Hi,
 I am new to btc and just want to test my luck  mining BTC solo instead of playing Lottery every week:)
I bough myself 3x U1 Antminer (70 Euro each) and  calculated,  i have much more chance for getting the whole block (25 BTC=13000 Euro)  then winning   the same amount of money in Lottery=)

Right now i am  looking for  good and cheap USB hub, and here is my question:

Do i need USB3.0 hub, or 2.0 is  enough? (I don't know, how high is the datarate between the miner and PC.)
Ps.
Another question is: Why the hell people keep paying  ca. 35 Euro for block erupter on ebay, if you can  get 5x more  Power for just  2x money?

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.
