There are a number of reasons that Genesis Mining is ranked as the #1 cloud mining company. They are a company you can trust, they offer lifetime contracts, and their maintenance fees are very reasonable. This has also given them a good reputation of being transparent and legitimate, keeping off any of it being a scam among users.
Not sure:) I think there is a problem with supliers of the hardware. Cryptocurrency is very popular. For example it is difficult to buy a graphic card to the PC because averyone want to mine cryptocurrency.
The current top gaming graphics card, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, delivers the highest Ethereum hash rate but it also consumes drastically more power under load when mining, versus more midrange cards like the GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD Radeon RX 480. Furthermore, with a bit of memory clock and power target tuning, the GTX 1070 can deliver a higher hashrate, while still maintaining a much lower power draw than the 1080.
Ethereum Mining rig requires certain specifications on the hardware as well as on software side. In order to mine ether, you need to have a computer with Graphics card/GPU or CPU. GPU’s have a higher hash rate, i.e. they are much faster in solving problems and are therefore 200 times faster than CPU. It is wise to use GPU for your mining and there are also mining rigs being done in which hardware containing 6-7 GPU’s together are built to provide faster performance and more power.
For example, the GTX 1050 Ti doesn’t have a very high hashrate. However, it doesn’t consume much power either. In fact, buying four 1050 Ti’s would cost you the same as buying one R9 295X2 and they have a higher profit ratio.
Just a hypothetical, but say someone had (legal) remote access to 5,000+ normal desktop computers. If he/she were to install the software on them, could it be profitable? On-board Intel graphics type machines.
If a card you own or plan on buying did not make this list, that does not mean that’s it’s a bad card by any means. This list is purely based on my opinions, as well as the price of the cards and the raw performance numbers. Though there are other cards which are great for mining, such as GTX 1080 Ti or RX Vega 64 (which I did not include due to their high cost), these cards on the list are just my recommendations. Another option for mining is ASICs. ASICs are devices made specifically for mining, and when compared to graphics cards, ASICs perform much better and have a much lower performance to the power draw ratio. The problem with ASICs are that they can only mine on one algorithm, so when the difficulty goes up, or the price of the coin you are mining goes down, you simply can’t swap to another algorithm, you will have to stay with that algorithm. ASICs are primarily used for SHA-256 (Bitcoin) or SCRYPT (Litecoin) algorithms.
So I am working through some issues. First I have two drives. C: which is a fairly small SSD drive just for my OS (the blockchain is too big to fit on here) and an E: drive which stores everything else. I finally figured out how to store the blockchain on E: with my coinbase and if I am solo mining it works (probably not going to mine anything but works nontheless). So I am considering pool mining. According to your article I must first downloan the entire blockchain which I am working on doing again to the E: drive.… Read more »
I disagree… had the same scenario..the cost of an Ether mining contract with Genesis I could have bought 5.2 ETH …mined less than 2. Bought ZEC mining with Genesis…. never going to make half the amount I spent.
You would need a different motherboard that’s capable of supporting two different RX 460s. The software itself can run on two separate GPUs, so that’s definitely not an issue. The issue is that dual GPU motherboards can cost quite a bit of money compared to single slot boards.
