 Sad Thanks for all the quick responses - though not what I wanted to hear!!!

Just bought Antminer S1 for £250.  Currently mining at 0.007682/day, though there have been two v long blocks on Slush this week. With elec costs here in UK of £1/day I reckon that gives ROI of 154 days ignoring any increase in difficulty or change in £/BTC.

As you say, more entertaining than profit earning (and talking to a nice bunch of guys like you!).

But I still ask the question - what should I upgrade to , to make some money? 

Couldn't find any info (in English) on Xia-T-Hash!  Anyone any experience of Miners Cube?

There is the new S3 coming out in a few days but all depends what price they decide on, I've had my S1 since the end of march and still have a way to go to break even.

Just as well I mine for fun  Smiley

Are you really getting .007686/day? Is the S1 overclocked? You may have noticed a difficulty change in the last few days, recalculate your average since the change and you may find it is more like .005/day.

I also got an S1 recently, but mine came from Amazon and cost loads more. When I plugged the power into blade 2 there was a bang and a flash and one of the capacitor cans flew across the room, a new one is on the way but in the meantime I am hashing with half an S1.

Where did you buy an S1 for £250? that seems a great price.

Looks like the time to start modding my S1's to maintain maximum profits as I am now needing to add more hash power to my farm in order to keep my daily reward close to where it was before.

What percentage was the last difficulty increase? Knowing that should give me a good figure for how much I need to increase my hash rate.
I think I would rather see the 4 Ph/s over the 3.4 we are pushing now...if the pool doesn't grow with the network, the pool WILL get left behind.  Undecided

Slush,

any thoughts to adding multiple payout addresses, similar to GHash.IO? This would be a way to drive bitcoin GB miner to your group. Some kind of interface so a GB operator could just set up the shares and the payouts would go weekly to all members of the group... This would be a good differentical in the mining market place and might increase your revenues.

BFF miner is not seeing any of your hardware so you are not mining.  The new block detected means the network has resolved a block and we are all working on the next. And by we I mean the entire bit coin network.

Basically right now your are not mining with Bfg but monitoring the network. What ASIC are you trying to run?

Hope that helps.

Namnuta is absolutely right you are not mining and no hardware is listed in CGminer window.

Try this, in CGminer window type the letter "m" then the plus key "+" then "all" and hit return. it will refresh and list the hardware and info.



As far as I can tell, that would only work in BFGMiner. But there is indeed nothing mining.

Which is this hardware that is not listed? That isn't well explained in main site http://mining.bitcoin.cz/ I'm sure that i have read and do all successful but for some reason nothing appears to me about mining and earning my account?! letter "m" does not work in CGminer window - nothing happens. I dont know what is wrong i just want to join the mining pool to work together

So what kit can I buy right now <$5k that will get me a reasonable ROI on capital outlay taking into account electricity costs?

bitmaintech.com

S3 will be realeased in 2 days... you are walking in at the perfect time.  This is hands down the best mining company, buy an S3.. or 4.. be very happy.

I have 4 S1's I love them.

Couple questions...

What mining hardware?
What OS for the controlling system?
What mining software?

Answer those and I am sure we can help you get to mining quickly.
Also, might I suggest www.multiminerapp.com?

I am at least 2 weeks from being able to make my next purchase...most likely a couple more S1 units and mod those so that I can push ~1 Th/s but on 1/2 the watts!

I am picking up a small scrypt asic setup to keep my "mine" diversified and versatile!

.007686 my running average since 12 June 2014.  No not clocked - running between 175-185 GH/s.  Last 2 or 3 days been pants, but we've just had a 7min block (whoopee!) and 14 June was agood day.

Got mine for £253 inc postage via Amazon sourced from HAD Systems in Germany.  Ordered 9 June arrived in UK on 11 June.  On 11 June Amazon were selling same from Studio K34 for £249 (not sure how much postage).  Just checked - that is now mysteriously £319!!!

I'm relatively lucky. I've been mining since February using 10 Antminer U1/U2s. Since I pay nothing for my electricity (it's included in the rent), I've already broken even between the mining and using the various faucets. My total investment is the miners and three powered USB hubs.

Seems like every night (CST) we climb back up to the 4371 Thash/s mark. Wish whoever would just leave it pointed this way so we could work through some of these long rounds quicker.  Huh

1st time I noticed we went above 4000 TH was a couple of days ago, prior to that the highest I had seen was 3800 TH and normal peak was 3600 TH that would then drop down to 2600 TH

...and, by the time those are paid off, will you have enough to buy the next latest and greatest, will it ever end? no.

Actually, I should be able to keep my toes in the mining game for quite awhile so long as I make smart investments.

It's just good to know what percentage increase I am needing to shoot for just to keep up with what I have, if not increase any.
