Hello! At the moment, I don't use my Raspberry Pi for something usefull. A friend of my recommended that I could start mining Bitcoin. I have never done it before (Just some days on my computer. Manged to mine 0,00x something Bitcoin), and I wanted to try it out after reading this. I know that I am not able to generate that much Bitcoin, but I just want to start. As I said, I don't use it to anything else. Why not mining for Bitcoin? I have never done it before on Linux. My idea was to buy a USB Hub, a fan, and a lot of these. So, how would this actually work with the Raspberry? I am afraid that it's using a bit to much power than the Raspberry can handle. Fortunately, the USB Hub is powered. Can I buy two of these hubs, and then connect 9 miners on each? Is this actually possible? Do you have any great tutorials on how I can easily set up a miner on Raspberry Pi? Thank you very much!
Hey y'all, So I'm thinking of grabbing myself some mining gear, not for the purpose of raking in the dough but more like something to fiddle around with. I came across these miners on Kijiji, and they're selling these ASIC Block Erupter miners. Does anyone have any experience with these?
Wanting to get started in goldcoin/dogecoin mining!
Hey there Reddit! So, I've been watching the bitcoin market for sometime now and I've been wanting to get started. However, the price of mining equipment has pulled me back from mining. When I was looking into other cryptocurrencies however, I found that mining with ~$100ish hardware could be at least a little bit profitable. After doing some research, I found this on Amazon. I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with this miner, and if it's any good. I've done my own research and so far pretty much everyone seems to like it and it works well. Just wondering if anyone here knows any fallbacks with this specific miner. Note: I know that I won't be reaping in any major profit with this thing, I just want to mine for a little bit of fun. Ignore the profitability/ROI part, I just want to know if it works.
Bitcoin mining made really easy/BFGminer quick start guide
There is 2 parts to this If i am missing somthing of if you want to add to this then please tell ms so i can make the changes. All is one and one is all.

So if you new or experienced bitcoin miner you should know that shit ain't free. The reason for this is the fact that electric isn't free.(Oh the fun days we would have if it was) When mining there is always going to be a cost, like how to pay for the Hardware, and the power and the maintenance and something that everyone forgets, The time it can take to set up the hardware and the scripts to miner. I chose to do a side project on this and got my own Asic miner USB Block eruptor that mines at 336mhs. It took me about 6 hours to write a working batch file. So show i wanted to show it to you all because it is a pain in the ass. BFGMINER PART So If your using "ASICMiner Block Erupter USB 333-336MH/s Sapphire Miner" You have found the right page You will need install the drivers here is the link = These drivers may be downloaded from: http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/USBtoUARTBridgeVCPDrivers.aspx So this is what i use BFGMINER.exe Verson 3.2.1 So i made a batch file With this in it.(If you need help making this then please tell me.I don't mind helping.) C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\bfgminer-3.2.1-win64\bfgminer-3.2.1-win64\bfgminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://uk1.ghash.io:3333 -u YOURNAMEHER.worker1 -p YOURPASSWORD --disable-gpu -S all -o stratum+tcp://uk1.ghash.io:3333 This is my mining pool -S all will find all divices -disable-gpu because i don't want it to mine on my GPU. Make this the location of you BFG miner C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\bfgminer-3.2.1-win64\bfgminer-3.2.1-win64\bfgminer.exe -u YOURNAMEHER.worker1 This is your username and workername. -p YOURPASSWORD This is your password So from all of this it worked i have basically pieced together everything that i found to make the batch file that will start mining Woot Woot Empty Space Bitcoin mining made really easy PART How to start * Sign up at Cex.io if you don't already have an account. Then you can buy GH/S of mining speed. From Ebay Just type in Cex.io in ebay and you will find it all. READ ALL THE POSTS CAREFULLY. People can and will be dicks and try to trick you like saying 10000 kh/s of mining power, People that is 10 mb/s. Aka nothing When you get a voucher code You will immediately start mining Bitcoins. You don't have to worry about setting anything up, electricity, power outages, or bad hardware. The Benefits *No technical knowledge required. *No hardware to maintain. *No software to configure. *No electricity cost. *If there server gose down they will bous your speed of the miner to make up for the down time(that is really cool, i only had this happen once......The went down for about 13 hours and i normale was mining at 2gbs but the bumped me up to 6 gbs for a few hours to make up for the down time... *You can buy gh/s witht the bitcoins you mine. *Supports Merged mining.This means it Mines Bitcoin, Namecoin, Devcoin, and IXcoin at the same time!
