My Easy-Peasy Bitcoin Mining HOWTO

bitcoin - the dream vs the reality

Over on my personal blog, The Adventures of Accordion Guy in the 21st Century, I’ve posted a layperson-friendly article titled How to Mine Bitcoins for Fun and (Probably Very Little) Profit. It provides a description of what Bitcoins are and how they’re mined that should be comprehensible by non-techies, some easy-peasy instructions for turning any old Windows machine into a Bitcoin mining rig, and a quick guide to figuring out how much (or how little) money you’ll make on your mining venture.

Interesting article. I still have my bitcoin wallet filled with a couple BTCs. I used to get a decent amount with my PC’s graphics card. Unfortunately, the difficulty increased and my tiny profit became even tinier, so I stopped mining. Someone said that it’s easier to buy BTCs than to mine them, but I’m too lazy and paranoid to go to the bank and do a money transfer; PayPal does not allow the sale of virtual/digital items for money.
