So where do I start?

First Get a BitCoin Wallet

The quickest and most user friendly wallet to setup is CoinBase. It works much like PayPal and allows you to Send/Receive BitCoin payments as well as Buy/Sell BitCoins. Start by setting up an account HERE.

Their site is perfect for those new to BitCoin and not too into the technically side but rather looking for a quick and easy setup.

Once you’re signed up,

1. Click Account Settings on the LEFT side bar.

2. Click BitCoin Address at the top menu.

3. Click the + Create New BitCoin Address button.

You’ll see a new BitCoin address pop up below.

It will look something like this: 31uEbMgunupShBVTewXjtqbBv5MndwfXhb

Select that text and copy it to your clipboard.

Next Begin Mining Bitcoins

Sign up at BitMinter.com to begin mining.

Once you have an account and are logged in, click the CHANGE button of the BTC cash out section and paste your wallet’s BitCoin Address there. I also changed my payout threshold to the minimum of 0.01000000

Now you’re ready to start mining!
