Just wanted to drop in and say HI, this is my first 24 hours in the pool, and am really happy I finally bailed on Slush, I started there back in 2011 and its been a horrible place to be the last year.

I am only a hobby miner, but still a nice pool that has let me earn twice what I did at Slush's pool in 1/3rd the time.

Heres to hopefully many profitable times to come.

Welcome aboard Smiley.


So when can we expect to see the 49 hub USB being sold with the dualminer sticks?  I'd buy a bunch of those for scryptguild mining...

Those dualminers are pretty cool little things.  I've been tempted to get a few since my old gaming rig (now mining rig) isn't exactly stable sitting in my garage, especially as temperatures heat up.  Too bad they're *WAY* overpriced due to being a dual purpose chip.

Yeah, they get only a little tiny bit less expensive buying in bulk too...The asicminer U2s are out.  15BTC for a box of 500... .03 BTC each, plus some profit, plus shipping...

With the U1 also at 1.6GH/s, I'm confused.  The U2 is also being promoted with a speed of 1.6GH/s, only with a giant heat sink that will limit the number you can fit onto a hub.

The Gridseed Infinity Mini is a better value than the Gridseed USB sticks. Zoomhash is selling them for $250. They're $310ish on Ebay. Zoomhash is a small company out of L.A., FWIW. As supply picks up, I imagine the price will fall fairly swiftly. I'm hoping Jonesgear picks them up, as their prices are usually quite reasonable.

As I was typing this, Zoomhash just sent me a shipping confirmation notice. This is the first time I've done business with them, and I've been pleased so far.

Just started mining on ScyptGuild. Have no idea what I'm doing but it appears to be working.  Smiley Site looks great so far, with lots of goodies in the pipeline. Cheers to eleuthria for another great piece of work!

Now to work out how to get my Gigabyte GV-R929OC-4GD-GA 4G from 546.62 KH/s to ~900KH/s...  Grin

I hope this is a good place to ask this question, but I am just doing this as a hobby, and have just got some ASIC's set up, one BFL Jalepeno, and 2 Antminer U1's, I know its fairly small at the moment, but would like to hear what you guys thing would be good hardware to start picking up.

Right now I am thinking more Antminer's as the BFL's seem over priced for the rate it pulls.  But just started reading about the Gridspeed infinity USB but not sure I know how those are set up/powered.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

This is the set up im looking to grab(http://hashra.com/gridseed-3-mh-s-scrypt-sha-miner-including-psu-accessories/), and think it will be fun to learn and set up, is it a good idea? or is there a better value out there? can they bought by themselves?  Sorry for all the questions.

for the love of all that is good do NOT buy anything from BFL

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.

I know I made the mistake and got a Jalapeno from Amazon for about $150, haven't bought directly from them.

the Asicminer Cube is the best deal at the low end. Currently $420 from JonesGear.com. That gets you a 30GH/s device that will do 38GH/s in overclocked mode. You'll need a separate power supply, too—I'd recommend getting a 750watt PSU so you can run two Cubes at some point.

If you're willing to spend a bit more, the Antminer S1 is 180GH/s for $1,187, a much better deal if you're willing to invest the money. It overclocks to 200GH/s, and it also needs a separate power supply.

These prices are always coming down because any given mining device produces fewer Bitcoins than it did the day before, all things being equal. The Cube, for instance, was $900ish 4-5 weeks ago. Within two weeks, I imagine they'll be in the low $300 range.

Unless you're interested in Scrypt mining, the Gridseed Infinity Mini device you mentioned is not as good a deal on a $/GH basis compared to the Cube. If you are interested in Scrypt mining, this device has the benefit of being able to do either Bitcoin or Scrypt—or both at the same time.

I hope that helps!

Thanks Brandon, I have been looking at scrypt mining also, and am just using this as an excuse to spend more time in my office with my computers and toys.  I don't really expect to make any real money from this or at least turn a measurable profit.  I do have an abundance of PSU's laying around in the 750-1200watt range.

I will look more into the Asicminer Cube, and the S1.

The only other ones I have looked at have been the Blockerupter blades. But those still seem a bit high per Ghash.

I do appreciate all of that info, I have basically just left my Jalapeno running on another pool for a pretty long time and am just now getting the time to start reading and planning for a bigger mining rig.  It is some time off but I would like to hit 500-700 Ghash within the next month or so.

Welcome! I also came from Slush as I had started there in June 2013 and stayed thru many shady payouts but always made more there than other pools when I tried others with a few miners, but lately the pools hash rate had not kept up enough to get enough blocks to payout what you can make at other larger pools. The other fact is Eleuthria answered more questions on Slush's pool forum than the pool operator.

Yes but at the same time we have been on a good run of luck too. 
I hope it stays and some people come back.

Speed is only down a few hundred TH.  Nowhere near 1000.

Probably some company sending out it's inventory to people who pre-purchased miners.

It was a quick bounce, probably as everyone was starting over at the new diff at the same time.

That makes sense as well.
It was a good thing.
I like that here we are still having regular results because the pool is so well maintained and the users dedicated.

3 Antminers would currently be the only way to go if you're hoping to get above 500GHs without breaking the bank.  I don't think you could even buy secondhand gear for less money.

ASICMiner may soon have some exciting new miners.  But this is a game where waiting is deadly to your income.  If I was just getting into mining now I might just start with the first wave of Gridseed Scrypt ASIC miners and skip Bitcoin mining altogether.

I've been mining since sep 2011, just with a few tours overseas, I left my GPU's and a BFL block running idle for most of my mining time.  I do agree that to someone just starting, scrypt would be the way to go, but for me I don't honestly care about turning a profit on this, its purely a hobby for me.  I am now getting into migrating to new hardware, and yes I am really out of touch on it all.

The only thing I do when I sell coins is put it back into this.  Long story short, I just dumped a large portion of coins I have made since I started(first time ever selling) and have  $7868 to spend on hardware and would like to know which way to go.  It looks like the Antminer S1 is the best choice right now unless there is another secret powerhouse out there?
