Bitcoin and mining in 2020

Post by ayu »

Been looking into cryptocurrencies again, cleaned up my wallets, made new backups yada yada. Also checked out the mining hardware now to see what's out there in case I want to get into it again at some point.

Antminer as usual seems to be on top with some pretty neat hardware. If not for the noise and extreme heat these puppies output I might have invested again. But alas my new apartment has no place where I would have been able to store such a machine :(.

Is it worth getting this (or any hardware) for bitcoin mining these days? It seems to be far too expensive and not worth it.

Well, hard to say. The huge cost of electricity, the extreme heat it generates, and the fact that it sounds like twelve horny vacuum cleaners make it hard to motivate getting. But from my experience every time I bought a miner and stopped mining I ALWAYS regretted not continuing since whatever I mined or could have mined would have been worth a fortune today. My current location makes mining impossible so I will have to wait until I can afford a house where maybe I can have one in a garage or something.

But, simple answer from me is don't do it for the sole purpose of investing and expecting a fortune back. Only play with this if you are ready to lose whatever money you put into it. I intend to buy a machine again (I've had 5 machines before, all sold now though) whenever I get the chance again.

If you want to know is mining on a GTX 1050 Ti video card relevant in 2021 - I have a good article about it https://hashalot.io/blog/aktualen-li-ma ... x-1050-ti/

I'll let this one slide as well for now. My spam senses are tingeling wildly with your content. Please remember that we want english content on this forum. And please don't just come here to post links to what I assume is your blog.
