you have a couple of options. if you want something dirty and eazy, you can use NiceHash or BetterHash.

I recommend you use external wallets. those who had internal wallets with NH lost everything when they got hacked (though they are due for compensation...but its yet to happen). I'd recommend the same for BetterHash too...don't use an internal wallet, even if they lower the payout fees. or ensure you do payouts frequently to a third party wallet so you wont' suffer a great loss for when they get hacked. everyone gets hacked... :p

I am on many exchanges, but I use the Canada based QuadrigaCX for my wallets. keeping in mind they seem to have processing issues with payouts. my eTF was supposed to be 3 - 5 days...and that was 2 weeks ago. :blarg:

I was just going to post a similar thread, good thing I checked first. I was just wondering, similar to Shadowarez, if you can do anything worthwhile with a GTX 670 and/or 970?

I'm not expecting to make buckets of money or anything but while I was researching and reading I figured before I went too much deeper I would check with you guys here who are more experienced. Do you need multiple more modern (aka lower power draw) GPUs to make any money at crypomining or could I set something up with either of the mentioned cards?

At the end of December, early January, my GTX 970 was earning ~0.2mBTC per day. Earnings have fallen, at least on my 1080 Ti, by roughly a third since then. You would therefore be looking at an awfully long time for a payment from a (pool) site. No idea how viable mining shit coins would be.

Thanks Prickly007. It just seems like something I should play around with because it is interesting, but with many demands on my time and no plans to go spend a bunch of money on a significant mining set up I am likely better off to put more hours into something else! ;)
