    how forgiving should you be with mining calculators

    A good place to start would be to compare your actual hashrate with the one on the calc. Also, are you mining on a pool and considering fees? And then of course luck comes into play.

    “Solo” Box Office a Historic Failure for “Star Wars”

    In general I hate star wars, it's fucking horrible. That said, I thought Solo was the only good star wars film I've seen. It was like a western set in space. Soooo, if you think star wars is dumb as fuck, then maybe you'll like this one despite what the critics amd fanboys say.

    Can somebody tell me how to remove owncloud from Mint?

    How did you install it and what makes you think it's still there? Maybe there's some reminent files you just need to delete.., otherwise what you did should work I would think.., guess you could try: apt-get purge --auto-remove owncloud owncloud-client

    How do we give gamers first crack at new cards?

    Maybe, although when someone says all mining will no longer be profitable because one coin is moving to pos, automatically makes me feel like they have no idea what they are talking about.

    Buying GPU From Miner?

    For what it's worth, since back in like august or july (whenever the prices started getting crazy) I've pretty much only been buying used cards from miners (even bought a 1070 with a real bad bend), and i've been mining with all of them 24/7 since with no problems from any of them... even the...

    Oh nooooz the big bad crypto maximizer. BTC is using .22% of the worlds electricty, ETH in comparison .07%. I mean, yeah maybe if we start seeing the networks expand by orders of magnitude in a short period of time..., btc did grow by about half an order of magnitude this year. I think there...

    Bitcoin Mining Energy Use Set To Overtake Homes In Iceland

    Not that I want to debate this.., i hate this debate..., but many coins have "semi-rarity". Bitcoin for example has a maximum supply of about 21million, of which a fair amount is considered to be lost. That's quite a bit more rare then say, the dollar. (Some coins are way more scarce.., 42 for...

    Just mine or trade?

    Depends what your mining, most coins I mine I hold (they never even touch an exchange). That said, I do have a few cards mining more popular coins like zcash and eth, which I then trade, as well as a few cards earning fldc and cure, which I trade once a month. So honestly, it's probably just a...

    My point was that it is not "free money". There are costs involved whether or not you use nicehash. As for people that think nicehash is a good way to mine.., no words for you.
  28. T

    1070ti/1080 availability

    They are not the same. First is the costs you deduct no matter what. Second is the profit you are missing out on. Two fold here. First, nicehash is not paying you btc with dollar value equivalent to what you mined, so loss there. Second loss I'll let you figure out on your own.

    First of all, you are still paying A/C, Electric, Hardware cost, and all of the taxes. Second, you are now decreasing the amount of profit you would earn. Third, these currencies were not meant to be mined through one central pool.., although I guess this doesn't matter to people who don't...

    It's not "Free Money" You pay hardware cost, you pay electric, you pay for A/C, you pay tax when you cash out, you pay tax when you trade coins, and guess what! You even pay tax when the coin is mined. So no, not free money. It takes a decent amount of time and energy (no pun intended) keeping...
