Hello folks Has anyone on the forum tried out bitcoin-mining? It's basically mining for virtual currency using your GPU (preferably ATI for more efficiency). There are alot of information on the web, so read up a bit before posting irrelevant questions. http://www.bitcoin.org/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin I myself have been mining almost constantly for a week with two Ati 5770's, and so far I've earned 60$! (ca. 25BTC) If you want to get started and try it out: 1. Create an account here: https://www.mybitcoin.com/ 2. Save your address for recieving money to your account, it looks something like this: 1rYK1YzEGa59pI314159KUF2Za4jAYYTd 3. Create a second account on a mining pool, there are many to choose from (slush, deep, bitcoinpool). I reccomend deepbit; http://deepbit.net/ Login to the pool and insert your payment address. 4.Download the client. This is the GPU GUI version for ATI (nvidia works, but it's slow) https://github.com/downloads/Kiv/poclbm/guiminer-20110428.exe 5. Extract it and start guiminer.exe. Jot down the needed info in the program Server: deepbit email: email@example.com password: yourdeepbitpassword Device:  Juniper Extra flags: -v -w 128 -f 120 And let the mining begin. Wait a day, send money from deepbit pool to your account. Profit. Exchange BTC to USD via BTC->paypal service if you prefer real cash. Anything unclear?
