I’m somewhat new to the cryptocoin market; I’ve only been mining and learning for a little under a month.  I’ve purchased hardware for both SHA and Scrypt, but I mostly mine BTC on GHASH.IO basically because of the frequency of their block discoveries.

My question is about the GHS service that CEX provides.  It appears that you can purchase 1 gh/s for approximately $2.00 USD, but you are charged a $0.18 fee per month per gh/s.  Both the purchase price and the fee seem high to me.

If I want to purchase a th/s, my upfront cost will be approximately $2,000.00 with an additional $180.00 a month in fees.  Right now I have a Bitmain S2 and I’m only paying approximately $50.00 in power and the unit was $1,799.00.  My current earning at this difficulty are approximately $13.00 a day, meaning that it takes about 4 days to pay for my electric.  If I were to purchase GHS, it would take me 14 days per month to pay my fees before I make money.

Are people purchasing GHS because they don’t know any better, or because it’s convenient?  I’m wondering if I’m just missing something?

Yeah, newbies buy at these prices. Some newbies even buy hardware at 10 USD per GH/s. I'm pretty sure they didn't look at the numbers, like you are doing now.

Even 2 USD per GH/s is a horrible price. Then add on the maintenance fees.

Buy your own hardware at under 1 USD per GH/s and host it yourself if you can. That will make a huge difference with profitability. This also helps to keep mining decentralized, which is a very good thing.

Thanks, I bought the S2 before the S3 was available; the S3 does have a great price.  I also have a couple of S1's working that I picked up second hand for under 170 each.  I plan on picking up a couple of S3's, I just need to make some money first to reinvest it, rather than paying out of pocket.

Becasue GHASH has some kind of partnership with places like Bitcointalk., this thread was moved to speculation, there is nothing speculative about the fact Ghash.io is a bunch of lieing, unethivcal therves. You buy 100 GHS of cloud mining and they steal your bitcoins and you end up with a negative BTC balance. THIS IS NOT SPECULATION heres your proof. Put this thread where it belongs and that is not in speculation I am providing proof of GHASH.io Bullshit. You can't speculate something when you hard facts and proof.

People are buying to mine a little bit then sell at the same price or higher so making a nice profit.

New cloudmining companies offer GHS at a very good price with low maintenance costs.
