In this guide, you will learn how to start mining from scratch. This is meant to help cut out on new miners asking repeat, basic questions. I have derived a lot of the information in this guide from questions I've seen around the subreddit. There will likely be information which people disagree with (and that's okay), and that can be discussed and changed based on best practices and advice from the community. Remember, this guide is meant to help understand the basic fundamentals of mining and is not to be viewed as an advanced guide for seasoned users.
