Mining Evolution (EVOX) and Morelo (MRL) Using RandomARQ Algorithm

Evolution (EVOX) and Morelo (MRL) are two relatively new crypto projects that both use the RandomARQ algorithm first introduced by ArQmA (ARQ) for mining (variation of RandomX). What is interesting about this algorithm is that it is more balanced in terms of CPU performance between Intel and AMD, unlike the standard RandomX algorithm where the latest AMD Ryzen processors are doing significantly better. So if you have some Intel CPUs that you want to use for mining you might want to get more details about those two projects, of course AMD users, especially with Ryzen processors might also check them out. What we don’t seem to like that much about both projects however is that apparently the majority of hashrate (over 95%) is centralized in a single Chinese pool called Walemo, and this is definitely not that good. As far as mining software is concerned, RandomARQ is widely supported by most popular RandomX miners out there such as XMRig, SRBMiner-Multi and XMR-STAK-RX.
