1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: New AMD GPU 6000 series for mining - confirmed! on: October 28, 2020, 05:21:21 PM
Of course it has a video output. It is a gaming GPU. The 6800XT will probably the most interesting from a cost/benefit perspective.

Are they making a mining specific GPU like the p106?

If it has no video output that is a huge downside.  Crypto mining becomes unprofitable a your resale value will be almost zero.

Why windows, when I had my rigs on widows it was a pain.  SMOS is much washier for me to manage.

Great video do you have any stability issues?  Make me want to try this with my 5700s, not sure if I could keep it running never had luck with rigs over 8 cards.

Looks like the wind has been pulled from the sails for DeFi. ETH blocks are down to about 2.5ETH in rewards and revenue is about 1/2 what it was 10 days ago, 1/3 what is was 20 days ago. Whoever bough a bunch of new hardware better be in it for the long haul.

I'm curious as to how hard RVN and ETC are going to get hit these next 2 weeks.


It was fun to watch traffic pickup on mining discords knowing this was a temporary bump.

For example I bought one BTC 10,000 Oct put for $88.  $88 is cheap protection and I buy a put every month since I mine a little over 1 btc a month worth of coins.  In a collapse I will be somewhat protected for one months worth of income.  

In addition I might sell some btc futures if things look bad or over heated.  By selling the futures short you can earn some interest and lock in your income.  This caps both your downside and upside.

But in this bull market puts are cheap and they don't limit your upside but you give up some protection vs selling short the futures.

I'm not changing or adding any gpu's.  I have 136 gpus half were acquired 2016-2017 and half are 5700 XTs from 2019 and a few 5600 XTs from this year.  Once eth is gone everything else will get crushed.  Eth is 98% of Ethash algo, no current coin can adsorb that much power.  I do buy ASICs but they are mostly BTC and I use futures and options to hedge and add some return.

That being said Eth devs are always late and who knows what they will do.

We currently have 170 MH/s at 730W with 6x 570 8GB.

We were calculating the block finding possibility if we try to upgrade and solo mine.

According to our calculations with the current status of the network (total hashrate and daily block times etc.) it becomes much more profitable with solo mining after around 700 MH/s with monthly chance of > 85% for finding a block.

What do you think? If we don't need to be paid out every month, is it worth it to mine solo with 700 MH/s and work for 1 block a month?
This brings in more than pool.

Or do we miss some detail which will cause the calculations to fail.

https://2cryptocalc.com/eth-mining-calculator?hashrate=700



If this seems correct, why would anyone with a high hashrate join a pool? (Apart from going for a steady income)

No way, you might go months without finding a block.  I have 4.9gh/s and wouldn't think about solo mining eth.  To solo mine I would need to find a least 3 blocks a day.  Why solo mine when over a long enough periods its equal to pool mining.

Nice good info.  Can you skip powering the GPUS from the board and go straight to the PSU?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Riserless Motherboard on: October 07, 2020, 04:53:51 PM
If your running 5700s you also need a splitter to split the 6 pin to 2x8 pin so that is 1 male 6 pin to male 6 pin plus a female 6 pin to 2x8 pin splitter per card.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Riserless Motherboard on: October 07, 2020, 02:42:15 PM
I had 2 and returned both of them.  The PSU power for the cards has to go trough the MOBO then from the MOBO to the cards, you have to buy a lot of cables.  You also have to buy a cable to go from the white output to the CPU.  I think its made for an antminer/server power supply to power everything.  I didn't want to buy the cables so I can't tell you if its any good.

I would troubleshoot your asus MOBO instead you should be able to get it working.  I've had a lot of those asus boards and no problems with them.

For my 23 rigs I use these wifi adapters to reset my rigs from my iPhone, once my rigs are dialed in I don't do any manual resets.  I've gone weeks without touching my rigs.  I've also found the AMD RX 5000 series seem to crash more and cause more problems then my NVIDIA rigs.  If i do any additions it makes me rethink my AMD plans, using a little more power to have a rock solid rig that rarely crashes is a big bonus, up time is huge.  I have 4,900 m/s on eth and a  5%-10% downtime is hundreds of dollars a month.

I use these wifi outlets https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Q2P77JL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: ETC mining is more profitable than ETH mining... ETC DEAD ? on: September 27, 2020, 01:34:59 PM
Hey guys what do you think about mining ETC ?

Im not reallly sure some people say its dead, other say it is mineable without problems.
Are anybody here mining ETC ? do you have problems mining it ?

Best Greetings
Bery
Do your own research and don't listen to what others are saying, go to coinmarketcap and you will see that ETC is even available on binance, you can sell every 24hrs of mining if you are too scared of its 51% attack, you don't have to hold.

You can trade instantly on
1. Okex
2. Huobi
3. Binance  and many more exchanges

The 24HRS trading volume of ETC is over 500 Million dollars, don't listen to those that said it's profitable to mine because it's risky, it total nonsense

The problem is depositing to an exchange to sell, last time I looked it took 2 days of conformations from the pool then 2 days of conformations from an exchange and that is if the exchange is allowing deposits and you can not deposit to Binance.

The reason why they want to perform this reduction is because they know it won't affect security because right now ETHUSD is higher than say $80 bottom AND there is more per block in terms of fees, hence its much more profitable to mine.

So if they decrease the miner rewards they are pretty sure they will still have people mining it like they did when it traded at $80 per coin. However I wouldn't worry just yet, the EIP might not pass, but you never know. Generally they are always late on updates so even if its included in an upgrade it might take a while before it actually goes live.

I don't know enough to know if EIP-2878 has a chance to pass or not but even if it was 6 months out it would kill any incentive to buy new cards.  Right now a $350 RX 5700 is 262 days to break even so you will never make your money back.  A 75% reduction in earnings equates to a 10 cent a day profit, lol.

Did you guys see this?  Won't a 75% reduction in rewards will kill mining?  I was planning on replacing my old cards with newer cards but this has put a damper on my plans.

The new EIP-2878 would reduce block rewards by 75% and has received sharp criticism from miners who say it will compromise the network’s security.

If block rewards are cut that much mining is over.

Yeah, they have eips for both the fees and reduce block reward and if eth 2.0 iws released then half reward will be for pos users and half for miners, hybrid.

that is why miners who will survive the next culling need x2 hashrate to stay alive. 1080ti to 3080 is an example.

those who have low hashrate card but do not have physical space to add more cards and those who do not have electrical space to add more load will be the first to go.

if eth is no longer profitable to mine, the eth mining reliant cards (amd) will be on life support.

3080 cards (nvidia) that will do well on other algo will do better than others hehe




You need cheap power, once eth is done theirs so much GPU power no matter how much power you have your margins will be very thin.  I have 135 gpus started in late 2016, 90 of the gpus are almost 4 years old.  Not sure what I'm going to do.  The bright side of gpus is they maintain their resale value.  Pretty amazing I can sell my 1070s for over $100 and I paid $340 for them over 3 years ago.

at 133.33mhs x3 card rig will be 400mhs. comparable to x4 3080 rig, but much expensive. not worth the density vs x4 3080.

but if you think about it, it is still better purchase than "500mhs eth asic is 4689$ at 750w" hehe

I do prefer the 3080 cause the gddrx6 on the 3090 is the same memory slightly binned, everything is better than asics because in the end has resale value and can mine other algos. ETH will soon halve the fees and mining rewards per block and then the 0.75 cents of usd per gpu today with the rx 570 will become 0.15 cents of usd or less per day per gpu, gpus are so expensive to a point mining already lost 50% of its income, if it was before 2016 you could buy a rx 5700 nowadays for $180, no joking, that is how used to be, gpus like the 3080 would be $499 and 3070 around $300.

Just don't fry your VRAM, tests for custom RXT30XX cards coming in few days(after RTX3090 review/test).

Yeah, it seems nvidia and micron wants to clear inventory of bad binned gddrx6 memory then they will use better ones in few months.

If block rewards are cut that much mining is over.
