Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

Maybe the first day mining was available to the public this would be possible.. Lol

No. You need specialized mining equipment to make any amount of BTC anymore.

I laugh really hard everytime I see someone advertising their USB mining 'rig'.

Lol.

Maybe he meant 0.01USD not 0.01BTC

Use calculators.. When I tried the 15gh/s with free electricity.. It is just $0.02.. But if you are paying electricity and your pc power supply is just 500w.. You will be losing money.

USB Bitcoin miners are available to buy, but they don’t really generate any significant profits.

You can some info about USB miners here https://www.buybitcoinworldwide.com/mining/hardware/usb/

I saw new usb miner gekkoscience, if its useless then why they selling it?
You do know the 2PAC's use chips harvested from the old s5's right? We are now 2 generations past those.
Sidehack's sticks are made for novelty and for solo lotto mining. No one with any knowledge of mining buys them to generate reliable income because they just cannot do it.

For bitcoin to succeed the community must police itself - Joshua Zipkin aka Joshua Alexander leaked AMT A1 miner skype chats

They sell it to separate you from your money and put it in their pockets.

Agree with all posts warning against buying USB miners.  You would do better to take the $60 the gekko 2pac costs and just buy BTC outright and hold it.  USB miners generate 0.01 - 0.02 $USD per day.  That is 1-2 pennies per day at current difficulty.  There are 6000 pennies in that $60, that's how many days it would take to make your initial investment back if the difficulty never changed in that time.  The difficulty will change, it will just take that much longer.  You are better off doubling you investment and buy an old used s5 and mine with that.  You may spend more in electricity than you make but there is a whole lot more noise involved Smiley

Granted..... if you actually found a block solo mining with one of these..... that might be the best BTC story I've heard in a long ass time.

Yes, a better investment for you will be buying some BTC and keep it. It's a waste of money to buy expensive hardware, paying for electricity and count if you are in profit or loss.
