Any coin that are worth mining on a CPU?
« on: May 03, 2014, 03:12:13 PM »
I know that GPUs are a whole lot more efficient than CPUs, but I have a few old laptops that aren't being put to any use that don't have any graphics cards.  It would be nice to let them mine some crypto for me with their CPUs, but I'm not really sure of any that would be worthwhile.

Anyone have any recommendations on cryptocurrencies that would be worth mining with CPUs?

There are certain coins that may be worth your time, depending on your CPU's. I would recommend giving ripple, primecoin, or quark a try.

If you mine Ripple or Primecoin, you can help solve complicated math problems for humanity at the same time.

I did not know that :P

I've heard of all of these, particularly Primecoin (I think I may have seen something on YouTube, but I'm not sure). Do you have any first-hand experience using them, CryptoMoms?
