Well, I'm sort of mining. Luckily, my friend never really shuts off his comp, so I get to use his comp, electric bill free. Unfortunately, due to the lack of any kind of modification, it's abysmally slow. Try bitcoinplus.com . It's a browser-based mining site.

I'm curious if the Alpha Technology scrypt asic rig is actually a real thing or just some scam to get peoples pre-order $

No idea about how serious or scammish it is, but there's something that must be kept in mind in the CPU/GPU/FPGA vs ASIC question:

Imagine a new altcoin coming up (think DOGE*), but with a slightly modified scrypt algo (think Jane...), or a new one (i.e. XPM, QRK...)

  • CPU/GPU miners just need to update the mining software,
  • FPGA miners need to reprogram their FPGA,
  • ASIC miners need to replace/upgrade (at least partly) their hardware!

* not implying that DOGE is the alt coin of the future...

Good point.

With scrypt ASICs on the horizon i was thinking about going ASIC rather than building another GPU rig.
At the end of the day GPU rigs for "generic" mining and ASICs for "specialized" mining is prob the way to go.

Nah, don't mine doge. It's had it's day. Either do Lotto/CHN (which seem to be doing ok on profitability) or go for a new coin like Moon, Earth, etc.

Mining for a while now, got together with few friends and built a rig with 4 r9 280x, getting decent hashes Smiley

Started off with Mining LTC now it varies between LTC and a few ALTcoins.

Hi all,

Coin n00b here.

Just started to mine with one 7970. It's not much but definitely way better than nVidia cards.

I would like to be able to mine but the electricity bill simply becomes too damn high. I wish there was a way for all of us to mine together, however low of a hash rate as long as a minimum was met, and received a good amount of coins.

I suppose that would be too effortless but I'm sure if another successful alt-coin was to be produced a more communal delivery method would benefit.

I'm doing a bit of mining, Alt-coins more for me since i don't have the GPU power. Currently i have 3 laptops going fulltime. and my rig which is just a nicer gaming pc.
i only have a gtx 550 though so i can't scrypt mine yet, i'm stuck with CPU mining. but soon i'll get some 6950's. I also just picked up a block erupter for a hell of it.
and i also have a few cloud Miners, so i have like 7 miners total. (only bringing in about 15DATA coin every 25hr.) i'm hoping to trade them for something else and work my way up.
i bought into bitcoin a few weeks ago and got like .05 (nothing crazy) took it to BTC-E and started trading around for primex (XPM) and got up to .07. i just got .1 more. trading is where it's at!


but yeah mining is cool, i was doing primecoin. now i'm doing data. i might switch to prime again or something else. Litecoin is the way i'll most likely go when i get the 6950'sBTC Cool

mining on a multipool, trading for BTC.  i miss the days of BTC mining pre-ASIC and fear the same will happen to scrypts.  It's a brave new world

Anyone get close to 1BTC/day? If not, how long do you think it would take to get 1BTC from mining. I know it is depend on the mining hardware. Does anyone has a reliable spec for hardware to mine?

Lol....ok....well this guy is earning around 1BTC per day

http://middlecoin2.s3-website-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/reports/1QABREeywTMZEGCwRocBdPn37WddpxDAhC.html

...and is running around 85Mh/s

...so you'll only be needing 130 x 7950's running at 650kh/s each

...130x$200 = $26000 and thats just for the graphics cards, not server hardware and not even thinking about cost of power

Still up for mining !!!?  Grin

As soon as ASIC for scrypt kicks in i will switch to something ASIC resistant. Would love to see a coin that uses our CPU power for something benefitial, but something truly benefitial, not like finding primenumbers. Something like finding cancer cure.
