Hmm, well lets say that paying electricty isnt a concern. It will be paid off.

With 4 poopy laptops and my current rig, it will be a good nice money gain?

I think they said its $9 a Bitcoin right now?


With the rate it's going with the recent surge of users in the last few weeks even with 4 laptops and your rig it would take over a year to make 1 bitcoin. The time of making money on it has passed. It's the end of the fad now and the crash is just around the corner.


They said that when it was $140.

Will mining bitcoins slow down my internet network btw? Like should I connected everything to the internet router with ethernet cables and not wirelessly?

Do you understand how Mining bitcoins works? And why it becomes less feasible as time passes?

I know theres a limit on how many bit coins can be found a day and the value awarded is halved every 4 years.

Out of my 5 computers set up, only 3 are able to mine. The other 2 laptops from 2008 said they can only CPU mine and they still havent found anything :(.
