I am a complete newbie and just want to see how mining works in principle. No profit required. I have created an account on slushpool and have username and password. Then I go to my Ubuntu machine (a desktop, with GPU, no ASICs or something) and ran

bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.slushpool.com:3333 -u myusername -p mypassword

It started to print in cycles

Why? What is happening? What am I doing wrong?

I am also new to slushpool with bfgminer. follow steps if it works to you .

sudo bfgminer

then enter url

stratum+tcp://stratum.slushpool.com:3333 

then it will ask username with worker

username.worker

then password

thats it .
