    Hi All Members and Mods,

    Recently while searching for ways to earn online, I came to know about bitcoins, there are few sites which gives away bitcoins for clicking ads and playing games, that is one way to earn bitcoins an I am earning though it.

    Another way is by mining bitcoins, now this one is the tricky part (I Think)
    If you want to mine solo then you would require hardware which would cost you much, for this reason people are joining pools and mining, you get a share when ever a block is found - there are many odd and even chances of finding a block because to find a block is like solving a puzzle.

    Now these sites requires us to run a mining client in our pc (WIN, MAC, LINUX, UBUNTU) mostly compatible with all the OS and also requires Java to be installed.

    The Problem: Since this client requires JDK SE 7 or 8 version, which are mostly pre blocked by browsers like Firefox, IE, Chrome (I tried in this three), hence it would not allow me to run the client and mine bitcoins

    My Question: If any one of you have been mining bitcoins using a faucet of pool, then let me know (I have been trying bitcoinplus and bitminter) pools, so if anyone has specifically used it, then pls let me know on how to start their clients and let my computer run the application (java applet) these sites try to install and run.

    Bitcoin mining is pointless with a normal computer, you are spending more resources than what you are making, and it might fry your gpu if you have one so be careful...

    Oh yes you are right, GPU might get fried, a little tweak in the h/w is surely required, when you are in a pool, then you can think of making little and keep your break even intact - but that not the answer I am looking for mate. Can you guide me on the HOW TO thing I have asked in my post, Thanks

    I would suggest you look into how the difficulty effects how much BTC you will see from mining. Bitcoin has been overrun by ASIC chipsets that are capable of mining over 1,000 times faster than the best GPU, while barely using the same amount of power. You're not going to tweak anything to change that honestly. You really need to read up a little more on what it is you're trying to do. You shouldn't have to enable any sort of java applet in your browser to mine with a GPU either, at least I've never heard of any. You run them from command line or with a batch file usually. Some of them have GUI's that provide you with an iface to watch your stats, but it's not really any different. If you're trying to mine Bitcoin through some website you'd be insane. Lol. It'd take you like a year probably just to get like 0.001 BTC. Your best bet would be to read up on Scrypt and Scrypt-N coins. Mine some of them, then use an exchange to trade them in for BTC.

    You can use this site here https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison to figure out what kind of hashrate you can expect from whatever equipment you plan to use. Then you can use this site here http://www.coinwarz.com/calculators/bitcoin-mining-calculator and you can calculate how much BTC you'll be able to mine per day/week/month. I think that if you do the research you'll see that no one is trying to rain on your parade, but rather give you a friendly heads up that it's a little too late, and a huge waste of time, to try and mine Bitcoin without an ASIC. Even the 1st generation ASIC's are becoming obsolete now because the technology is advancing so rapidly that the hashrates that were considered "fast" 6 months ago are now too slow to even turn enough of a profit to break even in a reasonable amount of time (less than a decade lol).

    Yes, I went through those sites that you have furnished and it seems that mining is not my cup of Tea, since it would require specific ASIC hardware cards, and at the end of the day if I am in a pool then I would just get minute share of the complete block found, hence am happy with the sites are giving away Bitcoins to play games or surf ads

    Thanks man...

    Hey LukesDad - I cannot give away the links here, hence am sending you a PM, do check your PM for the links ...

    your way too late for this.
    I done a bit of mining recently - had a butterfly labs miner that was running at about 10 gh/s. its totally useless now - more than useless as mining is so hard - even when you are part of a pool.

    I think to mine successfully now you need minimum of 200gh/s power, and if you want that I think the only way is to go on waiting list with butterfly labs for their new kit - which will probably also be useless by the time you get to the top.

    thanks man - I did read about butterfly labs as well, but after all research and the replies I got from all members I think am better off not mining but rather earning small satoshi by generating bitcoins from playing games and surfing ads, a little hard work and pays small but ok for a starter

    Buy USB asic chips, mine easier currencies, and trade them for whatever coins you want.

    Mine easier currencies - do you mean dodge coins and lite coins along with feather coins, well the wallet I have does not supports them and I think it is simple to stay with the mother currency which is Bitcoins

    Yes, very true, after a little research I did I found out that mining from a normal computer (CPU) is not at all feasible and hence lot of other hardware are required to mine, and to be true this hardware cost from that of being 299$ to that of $10000+

    Moreover, you need to know some codes as well, for at times you need to tweak the commnad line of the client with which you are mining ..

    the coding part is easy, you can look up tutorials on youtube on how to do it. It's usually one line of a simple command that goes something like /mining_proxy.py -o http:// miningwebsite -p 8332

    thanks for the tutorial links friend, that was quiet a help, but recently while doing all this research on how to mine bitcoins effectively, I found out that some companies are selling contracts for mining

    These companies generally have servers and required hardware for mining and they sell hash rate, one can buy as many has rate from them and earn BTC by virtual mining (since they would be mining) it is like investing and getting paid kinda thing

    Are these safe
    Am specifically talking about PB Mining, they are also listed in ebay as bitcoin hardware seller, they sell rigs and asic cards
