ZCash mining comparison

From LinuxReviews
Jump to: navigation, search

ZCash is a crypto currency with a 20% developer mining tax and built-in optional anonymity. It may become the currency of the future. All we need is the right major Windows-exploit and the nations will be forced to accept the GNU World Order and a mosaic of competing currencies with a limited supply and sensible secure properties.

This is a comparison of hardware and software that can be used to mine ZCash in order to profit. Be careful sharing any personal information when adding to the table or a bunch of cry-baby sour loser leftist may show up and protest.

Results may/will vary with different hardware/software setups!

  • Please make sure to add as much information as possible.
  • Please mention what specific version of the miner software you are (ab)using.
  • Please add a new row if you have updated your software/setup and have different results so it is possible to compare with results from older versions.
  • Please feel free to describe the OS you are using it's actual name if you feel doing so is preferable to calling it what it is.

[edit] CPU

CPU-mining ZCash isn't really viable or profitable compared to using GPUs.
