The first thing that I want to show you is the Bitcoin wallet. Go ahead and download and install the Bitcoin wallet. Now go ahead, leave it alone, let it sync. Now there are a number of different mining programs out there, CG miner, BF miner. So, go ahead and download GUI miner. Once you download GUI miner run the miner and you will see something similar to this screen. And that will show us a screen similar to this. And that brings me to my next point.
Well, a pool is basically a collective pool, a collective network of computers that are all working together to solve blocks of information to receive Bitcoin. Now there are a number of different pools out there. BTC Guild for some reason I was making zero progress. So, the first thing that we need to do now is join a pool.
We can click here to sign up. All you need is an e-mail you create a password. Now you can see here, Bitcoin address. So, once I do that you can see it pops up here in this list. Now we need to create a worker. And this is kind of like a log in and password information. It can be anything that you want.
I suggest just something simple will work. Now this is what we need to copy. We have my Intel i7 processor and then we also have our graphics card processor. You want to select your graphics card processor. So, you can see here test miner for beginners. I have it mining. I am just going to stop that. And I have zero stales. Now this number here, this column, what this represents is a count of the number of times that you were given a bit of information for your computer to solve.
And your computer solved it and sent in the answer and your answer was confirmed as correct and accepted and so you get a share under accepted. Now if you have any numbers in this column under stale basically what that means is that you were given some information to solve. You solved it, you sent it in, but you sent it in too late or you sent it in and it was wrong. So every time you get an accepted share you get paid. Now your computer is mining. And so, how we do that is we use a calculator, a Bitcoin mining calculator.
That is great. Go ahead and click on it. And this is a Bitcoin mining calculator. So we can enter in our megahashes per second which is So, I have an or an power supply in my computer now. Whether my computer is using all that power or not is debatable. So, then the question is well, how — what do I have to do in order to make money?
Well, the answer is your megahashes per second. This number here needs to be higher, needs to be higher than the amount of money that you need to spend on electricity. So you need to make more Bitcoin than it costs to run your computer.
So, let me just give you an example. Some people are making megahashes per second which equates to 3 gigahashes. So, megahashes per second. Time frame 30 days. Keep all those settings the same, calculate. So, just to quickly answer any question that you might have, in order to get this number higher, this megahash per second we need a faster graphics card.
And so a really good website that I found is this one here. It will basically compare all of the graphics cards that are out on the market today. So, we can scroll down here a little bit. Here is the model number and it will tell you the megahashes. So, you can kind of guesstimate what your megahash number will be based on which graphics card you have or which graphics card you want to purchase. Now mind you, you can plug in more than one graphics card to your computer.
But in order to do that you need to make sure that you have enough power to do that. This is just all guessing right here. So just, these are just some resources for you to check out and kind of experiment with. All in all after watching this video you should have been able to at least set up your wallet, set up your mining software, set up your worker and connect to a pool which then you would be able to start mining. That concludes the Bitcoin for Beginners Tutorial.
Thank you so much for watching and good luck. Welcome to Bitcoin for Beginners Part 2. This may change by the time you watch this video but I wanted to address some of the most common questions that I received in Part 1. Let you know some of the alternatives for the Bitcoin wallet because a lot of people had some issues syncing to the network and getting that to work. You can see I am running GUI miner right here. I also wanted to show you a miner that the Mac users can use.
People were reporting that they were having issues with their Bitcoin wallet. Either they were having issues running the program on their computer or that it was taking too long to sync and never fully syncing up to the Bitcoin network.
MultiBit is a popular Bitcoin wallet. And one of the best things about it is that you can password protect your wallet. Now I want to make a side note. This is the wallet that I showed in video number one. And this is going to be in Bitcoin. Are you sure you want to send to the following address?
Yes, okay. You can see sent to address transfer up and there it is right there. It just transferred. I did not know that. And if we click on the transactions tab we can see the transaction, we can see all the information about it. It basically just confirms that we transferred that amount of money. See where it says keep your password safe you need this password to spend your Bitcoin and it cannot be recovered if lost.
So now my wallet is password protected. Now we have CG miner and Diablo miner. But the Mac guys I would suggest trying this anyways. And I want to make a quick side note. This is case sensitive so see how this is a capital H and a capital R.
Click on enter. So we can see our GPU, we can see what our megahash or kilohash per second is. So I really should change this to like 0. That way I just get things sent to my wallet. So, set that back to 0. And like I said it works for Mac and PC. Now, of course, I highly recommend GUI miner. I think this program is awesome. It works great. So if you can use this definitely use GUI miner.
So, that wraps up Part 2 of the Bitcoin for Beginners video series. Welcome to Part 3 of the Bitcoin for Beginners video series. The Bitcoin market, where it may be headed in the future and how we can capitalize on trading this currency. So feel free to check it out.
Okay, ready? So, which pool should you join and why. Each pool has a different payout structure and pool fees associated with it. And this should be considered when choosing a pool. BTC Guild, clearly the largest pool and one of the original pools first created for Bitcoin. But the biggest thing to consider with a pool of this size is the competition within it. Since the pool is so large it can affect your luck or likelihood of you sending incorrect information and receiving of award.
To elaborate further, pool size will also determine pool speed which determines how fast blocks are found and solved within the Bitcoin network. Moving forward, GHash. IO, this is not a public pool that anyone can join. So the goal of this method is to reap the benefits of what that power can mine in the Bitcoin market.
Their units of measure for mining power is gigahash per second, which is a thousand megahashes per second. So they provide the power and you sit back and collect the profits. Well, this may sound attractive. Of course, they take a percentage. Next is Eligius. This is a free no registration public pool that anyone can join.
Typically, you need to register an account with most pools and create workers to manage your mining and your statistics. Now registration is easy and they even provide their own mining clients for you to use, which is cool. You could just use their miner. However, their client is coded in Java, which may not be preferred by more advanced users but you can point any mining client to their pool. So it really makes no difference.
But this I cannot explain. To be honest, it works for me. Number two will be BitMinter and Eligius will round out the top three. A lot of people are wondering what the unknown pool is. But more pools create more competition between them, which in turn, is beneficial for the miners like us. Then we have these smaller individual pools.
And these smaller pools here are also available options. Yes, maybe some are just starting up and take a while to build up a user base but they move slower and find blocks slower, maybe too slow. Now at the top here, we have our reward types and explanations. And if we scroll down just a bit we see a nice chart outlining pool fees and payout structures as well as other useful pool information. Now you can see here is BTC Guild. If you remember, this was the largest pool in that pie chart.
So, if we scroll down a little bit more, we can see Eligius. They are kept by the pool. That concludes the first half of Part 3. So, please, click here to continue on to the second half of Part 3. Welcome to the second half of Part 3 in the Bitcoin for Beginners video series. Now first I want to quickly say thank you to all the people who have been watching these videos since Part 1.
And then of course the newcomers who may be joining us and watching this video for the first time today. One comment I see often is people asking for Bitcoin. We left off talking about mining pools in the first half. Now whether it will continue to rise or drop significantly tomorrow is uncertain. But I think there is still room for this price to grow. We went as high as and then we dipped, had a spike and it looks like we may be coming back for another return to that , and beyond.
How can we make some money and get a slice of the pie? How can we exchange our Bitcoin for real money? You can purchase half a Bitcoin or. Then you would purchase only. That leads us to the next question. Now if you already have Bitcoin and all you need to do is send it to your Coinbase account you can click on account settings and then you can click on Bitcoin addresses and you can create a new Bitcoin address. Send all of your coins to Coinbase. You can see that.
And all we need to do is enter that amount here. Step one, leave me your usual comments or questions or spam but be sure to ask for your share link.

Tips and Warnings. Related Articles. Article Summary. Part 1 of Create a Bitcoin wallet. Today, buying and selling Bitcoin is easier for beginners than ever. As your first step, you'll want to sign up for something called a Bitcoin wallet. Like its name suggests, your wallet is a digital account that makes it fairly easy and convenient to buy, store, and sell your Bitcoin — think of it like a universal Bitcoin checking account.
Unlike a checking account, however, starting a Bitcoin wallet usually takes less than a minute, can be done online, and is quite easy. Sites like Coinbase. Link your bank account to your wallet. Once you have a wallet, it's time to fill it with Bitcoin. Typically, to do this, you'll need to supply the financial details for a real-world bank account just like you would if you were setting up a PayPal account or signing up for another online payment service.
Usually, you'll need at least your bank account number, the routing number for the account, and your full name as it appears on the account. You can almost always find these on your online banking account or on your paper checks. To be clear, linking your bank account to your Bitcoin wallet is not any more of a risk to your personal security than it is to shop online. Virtually all reputable Bitcoin services make a point to advertise their high standards for security and encryption.
While Bitcoin services have been targeted by hackers in the past, so too have many major online retailers. Buy BTC with money from your bank account. Once you've supplied your bank information and it's been verified by the Bitcoin service, it should be fairly easy to start purchasing BTC and adding it to your wallet. Usually, on your wallet page, there should be an option labeled "Buy bitcoin" or something similar — clicking this should take you through a straightforward transaction process that uses money from your bank account to purchase BTC.
Note that the price of Bitcoin can and does change from day to day — sometimes significantly. Because Bitcoin is a relatively new form of currency, its market has yet to become stable. Use your Bitcoin to buy from retailers that accept it. In recent years, an increasing number of businesses have begun to accept Bitcoin as a valid form of payment.
Though these businesses still represent a minority, some major names have already made the transition. You can then sell these goods to make a profit or simply keep them. Sell your Bitcoin to another user. Unfortunately, selling Bitcoin isn't quite as easy as buying it. In general, one of the easiest ways to do this is to sign up with an online Bitcoin marketplace. Once you find a buyer, you will complete the transaction through the website but will otherwise deal directly with him or her.
To use this method, you'll usually have to register a seller account and verify your identity in a process separate from the one used to create your wallet. In addition, some sites like Purse. Alternatively, sell your Bitcoin on an exchange. Another option for sellers is to use a Bitcoin exchange. These sites work by pairing sellers with prospective buyers. Once a seller is found, the website acts as a sort of intermediary or escrow service, holding the money until both parties are verified and the transaction is completed.
Usually, there is a minor fee associated with this service. Selling with this method is not usually an instantaneous process. In some cases, users have even complained that exchange services can take an inordinate amount of time to complete transactions compared to other options. In addition, some exchange sites like Binance, Bittrex, Bitfinex and Bitcoinshop allow you to trade Bitcoin for other digital currencies like Dogecoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Monero.
Part 2 of Consider setting up a regular purchase scheme. If you're serious about investing in Bitcoin, you may want to devote a small portion of each paycheck towards buying the virtual currency — this is a great way to amass lots of Bitcoin over time without any major one-time expenses. Many Bitcoin wallet sites like, for instance, Coinbase offer the option to set up regular withdrawals for the purpose of buying Bitcoin.
This generally works a little like regular withdrawals for a k — you specify a certain amount of money, and this money is withdrawn from your account at regular intervals and used to buy Bitcoin automatically. Consider buying Bitcoin locally. If you'd like to keep your money in the local community, consider using a service that allows you sell to people near you.
Rather than pairing you with anonymous online buyers from anywhere in the world, certain sites give you the option of searching for sellers in your local area. If you choose to meet with these sellers in person, observe all of the normal precautions you would for meeting someone you met online — meet in a public location in the daytime and, if possible, don't show up alone.
See our article on the subject for more information. The site allows you to search for buyers in over 6, cities and countries, including the US. Consider buying into a Bitcoin investing company. One option that's often advertised as being "less risky" than buying and selling Bitcoin directly is to put money into an investment agency. The Bitcoin Investment Trust, for instance, allows users to buy and sell stock in the company just as they would for any other company.
The Trust then uses the money to buy and sell Bitcoin with the goal of making money for the investors. Because the company deals solely in buying and selling Bitcoin, the company's share price is directly tied to the price of Bitcoin. However, some users find this option preferable because the professional investors at the Trust are presumably experts and because it allows them to forgo the process of finding sellers and managing their Bitcoin accounts on their own.
Consider "mining" Bitcoin. Ever wonder where Bitcoins come from? In fact, new Bitcoins are created through a complicated computing process called "mining. When your computer solves the problem first, you are awarded Bitcoin. The supposed benefits of mining include the fact that you are essentially "making" BTC for yourself without using any of your real-world money.
However, in practice, maintaining competitive status as a Bitcoin miner can involve substantial investments in specialized hardware.
