How can mine? Source:

As we already informed, mining — quite a fascinating process, the essence of which is that the computing device searches for unique solutions for blocks of network crypto-currencies that are supposed to reward. Its size depends on the value of a particular cryptocurrency. Obtained reward the miner can be exchanged for other, more expensive or popular cryptocurrency, or bring in real money (Fiat). To start mine you can at least on the netbook, but there — as with goat milk, so we can talk about how you can start to take this seriously. The success of this activity depends largely on the computing power available to the miner. And discuss them.

To start somehow mine at home, you will need a modern computer (farm). 4 GB is sufficient (or more) RAM and a motherboard that supports multiple graphics cards, and, of course, will require themselves on the video card. For starters, you can do one, but in the future nothing prevents to add a couple more to the existing configuration. As for models, you can select the appropriate price and performance options.

As the operating system can use the normal Windows 10 64-bit. Of particular interest are offered to install something specialized — already have an OS, designed specifically for mining, ethOS, for example, that «imprisoned» mining of Ethereum cryptocurrency.

All of this needs to plug it in, prepare for a sharp increase in fees for electricity and to connect to good Internet.

Next, select the server (pool) for mining Ethereum or for different cryptocurrencies. After it remains only to start the wallet. How to do it, we have already informed.

Mining on GPU farms are good for beginners. It will allow mined a certain number of crypts, to understand the nuances and decide for yourself whether to do it in the future. If the decision is in favour of mining, and you decided to continue, may appear and desire to reach a new level. Here's the handy special devices — ASIC, or simply miners.

Some of them developed specially for the production of a particular cryptocurrency, many support mining several and very popular. As ASIC — a specialized device designed for certain tasks, it can cost much more. As a rule, their prices start from a few thousands small dollars and can reach tens of thousands — all largely depends on the power of the specific device, its universality and relevance of a miner on the market. Often to get a certain model is quite difficult, because the manufacturer has not yet produced new devices and old ones they sell on eBay for big money. About specific models we'll talk later. In the meantime, you can read about the experience of ordering some models of such devices.

There is such a thing as cloud mining. In this case, the equipment necessary to perform all the complex calculations, the user is provided with the rent and is not his home, and in specially equipped places. It is assumed that, for a fee, the user can gain access to leased computing power and fuck with this any kind of benefit, but not profitable in this case the equipment owners themselves create, and not to take their «iron»? It is here and there is a catch. As practice shows, in 90% of cases all of these «reliable and proven» services actually are not very honest, so experts recommend avoiding them.
