    Again - probably none. According to this:

    TP's Bitcoin Calculator

    you'd mine about 0.022522 bitcoins per month, nowhere near enough to even cover the cost of the electricity. Those figures were fudged slightly based on the hash rates for the E5-2690 from here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison

    Don't mine bitcoins.

    How long do you have? Ideally, you should aim to crank one out before the start of the Universe's heat death, which is around 10^100 years, give or take a couple of days. Watch your overheads, though.

    As per http://www.edugeek.net/forums/behind...-litecoin.html im looking to speculate in a few litecoins.... that being said, my first venture isnt going too well.

    The methods of purchasing them are a little "iffy" at best. Avoid LiqPAY at all costs.

    Sell them now and invest in something regulated like stocks. This is the best advice you can get. The boat with litecoins sailed years ago, they're even more of a bubble than BTC because you literally cannot spend them anywhere and cashing out is even harder. How many did you buy, out of interest?

    If you want to make money on cryptocurrencies, as I said earlier in the thread, mine them just as they launch. That way you won't have lost anything, and when you inevitably don't make any money you still have a graphics card to play videogames with.

    Then it's not too late! Get out while you still can!

    Alternatively, invest in BBQCoins and watch your profits go up uP UP!

    An alt cryptocurrency which someone made as a joke. When he posted about it, the creator said "these coins are designed to be exchanged for fun and not traded for cash." Now people are paying actual money for them simply because they are a cryptocurrency. I was being very very sarcastic when I told you to buy them.

    If you want to know where this is going, look up Tulip Mania on youtube.

    Although at least with Tulip bulbs, you get a pretty show in spring.

    Time to head over to various news sites and big up the BBQCoin in BitCoin comments, there's still chance you could make a profit from someone even more keen than you!
