I am fairly new to the whole concept of ETH and mining. Firstly, I know that my setup is weak for mining, but I wanted to get some knowledge and experience before investing money in mining…
My "setup" is a MacBook Pro 15 early 2015. I know, I know. Not the best way to mine ETH…
I have installed
go-ethereum, created an account, I ran geth –rpc for about 3 days, it went to block no. arount 3900000 (I'm giving You this information, I don't know if it is relevant).
After that I started mining. It's been another few days of mining, and when I do
geth attach and I check the amount, both commands, either this one:
eth.getBalance(eth.coinbase), or this one:
web3.fromwei(eth.getbalance(eth.coinbase) ether) are both returning 0.
Does that mean that I haven't dug up even a 0,000000000000000000001 ETH, or am I doing something completely wrong?
