in bitcoin •  8 months ago 

People on discord as often how to mine something or how to use their computers to get soem extra cash. This is almost out of the box method and works on many systems not just Windows.
I won't speak of other things you can do on the platform or what fees they take etc, just will stick to how to set up mining in less than 10 minutes with 0 knowledge.

Minergate Software


This one is the easiest and most platform friendly. If this post will get enough traction (ie comments) i will explain others too.
Since some people ask who are them, its a company that is behind Changelly.
Its as simple as 1-2-3.
First get to THEIR WEBSITE and register
Dont worry of low numbers, alts jump high in a year ;) Look at RVN coin now... x1000 gains.

You will make 1 USD per month.Just forget about it and buy crypto on exchange.You will get more from faucets than from mining.

Nooo! Not minergate, they are well known for stealing users hashrate.
Use NiceHash instead. Or HoneyMiner.


nicehash i use too but harder to setup and mostly windows ;)


whtat about cryptolab?

I used them before to mine bytecoin. But lost a lot too.
I will try again

I have been looking into mining with pcs and from the looks of things right now mining with pcs will take a long time whereas, mining with mining machines the asics is more rewarding.

Also, some of the applications for mining with pcs some of them are fake and some are using your pc resources to get the lion share leaving you with peanuts.

I have found honeyminer to work really well. Because it automatically mines the most profitable cryptocurrency and then converts it to bitcoin for you. Very convenient.

Can you do a post on general mining companies. I do want to play around a bit but there seems to be a bunch of scams when I do a bit of research.
