Do you have old computers or laptops that are actually too weak to mine Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.? Most of the time it's because you don't have enough power to really mine.

Today we will show you a way how it still works - even without a graphics card and only with the CPU of the computer!
We need a Linux operating system for mining. We recommend Ubuntu.
We mean Monero, XMR for short. To do this, we need to run a few codes to make everything work!
sudo apt-get install git build-essential cmake libuv1-dev libssl-dev libhwloc-dev
git clone https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig.git cd xmrig
You can just copy and paste that and everything will be installed!
When the installation is done you need to change to the correct directory if you are not already inside:
cd xmrig cd build
Now all we need is the code to start mining. That would be this one:
./xmrig --donate-level 0 -o gulf.moneroocean.stream:10128 -u 43BmAuo2CsdgU6JQwp7X2g7mkK2j9ifnBei5s1xurnL5PJk9aczn2ftHSxML63fCpeanZigZk17Um6fXg4Pm5rw67zNQGVS -p MinerSchächner
After the "-u" comes your miner address, which is best created with myMonero.
After the "-p" is simply the miner name, which can also be changed.
To check how much you've mined, switch to
moneroocean.stream -> Adblocker must be deactivated!
Here you enter your XMR address and you can then see at what speed you are currently mining. However, it may take a few minutes for anything to appear here. In Ubuntu, too, the terminal in which you ran the code must always remain open! From 0.003 XMR there is then the first payout - that happens automatically!
