Is anyone mining Ethereum

Recommended Posts

I am currently using my gaming desktop to mine Ethereum while I'm not gaming (most of the time). 

  • System spec's
  • CPU: i7-6700K
  • Montherboard: Maximums code IX
  • Ram: 32 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 DRAM 2400MHz 
  • Video Cards: Strix 1080 11 Gbps

This system is currently mining at about 20.800 Mh/s per card for a total of 41.600 Mh/s .......Then I got to thinking that I did just built my daughters a gaming computer using Unraid to run two VM's with 2 dedicated Strix 1070 6GB video cards. Running the same Claymore miner application and to my surprise it got 19.599 Mh/s per card

I am running Claymore.s.Dual.Ethereum.Decred_Siacoin_Lbry_Pascal.AMD.NVIDIA.GPU.Miner.v9.5

All computer are still usable for just about all task even watching a little YouTube, But to play any games we just kill the miner.....then back one to earn a little bit extra cash with a resource that normally just goes to waste (we keep our computers on 24/7) I might try with 2 extra 980ti's I have just to see what kind of Hash they are getting

I am, but not with my computer. I mine with polish investing program, cause computer and all that needed staff is quite expensive to me. I can really recommend that idea, especially for the beginners with virtual currencies.

I think now there is not exactly too much to gain through it. I find it better to directly invest which is actually better and easier than mining. Unless you get in very early, it is not exactly rewarding. I am putting my time into DFS right now, it’s a cryptocurrency based on the Ethereum blockchain network, it is meant to change the whole industry, so just makes it such an amazing project to be part of. If one is unable to see the potential with this then not many other project is going to excite you!

In order to earn smth on mining now, you should find very cheap electricity and invest no less than 10 k $, In this case you will have some profit, in other case it will be better to buy ETH and wait. Good luck!
