I'm mining with one Sapphire r9 270x Vapor, getting 470kh/s. It's not much, but it's actually making profit and I believe cryptocoins will grow.

I am mining with a Jupiter right now at 600GH/s but I am hoping to update it to a 2000 GH/s miner. I am really enjoying mining, and I just started a month ago. I have been pleasantly surprised at how nice and helpful the mining community has been around me. Everyone I have gotten the chance to email or meet through exchanges have been great!

Alright I'll try it again. That was a pain in the butt. But It finally loaded to where you can see them. The first image is with the patcher in the back ground hashing along at mid 400s. The second one I've turned the patcher off and it slows down to 180s. I turn it back on in the third and it goes back up to 400s. The only changes made to the computer between screen shots is the patcher being turned on and off no other programs or settings were touched. This doesn't work on my laptops NVidia 460m card.


Yes that's what I tried but no it doesn't work as straightforward on my card. I guess it's too old. Good info though, I'm sure some Nvidia users would give it a try.

I just installed macminer but 0 coins so far only been doing it a few hours. Not sure I know what I'm doing yet

I make cpa/affiliate landers and sales funnels as well as create the direct response copy and split test it for my clients. If you need any kind of marketing/sales work done, there is one free consultation to see if I can help you with your project after that get your bit/alt coins ready Smiley

Started mining alt-coins half way through December. Yes, late to the game, but it's also a pretty good investment for my personal computer part situation: Instead of a bunch of medium cards, I got an R9 290x. So even if I make nothing, Ill have a brand new graphics card that blows my old Nvidia 560 out of the water. My friend did the same thing, and we're mining together.

Actually, I'm really tempted to stop and play Tomb Raider and BF4 on ultra with it..

Anyone get close to 1BTC/day? If not, how long do you think it would take to get 1BTC from mining. I know it is depend on the mining hardware. Does anyone has a reliable spec for hardware to mine?

Just wondering how many actual miners there are in the newbie community...

I've been mining for about a month

I'm part of a mining pool, really only a newbie to these forums. Smiley

I am very sad because heard about crypto world too late.
My top grafic card that i bought in 2010 - now not so strong for mining, hell, i wish i knew about mining in 2010-2011.
however, i am started mining some day ago and i hope to upgrade my pc with moneys from mining, hope that my pc doesn't die from 24/7 mining. lol
don't have extra money to do upgrade immediatly, so only hope old card will work until i get new card.
Old card will help me to buy new card? unbelievable ))
only must choose right coins to mine..

Cheer up guys, it's NOT too late!

Mass adoption is not there yet: you still can't fund your PayPal account with BTC, you still can't exchange BTC/USD on institutional platforms, you still can't checkout your Amazon order with BTC, etc. BUT IT'S COMING!

As an early adopter, I would simply suggest any newbie here to buy or mine at least 1 BTC. I'm pretty sure it will get you at least a nice sports car in a few years.

 Wink If the consumer confidence is still there it might happen. Not that I need a sports car. But imagine there are only 240 mil of something available and there are 9 billion people on the planet or whatever who want to buy it. People keep multiplying at a much higher rate than bitcoin.

I'm mining ASICCoing at 5GH/s via BFL device. Not really earning much but i'm piecing together a sweet scrypt rig that will get me 3200Kh/s. Hopefully i can start making something at least. shit!!!

I'm curious if the Alpha Technology scrypt asic rig is actually a real thing or just some scam to get peoples pre-order $.

I've read a lot on alt coins and mining techniques and can help anyone trying to start. I've been trading and buying altcoins too which has been fun. Just somewhat risky at times but hey we all know this is a risky biz.

No idea about how serious or scammish it is, but there's something that must be kept in mind in the CPU/GPU/FPGA vs ASIC question:

Imagine a new altcoin coming up (think DOGE*), but with a slightly modified scrypt algo (think Jane...), or a new one (i.e. XPM, QRK...)

  • CPU/GPU miners just need to update the mining software,
  • FPGA miners need to reprogram their FPGA,
  • ASIC miners need to replace/upgrade (at least partly) their hardware!

* not implying that DOGE is the alt coin of the future...
