Crypto Mining on Mac's: Intel Mac Mini + MoneroCart!!

Post by macminergod »




Crypto mining on the fastest Intel Mac Mini Apple produced - the 6-Core 3.2 GHz i7 with MonerCart. MonerCart is a CPU mining-only crypto miner that will mine Monero (XMR). The Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536MB GPU is not compatible with a crypto miner at this time. We saw an average hashrate of 1512 h/s mining Monero (XMR) coin. CPU wattage was around 64 based on Intel Power Gadget monitor. CPU Temperature stayed around 147℉. We manually set the MoneroCart to mine using 12 threads because the Mac Mini has 12 cores. Visit ​​ for the latest crypto mining software and install guides for macOS and Windows Boot Camp.

Mining at 1505 H/s 24/7 365 days a year at the current XMR market price would net you $0.18 a day or $1.25 a week or $5.27 a month or $65.35 a year. Putting that in perspective more below could mean:

If you have 20x ($1249 per unit currently or $24,980 total) of this Mac Mini unit running 24x7 365 days a year you could net around $1300 a year. At this rate, you would make back your spend in 19 years. However, given the current volatility value of crypto, you could make that back much much sooner or much much later, possibly never.


System:
macOS Catalina 10.15.7
Mac Mini (2018) (Macmini8,1)
3.2 GHz 6-Core (12 cores total) Intel Core i7-8700B
32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 Ram
1 TB SSD
Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB
