Okay so i read the mining guide . did not really understand most of it .
Just exactly what does this mean ? What is a droplet ?
"C: Fire up a 2 CPU/2GB droplet, choose a location, and pick the latest Ubuntu Linux. "
" You now receive an email with an IP address and a password. Install Putty or use SSH and connect with your brand new virtual server. Accept the SSH key if Putty asks. "
I f I am using a virtual machine to mine these coins then why do i need Linux and what would I install it on ?
The big question - What is this going to cost me per month or what ever to mine with this cloud based virtual machine ?
