Yes – there are more of these. Though don’t expect to become a millionaire from mining. Profitable in this case means to make a bit of money.
As you know it, Bitcoin is not profitable for average miners anymore.
The most mining-friendly cryptocoins in 2017–2018 are the following:
Litecoin, Monero, Ethereum Classic, Ethereum, Dash, Bitcoin Gold, Zcash, Steem, Namecoin, and Novacoin among others.
Ethereum is in the gray zone, as ETH mining profitability is decreasing now.
Dash would have been a great choice since mining remains accessible for everyone while its price showed a significant growth – in mid-November, Dash increased from around $350 to over $500, and then had a correction. The cryptocoins is getting more and more attention, and it has great potential in the future.
However, it seems that Dash is also entering that zone when mining is becoming accessible only for those who can buy ASIC equipment.
Litecoin is a favorite for many altcoin miners. It can still be mined with regular home PC. Cryptocompare shows that you would made over $20 per month with 50 hash power:
$20 is not that much, but everything in plus is still an achievement when it comes to mining. If you increase the hashing power and lower the electricity price, you can do a great job.
Ethereum and Ethereum Classic also show great return – with the same 50 MH/s hashing power, ETC provides over 650% profitability per day, which translates into around $80 per month. If you buy more GPU, you can make good profit from ETC mining.
Also, don’t forget there is Bitcoin Gold. This is new after-fork coin that appeared particularly because the Bitcoin community wanted something mining-friendly. They said Bitcoin market is monopolized and average persons cannot profit from it, which is true. Today, BTG can be mined with regular graphic cards. However, make sure to check BTG price. If it keeps above $100, then it’s good for you.
You can do some research on the best mining equipment for you.
