Mining ETN via CPU

 

Hi Fam

I’ve been researching and experimenting with CPU miners recently. One of them is mining Electroneum (ETN) via Awesome miner and MiningPoolHub which I find has been very interesting especially after setting up my RX580 mining rig and being a victim of the recent surge of GPU prices….

Background about Electroneum (ETN):

Electroneum is a simple to use, mobile cryptocurrency based in England. Electroneum makes it easy to access and use a super secure cryptocurrency that has all of the benefits of Bitcoin and more. Transactions in Electroneum happen faster and are more anonymous. The benefits is that it is easy to use and can be mine-able via GPU or even low tier CPUs
