Hi Genesis Mining community.

Just to let you know that Ethereum contracts have been very popular and we are now sold out of them.

We will let you know when they are back again.

Genesis Mining.



I was surprised to realize that my payouts from the mining contract have reduced drastically. About a month ago, I was receiving around 0.00075000btc and now am receiving 0.00008000 btc. What could be cause for this drastic drop?

You are probably referring to a Bitcoin contract, right?

The Bitcoin contracts suffer from a relatively low Bitcoin price and because difficulty increased by a huge amount in the last two months. Difficulty before was slowly rising, but the last two months really killed payouts Sad

I certainly did not forsee that Bitcoin difficulty would increase that much, but preferred investing in X11 / Ether for a long time. X11 hashrate is not increasing in such an insane way and the Dash price is doing very well (Ether is even better!).

By the way: I think it is a huge advantage to invest in a mining contract soon after new prices are available. Then you can get buy the best hardware at that point in time.

I hope genesis mining offers a swap proposal or another good minable coin to keep up the contracts.
Zetacoin is very unpredictible in hashrate and unobotanium should not be high, if it is high something is wrong because the coin sees itself as very exclusive. Like the caviaar under the coins.
I feel a little bit cheated. If i did more homework how the hashrate would evolve i wouldnt buy sha256 hashrate.
What i've heard the block size debate also has a big impact on mining. If they increase it factor 2x no mining on bitcoin is good anymore i fear.
The decision will come this summer at the least. Genesis mining must knew about this. For me it looks like they bet against the costumer with more inside knowledge.

I can't believe that I am now receiving 4009  satoshi as payouts from Genesis-Mining. Only a few weeks ago I was receiving 85k satoshi and I have not made any changes to my contract.

I was planning to invest in Genesis-mining due to positive previews. I have read several posts on this thread and it is confusing to me. Should I just go ahead and invest or should I think of buying my own hardware and join a mining pool?. Am still new in this

Well, diff went up almost 20% and the BTC price is still low. Curious to see what will be left of the payments tonight.

Yes things are not looking good for those on the 0.0015 USD contracts like myself.

I have a feeling that today will be the start of the zero payouts and less for those.

These difficulty rises have really caused issues for my contracts not just here but with other providers.

I would go over toe the Mining section on the forums.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=14.0

Due to the difficulty rises, there are lots of home users who are having to stop now and give up just because they can not make no more profits no more due to the big boys boosting the difficulty up so much. Probably due to Chinese New Year coming up and they need to get things set up before people have holiday

Unless you are running on free electricity, I think home mining is dead for now.

But as you know your own situation better than me, go and have a look there and perhaps make a post as those guys there will no doubt offer advice etc.

Is there any hope that this difficulty issue will have a reprieve in the near future?. The low payouts are so discouraging to small investors like me.

As you can see here:

https://bitcoinwisdom.com/bitcoin/difficulty

The difficulty has risen considerably since the last change and it doesn't look like this trend is somehow reversing. It may reverse if there is a big drop in BTC value, but it that case, thatdecrease in vlaue  will bite you in the ass.

If there are no positive changes within 20 days most contracts will be canceled. I'm curious how many of the '100.000 plus' customers will be left after that.

email from Genesis Mining.....
     Now, for the great news…


As of today, we are thrilled to announce a decrease in pricing for our Lifetime Bitcoin Mining plans!


Instead of the 39 - 45 cents you were paying before, the price is now reduced to 24 - 26 cents per GH/s! Additionally the maintenance is reduced to as low as 0.00055 USD per GH/s per day, which boosts the daily payouts and the performance to a new level. This reduction comes from the next generation of mining technology and our constant efforts to reduce costs and increase profitability for our customers.


To check out the new pricing, please click HERE.


Hope to see you all there!


To the moon!

Up to 2/7/2016...I knew this day would come eventually!  I am 168 days into a lifetime 1.5THs contract and it's down to paying $0.02 per day.  It's not dead yet but it's gasping for air.  I paid 2.6310 BTC for this contract and I've collected 0.5438 in payouts from it and that's pretty much all I will ever see back.  I bought this contract as a test hoping to do more later on.  What a total waste of time and money.  If you are thinking of buying a cloud contract from Genesis because of their slick web site, do yourself a favor and just buy and hold BTC instead.

Hashnest is also having the same problems and this is due to the ever increasing difficulty changes brought to us by the manufacturers themselves. You can hardly sell those hashes in hashnest due to very low demand hence at a price just 2% of what it was pre-S7 period.

Correct @bitcoinboy

I have had contracts on Hashnest for a while, bought Umisoo (gone), then S2, (gone) S3 (gone), S4 (going) and S5 and S7 contracts. S5 will be next to get the chop, could be within the month if Bitcoin difficulty keeps rising as it does and the S4 Marketplace has already been closed.

@manutdfan  I disagree really with a lot of what you are writing about especially Hashnest. If I had sold my contracts when difficulty had reached 70% I still would have made a loss, infact as Bitcoinboy points out, the pricing of their hashpower on the marketplace goes down constantly so as soon as you purchase any hashpower and then you want to sell it again, you will find that you have to sell it for less than you paid in the first place. The only time I have seen people make money are people that pre ordered S7s before they were available on the market place and due to the demand of people wanting S7 hashpower when it was available they were able to sell that with a profit.

Also on paper it does look good that Hashnest offers you the chance to buy the hardware that you mine but in reality it is a little different.

For example, one user had 1.8TH of hashpower and then saw that the marketplace was closed so he could not sell it anymore. If he had tried to, he would not have got much for it anyway. He was upset because he had to have 2000GH/s for Bitmain to give him an S4 machine.

But what if he had 2TH/s, well Bitmain will charge you to sending it to you, then you might have to buy your own PSU with it. Make sure it is a good one, thats another good chunk taken from your wallet.  

Then you will wait weeks for it to arrive and then when it does, it will be 2nd hand, been running for months and months so there is no guarantee that it will even last a few months.  Then you will be no doubt stunned by the noise it makes, the heat it generates and then you will then realise that your electricity bill each month is pretty high.

S4 is quite old tech now compared to an S7 for example and then you will start to wonder why you actually took the trouble to actually spend all that extra money in getting it sent to you as you will be spending far more money on it each month than the Bitcoin you could ever mine. I mean think about it. If Bitmains very own farms can not keep them profitable, what chance does someone using it at home where for most of the worlds population, their electricity costs are going to be far higher.

Well something came along as that is why the hashrate has been been going sky high for the last couple of months, private mining farms in China mostly seem to be the cause

Read over at the mining forum here, Spondoolies have been bringing out new machines and also Bitfury has machines which people are speculating is one of the causes.
From what i see, Bitfury is not selling these to home miners, mainly for using themselves, but as GM could potentially be quite a large buyer, it makes me wonder if Bitfury is also selling them these new machines and Spondoolies will only sell their miners now for really large orders so GM couod be getting these in too.

Also perhaps GM has opened up a new facility somewhere with even lower costs to set up and a good rate of electrricity so the combination of both of those things plus the newer miners means they can offer the lower prices.
