Raptoreum is a Proof of Work (POW) blockchain which uses the Ghostrider algorithm. Ghostrider was explicitly created for Raptoreum, and is designed to keep speciality hardware such as ASICs or FPGA off the Raptoreum network.
Ghostrider’s technical details can be found on the GhostRider Whitepaper.
CPU mining is still the most efficient way to mine Raptoreum, but GPUs can also be used. GPU mining however, is not as efficient as CPU mining.
Mining Software #
ARM Mining #
You can mine Raptoreum on ARM devices using Wyvern Miner, as well as XMRig. Both have to be compiled for ARM platforms, and work best on ARMv8. This is experimental and not officially supported. Mining on mobile phones is not advisable due to potential dangers involving lithium batteries and overheating.
