Top 5 Altcoins Cryptocurrencies Easy and Profitable To Mine In 2018

I get this question a lot from people who attend my seminars, from clients and average Joes (once they find out what I do) who are interested in mining bitcoins; “can I and how do I make money mining bitcoin.” My answer is the same every time; “you’re too late! you will need 100s of 1000s of dollars if not millions to get a mining facility off the ground and if you’re lucky (a big IF), you’ll make about $100/day!”

What’s even worst is… ‘the Fed, the U.S Marshals, the FBI and their mamas will be breaking down your doors after you take down the city’s entire power grid; that’s how much electricity you will be using.” Guess what? It happened in China already. In fact, the biggest headline today is….”China Banning Bitcoin Mining & Cut Off Electricity for Those Who Mine.”

Even though all hope is lost for the common wo/man to mine bitcoin (dominated by one group in China), there are still plenty opportunities in mining cryptocurrencies or altcoins. Bitcoin may have been the first, the biggest and most popular; but 1,000+ copycats, clones or altcoins have surfaced since then.

Mining validates the legitimacy of a transaction as well creates a flow of new crypto-currency as a reward to the miner. In the Proof Of Work system, the puzzle that the miner must solve has a key feature: asymmetry. This idea is also called as a CPU cost function, client puzzle, computational puzzle or CPU pricing function, commonly.

The network miners essentially compete to be the first to arrive at the solution to claim its records. Proof Of Work usually utilizes brute force by the miner and thereby, a huge number of attempts. As soon as the miner has solved the problem, he/she announces it on the ledger and immediately receives a fixed amount of cryptocurrency as the reward. Below are 5 altcoins / cryptocurrencies that are easy and extremely profitable to mine in 2018 and beyond.

2018 will be the best year yet for cryptocurrencies and I'm going to help you position yourself now to profit. Hi, My name is Mathieu Louis, I started one of the first bitcoin blogs in 2010 and started investing in the virtual currency when only a few technology savy people knew about it and even knew what it was. I'm one of the individuals responsible for making bitcoin mainstream today. I mad a LOT of money on bitcoin, but I missed a few opportunities was well. I'm not beating myself up though because 2018 is going to be an epic year. Academically, I obtained a Master's Degree in Information Science from Florida State University in 2004. I also have a background in business. I worked for one of the fortune 500 corporations in Washington D.C. for about 4 years, then decided to start my own business. Since 2009 I've been a one-man wrecking crew. I have traveled the world (recently returned from an 18-country backpack excursion. I own many online businesses and I'm a thrill seeker.
