Just two weeks ago we have shared an interesting statistics based on the users of the widely used Hive OS Linux Mining OS that has shown the rapid increase of miners going to Kaspa (KAS) and now we are seeing the newcomer NEXA as well. So, in the last two weeks ETC miners have dropped 2% down to 24%, KAS is remaining strong at 12% and keeps its second place, even though there is a 2% drop these as well. RavenCoin (RVN) is still number three keepings its 9%, and the newcomer NEXA is fourth (wasn’t in the top 10 two weeks ago) with 6% pushing down ERG to the fifth place and the rest of the chart of the top coins remains pretty much the same. What this means is that NEXA has attracted some ETC and some KAS miners as well as some miners of other coins in order to secure its 6% which is half of what KAS has and 1/4 of what ETC still has as a share.
It is no wonder that NEXA is gaining the attention of more miners thanks to being a relatively new project and its higher profitability compared to other crypto projects that can be mined. It will be interesting to see how things will progress in the next few weeks and how it will fare compared to other minable coins that have a higher percentage of miners. It is especially interesting to note that there isn’t a change in the percentage of the RVN considering that just recently video cards with 4GB of video memory are no longer capable of mining the coins due to the DAG size reaching close to 4GB. The recent development of more mining software to support Dual-mining and Triple-mining of not only Ethash/ETChash coins together with Zilliqa (ZIL) such as KAS + ZIL or NEXA + ZIL might also help in drawing more users away from ETC GPU mining thanks to further increasing the profitability of mining KAS or NEXA over their standalone mining only.
It will be interesting to see how things will change in about two more weeks when we are expecting to see FLUX have its halving at block number 1313200 (around February 8th) when the block reward will get reduced from 75 to 37.5 coins. Currently FLUX is sitting at number 9 with stable 3% in the last two weeks, though after the halving we might see a drop in that number if there is an outflow of miners due to the drop in profitability of mining FLUX. And with the market like it is at the moment a lot of miners are hopping around to what is the most profitable at the moment and not necessarily what project may be the most viable in the long term.
