Learn the in and outs of crypto. All you questions relating to the how, what and why of crypto.

In this guide, I will show you how to mine crypto on your laptop. I will show you the best laptops for crypto mining, which coins to mine, and how to go about it. You do not need a complex and sophisticated ASIC miner to reap big in the crypto mining business. And Bitcoin blockchain […]

Monero mining is memory sensitive which means the more RAM sticks you add to your mining rig the higher the hash rate you will be able to achieve. However, RAM is expensive so you need to find the sweet spot between upfront investment and performance. At a minimum, two 8 GB RAM sticks of 3200MHz […]

Using XMRig Benchmark data I have analyzed the average hashrate of the top Monero mining rigs. The most powerful miners are those in the AMD EPYC series which clock around 45 KH/s on average. A high-end AMD Ryzen will give you around 25KH/s while the AMD Threadripper delivers a hefty hashrate at just under 60 […]

Are you looking for the best Monero mining software but have no clue which one to choose? In this guide, I will review the top 7 Monero mining software against their ease of use, fees, and how they bundle up with other XMR mining options such as mining pools. I will also cover the 4 […]

In this post, I will walk you through all you need to set up a Monero mining rig. I’ll show you exactly what you need to get started and will describe it for someone who does not have a computer engineering background.

The only way you can mine Monero profitably is to use a CPU. GPUs are very inefficient at mining the Monero blockchain. In this post, I will show you just how bad GPU mining is compared to CPU mining. Why mining Monero with a GPU is wrong? Mining Monero with a GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) […]

You are going to need more than one CPU machine to mine 1 Monero per day. Currently, the most powerful Monero mining hardware will give you just over 0.03 XMR coins per day. So to mine 1 Monero coin in a day you will need 32 of these mining rigs. Let’s take a close look […]

In this post, I’ve crunched the numbers to see what is the maximum profit you can make from mining Monero and the results don’t look great. Using the most efficient CPU on the market today the most you will be able to make is 30 cents per day. While this is technically profitable it means […]

Wrapping in crypto is when you represent a token or coin on one blockchain with a token on a different blockchain. For example, you might have wBTC on the Ethereum blockchain representing a real BTC on the Bitcoin blockchain. In this post, I will walk you through what wrapping crypto is and how it works […]
