Back to back mega elec bills with my AC running and I've had to shut off all but my USB stick miners.  I'll fire the S3 boxes back up this winter.  GL, solo miners!

In the CK Solo pool, how do you know when you've hit a block?  25 Btc in your wallet?

You can also monitor the pool's thread or your miner's status. Maybe there's a way to get a mail notification but you'll have to ask in ck pool solo's thread.

you are puttign to much hash for solo, i mean how much energy are you using for hoping for one block?.

i have an s3 coming so i prentend only to have a s3 mining solo rest will keep on mining.

You need to make something if you got money on the machines and wasting energy for " nothing ".

I say that 14th is alot for hoping on solo , put one machine for lottery and get some cash for the rest   Smiley


You can never put "too much" energy into solo mining. Remember, all it takes is one hash!


I really get a kick out of reading you guys running solo rigs and supporting the cause. "They said it couldn't be done. We proved them wrong!"


Another little update. I was bleary eyed this morning and opened my miner's page to look at the shares. He said, "Best Share 562,331,786" and because I was tired I read three more placeholders in that number. So something like this:

562,331,786,948


And I thought...Whoah! This guys the best miner in the world! But then I blinked and saw "FoundBlocks = 0" and had to re-peek at that share number again. oh well, it was an exciting 30 seconds! LOL!


Keep on hashing guys!   Cheesy

-241USD per at the moment.
https://bitcoinwisdom.com/bitcoin/difficulty

-That unit is overpriced as hell.

-Your odds is a few years to one block. You'd be basically gambling.

Not recommended.

That depends on your electricity cost, budget, housing location. Give me/us more information and you will get a recommendation. The S4 isint bad, just the price its listed at is. And unless you're looking for a lottery, you will have to mine in a pool.

Most likely you would be better off to mine in a pool with the S4.  It's not a super efficient miner.  I would solo mine with something smaller then 1400 watts.

You could do it.  But most of us I think would suggest against it.

Not really 0.08 is a bit high and kind of in limbo right now with the S7 coming in but being too expensive and the S5 soon to be devalued. Depending on how much extra power you get from your solar array, then you could go for S4/S5 if obtained at a good price.

I'm not sure whats your true expense is on your solar array but if you have wasted electricity that you dont get to use. Go for it. There's also SP20 units and such. S5 is just easier to quiet down a bit.

More or less. I personally got more bang for buck getting a S4, on a GH/$ basis. However the S5 has 0.5~J/GH and the S4 is 0.7~J/GH. Which means per GH the S4 is less efficient. (Cost more to run per GH)

This is why what you pay for your electricity make all the difference. Over here i pay a flat rate up to a limit. So i pay nearly nothing for 2 kW, but the rate is 3~ to 5~cents per kWh for under and above 30kWh per day respectively, for residential and 3 to 2 cents per kWh for big industrial.

Daarn, You may not like it but - my friend - you don't know enough to start buying anything just yet. I'm sorry, but I want you to be successful and you won't be if you just jump in with both feet and eyes closed. The only thing you should do now is read, research, and learn. A good start is reading the first 2 pages of the forum here

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=14.0

And here

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=81

And finally the first two pages here

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=40.0



This should take you 2 days if you stick with it. A week if you like to sleep. Smiley  After that you will be able to ask good questions and we will be glad to help! Good luck!

P.S. I envy you living in Sweden. Beautiful country and beautiful women Smiley

Solo mining is alive and profitable!

0.08 cents per KW is fairly decent, its just below the profit line but you can still make some decent cash, also his solar panels would cancel out a large portion of the probelm
