Probably monero... Which CPU you have?

I have a low-end laptop right now. I have an Acer Aspire ES1-431 Laptop with 2GB memory Windows 10. I am not really tech savvy but I think its worth the shot.

Even with free electricity, you're wasting your time. The only chance you have of making any profit is from long term appreciation. In which case trading would be more effective than trying to mine with with a low end cpu and competing against the hash from GPU's, ASICS and botnets.

Currently, the best one seems to be Aeon (2x to 4x higher hashrates when mining Aeon compared to mining Monero due to the cryptolight algorithm). You can still mine Monero and other cryptonotes, it's still profitable even with the power-hungry FX series.

It's also possible that I've overlooked some golden nugget for CPU mining, I'm curious what others might have to say.

Some altcoin mining with CPU such as Monero still profitable if you have modern CPU which have high performance, low TDP or have good price/performance.
But with your low-end laptop, you can't make profit even with free electricity and hardware.

Well, comparing it to claiming on BTC faucets, is it worth it? I have traded and lost about 200k sats and don't want to dive again until I learn trading. I have tried gambling too and I lost everything I won.

I'm going to guess that you would get around 250 hashrate in Monero, maybe less. Somewhere close to $120 a year at $0.10/kw/h power costs. Download the Nicehash Miner program and let it run the benchmark for your CPU to find the exact hashrate to expect. www.nicehash.com

VeriumReserve (VRM) is a decent CPU-only mining coin you might want to take a look at. I've been mining it the last couple of weeks. There is a pool and client downloads at http://vrm.poolinat0r.com.

So, with a low-end laptop you can't do anything. You have to buy a new rig with ryzen 5 or 7 (depending on your budget) if you want to mine a CPU coin, however amd launched the rx 5xx serie that is only a rebrand of the 4xx, the price of rx 4xx will decrease significantly why don't you consider also GPU mining?

Hi,

ist there a coin profitable to mine with cpu?

Thanks

there are only verium and zoin not much else, and i think there is also magi but was delisted recently from poloniex, and without an exchange will die quickly, cpu coin are always very bad and not recommended, but you cna build now a good cpu rig and have some profit, check the verium thread there is a guy with a cpu rig

What's the difference between CPU and GPU mining? I thought it was just ASIC and CPU mining..

Hi,

ist there a coin profitable to mine with cpu?

Thanks

i can give you soem coins which are profitable with cpu, but you need many cpu ro cpu rig to mien them with good return, these coins are magi verium, zoin and monero, all the other are not cpu friendly, but be aware of botnet that are plague for this coins and quickly ruin your profit

Can you say the components and the hash rate?

H81 pro btc R2.0 mobo
G1840 cpu
6x zotac 1070 mini
8gb corsair ram
EVGA GQ-1000 psu
16gb USB key  https://www.amazon.com/Lexar-JumpDrive-16GB-Flash-Drive/dp/B00S5V5PMY

29.1 H/s 6 hour average XMR @ nanopool ( at current rates with 10c kwh electric the cpu will generate $16 profit a year, and roi on its own in ~3 years )  Note cpu mining hashrate is all over the place (less frequent shares); so it takes a while to get a good idea of a cpu's average hashrate.

2655.4 Sol/s 6 hour average ZEC @ nanopool ( all 6x cards cc200, mc400, powerlimit 125 on nvOC )

using 880 watts at the wall

Currently only running +cpu on a few of my rigs, but all have been stable for over 24 hours; so I will deploy +cpu mining on all my rigs tonight / tomorrow.  I have an i3 on the way to test as well.

If all my rigs are stable with +cpu mining I will add it as an option to the next version of nvOC.  Also looking for alternative cpu mined coins to try; if anyone has any recommendations.

Isn't mining counterproductive both with cpu and gpu? I've noticed sometimes that GPU's hashrate decrease if CPU is mining.

Isn't mining counterproductive both with cpu and gpu? I've noticed sometimes that GPU's hashrate decrease if CPU is mining.

It depends primarily on what OS you are using.  If you using windows it will never be a good idea.  On linux, depending on how many cores and what intensity you are using; and the gpu mining client you are using, it is sometimes ok.  Granted the resulting hashrate from cpu mining as such is nothing like that from all out cpu mining.
