Can You Mine Crypto On A Chromebook??



In the quest to utilize as much CPU power I have available, I wanted to try and see if I could do some CPU crypto mining on my newer Samsung Galaxy Chromebook.

Currently I have all my CPU’s in the house mining Scala (XLA), and at least this chromebook has the capability of mining it as well. You need to use the linux command line miner, and run it in the “linux apps” part of your chromebook.

    Could you rig a HP Chromebox TPN-Q150 mini PC to mine with external GPU's powered by a psu or would the software/hardware in mini pc create problems ? Since its Chrome OS this is uncharted territory but it should work since the mini pc is used for basic function while the gpu should mine ok or good. Cheap alternative to building a motherboard & other components to mine. I will buy one to monkey around with the real issue, will it be a drag on gpu mining and I think not but if you can mine with a laptop chrome book and not expect cash cow, you should see decent gpu returns with a low cost chromebox mini pc. Maybe? I will experiment soon. What do you think? Old video but its worth mentioning since used HP mini are $50 on ebay

    Just came across your channel and wanted to say I like the content. It's nice to find a channel that's willing to cover more obscure topics that are still worth sharing.

    Just a humble suggestion but it might save you some frustration… if you're zoomed in and the camera won't refocus to the foreground subject, try using your free hand (or whatever's "handy" ✋😄) and cover up more of the background. It should snap right in to focus after that. Sorry for the pun…
