I still have 4 or 5 outdated cards from last bullrun, they weren't even worth the electricity to run for most of the bullrun. it's an expensive thing to get into as you need to constantly upgrade the equipment. plus, when ETH goes to staking the majority of ETH miners move to other coins which will kill any chance of profits after that point. but it is a fun hobby I will give you that

Thats about 220kWh of energy per month worst case scenario.

Was making around $5.8 USD a day myself on a 3070, pay around 19c /kWh (I'm not American, I just translated the currency for your sake). Making just under $5 USD now that everything has corrected a little, though one day last week it was almost $14 USD, I think its proportional to the value of BTC and the volume of transactions (and obviously how many transactions you can process).
If profitability is lower one day I just don't mine that day, and I bought a 3070 for games so its hardly even an investment put down, I bought it regardless, for leisure.

anon I literally had to turn off my miners because they were costing me about 1.50 in electricity every day AFTER accounting for eth profits lmao, again this isn't up to interpretation, it's the way the game works. look at it this way:

1 month of mining = 0.1 eth @ 0.09 eth per month electricity = 0.01 eth profit a month

1 month of mining = 0.1 eth @ 0.11 eth per month electricity = 0.01 eth loss per month

as soon as gross eth profits drops past the point of paying electricity, the miners go off. there are people who do not pay electricity (whole farms) and they will run their rigs to a price point you can't keep up with. this only happens as we enter the later parts of the bear

Noted and you are correct. If you get in RIGHT NOW you MIGHT escape with the skin of your balls on a ROI before the next crash. I did not buy these cards for this purpose.

Newegg right now is your best bet on anything thats scarce like GPUs or CPUs. They do a lottery like drawing when you get time to choose from anything on your wishlist to buy. Other than that, I'd suggest getting on GitHub and grabbing a free bot that scrapes Amazon and autobuys. Distill.io is a good extension that scrapes sites for when things are in stock though some people have gotten banned from manufactures sites when using it. Zotacs website usually restocks every week and so does Best Buy but you would have to know the exact time they restock to have a chance at something.

It shows that you're a fucking idiot. RX580's came out in 2017. That's FOUR FUCKING YEARS and while there are more efficient cards now - these things are still running and still profitable. If you couldn't figure out how to make your cards profitable for "most of the bullrun" you're an even bigger fucking retard than I thought. Imagine thinking that no other coin will step up to replace ETH for miners. There is way too much money on the line. Miners will pump another coin so that they can continue to mine at a profit.

I never said my cards weren't profitable during the bullrun? Literally not once. My only point was about ROI vs investments should a bear market event happen again. You are so angry about shit I'm not even sating lmao.

Let me be perfectly clear here. I know someone who spent thousands on a mining rig in late 2017. had he just bought ETH 6 months later he would have been able to buy about 40 ETH. If he ran his rig the entire time, no breaks, free electricity, he would have made WAY more buying ETH at the bottom.

again, this is a factual. you can give all the counterfactuals you want, but it doesn't change anything about the ecomonics of mining. Best move is to mine, get ROI, dump cards as we start collapsing and buying at the bottom, but that takes a lot of market timing.

Knowledgeable miners undervolt their card and run em at %70 power. You get the best hashrates and draw way less power than stock. In fact, one could argue stock settings could burn out your cards over long playing times faster than mining with your card at an efficient %75 power 24/7.

>> No.29942620

Now that I think about it more you're probably right. As profits continue to drop most miners will stop mining and sell their rigs but a few dedicated hobby miners will continue. When most of the miners have quit the smaller coins will be profitable again and GPU mining will continue in some form. Today's crazy market will never be seen again though because crypto consensus has mostly evolved to ASIC mining and proof-of-stake while GPU mining will only be used on smaller niche coins.

for newfags wanting to FOMO their life savings for a scalped 3090, mind you that for the MSRP price of a 3090 you could've bought 10ETH at or below 150$ which you could've done any time during 36 weeks between november '18 and april '20. If you're mining 0.33 ETH per month or 1 ETH per quarter, you need 2 and a half years to catch up with someone who didn't even bought the absolute bottom. Factor in difficulty increases, scalped prices, electricity expenses and other hardware you might need to purchase (like PSU) and calculate how better or worse you are against the rest of the players in the market who've been here before you.

Uh, anons, I live in project housing. I’m pretty sure we don’t have to pay for electricity, but I’m really really retarded, like I don’t know how anything in this world functions. If so, can I mine coins without any downside or something? Again, I’m a complete retard autist lmk if I’m asking a stupid question

What did you pay for those at the time and were you able to turn a profit in the bear market? What are you making monthly now and what are the electric costs. Those cards are like 1000-1100 now

If you already have the GPUs there is no downside.

If you need to buy the GPUs, you need to decide if you want to spend $1200 on a GPU that makes $4/day currently, with the following on the horizon:

(1) EIP 1559 cutting into miners profits
(2) ETH 2.0 getting rid of mining completely
(3) ETH price crashing

Just scalp your GPU for instant cash, by the time you recoup the cost of the card you bought and go into a profit the bull run might end.
