Just got in on the Bitcoin game. Anyone mining them?

    I mine Ethereum.
    I don't know wtf I am doing.
    I don't know why I am using a 1080 Ti to do it.
    I honestly just do it to do it.

    Glad I purchased a small amount (£190) a week ago, as its almost up £100.

    My £120 is almost up to £450 too.

    Yeah, they are worthless. You better just give them all to me.:D

    How much do you get in a week of mining coin wise? I'm curious if I should start doing this.

    considering the jump in the past week I'm thinking of switching over. I'm also thinking of selling out and having done with it just because there is currently no nice way for people in the UK to get real money out.

    I got .05 btc 4 or 5 years ago when there were websites giving it out free for getting a wallet through them. No matter what, my ROI is infinite.

    What’s going on in The UK that’s preventing it?

    My issue is, my bank charges me £10 (about $13) to transfer money to coinbase which is a little bit of a kick in the teeth. I did however get my free Bitcoin Cash this week so I'm thinking of leaving that and seeing if it gets to the £12k heights of Bitcoin next year.

    I started on the first, dual mining ETH with DCR.

    So far I have made $47 off the ETH. The DCR amount is low, but it's a side hustle.
    If you have a 1070, I would go for it.
    If you have a 1080, probably not.
    If you have a 1080 Ti (like me) I would go for it, or try ZCash.

    I don't trust Bitcoin Cash. Last week trading got haulted for insider trading on Coinbase by them. They do lots of dodgy shit to try and confuse the newbs into thinking BCH is actually Bitcoin. They also pump and dump their own currency to profit. This video pretty much says everything that's wrong with Roger Ver and his Bcash scam.



    Nice! I doubt I will mine anything myself. Since the beginning of November I've made $1121.49 through the mining service I use. Pretty sweet deal.

    Edit:

    To be clear; I made $1121.49 extra in just bitcoins. I've tripled my money over a month or so.

    Sold my BTC and paid off some of my large credit card debt which felt good. Waiting to sell my BitCoin Cash and be done with it.
