I've been running a full
bitcoind node (Ubuntu) for a while now and would like to experiment with mining for educational purposes.
Googling anything to do with "Bitcoin mining" is fraught so I was hoping some more informed user can sanity check my plans.
I was going to buy a 20-40 G/H USB ASIC, plug that into the node and run BFGMiner on the same system, using its solo-mining configuration to communicate with my
bitcoind RPC service.
Is this a good way to proceed? If not, any other recommendation would be appreciated.
