Just wondering if anyone else here mined or collected any sort of crypto coins
i have been doing so myself for about 2 years - on and off and been loving it - not going to get rich i know but if i can buy a few games with the money it's all good
just interested to see if any fellow gamers are also fellow miners
i use a bunch of different sites but always open to new ones (won't say what they are due to not wanting to promote)
this is just a fellow being interested and noting more

I haven't done it.
It seems that I also procured a personal computer for humankind and left the personal computer on until the room became hot to help with the calculation.📡
Recently, it seems that there are some mining acts that also serve as academic calculations.
I'm interested in such things, but I'm skeptical about those that don't seem like a waste of energy consumption.
e? Do you say it's wasteful to help find an alien?

you don't mine using your own machine or pc left on - you would use one or more of the many sites out there to mine/ collect with like what i'm doing it is slow to start but builds up over time
Just invested a few days ago in crypto currency :)
really cool for which coin? i'm mostly getting Ltc
Unfortunately, I am not really that good informed ( my brother convinced me...)
but I invested in wise token.
But I will probably also invest in Bitcoin later
well good luck
Wish you the same :)
Burning a lot of electricity and wearing down my hardware doing meaningless math for a fraction of spent value which also might collapse to a worth of bubble gum stickers any day? No thanks.
i disagree - i don't mine it myself i use several sites out there to mine it on and it uses next to no more cpu or power at all and i only do it when i am online/on my laptop anyway - i can't say i'm rich from it but it is a nice hobby of mine
So... you mean that you pay them to mine for you or...?
If you don't pay, then they are using your computer lol
no i don't pay them i claim faucet payouts - which usually take no cpu or gpu on my side just some time - of course some sites let you invest or re-invest your coins for more/faster power but mostly i use sites which just give you a payment for using the faucet - it gets paid by seeing adds on their sites - they are not using my computer i can still do anything i could before when i have/are using these sites like watch Youtube or play a game or doing some work like invoices (i use these sites a lot at work)
edit: i guess you could say it is similar to survey sites - but i like these a lot more
Ummm... isn't the amount of money/currency you get as reward reaaaaaly low?
Wouldn't it be just better to do a survey once in a while?
Yes, it is really, really, really low. But if you can't find surveys in your country (or get rewards after 15 minutes of answering about a lot of products to get in the end "you are not what we are looking for." ). It is also easier, just click and leave.
When you say really low... If you don't mind me asking, is it enough to cover your electricity bill?
Depends where you live. But you won't mine, just enter on a site, click, watch an ad, prove you are not a robot, click again and leave or something like that.
So wait, you are not actually mining then? What resources does such a website require then?
mostly just time
I am not sure I understand, does the site use your ram then? You just stay on it and a counter goes up or something?
no it doesn't use your pc at all - depends on the site some let you claim every 5 minutes and some every hour
...so how does a site like that make money then?
As Artyrogue told you, it's filled with ads and you get a share of the money they get by you watching them.
if you want to know more add me on steam - i can send you the youtube channel i watch and they will tell you what to do - very clear and easy to follow (and they always their to answer questions)
correct. faucet sites are basically the crypto equivalent to other sites like swagbucks or instagc. many just have you watch ads, but some let you do other things like take surveys or give crypto in exchange for signing up for things or downloading android/ios games.
do these sites take a cut of what you mine
well there are some fees but you get most like 80 - 90% at least
Nice pyramid schemes.
And how can be doing nothing be a hobby?
how can it be a pyramid scheme? - pyramid scheme's don't pay and this does (not a lot like i said but still some)
I won't claim that this is a pyramid scheme, but you are also wrong about pyramid scheme's not paying out money. If they wouldn't pay during the initial stage(s), a pyramid scheme wouldn't work. They only stop paying when it finally collapses.
The first ones entering into the schemes got the most profits. Because mining in the initial stage it's easy and faster.
In your case, you're entering last in the race, that's why you get little profits.
well, afaik we have the most expensive electricitybill worldwide, mining wouldn't be as productive as in new sealand as an example. I personally dont have the knowledge how the miningprocess works. the only things i know about mining is, that gpu's are mostly used for monero and etherium mining, asic are more profitable for bitcoin mining and that gpu's are mostly downclocked and ram is overclocked as high as possible.
i think that is only if you actually have the miners yourself in your house/building which would never bring you a profit - i'm talking about using websites to collect coins in to your online wallet

"He sold? Pampeet"
sorry i don't get the reference

No idea which faucets you use, but make sure to cash out as soon as you hit the payout minimum limit, seen many of them suddenly close and disappear
i do and i have seen a fair few i use and not use as well go poof
Yeah, that's the main reason I stopped using them, wish you better luck than I had
Nope, I like having working hardware with actual resell value.
lol. Unless you don't pay for your own electricity, there's no reason to be mining on a consumer level. You'd be better off just investing.
well i pay for my electric at home of curse but none of what the miners use - unless you count the fees for withdraw
How old are you? Surely that hourly can’t be worth it to anyone that’s graduated high school.
Value your time appropriately, folks.
well firstly what's my age got to do with anything and secondly - i do think it's worth it
I asked because such a paltry pay rate is only worth it if you aren’t employable, i.e. too young to work. Getting paid cents per hour is severely undervaluing your own time.
i use them sometimes while i'm at work
you can use crypto to buy on IndieGala
thanks did not know that
I wish i would have gotten bitcoins x years ago, even told my dad about it, but he didn't dare to invest and i had no money.
Now it seems risky.
I got a 2080TI and coffee lake, but not gonna mine because of power bill.
well as i said it does not even use your cpu or gpu
Either what others said the pay out would be slim, eitherway there is a saying nothing comes for free in this world.
First time i hear about these type of sites.
well i do think it works
