A doge miner is hardware that uses its processing power to mine Dogecoins by helping complete people's transactions. When a transaction is completed, a number of Dogecoins are created and divided amongst the miners that helped with the transaction. Miners fall into 4 categories, CPU, GPU, FPGA, and ASIC.

CPU Edit

Stands for: Central Processing Unit

CPUs are the most basic (and usually weakest) type of mining hardware, and every computer has one, making them easy to attain. CPUs usually have a hashrate of <10 MH/s, (Megahash per second) and mining solo with a CPU will not usually offer much benefit.

GPU Edit

Stands for: Graphics Processing Unit

GPUs are one step up from CPUs and will usually offer a hashrate from 10 MH/s to 1GH/s and they have fairly high availability. Their purpose is usually to do the heavy lifting for complex graphics, and that's the same type of math that it takes to mine Dogecoins. They are one of the most common forms of Dogecoin mining. Solo mining is possible with a GPU, but when not carrying an exceptionally powerful GPU, pool mining is usually the best course.

FPGA Edit

Stands for: Field-Programmable Gate Array

FPGAs are usually more powerful than GPUs, but not always. They usually produce from 100MH/s to 10GH/s, and are less commonly used than GPUs. Solo mining is usually easy with FPGAs.

ASIC Edit

Stands for: Application-Specific Integrated Circuit

ASICs are much more powerful than all other mining forms on this page, much more powerful, with a hashrate range from 1GH/s to 10 TH/s. Some types are more common than FPGAs, but ASICs are fairly rare. Solo mining is very easy with ASIC miners.
