I was wondering if anyone knew how to mine bitcoin in python to help fund me get a car and spread the use of crypto currency.

I don't see how much Bitcoin is left to be mined by this time. It's been a thing for so long.

Your not allowed to on replit, but its not worth it on python, due to how slow it is. Try nodejs, or C++ (c++ is much faster btw)

Mining crypto currency is not something that python can really do. You could web scrape using beautiful soup to find the price.

You can find further help on youtube. Hope this was helpful!

@JoeyRueff your kinda correct you “can” but you would wast your time and money because to do it efficiently you’d have to have like a couple grand in computer equipment and you would constantly have to replace it in short it’s a bad idea.
