Title: Is there a crypto I can mine on my laptop
Post by: Bboy82 on March 28, 2021, 09:51:16 PM
Hello all, I was wondering if any of you know of any cryptocurrencies I could mine on my pretty standard laptop (Aspire V3-771G)?

Thanks  :)

The gpu inside the laptop is what matters, what is the name of the GPU in the laptop? It's not 100% recommended to mine on laptop though but running miner on laptop for few hours a day is still a go especially if the laptop is gaming laptop, if your gpu has 4gb vram then download nicehash software on the laptop to see the most profitable coin for the GPU

 GPU Nvidia GeForce GT 650M is what probably you have.

Cryptonight &likes are the only thing that I will mine with it.

Turtlecoin, Haven, Zano are probably the best choices at the moment.

I don't think you will become rich with it but you will be able to pay the energy bill.

Probably Nicehash and Minerstat are the easiest choices, I will probably go with TeamRedMiner if it works, and I will setup my personal wallet for what I am going to mine and Holding and just selling enough to pay the energy bill.

but its up to you

Your laptop is about 9 years old.
The GT 640M or GT 650M graphics card is not suitable for cryptocurrency mining.
Your laptop's cooling is not designed for such loads.
Even if the electricity is free, I would not do mining on this laptop.

You can mine monero on cpu but it will be waste of time and all, because maybe it will make you 0.01-0.03$ for day with that cpu.

OK thanks all. As my laptop is not a gaming laptop I think it is probably correct that there would be no benefit from trying to mine anything

Definitely not good for mining, that laptop is a old laptop with weak CPU and GPU, if you seriously want to mine coins it's better to sell this laptop and spend money on GPUS and desktop PC, even a single GPU will do fine
