Feasibility of mining crypto on RockPro64?
#1
Is there any seemingly straightforward way to mine any form of crypto on the RockPro64? I have one laying around doing nothing so I figure if I can at least get it making a few pennies a day I might be able to recoup my costs of purchasing the thing. 

Would a USB ASIC miner work on this? Or would it be possible to plug in a GPU into the PCI slot to mine off that?

v0.10 beta for ARMv8-A (ARM64) : Monero (reddit.com) had results on a Pine64 but is it compatible with the RockPro64? How would I install it?

Not very feasible. I'm mining wow and only getting about 250 h/s. So far it comes to about 5 cents a day. You can get an app called xmrigcc.
It works best with Ubuntu (armbian focal). If you would like to try, follow the steps below:

1) apt-get install wget proot automake autoconf pkg-config libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev libssl-dev libhwloc-dev hwloc libgmp-dev zlib1g-dev make g++ git build-essential cmake libuv1-dev libmicrohttpd-dev gcc-7 g++-7 curl nano clang libuv1-dev -y 2) git clone https://github.com/Bendr0id/xmrigCC.git 3) chown -R $USER:$USER xmrigCC 4) cd xmrigCC 5) cmake . -DCMAKE_C_COMPILER=gcc-7 -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=g++-7 6) make 7) cp src/config.json . 8) nano config.json 9) sudo sysctl -w vm.nr_hugepages=1280 10) ./xmrigDaemon 11) enjoy

Maybe we can figure out a way to push the limits on these devices.
