NiceHash is a handy service that allows you to sell others your PC hardware to mine cryptocurrency. It’s possible to join mining pools to combine computing power and earn some Bitcoin in return by running this software. You can quite easily.

How to set up NiceHash

All you need is your gaming PC, so once that’s up and running, simply follow the steps below to start mining crypto (well … technically, it’s selling your PC hardware) and earning some Bitcoin.

  1. Register an account on the NiceHash website.
  2. Download the mining software.
  3. Run the NiceHash software.
  4. Enter your NiceHash address (double-check to make sure you enter it correctly).
  5. Optional: I recommend disabling the CPU under “Devices.”
  6. Hit the big play button.
  7. Profit.

I recommend disabling the CPU because it’s simply not worth it, in my opinion. It’s better to free up your CPU or power it down to save on consumption and allow your GPU to do all the heavy lifting. If you’re looking for the best mining GPU, we rounded up not only the best graphics card for gaming but also more affordable options for crypto mining.

How to optimize your PC for mining

While it’s certainly possible to load up NiceHash, set it all up and leave it running for years, it’s best to do a little tinkering to get the most out of your GPU without using too much electricity. If we can lower our consumption without affecting performance, we stand to make more profit.

MSI Afterburner is a great tool for altering GPU power, clock speed, and other values.
