    I don't think it's worth the hassle and increased demands on your computer hardware and electricity bills.

    Re: Mining

    Does folding at home not actually do anything for the end-user financially though?
    At least mining puts money back in your pocket...

    Just a warm fuzzy feeling that you are doing some good for humanity, giving compute resources to postgrads so they can complete some basic research.

    So pretty much the exact opposite of crypto currency, where we burn power entirely for selfish financial gain with, AFAICS, no net benefit to the human race at all

    Re: Mining

    You can try using NiceHash, it's essentially a one click miner. They do take a cut of what profits you could have made by joining a mining pool and manually setting up a miner, but it's so much easier than having to swap between the coin you're mining depending on current profitability and managing your wallets independently.
