Does cloud mining still profitable? as per other mining the return is very slow. you have to invest more to feel your earning, i came accross this hashmonster.io site and they will start this April, im planning to try this one, any two cents? i think they are worth a try because you can sell or stop your contract anytime and resell it so you could have your investment back unlike the old cloud mining where you dont have a choice but wait. i think this hashmonster.io mining is worth a try. Any idea guys?

As a Newbie, the article explains mining clearly to me. I'd recommend people to check this out.
But in the explanation to five year old child, it's a little confusing.  ??? So basically, miners have two ways to earn cryptocurrency: 1. mine blocks and contributing computer power to blockchain (every miner is solving the same mathematical problem at a time, and the first solver could gain the new releasing cryptocurrency as a reward). 2. process the transaction for users in the blockchain. Transaction fee is existing crypto currency that will pay for miners.

Lmk if there's any concept should be corrected.  8)

Nice post! Thanks for the link! I used to wonder how it works.  I guess some who are actively participating in bitcoin transactions know not much about it.  Nice summary jitenrajput by the way.

Im not sure if mining is best way to earn money, but for sure it's waste of energy. I prefer trading. Well, there are already alt coins with real value thanks to emission mechanism tied to their supply. There are innovative alt coins which are generated due to distribution of storage cloud supply (in form of computational power and disc space). I thing it will be next step in cruptocurrency development...Time will see if Im right, but project is worth to follow.

I was a miner of Bitcoin for some time but currently I thing that it's a waste of energy. I prefer trading to get money. Otherwise, Im sure soon mining will be less and less popular because there will be more coins like mentioned above Nebula Network, where emission mechanism is tied to their supply. It makes that rate of exchange is rock stable and free from btc rate turbulences.

Bitcoin mining is a computer processing in order to ensure the security and verification of all the transactions made between one user and other. These transactions are made over a decentralized network. Hope you people will get an idea about the mining.

Bitcoin mining is a technique in which external hardware (GPU) is used with the memory in terabytes in order to mine the coins. You just need to buy an external hardware from a trusted company and then attach it with your pc and wallet. It is the newest mean of earning money via generation of coins!

In my opinion mining is useless, while there are projects like mentioned decentralized storage cloud Nebula Network, where emission mechanism is tied to the supply - it's something more innovative than well known PoS or PoW. Thanks of it, rate of exchange is rock stable and independent from BitCoin, and as we know it's the main problem for investors and generally for cryptocurrencies to break into mainstream.

Up to this point I thought that at least some cryptos are still profitable to mine. But afaik monero, pkt w/e same thing as btc in the sense that they are pointless to mine.

Crypto mining is a process in which you use external harddrive to your computer in order to generate coins for yourself. You just need to buy a harddrive with the capacity of storage in terrabytes and connect it to your wallet. You can generate up to 1 BTC per month via mining!

Bitcoin mining is the process of adding transaction records to Bitcoin's public ledger of past transactions or blockchain. This ledger of past transactions is called the blockchain as it is a chain of blocks. The blockchain serves to confirm transactions to the rest of the network as having taken place. Also, if you are looking to advertise your business on bitcoin-based advertising platform then Adconity may suit your interest, as it helps advertisers and publishers to advertise their business on a crypto-based advertising platform with competitive pricing.
