Generate Hash to Mine Ether at ethereumfaucet.info
This section describes how to generate hash to mine Ether with ethereumfaucet.info.
After registering my Ethereum account at ethereumfaucet.info, I can go back and try their Ethereum Mining Console now:
1. Go to ethereumfaucet.info Website.
2. Enter my Ethereum account address, 0xef6Ea9F8Bd78ac42Fb2617ba90846D5785BB320c, in the address input box.
3. Click "I'm not a robot" to finish the CAPTCHA challenges. And click "Continue". I see the confirmation message: "You have claimed 1500gwei!"
4. Scroll down to find the MINING CONSOLE.
5. Click "START MINING" on the MINING CONSOLE. I see my browser starts to generate hashes.
6. Watch the hash generation statistics:
HASHES/S: 17.7 - Hashrate, number of hashes per second. TOTAL: 2533 - Number of hashes generates this session. THREADS: 4 - Number of threads used by miner. Can be changed. HASH BALANCE: 29696 - Total hashes generated PAYOUT RATE: 9320 gwei/1 million hashes
Good. I am contributing my computer resource to the Ethereum network through ethereumfaucet.info. And hopefully, I will get rewarded with some Ethers!
