Block Rewards

Our block reward model uses an innovative approach - block rewards starts small but increases with time.

At the beginning, every block-chain has a small number of transactions per day and the block data is still a small file but with time the network will grow and the data size will go up. The mining effort will be bigger and more miners will be needed to keep it running sound and safe.

To fairly reward the mining effort we will start with 5 CCX per block and increase it by 0.25 CCX every month until we reach 20 CCX per block (max reward in 5 years time).

List of compatible miners

As we mentioned already this algorithm is mineable using both CPU as well as GPU. Mining applications are available for CPU, NVIDIA and AMD GPU. Following are the list of miners that are capable of mining CN-Fast algorithm.

XMR-Stak: https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr-stak/releases (CPU, AMD-GPU and NVIDIA-GPU)

MSR-Stak: https://github.com/masari-project/masari-xmr-stak/releases/ (Same as XMR-Stak; only developer fees are routed to the Masari development fund.)

XMRig CPU only: https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig/releases/latest (Powerful CPU miner for CN-Fast)

AMD XMRig: https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig-amd/releases

NVIDIA XMRig: https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig-nvidia/releases/

SRBMiner for AMD (Windows only)

CastXMR: http://www.gandalph3000.com/ (High-speed miner for RX Vega graphics cards)

JCE Miner: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3281187.0 (Supports CPU and AMD GPUs; no NVIDIA)

From the above list pick your favorite mining software and get ready to configure the miner. If you have not used any of these miners before then we recommend you to go through this XMR-Stak and XMRig beginners guide. Both these miners support CPU, NVIDIA and AMD. So in this mining guide instead of getting into all those setups, we’ll just share the sample configuration for XMR-stak and XMRig miner. But before that let’s first pick a mining pool.
