Greetings fellow lads Smiley

I´m newbie to all this BTC farming and talking on forums but i wan´t to give it a try.!

Here is my question:

I created an account at bitcoin.cz and installed cgminer on a win7 laptop.
cgminer has been running for 1 day now and it says once or twitch an hour "stratum from pool 0 detected new block"
But when i go to the website "bitcoin.cz" and check my workers nothing changed and everything is still in zero.
Should i just keep cgminer running some more time or what did i properly do wrong?

Hope someone out there can help me out here.?

Best regards and happy farming Smiley

Stop mining btc with your laptop you will get nothing with it. You need asics to mine bitcoin. You better mine ripple go to computingforgood.org. After you have ripple xrp you can exchange it with bitcoin.

Welcome.

1. Please stop mining btc with CPU/GPU, it is pretty much meaningless.
2. It is pretty easy to overheat your laptop with mining.

Welcome Bourja, Bitcoin uses SHA-256 (a cryptographic hash functions) and in the beginning it was profitable to mine using your computer's CPU and GPU. With time mining difficulty increased and specialized mining boards came out called ASICs (application-specific integrated circuit) designed specifically to solve SHA256 hashes and do nothing else. Since ASICs are much much faster compared to GPUs, mining bitcoins without specialized software has become a bit "obsolete" (although possible).

It is very likely that everything is OK with your system but it would just take a very very very long time to mine a BTC block on a standard computer (using just your CPU/GPU).

There are of course alternative cryptocurrencies that are based on scrypt rather than SHA256 which are more 'GPU friendly' if you will. The most popular scrypt coin is probably Litecoin. You could mine Litecoin with a good GPU using a Litecoin dedicated pool. Another option would be mine at a multipool. A multipool is a pool that has multiple currencies. Some payout in bitcoins like Easypool.me.

Happy mining!

Stop mining any coins with laptop.
It will burn your laptop.
Mining bitcoin is very hard now. It is better you purchase the bitcoins.

  • "stratum from pool 0 detected new block" means a block was found on the network, not necessarily on your pool.  Slush's pool (bitcoin.cz) has only found 3 blocks in the past 26+ hours.
  • you need to see if cgminer shows that you are actually submitting shares

Slush's pool is the worst one you could use with a CPU/GPU because it uses his own score based payout system.  This means that shares you submit decline in value over time so if you are mining really slow (and you are) or you stop mining during a round then your shares can/will go to zero value.  You need to mine on a pool that uses PPS or PPLNS so that you actually get paid for the few shares you are submitting.  here is a link to compare pools - https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Comparison_of_mining_pools
