New Scale:
  • Very Big: >=10% of network hash rate
  • Big: >=1% of network hash rate
  • Medium: >=1/1000 of the network hash rate
  • Small: >=1/10,000 of the network hash rate
  • Tiny: >= 1/100,000 of the network hash rate
  • Very Tiny >=1/1,000,000 of the network hash rate
  • Null: < 1/1,000,000 of the network hash rate

At the current network hash rate of 21.3 TH/s, that corresponds to:
  • Very big: over 2.13TH/s
  • Big: over 213GH/s
  • Medium: over 21.3GH/s
  • Small: over 2.13GH/s
  • Tiny: over 213MH/s
  • Very Tiny: over 21.3MH/s
Edit:
Mining with 7 5870s at 400Mhash each for a total of 2.8Ghash.
...

So does that make us small? I want to be a medium sized miner!! Wink
yes. Wink


I'm almost Tiny, I lack 13Mh/s, but waiting for a couple of jalapeños.

lol, still waiting for someone to say "oh, just the regular under 18 kind."  Get it, miner/minor? Tongue speaking of that, I think there are zero people who aren't around my age (mid 20's) in the bitcoin community, rofl.  This reminds me of DDO.

Anyway, not mining atm but I used to be a high overclocking GPU miner.  Now I'm just waiting for a working, glitch-free, low failure rate ASIC that's proven to work to be released before I get one.  Hmmm what classification would that be...oh yeah, "smart miner" lol.

small and do it just for fun, I came into the mining scene WAY to late to be a big miner. 

Its good to know that mining has paid for my gaming desktop

Tiny miner. 2 card at around 500 mhash. Im slow, but its going Smiley. I have high hopes for the future of bitcoin. In about 2 weeks I will be ordering a 60 g/hash device. Have 1 jally on preorder. Mining its a growing process I believe. Start with a few devices, and continue to reinvest. We'll see how it goes Smiley

I see 3rd degree burns in your future with all that mining going on in your pants...

I started out June 2011 as a small miner with 1 6970. Since then I've owned, traded, and mined with 5770s, 6770s, 5870s, 5970s , 6990s, 7970s and BFL singles. My currenent configuration is 9 singles and 3 7970s. I'd like to think of myself as a med miner but some of you guys mine hard!

I've been mining away on a 5770 for a year and a half now.. I remember thinking how bad the jump up to 500,000 diff was.. doesn't seem so bad now. But I still missed all the real fun before that when the GPU miners first came out. It's been amusing to play around with though and hope it continues to grow.

This poll is great I'd love to see a follow up pole on how many Ghash you wanna have when ASIC hits...

Why did I sell at $5! Come back to me my old bitcoin! 1GjeBGS4KrxKAeEVt8d1fTnuKgpKpMmL6S

small for fun.

I'm a tiny miner, averaging a little under 200MH/s on a 5770 I already had. Kinda wish I'd looked into mining 6 months ago, but oh well.

I have been averaging 210MH/s on each 5770.  300MHz memory, 950MHz core, 1.1V.  I bought two for $100 each when I found out about bitcoin a little over a year ago (I only had nVidia cards back then).  Mined in a pool for a bit until I had $200 worth of BTC to justify buying the hardware instead of coins directly, then I mined solo when the pool I was in kept going down because of lack of maintenance.

I've been mining away on a 5770 for a year and a half now.. I remember thinking how bad the jump up to 500,000 diff was.. doesn't seem so bad now. But I still missed all the real fun before that when the GPU miners first came out. It's been amusing to play around with though and hope it continues to grow.

I learned about bitcoin after GPUs were already mainstream.  I then forgot about it for a while with my 2x5770 just running in the background, and last week just used the 2 lucky blocks I found to pre-order a bASIC.  Haven't been paying attention to difficulty, I didn't even notice I found the second block solo until 3 months after when I needed to reboot my computer.
