I want to start mining namecoin?

Post by _d0wn » Wed Aug 20, 2014 7:45 pm

Hello,

I have r9 290x graphich card, 8gb ram memory.. etc.

I really want to start mining namecoin, to try it.

I tried to setup it looking at this topic: https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/1745-a ... th-mining/ - but i am newbie.

Is there any tutorial step-by-step how to start mine namecoin?

Thanks

Did you know that Namecoin has the highest Difficulty after Bitcoin ? It's Bitcoin's First Fork ... I am afraid the private mining time for Namecoin is over.

Sorry.

You might be better off selling the graphics card and buying hash power from cex.io
Don't buy hashpower from cex.io (or anyone else), that harms the network.

You can still mine QuarkCoin but it is hobby, not very profitable.
