I put my r9 nanos up for sale


https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1517154.0


with luck they will sell close to asking price

I am going to convert to 480's and 490's when they come.

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

No I am mining as I type.  4 nanos and 1 his. So  my hope is to sell these off in time for the 480's and 490's
I am roi'd.  I spend 140 on power  right now I earn 360 so I  220 net  a month.

I mine at ethpool

This morning I noticed that after the DOA hack, the diff level seems to eased up (lower diff)

I think my rigs are able to meet the credit required for 5 ETH, faster than normal time

this means, mining has dropped?

Is this assumption true?

If I provided you good and useful info or just bring a smile to your day, consider sending me merit points to further validate this Bitcointalk account ~ useful for future account recovery...

I think Philip mentioned a group buy (US only), in his earlier post.

Let me know how it goes on the sale date so that I can contact my supplier here.

This was a great idea, to use you previous rigs for a new alt coin that they can mine better!
It may attract newbies to mining if they are able to afford/find spare GPUs which will help the altcoin networks.
There appears to be a large "Patch/hole" in the Ethereum network which will hopefully be solved soon!

it might be a little down, but it might be variance too.
here is a better chart

That gives some hope

If huge farms (11GHs) are still in biz - mining still makes sense

Could be the heat (I've had heat-limit issues here the last couple weeks intermittantly).
Could be a few folks dropping out or switching to something else after the price collapsed (it's recovered a LITTLE today).
Could just be normal variation.

 Could be more than one of the above.



 I blame sunspots (which isn't totally insane, they affect solar output and a big enough flare in theory could hash up the ionosphere enough to cause a higher noise level slowing down WiFi.)

I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

The difficulty has risen again. How is your heat wave problem, is that relieved a bit. I am surprised people are still adding hashing power now.

In NM we expect hottest week since summer.

I hope that big miners know smth that we dont know - so I'm going to follow them for a week (at least)

Yeah 110f or higher correct?

I am shutting down all eth miners today and will wait to see the r9 480's

I sold my 4 nano's and the last r9 390.

Once I pack up the gear I will have room for 2+2+2+2+3+4= 15 cards  I am not sure how much lower power will be or what mh will be.

but 15 x 125 = 1875 watts

and 15 x 25 = 375 mh

I think that is the  worst case numbers

Hopefully 110F will be at AZ only Smiley
But I heard that we will have 102-106F

I probably will start selling mine 4 R9 390 on ebay

Great thread phillip, can't believe I've taken so long to get around to looking at the Mining (Altcoins) thread again. I had to do a double take on your post saying you downsized instead of going asic-purchase crazy like you did back in the day Smiley

Feeling a bit inspired atm and looking forward to seeing what kind of system(s) I can piece together when I get back stateside.

well  at 59 I can't work as hard as I did. Plus the wife is retired soI need to give her more time.

The gpus are all out of the house and sold.  So a 10-14 day no gpu mining time for now.

I will set up the 3rd and 4th   s-9's at the array this week.

Then get back to buying the r9 480's

I am hoping to do the big order from provantage 50x of them.  I am still waiting for the order number skew to hit their system.  I hope to get a 10-20% discount if the cards are a hot item.

How much profit did you make from the GPU mining rigs?  I think you sell them as the gaming rigs? Right?
