I've gotten the impression that several of these miner apps just want to *advertise* out to the widest possible audience, even if they don't work. (I suppose they hope Mac people install/run, even if it will only mine XMR on the CPU, or such?) When I started into this, I tried a number of apps which claimed to mine on Macs on GPU
, but none of them worked. I guess several years ago, a few did, so maybe I just give the benefit of the doubt that they haven't updated their sites?
If you ever DO run across some mining
software optimized for the M1 (or later), I'll love to hear about (and probably run right out and buy one).
