This question already has an answer here:

Does Bitcoin Core Wallet and Bitcoin Core Wallet Testnet both need to be running to mine? I can't see or tell any Bitcoin earning mining is taking place.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Bitcoin Core doesn't contain mining functionality any more. It's not effectively possible to mine Bitcoin with software alone, not even on Testnet.

Any information telling you that you can earn Bitcoin just by running Bitcoin Core is utterly obsolete and should be ignored.
