Thanks for replying - using 'multipool autoswitching program' is good advice.

Yeah CPU mining is generally not very good, I'm not endorsing CPU mining or Minergate etc just trying to make it as easy as possible for a noob... For people who are more competent: yeah avoid Minergate, also CPU mining isn't profitable (most of the time) and a lot of GPUs aren't even profitable...

Cheers

yes your article is still nice as an entry point to mining :)

yes certainly was for me, but I also get from your comments that it might not be worth it with Minergate. Well at least now I understand a bit more, would be cool if I could mine some crypto, but I think I need to learn more to decide.
