Hi All, i was wanting to get a bit more advice before i take the plunge and invest in a home mining setup. I've been mining for a few years, mainly ethereum, xmr, and zcoin just on my gaming rigs over the years and have saved up a few thousand pounds. I'm now looking at setting up my home mining operation but really torn between a couple of gpu mining rigs, or waiting and investing in a few of the bitmain l3+ that are due to get shipped at the end of july. I was just wandering whats the most popular for you guys at home? The l3+ will produce a lot better profits for scrypt mining at 500mh, but will be stuck on scrypt and if the currency im mining switches algos im effectively left with a few £1k paperweights, if i go for the gpu rig i have the ability to mine pretty much any currency just with a lot lower rate.

On a further note i have read a lot of complaints about bitmain recently and the quality of the products they have sent out, anything broken often taking over a month to replace with them being situated in china which would have a big effect on any profits, any gpu rig i build will be from amazon or ebuyer so anything broken will be easier and quicker to replace. But also the problems people have been getting more than 5 amd 570/580 working together, and having to flash them back to 470 drivers, but im guessing this will get worked out over the next month or two with new drivers and updates from amd, so probably july also before the 6 gpu rigs are running stable and at their full potential.

I'm just looking into mining alt currencies and not bitcoin as i don't think i will have the money to buy enough hardware to compete with any of the current mining operations, i also get pretty cheap electricity at the minute and only paying 7pkwh plus a large credit on my account due to a mistake they made so for the next year should work out around 5pkwh probably a little cheaper.

So the question, whats the preferred option for you guys at home doing this? will anyone be making the investment on the bitmain l3+ or sticking to gpu rigs?

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Ive just had a read of your topics there and some quite good information on running the 1080/1070 rig, would you say the extra cost for the 1080ti for the extra sols is worth it, considering extra cost and extra power used by the cards? and without going to much into your finances how much profit a day do you get from your nvidia rigs after electricity costs? i think i remember reading somewhere you were setting a solar array up, did that go to plan?

Ill say this;  the 1070, and 1080 make a killing mining skein...

http://zpool.ca/?address=1kLsGT9egk3utSKZH46ydTbKj5oMnmBoN 6x1080, 1x1070 and 6x1080 (i think 6x is the last count);  idk if he returned one or not.

zpool is notorious for paying 30% less, you will make less than whattomine known coin, it's better to mine lbry or zcash with your card, also skein2 is bugged with the diff retarget that don't work in case you want to know

ok, you say this, based on what evidence?

The estimates given that are based off the market which has serious swings in coins (let's say an average of 10-30%?)  seem like just a coincidence?

Also;  zpool only uses only a few exchanges, so it doesn't have the error of other exchanges that could or couldn't get that sale, plus the human factor involved as well....

Just because your early-on "ESTIMATED EARNINGS" wasn't what you got paid in the end;  doesn't mean the pool is ripping you off man.  The pool will see its generated coins for whatever price it can get to pay its miners; which means fufilling buy orders at lower than market rate sometimes.   

You have to think deeper into what you don't fully understand.....

I personally have yet to be shorted by zpool.  Any time a payout never made it or was delayed;  it was handled.... as long as it was a controllable aspect.  Obviously if you chose an altcoin for a payout and didn't tell the pool that in the password field... and the pool sends a payment to the BTC network instead because of this;  it's not the pools fault, nor can the TX be reversed.  That's just logic.

When I see dips in my earnings (such as a few days ago) you could clearly see that DGB and AUR lost nearly half their value in the matter of hours.   is the pool supposed to magically credit you for the losses in the exchange ESTIMATES?   That's silly to think that way.....

There's logical explanations if you do the legwork to find out why;  instead of just randomly speculating and pointing a finger at the closest person/thing.
