TOP coins to mine with CPU - RandomX (april 2020)

Wednesday, April 15, 2020 | Cryptunit

It looks like the most of cryptocurrency is leaving behind CPU mining, but now with the new mining algos, some Cryptonote cryptocurrencies are returning CPU mining as a priority mining method.

In this article, we especially want to highlight the RandomX mining algorithm and its variants. We will cover cryptocurrencies that use this algorithm for mining (in another article we will talk about other CPU mining algorithms). 

RandomX is designed to be CPU-centric. The goal of RandomX is to decentralize mining as much as possible. CPUs are the most distributed computing resource in the world, because today everyone has a CPU, in a computer or smartphone.


The Quantum Resistant Ledger forked to RandomX a few days ago (block #942375). Based upon the understanding that popular existing cryptographic signature schemes (such as ECDSA) in the cryptocurrency space are vulnerable to a sufficiently powerful quantum computer running Shor’s algorithm, QRL is addressing what will be a singular threat to the security of cryptocurrency going forward – the inevitability of quantum computing.
