Old Androids Never Die, They Just Have A Few Screws Loose

Little Doges get bitten by DGC switchover

September 15, 2014

I've been doing cryptocoin mining as a hobby now for about a month with cheap, small, essentially obsolete hardware. Some of these coins can be mined simultaneously - up until last week, dogecoin wasn't one of them. Now that it's got auxpow support, my mining income from DGC has dropped from 80 coins an hour to about 120 coins a day. Since large-scale mining pools are able to do it on the side with their litecoin work, they're generating a lot more blocks than the smaller places (I was mining with TeamDoge, before) and essentially starving them out.

It sucks, but on the flipside I can mine LTC now too, which seems to actually carry some worth, but that really wasn't the point of DGC. I was doing it because it was fun, not because I wanted to make money. :P
