    The better way to mine is buying dedicated mining rigs that run on linux. GPU mining has been pretty much dead for many years already.

    still dont understand what minning actually is. makes no sense to make money from wasting electricity.
    i can hear the global warming people screaming "save the earth turn of the light in rooms your not in"
    i can hear miners screaming " to hell with global warming. lets turn up the heat!"
    now seriusly.. why is it worth anything running your gpu? what is it doing who profits from this? beside your electricity provider? is there a meaning with it?
    or is it because people think bit coin has value that it actually has value.
    im clueless to why this is a thing.

    Let me state that I have NO interest in "mining" or any crytocurrencies. But I wanted to know how the scam works. What I gathered: so with a machine that costs almost $18k, you can earn roughly $11 per day? Why don't the CC nerds get real jobs?

    I guess that's the only reason these "altcoins" exist - because people want to make money in mining them. Crypto is the biggest speculative bubble since the dot com bubble of the '90s.

    also one more thing. most people won't buy a used gpu if its been mined on for 2 reasons. one. its been ran 24/7 and 2 well they are miners and they caused the gpu crash. so why the hell would i support them by giveing them a return of their investment. Thats like telling them " hey good job on buying all those gpu and causeing a god damn shortage. here have your money back on your losses so you dont learn your lesson." people if you hate miners and what they did punish them with your WALLETS, but most miners will lie and say this card was not mined on and will try to sell it at inflated cost for example on ebay a rx 580 runs you around 200 dollars luckily i got mine that was not mined on just light gaming locally for 119 dollarson ebay . i did a bench test and a burn-in test as well and it's fine. however even if i was told it was not mined with and only lightly gamed on i know it was mined with and i was lied to. how do i know? because he had 11 others the same cards for sale as well. that is a red flag. So not only are miners lieing pieces of shit they are also Greedy pieces of shit so there is literally nothing good about these ass holes.
