Is there a way to make mining on an iMac profitable? Or should I just stick with selling services?

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Not sure if this is allowed on this forum specifically, but I'd really like an answer, so...

Bump?

iMac + mining = Melted iMac. At least one forum poster's done it. Stick with services, for now.

That applies for almost any kind of laptop mining.  Out of curiosity I tried running a GPU miner on my Alienware and it got way too hot for comfort quickly so I shut it down.

If you're mining on a Mac install a fan control app so you can monitor and adjust the fan speeds if things get a little hot (which they will).

I doubt you'll find it profitable though.

I'm mining with my MacBook Pro but only as part of a pool, and only when I'm using it anyway. For 24/7 mining I useother more suitable machines.
