Secure and Reliable Platform

Our number one priority is uptime, reliable payouts, and a secure platform. We will never jeopardize client security or privacy for any new feature


Flexible Usage

Although we recommend you use our service responsibly, we will not dictate you on how to use our software. How the software is used in ultimately the end user's responsibility.


Low Fees & Rapid Payouts

We payout 70% of mined commissions, at minimum intervals of 0.3 XMR (Monero). We utilize the rest to help maintain our fast & secure network while adding new features to SocketMiner.

Why is SocketMiner mining Monero?



To mine Monero, you have to calculate hashes with an algorithm called Cryptonight. This algorithm is very compute heavy and was designed to run well on consumer CPUs.


What Hash Rate?

For an Intel i7 CPU (one of the fastest desktop CPUs) you should see a hashrate of about 90h/s. A native miner would get to 140h/s.


Why not GPU?

There are solutions to run the Cryptonight algorithm on a GPU instead, but the benefit is only about 1.75x, , not 10000x like for other algorithms used by Ethereum.
