I don't know if you should risk mining bitcoins at work that is usually a direct violation of many employers rules at least it is here in the United States. The risk reward isn't really to favorable, a few dollars a month in bitcoin or getting disciplined/fired from your job, i don't know I wouldn't risk it lol

No real stickminers go up too high, and in terms of hashrate, the gekkoscience compac is the best you'll get, like many others before me have said. The main reason is that USBs can't use much electricity and therefore don't create much hashrate with the little power that is usable, and second, the usb miner market has shrunk so much that it's not worth producing(at least what companies like bitmain and Avalon think).

If you're looking for just a quiet miner, the Antminer S3 can do. it's not terribly efficient, but it's quiet and pretty fast. The U3 is also an option if you're looking for even more compact machines. Otherwise, the USB market isn't looking good at all and i'd be surprised if any more from a manufacturer will ever be released.

It's not the USB miner market that has shrunk...it's the AVAILABILITY of ASIC chips to MAKE miners has shrunk  Roll Eyes

ASIC makers are keeping the shovels for themselves  Sad

Go GPU mining,takes awhile to ROI if your not up on the altcoins,but it makes more BTC with less power,for me at least  Wink
Besides that, stickminers also don't generally sell as well as full miners in most cases; i'm sure that's one of the variables that lead to this. Hopefully there'll be more in the future, stickminers have always been great things to toy around with. GPU mining ROI is relatively quick and offers a good resell price; it's an okay idea to try gpu mining if you already haven't. Used GPUS also make great gaming rigs if you decide not to use the gpus anymore, that's what I did with my old rig. Smiley

I am not sure you can do GPU mining at the office without incurring additional cooling costs, however small that may be.

Yeah and depending on where you work you will get fired for that.  Large corporations don't like utilizing company machines for potentially illegal activity and making profits off their equipment.  Also you will only make pennies a month so its really pointless if you ask me lol
