Custom Cryptomining PCs
Our techs can spec out a custom PC for your preferred currency or recommend a good build and currency for your price range. Whether you’re looking to mine Bitcoin with custom ASICs, build a multi-algorithm rig that autonomously finds and mines the most profitable coins of the day, or just want to try mining Ether with the most cost-efficient set-up possible, iNET’s PC experts have you covered with durable hardware and expert software set-up. We can even give you a few pointers on how to mine crypto because we do it too.
As the mining industry expands, there are now hundreds of active cryptocurrencies. We can provide computers that are customized for any type of cryptocurrency, including:
How to mine Bitcoin & Ethereum.
1. Get a cryptocurrency mining PC.
To start mining, you need a mining rig. In the early days of crypto mining, you could use an ordinary PC to mine. But today, those machines will gain so little Bitcoin over such a long period of time that it isn't even worth it.
These days, special hardware called ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) is used to mine Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies based on the same algorithm. An ASIC miner will mine Bitcoin faster and use less energy doing so. The highest performance machines can solve as many as 14 terahashes per second (meaning it does 1012 attempts to solve 1 block per second), and mines constantly.
We have our very own crypto mining PCs on-site here at iNET-PC. We know how to build them and set them up as desired. If you have any questions about cyrptomining or cryptomining PCs, click the button below and ask one of our expert techs. Why are iNET-PC crypto-miner PCs better?
2. Get a Bitcoin/Ethereum wallet.
Setting up a Bitcoin wallet is critical. This is where all your mined Bitcoins will be received, and where you can sell, trade, and manipulate them. Your Bitcoin wallet is also where you can manage your Bitcoin addresses.
Each Bitcoin address has a public and a private key to match. The public key is for receiving Bitcoin - if you want to receive Bitcoin from someone, you have to give them your public key. The private key is used to send Bitcoins. If you lose your private key, you lose your Bitcoins at that address forever.
There's a variety of wallets to choose from, but we recommend a software wallet for beginner miners. It's secure, easy to manage, and good for frequent manipulation of mined cryptocurrencies.
3. Join a Bitcoin/Ethereum mining pool.
Even the most powerful ASIC miners will have a difficult time mining Bitcoin today. A single crypto mining PC won't be able to keep up with some of the massive mining farms all over the world. The best solution: cooperate with other crypto miners in a "mining pool."
In a mining pool, miners offer their computing power to the group. When Bitcoins are mined, the profit or stake is divided among members according to the computing power they provide. This means the income for you will be lower, but it will come regularly.
Be sure to research mining pools before picking one to join. There will often be a fee to join (typically 0-2% of the received reward). When you pick a mining pool, register on its website, and set up your account. You will get a worker ID for your Bitcoin miner soon afterward.
4. Get a cryptomining software for your PC.
With the mining hardware, wallet, and mining pool all figured out, next you'll need a crypto mining client to run on your computer. This client is what connects you to the Blockchain and Bitcoin network. Your mining software will provide your miner work, collect results, and add info to the Blockchain. Mining programs will also record stats about your mining PC like temperature, hash rate, average mining speed, etc.
Based on your preferred cryptocurrency and mining method, we can recommend the right software. Some popular cryptomining computer softwares include:
- Claymore's Dual Ethereum Miner
Some mining pools will have their own software. If not, there are a lot of free mining software to choose from - all with their own pros and cons. We recommend using a mining software that mines multiple cryptocurrencies and automatically picks which algorithm to mine based on which is most profitable at any given moment.
5. Start mining Bitcoin or Ethereum.
Plug-in your mining PC, install the software, fill in your wallet and mining pool information, choose a device, then start mining. Crypto values change on a daily basis. We recommend you pay close attention to crypto news and trends!
