Mining Tutorial ?
« on: November 26, 2017, 05:02:53 pm »
Hello all,

I'm new here and a newbie in crypto in general.
I think this is a great project that I'm watching for a while.

I'd like to know if there is any tutorial on mining this coin ?
Also, any advice on minimum hardware necessary to mine efficiently ?
I know that using CPU is not efficient anymore. But does it need only very recent GPU card (I think that might also depends on softwares used to mine, and recent version doesn't support old hardware if I understand well, but I still want to ask) ?
Does it need a rig or one GPU might be sufficient ? Or is only the ASICs efficient ?

Which software is best (considering mining with GPU ) ?

If anyone has experience with mining that could be shared here and/or useful links to read to start mining, I'd be grateful for that.
I understand that might be some common questions, but there is so much on the internet, it is not simple to find what to read to get answers when you don't know where to start.

Thanks

Because sexcoin uses the scrypt algorithm for its POW, any information on mining Litecoin will be valid for Sexcoin. Sexcoin has enough network support to make GPU mining unprofitable.

I'll look around and see if I can find some current information on mining in general. Check back here in the next couple of days
