Even though most people are either GPU mining or using specialized ASIC miners for most crypto coins, there are still some that are only CPU mineable or at least are worth CPU mining even if they do come with a GPU miner as well. Since we are getting questions what crypto coin to mine if you have some spare CPU power available, we have compiled a short list of coins that you might want to check out. Do note that with a single CPU you will most likely not earn much mining any CPU coin, but if you have multiple CPUs available along with free electricity the outcome might be better…

Crypto coins to check for CPU mining:
Boolberry (BBR)
Coin Magi (XMG)
Cryptonite (XCN)
DigitalNote (XDN)
Monero (XMR)

The list is alphabetically ordered are there are a few other CPU coins available as well besides the ones listed above, many of these based on the CryptoNight algorithm used by XMR and some others as well, so if you are interested you can dig a bit more into the alternatives. Alternatively you can look for new coin launches that only come with CPU mining, these can be profitable to mine initially as well.


The CudaMiner for CryptoNite (XCN) source is available for a few days already, however we’ve had some trouble compiling it for Windows and now there is a compiled binary available. Djm34 has also released a windows binary of ccMiner with support for XCN, however the binary is compiled for newer cards only and requires CUDA 6.5 support (you may need to update the video drivers as well). The CudaMiner for CryptoNite is a bit limited in the umber of supported features, but works decently and should provide hashrate that goes close to 4 MHS on a GTX 750 Ti GPU. For the moment there is still no AMD-based GPU miner for XCN available.
