What's you opinion on graphic cards becoming obsolete in mining altcoins in 2019. I read some one saying that graphic cards are go down the river. So any truth to this?

They likely won't become obsolete because there are coins out there determined to never allow FPGAs and ASICs to mine on their network and will fork and change algos to do so, but profitability may continue to fall due to rising difficulty and coin prices not going up enough to compensate. Profitability is lower than where it used to be and break even times for most cards are above 1 year now, but by no means are GPUs becoming obsolete anytime soon. The next generation GPUs from Nvidia and AMD with GDDR6 might give us a boost in hashrate and thus profitability as well, though nobody really knows by how much.

As the BTCBTCBTC market recovers over the next few months to a year GPU mining will become more profitable. And coins like Monero will continue to fork to avoid ASICs. I don't think GPU mining will be obsolete, not for a long time. I'm doing a little of both as a hobby. Good luck  Smiley

GPU miners are too stupid and never adapted to the changing landscape , they think their GPU are still profitable when they are not.. Asic and fpga is where the money is at.

The longer you hold gpus the more rekt you will get

Its only a matter of history repeating itself

where GPU's/CPU's POW threatened with ASIC's

ASIC's threatened with FPGA's

Where no Coins could be mine when Eth POS has been activated.

If you will only look at the existing and present hardware out there and existing coins at present as references

you will missed what would be the next coin to be emerge and what GPU will be released soon

and at the end of the day, GPU/CPU mining is still there

That is true for the short term if you get a first batch one. Otherwise once ASICS are out the difficulty will kill your profits and you have a loud doorstopper. FPGA will be a different story as long as the Devs keep up with the algos

If you bought the S9 in the first batch, you can still make some profits now.

Even if BTC market recovers and hits a new ATH, most likely the profits that we got last June 2017 we will never see again.

The days of $5/day per RX 570 and $10/day per 1080Ti are most likely never going to return.

Basically too many GPUs are out in the world and too many people mining.

Another issue are the ASICs where coins like ZEC are not longer GPU mineable.

There is also the issue of the largest mineable coin ETH going finally POS something within the next year. When it goes POS or even Hybrid POS the miner reward will be greatly reduced and profitability will tank.

best shot for gpus in the future is rendering rentals

frankly the destruction of gpu based mining is  a terrible thing for cryptocoins  basically  they were real gear sold be real companies with real warranties.

and available to the entire world  to kill them off was a bad move which may destroy mining in the long run.

there are more then 100 million gpus that can still earn money closer to 200 million  making them  unable to mine for a profit simply destroys world wide adaptation of cryptocoins.

But unless a rendering rental project gets created it looks bad for gpus.

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

GPUs' future depends on the community. If people show resistance against ASIC companies and force devs to hardfork the coin, they'll eventually give up and stop trying to hack the algo. If not, they'll be losing money for being stubborn.

See Monero. They changed the algo, hashrate dropped almost by half if i'm not mistaken. ETH refused to follow this route on the other hand and the community has shown almost no resistance. (There were a few angry miners but not enough)

Soon these GPU's will be mining either Monero or something like Raven (this one should get its shit together though) because ETH difficulty will shoot up too high it will be impossible to mine it with GPUs.

In the end, as long as a solid project like Monero keeps fighting ASICs, GPUs ain't done with crypto. It won't be very profitable for a while maybe.

Batch1 S9 14TH/s price was about 4 BTC. Where do you see profit ?

If you paid cash to buy the btc the cost was about 2500 usd

I made lots of usd on my batch 1 gear.

I don't buy coin other then to buy gear.

and if you purchased the coin  and held it unit last december 2017  it was 80k vs 2.5 k

my profit was less then that but still profit.

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

an important thing to think about is the marketcap, crypto is small compared, and yeah, profits are down, difficulty is up. Some projects will die, and more will emerge. As the cryptomarket get more adoption, and as long as projects favor prof of work you will need more miners to run it.

Everything moves in cycles, but my 2 cents, find good deals on cheap cards, hopefully cheap power? and mine new projects.

We don't know what will gonna happen next.

In this current situation, a bit hard to say GPUs can fight. But In fact, a lot of GPUs miners still exist and still getting enough profit, although it depends on how experienced that miners and where s/he lives (related to the cost of electricity) and may some other thing.

As we know, Cryptocurrency based on community, we (the community) can leave and let a big coin dying, we can come and make some other coin grow-up. So, I think the future of GPUs will depend on us (as mindrust said) and maybe a few "parties" that related.

Good point, when that happens all those GPU mining farms will swing that hash power at whatever is the most profitable. I can see this as a problem for smaller coins, having the difficulty ramp up so quickly.

I've been here since '13 and I have been seeing the same thing being repeated here. Let me tell you: GPUs will never become obsolete. hey will always find their place to mine coins where FPGAs and the ASICs can't reach.

very simple answers.

1º Most part of the mining community, is ruled by greedy bastards that are pushing ASIC everywhere around, to fu.k up all gpu miners. GPU mining is a market open to people from almost everywhere, and that can builld systems almost right away, and win some money to live. I still remember a guy from Venezuela that used mining to pay a lot of bills, including his mother's operation. This is WHAT MINING WAS ABOUT. To give and share money to all the community so that they could do better in live. Those greedy guys pushing ASICS are actually MORONS, that are destroying this market for the rest.

2º The ETH community said nothing to ETH not going ASIC resistant. Why? Because what ETH wants is to get a big network build as soon as possible, and they don't want that to take long. The faster PoS is applied, the better FOR THEM, NOT THE COMMUNITY. That's why Vitalik is sharing his money with different projects, because he knows for a fact that not making ETH ASIC resistant many people in the third world mining are getting rekt.

3º As time passes by, more and more GPU's are joining the network of ETH. This is because ASICS are taking control of every coin by CENTRALISING THE MINING. If you can take control of a coin, mining to , SO BEING THE ONE TO SUPPLY IT TO THE COMMUNITY, YOU CAN ACTUALLY MANIPULATE THE PRICE. The same has happened all the time with PETROL-GUIDED COUNTRIES. ASICS are destroying the world of mining AT FASTER RATES THEN EVER. But the community says NOTHING, because a big part has already sold their GPU's and bought ASICS. People don't actually care about the others, just want the most profit, and fast, because they know that this is ending. It's like watching coins drop from a machine, and see a lot of people running towards them, and getting a big part. Instead of taking YOUR PART, you´ll try to get , your part, his part, her part, and others part. This is GREED, and for me is a CAPITAL SIN.

4º GPU mining is still giving little profit, but the profit can disappear tomorrow. The value of the coins are in a critical point. For some people, it's just not worth mining though they get little profit. Others are mining because in their minds, they BELIEVE that mining and don't sell is a part of this matter. If ETH increases in price i will get more money, they think. They will get totally rekt because this market is dying.

5º Day after day, ETH network hashrate is increasing. Difficulty has scaled 13% in the last 30 days, which is fuc.ing ridiculous. And still going up, because the more ASIC joins different coins, the more rekt people get mining it. That has consequences: The increase in difficulty AFFECTS ALL THE PEOPLE.

Reality is, ASIC miners rekt GPU miners. Now new ASIC miners are destroying all ASIC miners instead. The harder the difficulty, the less profit. FOR EVERYBODY. An ASIC miner is not BY ANY MEANS LEGITIMATED TO TALK ABOUT ASIC MINERS. Greed gets FEEDBACK from GREED.

Now , what to expect in the future?¿? The big GPU holder is now ETH. Not a single coin can even get to the 1% of this coin (unless ASIC coins , obviously). A big part , like 80-90% of the World's GPU are on the ETH network right now.

Well, ETH will go PoS (this is my guess) around q4 this year. If out there there is a coin profitable, with the end of mining for ETH, there will be no coin left profitable unless a miracle occurs and some coins begin to gain value.

You see? many people , before this big crash, were mining alt coins in a type of investment. They were losing money (electricity bill) but they thought that coin could multiply it's value by a lot. Now people are so fed up with this situation, that they are only mining for direct profit, NOT FOR FUTURE PROFIT. Why?? Because noone believes in this market. NOONE, not even investors. Thats why prices don't go up from low, and after a small push, there is a small drop to compensate.

Till ETH goes PoS we can still gain some money. Hope ETH will not go PoS till at least it reaches 800$. Why? Because i think when PoS is applied, small hodlers, (with 5 or less ETH), will not be able to enter the PoS verification system, and they will be forced to sell their coins. A huge amount of coins will flood the market, time when sharks will stay calm waiting for those coins to lowe their prices for them to buy. Moreover, i don't think ETH can survive with only the money from smartcontracts. It has a value of 468$ right now, because it can be traded, bought and sold. Once PoS is applied, my guess is it will go down by a lot.


Once thing is clear for me. Once ETH goes PoS , there will be no more coins profitable to mine in the hole market and GPU mining will die. ASIC miners will last a big longer. There is NO PLACE TO PUSH SUCH A HUGE HASHRATE OF ETH. No way.

BTC no more than 6k by end of 2019. ETH no more than 300$ by end 2019. Huge market manipulation, huge amount of scammers and hypers.
