Getting Started with Crypto Mining



Is mining at home profitable? That depends on which coins you’re mining, the hashing difficulty of the network, the equipment you’re using, and the price of electricity where you’re mining.

I’ll teach you what you need to know to get started with mining and make your setup more profitable.

    @Naomi Brockwell Could you do a review of mining Helium $HNT Please?
    $500 for a unit. Very quiet, very cheap to run (approx $5 per year) It looks like a router. Looks like an opportunity for passive income to me imo. I believe the Bobcat 300 is one of the better ones apparently.

    Interesting video. I live in a bus with a solar PV system, and in the sunny months I make more electricity than I need. Maybe crypto mining would be a good place to dump the excess power. I'd probably only run the rig 6 to 8 hours a day, so I wouldn't make a lot, but it's essentially free money.

    Nice channel, btw. Not sure how I ended up on one of your videos, but I've watched about 6 of them in a row and subscribed. Thanks for the information.

    It still does not make sense to me. A computer guesses a number and someone pays money to the owner of the computer?
    At a job, the boss pays money to the worker for providing a service.
    Guessing a random number does not seem like anything productive.

    I tried mining on my desktop as a test and couldn't get it to read from the server. Oh and Norton wasn't having it. And I can't afford a dedicated miner.

    Sometimes the time it takes to break even on the money you spend and the running cost you would've been better to put that cash straight into the crypto you planned to mine.

    Offcourse it has more profit in ethereum because of high gas fees per transaction😒 That is a flaw in ethereum. Buy bitcoin instead which is most decentralize and very very low cost fees thank to lightning network 🚀🚀🚀

    KYC means nothing. So do "regulations" there was a massive stock crash on the stock market in my country. Guess what? The so called sage fiat stock markets had stocks based on nothing. Backed by nothing. Shell companies. The stock tanked harder than any crypto I've ever seen. Bit sure Crypto is so dangerous. Keeping my money in my bank is dangerous. It's a worthless currency that's only ever gone down since I've been born.

    KYC for mining ove never heard of such things. KYC is a word that makes me shudder. A disgusting word. A misleading word. KYC is the devil's work and all it does is create a while bunch of personal info floating online. You don't need to know who someone is to trust them. Only gullible people believe kyc gives any form of protection. Scammers don't even care if you know who they are or where they live. They cheeky. So many projects have Dev teams that pass "KYC" and it means nothing because they still scam investors. I don't care who the person is. I don't need to know. The only people who ever need to know your ID info is your bank your government and you. My government even urges people never to give their info up. It's just a way to enable criminals to be even more criminal. They lock you out your account under the guise of "KYC" this is taking hostage of your funds. "Tell us who you are what you look like and where you live or we will keep your funds" meanwhile you have no idea who you are talking to or who even runs the company. I always tell them "sure I'll give you my KYC bit you go first, no? Didn't think so"

    Explains why I'll never invest in Bitcoin perfectly. Way too energy intensive. The interviewee explaining how they are firing up old coal power plants to mine Bitcoin highlights the issue. This is exactly the opposite of where society needs to be moving with energy use.
    Newer cryptos based on POS and similar technologies are more useful, faster and more efficient. I find them considerably more interesting.
