This question already has an answer here:
I really want to get into mining but I want to know if mining for bitcoin is even profitable anymore.
I know that CPU mining isn't profitable at all but is there some way that I can still make a decent profit from mining bitcoin in any way? Do I need dedicated hardware? Or is it not even profitable to do any sort of mining with any hardware?
If bitcoin isn't worth it (meaning making a profit, not a loss) would litecoin be a good alternative?
