Hey, i'm not long into the mining business and i have some questions.

I finished my first mining rig with 6x Gtx1080ti 11GB and now i ask myselft, what is the best way to mine.

I found Nicehash, and i really like it that they pay you out directly in BTC.
When you mining directly in a pool for just one currency, for example ETH or Zcash, you have to check the market prices every day and you need to exchange them with fees and a lot of work.
So why not everyone is using nicehash? Do you earn much more money when you mine directly?
And are you switching between the coins manually?
Thanks

A few downsides.

- Like you mention, you make less. Nicehash takes a cut for being the middleman.
- I am not 100% sure if nicehash uses the latest, most optimized miner, so another few % slower because of slower miner.
- You can't tweak GPUs to optimal settings, since each algo need different core and mem for best performance and best hash/watt ratio. Using a stable setting for all coins means poor optimization, another 2-5% loss.
- Nicehash may not support the most profitable coins.


In short yes, we earn more by mining ourselves. Sometimes ALOT more, usually 5-10% more.

Hey guys, I'm running 3 GTX 1080Ti's (All of them are Asus Strix OC edition)... any how, after I upgraded to the latest 384.94 drivers, everything is fine and dandy.  However, now I noticed that the GPU connected to the monitor is running significantly slower than the other 2, it's running at 1569mhz, no matter what I change in MSI afterburner, yet the other two are running at 1860. 

Any ideas?  Has anyone else encountered this? (GPU connected to the monitor is mining slower, or won't run in "Boost mode")? 

Other notes, I'm running CCminer Skein on Windows 10.

Connect your monitor to you main board instead of your GPU. It made a difference for me.

Don't mine at Nicehash. Mine at pool and wait for good prices before selling.

Nicehash is good for the "auto" mode, let the rig on and forget about it, a pratical solution.

Mining specific alts demand too much time, reading etc, only few cases worth mining those pump and dump coins.

Assuming LBRY has a good launch of their app, I feel like the coin has decent upside. Not going to make you rich but nice to mine

DGB seems alright too, although it's path to hitting 10* cents is less clear than LBRY's path to a dollar IMO

This is what i do on which i dont really bother myself on setting up things or making the situation more complicated since i can able to mine with use of nicehash. Saves you from hassle and just like that you are being spoonfeed already. Read some words and understand it,just really a simple thing. Usually i do mine coins with low difficulty or which my video card would made a smart mining which coins is being profitable to mine.

I'm still seeing ~300/day on digi-skein on miningpoolhub, it's certainly fluctuated more lately though.  Also my hash can vary from 900-1050 with seemingly minor tweaks and if i'd been running a different miner beforehand.

Oh ok, probably there's just something wrong with my setup. Thanks

Everyone is profit mining SIGT and dumping it.  What do you expect to happen?  There were tends of thousands of rigs pointed at the coin for a period of time and all of those miners were immediately dumping their coin.

Expect SIGT to stay in the current price range through the first halving unless there's significant movement on the platform or other good news.

People need to be aware that every 1080ti can't do same thing.   I been doing overclocking for almost 10+ years since 6600gt agp.   It can be very annoying example why i can't hit 4 ghz with the core2duo 6750 when the reviewers easily hit 4.1 Ghz.  I just got unlucky with the silicon lottery.  The only product that overclocked good was  the Phenom II 1055t and the 6600GT.   With my collections of 1080 ti I do easily notice the difference.  Some can hit 130+ some can't even get past 90+.

Don't just push it because someone can.  I keep a short test log for groups to speed up the testing time.  It will be annoying if you go away for a while and found out you lost over 8 hours of mining work because of an unstable overclock.
