“ether mining guide”

There’s been a massive influx of newbies due to media hype and I hope they either die out or get smart. This isn’t a get rich quick scheme, it’s a meatgrinder and money pit for people who don’t understand crypto well enough. People who basically started learning this year about Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc have no idea how badly they can screw themselves here.
Conversely, if you are up for it, CPU mining can be done. Just type in ‘ETHMINER’ then the enter key to start the process. The building of a DAG is still required in this step after which Geth takes over communication with Ethminer.
With a Cloud Service background of more than 25 years, we have developed our own server configuration for every mining project (ETH, BTC etc) and are building miners with components purchased directly from the manufacturers (GPUs from AMD, NVIDIA etc) at large quantities for better pricing. We have optimized the build time by standardizing the configuration and the software delivery system.
1x RAM (System Memory) –  4 GB RAM – You don’t need a lot of system memory to mine ethereum effectively. 4GB is about as small as a stick of RAM comes these days, so I recommend just picking up a cheap one as long as it is DDR 4 desktop memory.
We recommended for two months straight over the summer that people that want to minimize the risks involved with investing in the cryptocurrency space should consider getting into Ethereum mining, but that it might be a bit late in the game to set up a rig considering the many unknowns in the industry. Those that got in early and have remained steadfast in keeping their rigs online since then have made really decent gains, especially if they had many rigs or GPUs to maximize their profits.
The here is that hashrate has followed (with some appreciable lag) the ETH price explosion, which began in late January 2016, saw some downturn in late 2016, but then exploded again in Q2 2017.  What an amazing bull run! Up to almost $400 USD from just $10 USD in a few short months.
There is an ever greater threat to mining profitability approaching in the near future: Ethereum is soon moving to a proof-of-stake model with the Casper Protocol. When this happens, something expected in 2-3 years, traditional mining will no longer work and mining rigs will become obsolete. Rigs will no longer be able to generate streams of revenue from Ethereum mining. Instead, only by locking in stake will “stakers” (as opposed to miners), be able to profit from the Ethereum Blockchain. To be a staker you will no longer need the complicated hashing power of GPUs that proof-of-work required.
In the early days of GPU mining, AMD cards were the clear winners, in terms of performance. More recent Nvidia cards (such as the Titan range) match or even exceed the performance of AMD cards. Mining performance for certain coins may be better or worse, depending on the manufacturer.
This is quite a useful list that has the information on the hash rates of many AMD and Intel CPU’s, and this list is constantly being updated. Though the list is only for the Cryptonight algorithm (or Monero) hash rates, I don’t recommend mining other algorithms on your CPU, as Monero works very well on the CPU, compared to other algorithms which heavily favor the GPU.
Open-ended contracts were previously called life-time contracts. But as the difficulty grows every day the server bought for example 2 years ago doesn’t have power to mine the bitcoin today. Actually it has but the cost of electricity spent for it makes it unprofitable. In genesis-mining.com contract is written that open-ended contracts can be cancelled when it reach the level the mining is no more profitable. It can be in 2, 3, 4 years…. Impossible to answer this question:)
You will now be prompted to create your access key aka “Key pair”. To use a virtual machine we first need an access key (keep it private!). Amazon AWS access keys consist of a public key and a private key.
Created by a former Google engineer, Litecoin is the silver to Bitcoin’s gold – it’s fast, efficient, and perfect for tiny transactions and day-to-day expenses. Litecoin uses the Scrypt algorithm, and is mined with specialized ASIC hardware. Earned Litecoin can be autotraded in the dashboard to Zcash, Dash, and many other cryptocurrencies.
Cryptocurrencies have huge potential in coming future, the present fortune is tend to be 4000 folds in next few years. Mining ethereum used to be easier than buying it; indeed, before the first ethereum exchanges arose, it wasn’t even possible to buy ethereum at all. The ethereum Computer is a step along the path towards redecentralizing mining. To do this, we’ve introduced a concept we call “buffered pool mining”, which smooths out undesirable variance in the time to mine ethereum.
The aim of bitcoin—as envisaged by Satoshi Nakamoto, its elusive creator—is to provide a way to exchange tokens of value online without having to rely on centralised intermediaries, such as banks. Instead the necessary record-keeping is decentralised into a “blockchain”, an ever-expanding ledger that holds the transaction history of all bitcoins in circulation, and lives on the thousands of machines on the bitcoin network. But if there is no central authority, who decides which transactions are valid and should be added to the blockchain? And how is it possible to ensure that the system cannot be gamed, for example by spending the same bitcoin twice? The answer is mining.
