Continuum pool is recommended over deepbit, read this post to use that instead. Instructions are virtually the same. https://deepbit.net/ Sign up for an account. Choose proportional mode. Download this and this and this. First one you just extract. Second one is your mining program. Third one is your wallet where you keep track of all your bitcoins. So you have a deepbit account, right? Well anyways after everything is extracted and installed open up your bitcoin.exe. There is a long string of text near the top in a box. That is your address. That is how you get paid and pay others. Copy that and then goto your account and paste it into the "Your bitcoin address for receiving rewards" box. Save settings. Now go back to your account and click create worker. Set the worker's login tail to 0 and the password to anything you will remember. Leave payout as proportional and click save settings. Open up GuiMiner. File>new other miner and navigate to where you extracted that third link(the one with 4 .exes). Select rpcminer-cuda.exe for your new other miner. Name it CUDA. In the guiminer tab for this new miner(the CUDA tab) set the server to other. Host: pit.deepbit.net Port: 8332 Username: [email protected]_0you must add the _0 Password: The password of your created worker Extra flags: Only needed for more than 1 graphics card, if this is true, read part 2 Go into guiminer and do file > save settings. Now click start mining. The number of MHash/s is completely dependent on your graphics card's power. I have 2 cards that get about 30 MH/s each. To check your mined coins go here. Okay, so now just a bit of explaining. Your deepbit account is merely a holding place for your coins. To actually spend them you need to payout to your address. To do this goto your account and click the Payment link. You can only pay out if you have over 0.01 BTC. When you pay out it will appear in your bitcoin.exe, it takes a while the first time and every payment after that it is near instantaneous. Once it is in your bitcoin.exe congratulations, you now have bitcoins to spend. To spend them you just get the address of the person who you are sending them to then click the send button on bitcoin.exe, put in their address and the amount. Also, goto C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin (if you're on windows7) and backup your wallet.dat file. That is your wallet. It has all of your money. Don't delete it. Part 2, multiple graphics cards. I have 2 graphics cards so setup took a bit more for me, if you have only 1 ignore this section. Only a few things you need to do. Go to your deepbit account and click "create new worker". For worker login tail set it to 1. Set the password to something you will remember. Leave payment proportional. Save settings. Now go to your guiminer. In your original CUDA tab with your username as [email protected]_0 go into the extra flags and put in "-gpu=0". Now go to file>new other worker and choose the rpcminer-cuda.exe as before. Name it CUDA2. In the CUDA2 tab have the following settings. Server: other Host: pit.deepbit.net Port: 8332 Username: [email protected]_1must have the _1 Password: The password you set when you made the new worker on deepbit. Extra flags: -gpu=1 So you end up with 2 tabs, a CUDA tab that has all the same settings except the email ends in _0 and the extra flags as -gpu=0 and a CUDA2 tab with the email ending in _1 and extra flags are -gpu=1. File>save settings in guiminer and click start mining on both tabs. A final piece of advice. This will use your GPU heavily, if you are gaming or anything else and notice that video is lagging go to the tray in the bottom right, find the GuiMiner icon and right click it and close it. Do not click stop mining in guiminer.exe. This always crashes my computer and will likely crash yours. Just close the program from the tray.

hi guys. i've known of BitCoins for a while, but i've just started to really learn about them this past week. nobody i know knows anything about them, so i'm trying to just teach myself from the internet. i started by reading a ton of start off guides and whatnot. i have the bitcoin-qt wallet to start off with. next, since pool mining is my main interest, i followed this guide after the wallet, i downloaded rpcminer for my mac. next, i set up an account on slush's pool and finished the instructions. i think i did everything right, but when i run rpcminer i get
"Starting RPCminer (CPU)...
Client will start 4 miner threads Work will be refreshed every 4000 ms Could not retrieve work from RPC server. CURL return value = 7 Could not retrieve work from RPC server. CURL return value = 7 Could not retrieve work from RPC server. CURL return value = 7 Could not retrieve work from RPC server. CURL return value = 7 Could not retrieve work from RPC server.

CURL return value = 7 No blocks are being hashed right now. This can happen if the application is still starting up, you supplied incorrect parameters, or there is a communications error connecting to the RPC server. Could not retrieve work from RPC server." any help would be greatly appreciated! how can i fix this error? or are the different mining softwares or mining pools that work better? i've tried really hard to get this working myself but i seem to be stuck. i'd really appreciate any hands-on help i can get from people who know their stuff. i have a macboook air with a 1.8GHz intel core i5 ivy bridge processor, and the integrated intel HD Graphics 4000 512 MB. if you need any more information i didn't include to help me, please say so i can fill you in. thanks a ton for looking! Edit- thanks everybody for all the help! Its greatly appreciated. I never thought about overheating it. I'll just consider other options if i do decide to get somewhat serious into mining, like an asic jalepeno or something edit 2- i've found a computer i can use, with an amd fx-8350 inside of it. i'm trying to figure out how many bitcoins i can mine if i start using it soon. i've googled around a lot, but i can't seem to find the hash rate for this GPU. i'm probably going to start mining on it this weekend, but having some sort of a clue of what i can mine would be nice. i'm not looking for a get rich quick sort of thing, i'm just looking to get into mining as more of a hobby. i'd rather not buy a dedicated miner, and i think i can mine a fair amount of bitcoins with the 8350 before all the new ASICs arrive. thanks if anybody knows the hash rate on the 8350!
New miner here. Need some help with RPCMiner and CUDA.
So here goes... I went and set up a new PC because I happened to win a GTX Titan in a lucky draw back in February. There were some issues with the motherboard that I bought and the rig was out of action for about a month. Now that everything is up and running I decided to do a spot of bitcoin mining to test out the system and to make sure everything runs fine. I downloaded GUIMiner and fiddled around with it a bit, then I downloaded RPCMiner as well as Ufasoft. Ufasoft's CPU and GPU mining programs work fine but they don't do CUDA. Thus, I tried to get the CUDA RPCMiner to work but I ran into some problems: C:\guiminer\miners\RPCMiner>rpcminer-cuda.exe -url=http://api2.bitcoin.cz:8332 -user=herp -password=derp -threads=1 -aggression=12 -gpu=0 Client will start 1 miner threads Work will be refreshed every 4000 ms 1 CUDA GPU devices found Setting CUDA device to device 0 Loading module bitcoinminercuda_11.cubin Unable to load CUDA module I've tried googling, it seems that people have this problem but nobody has posted any solutions. Can anyone here help? Much thanks in advance.
