Digibyte miners can select from 5 different algorithms: SHA-256, Scrypt, Odocrypt, Skein and Qubit, with RandomX coming soon.
SHA-256 represents Secure Hash Algorithm 256-bit and it's utilized for cryptographic security. Cryptographic hash calculations produce irreversible and exceptional hashes.
Odocrypt is a unique GPU/FPGA hashing algorithm made specifically for DigiByte that changes it difficulties every 10 days as an anti-ASIC method.
Scrypt algorithm was specifically designed to prevent lard-scale attacks by making it costly to perform. Skein algorithm is three times faster than SHA-256 and it can be mined using CPU and GPU, it is a variable bit algorithm based on Threefish block cipher.
Qubit Protocol, is a decentralized blockchain-empowered governance protocol that is intended to choose and finance the best new businesses in the quantum world.
Bitcoin uses the ASICs hardware which permit miners to utilize equipment made explicitly for Bitcoin or other SHA-256 algo coins. ASIC has the benefits over CPU, GPU and FPGAs due to being intended for one explicit assignment. They can mine Bitcoin at a higher hash rate than CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs.
