I know GPU mining is looked down upon, but I cant afford an ASIC. SO I would like to know how to mine Bitcoin with CGminer using my gpu. Any help would be appreciated. I already am connected to a server, so I don't need help with that.

  • This won't work. Not only will the electricity cost much more than you earn, you will likely never reach the minimum amount needed to cash out from the pool. So you earn zero. – Dr.Haribo Jan 7 '18 at 11:20
  • @Dr.Haribo I'm not to worried about electricity cause I usually use my schools. Any suggestion what I can do until I get an ASIC or two? – Micah Da Canon Jan 7 '18 at 23:57
  • Maybe try some altcoin mining. You can't mine bitcoin with just a PC, since ASICs took over in 2013. – Dr.Haribo Jan 9 '18 at 14:55

CGMiner does not support GPU mining anymore because it is too inefficient to mine Bitcoin with. It does not make sense for the authors to continue GPU mining support so they stopped doing so and it is no longer possible to GPU mine with CGMiner.

  • You just use an old version of cgminer such as 3.7.2 . There's really no point from a profitability angle because ASICs exist now, but from technical feasibility angle it is possible still: cryptomining-blog.com/… – Sun Dec 10 '19 at 7:17
  • @Sun isn't that rather like mining coal from a worked out and backfilled open-cast mine using a broken teaspoon as your only tool? Its not exactly mining if there's no possibility of finding anything. – RedGrittyBrick Dec 10 '19 at 10:05
