Mining for cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, ether, and dogecoin isn’t as lucrative as it used to be. Here’s a look at how to do it and why small-time miners are being driven out of business. Bitcoin topped $58,000 in February for the first time. Ether, the world’s second-biggest cryptocurrency, has also hit record highs this year. Even dogecoin — a cryptocurrency invented as a joke that does not have the same serious function and institutional backing as bitcoin — surged more than 50% in the last month after a tweet from Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

It is easier than ever to buy a small fraction of one bitcoin using an app such as Coinbase. However, that’s not the only way investors can get their hands on cryptocurrency.

Investors can also mine for the digital currency. Before the Covid-19 pandemic started, CNBC went to a blockchain production studio in Brooklyn to learn how to mine for bitcoin’s biggest rival, ether.

    Yea Navy federal gave me a really high limit. I applied and was denied at first so I got a Exploit Byte service , and I was approved for a capital one. The limit was so small lol but I took it and worked on it. Because if that it helped my credit and I believe that’s what made me finally get approved for navy fed with such a high limit. they're still working on increasing the capital one since it was so low. All in all I’m satisfied.

    Very informative video you have here, there are several reasons why investment advisors and high net worth investors including major Banks are recognizing the benefits of Bitcoin in their strategic asset allocation. Key among them are portfolio diversification, the upside potential versus other assets, and future adoption potential with others like ETFs. (countries like Germany are taking the lead already). So far my trading experience has been awesome for years with the teachings of career trader ExploitByteNeT who has been my portfolio strategist. I started with little over 4BTC, so far i've accumulated more than 6BTC after taxes.
