All junk now.

Why this crypto currency rage? When crypto currency becomes mainstream currencies there will have to be placed a limit, and it will just replace current currencies without changing the market. The reason why crypo money works in South America and Africa is because of it's harsh class and economic divide.

If coin mining is so profitable then why is this company not just using them to mine rather than selling them?

I remember waiting 7 months for my butterfly labs bitcoin asic in like 2012, by the time they had finished premining it and sending it to me it was useless. Such is the way with asic even today.

The S9i from bitmain now is only 426$ w psu USD with 14.5ths I want to buy 4 then go off grid with them but prices that low suggest there is a more powerful miner in the works

LOL mining is becoming unprofitable... meanwhile I make 1 doge fast on faucets.

Why hasn't the original Bitcoin creator made himself known and fork Bitcoin.
Gazza-usa (1 month ago)
Bitcoin mining is a waste of energy, compute power and money. We are at the point where the compute density required to mine is way above the profit level required to maintain the task. It’s a scam to sell you on the idea that you can make money. You won’t. You are buying a shovel to dig for a 1mm speck of gold that is worthless. You’re better off collecting plastic bottles and trading them in for cash !!!

I see ads on eBay for video cards where people say never used for mining. Can you or is there a way to find out if it actually was used for mining or is it just a shot in the dark. And if it was used for mining does it make the card not work as good or the lifespan not as long?
People think these vids are destroying the GPU market, when actually its sacrificing the near future in order to kill CriptoMining even faster.

So the ASIC Hardware has come down in price like crazy. From 2500$+, to 500$. I wonder why? I am assuming is getting harder to ROI because of the massive competition right now.

Can you not simply mine with your regular PC with one video card during idle times? Or even mine while using your computer during low video card demand use, mining with spare resources?

step one - get an old tanker truck step two - go to the town with the lowest gas prices step three - fill up tanker with lowest price gas step four - get a medium sized generator step five - set up mining rig and use generator power with cheap gas to mine bitcoin step six - profit (jk)

At our facility we are mining with CPU, GPU, and ASIC's, dramatically more profitable per power consumption and part cost to build your own rig, that is because as the market fluctuates you want to change what currencies you mine. With ASIC's you are stuck mining one algo per machine, S9 (SHA256) L3(Scrypt) (MY FAVORITE <3 ) and with graphics cards, you can learn how to github, build, and mine anything you want. I am not listing my facilities hardware here, but if you got any old computers you want to get rid of, [email protected]

but like whats the point of solving it lol like what is the purpose of the solution?
Devon Merritt (3 months ago)
MrFatbard solves complex equations on the blockchain and when your asic or gpu solves part of one you’re rewarded with the coin you’re solving for. that’s where the profit comes in. simply put
