WildRig is a relatively new closed source miner for both AMD OpenCL and Nvidia CUDA GPU miners for the Wild Keccak algorithm used by crypto coins such as Boolberry (BBR) or PURK. It seems to be performing better on Nvidia hardware compared to ccMiner’s performance for Wild Keccak, though on AMD it may not be faster than other alternative miners available. Do note that since this is a closed source miner it also comes with a 2% developer fee built-in, so that fact can make all the difference depending on your hardware if it is worth using the miner or not. Since it is a specific miner for a specific algorithm it offers some extra features and improvements that may make it more problem-free or useful for mining Wild Keccak, though there are not much coins out there that actually rely on this algorithm unfortunately. There are binaries available for Windows, Linux and Hive OS.

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.
