If anyone here was mining Pinkstar - PNKS

You need to swap your coins before the 27th May

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2723196.880
Thanks for the heads up! They were on and off with the swap for a while now. Didn't know if they were going to do it or not after all.

I have added this info to the main post in this thread for others to be aware of the swap.

I have added a new coin to the post in this thread - Triton. You can find more info on it in this announcement thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2944793.0

With a hash rate of about 150 h/s, you will get about 25 TRIT/day using the Cryptonight Lite V1 algo.

Just a heads up for the CPU mining crowd... you may want to checkout Webchain.  It appears to be a CPU only coin at this time with its on variant of Cryptonight.

Monoro V (XMV) forked off Monero couple of nights ago

It has the algo Cryptonight variant 1 aka Monero7

Announcement: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2947912.0

I've been using this pool : https://cryptoknight.cc/monerov/

It's only available on the altex exchange at the moment so best sitting on till it gets somewhere more popular.

Given the algo variations now I'd split you should include that too.

CN-Heavy: Haven, Loki, Ombre, Solace, Sumo

CN-variant 1: bbs, graft, intense, italocoin, lines, masari, monerov, stellite

CN-Alloy: Alloy

CN-Lite-ipbc: Ibpc

CN-Lite-variant1: Iridum, Triton, Turtlecoin

Unforked: crepcoin, dero, karbo, niobio, qwerty, xun, aeon, electroneum


Another coin is Iridium

Announcement : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2150442.0

I think it's have a resurgence after forking to Cn-lite variant 1

I mined 200 off https://cryptoknight.cc/iridium/# and sold them today and the price was up 150% on trade-ogre

I have seen a lot of users that want to start mining or have already started but do not know what to mine. I though of creating this thread by including all of the new CryptoNight coins that are worth while mining using your CPU and will get you a decent amount of coins in return.
I will maintain this thread and add more coins on it, feel free to bookmark if you like.

I think the average mining power of your low to mid level CPU is about ~100-150 h/s so, I will create a guide on what to mine and how to do it based on this hashing speed.
Note: With this hashing speed you will definitely loose money if you sell what you mine because electricity is expensive. This approach is going to work only if you're OK with the idea that their value will probably appreciate in time.

What coins to mine?

The most lucrative coins from a "low difficulty & good returns" perspective are:

  • Qwerty Coin (QWC) - you will get ~315,000 tokens/day
  • TurtleCoin(TRTL) - you will get ~3500 tokens/day
  • PinkStarCoin (PNKS) - you will get ~600 tokens/day - swap coins until May 27th
  • Stellite Coin (XTL) - you will get ~270 tokens/day
  • DinastyCoin (DCY) - you will get ~200 tokens/day
  • ByteCoin (BCN) - you will get ~26 tokens/day
  • CrepCoin (CREP) - you will get ~49 tokens/day
  • Intense Coin (ITNS) - you will get ~7 tokens/day
  • Fonero (FNO) - you will get ~9 tokens/day
  • Graft (GRFT) - you will get ~1 tokens/day
  • Electroneum (ETN) - you will get ~4 tokens/day
  • LeviarCoin (XLC) - you will get ~2 tokens/day
  • Dero (DERO) - you will get ~0.3 tokens/day
  • Alloy (XAO) - you will get ~15 tokens/day
  • Haven (XHV) - you will get ~0.4 tokens/day
  • Karbo (KRB) - you will get ~0.2 tokens/day
  • Sumokoin (SUMO) - you will get ~0.1 tokens/day
  • NioBioCash (NBR) - you will get ~20 tokens/day
  • Solace Coin (SOLACE) - you will get ~2000 tokens/day
  • Loki Coin (LOKI) - you will get ~0.4 tokens/day
  • Triton Coin (TRIT) - you will get ~25 tokens/day

What pool should I use?

Usually all of the legitimate pools will charge a fee, from my experience, the good ones charge up to 1%. None of the good ones are free.

The pools I use or heard they are good:

  • DCY - dcy.poolmining.us
  • BCN - bytecoin.uk
  • ETN, KRB, SUMO, ITNS, GRFT - easyhash.io
  • XLC - xlc.dark-mine.su
  • TRTL - turtlepool.space
  • DERO - pool.dero.live
  • XAO - cryptoknight.cc/alloy/
  • FNO - fno.cryptopool.space
  • XHV - xhv.luckypool.io
  • PNKS - pnks.poolmining.us
  • XTL - communitypool.stellite.cash
  • QWC - qwertycoin.site
  • CREP - crep.miner.rocks
  • NBR - nbr.4miner.me
  • SOLACE - solace.luckypool.io
  • LOKI - loki.miner.rocks
  • TRIT - cryptoknight.cc/triton

Where can I get a wallet address?

The best place to get a wallet address is on the website of the coin. I have also used FreeWallet or Jaxx but usually none of the new coins are supported in these.

The most secure wallets to use are the paper wallets, you can mine directly to them.
Note: Please do not use a wallet address from an exchange, you will most likely loose your mined coins.

What software to use for mining?

I am using Xmrig for mining. In my opinion this is the best & easy to use command line CPU miner.
Note: They charge a fee for mining which is between 1% - 5%. You can configure this to the amount you like to donate.

First you need to download the correct file from here: https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig/releases

You should have 3 files:

  • config.json
  • start.bat
  • xmrig.exe

The important part is the config.json file, this is the only file (read the comments in it too):
Code:
{
    "algo": "cryptonight",  // cryptonight (default) or cryptonight-lite
    "av": 0,                // algorithm variation, 0 auto select
    "background": false,    // true to run the miner in the background
    "colors": true,         // false to disable colored output    
    "cpu-affinity": null,   // set process affinity to CPU core(s), mask "0x3" for cores 0 and 1
    "cpu-priority": 2,   // set process priority (0 idle, 2 normal to 5 highest)
    "donate-level": 5,      // donate level, mininum 1%
    "log-file": null,       // log all output to a file, example: "c:/some/path/xmrig.log"
    "max-cpu-usage": 85,    // maximum CPU usage for automatic mode, usually limiting factor is CPU cache not this option.  
    "print-time": 60,       // print hashrate report every N seconds
    "retries": 5,           // number of times to retry before switch to backup server
    "retry-pause": 5,       // time to pause between retries
    "safe": false,          // true to safe adjust threads and av settings for current CPU
    "threads": 3,        // number of miner threads corresponds to the number of cores you CPU has, recommended 3 for quad core processors
    "pools": [
{
            "url": "<your_pool_address>",   // URL of mining server or: etn.fairhash.org:3333
            "user": "<your_wallet_address>",                        // username for mining server
            "pass": "x",                       // password for mining server, usually "x" or ""
            "keepalive": true,                 // send keepalived for prevent timeout (need pool support)
            "nicehash": true                  // enable nicehash/xmrig-proxy support
        }
    ],
    "api": {
        "port": 0,                             // port for the miner API https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig/wiki/API
        "access-token": null,                  // access token for API
        "worker-id": null                      // custom worker-id for API
    }
}

After you properly change config.json, you can start the miner by opening start.bat (on Windows). That's it!

Another mining app for CPU mining is XMR-STAK, you can use this as well, a guide on how to install it was provided by neosi1 here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2891680.msg33070715#msg33070715

A more detailed mining thread which showcases multiple mining apps (CPU & GPU) can be found here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2345911.0

Please let me know if you have questions/suggestions or feel free to share the coins you are mining with your CPU and could be added on this list.

The payment for mining is shown as the unit of tokens. However, it should be better to use BTC or ETH per day. That will make the profit clear.

Thanks for the detailed input will take a closer look tomorrow Smiley

It's interesting but would like to wait a bit to see if it catches on before adding it to the thread.

I don't think you understood what I'm trying to do here.

It's not about profitability as of right now, it's about profitability sometime in the future when the coin increases in value.

Added IRIDIUM to the main post Smiley

You can get about 2 tokens/day with a hash rate of about 150 h/s.

I am using this pool to mine it: https://cryptoknight.cc/iridium/

I've added a new coin to the main post of this thread called ITALO coin.

ITA is doing well at this point, it is listed on some exchanges and it's currently worth $0.11/coin.

With a hash rate of about 150 h/s in CN-v7 you can get about 2.4 ITA/day.

I have seen some questions in this thread about:
+Which coins has forked?
+Which coins are ASIC resistant?
+What algorithm are they currently on to properly set it up for mining?

To answer all of these questions I have created another thread here:    
[CryptoNight] Forked coins, ASIC resistance and current algorithms
and also updated the main post in this thread to include a link to it.

Be sure to check it out Smiley

I've added a new coin to the OP, it's called ELYA and you can get about 92 tokens per day with a hash rate of about 150 h/s.

I'm using this pool for it: https://cryptoknight.cc/elya/ as it seems it's the largest available.

Happy mining Cheesy

Thanks a lot for the kind words Smiley Let me know if you have any issues setting it up.


In the mean time, I have added another coin to the main post of this thread: OMBRE
This is a CryptoNight Heavy coin that will get you about 60 tokens/day with a hash rate of 150 h/s.

The pool I'm using right now is: cryptoknight.cc/ombre
