1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: ETH Difficulty? on: September 13, 2018, 03:37:18 PM
It's not profitable anymore, here in my country you will get almost nothing when you mine eth.
You've got to pay the electricity with the ETH you mine and you are still even short.
No longer profitable, high difficulty and low reward.

If your electricity price is 5c/kWh, you can still make profit, but the ROI is long.

is there support coming for amd cards for BitcoinZ will fork to the ZHash

It forked days ago. There is cuda miner but not amd. BTG is going to fork in the first week of July. Still no word from Claymore...

We need Claymore support!

Will you be updating to support Cryptonight-Heavy implementation that SumoKoin just implemented in their fork?

I hope it will support the Cryptonight-Heavy implementation.

So with this TYPICAL 2000$  config
Typical ETH build:

5 x RX580 8 GB - $310 ea or $1,550 total
1 x mobo with support for 5 or 6 GPUs - ~$120
1 x CPU (Intel G4400) - ~$50
1 x RAM 4 GB - ~ $30
1 x 120 GB SSD - ~$50
5 x PCIe USB risers - $50
1 x 1000 watts PSU - $150


nowadays, How much $ we can make monthly ?

The 580 price has reduced from that figure.

For a PSU I'd recommend getting a server one (94%eff. Platinum rated). ParallelMiner sells some really nice kits. Smiley

But you need to do some modification on the server PSU.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Until how long will GPU mining last? on: July 07, 2017, 01:20:35 PM
GPU mining will last as long as it will be profitable. When there will be too much miners, the difficulty will drop, and more will join. At some moment there will be an equilibrium that will rise and lower.

When there will be too much miners, the difficulty will rise.

eth asic's confirmed

I think it will be a scam.

my 7850 is doing 160 h/s @ 1100 core and 1300 memory i  think its rather high

My Powercolor HD 7850 does 195 -198 H/s on ZEC. Core clock 1240 Memory clock 1500.

thats very good im using 7870 LE getting a steady 185-190H/s using Crimson 15.12, OC @ 1200core / 1600mem.

I also get similar results.

Lack of GPUs prolongs profitability for those who already have them, or manage to get some.

 However, do keep in mind that NVidia makes GPUs too, and they are very profitable on most coins and can often beat AMD on hash/watt even where they lose on hash/$ (mostly ETH ETC and such, and the Cryptonight coins like XMR).

 For ZEC (which isn't the most profitable NVidia coin by far but is probably has the second most GPUs mining on it) NVidia is quite close on hash/$ (and might even WIN on some comparisons) WITHOUT FACTORING IN the current AMD "gouge" pricing.

 Funny part - folks have been pushing the Skein coins a lot, but I actually ended up making more on something else (that I'm NOT going to mention here, as it's fairly small and I don't want the profitability of it to get overwhelmed by a bunch of newbies or even one BIG farm jumping all over it).

Mentioning it or not, it doesn't really matter in the end because it eventually evens out with other coins profitability, lots of people know about whattomine, and also people can check what's hot on trading volume on any exchange especially poloniex which is booming hard... probably you meant SIA,(but it doesn't matter)
SIA went up by a lot last couple of weeks and I jumped on the hype train just today, dual mining eth has finally become more profitable for me...

But Sia is just one of many, generally every altcoin has been pumped since last ~2 months...
That is right. As long as the ETH and ZEC is still mineable, the gpu mining will last.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Want to start mining dash on: May 13, 2017, 04:17:01 PM
I think today it's better to buy new gpus than asic miners, Gpu can be used for other things, asic not.
hi, do u know : Is it good for dash mining? Bitmain Antminer S7 4,7 Th/s BTC bitcoin miner bitmaintech

S7 is only for bitcoin mining.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Claymore's ZCash AMD GPU Miner v12.4 (Windows/Linux) on: May 01, 2017, 05:07:06 PM
I have a rig with 5 7970.
It works well in the last few months with various version of Claymore miners.

At present, after the miner is started and run for some time it shows
"Cannot get Overdrive capabilities for adapter 0 " and then stopped automatically.

How to solve this problem.

I have a rig with 6 RX 480

What should driver should I use?

Sometimes I mine ethash (ethereum). Sometimes I mine equihash (zcash).

Obviously I can't change driver everytime I switch.

What driver should I use that's best for both?

Where can I download both of your miner? I didn't see windows version of the miner in drive link.

For the ETH and ZEC, you can use the same driver.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Want to start mining dash on: April 06, 2017, 04:50:31 PM
There are a few other suppliers.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: only 7950 and 290x - eth or zcash? on: March 20, 2017, 06:18:12 PM
these old generation power hogs seem to do well on zcash even against the rx480 but on ethereum they only hit about 15mh?

am I correct in thinking right now mine zcash and sell for eth if you want eth?

That is right. These cards are excellent for ZEC.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Claymore's ZCash AMD GPU Miner v12.3 (Windows/Linux) on: March 09, 2017, 11:38:31 AM
ZEC: GPU0 455.346 H/s, GPU1 481.857 H/s, GPU2 460.153 H/s
v12.3 -i 7
gpu0 is fury
gpu1 is fury x
gpu2 is nano
for v12.2 can't use -i 7 , for v.12.3 i can use -i 7 but can't -i 8

Do you use "asm" algo for Fury or "2" ?

I have R9 nano, I use the -asm 1 for them.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Claymore's ZCash AMD GPU Miner v9.3 (Windows/Linux) on: January 04, 2017, 10:53:46 AM
Hi, can anyone tell me which card is currently the best for mining in terms of h/w. Currently I have 2x rx470 4gb and 1x hd 7950 and I get 615 h/s with 440w consumtion. I have them all undervoltet. If stock, rig is working at 540w. I have opportunuty to get msi rx480 4gb for 220 but am not shure to buy it.

The best card is AMD R9 nano. But it s too expensive.
17  Economy / Speculation / Re: touch down to 800$ is near on: December 24, 2016, 10:35:38 AM
Expanding adoption coupled with price manipulation, of course. As I said yesterday, it will be clear in a short while if this grown is organic or on "juice". If the price establishes itself around its current levels, it will be real adoption and we could expect the price to continue to rise in the future. If this price surge is manipulated, then it won't stay at these levels for long and it should drop sooner rather than later.
The price already been drop and back to 800 value and i think many people are actually satisfied what is the price right now they have no strong believe that the price could be hit at 1k value if that is happen that more people are not believing that the price could be hit to 1k value the price will drop if the price hit 900 value again soon.. if there is more people are investing..this part of increase and decrease price is just a normal the same movement of the price last year..

The price is still trading around $900. Where did you see that Bitcoin had dropped back to $800? There seems not to be too much sell pressure right now, therefore the price could easily surge another 100 dollars in a matter of a few days, if not overnight. Bears have been heavily beaten down at $780-790 price level, and what's left of them is likely preparing to fight again around $1,000. It is more about how much demand is left there which determines how high the price might go.

It just dropped back to $890. It needs consolidation.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: ETH under 10$!!! on: December 10, 2016, 05:39:52 PM
Ethereum is going to keep declining until it slowly dies away. I don't think that it is possible to revive it any time soon, to a price level that is above the all time high of around 0.025 BTC per Ethereum. However, there still might be some small pumps along the way, but the general trend should be down.

Ethereum's technology is going to be replaced in the future, just like Litecoin. This just proves that the best technology doesn't matter, the reputation and the long track record of a cryptocurrency is what does matter.

yeah true..but i still think eth is good but worth too much..when price come to 1-2$ back,then its will be more used...8-10$ is over priced!

If you think the ETH at $10 is over priced, you should buy ETC, that is much cheaper although it does not have good development.

that is a terrible advice. because if you don't believe in ETH you should absolutely stay the hell away from ETC too because that is the fork and its survivability is even worse than ETH.

besides all coins are separate when it comes to pump and dumps and ETC is getting more and more away from ETH and both eventually die with small pumps on the way down, so choose then only when they are about to get pumped and don't pay much attention to the name.

You might be right. If the ETC uses the same technology as the ETH, then if ETH dies, the ETC will go with it.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: ETH under 8$!!! on: December 05, 2016, 05:31:04 PM
On ETH in near future we can expect the bull market. Problems will be resolved fully. I do not recommend opening any positions in margin trading, and wait for signals from developers.

How near is the near future? A week may be a long time in the crypto-world.
Ethereum might have its problems, but it occupies a niche space without any serious competition.

That will at least a few months away. There is no good news about the Ethereum development in the next few weeks.

To say exactly, no one can. I am referring to fact that we should not panic sell at price below 10$.

Maybe the whales will accumulate soon.
20  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin price to hit $1000 around June 2017 on: November 20, 2016, 02:12:58 PM
Too early to say that,all can happen in an instant. Bitcoin price could hit 1000$ by tomorrow,nezt week or may next month.and besides it was only a speculation. No proof yet.

Not so early to say. The bitcoin price is $750 at the moment. It is possible to rise $250 in the next 8 months.
