Hey all - so I'm pretty new with mining; I've used Minergate for the past year or so, and I've used coinpot.co for about 6 months for occasional web mining. But how do I set myself up to actually mine coins - say Bitcoin Private. I know I can get a Raspberry Pi maybe or something of that nature, but I wouldn't have a clue as to next steps. Anyone able to shed some light on how to get involved with mining - what I can get (without spending a shit ton of money) to get myself started and in a place where what I'm doing is actually worthwhile financially?

Any suggestions as to good coins to mine / resources etc.

Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance all.

So you've got a candidate coin to mine eh.. its a good start.. Bitcoin Private is an equihash Type Coin Algo, the best hardware to mine these are the NVIDIA GPU's Ex. 1080ti's

I'm afraid you cant avoid spending a bit on these, especially on today's price and availability

when you are already decided then setup a mining CPU gear

a lot of them already posted here to choose from depends on your taste and preferences

Goodluck on your mining plan

Don't know if you realize but the bright red background of font you choose is just killing my eyes in a dark room.

Not that simple

In fact, mining has many materials to learn moreover for a beginner. Started by choosing a hardware such Motherboards, PSUs, USB Riser then setting Rig, GPUs, solve a problem when Rig setting has a problem. choosing a software miner to adjust with GPU brands. choosing the right Pool, not yet else a problem hash rate, choosing coins to adjust to GPUs brands etc. which is impossible to write down all.
