Resistance is committed to democratic and accessible mining. Our CPU miner uses yespower, a powerful hashing algorithm based on yescrypt that combines computationally expensive and sequential memory-hard hashing in a way that slows down GPUs to CPU-like speeds, and limits potential advantages for FPGAs and ASICs.
With our CPU miner, all you need to start mining on our CPU-optimized blockchain is a laptop or desktop computer running Linux, macOS, or Windows.
You have two options available to start mining:
Regular users are advised to begin the process of mining Resistance coins by downloading the Resistance Desktop Application, which, alongside ResDEX and the Resistance wallet, includes our CPU friendly miner.
This option allows users to mine more fluidly and is easy to operate. Many users opt to install the Resistance Desktop Application for its convenience. The app is compatible with macOS, Windows, and Linux and is used to manage and mine our CPU-optimized coins.
