if you have a free electricity then i wouldnt you buy something like s1 unit? this is much profitable to you but somehow could be a very big problem to your parents another option is you can give atleast 1/4 part of your money to your parents for running your equipment to your home
In that case, electricity wouldn't be free either, since he is directly paying his parents in response to his use of energy in the house. There's just no way.

im trying to say that give atleast 1/4 of the electricity bill to his parent to help them atleast he will not feel guilty by the end of the day

Even excluding the electricity cost, it would take a very long time (or possibly never) to break even with the USB miner.
So IMO, you should buy the miner.

If you were rocking up with this post in say 2010/2011 then go for it, but there is literally no point now, those miners are fodder.

If the whole story was in 2010 or 2011, then OP would get scammed as there was no USB ASIC at that time lol.
Of course, I know what you meant. Tongue

Haha, I don't think his parents would enjoy having weird nerdy strangers in their house.
And that would definitely result in a huge electricity bill.

yeah i agree goverment here is not fair to their people a lot of stealing has been done for the past 10 years and the people are here are already full of it
those USB miner are on ebay i guess Cheesy but i assume that nobody wants it because of their low GHS but some of them are profitable if you dont pay electricity and when you buy it locally so you dont need to pay for the tax and stuff

he is just thinking that way cause he is not familiar with btc and stuff but he just let me do the mining and see that i recieve a payout from the owner of the rigs then he doesn't care any more well maybe as long as there is no cops knocking at my door then he will think its legal or else he will be freaked out as he have an MJ sitting on the fridge Cheesy

I am not an expert in mining, but I believe the electricity cost is a bigger factor in altcoin mining (like scrypt-n or scrypt-jane) than in bitcoin mining.
