At this prices BURST/USD , ROI is a kind of joke.
With 29700Gb per machine (32Tb drives, acuallty are 29700Gb in real world
) gets a block a day = 3$ at current price
I must mention, you will not get close to calculator, but 60% yes, 70% probably, more than that is matter of luck.
But, lets do maths by calc. It is 3$ per day. 90$ per month.
Cost of the hardware in my country is:
Memory 8Gb 1866-100$
USB 8Gb drive-5$
8xSATA3 cables+SATA PSU spliter-15$
BigTower case LCpower 971b - 105$
HiFlow Sunon 120x120x25 fans with long calbes and conector 12V - 30$
8 x 4Tb WD purple drives = 8 x 180 1440$
shipping on various articles = 30$
Assembly and setup, fine tuning = it was my pleasure
Total price is: 1920$ per compuer.
1920/90 = 21 month ROI (22 with power cost)
Burst price MUST go up, or BTC, whatever.
Also there is a 5% block reward decrease, so it really is questionable, is there a ROI at all.
people mine BURST for fun, many have unloaded THOUSANDS of dollars and not just one person for pure fun, crazy ha ? but true
btw bumped to Western Digital rep. by the hard drive section they are placing their drives next to Seagate , many drives were bought because of BURST, wish I had "BURST" business card
still bewildered as to the nature of network capacity oscillations up 16 P then down 8 P , has to be some sort of large data center someone has access to, quite possibly only person selling because anyone with price tag as quoted above for equipment to sell BURST now must be purely NUTS
for ROI you will be better off to use hard drive space for CETI purpose and hope you discover a "signal" which would make u immediately rich
I saw smiley on almost every line, so I cannot take your word for bad
Almost sounds like :"I see dead ppl"
Well, I really like BURST, and believe it will have great future. That is the reason for me to mine BURST.
Even if I did not joined mining team, I will still respect this coin and this idea. So, I believe we are on the same side.
About WD drives, I got 3 years warrany and they are acting fine, I dont much care of failure rate, because they are 24/7 teste, that is why
I took purple series. Also nice seek time and transfer rate.
Second, I am holding, not dumping BURST, I believe it will be much more valued in future.
Third, I have a 288Tb drive setup. 9 machines like I described.
My burst setups are working 24/7 no hickups. They are not askinkg ANY attention at all! This is a song for me. Having 1000 machines will not take complete my work time.Finally, ppl should mine BURST because it is fun, but also need to believe in BURST.
PS. About SETI
I like it. Finding alien life is my biggest daydream. If that ever happened to me, last thing I would consider is getting rich. Money is just a dirty paper that holds you in chains. Actually, I will trade all my investments for a close encounter experience.
