So many wrong posters here saying that CPU mining is not profitable. If you have a good CPU and do your research you can make $2+ per day after power costs; even $1 a day after power costs is worth it for a part that you need to have anyways. I would not build an entire PC for CPU mining only, but if you need a PC for other tasks, or are building a mining rig it's worth considering buying a good CPU in order to mine with it. The AMD Ryzen series are wonderful CPU miners and can pay for themselves as quickly as some GPUs you may buy to mine with.

Many miners don't want competition and are afraid of rising difficulty of mining so they always answer no if anybody asks if mining is profitable. I think you still can earn money if more people start mining your coins because the price will rise with increased popularity. You get less coins but each coin is worth more.

With a good processor, you can try the very promising investment coin for Kalkulus. You can see the project on the official thread of the forum. If you do not want to search, you can see my signature.

Only some very new coins with big hope rising in the future. Look for freelabit digitalnote and other cryptonight coins

If you got lots of cpu power you can get some profit of this currently.

I have 3 idle servers with a total of 6 physical processors that I want to put to use, electricity is free. I need recommendations on the best CPU coin to mine with the servers. I've looked into MNX and XMR but can't figure out the best route to go...

In my opinion, this is a meaningless occupation at the end of 2017. You need more power, only the CPU power is now too low.

It is difficult to assess the payback of mining... To make mining profitable, you have to invest in good hardware. If you try to mine on CPU of your laptop, then you will get profit in the form of a burned device

I do not see any sense at all in the mining. New crypto currencies refuse to mining at all. I think it's right.

for me, CPU mining is still profitable. But If you want to build a new rig, you should consider Vega. Grin

Hey all,

I am planning to develop pool software for ethereum (and forks). I have installed  linux,  geth  on an old PC and created a private chain.
In order to develop and test I need a CPU miner (not the geth miner ) so that it connects to my ethereum node via stratum.

I understood ethminer used to have CPU support, but I cannot find any old version in github.

Anyone has a link where I can download an old version of ethminer (linux) which has support for CPU mining (-C flag)?

Thanks

Hi guys.

i ve stuck with the cpu mining idea because of existing hardware.
I ve got 7 servers with xeon cpus but all working on some software, services etc etc. i wouldn't like them to work on full load but only up to 50-60% as now each cpu load is < 10%.
I could also setup a couple of Virtual machines only for mining.
As well i could built a pc with FX 8300 8-Core Processor 3.3GHz only for mining too.

Do you think that all these machines would make some good profit monthly?
Would better go for Monero or Aeon?

servers running 24/7 and im not paying any electricity.


other choice is:
rig with few GTX 750 Ti 4GB that is cheap for mining monero (giving about 250h/s) and according to calculators will give a monthly profit of aprox $70.

if mining monero i would be happy in the future to reach 1500h/s-2000h/s so i could get up to $180 per month.

i'm happy to listen any opinion

It seems CPU mining will not take profits. If you want to start mining, better to buy GPU miners for freshers

Biblepay is the next cpu algo.

I am mining biblepay with my cpu.

biblepay is doing good. s biblepay is cpu only coin with new algorithm.

Biblepay is still good for mining it'seems,  and it is noted at c-cex (rare cpu only coin)
And it makes you feel good because it supports poor orphans  (kids)

Probably woud never mined a cristian coin with a name like biblepay
but the Dev is actually really doing his best and the support for the orphans is a really nice touch.
Just check it out ;-)

for biblepay you can mining with any old shit cores=  1,2,4 cores is best choice ... no need newest xeons

you could mine biblepay,
Use this container if you don't want to deal with the optimized mining setup:
https://hub.docker.com/r/cryptozero/biblepay-opt/

BiblePay (BBP)
- 10% mined coins always go to Charity (already sponsoring 180+ Orphans monthly)
- ASIC-Resistant like Vertcoin/Groestlcoin (CPU Mining Only)
- fork of DASH (Masternode Governance Model, Budget Proposals & Voting)

that is right, it is better that we build a rig to mining and buy some vga so we can start mining some coin. we don't recommend mining using our CPU because we cannot make a profit and besides that, we need to pay some electricity that will increase from time to time. if you can buy some vga cards, then you have many option coin to mining and I guess you can get a profit from this.

You will spend more money on electricity than earn if you use the central processing unit. This is futile. A lot of power is needed for mining.

AMD Ryzen processors has approximately 1 year ROI with Monero mining.
