Crypto Mining: Separating Fact From Fiction
Following mainnet launch last year, Conflux has seen tremendous growth in the number of nodes and mining farms in the US and EU, and currently has over 900 nodes across 26 countries. Mining Conflux has proven to be highly profitable — consistently named as a top 15 coin to mine — and in some cases has been more profitable than mining Ethereum. This has contributed to a large number of independent miners, which currently outnumber mining pools in our ecosystem.
