No Profit from this unless you have greater number for a little.

The 330Mh/s may be profitable if you have found a way for ASIC to Scrypt Conversation.

"usb miner and profit" in one sentence? Lol. Lmao. Rotfl. You guys are too funny.

It depends on the price of USB miner and cost of total electricity used for mining and the system.
I'm still waiting for .01BTC USBs.  Course, they'll probably only make .001BTC at that point. :/

There is no way to do that. Period. That you think it's even worth mentioning indicates you have no idea what you're talking about.

I'd buy some, for the novelty...

Why did I sell at $5! Come back to me my old bitcoin! 1GjeBGS4KrxKAeEVt8d1fTnuKgpKpMmL6S
If you don't like the price of BTC come back in 8 hours.

I think the best chance to make the ROI is by mining another coin at this point.

These guys are going for 30 bucks (plus shipping) on Amazon right now, so ROI may be possible if you mine alt-coins and play the exchange game (buy low/sell high).

Have you checked your options?  Bitcoin, Terracoin, Zetacoin, PPcoin, Freicoin, Bytecoin, Namecoin, Ixcoin and Devcoin.  TRC seems to be the only one higher than BTC in profitability and it could be 51% from a single mini-rig at the moment.  It's not like you can mine Scrypt with it.

Actually you've got a 50% chance of making a profit with a USB Block Erupter by solo mining from now until you die. If you're lucky and get a block then you'll get 25BTC+ which should give you a clear profit on the purchase cost plus all the electricity that you've used. If you're not you won't hence 50:50 = 50%.

So, by my simple and unflawed maths, you buy two USB block erupters (= 2 x 50%) and you're certain of a profit :-)

I bought 3 of these never expecting to make an ROI but use them to get into the bitcoin community without having to buy bitcoins with USD. In that aspect it has succeeded

You bought erupters to join the BTC community?

Dude, you could have not bought any and just lied to us and said you had some.  It's ok, none of us would care enough to want to come to your house and verify what you had running.

First off what a rude comment second you misunderstood. I bought them to mine and use that bitcoin in the bitcoin community. I used that bitcoin to gamble/invest and what not to enjoy it. I have turned that into a lot more bitcoin than I mined from it directly. I am just trying to say its good for a hobby to earn some bitcoin and then decide what to do with that bitcoin

I can understand that mining is often the only practical way to obtain BTC even if it isn't cost effective.

The problem with USB Block Erupters is that they are now very underpowered compared with what the serious guys are using and so you'll make very small amounts with them and unless you were practically given them, you will never make a ROI - but don't worry the same can probably be said for any mining hardware that is bought now.

It will take you months to accumulate even 0.2 BTC which is only $25 of spending money.

Profit? Well, that would be nice.  I have one USB Block Erupter running now and four more on the way.

I think its just fun.

If you like this post a donation would be nice....  1PhCzA9o1jcwHr7PR4mxea8nJYUJWpKAGb

Besides, It'll drive me crazy trying to figure where it came from.
