Summer is already hot, only the weather has nothing to do with it. The thing is in Bitcoin: in the second half of June, its rate exceeded 10 thousand dollars, which was not the case since March last year. The rest of the cryptocurrencies, too, pulled up, and against the background of all this mining again became profitable. The key advantage of cryptocurrency mining is that you can earn even with weak graphics cards and without the academic title of professor. You just need to choose the right coin, which you will mine.
We anticipate in the comments the cries that Bitcoin- a pyramid, and cryptocurrency is a hoax and almost MMM. Perhaps we do not argue. But who prevents you from immediately selling your coins and converting them into hard currencies like the ruble? While you can earn, you have to earn. A discussion of Bitcoin and his future will leave at another time.
You can choose the appropriate cryptocurrency twoin ways. The first and more obvious is the use of the 2CryptoCalc mining profitability calculator. Everything is simple with it: enter the hashrate of your video card, indicate the appropriate algorithms and get a list of the most profitable for mining coins on your card. By the way, the video on the launch of mining will also be, but about it later.
The second option - the choice of low cryptocurrencythe complexity of mining. The lower this figure, the more likely it is to find a block and get a reward alone. Let's consider the most obvious option in our opinion.
We start with a budget video card. We take six models in total: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti, GTX 1060 (3 and 6 GB), AMD Radeon RX470, RX480 and RX570.
How much brings GTX 1050 ti
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 ti - the minimum barrierthe entrance to the mining. The model has 4 GB of memory, which is not enough for most cryptocurrencies. But this does not mean that you cannot make money with this GPU. For mining we recommend Ravencoin.
26 cents a day or 7.72 dollars a month withoutElectricity Accounting - Is It Bad? Enough for ice cream or something else. For example, in a year you will return the full cost of such a card: after all, Avito 1050Ti on average sell 5,000 rubles each. But the video describing the process of launching Ravencoin on the 2Miners pool.
The profitability of the Nvidia GTX 1060 3Gb
GTX 1060 version of 3 GB without any problems cope withBitcoin Gold. By the way, the cryptocurrency works on the Equihash 144.5 algorithm, which is protected from special mining devices - ASIC. This means that video cards are not threatened by a sharp decline in profitability.
Here the money is more serious. Almost 13 dollars per month. Not sure how to start mining BTG? Watch the video.
How much does Nvidia GTX 1060 6Gb earn
GTX 1060 6 GB, also known as 1066, which is more functional. The best option for this video card is definitely Aeternity.
AE will give 65 cents a day, or almost $ 20 a month. Below is a video that will help launch Aeternity loot. At 2Miners about 250 people are digging this coin.
AMD Radeon RX470 Profitability
With the "red" graphics cards from AMD, everything is simple: you need to dig either Ethereum or Ethereum Classic. We show the profitability of both coins for the RX470.
62 cents a day is more than 18 dollars a month. If you go to AliExpress and see the price of these video cards, it becomes clear that they pay off very quickly. In this case, Ethereum Classic is a bit more profitable, so here’s the corresponding video.
How much does AMD Radeon RX480 earn
The RX480 differs slightly from the RX470 in a hashrate — that is, in performance. The highest model on the Ethash algorithm yields 29.5 Mh / s.
And this is 70 cents a day or $ 21 a month. If suddenly you trust Vitalik Buterin's project, that is, Ethereum, then watch this video instruction.
AMD Radeon RX570 Profitability
The RX570 produces a little less - 27.9 Mh / s. The profit in this connection is also less.
Alternatively, try mine Pirl. Although Ethereum and Ethereum Classic - safer.
What more to mine?
And now the second option: a list of coins that are distinguished by the relatively low complexity of mining. This increases the chances of finding a block and earning money even with small capacities.
Here we remember ZelCash. The developers on the eve switched to a new extraction algorithm and thus protected the owners of video cards. The coin even lit up at the top of the mining profitability table. True, not for long.</ p>
There is also MOAC, although the profitability on the same GTX 1060 6Gb is almost twice as low as Aeternity.
Finally, attention may attract Zclassic. True, it is better not to get involved with him - due to problems with the cryptocurrency exchanges may soon die.
Mining comes to life
Bitcoin's leap above the psychologically importantlevel of 10 thousand dollars gave hope for new records. At the same time, he made other coins grow, due to which their mining became profitable even on one video card. It seems that there is no more time for computer games - now video cards should earn. Even budget.
