1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Mining profitability ASIC vs GPU on: June 15, 2018, 04:51:47 AM
When we are talking about ROI - ASICs vs GPUs, it's usually the case that ASICs will ROI faster than GPUs, which is great.
But the thing that is almost even more important is, how much time do you profit from mining after you ROI!?

This is the problem you never hear anyone talking about. After you spend all those big bucks on those ASICs and you reach ROI, how much profit do you get after, and for how long!? Not very long, right?

As far as i understand, the "post-profit" you are referring to is almost always directly correlated to ROI. Just did some tissue math but if the logic is that if you get ROI faster, then you also have more capital and opportunity to invest more profitable or more efficient hardware.

Feel free to correct me with real numbers and data.

I understand what you're saying. Basically the same thing goes for GPUs. The only difference is that usually ASIC profitability falls fast after the ROI window has past. So if you get your ASICs early on during the first shipment, then ROI, profit a bit, then sell them, that could work.

This is not needed for GPUs though. So you could safely reinvest your profit into more GPUs and profit more in the future without the fear that your profit will fall to just a few cents a day.

I notice that people are always talking about ROI. Obviously ROI is a very important thing, but i also think when it comes to mining people tend to focus too much on this.

When we are talking about ROI - ASICs vs GPUs, it's usually the case that ASICs will ROI faster than GPUs, which is great.
But the thing that is almost even more important is, how much time do you profit from mining after you ROI!?

This is the problem you never hear anyone talking about. After you spend all those big bucks on those ASICs and you reach ROI, how much profit do you get after, and for how long!? Not very long, right?

I know some people are still mining with 7970 GPUs that have long since reached ROI, which were released in 2012, and are still profiting today.

So the real question is - which devices profit the most over the whole life cycle of the device, ASIC or GPU. That is the question we should be asking. Not just, how long to ROI.  Wink

Just my two cents.  Grin
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Did I diversify too much? on: January 28, 2018, 02:45:25 AM
I think the more you diversify the better. If you have enough time to watch your holdings, there is no real reason not to diversify more.

Every coin you hold is another chance to make money. Obviously the more chances the better. So nothing wrong with that.  Wink

Also, how many PSUs are you running? If you a running more than 1 PSU, make sure they are both starting up at the same time.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Rig is freezing randomly within 30 minutes on: January 27, 2018, 09:34:38 PM
The most common cause of freezing up is GPUs overclocked too much or BIOS modded too much. Or a bad riser.

You should check those two things.  Wink

Try setting CPU priority for ccminer to "high" in task manager.

task manager>details>right click ccminer>set priority>high
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Can I mix different GPUs on the same rig? on: January 27, 2018, 08:57:56 PM
Hi I have an issue with adding an MSI 570 with a few sapphire 580's. I had the sapphires running at 31 mhs each but when I added the MSI they all dropped towards 20. I updated the bios one by one with only one plugged in at a time and got them to 30+ each. When I plugged all 5 in, only the brand the HDMI plugged into would mine. E.g. if I plugged my HDMI into the MSI, only the MSI would mine. But if I plugged the HDMI into one of the sapphires, only the 4 sapphires would mine..

i hope someone can answer your and my question? i myself had a 4 580 nitro+ rig and the same happened, i sold the msi at a slight profit then went and bought an overpriced 580 nitro+.


You guys should try running the monitor on the integrated graphics built into the CPU.  Wink

10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: GPU mining will die in 2018! on: January 27, 2018, 08:52:27 PM
As long as GPUs can mine a coin, there will be coins to mine with GPUs. It's just the way it is.

Until the day you can't make money with a coin by mining it with GPUs, this will continue.

People just want to make money with GPUs, and that will never change unless there is a much easier way to do this and everyone switches to that instead.

Yes. But it's important to not let your emotions get in the way of making money!  Wink

13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Does the video on an ICO webpage impact your investment decision? on: January 26, 2018, 09:10:46 PM
I would rather have a video, but i don't think it would impact my decision to invest in a ICO.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Huge supply of a coin on: January 26, 2018, 08:59:14 PM
If there is trillions, it means there will be bigger block rewards, which means you should be able to mine more coins per day. Since 1 satoshi is the lowest price you can have, that means you should be able to make much more money mining a coin that has trillions.

This could be a reason someone would choose to have such a huge supply coin.  Wink
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Bad time to get into GPU mining - yes or no? Share your thoughts! on: January 25, 2018, 01:43:15 PM
No matter when you ask people will always say it's a bad time to get into GPU mining. The truth is, it's never a bad time to get into it.

People have been saying this since ASICs first came out years ago.

You will get the same answer if you ask if now is a good time to invest in BTC.  Wink
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Has your gpu, psu or motherboard fried from a bad riser? on: January 18, 2018, 07:50:47 AM
I find it strange that no highend pc hardware manufacturers are selling quality risers, i bet there would be big market for those for twice the price or more. As it stands the riser is weakest part in our setup by mile. Like, i am running pc worth thousands of $, yet wire it all up with some cheap chinese boards, thats asking for trouble.

OT, all mine have worked so far, using version 008.

I agree this is a major problem with cheap chinese risers.

Also, In the past there have been some quality ones available like these.

i'm wondering if i should be buying these coins now...

flood the market right as miners get their machines so they begin to mine worthless coins

Yes, initially price may drop due to the large influx of coins. I would wait and see what happens first.
Not gonna happen.
Sia mining difficulty is often re-calculate. So, daily amount of mined SIACOIN will remain the same. However, it will go on someone else wallet.

lol@CarrollFilms  Grin

Of course daily amount remains the same, but the more the difficulty rises, the more those coins become distributed among more miners.

The more that happens, the less dumping you get (theoretically).  Roll Eyes

At the beginning more people will dump to achieve their ROI. After all this you have more chances of people holding which will help the price potentially increase.

There is no guarantee. But is just a theory.  Wink

I just know every coin that has ever has ASICs. The price has increased sooner or later.

 
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Which is the best position for gpu card? vertical or horizontal? on: January 17, 2018, 08:00:53 AM
I don't think you'll see any large difference whether it's vertical or horizontal.

FWIW, i have my cards positioned in a vertical position. And haven't noticed any difference myself.

Nice! I'm buying a few. We'll see if it actually ships in 10 days.  Cheesy

Also, there is the potential that price will increase in the next few months, due to the difficulty rise this will create.  Cool
