Lately I'm interested in mining, and I often think to start mining on my laptop. I've heard that if we do mining in the laptop / pc, it can damage the device so that it becomes slow, is that correct?

Please tell me about the mining (whatever you want to say) and how can I start mining Huh Huh

You are quite alot of years late to start mining with a normal computer, mining with a laptop is a no go as it will not be able to handle all the heat and will be damaged in no time.

For mining Bitcoins (SHA-256) you will need to purchase specialized mining hardware (ASIC's) and for several other coins you will need to invest in GPU rigs or ASIC's aswell, otherwise the electricity costs will exceed your income from mining by alot. (with a laptop you will get a few cents each day max)

So mining is not recommended to use a laptop? If I may ask what I needed to start mining? Whether it requires a large capital? Maybe you can tell me the amount I needed for mining capital Huh

Mining is definetly not recommended with a laptop, it will propably take months or years to mine even a single dollar worth of coins while your laptop will propably not last longer then a week.

What you need and how much capital it costs depends on which coin you plan on mining, you can check out websites like www.coinmarketcap.com to decide which coins you are interested in.

Pretty much every coin has a base investment of atleast a few hundred dollars to get the hardware needed to start mining. (with a chance of mining at a profit, depending on your electricity costs)

Mining

Is based on your electrical power cost.

BTC IS the most established coin.  But it is costly to mine it.

A 1300 watt btc miner the s9 costs about 1550 usd add a power supply and you are close to 1700 up front

If your power is free that will earn near 8 usd a day. It would take 220 days or more to break even and start to make profit.

A 1300 watt used miner the s7 costs about 400 add a power supply and you are at 500 or so.

It earns 2.70 usd per day with free power  and you break even in 190 days. With free power.

Note free power.

If your power is 10 cents a kwatt you will most likely be a loser.
If your power is 5 cents a kwatt you might turn a profit

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Mining on the right laptop will not damage it. If you buy a laptop specially made for gaming with a Nvidia 1070 gpu in it, you can mine some algos and make a dollar or two a day. Sure the laptop costs $1700 and you will probably never pay for all of it. But it will not damage the laptop if your temperatures are fine. In a laptop, gpu temp is fine if under 80C, I prefer under 75C, and my current laptop mines at about 72C. I've been mining for two years on laptops and never damaged one. But I am not an idiot. I buy top of the line laptops made for gaming that have robust cooling. You don't want to mine on most laptops, and certainly not if your gpu temp in your overclocking software or gpu-z is too high.
