how hard is it to mine eth? does it work on the same blockchain as btc? what is the reward currently at? ive never actually looked into the mining of other digital currencies

Just downloaded minergate and pressed mine, easy as fuck, though probly way shittier and slower then doing it the manual way

Jeez, I have an r9 290 and I got like one eth/day.

I followed a tut uploaded a month ago here though, where I installed a miner and connected to a pool.

It was some time ago but what you're getting is still very very low I think.

I can't post the link cuz I'm lazy and on my phone but it's called "how to mine ethereum on a mining pool" and it's one video so you should be able to find it easily.

It's the vid where he installs geth (the actual miner), then types some fancy code (makes the miner use the gpu, and deposit it in the pool).

@Nude_Bikergirl

also , im pretty noob and wondering, do you know if it becomes harder to mine as the price goes up respectievly?

@Harmless_Venom

No. It becomes harder to mine, the more is mined.

Harder to Mine -> higher price

but there is no inherent connection between price and mining difficulty.

Also, what cards do you have?

And how long ago was this?

I have a R9 390X 8G and mine a maximum of 0.23 ETH on a very good day. Most days it's around 0.21.

Is that pic from some shitty porno? I'm pretty sure TSA workers can't legally give you a pat-down if you're of the opposite gender, and are also required to wear gloves when doing so.

Also, why do the women behind the scanner look like skeletor women from 'they live'?

At any rate, I'd like to mine her eth, if you know what I mean, wink wink.

with the increased difficulty, doesn't the electricity cost make it pointless to mine eth?

@viagrandad
also while i'm at it, how much do you think a GTX970 could mine using the mining pool from @TalkBomber

RumChicken

@cum2soon
The same or a little less. AMD gpus are faster for mining.

Compare Tfops when comparing cards for mining.

Just use the best mining program, literally automines the most profitable coins, I've already made quite a bit

@RumChicken
ok thanks, can you also answer my other question? @viagrandad

@iluvmen
Depends, probably not with a 970, it might with an r9 390x though.

unless you post your electricity bill, your gpu, your living area, noone can answer that question.

i can't post my electricity bill but i'm from Bulgaria. i think we have one of the cheapest electricity costs in the EU, comparable with China. something like 0.09 cents/kwh.

my gpu is GTX 970. from what i could find, it can provide a hashrate of 17.9 MH/s. i read some comments on a youtube video tho where some dude said he overclocked his gtx970 w/o issues and got up to 46 MH/s, which seems like bullshit to me?

0.09 cents/kWh is really, really cheap. Not saying you're wrong, but I pay 24cents/kWh.

live in a flat where I don't pay electricity
have a new computer with a 390
time to let it mine while I'm at work I guess

I can make 7 cents a day with Minergate. Hooray. Why do people do this? Just wondering.

ETH is a mess but I like op picture

I just joined an ether mining pool on ethermine.org and am currently mining from the command prompt on windows.

The thing is, how do I view how much ether I have? Is there some kind of wallet I can see? I wanna send some of this ether to yobit or kraken and trade with it.

Someone please respond.
