I'm surprised at so many Legendary posters here today.

I guess the n00bs all ran back home to their fiat.

And the legacy finance trolls have not yet created their new accounts.

The rest of us are here for an online support group.

BTC Dominance: 44.2% --- It is rising .1 each half an hour.... (or, in other words, alts keep deflating at a way faster rate)

You know that run up to the time you finally, but gently launch up from the bed and stagger, eyes watering, to the toilet... get on your knees, throw back the lid and take a couple more cold, short breaths before you wretch your guts out.  Probably three, maybe four good spasms of agony and acrid taste, then a couple more deep breaths, and of course the encore as you struggle to even produce much more than thick drool with each dry heave.

And finally... you feel the incessant misery that has been building up for an hour receding as you stagger up and rinse out your mouth.  It's over.  And you are going to be OK damn it.  In fact you will be just fine.

Well.

We are not quite to that time yet, I am sorry to say.

But it is very close.

And when we are all done, and about to tuck back in bed to rest peacefully...

One of you.

Will be able to ask:

"Who sold at the bottom!?!?"
Me. I sold at the bottom, at the time. That was 500 bucks ago or so. Waiting for a new bottom to rebuy.

As we said on the way up, buying an alt is like buying BTC on margin. Great when the price is going up but on the way down...not so good.

Good evening all. I dont know what you all are doing but if bitcoins price is any indicator, I hope some are enjoying the night with some adult libations.

Overview of March of 2017 and the following year. It was a dismal March last year as well..it turned very quickly right at the end of the month as I recall.


I think there is a chance we could test support below what we are seeing today but also believe that many are starting to think that coins are looking cheap again. Hang in there...the tide will turn.

I doubt it.  ~7200 *could* be though.  But that's the first stop.

Capitulation on my part has set in. A couple of days ago I even gave up hobby mining with my GPU. Less than 15000 sats per day on my 1070 just didn't seem worth it. Maybe I'll take up gaming now.

No (altcoins) GPU mining profitable at current prices? When was the last time that happened?

I haven't eaten in 6 days.


Actually on purpose...but it is appropriate. Maybe at the 10 day mark I will finish the fast and the sun will once again shine on Bitcoin. Like how after Jesus fasted for 40 days he came out and everything worked out just fine...

It's still profitable, but barely. A 1080ti, which cost anywhere from $650-$1,300, is making a little over $1 per day, after electricity costs.

Guys,  I have consulted the Epitome of Divination on the subject of Bitcoin to put our minds at ease, allow our souls to rest easy and also to get some of us eating again...

There may be some hidden gem out there, but from what I can tell, mining with a Nvidia 1070 just isn't worth it, for me. Especially if you take into consideration the accelerated wear and tear on your GPU. I'd need to mine for 2 years with the current conditions just to make up the cost of the GPU and the electricity. Naturally, the "current" conditions are not going to hold for 2 whole years. It is likely to deteriorate to the point where my GPU would fry before ever making up the cost. At least my one and only GPU is attached to a computer. All I need to do is get into gaming. However, the last time that I was really into gaming, Ms Pac-Man was a thing. Cheesy

So it is basically not worth it, ok. But... is that something that happens every once in a while? I am trying to extrapolate what happened past times when a similar point of unprofitability was reached.

Ie: If the price started recovering soon or if the hashrate just kept going down until profitability.

I've been mining since 2011. During these downturns, you can make money speculative mining.

For instance, bitcoin GPU mining became unprofitable in early 2012 around the time it hit $2. However, you could've mined quite a bit of coins from a new upstart called Litecoin. You would've been mining at loss at the time.

There was the great altcoin boom of 2013-2014, which was very lucrative for mining. After that market took a shit, the only things that were marginally profitable to mine were Monero and DASH. Mining either one of those would've made you a lot of money.

So, here we are in another downturn. I'm not sure what the next LTC, XMR, or DASH is, but it's out there.

I'm disappointed that you, of all the distinguished gentlemen in this fine room, didn't come up with some fascinating, food-for-thought explanation.

What's to explain? This feels pretty pedestrian to me.

Interesting. But as you say many of the times it was just "barely profitable" at the time of mining, no matter if it pumped hard some time later (you could have just bought the coins instead)... Not that I can extrapolate anything I guess Sad
