How to Earn Money Mining Virtual Currency With Your Average Computer - A Full Guide

Lately I've been exploring some alternatives to the typical grind that is online work. I've always followed Bitcoin pretty closely and knew of Bitcoin mining, but I was also aware of how difficult it's become. The difficulty is so high it's not even worth trying with the average computer. However, as of late there has been an explosion of new virtual coins. There are now hundreds (if not thousands) being mined. There is debate on how much of a help or hindrance all these altcoins are to the world of virtual currency, but regardless they open up a lot of chances to earn money with your average computers unused resources.
I decided to start digging into all the altcoins and find one that was new, easy to mine, had a solid and dedicated dev team, and a solid purpose so it's less likely to die off. What I ended up with was CasinoCoin. At the time it was sitting around $0.009 USD each, and fit all of my requirements. I took my two laptops with their i3 cpu's and no gpu's (20kH/s total) and set them to work mining at MooPool.com. A couple days later around the time I hit 300 coins the price jumped up to a peak of $0.11, and my poke at mining altcoin turned into $33. Now I'm not saying this is a ton of money, but consider the fact that I was only mining at 20kH/s on CPU's. Better computers (especially those with GPU's) will mine many more CasinoCoins.
So with my recent tests a success I figured I'd share my findings and make an easy guide to mining virtual currency. This quick guide will be done for CasinoCoin over at MooPool.com since it's my coin of choice, but can be applied to any virtual currency.
GPU Guide (You can run a miner for every GPU and CPU you have)
To my knowledge the most efficient GPU miner at the moment is CudaMiner
cuda miner is a miner specifically designed for Nvidia's architecture. Nvidia's cuda cores are not well suited for alt coin mining, so cuda miner helps you to get the most of Nvidia cards. If you have an AMD GPU, cgminer is what you want to use. -zekezander
Download the correct version for your machine and extract the archive to a folder somewhere convenient.
Open up notepad and paste in the following.
cudaminer.exe -q --algo=scrypt --url=stratum+tcp://stratum.moopool.com:3333 --userpass=kirk.Reddit.gpu:Narwhal
Now save it as StartMining.bat in the miner folder and run it.
You should start seeing blocks detected, and once the pool tunes into your hashing power you can check the hash rate of your shares to get a feel for what you're capable of.
-q is for quiet mode, when turned off you will see all of your hashing. When turned on you will only see your accepted shares and their total hash rates.
Now it's time to make an account at MooPool.com so we can customize the miner.
Start by adding a worker for each device you'll have mining.
Next we customize the bat file in the following manner.
Username & Password (--userpass account.worker:password)
(If you have multiple GPU's you may need additional changes to your bat file, I'm not sure how to set this up.)
Now save it and start it up. If you did everything correctly you should see you hash rate start to rise then average out on the websites dashboard. You are now helping to break "blocks" worth 50CSC each. When the pool breaks one it is distributed fairly to everyone who helped based on the amount of work they contributed. The faster the pool mines, the quicker we all get CSC.
Lastly you need to download a personal CSC wallet HERE so you can withdraw your funds. Once you have your wallet address remember to add it to your account and enable automatic payouts.
CPU Guide
To my knowledge the most efficient CPU miner at the moment is Pooler CPU Miner
Download the correct version for your machine and extract the archive to a folder somewhere convenient.
Open up notepad and paste in the following.
minerd.exe -o stratum+tcp://stratum.moopool.com:3333 -u kirk.Reddit.cpu -p Narwhal -q
Now save it as StartMining.bat in the miner folder and run it.
You should start seeing blocks detected, and once the pool tunes into your hashing power you can check the hash rate of your shares to get a feel for what you're capable of.
-q is for quiet mode, when turned off you will see all of your hashing. When turned on you will only see your accepted shares and their total hash rates.
Now it's time to make an account at MooPool.com so we can customize the miner.
Start by adding a worker for each device you'll have mining.
Next we customize the bat file in the following manner.
Username (-u account.worker) Password (-p Password)
Now save it and start it up. If you did everything correctly you should see you hash rate start to rise then average out on the websites dashboard. You are now helping to break "blocks" worth 50CSC each. When the pool breaks one it is distributed fairly to everyone who helped based on the amount of work they contributed. The faster the pool mines, the quicker we all get CSC.
Lastly you need to download a personal CSC wallet HERE so you can withdraw your funds. Once you have your wallet address remember to add it to your account and enable automatic payouts.
Turning your CSC into USD
In order to sell your CSC you will need to use an exchange. So far Cryptsy(Ref) - Cryptsy (Non-Ref) is the only site that does CSC exchanges. When you're happy with the price sell off your CSC for BTC. Next take your BTC and send it to CoinBase(Ref) - CoinBase(Non-Ref) where you can easily sell it for USD and have it sent to your bank account.
Hope this helps some of you out, Happy Mining!
If you found this of use and would like to donate these are my wallets, or you can just mine with the sample .bat launchers for a bit :)

How To Dig For DogeCoin With Your Average Computer - A Full Guide

Hello fellow doge's! I posted this guide over at /beermoney and and it received a huge amount of attention. I figured I would modify it for the the DogeCoin pool to help you guys out! Hopefully it helps some of you get started.
-Note* This guide was written for CasinoCoin, but I'll modify the information to apply to DogeCoin.
Lately I've been exploring some alternatives to the typical grind that is online work.

Mining Instructions Made Simple

© Author - Henry - 11 April 2014. All rights reserved.
If you are interested in mining crypto currencies, here are the settings for bfgminer (3.10.0), cgminer (3.7.2), cudaminer (2013-12-01), and cpuminer (2.3.2) for Windows OS. Of course, these settings are for pool mining.
Steps: • Download and Install Wallet - Bitcoin, litecoin, dogecoin, peercoin etc. on your regular PC. • Encrypt and backup Wallet - get in the habit of backing up your wallet. • Join a mining pool of your choice. • Create pool worker at your mining pool site. • Acquire or build mining machine - pay attention to specs, power supply, graphics card etc. • Download and Install mining software - bfgminer, cgminer, etc. • Configure your mining worker - See detailed configuration below. • Mine away.
It's always easier to do the configurations below in a batch file because you could then create a shortcut for them in your startup folder. However, here are both the command line entries and the batch file entries. The timeout instruction in the batch file is used to delay the program for a number of seconds. Therefore, you can vary the time to what suits you or leave it out all together. Remember to replace the personal information portion of the commands.
Cgminer configuration - Scrypt mining dogecoin with fast-pool pool (GPU mining)
cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum.fast-pool.com:3001 -u mloverboyu.1 -p x --thread-concurrency 8192 -I 13 -g 1 -w 256 • You may vary threaded-concurrency and -I (intensity) depending on your hardware.
Batch File:
@echo off timeout /t 240 setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 cd "c:\users\harry\desktop\cgminer-3.7.2-windows" cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum.fast-pool.com:3001 -u mloverboyu.1 -p x --thread-concurrency 8192 -I 13 -g 1 -w 256
Cpuminer configuration - Scrypt mining dogecoin with dogepool pool (CPU mining)
minerd.exe --algo=scrypt --url=stratum+tcp://us.dogepool.net:2222 --userpass=mloverboyu.1:x --threads=8 • The number of threads equals the number of cores the processor has.
Batch File:
@echo off timeout /t 180 cd "c:\users\harry\desktop\pooler-cpuminer-2.3.3-win64" minerd.exe --algo=scrypt --url=stratum+tcp://us.dogepool.net:2222 --userpass=mloverboyu.1:x --threads=8
