Summary of lucasjones/cpuminer-multi

The lucasjones/cpuminer-multi is a GitHub repository which hosts the open-source project cpuminer-multi. This is essentially a multi-threaded CPU miner for various cryptocurrencies.

The miner is a console program that is executed from a shell. It is free for anyone to use, but please note that it does take a significant toll on your system resources.

The software can mine various types of coins by using many different algorithms such as, but not limited to, scrypt(N, 1, 1), SHA-256d, cryptonight, and yescrypt.

Specifically, the software supports the mining of currencies like:

  • Litecoin (LTC)
  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Monero (XMR)
  • and many others.

It's important to note that while you can use this software for mining, the value of coins mined and the cost of electricity used could end up being more than the value of the coins mined.

In other words, it's a good idea to ensure you know exactly what you're doing when you're getting into cryptocurrency mining.

To run the software, you will need to have the necessary build tools installed on your machine. You can follow the instructions provided in the README.md file in the repository to get started.

# [lucasjones/cpuminer-multi](https://github.com/lucasjones/cpuminer-multi) This is multi-threaded CPU miner for various cryptocurrencies, which supports many different types of algorithms. Supported currencies include: - Litecoin (LTC) - Bitcoin (BTC) - Monero (XMR) - and many others. Remember, it's important to check whether the cost of power consumption doesn't exceed the value of the coins mined.

Please bear in mind that the repository has not had updates since 2016. This highly suggests that it's no longer maintained. For this reason, many of the algorithms might have been updated or changed and this “outdated” version of mining software might not be efficient or compatible anymore. Also, be aware of potential security risks involved with using software that's no longer updated or maintained.
