Bitcoing is illegal where I live. But guys have a question. Is bitcoin mining still viable? Or altcoin is more profitable? According to what I know bitcoin mining is almost completed. What's your opinion?

Who said mining is illegal. In all the country including USA ,doing mining is legalized one.Even you can start mining industry by investing money in it.If you want to do business and all proceeds with mining. Only mining will give you enough Profit as compared to trade and saving. You can do Solar Mining.

Which the OP has still never said.
Without saying where they are is like asking everyone here, 'will it rain today'?

that's seriously right. how can we answered OP correctly if we don't have any idea about his location just figured it out after reading most of the replies
to those who lives where bitcoin is legal mining wont be a problem but place like N.korea where government really In control I think mining is not legal
and you can be persecuted.

Mining Bitcoin and it's legality depends upon the country it is is. Bitcoin can be used for legitimate uses, I got my BTC to FIAT debit card today for example, it can also be used for illegal activities thereby 'tainting' the coins and making them used for a bad cause? I think maybe the main point with mining is if you cross a certain threshold and coins starts becoming an income or investment, there will probably be some tax to pay on it, depending upon your tax status.

It seems to me that the government doesnt care about miners in our days. But in the future their role will increase and the miners will even encourage or even legitimize them.

I dont know any country where mining is illegal  Undecided

Unfortunately, it's illegal in Venezuela. The government has banned Bitcoin mining and citizens who are caught mining are being prosecuted. It's really sad as many folks have resorted to mining because their national currency has decreased in value so much that many of them are unable to survive on their salaries alone. Out of desperation, they have turned to mining, even though they now face prosecution many are still mining because they simply can not afford to live without mining.

Ya true buddy. In some countries the mining of bitcoin is still offence. They were arrested if they involved in mining so.But in my country, mining of bitcoin is legal.So I had started mining with solar panels and gained many dollars. Even I was working in Signature Campaign to earn some more bitcoin.

Yes, Bitcoin mining is a legal process done by the miners to make successful and fair bitcoin transactions.
When someone makes any kind of purchase or transaction by bitcoin a block-chain grows until there are any block.
Miners get together and computations to verify the block-chain are done through all the transactions on the block.

Depends country to country. As we can now see china has gone wild with its regulations and they are now having bitcoin as illegal. So it's impossible to mine in china now and miners might have gone wild too.


Anyway, I believe in most of the country bitcoin is legal to mine and you can get more information from the legal advisor.

Got a new idea. Mining can be cost effective if used on solar energy. But have to know if mining is legal or not or I can get in to trouble for it.
