Come on Slush Poolers we need to hit that 6.3 PH sweet spot that seemed to be so lucky.

Hello Everyone!  I'm a newbie here, I've been mining for about a week and a half, and I've got to say it's been a BLAST!   Wish I'd found this sooner!   Slush Pool it my first and only pool so far!   Yesterday was great, today not so.  But I guess that's the rollercoaster we're all on.

Anyway, looking forward to learning and having fun!

if its learning you want, take a week and read this entire thread and you will know all there is to know about bitcoin mining.

Because we found very few blocks? I think it's called variance.

Whats up everyone?
     
Im new to the pool and have just decided to get into mining for a hobby and see where it goes. I have a hunch that Bitcoin is going to see new limits in future!

I have 4 Antminer U2+ units, a rasberry b+ unit on its way as we speak. I know its nothing compared to you guys running S3's and higher, but every little bit helps, Right? I bought a couple coins when it hit about $413 USD last week and the slight upswing over the past few days pretty much paid for this small package of hardware I have on the way already. Ive been following Bitcoin for a few years, reading about and following the market avidly.

I know how the pool system works and im sure I can find answers to any questions i come up with in the 890+ pages, might take a month to get through it but its already taught me a lot.
   
Sold the PS4 ( I had not used the damn thing since last December) and put the money towards this hobby. Im already addicted and dont even have my gear yet. I can already see myself blowing money on new gear in the future even if I dont get an ROI. Worth it in my opinion.

Welcome to the cool kids club!  Cool Cool
I enjoy mining as well...just as much, if not more than when I first discovered BTC mining

Hi Guy's I joined the pool a little over a week ago, starting with my GPU and bought my first Antminer U2 yesterday.. i get that my measly 2.2gh/sec is nothing on your setup's but looking at my esitmated 0.00000849 BTC per block, if i was to purchase say 9 more U2's would my estimated rise 9 fold? This is purely hobby fascination project lol... I'm only snapping up U2's which people are selling as no more interest in there hobby anymore to reduce outlay... as i find this mining hobby quite a good thing to follow and take part in....
Now i have also found a community as well Cheesy

antminer u1/u2 are still returning (uk) about 2.17 /1  over electricity cost.
If you can get them very cheap, then there is some life still in them.

expect the return over electricity to drop by about 30% per month

so that is 2.17/1 for August
              1.52/1 for September
              1.06/1 for October
              0.74/1 for November

Sometimes I worry about the environmental impact caused by mining.

Every time a disruptive mining technology enters the market, the mining equipment the rest of us holds gradually becomes useless and ends up in landfill a couple of years later.  There's probably already tens of thousands of PCBs in landfill from us already.  x86 or ARM-based motherboards can be re-purposed some of the time, but these ASIC boards cannot.

If you are doing this to have fun, congrats. If you are doing this because you think you are making any BTC amount you can do anything with, sorry. U2 are a total waste of time..unless you enjoy microscopic amount of Bitcoin. you will never make back your investment unless you pay nothing for electricity and you got them for free. But, 9 times nothing is still nothing.

It's like musical chairs. The last one has no place to sit...ie has a worthless piece of hardware. Food chain works like this:

Mining hardware manufacturer first mines his own cutting edge tech for 2 months
Then sells machines to general public as 'new'
Miners mine for 2-3 months if smart and then sell while the get more for the hardware than the machines can make mining
Low man on totem pole mines for months and (maybe) figures out he now has a worthless hunk of metal
end of story.

Of course, the game changer would be if BTC all of a sudden doubled or more in value.

Sometimes I worry about the environmental impact caused by mining.

Every time a disruptive mining technology enters the market, the mining equipment the rest of us holds gradually becomes useless and ends up in landfill a couple of years later.  There's probably already tens of thousands of PCBs in landfill from us already.  x86 or ARM-based motherboards can be re-purposed some of the time, but these ASIC boards cannot.
Mmmmm not quote. You ever been to a computer hardware recycling center? They strip those machines apart, and reuse almost everything out of them. The plastics get melted and reused. The copper gets stripped and reused. The wire insulation gets ground up and repurposed. The silicone gets ground up and recycled. About 98% of any piece of electronics (phones,tvs,computers,miners,etc) are made up of the same dozen or so materials. Why would we dump all of those materials into a landfill, and then mine the earth for more?

Well, this isn't really pool related but I'm offering to UK pool members.  I'm going to give away my last S1 soon when my next pair of S3's arrive.  I'm keeping the power supply because it can power 2 S3.

I'm in Berkshire.  I will not post it.  If someone wants it when I'm done they're welcome to come and collect it.

Thanks.

Sometimes I worry about the environmental impact caused by mining.

I think it's up to us to lessen the impact on the environment...and as mining operations get more massive, I foresee solar, wind, and
hydro generation as a necessity.  In fact, that will fast become the most profitable kind of mining operation because you're not only
mining bitcoin, but also electricity, which will mean in the future bitcoin mining operations will probably be closely linked with energy
generation as a matter of necessity.

In this way, I'd say Bitcoin is a hell of a lot greener than oil, and inspires progress in "green" technology, rather than raping our planet
for it.

Please add more BTC here (my son will apprecciate it when he's older): 14WsxbeRcgsSYZyNSRJqEAmB1MKAzHhsCT

Good post from a forward thinking individual.
