This question already has an answer here:
- Is this working? Am I mining? 1 answer
I started mining on a regular laptop to understand a few things, before I move on to a more serious machine.
I followed the instructions as shown here: How to Mine Ether and use Ethereum on Windows?
And I currently have these 2 windows running in parellel:
I am asking this because setting all of these up took only a short time, and it made me wonder maybe if it was too easy to set it up (Installing Geth, creating Geth account, running a node and installing Ethminer), then maybe something is wrong and it's not really working, but just showing some pretty running CMD code that looks like it's taken from a cool movie?
