Turning back the Clock

There was a time when the ever increasing difficulty and the usage of GPU which consumes huge amounts of power started a debate on whether to revert back to CPU mining.   For CPU mining, other algorithms have to be included so that GPU would not have an advantage over CPU and CPU can be a mining tool.   Given that all computers need CPU, it will cost less on the equipment as well as provide for additional income for those having CPU spare cycles.

Some of the innovative guys at Bitcoin started experimenting with the concept and they did come back with a series of interesting CPU coins which I will discuss in a subsequent blog post.
