Raptoreum mining is a new cryptocurrency making waves around the internet. We have been fielding a lot of requests from customers asking if they can purchase the AMD Ryzen Dedicated Server and use it for mining. The most important question is if this is profitable? Will the costs of the server be covered? If you are using the server for other purposes. Are you looking to offload some processing power to generate a new source of income? Is it a good idea to run a crypto mining app alongside your important workloads? is it safe and secure? The short answer is NO.
Let’s dig into the profitability of mining Raptoreum on a dedicated server. Using the tool available on mineraptoreum.com. I am selecting the Ryzen 5950x because that is one of the CPUs that we have available on our website.
1 x Ryzen 9 5950X's which have a hashrate of 4247 h/s each. Total for all Ryzen 9 5950X's is 4247 h/s Estimated Number of Raptoreum You Could Mine Per Day: 50 Which at the current price of $0.04470444 (USD) per Raptoreum, gives an estimated gross daily return of: $2.24 USD.
The cheapest 5950x configuration we are currently offering is $189 per month. You will earn $67.20 from mining. The end result will be a loss of $121.80 per month.
If you already have a server for other purposes and wish to make a little extra income. CPU mining may be a good idea. But I would still strongly recommend against it. You will be loading the CPU to 100%. Your main application will no longer be as responsive. Next, running unproven mining apps alongside your primary application can pose some security concerns.
CPU mining on VPS is possible, but the CPU is virtualized. You will be waiting for a very long time to see any results. It is also not profitable.
