Comparison of cryptocurrencies - Bitcoin Wiki

[Serious] Can BTC and BCH coexist from a SHA-256 perspective?

Not posting this to Bitcoin because I wanted to have a technical discussion and not get slammed with a bunch of bots. Also not interested in what happens to coins once they're mined. Lightning network, colored coins, memo.cash - all potentially interesting debate fodder once they get into the hands of the users, but that's not the topic of my inquiry.
Both Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) use the same mining algorithm, SHA-256. Can multiple [mined] coins really occupy the same hardware requirements? If the discrepancy gets too large, can't the other be flooded with a 51%+ attack with an ever smaller portion of the other coin's mining ecosystem?
Let's take an example. Here's the current BTC hash contribution. Antpool is 14% of the total, which as of today is 52 EH/s, so a total of 7.28 Exahash from Antpool. The Bitcoin Cash hash rate is 4.1 EH/s. Assuming there's no overlap, if Antpool suddenly decided to mine a few blocks on the BCH chain, they would be almost 2x the existing total and therefore 66%+ of the network.
Perhaps these numbers are too close together, but if there is a clear winner this discrepancy only gets larger. Is there some sort of proof that outlines this runaway effect? Has this happened to other coins that borrowed a common hash rate algorithm? If there was something else to be mined with X11(dash) or Blake2b (siacoin), I suspect it would be more pronounced than BTC/BCH.

[Discussion] Where Classic and others went wrong. How to move forward, How to create waves and how to get Results.

Understanding the Appeasement:

First we have to clearly understand what classic, xt and other proposed hard forks were.
An appeasement to the current mining gods. A direct slap in the face to anyone that wants to see ACTUAL change in the current bitcoin ecosystem. Previous proposals addressed a change in "who" or "which" group (Or Corporation) heads up bitcoin development, more than actual change for bitcoin.
Some were saying that the debates and proposed hardforks were an example of "bitcoin working". Lets be real... that was complete and utter bullshit. Those that proposed hard forks had it wrong. Had the wrong goals. Had the wrong gameplan. Had the wrong agenda. And had the wrong road map.
When you want to see real change in real life, you dont ask the authorities, cops or politicians (who enable the very system you are trying to change....) "What works best for you?"

The Greatest Invention Since the Internet:

It became about "who" was developing bitcoin instead of "what" bitcoin was.
They NEVER addressed the situation in a way that represented what bitcoin actually is, which is unapologetically THE Single Greatest Invention since the internet itself.
We all know it. We all have experienced that thought at some point, and the reason we have all felt that is because it just simply happens to be true.
The internet brings us shared knowledge, and Bitcoin brings us the means to an unadulterated, enlightened and free economy.
NEVER has there been a more transparent potential chain of value before bitcoin. Not cattle, chickens, gold, diamonds or paper.
All systems of transferring value before bitcoin could be gamed in major ways. No one has ever been able to account for how many cattle, gold, diamonds or paper existed, at any point in history.
Paper backed by gold? Well lets take the various gold cartels out of the equation, and then calculate how much of it existed at any given point GLOBALLY. Hard to do. Add back in the cartels who often times will manipulate the public's perception of scarcity and it becomes IMPOSSIBLE.
With bitcoin we ALL not only know how much is going to exist at a given point in time, we can also see how it has moved from the very day it went live.
This is what Satoshi gave us.
Its only been 7 years since bitcoin stormed into our long and complicated human history. Anyone hand waving, discrediting or dismissing satoshi's still young yet enlightened guidance most likely suffers from "It could have been me".
It wasnt and no matter how many times they try to rewrite, muddy or convolute history, it never will be.

A Path Forward and The Systematic Attack against Origins:

Satoshi gave us a path for these very situations, but instead of referring to this enlightened knowledge, there has been a systematic attack (albeit slow and methodical) against the very person or group who envisioned bitcoin.
Chip after chip, scratch after scratch, cut after cut... Satoshi (whether we realize it or not) has been cut down to some entity that just happened have "lucked" into a winning idea.
Lets not undersell this point. Satoshi... envisioned... bitcoin. Period. Others who read and saw the potential joined and helped make that vision a reality. The original released whitepaper should be locked into the collective minds of everyone who sees bitcoin as one of the biggest breakthroughs... since maybe fire itself.
Bitcoin may have the same bad actors money & commerce has always had since the inception of monies, however the world up until this point has NEVER had anything like bitcoin when it comes to creating a tradable token of value.

Algorithm Maximalism (What is of importance.... The idea of bitcoin? or the Algorithm it uses):

What good is change if it doesnt actually change anything. Bitcoins current POW system is and has always been a means to an end. The intention was never to bring a specific algo into relevance, but instead the algo was chosen to bring bitcoin to fruition.
There is no such thing atm as "Algorithm Maximalism" except possibly to those who have willingly chosen to go in on equipment specific to an algorithm. This type of "maximalism" in most instances can be attributed to the question of what equipment a person/group has.
Tons of Sha256 equipment? Lets take two guesses what this person or group is going to say when asked which algorithm they like.... You wont need the second guess.
Tons of X11 mining equipment? Scrypt mining equipment? Lets take a stab at answering those also.. We would need one guess per instance.
As far as I can tell, since inception, a change in POW algorithms has NEVER been off the table of discussion, despite what some may say.

Not Taking Proposed Change Far Enough:

As stated earlier, All previous (semi popular) hardfork proposals to date have been simply bandaids for what has turned into gaping, festering wounds.
Those part of previous proposals never took it quite far enough. They never actually "OWNED" their proposals nor did they attempt to come up with any solutions byond "What do the miners think?"
But bitcoin is nothing without protection and the current consortium of miners right? Wrong. Look to your left, then look to your right. Tally up all the collective discussion of bitcoin. Tally up how many people are actually involved. Miners are only important in a sha256 world.
Outside of that and its the community that gives bitcoin its mining strenght. There are very few miners with tons of equipment, but with things like periodic algo changes on the table, it goes to a "many of us each with something to contribute" scenario.

The question of value

Bitcoin is lucky in that it is such a REVOLUTIONARY idea, we have had the great fortune of having THOUSANDS of iterations, clones and tests. Each different in some way. Small or big.
Bitcoin is such a revolutionary idea that the sheer number of people trying to capture its eventual essence numbers in the 10's of thousands.
Lets take stock of this. Unix, one of the greatest gifts to emerge from bell labs. How many serious and noteworthy projects are offshoots of its genesis project? A TON! (Linux for instance) One of the biggest communities the online world has ever seen. Linux, basically a complete rewrite of unix is one of the major reasons we can post things like this online.
However its community pales in comparison to the number of cryptocurrency offshoots bitcoin has produced in this short 7 year span.
Recently projects such has eth has shown us that indeed communities value different chains in different ways. ETC has shown us that even a throwaway token has value to someone somewhere and for different reasons.
Bitcoin's popularity as an idea has afforded each and everyone of us who is paying attention, the opportunity to learn from tons of smaller projects. Good or Bad. It all counts for something.
Ultimately its the community that decides bitcoins value. For many different reasons, whether it be what algo we mine, what devs we follow, what iteration we run.
The chain is there. The history is there. Algorithms do not make bitcoin "bitcoin", the people do. Along with its historical chain.

Unapologetic Forking

Lets throw appeasement out the window.
We have the chain, we have the people. Two things that matter most in moving forward with changes. Security and Immutability are built with action. POW algorithm (so long as it is secure) is just a means to move it.
You put cpu's or attainable equipment back on the table and we will witness an inclusive "Every Man" Moment bitcoin has NEVER seen before.
There are arguments to be made for actually forking bitcoin, changing its algorithm without a minimum threshold of current miner support and letting the free market of "Do you want to be part of this?" show us if what we are doing is valuable to a portion of people.
I know the answer to this, or at least Im very confident I know what the response of a majority of people will be.
This is why I very lightly touched on the idea here: https://www.reddit.com/btc/comments/4xghux/discussion_if_roger_ver_were_to_back_a_reputable/
Im willing to personally expand on it if the idea seems interesting. My real excitement comes from seeing what others think or how THEY would expand on it.
The amount of information I put out there so far is just the tip of the iceberg thought wise. I like processing things more than typing however this is a topic that is very important to me personally. I happen to think its very important to a lot of other people in the community also.
Real change requires real change, real action and taking real chances.
Lets try something... if it doesnt work out and if we are mindful, the core chain will always be there to go back to as a fallback "close second" option. Without getting into mud slinging, I can say that its obvious they need US more than we need them. We all feel this to be true, or have at some point even if for a minuscule amount of time.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ): Tips and Tricks

Following on from the mining guides (third one is coming along), I think it's important to try and keep a "tips & tricks" or FAQ post that can be edited and shared with all of those who would like to have an easy reference guide for the ins & outs of Myriad.
   

Frequently Asked Questions (Mining):

   
Q: How do I start mining?
 
A: Here are some basic guides to getting some coin for yourself:
 
Part 1: https://www.reddit.com/myriadcoin/comments/6jj5z5/beginners_guide_to_myriad_mining_using_you (CPU Mining)
 
Part 2: https://www.reddit.com/myriadcoin/comments/6jobfa/beginners_guide_to_myriad_mining_part_2_using/ (NVIDIA Mining)
 
Q: What is the most efficient Myriad mining algorithm to use?
 
A: It depends on your hardware. I know you want to maximise your returns, and build up that coin, but Myriad was designed so that everyone can generate it for their poor, slim wallet, at least until all of this interest in it brings the big boys out to play.
Your best way is (unfortunately) to throw more cores, more GPUs, and more hardware at computing the problem, which most of us can't afford. Don't worry though, it'll be an addiction soon enough!
By that token, trying multipurpose hardware at two different tasks separately and comparing both of them will tell you which is better for powespeed/efficiency/heat.
E.g. My 69xx AMD card is fantasticly cool and super efficient at computing the Skein algorithm, but as soon as I throw it at the Groestl algorithm, it begins to implode and have heat babies. Do the hard work and set that hardware to pasture!
 
Q: What is the best hardware to use?
 
A: The best hardware to use is the fastest hardware that can generate the least heat, and thereby stay cool and efficient for the duration of your continued abuse of the poor thing. Your best asset in choosing hardware is having 5 algorithms to choose from!
Miners in other, considerably less interesting coin ventures, often have huge warehouses of cooling and fans and GPUs, all doing their bidding. Keeping them efficient and cool is a nightmare. In Myriad mining, the small operation still sees a nice influx of coin, using the spare cycles of their Android phone (kids, don't try this at home!).
 
Q: Why isn't x hardware working as I intend it to?! Please tell me what's wrong! Why is it overheating/blowing up/inefficient/not returning shares/doing x silly behaviour?
 
A: Good question! There are no stupid questions, only stupid computers, that aren't computing away for us & doing our bidding! Why don't you ask in the comments section. If the answer is esoteric enough, I'll add it to this post.

Frequently asked questions: Myriad (XMY)

   
Q: I remember in researching Myriadcoin that it used to use another algorithm called Qubit now replaced with Yescrypt. Who got to make that call? The Devs? SimbaCuriosity/
 
A: Myriad_Angel/: When we replaced Qubit with Yescrypt, it was something that many people had discussed on this sub, and then I offered a small bounty for some devs to implement the change. A number of people worked on it. From memory: nzsquirrell, 8bitcoder, cryptapus, hash_engineering. The reason why we replaced Qubit is because it's kind of similar to X11 in the way that it works.
A company called Baikal that makes X11 ASICs started to produce Qubit ASICs on the side. We thought it would be better for security and inclusiveness to replace it with a new CPU option, as myr-groestl and qubit originally were. I think nearly everyone agreed with the decision. Yescrypt had already been implemented in nzsquirrell's project Unitus by then.
https://www.reddit.com/myriadcoin/comments/6k2n8g/how_much_power_do_the_myriadcoin_devs_have_ovedjjczaz/
 
Q: Could the Devs potentially change all the algorithms? SimbaCuriosity/
A: Myriad_Angel/: The devs don't really have the power to change anything, beyond using their knowledge and community influence. All they can do is publish new wallets that would change the PoW as you say. But the community could choose not to download them. As well, anyone could choose to be a dev and try to fork the network. In fact I'm offering a bounty of 1.5 million XMY to anyone who successfully produces a PoW hard fork on XMY under sane conditions. I feel that our current selection could be improved.
In order to change the PoW, it's a complicated matter. First you need a dev to make the new wallet. Then you need everyone to download the new wallet, including pools, exchanges, block explorers, other services. Then you need miners to connect to pools using the new wallet and mine the new version blocks. And if you don't have a great supermajority of hash power behind your fork, you might end up with a "Myriad Fork" and "Myriad Classic" situation, which would be very confusing for investors.

Frequently asked questions: General

   
Q:Why is my wallet empty? How do I fill it?
 
A: I know. Me too. The simplest answer is: buy Myriad (XMY) for Bitcoin (BTC). At some point I'd like to add a post on how to do this. I know you all love tinkering and exploding your lovely computing parts to generate coin. I do too. But if you want to really ensure the success of Myriad as a currency, go and buy as much as you can get your hands on, and sit on them (your hands).
 
Q: How do I withdraw from the *#($& tip bot!?
 
A: Private message the poor thing, asking the following:
 
withdraw -yourwalletaddress- numberofcoins
 
If you don't enter a coin number, it'll just withdraw all available.
 
Q: Why all the excitement over something which isn't tangible? Why does my brain tell me I'm poor, no matter what the price of the currency I hold is?
 
A: That's where your brain is wrong. Cyrptocurrency IS tangible. Myriad is even more tangible than other, less interesting currencies, as you can see the effort to generate the coins taking place right in your house - not just in pictures of aircraft hangers filled with air conditioning. It is your poor little CPU that is making the effort to show you what you're getting for your massive power bill - and that's numbers in a virtual wallet! Isn't it great.
As for the second part of the question, your brain tells you you're poor, because no matter what huge number you show it, it'll demand a higher number, and the rest of the humans on the planet will want a higher number than you. Learn to be happy with what you can get. Please do a Psychology degree to understand this process further.
 
Q: Do you ever sleep once you get into coins?
 
A: No.

REAL LEGIT and PRO Ekrane - a platform for providing services in all mining process

Ekrane - a platform for providing services, for working with the use of cloud mining, PoS -forging mining and browser-based mining.

Fundamental crypto-business : Cloud mining, Masternode, Browser mining, Mining-mix

The legal side is the company EGALITY (LMD), technical development - E-GAME (AVG).

Ekrane - implemented as a multifunctional tool, a unique service for business, with a user-friendly interface and a simple management model.

The goal of the development was to simplify the provision of services in the field of cryptichesh extraction with available methods and to unite into a single mechanism, in the form of a business building strategy, accessible to each participant of the process.

Equipment:
Rental capacity.
Now Ekrane not only leases the computing power of a hasht for bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum and other complex algorithms, but also invests in the power of partners to increase the flow of profits.

At the moment, we are expanding the spectrum and increasing the capacity of cloud-based crypteshesh, using a hash lease in special cloud services, accumulating power in their data centers and farms. This is a new model of earnings, which creates groups (mining pools), with one goal: to get more revenue, in comparison with the usual distributed mining, due to the equipment management by the contractor, the technical and software components.

The capacity rent spectrum is directed to special crypto-currency farms, which are computer complexes with a large number of ASIC-devices united into a single computer network of algorithms.

Contracts for cloud mining with services: Lifetime Technology (Thailand) Co. Ltd (cryptominingfarm); (Flymining); (Eobot); (Bits2u); (Hashing24); (F2Pool Discus Fish); (BWPool) allow you to provide rental and power purchase services, under the algorithms SHA3, SHA256, Scrypt, Scrypt-N, X11, X13, X15, accumulated data centers and farms.

You can apply for a loan to purchase hashrate power (the maximum size is 0.01 BTC) or a loan for the Masternode investment (maximum is 0.03 BTC).
The loan period - until maturity, the interest rate is fixed and amounts to 12%.
Loans have a designated purpose and can be used to purchase or increase the power of a hashrate. After the loan is issued, the funds must be used as intended within a period of not more than 168 hours from the moment of registration, otherwise the loan amount and interest will be withdrawn from the wallet for purchase balance and the loan service will not be available in the future.
Repayment of the loan is as follows: for any accruals to your wallet for payouts, 50% of the accrued funds are automatically withdrawn in order to repay the loan. Withdrawal of funds will be stopped after the loan amount and the discounted interest rate has been fully repaid (12%).

Loans are available only to users who used the starting hashrate power of cloud mining. The user can not make more than one loan at a time. The next loan is possible only after the full repayment of the previous one. Be careful, activate the credit limit only for the use of funds for the intended purpose. Be careful, activate the credit limit only for the use of funds for the intended purpose.

The minimum deposit amout:
- For Rent: 0.0075 BTC.
- For Purchase: 0.05 BTC.
- For Masternode: 0.1 BTC.
- For Mining-mix: 0.002747 BTC.
The minimum payout amount: 0.0015 BTC.

Referral program depending the Level:
- Partner-Mining: 2.5%+1.5%+1%+0.75%+0.5%+0.25%+0.2%+0.15%+0.1%.
- Partner-Invest: 6%+4%+1.5%+1%+0.5%+0.4%+0.3%+0.2%+0.1%.
- Partner-Masternode: 5%+2.5%+1%.

The fee is fixed and amounts to 1000 satoshi per partner. Charging is carried out on the wallet for withdrawal.
Under the terms of the program, all invited partners must be active:
- activation of the account is obligatory by confirmation by email;
- activation of the bonus capacity of cloud mining in the "Base" tab is mandatory.
Payment methods: Bitcoin.

Welcome to r/STRAKS!

Welcome to STRAKS!

This thread is built to help users joining STRAKS and the STRAKS community. Please make sure to follow our rules (posted in the sidebar and below). Feel free to use this thread to introduce yourself and ask questions no matter how dumb :). This thread should be considered up to date. However, if you find something that is incorrect, out of date, or simply missing then please contact me or other moderators so we can update it. Thank you!

Getting Started

What is STRAKS?

STRAKS (STAK) is a cryptocurrency platform with only one goal in mind. Innovate e-commerce with the use of digital currency to facilitate smooth, instant, and secure e-commerce transactions.
With e-commerce sales projected to reach over $2.8 trillion in 2018 and $4.8 trillion in 2021 and Bitcoin showing signs of failure due to increasing fees and the inability to process large amounts of transactions, STRAKS seeks to take hold with the ability to process over 11 million transactions a day, 40 times the amount Bitcoin can process. This ensures that STRAKS will be able to handle every single transaction with a low fee. This keeps your transactions in a secure and trusted blockchain where miners keep your transactions and the networks secure and safe, making it the easiest and cheapest way to securely purchase goods online.
 
The main attributes of STRAKS are:

E-commerce

  • With quickly growing global e-commerce sales STRAKS seeks to assert itself by implementing relevant technologies achieved through development that will help make sure e-commerce transactions are smooth and quick.

Open Source

  • Open Source development allows anyone to contribute by simply making a pull request through GitHub. With anyone contributing innovation will lead to rapid product enhancements that will strengthen STRAKS market relevance.

Decentralized Ownership

  • Devolved ownership and access rights, this ensures that the application and STRAKS lifespan are not dependent on a single individual. This allows STRAKS future to be safeguarded, but also your investment and partnerships.

Community Oriented

  • Focusing on the importance of its community, the STRAKS development team is collecting feedback and suggestions from the community. Future implementations such a STRAKS-Vote is on the road-map that will allow STRAKS users to propose suggestions then vote on them. Coins collected from voting will form the basis of funding the idea.

Speed

  • With constant optimization towards transaction speeds you can send and receive STRAKS instantly. With the inclusion of Segwit that increase block-size and capacity it will ensure that the network grows. Segwit with the combination of a block interval of just 60 seconds ensures that your transaction with be confirmed quickly and safely.

Privacy

  • Nothing is more important to STRAKS than its community and investors. Safe-guarding both is key. To ensure that the currency remains fungible the Zerocoin protocol will be implemented. The currency will maintain equal values irrespective of past transactions, as transactions will remain untraceable and anonymous. This allows STRAKS to protect its long-term market position.

Self-funded

  • STRAKS seeks to be 100% self-funded, it has one of the lowest PoW fees on the market. A 5% fee on PoW insures that STRAKS is well-funded through its entire lifespan. This will allow STRAKS to support product development, business development, and operational expenses.

DASH mining in any capacity is officially dead thanks to greedy Masternodes

I have created an article on medium with mathematical models and indicators to show the competition SHA-256 mining brings to x11 mining, and how this will incredibly inhibit the possibility of DASH global infrastructure worldwide. Check it out:

EDIT 2: Anyone interested in buying one of these 8x Antminer D3's is more than welcome to buy one off of me LOL. Still in the box, PM me to set up an escrow.
Let's get this straight - I'm not here to complain about my shitty investment into the Antminer D3 which I've bought 10 of already, but I want to be frank about what the hell just happened - in ONE FOUL SWOOP, Bitmain managed to flood out one of bitcoin's main competition by showing just how weak their hashing algorithms were in terms of scalability for its mining community.
https://www.dash.org/forum/attachments/dash-profitability-jpg.5280/
We are officially in the negative when it comes to DASH profitability with a 1500 dollar Antminer D3 with an average cost per KW/h. Now that's not the part I want anyone to focus on - but look at that DASH mined per year - 2 DASH coins. Now let's look at the hashrate, which has only very recently in its lifetime reached above 1000TH/s https://www.dash.org/forum/attachments/dash-hashrate-jpg.5282/
In comparison, bitcoin is at a hashrate in the 5.3 MILLION TH/s range and its profitability stays stable: https://www.dash.org/forum/attachments/bitcoin-hashrate-jpg.5281/
Note that their S9 basic has a hash rate 100 times the size of the D3 hashrate, yet still gives us reasonable returns: https://www.dash.org/forum/attachments/bitcoin-profitability-jpg.5283/
From a mining investment point of view, it's obviously clear that bitcoin comes out superior in terms of profitability and sustainability as a business model. Most of the support and big push for bitcoin comes from its mining community - do you all honestly think your 5% governance structure is going to be enough to propel your DASH into mainstream limelight when the algorithm underlying it can't even support a few months supply of algorithm miners?
Part of the allure of bitcoin is that it created an industry under it - not just as a payment method, but also as a means of livelihood while supporting the underlying cryptocurrency structure and, in a way, propelling it into mainstream limelight due to its robust infrastructures around the world. What the hell did DASH miners get? A cryptocurrency whose profitability got flooded out by new technology WHILE using that same new technology? I'd like to remind everyone that we are only talking about 1500 TH/s. 1500... vs 5.3 million.. and its suddenly not viable to even mine it at all?
This is a serious issue in terms of scalability, and you're being delusional if you think no ones gonna take note off the lack of infrastructure DASH will be providing into the cryptocurrency sphere in comparison to bitcoin - we harp on bitcoin because of its shitty transaction speeds and high network fees, but we're literally killing DASH by not even accommodating to the mining community which supports its PoW infrastructure. In essence, DASH just hard-capped itself at the 1.5 PH/s line, while bitcoin will continue to improve itself around the world in terms of hashrate. You might have the software capable of bringing this to the masses, but without the hashrate and processing power to process those fancy 2MB/s blocks the devs have been promising, the DASH team just shot itself in the foot twice by introducing both cheaper network fees AND the promise that, somehow, 2MB/s blocks will be supported by its mining community. People are already dropping DASH mining like hotcakes everywhere - just look at ebay selling D3's for half of its price.
So, in conclusion, this is something that needs to be addressed immediately. The devs are just tip toeing around this issue by solving problems that don't even exist and building aritificial hype around the coin that shouldn't exist (why are 2MB/s blocks so important when you dont even have the tx volume or high tx fees to make it impactful?) meanwhile, their competition, bitcoin, is proving itself to be a competitor globally in terms of PoW infrastructure needed to support a global adoption to its base because, seriously, no amount of development work is going to transact thousands of trillions of dollars a day on a hash rate of 1.5 PH/s.

X11 PoW/PoS Introduced the X11 algorithm, which is just a composite function of multiple hashing algorithms. Had a significant failure mode in the beginning which equated to a majority premine by a small number of Amazon EC2 customers. This means their Master Node algorithm has been in a failure mode from the beginning. dash.org: Ethereum Classic ETC 2015-08-07 Low Infinite Ethash PoW Majority ... Initially, X11 was created to overcome the drawbacks of the major cryptocurrency mining algorithms like SHA256 used by Bitcoin and Scrypt used by Litecoin or Dogecoin. The biggest drawback was that ASIC miners took over the mining industry for these cryptocurrencies making it centralized and computer-based mining did not worth performing it anymore. X11 is an algorithm for mining cryptocurrency which uses 11 different hash functions. X11 algorithm is more complicated than a SHA -256 in Bitcoin, which prevented the use of ASIC miners for a time. Review of X11, ASIC Miners, Mining Pools list and etc. CPU and GPU mining of X11 coins is certainly still possible. However, profitability is falling, mining comparison sites like WhatToMine.com no longer list X11 coins in their GPU category. Instead, coins like Dash and Checkcoin group with other ASIC mining opportunities. It is a subtle change but accurately reflects the sentiment of the mining community. Conclusion. There is little consensus ... Being listed in this section is NOT an endorsement of these services and is to serve merely as a Bitcoin cloud mining comparison.
