Although personal mining is very rare today, there are people who want to do it by themselves. The reason why most people avoid it is that of the high costs. If you still want to do it though, you will need a specialized hardware designed for mining purposes only. Of course, they are very expensive to buy. If you have access to cheap electricity and high-speed network connection you can actually do it yourself. Just make sure you calculate if the expenses are worth it. Here is what you need to do before you start mining.
Choose A Hardware
First, you will need an ASIC miner that can cost somewhere between $1.000 up to more than $5.000 depending on the brand and quality you get. You could use an already used hardware but keep in mind that hardware like these burns out quickly.
Choose A Mining Pool
When you finish setting up your hardware, you need to decide if you want to mine Bitcoin alone or as a part of a group. Being part of a pool increases the chances of a lower but regular rewards depending on how much you contribute. It’s is probably for the best to be a part of a team than to carry the risks and losses alone.
You will also need the right software for the job. Your software should be linked directly to your hardware and your wallet. Make sure to get good, credible software. Install it and connect your miner to your pc and start mining.
it’s Not Over Yet
Once you start, it’s very important that you keep up with the numbers and all the necessary data so you make sure you are making profits.
