Users Can Mine Ethereum at Home Thanks to Golem Network
The Golem Network launched an interesting app in September. Its app allows users to mine Ethereum on their laptops, but it could be a long time before riches can be reaped.
Thanks to Thorg App users can mine Ethereum on Windows-based PCs and laptops. The app released by the decentralized computing resources sharing platform runs in the background. It harnesses unused computing power to process the calculations required for proof-of-working mining. Users should pay attention to one very interesting detail. For their services, people get Golem’s native GLM token and not Ethereum.
Ethereum, users, and technical aspects
The system created by the Golem Network runs on layer-two aggregator Polygon.
Polygon alleviates any heavy transaction fees associated with the ERC-20 GLM token. Golem’s CEO also made a comment about Thorg App. The purpose of the Thorg app is to increase the adoption of the Golem Network by allowing users to earn passive income on their computers.
To mine Ethereum on their laptops, users need the Windows 10 operating system. Another requirement is to have a 6 Gigabyte or greater graphics card, which only high-end gaming laptops will have.
People who think that this could be an easy way to make a mint by mining at home may have to change their positions. For example, a 6GB graphics card will produce a hash rate of around 26 MH/s according to review websites.
After considering this factor we should not forget about power consumed by laptops and PCs as well. An average desktop PC consumes around 600 watts. All in all, profits from mining Ethereum on a PC could yield around $0.06 per day. It could take a while to make $1. This is just one theoretical example and results may vary depending on various factors.
