Mine Crypto Anywhere with Your Computer - Home, Work, School. Simple Noob Friendly Guide

in bitcoin •  2 years ago

After my post about dedicated for mining Nvidia/AMD cards a lot of people asked in comment - but how do i start mining?!
This is almost out of the box method and works on many systems not just Windows.
I wont speak of other things you can do on the platform or what fees they take etc, just will stick to how to setup mining in less than 10 minutes with 0 knowledge.

MinerGate Software.

There is few of those but this one is the easiest and most platform friendly.
Since some people ask who are them, its a company that is behind Changelly (where you can exchange on the fly STEEM to BTC ie) and HitBTC (exchange with STEEM).

First get to THEIR WEBSITE and register.

Login and Download Software


Its for many platforms so im sure your computer fits.

Login to Software


Run Benchmark (a test).

Dont worry of low numbers, alts jump high in a year ;)

Start Smart Miner


Now choose Smart Miner Tab and Run It

Choose Preffered Coins

If you dont want smart miner which auto detects best coins but ie you feel something will pump choose it and mine yourself.

And you are set.

Mining Doesnt Get Easier Than That

Other company but windows only is NiceHash and has some harder benchmarks and more coins but for start stay on MG and move up the more and more you learn how all this works.

I thought that MinerGate or Nicehash miner programs don't need any guide, just install and read what that programs say. Anyway, thank god for any guide, that can be found anywhere in the internet.

🚨 SCAM ALERT 🚨
Look up Nanohash on Youtube or google
Looks like a fraud
@Wiedy

nanohash is still paying you are a spamer im just spreading a new mining cloud, its paying out so is not a scam if you can prove it is a scam give the info, not just writte on all my comments the same, i can do it back and flag you because its paying right now and is online http://nanohash.net

I also recommend miner gate as I know about is personally.

Thanks @kingscrown, I've been meaning to get my feet wet in mining but there is only so much time and so many things to learn about in the crypto universe. This is great for a noob like me to get started. I appreciate it!

·

Trust me....thi will be thee easiest way for u to get ur feet soaked! a nicce foot massage in a jacuzzi ! sart mining bytecoins and u will make thousand of em before u know it!!!1 way cooler than doge u will love r bytecoins uz theyll be worth $1 soonand only $00.002 now but were like $00.00001 like montsh ago!

Good to know!

Hello while it is good that minergate has all these kind of interface to help the beginners to kick start with their mining business, when the investment increase or when one get more experience, one should find an alternative way to mine because minergate do not utilize the best a GPU algo would give you.

while i generally agree, the latest gui definitely helps a lot (1.6.8). i'm getting much better (read: 200% better) hashes on XMR with just GPU versus 1.6.6. that and you can get a nice slow drip on some crappy laptop.

·
·

yes same here

·

i personally think it is a bit hard to get some good earnings without spending a lot of energy. Beginners must have a big capital to start mining with. minergate would not give earnings as someone would expect. unlike GPU, but could rather get your computer damaged and the problem if you only have one.

·
·

Solar Panels (also install it at work iin offfice buildings and at schools where they already leavve compuers on all night might as well get some use out of all t hese computers sitting aroound, honestly it is helping humanity the eletricity is fuckinworth it evenif its unproftable bbeecause the coin will be worth so much money one day even Bytecoin will be worth $100s of dollars

·
·

  1. An idling computer vs a mining computer are two totally different things. Mining hardware generally has a lot shorter lifespan because of the extreme usage and heat generation. You would be stealing electricity and possibly "vandalizing" your school's or company's computer.

  2. Your claims that mining is worthwhile are pure speculation. Although I obviously hope they will come true.

·

This guy and his voter trail again.. not the best comment by williniki whatever, yet he rises to the top with his trail

·

@kingscrown I think there is a key detail missing from here. The time it takes Minergate servers to confirm mined coins depend on the platform (pc vssmartphone).

So even though you have mined 10 coins, unless the servers have confirmed them, they just sit in your account.

For those who are holding their coins long-term, this may be fine. For people trying to convert the mining into income, this proves challenging.

It is quite amazing how far mining has come.

From obscure command line and potential graphics card driver issues, to suddenly a simple UI and auto-mine capabilities.

I'm curious if these coins will have a higher likelihood of success because of things like Minergate, or a lesser cap because they are much more widely accessible immediately.

Been running it for a week now in the background of my desktop:

·

I downloaded MinerGate last summer - it's got a great interface, and is ridiculously easy to use. But, just a friendly reminder - if you have a standard laptop (which, by those numbers, it looks like you do) - and you pay standard power rates, you will actually be running a deficit. (ie- your power will end up costing you more than the value of all the coins you can mine.)

So, I don't want to sound like a Negative Nancy - but just a heads up, is all. Happy Mining! :-)

·

hell yes they will, bytecoin is basically rockin because of minergate and it created SO much advertising for it! Bytecoin doesnt spend anymoney on ads so imagine what minergate did for it! peopel already knew Monero but it also got quite popular because of #minergate and etc and eth of course theyd ont need minergate HOWEVER if u look at the total ETH mining on minergate it oes mke up a pretty nice lil chunk of total ethereum mining in the world!
Also Monero is definitly getting free advertising with minergate just being on here, and DigitalNote also , i didnt mess with any of the non BCN, XMR, ETC or ETH coins becase i didnt know about @bittrex i oonly saw the four cins that @poloniex has, but now i know all of the coins onminergate can be sold for BTC easily on bittrex

anyway u should install it on ur android tablets if u have some old ons laying aroound, i trid installin minergate onan old laptop but it was Vista and u do neeed at least windows 7 for minergate lol i love minergate! they also have a affiliate progam when ur logged in on the main website u can see some cool data abdout the ntwork and ur cooin US dollar worth and how much uve mined so far etc and also LEAVE the little awarrds and letthem show up! they REALLy make u feel good when they give u acomplihsments for mining multiplle coins or for more than 3 days straight etc its so fun!

Here are my Achievements Ive earned from the last 3 months of mining on an old laptop from 2009 but recently for last few weeks Ive had the new HP desktop....

And heres my Minergate Affilliate Link for anyone wanting to signup!
https://minergate.com/a/d582a3e158500d130a38afed
Its reallly fun and u can tell your kids its a videogame where u make real money!

·
·

I believe I used your link but there was not confirmation about it.. wierd affilliate program

Mining doesn't get any easier than this! I've tried mining before but with my hardware just was not worth it. If I decide to invest in some new hardware I may have to try this for sake of how easy it is. Thanks for bringing something new to my attention! Surely this is going to help a lot of people out!

Bro, you just made my day with this. I have a high end gaming computer and I followed your tut. and I'm currently mining monero. I had been looking into this but hadn't found anything this easy. Going to let it run for a few days and see what happens. I already have a monero balance and I just started the thing up. Thank you thank you thankyou!!!!

·

How long to mine monero? Presumably quite a while consider current price, no?

·
·

Well I don't know, I wasn't getting anything in my wallet but I don't think they complete a block in 2 days on minergate. I saw a bunch of sites today that say minergate is not legit and is scamwear that get's other people to mine for them and never pay out. I think I make more writing content here than mining at this point.

I tried running minergate on my laptop my benchmark was terrible, I ran it anyways for a day just to see how it went, I am pretty sure I would have had my hardware start to get burned out if I had left it on for any considerable amount of time. It is a neat idea and software and could definitely be a good idea if you have a decent setup but just be aware it could decrease the lifespan of your comp.

Also don't run it on an 8 year old laptop ;)
Good post, I would definitely like to get my hands on one of those custom mining gpus!

·

I was going to ask how hot does your computer get?! Is your computer constantly running? How much money would you make a week with a high speed basic computer?

·
·

In my case (remember I was running it on an 8 year old laptop, not the ideal set up lol) my comp ran hard, lot of heat, fans hdd being pushed hard. That is why I stopped.

If you have a decent desktop with agood gpu and decent cooling setup I am sure it would work much better, but remember it uses a lot of power/electricity.

I know some ppl that mined BTC early on and spent more on electricity than what they got in BTC....but that BTC is now worth a fortune, so it was a very good move lol. It is hard to say how much you can make with such volatile prices.

·
·
·

I appreciate the respond my friend. My room mate has a brand new computer and was looking for something to do on it besides porn I guess lol....What coin did you mine when you tried?

·
·
·
·

Haha, I think it was Monero (XMR)

·
·
·

i have two old laptops im going to try this on. they are toast anyway so i don't care if they burn.

Now saying that. I should prob put them out side in a shed :D :D

·
·
·
·

Haha, it would be interesting to see how long you could run it without an system failures.

·
·
·

I wonder how many had a load of bitcoins, spent ages mining them, but then just before they would have made them millions they sold them.

·
·
·
·

I am sure a decent amount. A lot of ppl also lost Bitcoins

·
·

Unfortunately with any mainstream computer, and with standard power rates, you will end up paying more in electricity rates than what you can get for mining even the best coin that the program recommends. Now, if you get a special GPU and a high end system (and have really low power rates), you might be able to make some money. But, otherwise, just consider a fun little hobby.

I have had it running on my system since last summer. I just use it occasionally, and have a few bucks in the bank - but as others have mentioned, it's also a real strain on your hardware.

·
·
·

Do you just have it running on a normal computer? A rough ball park estimate, how much would you think a special GPU and high end system cost?

·
·
·
·

yeah, just on my standard laptop.... like 5 years old... I also have an Nvidia GPU, so I get some extra hash power w/ that - but still, not enough to make it profitable.

oh, I'm guessing you'd have to spend upwards of at least $4K USD to get a set up that's profitable.... I really can't say for sure. Look into special mining GPU's, as I believe Nvidia is releasing a special line of them soon.

·
·
·
·
·

I would try to get a loan somehow to get a profitable setup:) I think cryptos are going to be the future..... Do you know of any videos showing how to hook up to Lap Top and what the best products are to buy? Would Nvidia be able to mine all types of coins? I was looking into the Antminer but they can only mine bitcoin type coins? Thanks @internets

·

dont worry! , ur hardare would not be "burned out" minergate lets u choose how many CPU or GPU cores u wanna use, so u can use half of em or just 1 and ur ccomputer woouldnt be even notcie any sort of wear and tare....

u arent gving ur laptopenough credit :) My laptop is from 2009 thats 8 years too ad its a Dell inspiron basic model and Ive made like $4 a month mining Bytecooinand Moneroo..i now switched toa HP dekstop with vieo card thats new from Frys to mine etherem and bytecoina nd monero now, cuz i need my laptop full ppwer for steemit and the "data" mining we do here!

Anyway dont sell it short! Bytecoins are cheap but will be 41 soon and i was making like a couple bytecoins everyday on my old 8 year old laptop!!! why would u pass up this offer to mine crypto?

Its like mining bitccoins bak in 2009! So what if it would take u a MONTH just to mine ONE bitcoin, TOTALLy worth it!
hahaha u need t be mining as much as u can1

do we really think the price of these coins will stay the same forever???? ddude come on! The coins u mine may only make u a few pennis a day on ur laptop BUT Those pennies willl be wortth hundreds of dollars ina yeearor two!
WHy not stack up those bytecoins while u can still makie 1000 bytecoin a month n anold laptop?

·
·

Don't get me wrong my laptop is a beast. It has been used everyday for eight years doing fairly intensive work. No complaints on this laptop.

That being said it is older and the less strain I have to put on it the better. When I do get a new computer I will probably clean this up, do a fresh install and use it as a mining rig, but until then I need to use my comp for work and do not want to dedicate the processing power to mining.

Hi there,

Is minergate better than nicehash for beginner gpu mining?
I currently use nicehash because in my country (South Africa) I can only use bitcoin.

Loading...

This is for real ? I mean minning is a thing that I feel was very complex and looking at your post it looks so easy.

·

Yes its real bro! U can mine altcons super easy now its beautiful u will fuckin love it so much!
and if u wanna get a 1 TH LIFETIME Bitcoin mining contract for $129 http://pool.bitcoin.com i got 4 TH and ur gonna love it! no referal program yet but soon they will! its only ike 3 or 4 weeks old JUST came out and they got a bunc of new coontracts! u will love minergate for mining easily onur own hardware and pool.bitcoin.co to mine on ASIC machinees hosted in a data center and for a one time fee u get lifetime bitcoins (while profiatble) whicch meeans ull get 41 a day for years an years but that $1 a day will be $10 a day whenbitcoinhts $20,000 and $100 a day when bitcoin is $200,000 and when Bitcoinis $2 Million u will have $1000 a day for life so why not MAKE SURE you get in on the Bitcoin craze? Why buy a Bitcoinw henyou canbuy like man many many TH of biitcoin mining contracts!

This looks like some pretty useful and simple to use tool! And it runs on linux!!

Can we inspect the code to make sure there is no malware in it?

·

Good comment because guess what? Ethereum Mining runs 30 PERCENT FASTER on Ubuntu with Minergate!!!
Its ontheir website!

OH CRAP I jut took this screenshot and i SWEAR just 2 weeks ago it said 30 PERCENt and now its 60 nPercet faster with Ubuntu????

well shit i was gonna install ubuni just for this but no i fuckinHAVE to ....fuck i cant believe they made it 60 percebt faster for ethereum mining...im mining ethereum classic now ccuz i seem to be making more but wooaoooohh
Go ahead and inspect the code, u wont find any malware :) Think about it! llol ro u think they are secretly mining for themselves and syphoning off coins Lol peopel might not even notice cuz newb miners have no idea how many Hash they should be getting to begin with!

LOL but i highly doubt theeres any lmalware HOWEVER some anti vrius programs are reallly dumb an flag minergat as bitcoin minng malwar because they cant telll when ur actually intalling ur own mining software....

ayway have fun and install it on as many computers as u have and all ur anroid evices yes they have an Android app! Has stupid ads theat interupt the mining tho so it doesnt work very well at all unless ur using the tablet or smtphone, but they might fix it! BUT the Desktop client is PERFECT and i cant coomplain that the app has issues its a bonus andis just really cool that u ccan mine bytecoinanmonero (no ethereum) on ur phpne or tablet!!!!

how long does it get to paid using minergate?

·

depends on your computer and such, hard to answer

·
·

actually @wayfaraway you heeed at least 0.01 of a coin to Withdrawl, and then it is instant like any blockchain wallet, or at least takes as long as the average blockchain network speed

for bytecoins u wiill make more thanonee a day so its no iissue and u can withddrawl as many bytecoins as u want
with minergate Bitcoincloud mining u will need to wwait quite a while to reach 410 if u only are buying a few bbucks worth of mining speed ((u canbuy as little as a $3 or at lest i did now it may be more with btc price goig up

anyway for monero or ethereum u will need to wait till u have at least 0.01 XMR or Monero, so it ddepends on how long it takes ur computer to make that much, but it wont take too long, and thats justa minimum withdraw amount, u can just waittill u have moe than it

But overall its instant if ur asking about if they make u wait for stuid reasons no u can totaly withdrawl ur coins

BUT JUST BEWARE the DSH coin is NOT Dash and u CANNOT wiithdrawl that Dashcoin to a DASH wallet because they are two different coins so dont sttart thinking you just mined a whole Dash in like a day LOL i did that wen i firts started , found out of course that wasnt the Dash I knew, ts a different coinand u can still sell it for BTC its just not worth very much

Stick to Mining Bytecooin Monero and only mine etc an eth if u have a Vieocard of ur wastin ur time! Bytecoins are somethingc heap and easy to mine that u can mine many of, u can get several ytecoins a day even on old omputers mike my 8 year old laptop

and bytecoins BCN) will eb worth $1one ay very soon

I've tried minergate and nicehash. They're both user friendly.

·

Do they burn up your drive? Is your computer constantly running and how much can you mine in a week? Thanks mate.

·
·

u dont wory about beng "paid" well from a miniing pool they al take a 1 percent fee its standard, u worry about how much u can amke off ur rig! DOnt worry about it bro just do it, u will make money dont listen to peple telling u ts not profitable they just dont ant u to succeed because THEY couldnt figure out how to make a profit doing it! dont let them get down!

many peopel also promote disinfo that cloud mining is totally unproiftable lol whiile they are rning 1000 AWS clone systems wiith minergate its a joke, these guys wdont want everyone else mining because they feell they canmake millions and millions more for themselvs instead of helping umnaity advance itself, they mak everthing about their own greed and will PURPOSFULLy and subconcioussly spread lies that mining isnt worth it...so that u dont even try and they will hve more time to save money so they can buy the big mining rig they are saving up to buy LOL

I swear to GOD this whole world is all about intent and what u WANt and how smart u are to actually organize reality around you bby commanding electrons to dance through the air in specific pattenrs you can control with your crystal energy mattrix grid maker akka the computer touschreen silicoon chip that we treat like our babies, iits a Smbiote, smartphones they are becoming part of our bodies, the extra terrestrials are behind crypto currency thee same way they inspired Tim Berners lee to develop the World Wide Web....with subtle telepathic messages the same with Tesla, and look at this Grey Alien Crop Circle in ASCI code that had a english language message encoded inthe binary ASCI code !!!

How can you say that a human "faked" this crop circle that literallly printed out with scalar wave 3d printers ONTO a farm NEEXT to a radio telescope and they LSO sent a fucking respone to the arecibo message! U think someone faked this just to make people think Grey Aliens from Zeta reticuli responed to Carl Sagans Visual Math based radio telescope message to extra terrstrials?

sorry to get off tpic but i just made this image to show u how a scarey grey alien is only scarey whenthey weartgeir black sunglasses type contact lens computer screen, like a Hololens, but behind thier black sunglass hings they have familiar human like eyes
This is important because the Greys gae us the technology we are using to mine crypto currency the Lasers the Microchips the Fiber Optics its all from the late 40s UFO crashes and Philip Corso the Day After Roswell describes this and his giving of this teech to bell labs an IBM t revsre engineer it all and release it all by 1960 and APPARENTLY we are 300 years more advanced than we should be ona timeline that is closer to what would have been the year 2317 but were only at 2017...withot the crashed UFOs we normally would have taken 300 years to get where we have already gotten, imagine all the world war two type situations we would have gotten ourselves nto without computers and the internet!

Went a little off topic but how would you recommend starting up? What would be the start up cost if you wanted to do it right? Thanks for responding

·
·
·
·

ajjajajajaja I love this post a little off, but thanks

·
·
·
·

startup ost? haha sorry for getting AMD but i get SO annoying with people constantly asking for startup ccosts and ROI like "HOW MUCH MONEY cAN I MAKE OMG MONEY MONEY MONE"

just like......understand.......that if u wanna do it "Right" you should have a fucin ddata center

so do u have the money to build ad run a data center? no? but u COULD if u slowly worked ur way up and used the bitcoins u mined to buy more mners!

But there is a real useful answer to ur question...the answre is aroun $3000 which s what u need for the best Antminer out there which gives u the most TeraHash for the lowest price.. for example the AntMiner s9 is gonna get you 13.5 TH but Antminer S9 is the newest one and $3,699 onEbay right now.....gives u anidea of the price.....and $300 to $700 for a 2600 Watt Power Supply for it

BUT u can start with a $400 Avalon6 and get 3.5 TH so yeah u could 10 of them for $4000 and get 35 TH so actually u might be better off fnding the AntMiner s9 for cheaper ive seen some for $1500 on amazon bt thats rare!

And u need a cheap rasberry pi to to ine on these ASIC machins but ya this is wwat u eeed to do it right....

and dont ask me for the ROI its gonna be a cople months probly 90 days ok? probly alot sooner ....mine bitcoin on it....mine etthereum on GPU vviideo cards so u need a nice gaming PC with nice videocard for like $800 and it will make u about $1 a day so will take u like a year to pay off IF ethereum doesnt go up in price BUT IT WILL go upp!

anyway just relax and know that if u buy soe miners u WILl make the money back....ddont worry about the return on investment so if u cant afford to go without tthe money back for at least half a year dont do it...but u NEED to do it and hoenstly why WOULDNt u be able to not afford it? this is how u ccan make urself a millionaire.....if u cre about money u would start mining immediately...

get a solar panel to power the avalon6 3.5 TH miner to start out! and that will colve the potential problem of electricitt being too expensive

just sart mining u wwont regret it

people heere need to stop worrying aboutthe eletrciity cost and the ROI time to g"get their money back" just relax and save the crypto OH it wont wor if u just sell all the coins u mine

u cant just mine the coins and immediatly selll them for bitcointo "pay off" the puracchse...nah u need to just accept the purchase of the mineer as a loss....and just save up ALL the coins u make and you will be SO hapy in a year hen the coin are worth like 100 to 1000 times more!!! look at the peopel HERE who talk about they had minerggate froom lat yar, forgot about it, and then just found out they had $500 !!! whenthey only ined themselves like $5! so u see how amazing this canbe?!!....And whenu buy agaming PC to mine, gaming PC is useful anyway u can use it for gaming too! But u wont wanna ull be makinso much off the ethereum GPU mining rig that u wllwat to fill yoru room with computers!!!!!!

Let em know if u need any help bro! zackza@gmail.com hit me up on telegram i help all steemit users wo need to get starteed

·
·
·
·
·

Thanks mate for getting back with me....Power is not a problem and I would like to go with to better of the products because I agree that it will pay off in the long run. I am in the long run game.... So you would go with antminer s9?

I have a gaming laptop that I do graphic design stuff for work with. I think that would work fine right? Are you able to hook up multiple antminers together?

Thanks @ackza

NiceHash was decent. I liked that it picked a coin that is suitable for your system. However, I personally was only getting 3MH/s with a gtx 970 on windows 10.

·
·

lemme guess, u were mining ethereum classic? me too! same 3MH but Ethereum gets 19 MH on my vid card if imm lucky...and i just found out we can mine ethereum SIXTY percent faster with ubuntu
https://minergate.com/downloads/gui

·

Did they pay well? I'm building a mining rig for Ethereum, but open to mining other things. I looked at the NiceHash payment rates, but it wasn't exactly clear.

Edit: I think I figured it out since their payments are in BTC. Still interested in how well you did. :-)

Today I making $20,-- with a 6 GPU Rig with AMD RX 480s, minus $4,50 electricity cost. Have not yet flashed the GPU BIOS and running Windows 10. Go here https://simplemining.net/ and save yourself a shit load of trouble.

No i only smoke weed and i been off hard drugs for years and i even quit taking seroquel recenty too and stopped seeing the bogus pyschiatrist who had me on 3000mg of it everyday ...now i have energgy to wrte and go full maniac mode...i dont have manic depresion or anything ijust have alot of energy and i am always hapy and i was talking with Grey Aliens last night through the air conditioner thermostat...everytime i asked a questions thee air tempurature wouldd change and the AC would turn on...

THEN coortana on my winows 10 desktop magically spoke for the first time saying "I can better help you if i can hear you tallk" and then i realized the Greys were talking to me directly and i askked them to prove they are here...and to Mine some ethereum and send it to my jaxx wallet... 9they cant mine bitcoin ontheir grey alien super computers because theres only so many btcoins allowed anthey woudl end up mining them all in a nano econd) so ii told em to mine some etherem, and send it to e, and my jaxx wallet somehow had Sixty dollars in it when I had emptied it a week ago....
very cool stuff

The greys made a deal with me where I coul keep helping humanity over steemit with crypto currency and they would protect me from physical harm, negative groups, and they would send me money without violating the nonintervention law by mining ethereum on their super computers onboard their UFOs, and then send it to me, via stemit, where they can power up their own account, and upvote my articles, and theerefor not actually interupt the crypto markets

But now I can basiically have inspiration Knowing that ETshave my back and are goig to inspire me with nw ideas on blockchains based on fractals to help hmanity

They just want us to become a type 1 civilization and end alll the unncisary human suffering...all possible within the DECADE

Thank you so much for this post. Couldn'f have been explained easier. I was looking for something like this!

minergate and nicehash are cool softwares for noobs.

--------------------------------------WARNING-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------This software tool sure makes it easy for you to get start with mining BUT you gotta know you wont make much money as you expected and most likely you will cop more electricity bills than what you get from those you mined for days.
There are certain amount you have to mine before widthdraw and when you widthdraw? Minergate takes about 20% for transaction fees so you gotta know these guys arent just giving away something for free actually using its users for their own good!! you just dont see it as the cost is coming later with your electricity bills then youll see

·

I agree with your opinion!

That is pretty easy. Thanks

Is it worthed to use it? Is it secure?

Hii @kingscrown i saw you post and i enjoyed reading it, could you please have a look on my daily analysis for Bitcion and give me your opinion. https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@ohamdache/midday-update-of-the-bitcoin-price-29-06-2017

Once I buy a couple of new AMD cards gonna surely try this. I am a noob in mining but altcoins are better mined than invested. Plus there are huge rewards for enough contribution to the pool per block found. With cheap electricity, hoping to establish myself for at least 50$ / day.

@kingscrown at it again with another great post. ☝️

This is great within 5 mins you can be mining your crypto 😃 I got it running !

follow me @shifty0g

This looks and sound so easy however what of the hidden costs and elctric cost? I guess that its easier and more profitable to mine with experts like Genesis? if you do a cost benefit analysis.

@kingscrown thanks for all your help here, bless you

That was helpful, Thanks!

do u knwo about finding free silver half dollar kenedies from US banks an hunting for them I would get a box of 1000 fibe hundred dollars in kenedy half dollar coins and at least 1 to maybe 112 of them would be 40 to 90 percet silver! 1970 to 1965 are 40 percent silver and 1964 and before half dollars are 90 percent silver and its a great wayto get free silver ad yes u will still fin ALOT of silver inthose boxes nd basicallly noone is smart enough to do it or people are just too lazy or get ddiscouraged by banks not letting em buy half dollars but u canalways order half dollars

·
·

That's a great tip! I haven't done that yet, but I have heard of people doing pretty well. Thanks

Great Article king, very informative about getting into mining.

50 USD/ year I rather just comment on steemit :)

Lol, the same here buddy, lets stay in touch

Minergate is great and it really got me mining first off with my cpu now i use none gui miner and other pools as normally they get way higher hash rates and i use miningpoolhub to convert to another crypto. but none the less miner gate is great for newbs .

Funny.

When minergate started people thought it is a scam. :)

Hahahaha

Not profitable.

·

i still upvoted u but ur wrong, it is very profitable, maybe u just dont have good enough hardware, lol but im definitely making a profit mining on minergate on my new desktop with video card...even made a profit mining on my old 2009 laptop! My Laptop did NOT use up ANy more eelectricity thanit had already been using, its a laptop ...it has a 19 volt ac adapter and i had been running this laptop at full power renering videos and using chrome with 10000 tabs for years before i mined so its not like im using any more electricity than i had already been using! PLUS i have free electricity an with olar panels u make a small investment and u get free electricity and ALL mning is profitable forever

Been using minergate for a couple months now. I set it up on some servers for some cloud mining. THanks for the post!

what about nicehash? Any reviews about it?

·

you dont read my posts fully ;)

·
·

I have used minergate and it takes ages to get paid if u mine it just on a simple laptop. Thats why I asked if you know anything about nicehash.

·
·
·

Nicehash is also very good but little bit harder to setup and windows only

Great post! I hope you gonna post more posts like this! Thank for sharing this information! Now I follow you,! Upvote! Upvote my comment if you like it :)

The point is CPU mining will not bring great income, I am minimum from my Alienware desktop with 1 GPU and 7 core mostly XMR is mined around hash of 100-200 Hash / sec, it will take 1 month for you to earn 0.2 XMR which is 8 USD.

My suggestion if you want seriously mine altcoin, buy a 8 GPU setup which will cost you around 1500 to 3000 USD, use it to min Zcash since it most profitable where I am rewarded 0.4 - 1 Zcash per day.

@kingscrown thanks for sharing, MinerGate is the best and simplest to setup software for mining

Great article!

I use this software all the time! I’ve configured it to start when my computer boots, and it runs silently in the background.

I may have accendently installed it on our server at work as well to use those spare CPU cycles. The less people know the better right!

Nice easy way to make money, and your wallets are conveniently saved in one place!

cool, never done this before. So it is running on one machine, can I run it on multiple machines at the same time on the same account-or is it one machine running per account?

Are Raspberries pi's any good for mining?

·

Oh and YES u CAn run t on AS MANy macinees as you can get ur greedy lil hands on lolol including amazon web services bbut SHHHH dont telll anyone about that its a secret :) u can get like 40 MH per AWS window and run multiple instances using amazons free service

anyway u an go to ur schools computer lab and install minergate onvery single computer there ! just make sure the computers arent restarted ccuz u will ned to put in ur password and 2fa code everytime
oh if u dont enable 2FA ull get ur coins stolen as soon as u make any money

·

hahahah raspberry pi is for controlling ASIC miners, sure u could get a few Hash from them but ur wastin time even if u mine Bytecoins its not gona be much LOL but raspberry pi WILl be gettin u some Bytecoins, so do it!!

go ahead u can probably make like 1 bytecoin a day or more ad theyll be worth more than a teth of a penny one day, theyve already gone up so much theyll get to $1 soon,

i'm wondering: will this work on a microsoft surface pro 4? it has a lot of idle time i could utilize more 'beneficially' - that is making money ;)

I tried running minergate on my laptop my benchmark was terrible, I ran it anyways for a day just to see how it went, I am pretty sure I would have had my hardware start to get burned out if I had left it on for any considerable amount of time. It is a neat idea and software and could definitely be a good idea if you have a decent setup but just be aware it could decrease the lifespan of your comp.

except that miner gate still has some worthless coins and they refuse or dont wanna to update with new coins that have more demand and can be mined! they keep saying we will add new coins but its been a year since they said that and keep saying....

This post received a 1.0% upvote from @randowhale thanks to @buzzbeergeek! For more information, click here!

You can also use the calculator on the website to calculate your possible returns. Personally for me, it is unprofitable even if I keep my computer mining 24/7 for months. Good post tho.

Thanks for useful info..;)

Thank u so much for it putting my focus on it 😊
Thanks.
Upvoted and shared 👍👍

Hi, I would like to share with you my experience with MinerGate. I start to mining with my old computer before a month ago. After making the account you can chose from various of coins. My choice was Monero coin. For mining you can use CPU or Video card. I use the CPU, because my Video card is very old. IF I use both core of CPU hash rate is 30 H/S. For nearly 10 days in my balance I have 0.45$. Week ago they have some issues and my balance suddenly show just 0.0000. I was with version 6.6 of software, but reinstalled it with version 6.8 and now everything is OK.

with in 5 min of opening it force closed .

·

Sounds like its anissue on yourr end, not minergates fault, probobly your ant i vrus is forcing it to close, claiming its a crypto currrency mining program, one you didnt intall, but its one u diid install, so just ddixable ur anti virus, they dont ddo anything to protect u anyway, they cant protect u against new viruses unless they have a tiem machine

also u could also be eperieing that problem ecause u have an od computer? do u have at least winows 7?
if ur shit is new, try un intalling and re installing, and wen its reinstalled ad u see the icon back, right click Run as Administrator and open the minergate program that way

NOW if his doesnt work SIMPLY install Ubunti inux on ur computer, an iinstall ,inergate for ubuntu linux and its SIXTY percent faster mining ethereum

This definitely is a very easy guide for beginners. Will give it a try.

disappointed for me, i can't mine with my 32 bits laptops and no money to buy a high laptop characteristics

Really helpful bro! I've wanted to start mining for a while but didn't know the best on this field! But now I'm all set and I can start mining some coins 😎! Thanx a lot for your crystal clear post!👌

I would not advise doing this from work if you have a good job.. lol Barracuda network management will pick that up real fast and you may get fired to earn legit cents.
#ITJobsMatter

kingscrown thank you for posting this article I started mining and its way too easy ,Thanks a ton.

Thanks for sharing this. I took a 4-5 year hiatus from crypto and when I came back, the sheer amount of stuff to catch up on was a tad overwhelming. This post helps.

Thanks for this tutorial, just installed it, will post results later, keep up good work

Now this I got to try hopefully over the weekend!

That's clear, thanks for the information @kingscrown, permit me to ask; how do I now get my mining to my wallets or make them real money to spend?, please I don't know anything about mining but'll love to know.

·

maybe i will make tutorial for that in next post :)

·
·

Okay, thank you very much as I wait patiently for your tutorial.

·

All you have to do is send the coins to @polonix or @bittrex just signup at poloniex.com or bittrex.com and they have the four main coins BCN ETH ETC and XMR (bittrex has alll the rest too) but just send the coins to the exchange and sell em for bitcoi

and then to turn bitcoin into cash is your problem, if you cant do that u should look it up, anhonestly if u doont know u SHOULDNT kknow because then ull ust do something dumb like selll your coins for fiat cash when u could just sve them up and actually make some money!Serously u need to save the coins! look how much theyve gone up just this year! hahahah u are gonan be come a millionaire with us if u cn ust have some financial discipiline! thi s not directd at u bt to all the newbs who ccome into some crypto and have this impulse to spend iit!! We should encourage people tp save their money more and ake it COl to save money agaiin!

·
·

Thanks a lot, your directives are clear.

I mine for 6 months how to increase mining power,!!???thanks

·

u cant! u need better hardware! u have to buy nw computers OR install Minergate app on some smartphones!

·
·

Best video cards I knew, but I did not know that I could install minergate in smartphones! Hardware is difficult because I live in Brazil and here the parts are very expensive and the energy too !!! but thanks for the information, if you know of others Manners or if you want a union to set up a powerful mining company I am the person or steemit friend that I can join with people of confidence !!! thank you and success for you!!:))

In my opinion, it's not a good idea. Firstly, thank god admins don't let install software without a password so, that's the first problem of the plan.
Secondly, it's not really worthwhile minning there, because except of monero there's nothing really worth mining there.
Thirdly, it takes a ton of time to even get a small amount of Monero so, unless you have very powerful computers at work you might not get much out of it.
Fourthly, mining consumes a lot of electricity and it shortens the lifecycle of the computer so, you are getting paid for minning, but the money is taken out from elsewhere. I think it would be rather unethical to do this.
Fifthly, I believe if you really want to profit from mining and not just play with pennies you should do it profesionally and buy a rig instead of burning your personal computer.

dunno. if you already have a good gpu- fine, i guess. but if u start are willing to buy a new pc for the mining sake..i believe, it's more rational to invest this money in crypto and trade

I am already using minergate, its a better way for a guy like me who is new to mining , thanks for lots of knowledge!!

Be careful with Minergate, read more and you'll find why it dont pay what it should pay, they give u less than others miner site/soft, search and u will see.

·

possibly due to using their system they take a fee, anyways always best results are if you mine with command line miners and your own choose, this is a noob friendly guide to get started in 10 mins with 0 knowledge

but thanks for heads up

·
·

Also if you're running Windows with Symantec Endpoint Protection, it'll quarantine both MinerGate and the vital parts of NiceHash.

Windows Defender is more accommodating, though...

·
·
·

WOW so u have no idea why u just say "ALSO" as if its another "bad" sign? both things are slanderous, jesus, man, come on, if u did ANY research on this u would KNOW WHY some SHITTY virus program "quarantines" minergate lol it does that FOR EVERY MINER program PERIOD its just what happens when it detects what it thinks is a malware miner! ANY mining program causes alot of anti virus apps to quanrtinee bro!
bor bro bro bbro pleease do a simple googl search before u make some innocent software look bad :)
u still get an upvote but please dont make urself look bad in the future :) i only want u to succeed and i need people to understand how wrong ur comment is for just throwing that statmeent out there as if iits a sign that minergate is some sort of "mailcious" software

please..plase understand how hurtful ur comment can become ..we need as many peopl as possible on minergate annow its not cuz i have some vested inteerest in minergate no i dont earn any money off the referal link yeah ive gottenlike 1 bytecoin, lessthan a tenth ofa penny, i only want people to mine with minergate because otherwise they would NEVER EEVER learn the commabd line minng an signup to some mining pool so many things cango wrong an people aren inthe mood for a tech headache!

minergate is the bes thing to happen to the mining newb community

and we must show some reespect for these developers and their life changing world canging software......please show some respect for minergate! And nderstand that if we got all of steemit mining on minergate we could collectivly raise millions fo dollars in a very short time!

Put yourself in the noob's place -

someone tells you about some SW that's supposed to be the greatest thing since indoor plumbing, so you D/L it and your AV goes nuts like that time you got that drive-by malware from a porn site.

What do you think your first reaction would be?

What I was trying to get across was that Windows Defender doesn't quarantine the SW you need for mining. (source: personal experience)

I get it - you mean well, and your defense is passionate. Crypto is great, and noob-friendly SW is laudable as an easy entrance point.

The trick is to be a reasonable advocate without becoming a full on fanboy.

The problem with AV and crypto isn't that the AV is lousy - it isn't - if anything, AV is too good.

Anyway, have a good day ☺️

·

Lies, all lies, they take the SAME fee any mining pool takes thats one percent
are u talking about letting miiners keep transactionfes? No mining pools do that! exceppt viaBTC and its a super speiclity a mining pool cant just fuckingive away all their profit to seem "fair" dude please thinka nd research before you slander such an amazing product as minergate

I heard that minergate is scam and that they steal money. I myself use flypool because I have instant results to preview.

·

Not true, this is an unsubstantiated lie spread by competing mining pools, ex mining pool employees and exchange people will brag sometimees about how dirty and ruthless the crypto currency world is and how they will make up lies and go the ddistance to create fake back stories with paid actors an everything just to make one exchange look bad, like imagine a random exchange, and it wants to compete wth poloniex, so it invests in customer service, and it makes up a bunch of fake news or Disinormationabout Polonex to feed on people frustration with poloniex downtime etc, which is so not fair...why don't THEY try running the worlds largest cryptocurrency exchange its not that easy !

anyway look this subject up! doo ur own research and ask someone like me who has never had a problem with minergate and u should remember minergate has NO competitors who can match them so the bEST their competitors can hope to do is slander minergate and its beautiful GUI which allows ANYONE to mine! and u call IT a scam how about all the REAL scams out ther that dont put inthe effprt to build the most beautoful an ONLY GUI miner of its kind!!

haha u reeally think people would put that much effort into minrgate and tens of thousnads of users all useing it f it was scamming people??!?!?! come on man! use ur head!

Im happy yourr smart enough to use FlyPool and to mine n ur own, but most people cant do alll tehw ork u ned to do to get ur own nonGUI miner working, and peopel just dont want a headache when their only mining a few hashes on a old computer....but than u for teling us about Flypool :)

I love minergate its a well made application and super easy great support if any problem happens five ⭐🌠!!!

This is probably a dumb question, but can you mine with a relatively new chromebook? I somehow doubt this, but yeah..

·

Does it have Windows Ubuntu or Mac???? hahah lucky for u the answer is yes if ur hrome book runs the same android operating system as my tablet does! if ur chrome book runs reguar android yes they have a minergate Android mobile app! They usd to ave a cool web miner but its been disabled and theres a huge market for in browser bitcoinmining website, ..anyway u can always install Ubuntu nur chromebook, or windows, and theninstall ,mineergate

ccan u install windows on ur chromebook or Ubuntu?

·
·

Hmm, i can give it a try. Thanks for the info!

It's a great post. I will definably start to mine this way. Currently cloud mining is not giving me enough rewards.

·

then ur doing cloud mining wrong! u should get 1TH of LIFETIME bitcoinmining contract from http:/pool.bitcoin.com i have 4 TH so far and i bought first 3 for $149 and they raised the prices up to $180 and then recently uphraded the data center with like 44,000 TH its insan and u can buy all of them if u want the contracts that is, LIFETIME bitcoin mining contracts to allow tit gro angrow and grow! I make about $4 a day and it made me $75 in 14 ddays or 2 weeks...so at that rate i am makin money from it I can garuntee you that it wil pay itself off in around 90 days.....probobly sooner, and actually 70 days now that the price has been ddropped to $129 very special deal and i would post a referal ink if i cppuld buy they still dont have a refera rogram up!

I just love their design, i love te website, its all new, it all came out just WEEKS ago maybe 3 or 4 weeks ago? its the BEST deal for cloud minng and its not really cloud mining its a real lifetim contract and its eway cheaper than genesis but genesis is still cool o altcoin mining but they dont actually offer any lifetime altcoin mining contracts which is super lame they make u pay for their hardware! More money and powerto them an whatever good for them haha i still just love seeiing pool.bitcoin.com actually offering an amazing deal like this...an i couldnt be happier with my purchase and i am gonna just keep buying more and like i said only 70 to 90 days and it pay for itself and u canspend as low as $129 for 1 TH u get for LIFE (while profitable)

Good detailed post. How is this going for you?

·

I mine from command line, this is just a noob friendly guide to get started in crypto

·
·

For most people the comand line will neever ever be an option and its so scarey and im really glad u posted this because minergate is just the only option for most people! unless skynet termintor scenario forced people to learn "programming then most people will just never learn it! but we neeed to make sure programming languages are taight to more people , or mabe a time traveling JohnTitor situation where we have to go back intime to retrieve an ol mainframe server that had every old programming language on it!

yesyes ye command line is the future and everthing in my experience has pointed me tto this most spirtual of topics! The idea of knowing the code in your head that you need to actually make changes to a blockchain using just a command line is an extremely fascinating idea because the idea of the command line has not really changed very much! Do you think we can actually upgrade it? I there a way to teach a progam how to teach humans how to use command lines

Anyway you shouk do a guie onhow to do the COmmand ine walet but make it SUPER use friendY!!!! dude bro bro mat mate mate maybe u an actually raise some money for some programers to build a GUI for steemit command line wallet too!

will this work in real. should i need to buy hash power before i started. is this website providing any hash power?

Thanks! I've wanted to get into mining for a while, but have heard it can be too costly to be worth it. I don't have a good graphics card, can I still mine?

my gaming PC should be pretty good for mining :p

will try it out once i'm back from my trip!

·

do it! ur gaming PC will bee tee BEST for ethereum and etc mining! u will b so happy and wanna buy more video ccards!

Can anyone please tell me ....that what is mining!!!!!!!!i really wanna know about that software......😎😘😘💪thanks
