So I started researching bitcoin mining and the feasibility of doing it with a laptop. The machine in question is a mid-2012 MacBook Pro. From what I have read, it’s not worth mining bitcoins (or any other semi-mature) cryptocurrencies on a MacBook Pro. I don’t think I’m up to the task of buying an ASIC miner, but that’s essentially what you should do now to even recoup what you spend on electricity.
I should’ve jumped on the mining cart back when i first heard about bitcoin. Maybe there’s a place for my MacBook Pro in the world of mining DogeCoin… :)
