Below you can find a list of the more common crypto algorithms with some example coins that use them along with a link to windows binary for a miner for the respective algorithm. This way you can quickly get to the GPU miner for AMD or Nvidia GPUs that you would need to use for a specific crypto algorithms, especially if you have not yet mined a coin based on that algorithm. There are of course some more coins that use other specific algorithms and may not be mineable with the GPU miners listed below.

slothcoin-crypto

Slothcoin (SLOTH) is a SHA-3 Keccak peer-2-peer cryptocurrency created for having fun and in the mean while revolutionizing currencies. It is based on the idea of Dogecoin and combined with some more advanced aspects like the SHA-3 encryption algorithm, which equals out the difference between Nvidia and AMD graphic cards and is more secure than SHA256-like encryption algorithms.

A total amount of 100,000,000,000 coins will be mined in the creation process, ensuring that there are enough coins for everyone and that Slothcoin will not become a comma-currency like Bitcoin. A block-time of 60 seconds ensures fast transactions while in the mean time reducing orphan rates that occur with block-times below 60 seconds. Kimoto’s gravity well is implemented to adjust the difficulty every 4 blocks, this will prevent multipools from taking advantage of low difficulty and ensures that the coin does not get stuck in a high difficulty scenario. And the big question is could this coin follow in the DOGEcoin steps?

maxcoin-current-exchange-rate

If you were thinking that MaxCoin (MAX) is dead, then you might want to rethink thatas in the last few hours there has been an increase in the trading volume of the coin and the exchange rate is starting to get back up, though still far from what it was a while ago. We do recommend to keep an eye on MAX, especially if you have some coins that you have mined some time ago and still haven’t sold them due to the low exchange rate. Mining MaxCoin at the moment might also be a good idea with the current lower difficulty and if the exchange rate continues to increase. A few hours later however it seems though it might just be another pump and dump scheme, though the exchange rate stabilized at almost double price than before. Meanwhile the project has released new wallet binaries for MaxCoin 0.9.0, and recommends that everyone upgrades by next week (block 140000).
