Gpu mining is comprised mostly of three applications. Cudaminer (Nvidia), CCminer (Nvidia), CGminer (Ati). We will talk about these three apps in the following paragraphs. Cudaminer In the early days of mining there was no ability for Nvidia users to use CUDA technology to accelerate mining of bitcoins. Cudaminer came to the rescue as it uses CUDA to squeeze up to 200% ┬ámore performance out of nVidia cards, as compared to OpenCL mining applications used previously. CudaMiner supports the following Algorithms: scrypt scrypt-jane scrypt-N keccak blake ( in github version only)   CCminer (Nvidia) This is the younger brother of Cudaminer and is used to mine other altcoins instead of

The first and most important thing to consider is which algorithm to use since there are so many out there, sha256, scrypt, scrypt-n, x11, x13, groestl, blake, fresh to name a few. Besides that a new algorithm could be invented and implemented. The coin also needs to have a vast social media coverage a long time before the coins launch using its main powers, For example Snowballs coin (balls) has a 13% per day interest just for holding it in your wallet. Pos coins although are a different piece of the same pie. The first months of the coins life merchants and exchanges acceptance must be very high, this will
