Mining bitcoin with the computer is possible, via the cpu or simply online, but what features must the computer have? And what about the graphics card? Which one to choose?

PC features to undermine bitcoins

So let's start from afar, what is it for?l pc to undermine properly? First of all it is necessary that the PC has a considerable processing power, which is obtainable using a GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) of those often used for videogame graphics in 3D. Note, since electricity costs have been greatly reduced, find one Decent GPU has become more difficult than ever, but not impossible.

The next step is to equip the PC with a motherboard and a power supply unit that is powerful enough to hold all the GPUs. Finally, you need a custom case that can accommodate all the GPUs you use. However, consider that the standard case can host 6, so you should have no problems.

List graphic cards undermine bitcoin

Among the most widely used graphics cards, there are the AMD Radeon RX 480 and 580, which are now almost impossible to find. The following are alternative graphics cards that could do for you:

  • GeForce GTX 1070. Pascal architecture, Cores 1920, 8 GB GDDR5 frame buffer, 1683 Mhz boost clock.
  • Radeon R9 Nano. Processor speed: 1000 MHz, 600 watts.
  • AMD Radeon RX 470. Fourth generation architecture, 2048 processor, boost clock 1206 / 926 MHz.

CPU list to undermine bitcoins

Here is a list of the three best CPUs to undermine bitcoins on your computer.

  • Intel Pentium G4400 3.3 GHz LGA1151. Intel HD 510 graphics, 350 Mhz basic graphics frequency, maximum graphics 1,00 GHz dynamic frequency.
  • Intel Core i3-6100 3.70 GHz. Intel HD 510 graphics, 350 Mhz graphics base frequency, 1,05 GHz maximum dynamic graphics frequency.
  • Intel Celeron G3900 2.8 GHz Processor. Intel HD 510 graphics, 350 Mhz basic graphics frequency, maximum graphics 950 GHz dynamic frequency.

Minare bitcoin Raspberry

Raspberry Pi is a single-board computer, or an electronic card that contains an entire computer, launched in England in the 2012.

The original purpose was to implement teaching in schools, but over the years it has also begun to be used to undermine bitcoins. The models have been updated over the years, which necessarily involved some essential computer changes.

In particular, while the original model had an 700 MHz CPU, the current one can reach 1 GHz; the GPU has gradually moved from Broadcom VideoCore IV to OpenGL ES 2.0, 1080p30 H.264 high-profile decoder and 250 MHz encoder for BCM2835 and BCM2836. 400 MHz dual core for BCM2837 (1080p60).

How to mine with Raspberry

How to undermine bitcoin with Raspberry? Following some steps we will indicate.

But before you even start, make sure you have:

  • An account on a mining pool
  • A wallet
  • A Raspberry
  • Raspbian image SD card
  • USB bitcoin miner

Once this is achieved, the next step is to install the Raspbian on the Raspberry. If you intend to use more than one bitcoin miner at the same time, you should link one USB hub, to have some more leads. The miner you need to install will be provided as a source file, which means that before you can run the program you will need to compile a binary file.

To create a program you will need some "dependencies", or additional software, or libraries necessary for compilation. To do this, while you're on the Desktop, enter these sequences:

1) sudo apt-get update

2) sudo apt-get install autoconf autogen libtool uthash-dev libjansson-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libusb-dev libncurses-dev git-core –y

Once the dependencies are installed you will be able to download and install the miner, for example BFGMiner. In the LXTerminal enter:

cd bfgminer




At this point you just have to go into a mining pool, and then you'll be ready to undermine bitcoins with Raspberry.
