The process of learning about mining a cryptocurrency sounds endless; but it aids seeking to find the most profitable crypto coin to match my tight budget GPU; which is Nvidia 820M 2G.
Today I am going to show you first impressions about mining BitCore (BTX).
So first things first;
What is BitCore (BTX)?
Bitcore is a full bitcoin node — your apps run directly on the peer-to-peer network. For wallet application development, additional indexes have been added into Bitcoin for querying address balances, transaction history, and unspent outputs.

What Mining Pool?
Well; I am testing ZPOOL.ca; it requirs no registration and allow your earned BitCore to be converted into bitcoins, so you get paid in bitcion.
You may try : MiningPoolHub and Suprnova.
I used "ccminer-2.0-rc3-bitcore-x64-cuda-7.5"; which is optimized for Nvidia GPUs and added suport for BitCore algo. Get it here : https://github.com/tpruvot/ccminer/releases
P.S. I should thank mr. "IMineBlocks" who suggested this app and recorded a video on youtube about how to mine BitCore. Check The Video Below:
Nvidia 820M 2G performance
The intesity was put to "9" whbich allows 512 threads producing a hash rate 137 KH/s.
The ZPOOL miner page (BTC adress) shows information about the minig process. Unfortunately I have to wait for 24hrs to check the earnings in BTC.
P.S. I know that mining with low performace GPUs won't be profitable; But, I learn as I go and finding more to test will improve my mining experience especially when I become ready to build my first mining rig.
1-- High performance GPUs produce faster calculation and so better earning rates.
2-- Zpool.ca is a nice service mining pool; it converts your earned BTX to BTC so you end up earning BTC while mining BTX.
3-- Th conversion from BTX to BTC takes more than 24hrs to finish which is a disadvantage.
Thanx 4 reading so far.
Have A Nice Day;
