Is "free" mining profitable.
« on: November 21, 2018, 11:00:14 AM »
I'm spending a lot of time on public WiFi as part of my Roamer WiFi project, and I'm tempted to try running a small miner as a background task. The difficulty in Bitcoin mining would tend to rule that out, but there may be a possible profit from scrypt minning using USB miners. Solo mining for Litecoin looks to be a bit of a gamble, but with free electicity and net connections, it may be worth the experiment. It wouls also be interesting to try a variety of coins based on scrypt algorithms as well.
