Mining bitcoin for beginners
This article explains why. I have reports that this is being actively blocked by Azure. This was always intended for testing purposes not for actual production mining. Lately my colleagues have gone wild over this 'better than Blockchain' crypto currency named Ethereum Ether.
So here are my findings on how you can mine it in Azure. Like Bitcoin Ethereum is a crypto currency. This means you can make secure payments to anyone in the world, without a centralized bank to process the payment.
Because there is no single point of failure and the encrypted nature of the transactions this is a very secure form of payment. Ethereum is not only a public crypto currency, it is also offers you the possibility to create your own private chain.
It is way more than a currency. Ethereum allows you to write Smart Contract. These contracts can describe anything from a voting system or auction system to a custom payment model. Because each transaction is stored in the public or private chain, these can not be altered later. Since that moment I have always wanted to use it but never got to it until now. So, let's get started. As OS I am using Ubuntu We need to install these - check the Microsoft docs here for the latest commands to setup the drivers.
So before you start mining, you have to make the decision if you want to mine on your own or join a 'Pool'. When you join a Pool, you will be mining together with other people in the Pool on a certain block. The chance you will find a block will be higher than when you mine solo. Let me show you how to get started with pool mining.
In this example I am using a pool named 'Dwarfpool', but there are tons of others out there. The big questions obviously will be whether it was worth it, how much did I spend and how much did I make? Before answering, let me show you the possible GPU machines:. This unfortunately is not useful at all: Most miners do have a multi GPU setup, so I guess this would work, but the main question will be: Let's first look at the raw performance of each instance here; it looks to be scaling quite well.
