Lmfao you might want a pretty powerful PC to mine with if you want any profit. Or else your graphics card will be toast and your electrical bills will be thru the roof

looks like u know nothing about mining
2021-02-27 02:00 "through the roof" so here's a graphics card which is about 800e and it mines about 0.00767555 BTC a month in a year 0.00767555 x 12 = 0.0921066 BTC imagine at this point BTC is 200k so 0,0921066 x 200000 = 18421e minus the electricity 17,81 per month = 213,72e per year conclusion: with 800e(graphics card) + 213,72e(electricity) investment you can get 17,4k i know it was about ethereum but who gives a shit and this is by doing absolutely nothing. just pressing 1 button "Start mining"

If that was common sense and certain to happen, then every billionaire would buy bitcoin right now to 4x his money this year.

Lmao are u living in a cave? Elon Musk bought billions $ worth of btc this week. It was everywhere on the news
2021-03-05 21:49
the billionaires do buy bitcoin, at the right time, to drive up the price. and then they sell at a high price point and the course goes down and only the people who buy and sell at the right time make money. its not about the value of the commodity, its about being the person that manipulates the value and knowing when it will go up or down. its just classic pump and dump which inevitably happens in unregulated market. bitcoin may go to 200k or not, but whats sure is that a lot of suckers are going to lose money on it and a few people will get very rich.

No it’s not actually. It’s dumb speculative investing. Investing in anything speculative long term is dumb. Even if Bitcoin wasn’t in a bubble due to people having too much time on their hands and not wanting to spend money, it would be dumb. The fact that it’s in a bubble added to that just makes it 10x worse.

0 understanding. Greater % increases in 2010,2011,2013,2016 and 2017 than in 2021. bubbles don't reinflate. look at a log graph since 2009 and note where the halvings are and understand what a halving is.

I am saying that they call it a bubble every time the price goes up but it is obvious and expected following a halving. -halving -miners sell half as much btc as previously - same demand or more = price increase - OMG iT'S a bUbBlE fAkE hYpE

lets be realistic (with a pessimistic touch) and say 100k by the end of the year

true but btc is going to 1M and beyond, it is becoming the future world reserve currency and will absorb every fiat money in the world. Makes more sense to sell gpu and just hodl instead

and u know we'll need the gpu to play games anyway so why not buy expensive one and mine when u dont play. or mby u can also mine while playing, not sure.
2021-03-05 16:48
i dont think that btc will become the currency of the future. it will be more like the new "gold standard" where other currencies will be measured with since its the only finite and definite thing ever.
2021-03-07 19:42
i dont understand. Do you get the bitcoin u mine, or do you mine data and sell that instantly

or you sell the data u mine and get paid in bitcoin, aha i get it

If you can find some 1080 cards at a decent price, it might be worth it, otherwise I don't think so. A friend is mining with a single 3080 and gets +- $10 USD a day at current price (can't remember how much ETH he gets) and 1080 Ti is +- $4.

Is it? $10 a day is $300 per month. Depending on price, electricity bills could be $15-30 per month, so a net earning of ~$270 per month. Now, let's say that guy bought his card at the initial price months ago. He would have it paid off within three months of mining. For clicking a button. Seems like a fine return to me. Of course with one single card you're not gonna make a living, that's for sure. But you're not risking anything like people who's investing thousands of dollars in buying overpriced cards are doing right now and you get some extra money for 'free'. I'm currently mining with a shitty single GTX 1060 that I bought four years ago. That's $2 a day. But since I no longer play any game, it's either that or let the card run on idle forever. Last month I got €75. It's not much, but it's better than €0.

2021-02-27 01:36
you are 6 years too late. you'll be wanting a house/factory full of ASIC miners to get any real profit.
2021-02-27 02:02
in 2017 it took about 6 months to mine back the money I spent on my 1080 and that was with free electricity. I doubt you can now even make a profit with such an old card

I've tried it for a few hours on my 3070 and I got about 47MH/s on ETH if I remember correctly, it wasn't worth it with about 6 hours of mining getting me around 1$ BTC

I just wanna say that this company totally stole the name from Skyrim's ''Aetherium'' material. Little copycats.

I just want to remind that talking about something without any idea makes you look silly "Etymology Buterin chose the name Ethereum after browsing a list of elements from science fiction on Wikipedia. He stated, "I immediately realized that I liked it better than all of the other alternatives that I had seen; I suppose it was the fact that [it] sounded nice and it had the word 'ether', referring to the hypothetical invisible medium that permeates the universe and allows light to travel."[18] Buterin wanted his platform to be the underlying and imperceptible medium for the applications running on top of it.[22]"

Don't be an idiot, dude. Skyrim invented that name, then scientific institutes just removed the ''A'' and coined it, and THEN the company took it. It was coined in 2011 by Skyrim. Fax.
