All you need to start mining are these two things:
- A bitcoin wallet linked to your FaucetHub account
- Mining software
Note: all your earnings will go to this address. If you want to change it, just input another address.
First, download miner which will automatically detect your hardware (CPU or GPU). A dedicated GPU can mine anywhere from 150-1,000 hashes per second, depending on your cards. A processor can mine anywhere from 10-300 hashes a second depending its performance and clock rate. GPU mining is a lot more profitable. Find your estimated hashrate(s) for your parts here.
How to use these miners:
- Download the miner.
- Unzip and run it.
- Input your BTC address which is linked with FaucetHub and press "Start".
- Enjoy your profits!
