So I was wondering and maybe someone knows a calculator or something out there that would have this answer. But with today's Difficulty increase if a person is running 100 GH/s before the Diff increase how many GH/s would you need to increase by to make the same amount of BTC after the Difficulty increase?

word problems... I know they suck

Well, if difficulty increases by 25% for example, you would need 25% more hashrate than before. It's simple maths.
So, you would need 125 GH/s if difficulty increases by 25%.

ok so today's increase was 10.66 % so in theory for every 100 GH/s you are running to keep pace you need another 11 GH/s... so if your running 1 TH/s you have to increase by 110 GH/s roughly every two weeks... correct me if I'm off.

Thanks!

Yes, but depends on the difficulty increase, it isn't the same every time.

https://bitcoinwisdom.com/bitcoin/calculator is the most advanced calculator I'm aware of. I'm surprised it didn't got mentioned here.

you are off.   10.66%    means  multiply by  1.1066  

  so 100 = 110.66

then 110.66 = 122.456356

then 122.456356 = 135.510203549

but the easy way is  use bitcoin  calc

https://bitcoinwisdom.com/bitcoin/calculator

  put in 100  for diff  put in 10% for jumps

and  you get this .  look at the diff column  it is your 100 then 110 then 121 then 133   

so your hash would need to jump  that much to keep pace if jumps were exactly 10%

do 4 charts  one for 5%  one for 10 % one for 15 % and one for 20 % 

 most likely   the real anwers for your needed hash are in that range of jumps.



I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

I like what I earn now and I don't have big money to at hash rate but I would like to grow as I can be positive in the cash flow side. At this point I was to get an idea if I invest into another Antminer S1 what is the potential number of difficulty increases that will take me & I need to invest again and so on.
 thats all

I dont know. But I still do not understand the economic benefits of all this. So far my friend spends money. I do not think I'm ready to spend my personal money, to be honest.

Having more hashpower does not mean you will break even more quickly. But if you have already broken even, then yes, it's better.

You calculate your profit based on price per GH/s. So its the same...
