For this tutorial I’m going to use as an example of mining is the Ethereum, Since the last 2 topics that I posted was all about building a mining rig. But before we start lets have a quick background check on Ethereum and if its same to Bitcoin?
Ethereum is an open software platform based on blockchain technology that enables developers to build and deploy decentralized applications.
Like Bitcoin, Ethereum is a distributed public blockchain network. Although there are some significant technical differences between the two, the most important distinction to note is that Bitcoin and Ethereum differ substantially in purpose and capability. Bitcoin offers one particular application of blockchain technology, a peer to peer electronic cash system that enables online Bitcoin payments. While the Bitcoin blockchain is used to track ownership of digital currency (bitcoins), the Ethereum blockchain focuses on running the programming code of any decentralized application.
