I have $50,000.00 I am able to use to get started mining. I have NO idea what I am doing! Where can I look to have someone help me with this?
Get your feet wet with a minimal financial investment first! Assuming you have a Mac and you plan to do the work yourself, and you can't understand this Alpha HOWTO for a Mac Platform, you have problems and much of that high end processing hardware is likely to spoil like fresh vegetables from the grocery store staying on the shelf too long. The life-cycle of much of the ASIC hardware hitting the streets is only 6 to 18 months, with some ASIC hardware is still being sold that is a money loosing proposition. Additionally, because of the Bitcoin Difficulty Factor compounding itself it is "very critical" to get that hardware functioning from day one!!! Your ROI spreadsheet calculations will need to identify the risk of any high end ASIC mining hardware being delivered late. None of the online Bitcoin profit calculators provide a clear picture of what the risks of late deliveries really are.
Speaking for myself, and not on the behalf of anyone else (I'm not a financial adviser), I would invest not more than 2% of my wealth, and realize your investment results are very likely to be binary for the long term. Absolutely, don't bet your nest egg.
