Quick update for anyone still thinking about getting in on this:

cc2.8xlarge are still $0.253/hr each in Oregon and $0.270/hr in N. Virginia. That's 750 kh/s each.
How many yacoin does 750 kh/s get you per day?

looking at the pool, about 80yac/day at current diff (4.558)
diff is increasing quite often though, it could be 6 in 24 hours, likely higher

How many yacoin does 750 kh/s get you per day?

my rough math... probably 80 or so at current diff.

Depends completely on the difficulty, which is changing rapidly. One way to tell the relationship between kh/s and yacoins/hr is to go to a yacoin pool and divide the hashrate by the average number of blocks found per hour, then multiply by the block reward.

I haven't got data for it right now, maybe someone else can help you.

EDIT: sounds like the number is 80/day  Wink

Around 78.4243872 yac/day by my estimates.

That's not profitable anymore unless you can get it for free.. current biggest hash power on dontmineme pool is 100 000 KH and it's estimation is 10 000 coins per day.

You would need to pay approx 6000$ in 24 hours to run that farm (windows servers, linux is bit cheaper) and you would have to sell those 10 000 at 150 LTC/1k to break even

LOL Amazon is expensive! Getting 300kH out of my shitty VPS running 10 of 12 cores... and it only costs 15€ per month (which IS an amazing deal, i know). So for 100,000 kH i'd have to rent 300 of those for 4500€ per month.
1 day Amazon or one month noname?  Roll Eyes
edit: Ofcourse i know it's all about flexibility. But if you plan on mining for a bit longer, go for the real thing imo.

What host, if you don't mind me asking? I'm so far satisfied with http://ramhost.us, which has some cheap plans but is nearly always sold out for new customers.

Using cc2.8xlarge (750 kh/s each) from West Virginia that would require about 133 instances to get 100,000 kh/s:

 at 0.27/hr * 24 * 133 = $861/day for 100,000 KH/s, nowhere near $6000.

So it is still profitable by my calculations.

http://host-unlimited.de/vserver
Their "support" sucks, express setup is a lie (takes up to 4 days to get VPS), sometimes i get downtimes. But very strong VPS for a great price.
Edit: Hoping the host machines now don't get raped by (more  Grin) miners. But i got some days left if the company is as slow as always.  Wink

On that price it is though not for long, I haven't found it though but may be because I was not interested in linux, don't have a clue about it.

1 cc2 got 2 x Intel Xeon E5-2670, eight-core so u claiming each of them got 100,000/133/2 375khas interesting Smiley also amazon limits to 20 such large instances per region Wink plus orphans, plus can you even post exact calculations then to show how 100,000 KH produde 10K at current diff Tongue or hey if thats the case well done man you are makings tons of yacs Smiley hehe

if you wanna take the pooled mining approach, run these off a fresh install

Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev git make automake
git clone https://github.com/ali1234/cpuminer
cd cpuminer
./autogen.sh
./configure CFLAGS="-O3"
sudo make
sudo make install
./minerd -a scrypt-jane -o server:port -O user:pass

You're right, I was limited to 40 instances total (2 regions). But I was really making 750kh/s each - if you don't believe me, look at my sales history on the google docs exchange.

Hey man, you are brilliant for creating this.

One thing, I did all the steps, it says mining has begun, but when I put ./yacoind gethashespersec it shows 0. What do you think?

It needs to download the blockchain before it can start mining. Give it a minute or two and check again.

It'll also tend to vary each time you check the hashrate, so take the average of several measurements.

If you're really concerned it's actually not working, do the following:

Code:
./yacoind stop
./yacoind -server -gen -daemon -addnode=82.211.30.212 -addnode=76.115.8.101 -addnode=192.168.1.237 -addnode=54.217.249.235 -addnode=54.217.249.230 -addnode=54.217.249.229 -addnode=54.217.249.139 -addnode=54.217.249.230
