It strikes me as being short sighted if you only mine old miners when they will cover ROI if it's that close to the threshold. You either have to gamble on BTC going one way or the other and either leave them on or trash them. The longer you wait to possibly use them, the more worthless they become.

I will mine until my ant miners die...

DAMN THE COSTS FULL SPEED AHEAD!

+1 to that brother (or sister. whatever).

Unless BTC value starts to go up then I just cant justify the cost of replacing my ant farm.

I might try and power my rig by giant wheel and get the kids to run round it.  Smiley


I have just been looking at the BTC rate against GBP. It was £295 last time I looked and falling. Sad

Just curious, for those that pay attention to the pool stats,

Does the pool hashrate ever drop during a significant price drop in btc?   I've seen it drop after a few long rounds, but nothing related to price.



There will be a drop in hashrate when all the asic erupters become uneconomic in about 6 weeks.
The problem is, by that time, they will account for such a small percentage of the system, the drop will not be noticed.

It's unlikely the hash rate will drop.  As the old miners become obsolete, they are being replaced several times over in terms of hashing power by new machines.  When KNC ships their Neptune, the network hash rate will increase by at least 10 Petahash just with their devices.  All the block eruptors combined come no where near close to that.

Shoot I'm using S1s like clusters of USB erupters these days. If difficulty keeps rising were all moving into warehouses to keep up.  Grin

I suspect the unknowns are ASIC makers running their product covertly so as not to appear to be competing with the product they sell.

Iced tea. It's pretty warm in here with these miners turning hydro into noise.

Great.... It's no wonder Explorer is so slow. The embedded code in it mining BTC for them is to blame.  Grin

Take a screen shot and make it your desktop. It helps to desensitize you if you stare at it for a week.

Hey everyone, noobie here. Decided to join BTC mining just for fun and not for making money (though it should be good too). I used to do a lot of Folding and SETI back in the days, and when I saw some "affordable" ASIC miners, I decided to jump in and got myself a measly 4Gh total (2 USB Antminer U2)

So some questions here, I am using MultiMiner using the ASIC (I disabled GPU option) and it says I have 2Gh on each (under "Current" column), with 1.5Gh (under "Effective ") and total Gh shows as "3.1". These values fluctuate as well but not too far from those (give or take .1 to .2 difference). However, whenever I check the webpage, my hashrate shows less than 1Gh (i.e 875Mh as of last 10 rounds). I have been running them for 24Hrs now, so I don't know how many rounds that is.

My specs:
Two(2) Antminer U2 (2Ghz each), plugged to USB hub. No errors ($30 each), not overclocked
Host PC is an old Centrino laptop, running 2Ghz CPU, Win7 2GB RAM, connected to net with old WiFi (802.11g)
I use Stratum protocol
MultiMiner software, calling BFGMiner with standard parameters on COM3 and COM4

* So is it normal I get less than 1Ghz for 10rounds?
* Is using an old laptop on old WiFi a bad idea? (I can watch Netflix HD movies without hiccup, but huge file transfer is a no-no)
* Should I run these ASICs 24x7? Or do they die fast if I do run it like that?
* Should I wait for a week to get my actual hashrate?
* Why do my score keeps getting reset?

Thank you and sorry for noob questions
