1  Other / Beginners & Help / Distributed Mining with Idle Processing Power (CPU) on: November 29, 2013, 07:17:26 PM
Hello All,

I'm new to Bitcoin Forum, hello!

I just bought my first bit of bitcoin today. Not trying to jump on the hype bandwagon-- been trying to get involved in it for a while. Today I did some research on Peercoins and I'm very excited about the possibilities.

I remember back in the early 2000's, I was reading about C++ and Java and found that there were people installing voluntary shareware that used the spare computing power on their machines to drive academic computation. This was an amazingly interesting space, and now I wonder if the same technique could be used to mine bitcoins. I run some heavy content-driven websites + applications, and I was wondering the viability of attaching this mining to my work.

Any ideas?

Thanks for all your help.
