Solo-mining low-value, low-difficulty altcoins on an i7... likely to get any coins?

I'd be hoping that if I keep switching and holding on to as many coins as possible, one might take off in value.

Stupid or not?

CPU mining - three approaches:
1. CPU mine a coin the first few week of its existence if no GPU miner exists to mine it.  Get in early is key.  Monitor the ANN-section for any new coins and consider mining those just launched.
2. If you believe that a coin will go to the moon within the next few months/year then you can mine it with cpu.
3. Find a coin that is cpu-mineable only - like XMG (Magi) - and mine it.
If I were to start cpu mining now, I would mine XMR or BCN with xmr-stak-cpu miner in Linux (with huge pages enabled - this keeps my cpus warm during winter :-)).

Myriad Coin - using the Yescrypt algo is good for cpu right now. I mostly trade to make profits but mine myriad to make up for any loses, if any, i would have in a day. I switch between Aeon and Myriad using two laptops and two tablets with free electricity and can make some good coin.

You can also try Coin Magi, but recently i found it not to be as profitable.

Zcoin - is another coin that is mine-able with cpu. I used to mine this coin about 6 months ago and would get killer profits from it. It is now getting taken over by GPU miners but it can still be mined on CPU.

BitSend - Uses Xevan algo. Isn't as profitable as Aeon or Myriad but can still be mined on a CPU.

Aeon - Uses Cryptonight-light which is faster than the regular cryptonight algo. I like mining Aeon because it seems to never slow down or get taken over by GPU miners. It is always a consistent profit.

GlobalBoostY - another yescrypt coin but i have recently seen a falling out from the community with this coin.

Hope this helps.

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.

Will i make anything if i used my AMD X4 860k, i get about 115 hashes on AEON.... using Minergate.
Please tell me, if for  VRM i can actually make profit ?
Thank you

Aeon is good for cpu mining. Especially when you use multiple computers. Make sure you use linux as you'll get a five times better hashrate for some reason. I would warn against using the minergate program, it is easy to set up, and the hashrate isn't too much less but good luck getting a withdrawl from them. I had mined a bit with minergate and still waiting for a withdrawl for 2 months.

You might also check out Nexus. CPU mining is not that profitable anymore but can be done, and the price of Nexus is expected to rise.

Try Monero; you can even use Nicehash for it, so it's super easy as well as being the biggest CPU centric coin by a long shot. Also, AEON is very profitable right now and BitSend is a good CPU coin that I think has a nice future ahead of it. There are other coins that can be mined with CPU, but those are the only 3 I have tried that I liked for CPU mining myself.

You can mine the following coins with your CPU/LAPTOP :


XMR (monero)
BCN (bytecoin)
FCN (fantomcoin)
XDN (digitalnote)


You can also mine Ethereum, AEON, DASH and Quazarcoin, but i dont think they will give you any profit.
The above coins may also not give you any profit depending on your CPU.

I suggest to try RIC (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=446703.0)  Pool http://ublock.it/

One Xeon E5-2670 give me almost 2$ per day.

Wow, that's a pretty big amount, is that true? Is it just a hoax? It looks like you should provide some proof of your income, which you say 2 $ / day,If it proves maybe I will follow you.

Nick same as here. But pool statistic show around half less Ric/day than personal statistic. Ofc, I have not only one processor.

An AMD Ryzen 1700X @ 4.0 ghz with 2150 H/s can make over $5 a day mining AEON at current prices.  https://aeon-pool.com/#  --- My i7 6700K does ~615 H/s at stock settings = about $1.50 per day on Aeon.
