Technical Questions: Mac Nodes & Servers

Hi guys, I posted this over at BitcoinBeginners but it hasn’t received a lot of useful input. I’ve read the FAQ there and searched around the web for answers, but could really use your help.
I have a dedicated 2011 MacBook Pro running High Sierra that I’d like to use in support of Bitcoin. So far, I have installed and verified GPG Suite and Bitcoin Core following instructions from bitcoin.orf. It is now synced, and I hope to add block explorer, a lightning node, and an electrum server. Once complete, I’d like to create some tutorials and guides to help others who have old Macs, since there is already a lot of good info for Windows and Linux.
I found this guide on Medium talking about Power Node Launcher, but it’s doesn’t have the same emphasis on security as the other tools I’ve setup. Before taking next steps, I’d like input from the community on the order of steps and trusted sources for installing the aforementioned programs.
If there is anything else I can do with my computer and bandwidth to help Bitcoin, please let me know. Specifically, if I am able to setup a lightning node, would it help if I stored some bitcoin on it to support transactions? Should I setup a slow simple mining program or run an older ASIC miner that is not part of a pool just to help diversify the network? Should I setup a satellite connection as Andreas suggested in one of his older videos? Thanks for your input.

From one newbie to any others who see this: Don't mine. Especially if all you got is a Macbook Pro.

I've been reading about Bitcoin for a while and found it quite fascinating. My interest started when my friend's brother mined 8 Bitcoin and apparently sold them for about $3000 each (bearing in mind I have no idea what his setup is like and how long he was mining for).
So I thought, hell yeah if all I gotta do is leave my computer on for a few days and maybe get half a bitcoin or so why not? So then I decided to educate myself on mining and how to go about it (some useful links in the "Will I earn money by mining?" thread in the sidebar).
After figuring out my computer's specifications and using various online calculators (also in that linked thread), I discovered that with my 2011 Macbook pro I'd have to be mining constantly for a year to earn the equivalent of about $0.01 USD.
I thought it was an error at first but then discovered the machines that the pros were using got up to a maximum of around 14,000,000 Mhash/s. My Macbook Pro does 16.289 Mhash/s. Not to mention the price of those machines and the cost of running them.
I learnt this all in about 1 hour and promptly decided I am not going to be a miner.

Is there anything I can do??

Before I start, a brief disclaimer: I fully accept (and expect to be) being SOL here. But I figured I’d ask anyway.
Sometime around 2011-2012, me and my buddies we’re all huddled around the bong when one buddy brings up this magical new thing called bitcoin.. yada yada yada blah blah blah I download a bitcoin miner on my laptop later that night.
About a week goes by with this thing running and voila, I have a bitcoin (or half a bitcoin maybe I really don’t remember). I had no clue where to ‘deposit’ it and every time I thought I found a place I’d do more research and it’d turn out to be a scam or something like that. The price of the damn thing was going from like $10-$200 and back down to $10 pretty much daily and do eventually I just gave up on it.
Obviously that was dumb of me. I get that. But is there any way of retrieving this coin? I was using a 2012 MacBook Pro retina. I’m still using it and have the exact same hard drive installed and everything. Does anyone have any idea what program I might have been running? It was all automated I just had to hit start or whatever. Is there anything I can do??

Bitcoin Mining on Mac

Hi, I'm just getting into this. Been wanting to get into Bitcoin for awhile and finally doing so. I've got NiceHash Miner going on my PC (Nvidia GTX 1070) and want to have it going on my MacBook Pro (late 2013 13") as well. Since I'm at work most of the day, I might as well have my computers doing stuff for me. Is there an app similar to NiceHash that lets me plug in the wallet I want the money to go to available for macOS?

BITCOIN MINING

Hi guys So I would Like to know about Bitcoin Mining, And how I can use it and The profit etc. I know that you need a miner and use computational energy to solve algorithms in a pool of bitcoin miners to successfully mine a bitcoin and share the prize. Kind of like a Boss killing in games. I have a Macbook Pro 13 inch 2015. 2.9 GHz intel Core i5 8Gb memory 1867 Mhz DDR3 Intel iris graphics 6100 1356 MB I was wondering If i could purchase a bitcoin miner and successfully profit from it. I currently have installed solar panels in my roof which saves electricity. If so what are my options for bitcoin miner with my MacBook Laptop. If not should I build a good PC (With what qualities, Ram/Graphic cards) should i build with. As well as what miner I should use. Would be nice to know how much I would make a day, and explain the process much more clearly, as I am confused on what Hash rate is. Thank you :) Also thoughts on cloud mining?

AMD Vega 64 only mining at 10Mh, but other people reporting 40-60mh... What’s wrong with my setup?

Hi everyone,
Old school miner from Bitcoin 2013 days.
Fired up the rig and put a AMD Vega 64 into a Mantiz Venus eGPU box and connected it to my Thunderbolt 1 MacBook Pro.
I used ethminer to get it going and it only pulled 10Mh in the miner.
I checked online and other people were getting 4-6x more hashes than me. How is this possible?
If it helps, the Mac is a 2011 MacBook Pro (I tried on a 2014 Regina MBP, same haha rate). I use the reference Vega 64, and ethminer in MacOS High Sierra.
Can’t seem to figure it out :(
EDIT: my Command line is ./ethminer --farm-recheck 200 -G -S us1.ethermine.org:4444 -FS us2.ethermine.org:4444 -O My.ETH.Address.mbp
Update:
It turns out mining in MacOS sucks. I loaded the Blockchain drivers from AMD, hash rate is up to 35mh now.
Thanks guys!

MacOS mining issues - IP banned - Synchronization Problems

Hello everyone,
I am new to the cryptocurrency world. I was brought in by that EverythingApplePro video on mobile mining. After watching I made a Coinbase account and bought $50 in Litecoin, Ethereum, and Bitcoin each. There was obviously a mention of Electroneum and it's low price and high potential. Thus, I decided to lean to mine for Electroneum. Currently I am a not so rich college student with only a 4 year old MacBook Pro and an iPhone 6 to his technological gain. I don't really want to mine on these products as I really can't afford to replace them. The good news is that my office has a computer that is really only used by me that I tried to mine on. Here are the computer specs. I don't exactly have slow internet with a typical speed of 50 mbps up and 8 mbps down.
I created a paper wallet successfully using the electroneum.com browser instructions. I then tried to begin mining using "electroneumd.exe" on terminal. It seemed like a really long process as I had to synchronize to the block chain of 89,000 blocks. I let it run all night and when I came back it wasn't done but I had to exit terminal to do some other things. Now when I come back my terminal looks like this. As you can see it gets stuck at 66799/86891 blocks and just stays there.
Obviously this wasn't working so I looked for an alternative method of mining. I looked and found people using MinerGate and SumoEasyMiner. Some people said MinerGate was a scam so I chose SumoEasyMiner with this setup. Although it seemed to be working there was something odd going on. As you can see I was at about 71.85 H/s, but when I would check on uspool.electroneum.com with my wallet address I was always hovering at 22-45 H/s. Now when I used the mobile miner on my phone I would typically only see a difference of a few H/s, not as drastic as on the desktop computer.
Now MY IP IS BANNED and I don't know why or what I did. After about 8 hours of mining this is my final result. I know it's not much but it's something.
If you have any advice as to how I can most efficiently continue to mine please let me know! Any mining software or help using terminal would be greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: I tried SumoEasyMiner on my laptop connected to the same wifi as the desktop and my IP is not banned. I'm at 45 H/s on SumoEasyMiner, but 12 H/s on the uspool.electroneum.com checker.

Can I use an old GPU (nVidia 9800GT) for mining?

I've been mining the last few days using CPU. I'm getting around 25-30Khs. (linux VM on 2017 Macbook Pro, limited to 3-4 cores) According to the bitcoin calculation charts, my old 9800 should be able to top that. (But thats using SHA256.) I tried ccminer, and cgminer, but no success so far. (Not finding CUDA or OpenCL compatible hardware.) . I'm just not sure if i'm missing something, or theres another miner i can use or not. (The 9800 is in a Windows machine.)
I have a feeling i'm out of luck, but I figured I'd ask.
Thanks!

mining help please..

So I am a bit limited running a macbook pro with 10.6.8. I am more confortable with DiabloMiner as I have succesfully had that mining bitcoins (didn't actually mine for long, but was able to succesfully set it up), but also have CGminer installed. I can't get either of them working correctly with doge.pool.pm

Best Sub-$500 ASIC Miner?

I'm new to bitcoin mining and have some expendable income I'd like to use to get some ASIC hardware. What are your recommendations for the best sub $500 ASIC miner.
From what I gather around this thread stay away from Butterfly Labs. Although this Ars Technica article peaked my interest regarding Butterfly Labs (as with the writer I own a Macbook Pro which also interested me).
As I said this is expendable income and I understand investments are for the long haul not the quick buck. I'd like to have a expandable system if possible as the difficulty will increase. I do plan on joining a pool.
TL;DR:
So lay it on me /BitcoinMining what is the best ASIC option to get into mining for under $500 and possibly expand/upgrade from initial investment. Thanks for all your help and look forward to your responses.

New to the Bitcoin. Have a few questions.

So after having heard about Bitcoins on-and-off for over a year, I finally decided to see what the all the hype was about. The currency look really interesting, especially how it can be generated, but because my Macbook Pro hardly has the potential for efficient Bitcoin mining, I did some research and found the ButterflyLabs 5 GH/s Bitcoin Minerfor $274 + shipping. However:
• There have been many discussions about horrible backlogs and wait-times on orders of any dedicated Bitcoin mining machine. How does this model compare? Will I be waiting months before it ships?
• I looked at some online calculators, and they said I should be able to have a net gain after about a month. Should market conditions be consistent enough to reach this timeframe?
• I like the idea of solo mining over pools. However, which is honestly better?
• Would Bitcoin mining on this hardware even be worthwhile? How skeptical should I be of Bitcoin mining in general?
Thanks in advance :)

new to mining and vertcoin

Hi all,
So I'm new to mining and after spending a day researching, I feel that vertcoin is going to be something worth spending time and effort into. To be honest, I looked at bitcoin awhile back but then was too confused and there wasn't the support available. I feel that this time around I should be able to get further ahead.
With that said, I have some questions for you all:
  1. I have a desktop and laptop. The desktop has a single R9 270X graphics card while the laptop is a MacBook Pro late 2012 version (on board video). Should I try running a miner on both?
  2. I don't use the desktop much now since the HDD recently died. I was thinking it would be easier to run off a USB after reading about SMOS Linux. Will this distro work for vertcoin?
  3. With vertcoin gaining value, are most people holding onto it for now or trading it to bitcoin after they mine it?
Thanks in advance!

I'd love to cpu mine a few nyancoin, but can't get any miners working on this old macpro....More info inside, but a bit guidance would be very appreciated

Thanks for taking the time to look at this....much appreciated.
I think the problem is that this old macbook pro has OSX 10.6 which apparently is too old for a lot of the mac-based gui miners (asteroid etc). I've currently got it hooked up to a BFL miner which has been using bitminter to generate an embarrassingly small quantity of bitcoins.
So I turn off all that shit and get scrypt miner downloaded, a pool joined, a wallet synched etc, and then it all goes to shit.
I've tried many fixes but can't make it work. The most promising errors contain a lot of stuff about libcurl dependencies. But I'm cautious to dive in and re-install a lot of this stuff. Many internet guides seem out of date, so blindly cut and pasting commands seems unwise.
So I think that's it....any suggestions/questions welcome! Thanks

IWTL how to mine & run a node for cryptonote/cryptonite coins like XMR, AEON, etc. etc.

I feel like more and more privacy is being taken away from us day by day, and truly feel like these cryptocurrencies will be the next big thing since bitcoin. Problem is I don't know how to run Linux or use command lines, and I have a 10 year old Windows XP AMD Athlon CPU that I want to run for running nodes and mining... I also have a MacBook Pro OsX, but I know doing those things on here are pretty much pointless, since I will more than likely burn up my laptop from the inside out.
So can anyone give me a tutorial on how to do these types of things, where I can run a minenode to help out these type of coins and profit over the electricity costs; in a very newbie friendly format for running and working Linux? I still need to install Linux as well, and can't seem to figure out how to run it on my Windows.
Thanks.

Proof of hardware and hash rate in images linked above. Note that trail off at end of graphs is from shutting down the miner purposefully.
I am the first owner, and I received this miner directly from Butterfly Labs less than 48 hours ago. I still have the original box, power supply, USB cable, and of course the miner.
After tinkering with it for a few hours I have successfully mined Bitcoins (BTC), Freicoin (FRC), and Zetacoin (ZET) using my MacBook Pro and the miner GUI Asteroid. Pretty cool stuff. I have a few fractions of BTC in my wallet now so I can say that, "I mined cryptocurrencies back when I was your age" to the grandkids one day.
Now that my curiosity is sated, I'd like to pass this ASIC on to another aspiring minetinkeregeek and let them have a go at it. I can offer help if you are running Mac OS X.
If you are in the Seattle, WA area I'll deliver in person and help you get it up and running.
