Miner Risk Medium Reward High Time Investment Large Suggested Ships Krait MkII Keelback Cobra MkIII Asp Explorer Type-6 Transporter Adder Python Anaconda Imperial Cutter Type-9 Heavy Federal Corvette Suggested Ship Upgrades Mining Laser Refinery Cargo Racks Collector Limpets Prospector Limpets Abrasion Blaster Pulse Wave Analyser Seismic Charge Launcher Sub-surface Displacement Missile Miners extract metals, minerals, and other resources from asteroids and sell them for profit. Mining involves traveling to sites such as pristine planetary rings, identifying resource-rich asteroids, and using specialized Hardpoint modules to extract and collect their resources.

To mine, pilots require three optional internal modules: a Refinery to refine collected resources into Commodities for sale, one or more Cargo Racks to carry the refined Commodities, and one or more Mining Lasers, Abrasion Blasters, Sub-surface Displacement Missiles, or Seismic Charge Launchers. The Detailed Surface Scanner, Prospector Limpet, and Pulse Wave Analyser can also be equipped to more easily locate ideal mining sites and valuable asteroids, and the Collector Limpet can be used to more efficiently gather raw resources. Miners who choose to delve inhabited systems rather than uncharted ones can purchase system data from Universal Cartographics or scan a Navigation Beacon in order to determine the quality of a system's asteroid clusters or planetary rings.

Some miners prefer small, nimble ships for mining, as they are better at maneuvering around asteroids, in tight asteroid belts and rings at higher velocities. However others prefer larger ships such as the Python, Imperial Clipper, Federal Corvette, Imperial Cutter and the Anaconda, which are not as maneuverable, but can equip all the beneficial Limpet Controllers and carry a large number of limpets for their use, while still having room for cargo and shields, increasing efficiency. Additionally, the larger ships are better at defending themselves from pirates while mining, though such threats can generally be avoided in the uncharted systems beyond human habitation centers.

An ideal mining ship requires at least one Class 2 hardpoint to fit larger mining tools for more efficient or profitable mining, and enough optional internal slots to hold a Refinery, a Collector Limpet Controller, a Prospector Limpet Controller, a Detailed Surface Scanner, and at least one Cargo Rack. Mobility is also an important factor, due to needing to find more specific asteroids, and aiming certain mining tools. At least 4 hardpoints, with one medium, are required to hold one of every mining tool. A Fighter Hangar is also recommended, as it lets a ship defend against pirates while its hardpoints are replaced with mining tools.

Mining is currently possible at asteroid belts or planetary rings (including icy as of 2.1/1.6), although it is the most profitable in a Pristine Metallic area. They can be targeted and flown to in supercruise, just like any destination within a system. Marked extraction sites can only be seen at ranges of 1kls or closer. Asteroids in planetary rings can also be mined from - RES are common places for NPC miners to congregate in, but pirates will also spawn here.

Mining is not limited to extraction sites, which is much safer since there is virtually no NPCs spawning outside them. Flying at any part of a ring system at less than 1Mm/s will result in a safe drop approximately 7km away from the ring. It is important, however, to identify the metallic rings before attempting this. When you have arrived, you will see a number (from a handful to many dozens) of asteroids, which you can then mine. A good starting spot for mining are systems with industrial economies.

Elite Dangerous: Beyond Chapter Four (3.3) introduced new aspects to mining: using new tools and exploration mechanics, miners can investigate rings to locate the best spots to start their mining sessions, and then the best specific asteroids to probe and excavate for rewards.

Currently there's one type of asteroid with a distinct shape and size that can be detonated. It's a medium sized rock, roundish "teardrop" in shape -or a pointy edge on one side and a fat bottom on the other. With the Pulse Wave Analyser it should always show a bright, brilliant yellow glow even as you approach it. There are fissures on the surface. Use the Seismic Charge Launcher to place Seismic Charges within the fissures. Then explode it to reveal valuable minerals.

Make sure to bind a Mining Laser (preferably in its own firing group) just like you would do with any other weapon in the game. Fly within range (being 500 m) of the asteroid and blast away with the Mining Laser. You have to hold down the trigger for a while (depending on the quality of Mining Laser you have bought) before a fragment chips off.

Select the fragment of rock as a target. They are quite small and hard to detect visually but do show up as white contacts on your radar. When selected, you get details of the contents of the fragment, e.g. Bauxite (9.7%) Coltan (21.2%). Note that the mineral name which shows up first in the HUD doesn't necessarily represent the most valuable mineral! The mineral content is how much of a ton of cargo can be extracted from the fragment. E.g. if you scoop and process three 35% Indite shards you end up with 1 ton of Indite. Fragments range in mineral content from ~5% to ~65%. Asteroids contain 1 to 3 different minerals while fragments from the asteroids contain up to 2 of those minerals.

To collect with a cargo scoop, first, engage your scoop (just like you would with your landing gear or hardpoints), then fly slowly towards the target. Upon engaging the Cargo Scoop you will find that a blue box will have appeared on the lower left of your HUD. On there you should, if pointing at the rock, see an icon in the cross-hairs (the box). Continue to fly slowly towards the rock while holding the rock in the middle of the cargo scoop's cross-hairs until you have successfully acquired it.

Asteroid fragments are more difficult to scoop than regular cargo, as their movement is more complex (not to mention the fact that you want to avoid hitting an asteroid while you're focused on scooping!) For this reason, it's advisable to use very slow speeds of 15 m/s while scooping. Furthermore, fragments will "decay" over time, meaning they slowly lose integrity until they disappear, so do not mine more than you can collect!

To collect with a collector limpet controller you must purchase limpets ahead of time in any munitions store (the place you buy your ammo). Collector limpets have 2 modes: quick single-collection and autonomous area-collection. For mining, the area-collection mode is optimal. Limpets must bound to a fire group like a weapon.

To activate a limpet in area mode, be sure that no cargo or fragment is targeted. This is important as activating a limpet with a collectible item targeted will activate the limpet in single-collection mode. Once in area mode, the limpet will automatically collect any fragments a specific distance from you based on the class and rating of the controller. While this happens you can continue with other actions such as fragmenting, refining, and monitoring your surroundings. Use collector drones with caution near spinning asteroids, since their basic AI doesn't account for the movement of the asteroid. You can equip multiple collector drone limpet controls assuming you have enough internal compartments.

Once a fragment enters your cargo hold, it will be deposited in the refinery. It can be accessed on the right panel under cargo tab, then there is a refinery tab on the left column. The first bin is the depositing bin, where you will find your fragment. New minerals will attempt to drop into the refinery bins below. Depending on class your refinery will have between 1 and 10 of these bins.

Items that appear in the depositing bin will automatically "stack" into the refinery bins below if a refinery bin that already contains that mineral exists. It will also drop into empty bins automatically. If no bin is available, you will have to vent your refinery (see next paragraph). This will happen until the bin reaches 100% at which point it will be emptied, the leftover mineral will remain in the depositing bin, and 1 ton of cargo (one unit of whatever mineral you have collected) appears in your cargo hold. Once your cargo hold is full, you can return to a station and sell your goods.

You also have the option to "vent" the contents of your refinery. This is useful if you have a nearly-full refinery of bauxite and you find an asteroid with gold (or whatever else you prioritize). When no bin is available, minerals will not leave the depositing bin and will block it from accepting new fragments. When this happens you must either vent a refinery bin to free up space or vent the mineral from the depositing bin. NOTE: Doing this will destroy the mineral and you will not be able to recover it.

The value of a mineral is scaled to the supply/demand meaning that selling minerals where there are many other players selling the same mineral will result in a smaller profit per ton as demand for that item is low with so many suppliers. Systems that are both refinery economies and have an asteroid field will tend to give you a lower price compared to what you would get if you were to travel somewhere more distant to the source (source being asteroid fields). Also, checking the bulletin board is very important, since mining mission rewards can reach hundreds of thousands of credits. The most sought-after minerals in missions are painite, osmium and platinum.

Styx is an excellent example of where we see a massive drop in prices. It has both mining equipment for sale, is very close to the spawn point for new players, has mineable asteroid fields and is a refinery economy (means it will have a constant demand for minerals to refine), it is therefore going to be very popular to sell minerals there which is going to lead to a price drop due to a saturated market.

Keep in mind that carrying valuable resources around attracts pirates and other players may also try to rob you. With mining lasers attached you will be less effective at defending yourself so don't lug rare metals around too long.

This is a table displaying the approximate market prices for mined minerals, metals, and chemicals. Most high value minerals, including Void Opals and Alexandrite, are gemstones that can only be obtained via core mining, while some such as Painite and Low Temperature Diamonds can be mined with lasers. Market prices for mined commodities vary depending on the economy type of a station and its level of demand for a specific good.

This is a rough guide to which materials are available to mine. Materials cannot be sold for credits, but are used by Engineers and Technology Brokers and can be exchanged for powerful modifications and modules.

Miners are a popular target for piracy, and pirates can often be found lurking around planetary rings in inhabited systems, where they will attempt to scan any ship that arrives in their vicinity. If a scanned ship is carrying anything other than limpets, they will attack and try to seize its cargo. The danger posed by pirates can be prepared for in the following ways:

Multiple ships or a Wing can cooperate to mine more efficiently by specializing each ship's loadout. For example, one pilot can fly a speedy, low-mass ship such as the Asp Scout equipped only with Seismic Charge Launcher, Abrasion Blasters, and prospector limpets while the second pilot can fly a larger ship such as the Anaconda with ample cargo space, collector limpets, and a Refinery.[2]

The miner ship should crack a suitable deep core asteroid, then use the Abrasion Blaster on any surface deposits. While the refinery ship collects and refines the ore, the miner ship can move on and locate another deep core asteroid with its prospector limpets. This process can be repeated until a ship runs out of cargo space, limpets, or ammunition. Cooperating pilots can then return to a station to split the cargo; take care to avoid jettisoning cargo for this purpose within a station's jurisdiction to avoid penalties for littering.[2]

best monero (xmr) mining hardware to use in 2021

best monero (xmr) mining hardware to use in 2021

Standing among the best-known anonymous cryptocurrencies on the market, Monero (XMR) has been enabling secure and reliable transactions since 2014. As of April 27, 2020, the XMR cryptocurrency ranks 14th in terms of market capitalization which makes Monero a desirable asset to have in the crypto portfolio in 2020.

There are several ways to obtain XMR you can either exchange your crypto to Monero, buy XMR at an exchange, or, like a passionate blockchain enthusiast, mine it. Weve investigated Monero mining hardware to provide you with the best ones.

In late November 2019, the Monero blockchain hard forked and switched its core hashing algorithm, CryptoNightR, to a new Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC) resistant, RandomX. The team behind Monero claimed that such a transition would make the XMR mining more secure, thus eliminating any fraudulent interference to the Monero network. Unlike the relatively simple CryptoNightR hashing algorithm, RandomX is a more complicated type of a Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus algorithm.

So, from that aspect, I really like that RandomX is the thing and that it is CPU heavy [] I like the fact that we went towards RandomX, the only thing I dont like is how complex it is because its very difficult to understand kind of everything going on, said the lead Monero maintainer, Alexander Snipa Blair.

Despite the communitys fears that the new algorithm might kill GPU mining, RandomX is optimized for GPUs and CPUs mining. However, GPU mining shows less performance and efficiency when working with RandomX. GPU XMR mining might seem less profitable than the CPU one.

AMD is considered to be one of the best high-performance computing and graphics solution provider on the market. EPYC 7742 has 64 CPU cores and power consumption of 225w. This is a truly powerful machine hence, the price for such an advanced processor corresponds to the quality.

This mining rig will be a nice purchase in case your electricity bills are way too high. In combination with a solid memory, AMD Ryzen 5 3600 with 6 CPU cores will be a great solution for profitable Monero (XMR) mining.

This graphics card will allow you to mine multiple coins of different algorithms including RandomX (XMR), Ethash (ETH, ETC), Cuckaroom29 (GRIN). Despite being a veteran of the industry, Radeon RX Vega still can show better results than other GPUs on the market.

As mentioned above, Monero GPU mining is not as profitable as XMR CPU mining, yet NVIDIA provides the industry with top-notch graphics cards for mining to be smooth. GTX 1070 Ti is applicable not only for XMR mining but also allows for ETH, ETC mining.

Monero mining is not as difficult as might seem at first glance. However, before start mining XRM, do your own research on the basic features regarding mining in general and Monero mining in particular. The best way to get into XMR is to study Monero in specialized communities like Telegram groups and Reddit channels.

Changelly is a secure instant crypto exchange that has 150+ cryptocurrencies available to be swapped and bought at market-best rates. Operating since 2015, the platform and its mobile application attract over a million visitors monthly, who all enjoy quick and simple exchanges, low transparent fees, and 24/7 live support.

elite dangerous mining equipment needed ed mining

elite dangerous mining equipment needed ed mining

Mining requires a lot of equipment. Heavy equipment and needs many slots. Large ships are better for handling more slots, but harder to maneuver. Smaller ships are easier to maneuver but harder to properly outfit for the different types of mining. You need cargo space to hold your limpets and store your refined mining fragments. Mining is impossible without cargo space. The amount of cargo space you can potentially have directly relates to the ship you use. Also, keep in mind the different classes of the below will perform differently giving a different experience.

For example, a large Cutter with 3 limpet controllers will mine very fast with so many limpets collecting, but at the sacrifice of how much cargo it could hold. Plus that large ship in the case of the Cutter is a pig to move around. A Python on the other hand, in my opinion, has the best of many worlds. The Python, only needing a medium-sized landing pad, can also sell at more stations, but of course, will hold less in its cargo hold than a large ship.
