New to the site and crypto mining in general. I have a gaming pc that sits idle while I’m sleeping/at work so figured I’d put that girl to work.
MSI B450 tomahawk mobo
Ryzen 7 2700x
Gtx 1060 6g
16gb tridentz ram
Anyways, I’m looking to turn this into a bit of a side hustle, and have been mining for about 3 days. (Full disclaimer I have no idea what I’m doing other than following some YouTube tutorials). so right now I’m mining ETH with lolminer. I’m getting about 20.5 mh/s with a memory OC via msi afterburner.
My questions are:
have any of you started a mine from a pc gaming rig and turned it into a serious stream of income for yourselves? If so is it still possible to do so in 2021? Is it a pipe dream to want to have my gaming pc pay itself into becoming a decent mining farm just from the profits it makes? Ethermine.org is saying with today’s eth value it’d pull down about $90 a month.
Thanks for the input guys. Hopefully this forum sticks with me. I’m positive this is an incredible source of knowledge.
