CPU mining

Hello, I am looking for providers of dedicated servers who allow CPU mining. I'm mining a crypto currency and need more servers. Looking for specs similar to Dual CPU. 16 cores, 32 threads I'm paying currently $75 at one host, but would be willing to pay more.. Thank you

    Are you a part of that hosting operation? I want to make sure they allow CPU mining.

  • What are you mining?

  • @aaraya1516 said: What are you mining? This is kind of a hobby, mining a crypto currency. Nothing illegal and your welcome to ask any questions.

  • Magiklair said: This is kind of a hobby, mining a crypto currency. Nothing illegal and your welcome to ask any questions.

    just wondering which one, I'm not familiar with one that would be profitable with those servers

  • If it's a dedicated server - why would any provider prohibit you from max'ing out a resource that is entirely dedicated to you?

  • @jiggawattz said: If it's a dedicated server - why would any provider prohibit you from max'ing out a resource that is entirely dedicated to you? Well they can use more electricity. But other than that, pretty harmless

  • Anyhow I'm looking for something similar to my current configuration and will want to order a few of them. Pricing $100 or less preferred. But open to offers

  • MikeAMikeA Member, Provider

    I don't even know why I'm suggesting this, but 24 core for $67 at QuadIX...

    Okay thanks for your feedback.. If any other hosting companies could contact me. That would be great!

    Are dual X5650s enough? We can do a bunch of them depending on the specs needed. Otherwise we may have some dual E5s, I'd have to check how many.

  • Which coin algo? Scrypt/sha256 only profitable using asic/gpu.

    You will NEED a lof of CPU power to do SOME profit if any :D not CPU but GPU is the way ;)

  • @Magiklair, rather than renting a dedicated server, how about buying a gridseed gc5535? It's cheaper, and with 380khs for scrypt, or 8ghs for sha256.

  • AnthonySmithAnthonySmith Administrator, Top Provider

    Any dedicated server will be fine, no VPS server will allow it.

    Take one of these: https://www.hetzner.de/dedicated-rootserver/ex51-ssd-gpu

    €117 p/month and you get an i7-6700 + a GTX 1080 Graphics card.

  • Okay, the coin cannot be mined using GPU. It's not a common algorithm such as script etc. It's very unique.. Best regards, Brian

  • AlexBarakovAlexBarakov Member, Provider

    @Magiklair - we have the following special available in Bulgaria:

    Dual Intel Xeon E5-2450L (16 cores, 32 threads)
    2x Intel Xeon E5-2450L ( total 32 threads )
    16GB of DDR3 RAM (upgradeable)
    240GB SSD drive (upgradeable)
    10TB of Bandwidth on gbps port (upgradeable)
    /29 of IPv4 (upgradeable)
    /64 of IPv6
    99EUR per month, recurring

    Let me know if this is out of any interest. We also have a bunch of L5630 and I can do a very good pricing on bulk orders, in case you can spread the load between multiple machines (not familar with mining myself).

  • Okay I've received a lot of interest. I've got to go over everything and will follow up with company and individuals whom best match my needs. I want to thank everyone for adding comments and providing feedback! It was greatly appreciated. Take care everyone and best of luck to you in the future.

  • Do you mind in telling which currency is good for cpu mining.

    I'm sorry, not going to say the coin I'm mining. That brings more competition.. Hopefully you understand

    If it's any good 100/1000s will be mining it anyway?

    Isn't a distributed network cryptocoin better off with more nodes and miners anyways

    It doesn't make any difference but nvm anyway

  • The issue with giving the coin name out. First is not well known. Second, people can rent a bunch of CPUs and get a large amount of shares. I'm doing this on a lower budget and no it's not potato coin.

    The most cost effective approach probably involves multiple i5 or i7 cpus rather than a high core count monster.

    I suspect that with some of the cheap dedi plans out there, maxing the cpu 24/7 probably loses the provider money because of electricity costs. Most people don't do it anyway, so it's fine if some people do, like using your whole disk allocation in an openvz plan. But if it becomes widespread then it becomes an adverse selection problem and prices will probably go up.

    I personally run high-cpu jobs whenever I have a use for them, sometimes for weeks at a time, but there's quite a lot of idling between those jobs. So I bet my average workload is well under 25%. Hmm, I should start using them more...

    I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not. But my primary work is in identifying coins whether they be new, ICO or other. I spend countless hours, you could say it's my day job.

    I very much appreciate the community sharing offers with me. I will be using some of the providers that have reached out to me.

    Time to dig for every cpu mineable coin that's out there and figure out which one you would be mining!

    You mining the coins hoping it'll increase long term or something?

    Is there anything that can be mined with cpus and be profitable? I was under the impression everything was gpu or asic based now?

    for the moment monero and bcn is profitable with cpu. I have some older g6 servers and some g8 and i am verry content for the moment.

    How many bitcoins can you mine per month? I have seen a video in youtube that for one week 24/7 he mined $7.

  • I don't need to CPU mine. I have a Sempron sitting next to the 8-track in case it ever becomes useful again!

    I think Electroneum is still pretty close to Monero, ... but probably is less now -- bytecoin is def more. I know for a while there it was good times ... was spending $40 an hr on AWS and making over $200 an hr in return (I have increased instance limits). That was when electroneum had the ~5000000000 difficulty vs the ~12500000000 it's at now, also price was ~$0.125 USD each instead of $0.085..... and finally, the AWS instances were a lot cheaper a couple weeks ago.

    You can still squeeze out a profit on AWS, but not worth the time investment.

    I guess Sumocoin was really good for a while too. (ed: or it's probably good again, since it seems like some sumopump is in progress)

    'cryptonight' is the main algorithm to look for for cpus

    ed2: and i don't care about keeping things 'secret'. it is not like this info will not be out there anyway. these 'curious casual' ppl , aren't the ones that are moving around like 50 MH/s of CPU power from university network or whatever

    The 'intensecoin' is more profitable at this specific second, you have to use 'stocks.exchange' to trade it (maybe there is more exchanges that have it, but not that I'm aware of).... or, wait, actually:

    sumokoin is more profitable than electroneum, bytecoins, and intensecoin right now, because this pump is still ongoing, I guess. it is sumokoin->intensecoin->bytecoin->electroneum right now.

    Currently I am mining VRM (can not be mined using GPUs and ASICs). I think this is the most profitable coin to mine using CPU atleast for now.

    I use 10 kimsufi flash sale and each server can generate 1500 h/m (i5-2400) or around 15000 h/m in total (0.25 kh/s). With this total hash power I can got around 1.5 coin per day (not solo mining but using pool).

    Let calculate it (current coin price is around 6 USD, see https://www.coingecko.com/en/price_charts/veriumreserve/usd):

    1.5 x 30 = 45 coin.

    45 x 6 USD = 270 USD

    10 x 13 euro = 130 euro or around 160 usd (kimsufi renewal for 10 servers)

    270 - 160 = 110 usd profit.

    But I did not sell the coins, two weeks ago the price was 3.8 usd and now it's up to the 6 USD range.
