I think the problem of graphic mining is there's a lack of distribution of wealth within the Bitcoin community the Bitcoin Financial system the Bitcoin
Deplorable Citizen (12 days ago)
I guess that's the only reason these "altcoins" exist - because people want to make money in mining them. Crypto is the biggest speculative bubble since the dot com bubble of the '90s.

If you are still mining it may be a good idea to use solar panels and batteries for free electricity. It would make a great video too.

Ima buy 5 Rtx 2080 so I can Raytrace my bitcoins
ViralTaco (23 days ago)
If you're watching this in 2019 the answer is nope unless you have a bunch of 1080Ti s laying around and an old pc you don't plan on selling… Than you might want to look at altcoins (not sure which one is flavor of the month), if you get cheap electricity you might actually make money

Beowulf blockchain or Beowulf Communication Service, it provides APIs and SDKs for business, saving cost, human and time. If you use Beowulfchain, its cost is cheaper approximately 50% than centralized service. Let's see here https://beowulfchain.com/

Michael Bertucci (3 months ago)
also one more thing. most people won't buy a used gpu if its been mined on for 2 reasons. one. its been ran 24/7 and 2 well they are miners and they caused the gpu crash. so why the hell would i support them by giveing them a return of their investment. Thats like telling them " hey good job on buying all those gpu and causeing a god damn shortage. here have your money back on your losses so you dont learn your lesson." people if you hate miners and what they did punish them with your WALLETS, but most miners will lie and say this card was not mined on and will try to sell it at inflated cost for example on ebay a rx 580 runs you around 200 dollars luckily i got mine that was not mined on just light gaming locally for 119 dollarson ebay . i did a bench test and a burn-in test as well and it's fine. however even if i was told it was not mined with and only lightly gamed on i know it was mined with and i was lied to. how do i know? because he had 11 others the same cards for sale as well. that is a red flag. So not only are miners lieing pieces of shit they are also Greedy pieces of shit so there is literally nothing good about these ass holes.
Michael Bertucci (3 months ago)
do i want to get on the Miner craze? do i want to be a shitty minner that caused the gpu crash? um no i do not ........... Miners need to gtfo and i mean crypto currency Miners not legit miners who actually work hard for their money.

You should often sell your inventory because you are also making hardwares price risen up because you stocking so much and putting them into dusty shelves which is very uncool
johnson lu (4 months ago)
Germany had a power crisis where solar power outstipped demand so instead of paying for electricity you get paid by the power company to use it. This was a real advantage to mining bitcoin.

You know, there is one way to greatly reduce the cost of running your mining rig... Just use your neighbors electricity. All you need is a few dark colored extension cords and a lot of leaves to hide what is left visible ;)
