Neighbor was throwing away what looks a bitcoin mining setup? Pulled a free core i3-7100 out of it! Does anyone know if the motherboard or those small pci-e boards are worth anything? I can post closer-up pics if needed
I recently bought an antminer s9 that I would like to get up and running. However, I can’t seem to figure out how to connect it to my mobile hotspot. Has anyone done this before? Should I use a router or a wireless Ethernet bridge? I bought 2 different routers now thinking that if I connected the miner to the router it could connect to the hotspot. But not only can you not wirelessly bridge devices, I can’t configure the router without an Ethernet internet connection, and my hotspot has not Ethernet jack. If someone could please help me out of this conundrum that’d be fantastic.
Fastest way to level up “attention”. Trying to build the bitcoin mining setup and require “attention level 3” to move on
Tried searching the sub for answers but all I can find is what the attention skill means. If I am missing the answer already written then maybe I personally need more attention. Anyway, I have nearly everything I need for the bit coin mining machine/ intelligence center lvl 2, just need to see what’s the best way to level attention.
hey bitcoin! I’m looking into mining bitcoin through solar energy in a sustainable way. I’m still doing my feasibility study and would love to have some best practices that you might have tried or heard of. Thanks bitcoin 🙏🏻 !
I have a 2 Dell Optiplex 7040 with Nvidia GTX 745 and a few more powerful CPU's at my disposal. I technically don't pay for electricity. I have been trying to setup mining, without success, on these computers.
I want to know which crypto mining will be most effective for me [I was thinking of SolarCoin, Bitcoin, Ripple, and LiteCoin]
Which wallet to use?
How to set up the mining process? [ Any simple tutorials would be super nice]
Any other detail if I am missing anything.

Hello all I am planning on buying a 300 GH/s ASIC miner (https://products.butterflylabs.com/300-gh-bitcoin-mining-card.html) I was wondering if someone could tell me how to solo mine bitcoins and if this product is worth the money. And also would I really be making hundreds of dollars a month if I constantly mine 24/7? Thank you!

After seeing the pic of the Bitcoin mining setup, what causes can i help with my spare computing power, such as GIMPS?
After reading through the comments in the picture f the bitcoin mining setup, i stumbled across this comment by 0xD153A53. For the lazy:
If only that computing time was going to something productive, like protein folding or theoretical physics while earning bitcoins... -- 0xD153A53--
I currently have GIMPS working in the background of my PC for the heck of it and to help with something. I think 0xD153A53's comment brings some interesting alternative's into thought. Do any redditors know of other worthwhile causes out there to contribute spare computing power to? again, for the lazy: GIMPS is an acronym for the Great Internet Mersienne Prime Search which search for Mersienne Prime numbers, which are numbers 1 less than a base 2 number. e.g. 3 ((22)-1) and 7 ((23)-1). They are much bigger now and require lots of processing power.
Bitcoin mining setup on Mountain Lion throwing an error...
Hey all... I am getting an error when I attempt to start up bit coin on my Mountain Lion setup... Agamemnon:poclbm JP$ /Applications/Bitcoin-Qt.app/Contents/MacOS/bitcoin-qt -server &  46626 Agamemnon:poclbm JP$ python /Applications/poclbm/poclbm.py -u XXXX --pass XXXX -d 0libc++abi.dylib: terminate called throwing an exception Traceback (most recent call last): File "/Applications/poclbm/poclbm.py", line 3, in from BitcoinMiner import * File "/Applications/poclbm/BitcoinMiner.py", line 4, in from log import * ImportError: No module named log + Abort trap: 6 /Applications/Bitcoin-Qt.app/Contents/MacOS/bitcoin-qt -server I have googled the above error with little success. Anyone else out there using mountain Lion? If this helps, I installed the latest bitcoin which is called bitcoin QT. The docs I have for mining setup dictate to edit the bit coin.conf file and add "echo "rpcuser=username" > ~/Library/Application\ Support/Bitcoin/bitcoin.conf echo "rpcpassword=password" >> ~/Library/Application\ Support/Bitcoin/bitcoin.conf" There was not a bit coin.conf file, so I created it and added the two requisite lines above. Still get the error "abi.dylib: terminate called throwing an exception" and bit coin crashes. Any help out there? Thank you.. CW
I'm thinking about buying a 20.5 th/s bitcoin mining setup for 7,000$ Canadian. 1 bitcoin is 371$ Canadian. I project around 1,600$ monthly profit at current difficulty, current power price in my local area, and current value. Is this a safe assumption? I understand the value is quote volatile but I personally see the value going up. Is the difficulty going to rise exponentially to the point of little to no profit? Anybody with some advice and assistance would be great.
Recently started experiencing game crashes that crash my entire pc, are the games at fault or my hardware?
Hello guys, after a ten day vacation i returned back home excited to play games again. Before my vacation i found out about need for speed heat, and found my love for modded skyrim again! Sadly, that excitement didn't last long. NFS won't even start up the actual game; it will load until a loading screen occurs and then just black screens my computer. My computer will definitely still be on but my monitor goes into power saving mode and nothing responds. Same thing happened with skyrim and i had to disable performance heavy mods which solved that problem. I thought downloading new AMD drivers would maybe solve the problem, nfs heat actually got to the start up screen this time but once again crashed in loading screens. I know its probably very obvious, but does it sound like my hardware is at fault? These two games were definitely both running perfectly before my vacation, both on ultra high graphics settings. My gpu (radeon rx 570 series) has been used in a bitcoin mining setup by the previous owner, and i'm scared it might be starting to die now. Just want to know for sure if it sounds like that's at fault before i decide to buy a new graphics card.
