Hello Community,

I have an old ASICminer Block Erupter Cube (http://www.amazon.com/ASICMiner-Block-Erupter-Cube-Miner/dp/B00H8K3MZU) which used to mine with ~35GH/S for BTC. Do you think I could use this miner and reconfigure it to mine ETH? If yes, what amount of ETH could I expect per day/week/month?

Could you help me how to reconfigure it?

Thanks in advance and have a great day!

No, you cannot do this... An ASIC (like the block erruptor you're talking about) is made to generate 1 type of hashes... In this case sha256.
It's especially built to do this task, and this task alone. Hence, it is not possible to make it hash a different algorithm.
