First I'm sorry for the inconvenience, and I'm sorry for this question (If it violates the laws of society) but I have a curiosity to start mining Ethereum.

I start with https://ethereum.org/ to know about it, but unfortunately without any result.

Can you please share with me the official application to start mining Ethereum? and all positive and negative information about Ethereum? and where I can create my wallet?

  • Try starting from here - geth.ethereum.org

  • HI! This question is a bit out of the range of a question for this site, I'd recommend looking for a good subreddit, maybe /r/EtherMining. I think you'll find it better suited for getting the information you need. Good luck! Jan 4, 2021 at 16:03

You can mine Ethereum using geth

Install geth on your pc then create an account using "geth account new" , then simply just run geth with --mine option then it will start mining the ether and all the earned ether will be sent to the account generated

Note:- As the ether mainnet is using POW you require a very powerful pc high best graphic card

  • Thanks for your response sir, so we can say that the account equal the wallet ?

  • thanks for your answer, I have last question if you want. when I use geth --mine Will the currencies be added directly to the wallet?

    Yes and if you want to add your metamask address in geth then you can use geth --help to get the appropriate command to do so Dec 29, 2020 at 10:00
