Some of my alternative results

I’ll go where the better returns are. I’ve mined big pools, small pools, Vertcoin one click, WinMiner, Cuba, ccminer, cpuminer, guiminer, ethminer and most of them suck. Either the set up is trash and there’s no info on what is needed for it to run, or the UI is atrocious.
NiceHash was simple- point and shoot. On top of that, it yielded good returns. WinMiner so far is the closest thing. CPU pointed at SUMO and GPUs pointed at VTC, it’s pulling roughly $5 a day. I also like that I can cash out in BTC, PayPal, or Vertcoin.
Slush pool yielded like, 0.01 after 24 hours Noobpool yielded 0.00 Give-me-coins VTC yielded 0.02 after like, 30 hours. Vertcoin one click might be okay if your pool doesn’t suck, but almost all the pools I found, did in fact suck.
Oh, I also briefly mined LBRY and got some very high hash rates and the currency started stacking up, but the currency is very very cheap, so the number of coins you get skyrockets, but it still equates to < $1
So, as of now, WinMiner is the only option that doesn’t suck.
GPU: GeForce 1070 ti CPU: I7 8700K 3.70ghz
Update: I gave AwesomeMiner a shot. I created the miner so it was automated and all I had to provide was my bitcoin address - then run it. It’s currently mining Nist5 from zpool and estimating $8/day
Some issues I’m currently working on with AwesomeMiner: It’s running my GPU fine, but configuring the CPU takes a little more time. I also have a MSI GT70 laptop with a Nvidia 870m that isn’t able to run the ccminer2.2.2 because it uses Cuda9, so trying to find a work around for that.

New to Ðogecoin?

Ðogecoin is a community friendly crypto-currency. Very similar to Bitcoin, but with a more noob-friendly and welcoming community. Be sure to check the sidebar - Being a new shibe though, you may be better served with a reddit-style self-post.
To do the special Ð character, hold alt and type 0208.
To do the special Ð character on Ubuntu 12.04: Ctrl + Shift + U; then type 00D0; finally press enter for Ð (Starkythefox)
To do the special Ð via HTML: & ETH; (no space) (cdeverett)
Do not expect to make a fortune in Ðogecoin. A Ðoge is worth about 0.00052 cents USD. The fact it has gotten so popular shocked even the creators, so consider Dogecoin your 'fuck around' cryptocurrency: You can afford to make mistakes while you learn.
What is a shibe? - A useholder of Dogecoin
What is this about the moon? - A lot of other cryptocurrencies including bitcoin expect the price of their coins to appreciate to the point they can buy huge mansions in which to store all their smaller mansions and little gold statues of other mansions. Shibes know the price of Ðogecoin will go to the moon. (Warning: Moon is not a tangible number. Heating in your house may be turned off if you attempt to pay in dogecoin)
Don't use an online wallet - Download the wallet program directly to your computer. You'll have full control and prevent leaving your Ðoge in the hands of strangers.
Sign up with a pool and try to mine some coin for yourself. Even if your computer sucks! It feels great when you see some mined coin pop up in your wallet.
Seriously. Try mining! Mining can be a bit daunting to begin with, but its very rewarding and you'll have a much better grasp of the beginning to end of how cryptocurrency works. (Unless you are using GUIMiner, you'll have to create a .bat file with your settings. Search/ask this subreddit if you get stuck)
Earning Ðogecoin Outside of mining - It's easy to earn Ðogecoin in the /dogecoin subreddit(s). Post something helpful or create funny content, you'll get tipped. Want to offer a silly service? check out /shibemarket/ (I bought reasons Mario Kart can suck my dick for 227 doges a pop a while back.) Hell, you can even beg or buy some.
Tipping: - Send a message to both tip bots to register so you can give and receive tips. The bots are so_doge_tip and dogetipbot. Send them each a message that says +register. It might take a while to get a response, but once you do you are ready to go.
Gambling: - What, is the emotional rollercoaster of a non-government backed, untested digital currency with all the worries of a pennystock and complications of FOREX not wild enough for you? I've seen a lot of people posting newly discovered gambling problems with this new found technology. You are best to avoid it. If you're looking to make money and are counting on Ðogecoin to make that happen - Just keep mining or buy in small, regular increments. The house always wins.
Faucets: (Thanks vidarino) Free dogecoin to get you started! You can get a very small bit of free Dogecoin in your wallet by inputting your receiving address into one of the faucets listed in the sidebar. Once you have some Ðoge of your very own, be sure to tip the faucets to help spread Ðoge to others! Don't be greedy and totally drain the faucets - they have very little and run on donations
http://dogefaucet.tk/ - No longer working
http://bartstuff.eu/doge/doge2.php - No longer working
http://freedoge.we-mine.it/ - No longer working
Where is your wallet.dat On win7 you can find that here: C:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\DogeCoin
Finally - /dogecoin is all about tipping, helping new shibes out, and posting memes and image macros.

Top Ten Bitcoin Mining Software

Top Ten Bitcoin Mining Software

https://preview.redd.it/eh88ad6bhg521.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=4cc9e53d0f8bbd9eeb972d30541a917b21765557
Despite the fact that mining in Bitcoin is not as profitable as it was a year ago, there are programs that make it possible to earn at least a few coins without extra expenses. Now analysts point out that there are ten programs, with the help of which users can get bitcoins.
Program NHM keeps the first line. With its help you can get not only Bitcoin, but also other coins. The program has a simple and convenient interface, there is support for the Russian language. It supports a number of algorithms at once, and the user himself can choose how to mine coins, in addition to bitcoin. Energy consumption when using it is very small.
Second place. Claymore’s Dual Miner
Many people consider it one of the most effective programs. Created in such a way that mine several currencies at once, bitcoin and ethereum. It is better to work with experienced users, as it is necessary to carry out fine-tuning.
The third place is occupied by EasyMiner. The program is free and has a very simple interface, and you can get not only Bitcoin, but also a number of other coins. The user can get all the information about how the mining process is going. It can also be used by beginners.
Fourth - BFGMiner.
Users can customize it at their discretion. It has a number of functions that allow you to overclock equipment and at the same time monitor how the fans work. Only experienced users can work with it.
In fifth place is the CGMiner program.
The original version was created exclusively for Bitcoin, but now it can mine some more coins. It does not have a graphics processor, and it is compatible with many models of asics.
Program MultiMiner is in the sixth place. It can be used for Bitcoin mining and several dozen cryptocurrencies. It looks for the most current coins, but users can customize it as they wish. It does not consume many PC resources.
Bitminter ranked seventh. It has an unusual interface, it looks like a speedometer. Unlike many programs it is easy to manage and have improved stability during operation.
MinerGate is on the eighth line.
It allows you to mine not only Bitcoin, but also unknown coins. The interface is very simple and straightforward. She automatically chooses the coin that is best to mine. Users can customize it as they wish.
GUIminer is next to last. It has a simple interface, there is a large variety of settings and the statistics are shown in real time.
The tenth line of analysts gave AwesomeMiner. This program is free and it was created in order to manage a large amount of equipment. It can optimize Bitcoin production in automatic mode, it works exclusively with Windows. It is suitable for mining farms.
Using the above programs you can earn more than one coin of bitcoin or another currency, and the cost of paying for electricity will not be too big.

Hello and welcome to a new age of GabeN currency!

Why hello /pcmasterrace! Do you have time to talk about our Lord and Savior's very own cryptocoin: GabeNcoin?

What is GabenCoin?

GabenCoin is THE cryptocurrency of the master race. It was bestowed to the world on January 26, 2014 at 03:45:28 AM(Timezone unknown). It is named after our beloved and respected leader Sir Gabe Newell, bringer of source, sales, and contentment to the master race.
It is a coin that is mined using the scrypt algorithm that disburses 1000 coins per block at a target of one block every minute.
At /GabeN_coin we believe that mining cryptocurrency (magic internet money) should be fun for everyone. We keep everything light hearted and fun similar to how things are in /pcmasterrace. If you want to check us out come on down to /gaben_coin.

Why should I mine GabeNs?

Do you enjoy spreading the joy of GabeN to countless others? Do you have a graphics card in your shrine? Then you already have the equipment and the love of GabeN in your heart, so GabeNcoin is perfect for you.

How can I get started?

You can visit our wiki here for more information about how to set everything up. For beginnners, we recommend using guiminerscrypt. There are also some wonderful guides on puddleduck.net.

Where can I get real money and items for my GabeNcoin?

Come check /gaben_market , the official trading place of GabeNcoin. You are free to buy, sell or trade GabeN for goods, services, etc.

Bbbuttt... Think about the GPU's!?!?!?

We at /GabeN_coin do not condone gpu abuse and give our gpus plenty of gaming and rest in the time between mining sessions. We are a proud supporter of PETG (People for the Ethical Treatment of Graphics Cards).

How is this different from Bitcoin, Litecoin and other currencies?

Bitcoin and Litecoin use different mining algorithms. Bitcoins is currently solved extremely easily by machines called ASIC miners, which makes it no longer worthwhile for end users to mine. Bitcoin is accepted at many major retailers. We are similar to Litecoin technically speaking (we use Litecoin's scrypt algorithm), but our goal is similar to Dogecoin, in that we want to make a fun currency that people can spread around and reward other users with. We want to spread the goodwill that /pcmasterrace has and want to create a currency that reflects what GabeN does in the best way possible.

4 Bitcoin-Newbies: What I have learned about BTC in 4 months

Hi guys,
I was introduced to Bitcoins last September. I didn't know anything about that and I started studying more about that.
I also found this forum and learned A LOT from you guys, so, to thank you all and to give back, I thought about doing a small summary of what I have learned so maybe new guys can find this helpful.
I will post a lot of links from outside and to my own posts, so people with the same doubts that I had can look for the answers that I got there and maybe that may answer their question too.
I learned: In September 2012, the very first thing I learned was from this video (like many of us) :
http://youtu.be/Um63OQz3bjo and this website: http://www.weusecoins.com
My friend introduced me to my first wallet and my first pool: http://bitcoin.org/ and http://bitminter.com/
I still didn't know what I was doing.
This amazing post resolve 99% of your doubts: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=9430.0
At the end September I found out that mining as we know it (or as I just knew) was about to end thanks to the ASIC machines. I didn't know what mining was and less idea of what ASIC was. So I started reading about that and I find many companies like Butterfly Labs, Avalon and BTCFPGA (http://bitcoinmagazine.com/tag/asic/)
I learned how awesome this forum is, willing to help a new guy like me
I was still learning how to mine, so I asked in this forum about that (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=114723.msg1236829#msg1236829) and they told me about pools, mining and I ended upgrading my graphic card (you can compare the speed of mining here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison and you can calculate how many bitcoins here: http://tpbitcalc.appspot.com/)
I found out all the pools out there (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=104664.0)
In October I was looking for rigs to mine (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=114823.msg1238027#msg1238027) because I found this video: http://youtu.be/eLt8Se3vVNg
Then I didn't understand why pay fees when mining, but this forum was even greater than what I thought https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=115260.msg1242456#msg1242456
So once I learned about mining, I download GUIminer and I started mining in 3 pools at the same time (https://bitcointalk.org/?topic=3878.0)
After 40 days I mined my first bitcoin YAY! now, I wanted to know what I can do with that and I found places to buy with bitcoins like www.bitmit.net
I wanted to control my mining from my cellphone and I found Bitcare very useful (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.cryptcoins.btcare&hl=en), and also Bitcoin Wallet to have a new wallet in your phone (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.schildbach.wallet&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImRlLnNjaGlsZGJhY2gud2FsbGV0Il0).
I wanted to buy more bitcoins, didn't know where. Dwolla https://www.dwolla.com/ and Mt.Gox https://mtgox.com/ were there for me. I found out that Dwolla is a pain in the ass. I had to wait 3 weeks to verify me and 3-5 days every time to make a deposit. But besides that, it works...althought I found this today: http://codinginmysleep.com/dwolla-begins-suspensions/
People who likes bitcoins don't usually likes PayPal
I also found places where they give bitcoins away...for free! http://makebitcoinsfast.com/ and http://earnbitcoin.wikidot.com/
I was new and happy until I found what a block is and how it dropped from 50BTC to 25BTC https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Blocks and http://blockchain.info/
You can know when the new block will happen: http://bitcoinclock.com/
More companies started to use bitcoins like WordPress (http://www.forbes.com/sites/jonmatonis/2012/11/16/whats-your-bitcoin-strategy-wordpress-now-accepts-bitcoin-across-the-planet/). You can even buy a house with btc! http://bitcoinmagazine.com/where-to-spend-your-bitcoins/
Cool sites that I still don't understand like: http://cognitivemining.com/ or http://bitcoinstatus.rowit.co.uk/
The biggest wallet so far had more than 613,000 BTC and its own site (http://1dkybekt5s2gdtv7aqw6rqepavnsryhoym.com/)
You can watch how bitcoins are going higher or lower in sites like here: http://bitcoinwatch.com/ and http://bitcoin.clarkmoody.com/
That a guru of Gold and Silver, is accepting Bitcoins in his web: http://mogamboguru.blogspot.com/
They have more names than just bitcoins... Sub-units of a bitcoin such asmillibitcoins ("Millies") or microbitcoins ("Mikes"). The Bitcoin protocol uses a base unit of one hundred-millionth of a Bitcoin ("a Satoshi")

Casinos will make money....ALWAYS, any currency, any country: www.forbes.com/sites/jonmatonis/2013/01/22/bitcoin-casinos-release-2012-earnings/
There is wikipedia about bitcoins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin) and there is a wikipedia only of bitcoins: (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Main_Page)
Blogs keep growing to understand better about bitcoins: http://www.thebitcointrader.com/
I learned the hard way that if you have several wallets in your Bitcoin Wallet in your phone, it can crash and lose money. Be careful. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137785.msg1468748#msg1468748
You can have multiples wallets in your computer thanks to: https://multibit.org/
I thought a fork was for eating, but there are more https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=136802.msg1457287#msg1457287
There is no flaws in bitcoins: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=136740.msg1456910#msg1456910
Also, if you sign your account of the forum with your wallet, your nickname would be attached to it, always: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137667.msg1467500#msg1467500
You must create a SECURE wallet: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=17240.0
And that's it so far. I'm still learning but I can see how much I have learned in just 4 months. I got my wallets secured, with many bitcoins and waiting for an asic.
I hope this post can help anybody.
Thank you guys!
All the best.

Help with mining

I have never had anything to do with Bitcoins or any other coin until now - and just thought I'd give it a go with my i7 6700k and GTX 1070.
I was using GUIminer and it was showing that I was getting approximately 1GH/s, but I couldn't seem to work out how to get my payment from the pool.
Anyway, I switched over to NiceHash (while I do research) because it's much more simple - but now I am only getting a max of 150H/s. Yep, just 150. Not 150-anything, just 150.
Why the big difference between the two programs? Was GUIminer lying to me? Am I somehow under-performing on NiceHash?
For reference, I am on Windows 7 and I'm using NiceHash Miner v1.7.5.3.
Edit: I am not mining to make a profit, merely because I am interested in learning about it.

Bitcoining: a simple guide to get you started

Continuum pool is recommended over deepbit, read this post to use that instead. Instructions are virtually the same.
https://deepbit.net/
Sign up for an account. Choose proportional mode.
Download this and this and this.
First one you just extract. Second one is your mining program. Third one is your wallet where you keep track of all your bitcoins.
So you have a deepbit account, right? Well anyways after everything is extracted and installed open up your bitcoin.exe. There is a long string of text near the top in a box. That is your address. That is how you get paid and pay others. Copy that and then goto your account and paste it into the "Your bitcoin address for receiving rewards" box. Save settings.
Now go back to your account and click create worker. Set the worker's login tail to 0 and the password to anything you will remember. Leave payout as proportional and click save settings.
Open up GuiMiner. File>new other miner and navigate to where you extracted that third link(the one with 4 .exes). Select rpcminer-cuda.exe for your new other miner. Name it CUDA. In the guiminer tab for this new miner(the CUDA tab) set the server to other.
Host: pit.deepbit.net
Port: 8332
Username: [email protected]_0 you must add the _0
Password: The password of your created worker
Extra flags: Only needed for more than 1 graphics card, if this is true, read part 2
Go into guiminer and do file > save settings. Now click start mining. The number of MHash/s is completely dependent on your graphics card's power. I have 2 cards that get about 30 MH/s each. To check your mined coins go here.
Okay, so now just a bit of explaining. Your deepbit account is merely a holding place for your coins. To actually spend them you need to payout to your address. To do this goto your account and click the Payment link. You can only pay out if you have over 0.01 BTC. When you pay out it will appear in your bitcoin.exe, it takes a while the first time and every payment after that it is near instantaneous. Once it is in your bitcoin.exe congratulations, you now have bitcoins to spend. To spend them you just get the address of the person who you are sending them to then click the send button on bitcoin.exe, put in their address and the amount.
Also, goto C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin (if you're on windows7) and backup your wallet.dat file. That is your wallet. It has all of your money. Don't delete it.
Part 2, multiple graphics cards.
I have 2 graphics cards so setup took a bit more for me, if you have only 1 ignore this section.
Only a few things you need to do. Go to your deepbit account and click "create new worker". For worker login tail set it to 1. Set the password to something you will remember. Leave payment proportional. Save settings. Now go to your guiminer. In your original CUDA tab with your username as [email protected]_0 go into the extra flags and put in "-gpu=0". Now go to file>new other worker and choose the rpcminer-cuda.exe as before. Name it CUDA2. In the CUDA2 tab have the following settings.
Server: other
Host: pit.deepbit.net
Port: 8332
Username: [email protected]_1 must have the _1
Password: The password you set when you made the new worker on deepbit.
Extra flags: -gpu=1
So you end up with 2 tabs, a CUDA tab that has all the same settings except the email ends in _0 and the extra flags as -gpu=0 and a CUDA2 tab with the email ending in _1 and extra flags are -gpu=1.
File>save settings in guiminer and click start mining on both tabs.
A final piece of advice. This will use your GPU heavily, if you are gaming or anything else and notice that video is lagging go to the tray in the bottom right, find the GuiMiner icon and right click it and close it. Do not click stop mining in guiminer.exe. This always crashes my computer and will likely crash yours. Just close the program from the tray.

USB ASIC Miner 5GH/s

Hi Everyone,
Im new to mining and have been playing around with using my GPU in my home computer. Which gets a terrible hashrate, between 40-50 MH/s. I've been mining through guiminer and slushpool so far as well.
Im curious about the 5GH/s USB ASIC miners from Butterfly labs. Has anyone used one? Will the 5GH/s have a worthy return?
Also looking to get some feed back on using one of these for pool mining.
Any feedback in general on these devices would be appreciated before I send off almost $300. Even if there are better USB ASIC miners for the price.
Product in question

[Q] Is it still possible for someone with a decent GPU to mine Litecoin with a profit?

Hey guys,
So I recently started reading into the whole cryptocurrency thing, and thought I might give it a try.
Now bitcoin is obviously not an option anymore for someone with no dedicated gear for mining, but it seems Litecoin might still be.
What I have : Desktop PC with 4th gen core i5 CPU, AMD 270X GPU, and 8 GB or RAM.
Electricity in my country is fairly cheap, and I think it will not be a problem.
Is it worth it to start mining? pool or solo?
In addition - I've looked into some guides about starting and read about cgminer and guiminer. But it seems the guide was pretty outdated, so I would like to ask if there are guides you recommend for a starting miner to read, that are still relevant today.
Thanks!

mining with ATI Radeon HD 5700 series

I have been getting into the bitcoin frenzy finally and started looking into ways in which I can start out. I'm not the usual n00b since I have everything up and working. Only thing that I am having problems with are the performance issues. I have my Catalyst drivers installed and running and the Radeon is working like it should but at a lower speed than I expected from what I have read about others using this same card series. When I use guiminer with the slush pool, I get at least 80 kH/s, when mining litecoin with guiminer scrypt, I get more performance at 200 kH/s. both less than what I had expected. This is all in windows. When I give it a go in Linux with cgminer, the program doesn't even see the card, apparently it seems to be checking the usb hub instead of rhe PCI and PCI express ports. Is there a way to make cgminer look into the pci slots instead of only checking the usb ports. I can always use a USB asic miner from a company like butterfly labs but I have heard not only negative feedback about not only the performance but also the price in which they are sold for and how it's time consuming to get it to pay you back the extremely large amount of money that you spent on them in the first place. Can I get my Radeon card to mine faster in windows, and how can I get it recognized in Linux by cgminer. This is getting really frustrating, and bitcoin jobs are more competitive than actual jobs. If it's relavent, I only get internet bandwith at 2Mb/s which i think is a major contributing factor but I've been told it isn't.

Mining for bitcoin

I have tried mining for bitcoin with guiminer.. onto slush pool.. probably not effective but it's a start. It doesn't work correctly with the workers and does not process me mining the bitcoins even though everything is inputted correctly. Could anyone help troubleshoot? Or should I just switch to ethereum mining?

Low GPU hashrate?

It is the first time I look into litecoin. From what I understand, it is much like bitcoin(respected and established) only right now it's not subjected to big fluctuations and it is ASIC ignored. I tried mining with GuiMiner on weminelitecoins, but I have only around 150khash/s on my HD7750. Is this normal?

Just the weirdest, most inexplicable sht I've ever dealt with in a rig. [PC, blackscreening, semi-random]

Hi all.
I'm utterly, utterly baffled. Stumped. Bemused. Befuddled. Bamboozled. I cannot explain this. At all.
I crash on my desktop, often (but not always) while opening Chrome. Crash can be 1m after boot, or 4 hours after boot. Machine blackscreens, stops responding, doesn't send anything to the monitor or respond to scroll lock or capslock.
Fairly standard - but I do NOT crash if there's a game running. Literally can run GW2 for as long as I need to, or warframe, or Titanfall, and it's solid as a rock.
I've arranged an RMA for my GPU as it's the most recent addition to the sytem (25 Feb 2014) and it was blackscreening on wake (but with a responsive PC/keyboard and the media server was still up), but I'm stumped. I've never seen anything like this.
What causes a rig to blackscreen when browsing or opening explorer, but doesn't have ANY problems when it's running high end games at max rez?

Nuked 'em.
Wonder if I have (or hopefully had) a malware issue. GW2 is running in the background and it's still not crashed...
Ideas anyone? Am thinking about ordering a new CPU/Mobo and seeing if that fixes it - next on the list (after another crash) is going to be a W8 re-install.
OS re-installed and BIOS updated, still crashes. Definitely hardware. Definitely not RAM, definitely not storage (SSD or HDD). Crashes still independent of load - but most common when clicking on something (Firefox, Chrome or Evernote for example).
So the candicate list as far as I can work out is:
CPU (moderately likely, though stressing with linpack or OCCT or prime does not cause crashes, and it's happy while playing GW2) mobo (happy while gaming, unhappy when asked to execute a crappy little prgraom like Chrome. Weird? gotta be unlikely) PSU - Feeling like this is a likely candidate. GPU - but doesn't crash when rendering ~100 players at max res in GW2.
Soooooo.... can anyone think of a thing to test next?
Final edit: running on the onboard GPU on mah telly. Flawless, no crashes at all. I think it's the GPU, the 2D processing chip or whatever must've been borked.
Recap: new GPU, no crashes. All is now good!

Is it working?

So i recently picked up mining dogecoins and i only got 120Kash/s with CUDAminer. Though i had tried bitcoin the otherday and i used GUIMiner and had about 90Mhash/s.
So now im using GUIminer to mine dogecoins and it says it mines ad 92Mhash/s but on the pools site it says that my worker isnt mining at all.
So I was wondering if im even mining at all?
P.S sorry for bad grammar

Dogecoin is my first cryptocurrency

I still regret not investing in bitcoins back when they were $1 because I felt they wouldn't amount to anything... I did the same with litecoins as well, and look at where they stand today. I can remember people giving away bitcoins and me thinking it wasn't worth getting a wallet for it.
Hindsight is 20/20, they say.
I found out about dogecoins yesterday and decided that, regardless of how silly it seems, I wasn't going to make the same mistake three times in a row. I looked up stuff on the web about mining dogecoins and litecoins and eventually figured out how to mine them. I actually wasn't expecting to be able to mine them since I'm on a laptop, but it's not been too bad... not great, but at least I'm getting some coins.
Yesterday I mined DOGE off and on and managed to acquire nearly 5k in a few hours, and 1k in a little less than an hour. Today, unfortunately, it's getting more difficult, and after about 8 hours of mining, I have accumulated just over 4k coins (a couple of hundred were orphaned (whatever that means)). I got home from dinner tonight and saw that someone sent 1,337 DOGE to my Reddit address, so if you're reading this and sent me that, I thank you.
My experience in this one day of mining dogecoins has been a learning one. It's fun, and while I definitely don't have a good enough machine to make millions, the rewards per block right now at least makes it feel worthwhile (100+ coins per block is what I'm usually getting). If you count all of the coins I've made and calculate their approximate worth, I've made about $1 in 24 hours doing nothing but read Reddit posts and stare at the doge pool charts. Not bad if you ask me.
According to GUIMiner, I'm getting 26 kH/s, though the pool I'm in currently says 21 kH/s. It fluctuates between 15 kH/s and 45 kH/s on the pool site, so I don't know if I should believe that or GUIMiner.
But yeah, I just wanted to say that mining DOGE has been an awesome experience thus far. It's gotten me more interested in cryptocurrencies and now I'm considering the possibility of getting into more serious mining. The longer I wait, the more difficult I assume it'll become to get a decent payout, though, and I'm not going to be getting a better machine anytime soon... such dilemma
Anyone else start with dogecoin? Or perhaps you already have experience mining and just decided to sink your teeth into some doge.

I'm happy I found you Bitcoin. I am now using it to donate to charity for free.

UPDATE
A user as asked me if how to contribute to working towards my 1BTC goal. While I believe this is a great idea as many people can use the same worker, and anyone can tribute even the smallest to make a bigger difference, I had not planned to open by BTC Guild worker publicly. And you may say I could just take the bitcoins for myself, etc. I don't have any proof to show you so if you like to help with reaching my 1 BTC, you are doing so at your own risk. I just want to make it clear since this is NOT my focus and I will explain below how you can do just exactly what I'm doing without ever having me involved. So here is my attempt at helping you set it up.
If you are new to bitcoin, usually you create a Wallet. This is simply where you store your bitcoins. However, we do not need a wallet since all the bitcoins you earn will be diverted directly to the charity site, which makes setting up so much easier.
SET UP & INSTALLATION
  1. Download and Run bitcoin miner. I use GUIMiner the most popular and this is simple the software that will do the actual mining and essentially all you need. Here is the official link http://guiminer.org
  2. Select BTC GUILD (any) as your server and Username: BTCharity_1. (Password is anything you set)
  3. Hit Start Mining and that's it, let it run it the background as you collect. You will see it working when you see a hash rate showing with shares numbers slowly rising.
Note: If you would like to earn bitcoins to donate for yourself seperately, you need to first create a new account on BTC guild. Then create a worker with your account to replace mine. Next thing you need to do is get a address from the donation site http://www.thesethgroup.org/#!donate-bitcoin/coo5 Copy that address in your Settings>Bitcoin Wallet address and set an automatic payout (lowest is 0.01). Now you are all set, when you've collected enough bitcoins on your own, and once it reaches your payout threshlevel, it will automatically send the bitcoins to the charity.
Hope this helps.
Dear reddit,
I have never heard of bitcoins until recently like many other individuals, I took a interest after the big BTC value rise and I saw it on reddit. I have been reading everything about bitcoins for the last few days. What really inspired me what how progressive it has become and how much more wildly common it is to use. I have never tried to mine for actual bitcoins until this reddit post got to me.
http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/1bjmh6/nonprofit_cancer_researchers_accepting_bitcoin_to/
Charity organizations are beginning to accept bitcoins! This one was particularly relevant to me since two of my loved family members are diagnosed with cancer, my aunt and my uncle from dad's side, they are pro cannabis also.
So basically as of now, I'm using my desktop to "mine" bitcones, I average about 200Mh/s. This is not much at all and you should not expect to make any real money. However I have set up a way to mine bitcoins with a pool, on my computer which is usually on all the time and added a donation link key from the Cancer Reasarch site above to the BTC guild account and have it set to automatic payout when it reaches 1 bitcoin.
I have never donated before in my life even though I have always wanted to, but I am just poor and have no money, I find this a heartwarming way to now I'm contributing to something.
I find this an amazing way to both contribute to the bitcoin cause and to fight cancer, to donate to charity essentially for free if you don't have the money to spare. I encourage you to do the same.
If you have any questions about doing something similar I will try to help! You can essentially set this up in less than 5 minutes and start contributing even if you don't know much about bitcoins yet. You can learn as you go.

Anyone using linux to mine bitcoin?

My setup is an AMD PhenomII 965 black edition with 12gb DDR3 1333 and an Nvidia GTX460 1gb graphics card. I run Ubuntu 12.04
My roommate's setup is an AMD PhenomII 945 Black edition with 4gb DDR2 800 and an Nvidia GTX 460 1gb graphics card. He runs Windows 7
Using DiabloMiner on my Ubuntu 12.04 setup, I get around 50 Mhash and my computer becomes unusable during this time.
When my roommate uses GUIminer on his Windows 7 setup, he gets around 70 Mhash and can still browse the web and do other non-graphics intensive tasks.
Is this simply a limitation of Nvidia drivers on Linux, or is there something I'm missing? Any advice from other Linux using bitcoin miners out there would be of great help.
EDIT:

I am aware that AMD is better than Nvidia for mining BTC. My question was whether or not my setup was being limited by some combination of my OS/Drivers/Mining Tool. I am also welcoming any advice that isn't buy an AMD card, for improving my current setup.

Weird issue mining?

Hi everybody, newbie miner here with a weird situation. Wondering if anyone can help sort this out. I recently started using my desktop rig to mine during the nights or when I'm at work or class, figuring if it only ever makes a couple bitcoins, it will still just be extra money. I end up averaging around 320 Mh/s from a Radeon 6950, one with no unlocked shaders or any modifications (for whatever reason, the shaders would not unlock despite multiple attempts).
Regardless of that, I've started noticing weird patterns over the last week or so. Some night I'll leave Guiminer on over night and end up only getting somewhere around 130 accepted hashes and maybe a couple rejected ones. Then, other nights, I'll leave guiminer up and end up waking up to 2000+ accepted hashes over the same amount of time. That seems like an incredibly large discepency and I have no idea what is causing such a change. It seems to happen randomly, and, if I have time to monitor the program, I can usually force it to quit and restart a couple of times and get a more productive night going.
My question is, what is causing this? And what can I do to fix it? I have no idea what other information to provide along-side this but I'd be really grateful for any advice or even just for someone to tell me what would be pertinent information. Thanks so much for your time!
tl;dr: My range of accepted hashes over a night of mining is either around 180 or 2000+, with no middle ground. I'm trying to figure out whats wrong and hopefully not waste any more night getting only 180 accepted hashes.

Started mining yesterday, I have a question.

Hey so after all the talk about bitcoin I started mining yesterday on my laptop since that's the only thing I have. I'm mining on 2 GPU's at 26Mhash/s each (52 total), and in slush's pool on guiminer . After a day I only got 1,000 accepted shares. But question is, do I have any chance of mining bitcoin with such low Mhash and at least making $50 per month or not? Also would switching to a smaller mining pool increase my chances of obtaining some bitcoin? I don't have money for a new rig so using my old lenovo y500.Thanks in advance, if i broke any rules posting this please say so and I will remove this.
