Is Crypto Mining Still Worth It: Best Way To Mine Crypto For Home Miners

When cryptocurrency mining first began in 2009 with Bitcoin, it was very profitable. Early adopters got the best out of mining. However, as more time went by, the question arose of whether cryptocurrency mining with mining rigs was still profitable for crypto enthusiasts today.

But first, let’s delve into what crypto mining is and how it works. Crypto mining means something different depending on whether the cryptocurrency you’re mining is built on a proof-of-work or a proof-of-stake mechanism.

Mining is more popular in proof-of-work consensus mechanisms. Cryptocurrency transactions are verified through mining. Mining here is done by computers that solve complex computational math problems. The first computer to solve the problem is rewarded with a token.

In proof-of-stake, your mining power depends on the number of coins you stake. The more you stake, the more coins you mine.

Here is why crypto mining with mining rigs on a proof-of-work mechanism isn’t profitable for most people:

With all these reasons, you might be discouraged from participating in crypto mining. It is true – cryptocurrency mining is often not profitable for home miners. However, that is not always the case.

There are other alternatives to crypto mining apart from mining rigs. For example, Wicrypt’s hotspot hubs act as miners for Wicrypt Network Tokens ($WNT). These devices mine WNT when people connect to your shared Wi-Fi via the hotspot hub.

Here’s why crypto mining is profitable with Wicrypt hotspot hubs:

Cryptocurrency mining is still profitable for home miners if you use Wicrypt hotspot hubs. The more people that connect to your hotspot hub, the more WNT you mine.

Apart from enjoying passive income, you can also provide internet access for your community for free or for a fee. It’s a win-win for everyone! You get to mine WNT easily and at low cost, and members of your community get access to fast internet.

You can get started with Wicrypt by minting a hotspot hub as an NFT (you get both the physical hub and the NFT). Get a Wicrypt hotspot hub now to start mining with ease.
