Looking at:
https://etherscan.io/chart/hashrate

It seems that the difficulty is already growing, even though mining ETH today was the most profitable since last November, I think that the difficulty is going to up at a slightly slower pace than the price and it will remain "not as profitable" until we at least break the $400-$500 mark.

I see no reason that the difficulty can't climb back above 300K which was the top of the bull market, pretty sure most GPUs were powered down instead of disassembled and sold.

I cranked up 6Ghs of my old 470s/480s/P106s/1060s and put them to work on ETC, lower diff and profitable. ETC was +15% at $7.43

If I provided you good and useful info or just bring a smile to your day, consider sending me merit points to further validate this Bitcointalk account ~ useful for future account recovery...

Oh look, the bull market posters are coming back! Cheesy

Phil, we reached 100 pages of bear market posting. Time for a new thread. Give it a good name, like "9th altcoin thread - We're back beotches!"

Yeah, I suggest PM an admin to see whats the story.


Phil, we reached 100 pages of bear market posting. Time for a new thread. Give it a good name, like "9th altcoin thread - We're back beotches!"

TBH im surprised this one thread lasted as long as it did... usually it was a few months to half a year xD


Its nice to see the BTC trends.   Early this morning the indicators showed possibly a pullback/selloff, but im glad to see after I woke that BTC pushed up into the 8200-8300 range.


Also nice seeing a nearly $100 XMR price.   Glad I left my rig of old GPU's chewing away at it non-stop.

YoBit is not to be trusted.   They magically show volume that is 10-100x the amount of coins that the total network has on a certain shitcoin;  and it all happened while the wallet was "offline" and about half of the actual coins in the network are in private wallets.

Be warned;  stay away from them.  -JK

As long as alts don't properly take off we'll remain in low-profitability-land.

I'm finding it quite strange however that on the days where alts do pump, profitability hardly goes up. It's like hashpower comes out out of nowhere and immediately increases diff. There's probably so many automated mining bots out there that any little opportunity is squashed as it appears. We need a widespread alt bullmarket for this massive global hashpower to be absorbed.

Makes me think we might see all time highs again, but not in terms of daily mining profitability. Way too much hash out there.

asics  sit and wait for a lot of alts to pump.  So a flick of the switch and they turn on.

Think of zec  how much hash do they have  z miners  are like 50 cards.
I'm not even talking about asic algos... But look at CN/r and variants, x16, C29, Beam... All that stuff is at the same profitability level as a week ago. It's like nothing even happened! Cheesy

Raven did not pump in value much
Grin did not pump in value much.

Last I looked raven was not at 7 cents
And grin was under 2 dollars.

Are you waiting RVN to reach 1 dollar to sell?

I have a lot of RVN


https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitcoin-interest/
BCI is   8.6 cents
I would sell ½ of it at 86 cents


And thinking that a few months back we mined it at over 1.2$...
I remember the day when I was doing 11-14 coins per day with a 1080ti rig and now I see 36 coins/day Smiley
I'm also holding BCI.

Most of the bitcoin fork coins are like BCI. You can't get too greedy and need to sell while the price is attractive and get out.

Bitcoin Cash was the only Bitcoin fork which would of paid you well if you've held it. It opened at $300 and it peaked at $3000 once. The other forked coins like Bitcoin Gold, etc all basically peaked at the time of the fork and have been going down ever since.

Same with the Bitcoin Cash SV coin. Was hoping to get 0.02 BTC for it but it got delisted almost everywhere and its worth less than 1% of a BTC right now. So once again the best time to sell BSV was around the time of the fork.

Back to basics: how are Zotac cards doing in comparison to their peers? I'm looking for a couple of RTX 2060, and these Zotacs are quite cheap. I'm mostly interested in the fan quality. Are they ball-bearing? Can anyone share experiences? So far I've only mined with ASUS and EVGA GPUs (which have been faultless).

EDIT:
I could get the Zotac dual-fan for £319 or
I could get the ASUS dual-fan for £339.

Pretty certain the ASUS will have good quality fans.

EDIT2: problem solved, found the ASUS for £324.

You've probably got to update a lot of stuff... new drivers, new miners, new memory straps... Everything should be working better today, but kinda requires you to go through all your settings again.

Harder than just flicking the switch back on.

Personally I just plugged in my two new RTX 2060's... and they are doing the exact same speed on x16rt as the 1080's, for ~15W less each. Pretty sweet. Looking forward to testing them on C29 and ETH+VBK configs...

The updating stuff was the problem.. thing ran find on old drivers, old miners, but once the tweaking starts.. sheesh. The rigs just love to BSOD/hard hang. Not the best to be working on remotely.. plus GPUs just dying, risers failing, PSUs cooking..

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.
