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.

If you are wondering if it is worth mining Ethereum you can get an idea on how much Ether (ETH) should be mined with a specific hashrate depending on what hardware you have available with a simple mining profitability calculator. All you have to enter is the hashrate you are getting (you can run ethminer in benchmark mode to see what hashrate to expect from your CPU or GPU if you have not yet started mining) and you will get information about the expected mined amount in ETH and USD. The calculator uses up to date data from etherchain’s API to get fresh information about the Network Hashrate, average Blocktime and 1 ETH price, so it should be pretty accurate with the results at the moment of time you use it. The estimated coins to be mined and their USD value are shown for a period of 1 Minute, 1 Hour, 1 Day, 1 Week and 1 Month, though the longer the period is the less accurate the estimation could be.

So for example if we have a single AMD Radeon R9 280X GPU available that is capable of producing around 24 MHS worth of hashrate when mining Ethereum and we enter that value in the calculator we are going to get an estimation of about 4.5 ETH mined in a day or a bit over $5 USD. This is making mining Ether on the Ethereum network a pretty good and profitable crypto currency to mine at the moment if the estimates are true. If you want you can check our Quick Guide on How to Mine Ethereum on Windows to get things started. The Ethereum Mining Profitability Calculator is pretty simple and dubbed as alpha software, but it works well, the code is written in Python and the source code is also available for anyone interested.
