Some of our community's most commonly asked questions on CCN Mining
We're allowing anything to join. Obviously, besides a Windows 95 machine that doesn't have any good CPU or GPU. For CPU mining, we recommend i7+ or similar processors For GPU mining, we recommend NVIDIA or AMD with 4GB+ GPU VRAM.
CCN Pro only supports Nvidia at the momentOperation system: only Linux and Windows are supported
You can buy the CCN mining pass with a very small amount of CCN’s stablecoin, UCCN. The amount used to buy a CCN mining pass will go back as CCN tokens, creating a deflation mechanism to guarantee the benefit of our token holders in the long run.
You can calculate how much is required for you to stake using our metapower calculator: https://www.computecoin.network/Calculator
Shortly after the Huygens launch.
We value growth in our mining community. We want someone who plans on staying with us for the long run.
Yes. The more collateral you put in means that you have more metapower to contribute, which is proportional to the mining reward you receive.
We are still developing the cloud computing marketplace, which we hope will be available in late April.
This depends on what types of applications are running on CCN and is determined by the supply and demand curves.
Considering that we are still in our testnet phase, we only onboarded a few clients to test out the performance of our miners. You will see a huge difference in the resource utilization rate after our mainnet launch and will be paid by the client using your computing resources.

As long as your rigs are connected to Oort, technically your machines don't have to do anything for you to receive mining reward. Offering miners mining rewards enables Oort to recruit more computing resources and helps the tech team improve the testnet itself, as well as the mainnet.
Oort will launch a computing marketplace, where miners can earn service fees while providing their computing resources to the customers. This will require miners to update their rig configurations and put their rigs into work. Please note, when a miner is renting their computing resources to customers, the working rigs would not be able to keep mining on other networks like Arweave.
You will be able to merge mine CCN and XCH with CCN Mini. With Chia being highly reliant on latency, this will depend on your machine’s setup. If you have a poor Chia mining setup, you may see a difference in latency, but not a drastic one.
Our existing miners already merged mined CCN with other cryptocurrencies and experienced no issues, they are very satisfied with this feature.
