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.
That's it! Download some mining software listed below and you are ready to go.
Selecting your mining software:
First, select a 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. If you do not want to download anything, that is okay too. We offer an in-browser miner. However, you will not get the best hashrate for your processor this way. A dedicated miner will yield the best results.
How to use these miners:
- Download your preferred miner and our supported configuration file.
- Unzip the miner and paste/move the provided config file into the folder you extracted the miner in.
- Run the miner.
- Enjoy your profits!
Our web miner is similar as the CPU miners listed above, but you can run it in your browser instead.
It is easier to use, but its performance is lowered.
Note: the total amount of hashes below is an approximate number. You can see your true amount of hashes submitted on your dashboard.
