In January 2016, Bitcoin had start to rise again after falling in 2014. This is when I decided to start mining some digital coins just in case Bitcoin started to go up again. Whilst my intention was to mine bitcoin I thought the returns would be better to go and mine another coin. I decided to mine Ethereum.
I used various software to mine Ethereum but eventually used MinerGate due to the fact that I could mine in the background automatically when I booted up the PC. MinerGate allowed me to mine using the GPU and CPU. Therefore, I mined Ethereum on the AMD Radeon R295x2 and Bytecoin on the Intel i7.
At the start of 2017 the portfolio value was $3000. Both Ethereum and ByteCoin prices soared in 2017 and now in mid 2017 the portfolio value stands at $100,000.
MinerGate is a GUI software for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. It is easier to use than other mining software. Normal mining software runs in the command shell and there is no GUI. Also you have to manage your own digital wallets to store your digital coins. MinerGate has your digital wallets in one place. Just sign up for an account at MinerGate and install the software. Then choose the digital currencies you would like to mine and check the box to start the software when the PC boots up. You can forget about the software whilst your coins are deposited to your wallet.
