I have an old 2012 MacBook Pro and an 2018 Macbook laying around. Is there a program or a Tool which make it possible for me to use them for Mining?

The specs are, my 2012 has 16GB Ram and a 2,7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7, the 2018 one has 32GB of Ram and a 2,9GHz 6-Core Intel core i9 processor.

I would be glad for any type of help.

  • It's not exactly hard. Download it (or build), create your config and run. Lot's of info/links at xmrig.com and on Reddit
