Today a friend saw my computer’s screen and, with a genuine “wtf face” said (in spanish) “…what the heck are you doing dude?”. This is what he saw:
Had you told me just one year ago that today i’d be “solo-mining” (…wtf?) a stupid crypto alt-coin (…uh?) with a couple of Gridseed ASICs (…the hell?) for like a few cents a day (…seriously?) so i can buy some other crypto-PoSV-stuff called Reddcoin and stake it (…ok mate you need help.), i think that you get the idea.
For those unfamiliar with mining, ~750kH/s is about what can be achieved with your average gamer’s mid-to-high level card (e.g. R9 280x) and pretty much worthless (nowadays anyway). It’s like hitting the faucets, but instead of spending time at the sites entering captchas you do it by searching for cheap (i.e. low difficulty and high supply) scrypt PoW coins and placing buy orders in shady exchanges hoping to crab some cheap Redds.
So i was wondering, those of us that don’t have lots of hashrate or money for crypto… how you do YOU get your Reddcoin fix? Faucets? Posting good stuff hoping to get tipped? CPU (or single GPU) mining? Trading? Doing surveys for gift cards? Anything goes! :D
PS: I sold those 77k cagecoins (seriously who buys this stuff??) in exchange for 20.8 Ð, now i’m trying to buy like 140 RDD with them. I do it for the fun because it really is waste of time and resources… a few thousand reddcoins won’t make me rich, but at least it gives me tipping funds - now my friend thinks i’m mental! (and i understand him, in all honesty)
