I mine off of like 3 laptops and two tablets and i mine Zoin or Hexx Coin. Zoin is the more popular of the two and people don't show much interest in Hexx but i mine it for the simple fact that i am a CPU miner and it's one of the only coins profitable for me right now. In one day i can mine like $7 to $10 worth of Hexx, then i simply place a sell order and wait for it to sell. As for GPU mining the only way to get in for profits is to wait for a new coin to be released with a very low difficulty, like when ZCoin came out for instance. Zcoin was one of the most profitable coins to ever be mined with a CPU or GPU when it first came out as it used a new mining protocol. I would just search on coinmarketcap for new coin releases and jump in when the timing is right, but right now ICO or Tokens are dominating the market so its hard to find a new minable coin. I would just keep a lookout as this is what i am doing.
Its sad that the ONLY part of this exchange that makes it better then the rest has taken hit after hit, and is now offline. Really? This was why I thought Cryptopia was so great, and now its gone. Sad...
Im fairly new to the Crypto space (been trading for about a month now) and i would like some help getting set up for mining.
to my understanding bitcoin is just not profitable to mine anymore (with a small rig anyway) as the big players (mining factories) in Iceland, Russia, US e.t.c just dominate this. Is this correct or can mining with a small personal rig still work for the little guy ?
If not what are some profitable coins to mine ? What kind of rig do you need to set up e.t.c ?
Not asking for everyone to spell it all out for me, happy to DMOR, but any resources or explanations of how to get started would be much appreciated.

Mineshaft was taken offline so we could investigate some connectivity issues. Unfortunately for our Mineshaft users, this was the same time we began experiencing rapid rate of growth in our user base and trade volume so our Dev team have been working on up-scaling our website as that now takes preference over Mineshaft.
Good evening, mining friends.
I'm starting now in the world of mining and wanted to put a notebook of mine to work I downloaded the mining CPU and did the script print just below but when I run the error script "stratum conection failed" I already tested both on the notebook and on my desktop.
Can anyone help me with this?
