What is the temperature of your miners?
+-80° except for one chip that is 95°. I'm a bit worried about that one

2 Blades on My batch 1 S9 with auto tune firmware frequently run above 110deg in a well ventilated room, even when set down to 600mhz

If you don't mind m asking, what are you doing with your mined coins?

Saving? Selling on Luno/ ice3x etc, or selling on Localbitcoins.com ?

And what is your electricity rate?

Why would you suggest Luno to sell them? Undecided
I just heard about them yesterday and some are saying they are based out of France. So you would need some kind of bank account from there or in the EU to be able to withdraw those funds if you do use them to sell.
Yeah localbitcoins would be your best bet without having to fool around with submitting all you personal information just to be able to withdraw your bitcoin from your wallet with this exchanger. Embarrassed

Luno is a South African company that has gone multinational- you can do deposits and withdrawals into local South African accounts. Pretty much fuss free.

You do need to register and Fica , they are fully licensed, and as I understand it Naspers has a large stake in them. (Owners of DSTV, Multichoice, tencent,)

I've been using them since 2013 they used to be called bit-x

There is a big premium being charged by most traders in SA on localbitcoins

Hi there,

We are just starting out (small) and I am wondering if someone around Gauteng can invite us to look at their farms and extract some knowledge?

You can ask questions and I'll try to answer it. We are also still new, so we're no experts. We try to keep the farm's location private'

I can respect that you want to keep it private.

What are you running? S9s or Avalon's?

Pure bitcoin only or do you mine other crypto's too?

We have S9s and T9s. All going strong. I heard that the Avalon is more reliable, I don't know. Haven't used it. But we haven't had any trouble with our S9s and T9s. We had 6x S7s which is also great, but only 4.7TH/s. But you can get it fairly cheap in SA now.

 I give up on bit-x aka luno, after they charge me 0.0002btc on each mining reward deposit Sad

xapo is a good choice.  But we use both. We started with luno. But are exploring with xapo

Have you considered using alternative cooling method as opposed to the traditional air cooling? I'm using a storage room in my office for miners but the noise is sometimes unbearable even though we have servers running in the same room with nice temperatures.

Haven't yet, wasn't necessary. What cooling are you thinking about?

This is a good example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xo0g2dKPAcQ

It's a good way to improve efficiency but it seems risky for the boards as there's a chance of damaging it. Aside from that, it's quite a nice addition if you don't want to add more miners.

That looks risky. Best is to get fresh air in and the hot air directly out. That works for us. No fans, no aircon
