CryptUnit is an interesting new service offering up to date data for Cryptonote-based altcoins that you can mine, giving you profitability information along with more details about each of the supported coins. You just need to enter your Cryptonight hashrate and the service will calculate what is the most profitable coin to mine at the moment and give you some extra useful information such as pools and exchanges if you are not familiar with the coin. Of course profitability varies all the time, so things change and the most profitable coins vary all the time. Currently the service covers 16 different Cryptonote coins that can be mined with CPU or GPU (both AMD and Nvidia). The people most interested in this service are probably going to be the ones with AMD-based video cards especially RX VEGA 56/64 due to their very high mining performance especially in the Cryptonight algorithm.

To check out the CryptUnit web service offering Cryptonote mining profitability information… is a new specialized crypto portal for miners and crypto enthusiasts. They provide a multi coin / multi algorithm profits comparison calculator that includes every Equihash and NeoScrypt based crypto currencies, as well as several X11, Xevan, Tribus, Lyra2Z and Skunkhash altcoins. Bitcoin Gold has also been included in there with the service claiming it to be the first profit calculator for the new coin out there and miners are able to see what they are making in mining profits.

The mining calculators have a built-in functionality to directly select the type and the number of AMD or Nvidia video cards and to automatically get the corresponding hashrate needed for the profitability calculations. The information in the video cards list with Hash to Power used has been compiled with the help of multiple pools and miners and provides values for every Nvidia video card going back to the GTX 7XX series and for most of the more recent AMD video cards as well.

One feature that sets apart this mining profitability calculator service is that with every calculation the users can see links to the coins official website, block explorer and recommended mining pools. The recommended pools list provides in one place the location of the pools and their mining fee, so miners can choose which pool will fit them best and go there directly after finding a new profitable coin to switch to.

The team behind the website has also recently started sharing technical crypto guides on interesting topics and a hardware repair section, which can be really useful for everyone who wants to restore their old mining cards back to glory for instance. The site is also provides monitoring of the Network Hashrate and Difficulty for all of the coins present in the calculator, allowing miners to check the last 90 days of the performance of the network.

In the last few days Siacoin (SC) mining has been picking up with the release of the first public mining pools as prior that only solo mining was possible. The profitability for mining Siacoin and then selling immediately is quite good, so some miners have moved away from mining Ethereum and other altcoins to check out SIA. To get a better idea on what profit you can expect mining Siacoin you can use the simple Siacoin Mining Calculator, all you have to do is enter your hashrate, we would recommend using the Siacoin Go pool miner for AMD and Nvidia GPUs and below you can find some benchmarks for the expected hashrate from various AMD and Nvidia GPUs using the miner (non overclocked):

There are already two public mining pools available – Siamining (Pay Per Share) and Sia Nanopool (PPLNS) that you might want to check out. There are also a couple of different miners, but the best one for the moment seems to be the Siacoin Go pool miner that uses OpenCL, but works on both ADM and Nvidia GPUs. Do note that what makes Siacoin even more attractive not just to mine and sell your coins, but to keep them is that there is a decentralized storage service that actual already relies on these crypto tokens to operate.
