Hi there,

I know there are many threads like this but I was hoping to collect recent information.

What  algorithms are the highest profitability for GPUs (AMD or Nvidia), and out of those, which are the most ASIC resistant?


Better yet, what characteristics of an algorithm (memory requirements, etc), make it highly profitable?

What characteristics make it highly Asic resistant?



And why are the most profitable not always the most ASIC resistant?    This part I struggle with.


Ie:   lyra2rev2 .     You would think it would be the most profitable based on its ASIC resistance?   Why isn't it?   The coins it's attached to? the resources it requires?


What makes a GPU targeted algorithm "just right"?


thanks for your thoughts

Equihash is one the algo that is ASIC resistant aside from Ethash.

Highest profitability for a certain algo is variable, Lyra2rev2 may be profitable today but later on will not already. I am not quite sure your purpose of knowing ASIC resistance algo as if its profitability is concern you can freely switch to any profitable coins out there.

Thank you, it would be from a developer perspective.    How to target a wide distribution that provides them high profitability.


So, potentially:   GPU friendly,   but ASIC and Nicehash resistant  (I'm not sure if it's necesary to be nicehash resistant).

I like the sounds of Equihash.     The only thing is that it can be hard for some GPU miners because of nicehash.


Just trying to think of what algo would be most profitable for typical gpu miners.
