I'm only getting 13 kh/s using minerd with intel i5 and the lowfeemining.org pool. Shouldn't I be getting a better hashrate?
Assuming that IsraCoin uses the Scrypt-Hashing algorithm as suggested in the comments on the question, I found this hardware overview table on Litecoin (which also uses Scrypt).
The table lists a number of
Intel Core i5 processors ranging in hashrate from 12 to 55 kHash/s.
I.e. depending on what processor you have exactly and whether IsraCoin uses the same hashing scheme as LiteCoin, it is within the expected performance.
Hash Rate for any coin depends on these parameters like
- Coin Algorithm (Scrypt/SHA256d/x11)
- Fork Coin ( Like forked from
- litecoin/bitcoin) Coin is CPU/GPU based mining
- Better Stratum Connection b/w your hardware(system) and Mining Pool
- Network Bandwidth.
