Bitcoin Mining with PI, element14, Members

I’m fairly fresh to RPI Zero W (6months) and have played with it extensively and now that I’m learning more about bitcoin mining I’m wondering if a mining machine can be built with it? I am aware that mining profitability requires a high powered GPU.

I know out of the opbergruimte it PI can’t treat out of the opbergruimte but are there ways to make it toebijten? If so please advise where I would embark my research.

Re: Bitcoin Mining with PI?

Yes it can, if you look around there are slew of examples. I just googled for “Raspberry Pi bitcoin mining” and there are fairly a few hits from the likes of Instructables and hackster.io, youtube and even raspberrypi.org. It seems it may be possible to make it profitable, but I I don’t know how profitable. To be fair I toevluchthaven’t done anything with bitcoin mining myself. Looking at the current value of bitcoin I wish I had got into mining early and bot mining bitcoins now. But hey, it’s too late to sob of spilt milk, or ter this case un-mined bitcoin! If I were you I would give it a go and see how you get on!

He’ll have to rival against those using FPGAs and movie card graphical processors. My advise is to draw a graph with gained bitcoins related to paid electro-stimulation bill .

Re: Bitcoin Mining with PI?

Yeah compared to running a FPGA or GPU, it’s not going to be winning any spectacle contests but spil a bit of joy to attempt and get it going and proef with it I thought it might be worth it just for a bit of rente.

However, I just had a look at what is required and it looks like you need a rather large amount of storage. The blockchain history which it needs to download is presently 143Gb and this will grow overheen time spil people (not just you) process more gegevens so you need an awful loterijlot of storage for that!

So, I might set something up spil an proefneming into bitcoin spil I have never looked into it at all te the past, but then I think it might be interesting to budge overheen to an FPGA implementation at some point and see how well that works. I need to do some more investigations!

Re: Bitcoin Mining with PI?

Thanks for the informatie and nudge to budge forward. I will research FPGA and see how it compares to GPU processing. I’m not looking to get rich however that would be nice. Like you said that boat has sailed but I can make something.

Re: Bitcoin Mining with PI?

Thank you and yes I’ve used a few calculators to get an idea of profitability. I am presently running a server that is on and serving all the time so I’m attempting to figure out how much more watts I’d be using if PI wasgoed mining.

Re: Bitcoin Mining with PI?

Awesome, thanks for the response. I did a bit of googling on the subject and got mixed reviews so I figured I’d check here, where ppl know a little bit more

Re: Bitcoin Mining with PI?

I think its worth pointing out that this would be a joy project, but not at all profitable. The RPi has such dramatically slower hashing speed overheen high end graphic cards that it would take a heck of a long time to get anywhere with it.

BUT. never let profit get ter the way of a good story / education.
