I am creating a new thread since I’ve noticed that the majority of the primecoin threads and posts are a little old.
I would like to know if mining XPM in 2016 is still possible and in what way. I am mostly interested in some information regarding the hardware required to mine nowadays (some examples of cpu, gpu etc) and what hash rates I can get from them. More specifically how many coins I would get per day or something like that. It would also be great if somebody can give me some insight on cloud mining using the service Digital Ocean that is posted on primecoin.io. Furthermore, it is possible to mine at least some coins using boards like raspberry pi, odroid, banana pi, orange pi etc?
Before you answer, please do NOT refer to the electricity costs, since everytime I ask something similar to other forums everybody starts referring to the electricity costs by default. I am aware of that. I am looking to see how many coins I could mine in 2016 and some hardware costs, or some cloud mining costs. Any other information or ideas are welcome of course.
