What is Ethereum?
Ethereum is an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed computing platform featuring smart contract (scripting) functionality. It provides a decentralized virtual machine, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).
So I have been mining Ethereum for some time now. I mine it on a Cloud site and I mine it with my GPU. Depending on what suits you. I think they both work. I prefer cloud mining as less cost and easier to mine but more risk as sites can go down. But I have found a Site I use and Recommend as I have used them for a year and half with no faults and no issues. I recommend HASHFLARE.
What is Hash Flare?
HOW IT WORKS?
So That is Cloud mining. But you can also Mine With your GPU.
What Is GPU Mining?
A Bitcoin mining module is usually a worker as assigned in the Bitcoin miningsoftware. For example, four GPUs are plugged into the motherboard constituting the Bitcoin mining hardware. Then the Bitcoin mining software identifies each GPU as a unique worker.
So this example is about Bitcoin but I am using my GPU to mine Ethereum which is more profitable. As it works better with a GPU processor. So in order to mine with your GPU.
You will need to mine with a pool or solo. I prefer Pool mining which this is about if you want to solo mine you will need to research on youtube.
The pool I am mining with is called ethereum.miningpoolhub.com
Its easy to join its free. Get your self setup then all you need is a good GPU. and you willl need a GPU miner. Ether for Nivida or Radeon. What ever you have you need one. I use QTminer or Claymore miner.
There are many videos on how to get setup I have made a video on my proof of progress and how I use qtminer to mine I will post it below this to show you how to get started.
Well i hope this will help you get started and to the future of ethereum.
If you need a wallet then I recommend Coinpayments as it supports 50+ coins. And works well easy to setup multiple wallets Free to join.
Whattomine.com is a great Site that can assist you in choosing the right coin that suits your setup.
