MacMiner, Bitcoin & Litecoin mining on Mac OS X

Amateur LTC/BTC Q's

Hey,
I'm really interested in the idea of mining some LTC however keep coming into an issue of sort! I have a Mac Pro and running between the Asteroid and MacMiner programs to attempt some kind of mining..
I have joined mining pools on both Supr Nova, We Mine Ltc and Coinotron. I've kind of grasped the roots of setting up workers and bringing this into the miner but the wheel keeps spinning and never gets to any actual mining.
Is LTC worth mining, what are the returns on this?
I have little to no money to invest so I was considering buying small bits of LTC to build up in trading, would this be better than buying smaller shares in Bitcoin?
Thanks for any help and advice, I'll be happy to give more info if needs be if this is something someone can help out on :)
I hope everyone is well! :)

I AM GOING TO GO CRAZY!!!!!!

So I go and get all the software to start mining, while my new wallet is doing its thing, I do some research, turns out CPU mining is not all that its cracked up to be so my MBP might just end up being a pile of junk at the end.
So after all the frustration, syncing, authenticated, worker creation, learning how to use Terminal, learning that I dont know how to use Asteroid, then finding cgminer and MacMiner, now I am going to have to go build a rig. Talk about a headache....
do we have a sub reddit for rig building? because I have never built a computer in my life and I am going to need some help...
some guy in my area is selling a few Avalon systems for $1000 & $1350 respectfully....can I use those for doge? or is it bitcoin only? is it even a good deal? why so man questions? much things learned

To help you get started on bitcoins...

Sup fellow reddit members!
Today I'm here to give you guys a long introduction about bitcoins.
Intro to bitcoins:
Bitcoins are the first decentralized digital currency.
Bitcoins are basically digital coins that you can send through the internet.
Some advantages of bitcoins:
  1. It can be transfered through other people without a bank having involved in the transaction.
  2. The transaction fees are much lower.
  3. You can use them in any and every country.
  4. Your account (explained later) can never be frozen.
  5. No limits!
How it works:
There are several online bitcoin currency exchange where you can exchange bitcoins for money and vice versa.
Bitcoins are kept in a digital wallet on your computemobile device. coinbase.com is one of the most trustworthy online bitcoin wallet, IMO.
Sending bitcoins is as simple as sending an email, and you can purchase ANYTHING with bitcoins as long as they accept the currency.
The bitcoin software is completely open-sourced, so anyone can review the code.
Bitcoins are easy + free to setup, and there are no chargebacks!
How to obtain bitcoins:
There are two ways to obtain bitcoins:
  1. Buying them from exchanges/privately. The one that I trust the most is http://www.bitstamp.net.
  2. Mining them using applications. Miners solve math problems/bitcoin algorithms (which takes computing power) and are rewarded bitcoins for doing that. This is the one that I'm going to focus on, as it is pretty hard to grasp.
Mining bitcoins:
Using special software application, you are able to mine bitcoins. Mining means to solve math problems/bitcoin algorithms using your computing power.
Blocks are a chunk of 25 bitcoins, and if you solve one math problem you automatically get a block.
The speed of mining bitcoins is measured in Hashes/Second (KH/s, MH/s, GH/s, TH/s etc.)
The difficulty of the problems gradually increases as more bitcoins are found. Now, it is almost impossible to find bitcoin blocks by yourself, as more than 10 million bitcoins have been mined.
Using special hardware (ASIC, Application-Specific Integrated Circuit chips) that specifically is aimed to mine bitcoins increases your mining speed by a lot. You can buy these hardware anywhere online/offline. amazon.com has many ASIC hardware on sale.
But even ASIC mining can still take a long time to find a block by yourself. That's how the pooled mining began.
Pooled mining basically combines the work of many miners toward a common goal. Pool of miners find the solution of the math problems faster than individuals, and they share the block equally based on each miner's hash rate.
There are many pools right now that are pretty trustworthy, but that one that I use is triple mining: http://evilbeans124.triplemining.com

  3. Select Triplemining for the server
  4. Hide the application, go to whatever browser you use, and go to http://evilbeans124.triplemining.com
  5. Register for an account
  6. Under the workers tab, add a new worker (on the right side)
  7. Go back to GUI miner, enter in your worker username/password
  8. If you have any hardware, then select them in the device tab. If not, skip this step

Mining bitcoins on a Ubuntu/Linux:
This part is only dedicated on mining bitcoins for Linux/Ubuntu users. If you're a Mac or PC user, view above.
Unfortunately, I have no experience in how to install any miner on Linux. The following website does however, so just follow it
http://www.distrogeeks.com/install-cgminer-3-7-2-ubuntu/
The end
I think I covered most of the points on bitcoins. However, if there is any mistakes/stuff that I should add, please put a comment below or PM me! It will be greatly valued!
I spent sometime doing this, so some donation will be very appreciated. My bitcoin address is on my signature.

I'd love to cpu mine a few nyancoin, but can't get any miners working on this old macpro....More info inside, but a bit guidance would be very appreciated

Thanks for taking the time to look at this....much appreciated.
I think the problem is that this old macbook pro has OSX 10.6 which apparently is too old for a lot of the mac-based gui miners (asteroid etc). I've currently got it hooked up to a BFL miner which has been using bitminter to generate an embarrassingly small quantity of bitcoins.
So I turn off all that shit and get scrypt miner downloaded, a pool joined, a wallet synched etc, and then it all goes to shit.
I've tried many fixes but can't make it work. The most promising errors contain a lot of stuff about libcurl dependencies. But I'm cautious to dive in and re-install a lot of this stuff. Many internet guides seem out of date, so blindly cut and pasting commands seems unwise.
So I think that's it....any suggestions/questions welcome! Thanks

Dogecoin made me a better person!

I am just 12 hours into my dogecoin experience and I have to say this crypto-family has made me a better person. Let me explain how the unique magic of dogecoin has improved my life, much so, wow.
First, like many of you on reddit I am decent with computers. However I switched to Mac OS X for college as i was creating multi-media. I never knew the OS like i did for windows until dogecoin came around. I also liked the idea of crypto-currency but never got into bitcoin because.... actually I don't really know why, but dogecoin was way to inviting so i decided to try it.
I have run both windows and mac on my computer now so i started up my wallet and synced it! WOW! only a couple hours to sync compared to bitcoin, where i watched my buddy wait days for his wallet to sync.
Then I have an NVIDIA card so from some research I got cuda miner going and made some batch scripts and got into my first pool.
SUCH NICE to see doge coins accumulate while mining together. I am now hooked. However, I do like MAC OS X better now so how can i get this going on MAC?
I used some programs like asteroid and mac miner but hashrate was too low. Now I was forced to make my first shell script. This may make some laugh but I jumped to the moon when it worked! Now i have CPUminer and CUDAminer working on my mac side with such success. I am having the time of my life (online).
I cashed out some dogecoin and now I register with tipbot to try tipping people. Someone reply so I can send my first tip!
I WANT to tip, that's another thing strange about this whole community.
All in all, my computer hackzors elite skills have reached new heights and my altruism too. So can't understand, wont much need to, such nice confusion.
TOOOO THE MOOON!
P.S. I can probably help other MAC OS X NVIDA people out with mining.

[For Sale] Butterfly Labs 5 GH/s Jalapeño ASIC Bitcoin Miner - runs at ~6.7 to 7.3 GH/s stable

I want to sell: Butterfly Labs 5 GH/s Jalapeño ASIC Bitcoin Miner
The price in BTC (includes shipping): 1 BTC to 134Z2Sv5B7UwUhoSxypaXGyjqHKWoTWUgv
I am willing to ship to: USA (others negotiable and not for free)
Images of my product: http://imgur.com/a/EcgZh
Proof of hardware and hash rate in images linked above. Note that trail off at end of graphs is from shutting down the miner purposefully.
I am the first owner, and I received this miner directly from Butterfly Labs less than 48 hours ago. I still have the original box, power supply, USB cable, and of course the miner.
After tinkering with it for a few hours I have successfully mined Bitcoins (BTC), Freicoin (FRC), and Zetacoin (ZET) using my MacBook Pro and the miner GUI Asteroid. Pretty cool stuff. I have a few fractions of BTC in my wallet now so I can say that, "I mined cryptocurrencies back when I was your age" to the grandkids one day.
Now that my curiosity is sated, I'd like to pass this ASIC on to another aspiring minetinkeregeek and let them have a go at it. I can offer help if you are running Mac OS X.
If you are in the Seattle, WA area I'll deliver in person and help you get it up and running.
