How to Start Mining Bitcoins  

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
This will be an in-depth guide on how to mine Bitcoins. I feel the other guide is lacking and not very noob friendly. This guide will be step by step with pictures. My suggestion is have the other Bitcoin thread changed to "Bitcoin Discussion Thread" to keep this section of the forum clean thumb.gif

Since mining all coins is basicly the same.

Some people don't want to wade through discussion of Bitcoins to find stuff on Litecoins. And it's not all the same. There are different programs for Bitcoins and Litecoins, different settings, different units of hashing etc etc the list goes on and on. It keeps the discussion threads less cluttered if you have dedicated to one type of currency.

Mine is for all..

And mining them all is almost all the same...

You can mine all coins with CG miner...

All information is in the OP.. And questions can be asked....

Making threads for everything is just a mess.

On no other computer forum is there a thread for every type of coin.. they have them all in one.

Not everyone is interested in Bitcoins, don't you understand that? I, for one, don't want to have to dig through a thread discussing all the various different coins for Litecoins. I think there should be four threads:

-Bitcoins
-Litecoins
-Feathercoins
-All other alt currencies

It's not all about bit coins it is about all coins.

More importantly feather coin is a bad investment.

Right now the bi players are digs coin world coin etc.
