150 h/s, then it does not even pay for electricity costs Smiley
about AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950x. I found 3 models on the market

I found 3 models on the market

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 16 core (16-Core) CPU with 3.40 GHz
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X 12 core (12-Core) CPU with 3.50 GHz
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X 8 core (Octa Core) CPU with 3.80 GHz

These processors have a special TR4 socket. Motherboards for this socket cost $ 400-500. + the cost of a cooler is 40-50 dollars ( 180 W TDP  Smiley )



beauty  Roll Eyes

Therefore, to compare AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950Х and 1080ti for mining is unrealistic.

The whole idea of this thread is to mine coins that will eventually increase in price. It is stated in the first post (with red) that you will probably pay more for electricity than you get in coins if you try to sell them right away.
Please read the OP again.

These processors have a special TR4 socket. Motherboards for this socket cost $ 400-500. + the cost of a cooler is 40-50 dollars ( 180 W TDP  Smiley )

Therefore, to compare AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950Х and 1080ti for mining is unrealistic.
The comparison I have done is at the hash rate & price level for the two components not the connected devices that are required for them to run.

Since the 1080TI (~$1000) has a CryptoNight hash rate of about 830 h/s and an older & cheaper AMD Ryzen 1700X has 725 h/s (~$330) (like you said previously) then I think it's comparable and a good alternative. Not to mention that you can get the CPU anywhere and the GPU is harder to find in shops/online.

Nonetheless, let's keep this discussion on topic (CPU mining guide & coins) as there are endless threads about this.

You write that the GPU is harder to find in shops/online.  It's not true. All retailers and secondary market are overloaded with video cards.
I think that the CryptoNight algorithm has nothing to do with the CPU. If it becomes profitable, there will immediately come a lot of GPUs.
Most coins from 1 post are decentralized digital money. It is based on CryptoNote anonymous technology. It is forks monero or coins with a similar idea and technology. And to mine them on the CPU hoping for a pamp like a game of roulette Cheesy
The only chance to make money on the CPU is to find new coins on algorithms where there is no GPU.

It's clear to me that your crypto currency knowledge is limited. It's amazing that you are a hero member and still don't have a clue on how you can make money here.  Sad

Nonetheless, I wish you all the best. Smiley

You can look there what is the most profitable cryptonight coin.

https://www.coincalculators.io
I understand you are promoting your website but, in essence, this is spam. You need to look for another way of promoting it which does not break the forum rules.

On the other hand, what does your website bring new to the table when comparing it to other websites like http://whattomine.com/ ?

You will see the difference if you enter the web site instead off making an aggressive comment.

I just tried to help. No need to promote website.

I have gone to the website but could not find any new things when comparing it to whattomine.com. That's why I asked what I have missed.

I could have just reported your post as spam to the admins but did not do that and was giving you the benefit of the doubt. It seems I was mistaken...  Undecided

Maybe you do not look to the right place.

it would be cool if you write marketcaps of these coins here with each one of them. It will make for a better decision which coin to mine or invest into. But good list nonetheless

Most GPU miners are not profitable if you have to pay $0.15/kWh. So there is a overload of GPU now.

Market caps are not relevant to mining since we're not mining for profitability. Plus they also change a lot so, they will be hard to maintain.

Most GPU miners are not profitable if you have to pay $0.15/kWh. So there is a overload of GPU now.
Again, this is not mining for immediate profit.

I've added a new coin to the main page of this thread: Quantum (QRL)

QRL is a cryptonight V7 coin that can bring you 0.35 QRL per day with a hash rate of about 150 h/s.

Currently there is a lot of activity related to this coin and I believe it can be a winner long term Smiley

Happy mining Smiley
