CPU Mining

CPU mining, or Central Processing Unit mining, refers to the process of using a computer's CPU to mine cryptocurrencies. In the early days of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, CPU mining was a viable method for individuals to participate in the mining process and earn rewards.

However, as the networks grew and mining difficulty increased, more specialized hardware, such as Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), became more efficient and cost-effective for mining. Today, CPU mining is generally considered inefficient and unprofitable for most cryptocurrencies, as the computing power required to mine profitably using a CPU is significantly higher compared to dedicated mining hardware. Despite its limited practical application in modern cryptocurrency mining.
