Hi, i am very new, op, i want to join the bitcoin mining, but where do i start, since i here so many things here.

some said i must download multitool, and blockchain client n
now here i see there are so many things mentioned.

where can a newbie start, please, instead of downloading the whole thing that we can not afford in terms of data plan, what do we do as a newbies.

Hope someone will be so petient to explain to me the step by step and joining the different pools as well.

Thank you so much in advance.

You dont need bitcoin core to mine with a pool. Depending on the hardware you use mining is probably not profitable for you.
See this section on profitability -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=81.0
Different mining software can be found here -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=42.0
If you need help regarding mining this would be the section -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=40.0
And finally pools are discussed here -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=41.0

You will certainly need a wallet sooner or later, but bitcoin core might not be the wallet for you. There are many different wallets and many of them do not require a full copy of the blockchain. -> https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet

I am a bitcoin lover just like any other user on this forum...
I compressed the files to save 10GB of bandwidth on each download.
Yes you don't have to trust me or any other new user. I only think that is better to give something instead of "Hello, I am new here..." message as my first post.
I have a 1GBPs server with plenty of space, so if some one want to save hours/days on a new installation of the bitcoin client (and does not have the files on hand) give it a try (and verify the authenticity of the file)

OP should really be edited and topic locked.
As of 0.10 there is no sense to make/download/seed torrents containing blockchain!

Just added a note to the OP.

The Bitcoin Core client is faster and more secure and is the preferred option.

The torrent will continue to be updated periodically for academic research and development purposes, as some secondary usefulness does remain.

Some ppl keep saying core v0.10.xx makes this obsolete - NOT TRUE!
My index corrupted and it took me over 4 days to sync again. Torrent was only 8 hours when it had more peers.
v00.10.xx is not the fix-all it was claimed to be.

Solo mining is alive and profitable!
Helped? Thanks! 1CXRFh4bDVFBsUzoHMMDbTMPcBP14RUTus

If your index corrupts it just needs to be rebuilt, there is no need to download anything. Also 0.10.0 and newer will download while syncing (which is the limiting part on most machines out there). If you speed up the download step, you don't measure the whole time it takes to get up to sync...

Is it normal for my bitcoin core to take upwards of 6-8 hours to reindex after my machine crashes? I am running v0.10.0.

Is there a faster alternative for reindexing so I can access my armory wallet without having to wait half a day or over night?

Prior to v0.10.0, I use to use the torrent to save some time but the torrent was very outdated back then. And now I'm seeing posts stating the torrent is obsolete?

The torrent shouldn't affect reindexing. You already have all of the blocks downloaded, so the torrent is useless for you. The reindex can only be sped up with either code modifications or getting better hardware.

Also, the torrent is already obsolete as it is both outdated and in v0.10+ headers first synchronization makes Bitcoin Core Download (but not index) the blockchain faster.

It is not.
You have grab torrent, copy it to proper directory, wait for reindex.
Not using torrent you just need to run Core and wait for download and index.
Because of parallel and non-linear downloading of chain from peers, at start it seems to be slow.
Anyway, not having SSD still need days to do 1st sync.

With new versions, the torrent is ABSOLUTELY NOT FASTER. It is faster and easier to allow Bitcoin Core to sync normally, no need to download a massive file, and the sync is faster due to headers-first synchronization.
