What about hashflare? I think they are big enough to deserve to being
considered here. I guess general opinion is that they are legit..
OP is AWOL for a long time, hashflare hasn't shown any signs of legitimacy based on his criteria though. The fact that it's been running for a long time doesn't make it a good candidate for being legit. There aer many examples of schemes that collapsed and went away with user funds.

But they invite you to visit their mining rigs. So yes, they are legit. Profitable? That's another story, but they do mine.

Kindly note, though that they do invite to visit their mining rigs, that this is not the same as being legit (!)   Smiley

I have seen a few posts from people saying they were thinking about paying them a visit, but never actually saw a comment of one who actually had done so  Wink

True. This is similar to what some of these scam companies are doing.
Some of those from OP's list owned offices and you could go there and talk to their employees. They had live chats, skypes, phone numbers. Some even had mining farms set up to look legit, made photos and videos of these mines and it was all for show.
A company with a physical location can't be called legit purely because of that.
Owning mining equipment doesn't make you a legit cloud mining company!

Cashing out the investment is near to impossible now in cloud mining. It was only good for early days and after that, it was just a scheme to rotate your own money. No profit at all.

I agree with you because instead of investing in other Ponzi schemes why don't we learn ourselves how mining works. Because every cloud mining is a scam because they will pay us according to their wish and according to the investment they got. If we raise any question they will say simple answer our power bills are very high Bla Bla Bla Bla...

That part were the only words that made sense.

Not every cloud mining is ponzi, only (almost) every cloud mining (legit or not) is a bad investment.

Simple: Because from a financial point of speaking, the electricity costs and the write-off of your equipment for example. In some countries mining is profitable, whilst in others mining profits are (very) thin or even unprofitable.




Not every cloud mining is ponzi, only (almost) every cloud mining (legit or not) is a bad investment.

Agree.
I like HashNest, but it's rather unpredictable and a bit of a gamble to make some profits, but certainly not impossible.
I like HashFlare as well, but I'm a bit more cautious with them; to many red flags for me to wager large(r) sums with them, so I'm building this one up more slowly.

I don't think cloud mining is a bad investment. If you had invested in Ether/LTC mining before the recent price rise, your previously mined coins would suddenly be worth lots more leading to a good ROI on the cheap mining plans, when the coin prices were low.

You do know whats actually a cloud mining? Its mining a particular coins with the use of other service or 3rd party which means you dont have the rig or whatsoever.You have just put your money into them and doing all the work.If you are speaking about mining coins then thats not cloud mining but personal or physical mining. Most of this cloud mining are just total ponzi which ends up scam.

I can still remember last year when I get back online and get introduced into many opportunities on cryptocurrency there was one very popular cloud mining company called HashOcean which later on became a big scam. After that, other so-called mining programs also closed leaving many investors holding large empty bags.

We should really careful with what we are dealing online especially if it is involving the money we earned so hard. The feeling of being scammed is something beyond description and it is an insult to our intelligence. It is often said that we have to do our due diligence and to think many times before opening our wallet whether online or offline.

Thanks for starting this thread. In retrospect, it's obvious that cloud mining has to be a scam, but I needed to hear someone point it out.
