Bitcoin Miners Meetup - February 2014

To answer the needs of the growing market of mining Bitcoin and alternative cryptocurrencies, this meetup will be dedicated to sharing information about how to mine effectively.


18:30-19:00 - Gathering and refreshments
19:00-19:05 - Opening Words
19:05-19:15 - What is mining? (Meni Rosenfeld)
19:15-19:45 - How to mine at home (Ohad Asor)
19:45-20:10 - Mining pool reward methods (Meni Rosenfeld)
20:10-20:40 - Q&A Panel (Meni Rosenfeld, Ariel Horwitz, Ohad Asor)
20:40-22:00 - Free discussion, live demos and mining hardware trading

The hands-on content will focus on Scrypt-based cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin, due to them being more accessible currently for casual mining.

The lectures will be given in Hebrew.

We would like to start the event at 19:00 sharp, so please make an effort to arrive on time, taking traffic into account. From 18:30 you'll have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments and socialize.

As always, the talk will be recorded for those of us who can't attend.

There is a large paid parking lot nearby on Harakevet street. In addition, you can park inside the building, it will cost 20 NIS with a sticker you can collect in the meetup.

    I'm a complete beginner. From my experience if you don't hold a degree in electric engineering or majors in mathematics, many parts of the lecture were an excellent practice to my Chinese. Did anyone else share a similar experience?

    • Debbie

      yes, I share your experience about the second talk. I missed the first one but the third - about pools - was far more understandable for a beginner.

      I think Ohad could have spent more time on how to actually go about mining and less on how to optimize performance. But mining is highly competitive and if you don't know some theory and don't optimize your performance you're probably going to take a loss. If mining seems complicated after the meetup, maybe that's not a bad thing...
