This video clears up some misconceptions about mining bitcoin and also shows the reality of the situation. You could get rich fast if say, you had high speed internet and 20+ computers mining for you. Sure, that would do the trick. However you have to have the right hardware in your computer to get that speed you need. Is it worth it? You decide and tell us below in comments please.
This video goes over my 7 day 1 week Bitcoin Mining experiment. I let my computer Mine for Bitcoin for a week straight, to see how much money I could generate. I left my PC on while I slept and well, you'll have to watch the video to see what I made in profit. :)
