HoneyMiner, a desktop-based crypto mining software, has unveiled a new edition for MacOS customers.
HoneyMiner, which introduced in July 2018, accesses your CPU or GPU and works by using it to mine numerous cryptos. A central server factors the connected devices at a particular goal like ethereum, ethereum vintage, zcash, monero and other GPU-welcoming currencies.
“We have around 1,400 distinct kinds of GPUs on our network and it’s all about routing the proper computation to its most ideal use situation and whichever chain is ideal,” stated co-founder and CEO Noah Jessop.
The HoneyMiner app takes 2.5% of the proceeds for multi-GPU devices and 8% from single GPU customers.

The Mac OS app operates just like the Home windows edition. On launching the app you get 1,000 free satoshis and I was capable to mine the equivalent of 6 cents in 10 minutes.
This writer’s believed 24-hour earnings on a 2016 MacBook Professional operating a 2.9 GHz Intel Core i5 was 113 satoshis or – and really do not get jealous – $.012 USD. The expectation is that customers with far more highly effective personal computers will pace up the mining pool considerably.
HoneyMiner joins applications like DesktopMining.net and open up source solutions like MultiMiner in its purpose to make it uncomplicated to mine on nearly any equipment. They expanded to MacOS many thanks to general public desire.
“We introduced on Home windows initially since there are so many highly effective GPUs sitting under people’s desks around the environment and tons of folks receiving started out with mining do so on home windows,” stated Jessop. “We’ve now bought folks in 167 international locations on Honeyminer and have experienced virtually hundreds of requests for Mac OS from our neighborhood.”
Porting the app to MacOS was really a chore, stated Jessop.
“Mac was genuinely tough to operate super efficiently on equally CPU and GPU when readily available team invested months – maybe even as well prolonged – creating it function,” he stated. “If we let every person mine with the performance of the execs, program know-how gets much less of a barrier.”
