All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
CEX.IO is the leading Bitcoin Cloud Mining and Commodity Exchange at the moment where you can purchase hashrate and start mining for BTC immediately. All of the mining hardware and software is cloud hosted and managed for you, so you don’t have to do anything besides purchase some KH/s, MH/s or even GH/s.
Benefits you get with CEX cloud mining for Bitcoins:
– The hashrate you purchase is yours for life.
– You can sell your hashrate the moment you decide.
– No technical knowledge required to mine for Bitcoin.
– No hardware to maintain yourself, so it is very easy to start.
– No software to configure, support or monitor.
– Collective mining, where the chance of getting a reward gets bigger proportionally to the overall pool capacity.
– All mining hardware is kept safe and maintained properly in a full featured data-center.
– No cooling or space-related problems or big electricity bills as with dedicated hardware.
– No power or network connection losses, your hashrate is stable and guaranteed.
– 0% pool fee, yes No FEE for the mining pool, so this means higher profit for you.
– Real-time Stats (see how much you’ve mined, how the system is doing, etc).
– Automatically mining some other coins (NMC, IXC, DVC) as an extra bonus.
But how does all of this work in the real world? We decided to try it out and already a week has passed out, so it is time to report what we have earned mining BTC in the cloud with a hash rate of about 187 GH/s that we have purchased. The total earnings we have accumulated in the course of 7 days equal to 0.39040324 BTC or more than $300 USD at the current exchange rate BTC/USD. And the best thing is that if we sell the GHS we have purchased in order to turn them back to Bitcoin at this moment we are going to get an extra 5% due to the higher exchange rate per GHS since the time we have purchased the hashrate. So just for one week you can say that our invested coins in BTC Cloud Mining have managed to give us about 10% profit… not bad at all.
Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital crypto currency introduced as open source software back in 2009 by a developer referred as to Satoshi Nakamoto, though it seems that nobody knows the real developer’s name. Bitcoin is called a cryptocurrency, because it uses cryptography algorithms to control the creation and transfer of the digital money. Users send payments by broadcasting digitally signed messages to the P2P network and participants in the decentralized network known as miners verify and timestamp transactions into a shared public database called the block chain. Bitcoins can be obtained by the process of the so called mining or in exchange for products, services, or other real currencies. There are multiple Bitcoin exchanges where you can trade BTC for other crypto currencies or real money, both buying and selling.
Commercial use of Bitcoin is still very small in the form of goods or services that you can purchase for bitcoins compared to its use by speculators on exchanges, which has fueled price volatility. The fact that the exchange rate of a single BTC can greatly vary not only form day to day, but it can also change very quickly in just a minute is one of the most serious concern to merchants that are considering of accepting bitcoins as a means of payment, but still the high exchange rate that is currently over $800 USD for 1 BTC makes it attractive alternative to real money, especially when you also consider the very minor taxes you need to pay for a Bitcoin transaction as compared to credid card processing taxes for example.
Bitcoin is the biggest and most widely known crypto currency nowadays, in fact it is the crypto that started it all and since it generated so much attention many other crypto currencies have appeared. Nowadays it is hard to just mine bitcoins with your computer and in order to actually mine bitcoins at a good rate per day you need a specialized hardware called Bitcoin ASIC or Bitcoin Miner. In the earlier days you could mine with just the processor of your computer, then it was possible to use your video card, but nowadays the network difficulty has gotten so high that mining Bitcoins with your computer you would not be able to just cover the electricity bill with what you earn. Bitcoin uses SHA-256 as its proof-of-work scheme, but there are a few other major alternatives of Bitcoin that use SHA-256 and can be mined the same way as Bitcoin and with the same hardware including the specialized Bitcoin ASIC hardware miners. These are Namecoin, Devcoin, IXCoin, Freicoin, Peercoin, Terracoin, Zetacoin and others. You can mine these coins and then trade them at crypto currency exchanges for Bitcoins and sometimes mining an alternative crypto currency and then trading it for BTC can yield a better profit than mining Bitcoins directly, especially if you have dedicated powerful hardware for that. And one of the latest trends is not buying directly the hardware, but renting it instead and as you can expect it is called cloud mining.
