Step 10: You need to open up another command prompt as in step 4 – so your going to get two scary looking boxes. Simply click right click on your already open command prompt in the taskbar at the bottom of the page and click on command prompt in the menu that appears. A new command prompt should open with “C:\users\username>”. This is the wrong place to look for etherminer so you need to tell it the right place to find it.
I’ve had several people ask about the NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB . Though not my first choice, this GPU can be overclocked to mine at 24.7 Mh/s while only pulling 80 watts of power.  Just like the GTX 1070 and the Rx 580, you can find this GPU conveniently sold in a six pack here, here and here for building a mining rig.
A: This guide covers using Windows 10 (make sure it’s 64 bit).  There are also various distros of Linux that can be used (not covered here).  But Windows is the easiest to configure and get up and running fast.  There is no Mac version at this time.  
Regojo and Kuhne see this as a fundamental problem – not something that free market dynamics can realistically resolve. They suggest that the barrier of entry to the ASIC market to compete with existing manufacturers is fundamentally too high to allow for open competition.
Understanding Ethereum mining requires knowing the structure of Ethereum itself. As with Bitcoin, Ethereum depends on a decentralized group of computers to process and record transactions on the network. In order to add a new block of data to the Ethereum blockchain, computers need to solve a mathematical problem called a hash. If your computer is the one that solves the current hash, you earn 5 Ether. At the time of writing, 1 Ether is worth $299.32 (but as we already mentioned, the price fluctuates a lot). So solving one of those problems earns a miner just shy of $1,500 today — and it might be worth even more tomorrow.
“But the key goal that we are trying to achieve with this fork is to build a perpetually ASIC-resistant version of Bitcoin,” said Robert Kuhne, another Bitcoin Gold contributor, in explaining the purpose of the project to Bitcoin Magazine .
But no matter what the algorithm, the mining profitability will even out to about (even below) the price of electricity eventually, and mining will be done where heat can be made use of, mostly cold places. So, for profitability, never mind, it won’t be. For decentralisation, GPU is better. What do you think?
Now that your miner is set up, you’re able to sit back and watch as your video cards gain you passive income every month in the form of Ethereum. It is important to consider any variable costs that you may incur during the mining to determine your profitability. Variable costs may be electrical costs, maintenance costs, pool fees, dev fees, exchange fees, etc.
It is probably going to take a little bit of time for you to really get synchronized with the Ethereum blockchain, but this all depends on the size of the blockchain at its current moment in the speed of your online connection. You absolutely have to wait until you are 100% synchronized before you initiate the actual mining process, or all of your work will be for naught.
At the moment, the rewards are at 12.5 Bitcoins per one block. The reward began with 50 Bitcoins per block, and it has been lowered in every four years. It came down to  25 BTC/Block in 2012, 12.5 BTC/Block in 2016, and is expected to fall at 6.25 BTC/Block in 2020. This is what miners are supposed to get ready for.
so this “long lasting ecosystem through the development of a inclusive community of entrepreneurs, developers and investors” … excludes me because I’m not an “investor” with cash upfront? or because the time I spend developing goes to… I don’t know, paying my rent?
If you are wondering if it is worth mining Ethereum you can get an idea on how much Ether (ETH) should be mined with a specific hashrate depending on what hardware you have available with a simple mining profitability calculator. All you have to enter is the hashrate you are getting (you can run ethminer in benchmark mode to see what hashrate to expect from your CPU or GPU if you have not yet started mining) and you will get information about the expected mined amount in ETH and USD. The calculator uses up to date data from etherchain’s API to get fresh information about the Network Hashrate, average Blocktime and 1 ETH price, so it should be pretty accurate with the results at the moment of time you use it. The estimated coins to be mined and their USD value are shown for a period of 1 Minute, 1 Hour, 1 Day, 1 Week and 1 Month, though the longer the period is the less accurate the estimation could be.
Once installed, your node can ‘talk’ to other nodes, connecting it to the ethereum network. In addition to mining ether, it provides an interface for deploying your own smart contracts and sending transactions using the command line.
Since we are not CPU-mining, performance isn’t determined by the CPU, the RAM or the hard drive : it just has to be working well together, with an internet connexion and reasonable performances. Low-end products will be fine. However, we should pay attention to the TDP of these components, CPU first, because additional heat / electric consumption could decrease profitability. It’s a question of average consumption. Personal tip : I’ve figured out that a 2.5′ HDD – 5400rpm – from an old netbook could draw less power than a low-end SSD !
When you first boot it up, you must have a single GPU connected to the x16 slot closest to the CPU. The initial boot up will take a few minutes. Once that’s done, you will need to change the remote and local config files. To help with this, gpuShack has a fantastic knowledge base. Of course, if you haven’t yet, then you will need to get yourself an Ethereum Wallet/ address.
Using Ethereum, you can create a contract that will hold a contributor’s money until any given date or goal is reached. Depending on the outcome, the funds will either be released to the project owners or safely returned back to the contributors. All of this is possible without requiring a centralized arbitrator, clearinghouse or having to trust anyone.
As a Ethereum Miner and Researcher, there are few essential concepts must be clarified for the purpose of mining. If you don’t care about the beauty of computing, you can skip ahead to the section of “Road to Mining”.
(8) Keep Cool and Pay Electricity Bill: We need to understand how to keep our mining profitable by using a Ethereum calculator to estimate earnings. Here is one calculator by inputing the hashrate, power consumption and power cost per kiloWatt to estimate the profit https://www.cryptocompare.com/mining/calculator/eth
The current CPU mining world is far less democratic of a process than the GPU world, in my opinion. For example, I have access to many spare computers but I don’t even bother CPU mining because friends I know spin up dozens and dozens of AWS instances. The current CPU world is dominated by fewer individuals than any real (or hype) GPU based coin. One coin had thousands mining and was literally dominated by 2-3 people getting 98% of all coins.
The thing is Ethereum is the cryptocurrency which is ASIC resistant; i.e you cannot mine it with any ASIC you will have to mine it with graphics cards. I have also inserted Amazon links as it may help you buy them.
“The way the monopoly manufacturer currently operates is abusive to its customers – individual miners – and the industry at large,” he said, referring to major Chinese ASIC producer Bitmain. “Manufacturers can produce ASICs at a tiny cost, but miners have to buy at a high price. This violates the one-CPU-one-vote ethos as described in the Bitcoin white paper, because while everyone can buy CPU at the same price, the same is not true for ASIC hardware.”
Solo mining is not entirely problem free, we have tried with a single GPU for a day and sometime along the day geth got in some kind of loop and was not sending work for new blocks, but was stuck at sending work for an older block that has already been solved. So solo mining can also give you problems and the risk there is higher, though if lucky you can make more than pool mining. A guide for solo mining Ethereum is coming…
Bei Ethereum gerät dieses Gleichgewicht langsam und sachte aber sicher ins Wanken. Die Schwierigkeit steigt schneller an als die Hashrate. Das Resultat ist, dass sich das System verlangsamt. Während bisher alle 14 Sekunden ein Block entsteht, dauert es nun schon mehr als 15. Das ist nicht viel, aber ein signifikanter Ausschlag.
I had the brilliant idea of combining 10 such 16gb cards, with not but a power supply, small ram chip for bios, and 16 gb of ram and a memory controller, all feeding into 1 FPGA “gateway” device that would send out the work, and the biggest problem I ran into there is a data transfer latency timing issue, where basically I would in theory be submitting all stale shares because, by the time I sent the signal, processed it, sent it back, then received it, then passed it on those 10+ nano seconds would cause me to end up with an effective hash rate of below 1.5 Mh/s. so for 10 cards at 16 gb at a likely cost of $750 per card, or $7500- I could end up with a whopping 240 mh/s @ 2500 watts, IE worse than a rig of Rx 480’s.
Miners come to consensus about the transaction history while preventing fraud (notably the double spending of ethers) – an interesting problem that hadn’t been solved in decentralized currencies before proof-of-work blockchains.
Your key file(s) are stored in the %APPDATA%\Ethereum directory. For a fresh Windows 10 install, that means the C:\Users\[YOUR WINDOWS USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\Ethereum\keystore folder (note that the AppData folder is hidden by default). Copy the entire keystore folder someplace safe to backup your wallet.
I am kevin and i mine some crypto coins a year ago. After one year coin’s price goes high and now i want to withdrawal some monero to my wallet. But when i try to login to my minergate account, its asking for verification code. I want to tell you guys i didn’t activated 2 step verification on my account so unable to login. and after i contact minergate support for that issue and they replay me after 4 days and give me a link to verify my account. They send me a link which deactivate after 4 hours in midnight time.
That certainly seems to be the consensus on the mining forums I’m following. /r/EtherMining is now inundated with people who lack the very basic skills needed to assemble a computer and run mining software, but are attracted to the prospect of free money. Many of those people also lack the ability to do basic arithmetic and the sense to realize that the only way they will turn a profit is if the USD value of ETH rises sharply — and that if that happens they’d be better off in any case just buying ETH now instead of blowing $2000 – 3000 on equipment.
activate above 4G if you have that option available under your motherboard, that is specially option for some motherboards , used to optimize your PC if it has 4 or more GPU’s connected, mostly Z270 motherboards have this option (h81 pro btc does not have this option, it has it already by default)
If you’re building a dedicated mining rig, then you probably want your mining rig to boot up and start mining automatically, without any user intervention. We’ll need to enable auto-login for that to be possible.
Dear juan jose, I’m experiencing a problem that showed up today, after an unwanted windows update (that I was stopping for about 3 weeks), my mining rig slowed down a 35% in hash rate. I have windows 10. Are you or anyone else you know having the same problem ?
