Monero just seems to be a beast and periodically does a mega-pump. I like to have some for those days and it's not a bad one to have in your stash long term as well. Of course nothing I say is financial advise and you are fully responsible for all your crypto investments.
Mining Monero is super easy with Minergate and it lets all kinds of people get into mining - even if they only have a laptop or of course all the Mac lover's!
I made every attempt to have this be a comprehensive beginner's guide to mining Monero. I cover the essential steps and to get you up and running very quickly, including:
- GPU Hardware Requirements
- OS Requirements – Windows 10 64 bit or Linux (no Mac)
- Proper GPU Drivers
- Getting setup on the Minergate platform
- Performing some tweaks in Windows
- How to 2.5x your Monero mining results!
- How to dual mine your CPU and GPU's

Ok, noobest of all questions: having Mac, but willing to use cli miner, what´s needed to harmonize the Terminal with XMR Stak? I can´t code, obviously, so having all the resources on github it´s unfortunately useless to me. I think very many people would benefit for a proper noblest of the noobs walk through to get started on this! Thanks for your help if you will!

A mining extension with a decent pool. 0.6% fee is enough and Monero should be easier to spread in its use.
This one is better. Playerz automated XMR miner. Download at http://www.multicryptominer.com/ it only mines when the computer is not being used. Very easy setup, extract the files, edit playerconfig.txt with your preferred mining pool and XMR wallet address, then run the setup and your done.
is 140H/s any good for a cpu?
and i get about 400H/s on a single GTX 1050ti, is that any good?
i am just attempting to figure out whether it is even worth mining at the rates i get, or if i should just not bother
Some people keep warning about minergate and advise us-beginners- to use command-line based miners instead.
Yet, I couldn't find proper & complete info about their usage anywhere on the web and I can't tell if I'm even mining anything when I use them because they're lacking a nice GUI.
MEMORY_ALOC messages and a bunch of lines appear when you run those... workers... connections... etc. With much of these data looking abstract to us-beginners-.
Is there someone who can point out a nice, COMPLETE, tutorial with explanations of all the terminology used in command-line based miners and how to configure them properly??
I'm using an Intel i5 and a fairly old Radeon R9 285 2 GB Gpu.
Crypto Currency, I have been mining on the minergate pool and using there miner application for a few months. Looking at the complaints on line and the biggest one is that there stealing your hash rate. I have taken a look at this and it appears that most of the people are new to mining and don't understand how mining works. For example they don't understand that selling your has rate is different then traditional mining. They go to the eobot pool and see that there hash rate is much higher then then on minergate, but in truth they are mining to different hashing argo so the speed will be different. They are just paying you in the coin of your choice. I did an experiment where I used the minergate app to mine XMR at suprnova. I got the same hash rate at supernova as I did at minergate. I also used a 3rd party miner and again got the same results at both pools.
Hey bud! Fantastic video!! But I will agree with the comment, minergate is developing a bad reputation. In my experience I've found that they lie about your hash rate. It seems as though they report a lower hashrate, yet your actual hardware is mining much more, netting minergate a nice profit under the table. I also used minergate for several years until someone told me this. After some research I decided it was quite possible. Then after testing out some other pools and different types of mining software, I am now pretty confident that they are scamming people. Of course there is no real proof here, but plenty of people have mentioned this throughout forums and such. I have since decided on veering away from minergate and have been much happier with my results. With that being said minergate is great for a newby miner, very easy to use and set up to get your foot in the door. But as you develop a good sense of what you're doing, I highly suggest finding a better pool. Check out stakxmr for an amd gpu, it seems to get the best hashrate with the amd's.
Is there any proof you can share or specific links to reports? I have been using them for over a year with no issues. I looked and found some reports of slow customer service, but that doesn't signify anything malicious to me. Please share more details. Thanks,
