    I don't know much about mining coins. I did it a few years ago when bitcoin first started and then some bitcoins got stolen off me via a java exploit. Anyway, I wanted to get into mining again for fun. I decided on NOVACOINS. I want to rent a server and let it ride.

    1)Where do I rent a server for mining
    2) what are the sudo commands to install applicable software to start mining

    Thanks

    you have 4 options
    1. rent a server (like an amazon ec2)
    2. Buy from a place that offers you cloud ASICs (https://cex.io/)
    3. Buy hardware and mine from home
    4. dont mine (my favorite choice)

    about the linux commands to run, google cgminer

    Best option is to get all your cards online, start mining in your house and figure a way to get cheap electricity, place ads on CL and other venues to sell the graphics cards and start selling and buying new ones as frequently as possible. Resist the urge to sell and document your expenses, set a goal at how much ROI you want and go from there.
