Want a miner that runs at a hash rate of just 1.0% that of a modern ASIC miner? Well this is not that miner. This is a miner that runs at a hash rate of less than 0.1% that of a modern ASIC miner!
Learning. I wanted to peel back the covers on Bitcoin and pool based mining, and also try my hand at a larger Clojure project along the way.
- Clojure (so pretty cool)
- Costs more to run than it will ever make back in bitcoin
- Includes 2 pretty solid tests
- Peeled back the covers a bit on how Bitcoin works
Intallation & Operation
Wanna run it?
git clone https://github.com/chriskiehl/bitminer.git
Leningen should be used to run the repl and resolve the deps.
cd bitminer/ lein repl > (start-supervisor)
Then it's a waiting game. Shortly before the heat death of the universe you should be able to nab a share.
 Based on miners (as of this 2017) operating in the TH/s range, and my current i7, being run inside of a vm, using only a few cores, being in the KH/s range.
