Don't download the blockchain using geth --rpc command. That's the full blockchain, and it's super heavy like in the hundreds of Gigabytes. Instead use the command geth --fast --cache=2048 . It's a trimmed version of the blockchain, something like 15GB, it's probably enough for the normal miner. If you already started downloading the full version then you need to either delete the blockchain (where you had your full version) folder or rename the folder if you want to get the fast version, the full version ins't compatble with the fast, it's one or the other. The blockchain folder is found on C:\\Users\(youruser)\AppDatta\Roaming\Ethereum\Geth\ . Also you can use mist or the wallet program to see the progress percentage of the blockchain download, it's the first thing that appears when you open them. Hope this helps.

Please donate because I can not buy ETH from my country (Uruguay) and a GPU is more than $ 1000 because we have an import duty of 60%. Thanks a lot 0x579e7Bded157E4A2fA689F906c37303CF67B9312

I have a dual gpu laptop with both intel intergrated and Nvidia gtx 1050. My question is how do i specify the ethminer to use only the nvidia because it uses the intel. Also changing the nvidia settings and changing the app settings usage doesn't seem to have any effect, im guessing because a bat file isn't considered an application.

I have downloaded "ethminer-0.9.41-genoil-1.1.7" from github and unpacked it. But when I double click "ethminer.exe" it does not start to install. The only thing happening, after double cklicking "ethminer.exe", is that a command window appears for a fraction of a second and disappears before I can read anything in the command window. My OS is Windows 10 pro Any suggestions how that error can be fixed are very welcome. Regards Alex

Do I need static IP adreses for mining? I plan to use draftpool. If everything is going as planed than I'll get 1500EUR worth of parts and it will pay off in 2 to 10 month depending on price. Expect it to fall this month along bitcoin.

this is not a proper tutorial. do I have to create a new account every time I start geth ? because this is what it seems I am doing following this tutorial ? Am I downloading the whole blockchain again every time I do this ? How do I open my existing address and blockchain, what is the command ? Is it still "geth account new" or something else ?

If you have money to invest, I recommend buying Ethereum instead of mining. You can buy it here: https://cex.io/r/0/up105687549/0/ After this article came out, it's value increased 15 times! It's a sure bet. http://fortune.com/2017/02/28/ethereum-jpmorgan-microsoft-alliance/ ETH will be bigger than Bitcoin!

How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
