2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is Cryptocurrency Market Ready For Big Boyz? on: April 09, 2018, 06:58:09 PM
Currently, the market is experiencing the price dips but despite the buying/selling trend, the crypto investors have to sell out their cryptos in order to get the funds to pay their taxes which is also the reason for the dip.

With the bitcoin price at $6,765, ethereum at $395 and a similar downward move into the entire cryptocurrency market, this is a great opportunity for the institutional investors to break an entry into the market.

This is certainly a point of attraction for the institutional investors that presents them with a lucrative current market scenario when the prices are low. But there is no guarantee that these investors will be in for a long run.

14  Local / Mining et Hardware / miner avec ce matos ? on: April 05, 2013, 03:08:44 AM
bonjour tout le monde
voila, depuis quelques mois, l'idée de me lancer dans le mining me hante l'esprit, j'ai pas mal lu sur le sujet , et j'aimerais savoir quelques trucs si vous le permettez

voila, en ce moment ,j'ai en ma posession 7 machines,

5 machines avec 4x 5970 warercoolées
2 machines avec 4x 7970 watercoolées

en tout 28 cartes ou 48 gpu's

je les utilises actuellement dans un autre domaine de calcul gpu qui n'a rien avoir avec le mining mais qui deviens de moins en moins rentable

d'apres mes calculs, tout ce matos une fois bien overclocké, je peux obtenir environ +-22000 mh/s (a verifier)

sachant que j'ai pratiquement amorti mon investissement, et que j'habite dans un pays ou l'electricité est quasiment 3x ou 4x moins chere qu'en france

d'apres les simulation que j'ai pu faire dans ces 2 sites  et

je peux faire 1.65 btc par jour, chose qui me parait invraisemblable, meme avec un matos qui ma couté plus de 20000€
je serais content de faire deja 1 btc /jour

bien sur j'ai pas pris en compte le fait qu'une fois les ASIC serons massivement operationnels tout ce calcul sera pas valide a cause de la difficultée qui augentera et certainement du prix du btc qui chutera

donc ma question est simple, je me lance ou pas ?, es ce que mes estimations sont justes

2eme question, serait il plus judicieux de joindre un pool, ou de rester solitaire

derniere question, un fois les btc générés   , comment les vendre et a qui, et une fois vendus , les gains serons transferés vers un compte bancaire ?, n'es ce pas illégal ?
