What You Need to Mine Cryptocurrency

There are generally three basic components to a mining operation: the wallet, the mining software, and the mining hardware.


Cryptocurrency Wallet

You'll need a wallet for your cryptocurrency to store the keys for any tokens or coins your mining efforts yield. Wallets have a unique address allowing you to send and receive tokens securely. There are many types of online wallets, and there are even "cold storage" wallets that don't operate online. Decide which one is best for your needs before you start mining.

 

Mining Software
Most mining software is free to download and use and is also available for various operating systems. For popular cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, you'll find that multiple types of software can be used. While many of these options will be effective, slight differences could impact your mining operation.


Mining Hardware
Mining hardware may be the most expensive component of a mining rig setup. You'll need a powerful computer, perhaps even one specifically designed for mining.
