There are not that many CPU-only mineable coins out there and our current preferred choice for dedicating some spare CPU mining power is for HOdlcoin (HODL). The coin started with solo mining only from the wallet, but has since introduced pools and separate miners, so now it it easier to get started and there is development going on on new features. The interesting part about HODL is that you get interest rate on coins that are inside your wallet and there is also an option for making deposits for even higher returns, but unlike with PoS you do not actually need to keep the wallet running to get your bonus interest. The regular interest accumulates for each block with the coins available to be spent at any moment while the deposits lock your coins for a chosen period of time, but offer significantly higher interest when compared to the regular rate of about 5% APR. So we do recommend that you check out HOdlcoin…

After the announcement of the first HODL mining pool there was a centralization of most of the network hashrate in that pool as many people moved away from solo mining. Now we have a second HOdlcoin mining pool from Suprnova available, so you can move your hashrate there in order to balance out the hashrate distribution among the two pools and with the solo miners things should be safer for the HODL network. Of course having a few more pools won’t hurt either, but even with two mining pools things are significantly better than with just one, so this is definitely a move in the right direction.

In order to mine HODL with the new Suprnova pool you can use the same dedicated hodlminer CPU miner (source) available for download below in the form of a Windows binary. If this is the first time you are hearing about HOdlcoin (HODL) you might want to get to know about the altcoin a bit more as it has an interesting idea and bonuses for early adopters. Also the new Suprnova pool has a fee of just 1% as compared to the fee of 2% for the Blockquarry Hodl Pool, so this can also be a reason enough for some miners to switch and try the new pool. Do note that the Suprnova HODL pool was just launched, so there might be some things that need to be fixed, though it seems that the mining part is working just fine already.

Influxcoin (INFX) is apparently today’s big hit in the world of altcoins as the interest and the exchange rate of the coin has exploded. The reason for the peak is the official announcement that the Microsoft has added the project in their continuing expansion of Azure’s Blockchain as a Service. Other coins that have been added today include Expanse (EXP), a project that was forked from Ethereum, Monero (XMR) and Radium (RADS). Influxcoin (INFX) is currently the most profitable X11-based altcoin to mine, so owners of iBeLink X11 ASIC miners might be interested in it, though larger scale X11 GPU miners might want to check it out as well. EXP, XMR and RADS are also gaining in terms of exchange rate, so worth keeping an eye on them as well, but INFX has shown the highest growth among the newly announced coins supported by Microsoft’s Azure.
