Lyra2Z Algorithm – List of Lyra2z coins, miner and hashrate

In recent times when most of the algorithms are being dominated by ASICs there are few that still supports CPU mining. CryptoNight is one such algorithm that falls under “CPU mineable” category as it is designed to be suitable for consumer grade CPUs. GPUs too can mine them, in fact they are more powerful in comparison with CPU. However algorithms like such are made feasible for CPU mining and they give great returns to CPU miners. If you love mining CryptoNight algorithm or its coins then you may also like mining Lyra2Z algorithm. Here we’ll list all coins that are based on Lyra2z. But before that we’ll see what’s Lyra2z, its supported miners and the hashrates that you can expect on this algorithm.

Lyra2Z Algorithm

In early 2017 Zcoin implemented Lyra2Z algorithm in order to combat botnets and cloud mining operations. Zcoin uses this algorithm temporarily until the development of MTP is complete. Once that is done they’ll will transition to MTP (Merkle Tree Proof) algorithm which seem to focus more on CPU mining.

According to Zcoin website; Lyra2z is a chained algorithm that uses Blake256 for first round and Lyra2 for the final round. There is no whitepaper or any additional information that we could find for this algorithm. However Lyra2z is designed with both GPU and CPU in mind. This algorithm practically yields good returns for both GPU as well as CPU miners. Not just that; but this algorithm uses very little power / electricity and as a result you don’t have to worry about high GPU temperatures while mining.

Lyra2z was recently added to NiceHash marketplace and is currently ASIC resistance. There might be ASIC in existence which we are not sure. However it’s pretty obvious that there is FPGA available for Lyra2Z (in development still) that is said to produce ~20 Mh/s and that equals 6 x 1080 TI. Due to this mining popular Lyra2z coins using GPU or CPU won’t be profitable anymore. However you can try out mining new coins which is what we’ll be listing here.

Lyra2z Miner

Here are few things to note before you mine Lyra2z algorithm / coins. Lyra2z uses core clock which means overclocking memory is of no use. You don’t have to worry about setting the power limit because it only draws less than 60% of your card’s power consumption. You might experience crashes while overclocking and it even makes your computer to shutter a bit. However your GPU never gets hotter. Lyra2z is CPU friendly, runs quieter and cooler.

Most of the mining platforms like Hive OS, SMOS (Simple Mining OS) and Awesome Miner has CCMiner and that supports Lyra2z. Also since this algorithm can be mined using CPU, AMD and NVIDIA GPU there are many mining applications available. Following are the list of miners available for Lyra2z.


Zcoin official CPU miner: (no binaries available)

JayDDee / cpuminer-opt:



TDXminer v2.2.2: (3% dev fee, closed source / Beta release and only Linux available)


Tourgasm ccminer:

djm34 / ccminer-msvc:

Nemos Miner: (another open source NVIDIA miner)

Cool Miner: (closed source and 1% dev fee)

zFastminer: (Powerful and fastest NVIDIA miner for Zcoin and Lyra2z. It is closed source and contains 1% dev fee)

Aside from mining it directly if you are looking to rent hash power then you can always opt mining rig rentals. There are many mining rigs available at affordable cost.

Lyra2z hashrates

Lyra2z leans more towards NVIDIA. It can be mined with AMD cards as well but the performance will be slightly low and it won’t yield much profit. Anyways both bear market and ASICs have affected the mining profits and there are no worthwhile GPU mineable coins currently. Following are the GPU hashrates that you can expect on Lyra2z algorithm. The below information has been gathered from several online sources including pool benchmarks and user reports. These are just rough numbers and it varies depending on the miner and ones mining environment.

GTX 1080 TI - 2.8 to 3.2 Mh/s
1080 - 2.3 Mh/s
1070 TI - 2 Mh/s
1070 - 1.8 / 1.9 Mh/s
1060 6GB - 1.1 Mh/s
1060 3 GB - 720 kh/s
1050 ti - 600 kh/s
980 Ti - 1.20 mh/s
970 - 800 kh/s
