brooklynzoo81: I"ll take it! Might take a life time but if you don't pay for electricity then go for it. Might as well burn out a old machine instead of throwing a old working one. Thanks

peter johnson: Hi, i followed all your steps. However, i can't get past the part about "C:\>cd Users......win32bin" it keeps on stating that "The system cannot find the path specified" Help please?

CagedAlchemist: I've been using slush but it doesn't look like I'm getting any shares at all.

lite coin: hello, great video! i have a question i am supper new on the litcoin . i want to min lite with gpu. can you help step by step.? thanks.

The420Conspiracy: can you mine other alt coin with this?

Salomon King: I have the same problem RPCMiner works fine, it's digging away on the background of my PC on average at 500/700, however refresh slush's pool.... and nothing. 

Marco Huijskes: hey howtwos11 im mining with 4 cores: 4700 khash/s my mining pool site ( says: workers not connected but also says: 7.10 MH/s Average speed in last 10 minutes rpcminer says: 2013-11-18 14:38:01 Found Hash! Sending to server: {"method":"getwork","params":["000000028419c9b7d0a4981acfc97a 3d9f96b6444de45712a237add700000003000000003fdb5e172effc10df126bc6ed687f202412a0f 80f4de5889d1a4acb5ac8ee1ce528a263a19070bfb0bd21d00000000800000000000000000000000 000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000080020000"],"id":1} Server sent: {"result":true,"error":null,"id":"1"} so is it working correctly?

howtwos101: I'm guessing it told you that on slush's pool? This is because rpcminer uses getwork, which is the old version. The new version is stratum. To fix this, just download the mining proxy from slush's website (I'll add it to the description) and run that, then in the command to run rpc miner, just change the address from api(dot)bitcoin(dot)cz to localhost, then it will mine through stratum.

jSbr0: That's what I thought, Can't get it to run on my xp machine? Not supported or do I have to do it differently

howtwos101: It's really hard to tell, I can't find any data on that processor. I'm guessing it would be around 10 MH/s, but it could be as high as 20-30 if configured properly. The best way is to test it out. There's a great chart at that I'll add to the description that shows about how many MH you should get for a unit, unfortunately it doesn't have your processor. It does have some other AMD processors that are similar, but even similar processors can have huge differences in Bitcoin mining.

howtwos101: Did you try copying and pasting the command I put in the description? If you send me a message with the command you are using, then I'll try it out on my computer and let you know if it works.

howtwos101: Just so you know, I got GPU mining working on a Mac. It had a Radeon 6750m and was mining around ~100 MH/s. I'll be making a video on it soon.

Philip Jedar: using slush's and checked, url password username are good. Time to time computer find something to hash.. But most of the time, have the error....

Anime10100: should i use the Stratum?

Kerry Butters: dual core processor

James Cain: cd / will take you straight to the root of the drive No need for cd .. x2

howtwos101: Your computer will probably be quite a bit slower, but still usable. If you want it to affect your computer less then set it to 1 core.

Anime10100: the cmd is comes up with the miner. but the slush showing im not mining nothing on my worker.account.

FLPSource: Will this work for Litecoins?

howtwos101: From what I understand, the coins would still be sent to the address that the paper wallet is. The bitcoin network doesn't care if an address is "active" (connected to a bitcoin client), it just simply sends coins where you tell it. The coins are stored are then stored at that address, which you have the private key for. I'm not too great at explaining this type of stuff, a better explanation can be found at reddit(dot)com/r/Bitcoin/comments/15t8xx/explain_offline_paper_wallets_like_im_five/

Alistair biggs: okay thanks for the help i liked and subed

HJW012: great tutorial mate! I'm on a mac and this still helped. Keep up the great videos man!

karzygijose: Hello say i want to run multiple CMD's for a single worker can i use say worker2 for 6 CMD's?
