When mining on a processor is more profitable than on a video card. Mining ZEPH coin - Zephyr protocol (detailed guide)

Do you think that CPU mining is long dead? But no! Thanks to a coin like the Zephyr protocol (ZEPH), cryptocurrency mining on a central processor is now much more profitable than on a video card. For example, on our test bench, where an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X processor and an Nvidia Geforce RTX 4090 video card are installed, at the moment it is the processor that produces ZEPH by more than SEVEN TIMES! more income (about $3.5 per day) than the top-end Geforce RTX 4090 video card on the most profitable GPU coins known to us (Nexa, Alephium) - about $0.5 per day. These calculations are relevant at the time of writing this material and at an electricity cost of $0.1 per kW/h. The mining profitability of both GPU and CPU can change significantly over time. You can always check the current mining profitability on a video card and processor in our Profit-mine.com calculator. Read detailed information about the coin, as well as instructions on how to mine the ZEPH coin under Windows.

Today, on November 18, 2023, unexpectedly, exactly 10 years have passed since the registration of the domain Cryptoage.com. About a year before that, in the fall of 2012, we encountered something new and unfamiliar called Bitcoin for the first time, but didn't pay much attention to it. The initial impression was that Bitcoin was just another type of electronic wallet, similar to Webmoney, Skrill, or PayPal. A deeper understanding of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology came in the spring of 2013 during another Bitcoin hype, when its price surged from $20 to $200. The first attempts at mining Bitcoin on a Radeon HD 7700 graphics card yielded about 1 BTC per month. At that time, Bitcoin could already be exchanged for rubles and withdrawn to a bank card or mobile phone. The ability to convert electricity bills into bank transfers with a multiplier of x5 or even more significantly influenced the initial trust in cryptocurrencies.

The increased scrutiny of cryptocurrencies by governments has posed challenges for crypto enthusiasts who value the anonymity of cryptocurrencies. One of the major issues is the requirement to undergo the so-called KYC (Know Your Customer) process on all major and well-known crypto exchanges. While not long ago, second-tier exchanges like Bybit or Kucoin allowed users to utilize their services to some extent without completing KYC, recently, KYC has become mandatory for all. This trend extends to all crypto exchanges that have gained popularity in one way or another.

Tether is primarily known for its stablecoin, USDt, but in addition to that, Tether also issues stablecoins pegged to the Euro (EURt), the Chinese Yuan (CNHt), the Mexican Peso (MXNt), and gold (XAUt). This seems logical so far, as the company specializes in issuing tokens tied to the value of other assets, and the introduction of other stablecoins by Tether doesn't raise any questions. However, it appears that Tether has decided not to limit itself to just one direction in its business, and it is currently actively working on a specialized program for miners, similar to what the company Hiveon offers.
