How to Mine BLOC on any Device
The BLOC cryptocurrency is decentralized and fungible which make it a desirable cryptocurrency generating opportunities for cryptocurrency miners. The Mobile Miner platform allows you to begin mining BLOC from any device including your old mobile phones or smart devices.
If you are an experienced with mining BLOC cryptocurrency, getting started is as simple as entering a monero wallet address and pressing start. You will see the usual mining operations take place as your machine begins mining BLOC.
If you are considering mining BLOC, or have already started, you may know that BLOC uses the Cryptonote hashing algorithm which means that it requires the CPU instead of GPU.
Traditional mining operations are based on GPU, and orientated towards Bitcoin and other early cryptocurrencies. In order to assist and encourage decentralization, Cryptocurrencies have started to combat large mining operations using algorithms like Cryptonote which incentivizes small groups and casual miners with more frequent rewards and by reducing the barrier to entry.
BLOC mining involves hashing using the Cryptonote algorithm, similar to Monero. Like other cryptocurrencies using Cryptonote or Cryptonight, BLOC can be mined from any device using our platform. If you are mining cryptocurrency for the first time, you may choose to familiarize yourself with a few key terms relating to cryptocurrency mining.
You should understand that both the Mining Pool and Mobile Miner facilitate the mining of BLOC, but that all of your payouts will be in XMR currencies. You can learn more about your mining payouts and mining pools.
It's also important to understand the role that your device performance has with mining any cryptocurrency, including BLOC. Like other coins using Cryptonote, the BLOC cryptocurrency is mined primarily using CPU as opposed to your GPU like the popular Bitcoin.
Mining BLOC using CPU provides an opportunity for casual miners to participate as the threshold and barrier to entry is much lower. With Cryptonote and other hashing algorithms that use CPU, you can expect to receive a mining reward hour, or even faster.
You will be able to optimize your BLOC mining by using your most powerful device, or using multiple devices to mine. Mobile Miner makes this easy by allowing you to begin mining for BLOC from any device equipped with a web browser.
After understanding how to mine BLOC, we recommend that you try to test your mining speed on the device you plan to use. You can review your statistics after a short time, and use online calculators to determine the profitability of mining BLOC on that device.
