How can I set up an Arduino UNO board to mine bitcoins? And what extra components do I need for building it? If you ever did it, where you got the information from?

PD: I am just planning to do it as a little project.

First, see if anyone has written a cryptography library for it which includes SHA256.

Got a new 28-135GH stick miner!
Currently in development - 100+GH USB stick; 800GH 60W pod; 6TH volt-adjustable S1/3/5 upgrade kit

You can do sha256 hashes on paper.  That part is super simple.

Just emulate the same packet structure as a known asic out there... Have it take in and out out the same data as the ASIC would...  This way you need not code a driver to go between the miner app and the uno.

Anything more conplicated and you would need networking libraries, and a slew of other coding/programming to get it to communicate with a wallet for mining....  Idk, maybe I'm thinking of it too much as a standalone.

But an app could have to feed it data and accept return results like any miner app does....

*edit* after a bit more thought; just get a one chip stickminer;  learn how the ASIC communicates, and make an arduino sit in place of the asic processing SHA256 hashes.... there's a youtube of a guy doing a SHA256 hash on paper; very good for getting an image of what the code structure for hashing will look like.


simple.  effective.
