Crypto mining has become the domain of large companies, or those with specialised mining rigs as the difficulty to mine has risen substantially and the rewards for mining have also dropped at the same time.
However, given the recent and continued price rices in crypto, particularly Ethereum and Bitcoin, perhaps it is worth redoing the calculations and doing a little bit of mining with your existing computers, both desktops and laptops.
In just two weeks, the potential earnings from mining Bitcoin have gone up 30%. I have been using a range of small scale mining apps over the last couple of year and the last two weeks is the best it has been for some time.

CPU/GPU wear and tear
General computer wear and tear
How many hours per day that you can mine
If after looking at the costs, you believe it is worth giving it a shot, try these two platforms:
It may even be worth considering, if you think crypto prices will continue to rise, particularly over the long term. I personally think Bitcoin and Ethereum may have a correction in the coming months, but over the next few years, they will continue to rise in price and popularity.
