You could try the Magi (XMG) coin. It has a unique algorithm (cpu only, forever) that is specifically designed to be mineable on an average cpu. Block rewards decrease as overall hashpower increases which discourages big miners. It has a pretty stable price at around the 3500 sat range. If you have a decent computer gridcoin may also be profitable.

Thanks. Do you have experience mining this coin? Using i5 for example how much coins I can get?

I've heard some people say that laptop mining is fine.

But I wonder how quickly your battery will need to be recharged in that case.

I have an old i5 Ivy Bridge (2013) and was able to get between 0.75-1 XMG a day. If you have a newer model i5 and a desktop you should be able to get better returns. There is no coin that I can mine profitably with my computer so I just run BOINC for gridcoins at a loss in the name of science.

Edit: Meant Ivy Bridge, not Sandy Bridge.

I used my laptop Sony Vaio E Core i5, is it ok for mining by CPU? Max Hashing Power is 40h/s Sad
what coin are you mining with your laptop? it would be nice to start mining I think is very exciting, but it cost lot electricity

It's probably not worth mining on a laptop unless you have a new model i7 cpu and only run cpu-friendly algorithms like cryptonight or the coins I mentioned above. I do it just for fun even though I'm operating at a loss but I wouldn't run all cores at 100% for fear of overheating. Just be sure to monitor your temps and back off one of the cores if they're too high.

Hi,

ist there a coin profitable to mine with cpu?

Thanks

That would mostly depend on your electricity price. It eats up 50 to 80% of the income. I sometimes think that all this business has been invented by them  Roll Eyes

all the cpu coin finally will have GPU mining , so i think cpu is useless ,  I even can not find a coin that

only cpu , maybe some coin can only use cpu mining at begin

Magi coin is CPU only since 2014 and is actually less profitable to mine with a GPU than CPU. So everyone is CPU mining Grin

FWIW I have killed 13 laptops with CPU mining.

They simply overheat when being powered on and working hard for a few min now.

half of them simply don't power on anymore.

Then again;  I had them in a pile on a countertop;  no real consideration for ventilation.

Its not worth laptop mining in the end;  the hardware cost over what you get out of it... is not close to being anywhere near a "ROI"..

If you have an old laptop; and there is a cpuminer that works with your architecture;  and you want it to sit there and make massive amounts of heat for a significantly reduced typical hashrate output;  go for it.  Most laptops consume ~60w or less if they have a mobile variant of the cpu used...


But for the most part;  you are fighting for less than a penny a day; at the cost of probably $0.30/day...

IMO mining monero using XMR most profitable at this time
bu its always wasted your time when you want to mine with cpu

I think it is not good time for mining. Diff increase, Hashrate decrease, coin loss its price, no profitalbe. Sad

i just upgrade my last desktop computer cpu, all my computers have now an fx8300 doing 370 to 400h  definitely worth the upgrade, cpu will be paid back in less than a year,probably less than 6 month (if sell on a pump), unless something bad happen with monero, and if you don't autoexchange and keep the monero's for a couple of month/year it s definitely a good profitability

AEON is pretty good for CPU mining. It has like 4x times higher hashrate than Monero. You can find some benchmarks in my guide thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2294444.0

Minexcoin is a good coin for CPU and GPU mining. Here is the bitcointalk post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1847292.0

I am mining with 3/4 CPU power of and AMD FX 4350 getting 0.1 MNX per 6 hours which equals to 20 cents per hour(200 sols/s)(Minexcoin Stratum Pool).
Not to mention they also have a staking bank.
They are being listed on Livecoin.net on 1st of November with a starting price of 0.0023 BTC/coin.

AEON is pretty good for CPU mining. It has like 4x times higher hashrate than Monero.
Not sure what you're saying here. AEON's network total hashrate right now is ~ 15 MH/s. XMR's network is ~ 236 MH/s. If you meant the kind of mining hashrate you get with the same hardware, then also no — AEON is ~ 2x the hashrate for the same cpu/gpu compared to monero: a typical 4-core i7 hashes XMR at ~ 300+ H/s, and AEON at ~ 700-750 H/s. An AMD Polaris card is ~ 700-800 H/s on XMR, and 1500-1600 H/s on AEON.
