Monero Hard Fork and RandomX: Make CPU Mining Great Again

Monero (XMR) has successfully hardforked on November 30th, at block number 1978433. The fork has changed the CryptoNightR mining algorithm to the new RandomX Proof-of-Work algorithm.   Although the main aim of the upgrade was keeping Monero completely resistant to ASIC mining, thus maintaining the coin decentralized, RandomX has essentially moved XMR mining to CPU, […]
