(a) you are a low wage earner
(b) ah - 15 hours per month for overlooking a computer that is not accepting external connections behind a firewall? SERIOUSLY? This is more time than I spend to maintain a virtual server host + 30 servers including all updates. Replace that with 1 hour and you can talk. if after 2 months you still need to look after it for 15 hours a month something is REALLY BROKEN. With 1 hour per month you should be able to handle a RACK full of thouse computers.
Im not a miner, dont intend to be, Im an investor.
Im attempting a fundamental analysis like one would do determining the worth of a company and shares based on assets and float.
As im trying to put my finger on these numbers, Im thinking of the average miner.
Im guessing 20-35 Year old, may be in college or grad school, or freshly out, either underemployed or unemployed.
Has to build the system, no racks, very impromptu. This community stereotype is what I envision the current float of BTC has mostly been built off of.
Now I know there are some enterprise operations, and they are significant. Thats a whole other can of worms. Im shooting for the lowest common denominator in this factoring, where the ROI is probably the worst. Of course Im making some broad assumptions here, but that is why Im asking for corrections.
