Hi
read now alot of threat and see many people say it almost impossible to mine in your own house hold just becouse electric bill
But have discover that I have free power in a Storeroom that I rent and also that area have lots of free wifi:)

I read something about blockchain.info.
but didn't understand exacly what the problem with them where?


I'm not sure what you're really talking about, but for the prospect of mining in your house, that is pretty inaccurate. "Free electricity" certainly beat cheap electricity but mining on cheap electricity is very profitable.

Now, if you have wifi and a way to generate air flow to dump the heat outside, go right ahead. But i would recommend using your own wifi, otherwise you might find it pretty hard to manage your miner.

Any wallet that is controlled by another source (online, another person/company) can steal your bitcoins. There is no recourse. You lose.
They can also go down from time to time making it impossible for you to get to your coins. You should only use a local wallet like multibit or armory and encrypt your wallet.

If you really want to be safe, research armory cold storage.

Solo mining is alive and profitable!

Just start with something cheap. A small stick, gpu mining alt coins, maybe even CPU mining.

Use a software wallet, personally i use Multibit for BTC. SPV wallets are certainly the way to go for a new comer. Do a few transaction, figure out the value. Etc. Get a feel for it. I started my mining venture with a 560 ti on scrypt a while back.

That could be a nice cheap way to start, but have patience. It took me a month to mine a block and that was lucky. Most people quit after 1 or 2 weeks.

As for alt coins, I recommend against any alt unless you're just trying to play around. Alt coins are like dog food. Sure you can eat it, but it tastes like poop on a cracker. Bitcoins are like steak. Takes longer to prepare right, but so worth the wait.  Cheesy

Best how? They're loud, the SP20s are similar efficiency to S3. Then the bigger units are every louder and run on 240v on huge stuff. Its truly aimed at data center.

no sp20 is similar to s5 so you are way over the sea. the sp20 efficiency is really good, you can't compare the s3 to sp20 is like comparing a lada to mercedes.

Yes you two are both "Outdated". You are probably referring to the monster SP35  that does 5TH~... for 3.5kW. Now bitmain has 5TH~ for 1200W in a smaller unit.

And to be fair, 3 antminer S5 was still better than one SP35, size wise together they are smaller, less noise, take less power and cheaper.

bitmain has not delivered yet those machines.

noise wise is to who ever can stand the noise.


you are comparing a 1 year old machine to a machine that is not even out yet.


were is the logic in that...

You can place orders for it now and Bitmain doesn't do vaporware. But regardless i said S7 because thats the most current, but the S5+ fit the bill just as well, is already released and sold out AND also have better specs than the SP35.

Antminer S5+:
Hash Rate: 7722 GH/s ±5%


So regardless, Spoondoolies are NOT the biggest units.

Any more arguments? Smiley

you are still comparing 1year old machines to a month old or so machine, so i don't see what the logic in your argument is , as there is non...

Besides you are way offtopic.

Hey guys! Time for another update. Best share is up to 192,389,014 since last restart. I got bored with being in the 20m range for 2 days so I turned him off, waited 20 seconds, then turned him back on. 24 hours later he pulled the 192k. Cheesy


As they say in Game of Thrones, Winter is coming so after next week I'll be moving the farm to my shop, including my solo buddy. They really warm it up in there during the cold months so I'm able to work in comfort and make a little more BTC in the process.

Solo mining is alive and profitable!
