I have access to a "SHIT-LOAD" of power to mine,
and want to get back into the cryptocurrency business...

How to find out what "Altcoins" have a market? (a market, in terms of, are worth to mine and aren't a struggle to get exchanged into BTC afterwards)

What I look for in an altcoin:
>a market: SELLING the coin for Bitcoins/PayPal isn't a struggle...
>mining difficulty: The difficulty shouldn't be something like Litecoins, for example, what is basically considered a waste of power/time (you get me)

How to find out if an altcoin has a market // whether or not it is worth to mine it. Looking for experienced people to tell me where I can find answers to those questions.

Litecoin and DOGE maybe?  You can trade both of those with ease on all the exchanges.  The other ones?  Forget about it, the markets are thin as can be for the most part.  Even the market for Dash on Yobit is thin, though I know they're a relatively small exchange.  I don't think 99% of altcoins have a future outside of the initial pump & dump anyway so most aren't worth mining.

Ether is the most profitable coin to mine right now.

LTC/Doge got a high difficulty by now - no?
How about Ether? Does that have a high difficulty?

Plug in your mining specs, have the website calculate which coins are the best to mine, in near real-time format. All coins with a similar hashing algorithm should be fairly similar though. Please note though that if you are plugging a lot of hashing onto a lower power network, the difficulty could raise significantly, though I'm sure you are well familiar with this.

High volume altcoins like ETH tend to have a high difficulty.

Thanks for this. I've bookmarked this link and I'll use this when I bought a mining hardware.
