Monero’s planned upcoming hardfork to the new CryptoNight/CryptoNote V8 proof of work algorithm is going well and will just about a day left and miners already supporting the V8 algorithm people are getting ready to mine XMR. Even services such as MiningRigRentals where you can rent or lease mining rigs are already supporting the new V8 algorithm with rigs available. NiceHash however has also added support for V8, including support for their latest NiceHash Miner, so you can expect quite a lot of hashrate after the fork coming from the service.

The SUQA project that we recently introduced is continuing to gain more interest from users and its X22i algorithm has just been added to MRR. The good news for miners is that X22i is still too new and not big enough to catch the interest of NiceHash, though if things continue this way it will happen sooner or later. Anyway, SUQA is developing nicely with network hashrate growing as more users join the mining process and the project is progressing well on their announced roadmap, even though there is still some skepticism surrounding the 10% developer fee from each mined block.

You can check the MiningRigRentals service for more details on available algorithms and rigs…

We love to see new crypro projects that also come with a new mining algorithms that are not dominated by ASICs or hashpower renting services. SUQA is one such new crypto project that comes with its own new proof of work mining algorithm called X22i that of course requires a new miner. The coins is a proof of work one, meaning that it can be mined with GPUs, although initially there was only an Nvidia CUDA miner available, there is now also an AMD OpenCL miner also available. SUQA has a block reward that goes down pretty fast initially, so it is apparently a good idea to join the mining early on with a higher block reward. There are also Time-Locked deposits with 5% regular APR, though for the first three months it is raised to 25% to drive early adoption. The most interesting thing about the X22i algorithm is the so called quantum resistant part in the algo chain called SWIFFTX and the promise that the project will remain FPGA and ASIC resistant.

Currently there is an official open source ccminer fork for Nvidia GPUs, though it is significantly slower than the third-party option available. The zjazz experimental CUDA miner with SUQA support is up to about twice faster compared to the official one. It is however still an experimental release, a closed source miner and comes with a 2% developer fee built in. A couple of hours ago zjazz has also released an experimental version for AMD GPUs, so now you can use it to mine SUQA on AMD-based mining rigs as well. There are already a big number of pools supporting SUQA mining, so you have a lot of options to choose from. There is a mining calculator, though you can use it only for checking how much coins you can mine. The coin is already listed on two small exchanges with no trading volume in general, so you might want to wait for a more serious listing later on before starting to trade it.

Although the project is still new and being actively developed it has generated a lot of attention already, so you might want to check it out in more details if you are looking for something new and interesting to mine.
