Using Genesis to mine :: experiment

Recommended Posts

Well, just bought a very small, experimental mining contract from genesis for ethereum (4mhz) - around 4.412ltc including transfer fees so around (4.412 x 25$ x 13) R1433

according to https://www.cryptocompare.com/mining/calculator/eth?HashingPower=4&HashingUnit=MH%2Fs&PowerConsumption=0&CostPerkWh=0 - should get around $21 p/m with no other fees so (21 x 13) R273p/m so give or take SHOULD be paid of in just over 5 months - then will have 18 months to make cash

 

Was surprisingly easy to set up and get going - super easy in fact. You up and mining as soon as the cash hits the account.

 

I transferred litecoin from my bittrex account

 

Will see - I'll update this at the end of every month to see how it it going. 

 

for my records :: BTC/LTC 0.116 

 

If you decide to go the genesis route, please use my code - I get a small hash boost (0.25%) and you get 3% off. Code is kcsjQ0

Interesting. The internet seems to think Genesis is a sure-fire way to lose your money so would be interesting to see your progress.

Fine...I think!

 

It's mining as to plan - so the amount of ether converted to dollars tallies with initial calculations. I was hoping that amount would be sent to my Jaxx wallet daily - turns out it's too little (min send is 0.05 eth - so around 15$) - so guess it will only get sent every 22 days or so. Fair enough though - don't want to get nailed on charges.

 

Took a few days for the amounts to show up - you sort of 2 days in arrears - so we on the 20th and only shows up to the 18th.

Site is ok - but not the most intuitive site I've ever used - you occasionally wonder if you've done the right thing.

Ok, not quite a month - but this is where it's at.

 

It started mining around 0.0022 - 0.0021 eth a day - now down to 0.0014 . Minimum payment to be transferred is 0.05 ETH - still haven't even made that yet. With eth being $200, that's only $10! Should be getting my first $10 some time - might even get a 2nd one (but at 0.0014 will take around 35 days!) But the way it's dropping will probably take 2 months.

 

Highly unlikely I will see my $100 "investment" ever again - doubtful I will see half.

 

LTC is trading at $45 (4.4 x 20)- so would have been up around $90 had i left it in LTC. Mutherchucker.

 

That said, pretty happy I just stuck my toe into mining and didn't go all in.

So - have have finally had one payout a couple of weeks back - 0.05 eth - big deal

 

mining is now so "slow" that they have stopped quoting every day - and looks like it will be a weekly thing. Seriously wonder if this "mining contract" will last 3 months, never mind 2 years. No way in hell will I even see close to what I paid for it.

 

ETH roughly $220 so 0.05 = R143 - so have received around 1/10 of my investment - if I am lucky, will see another 1/10 in a couple of months - but pretty sure that will be that.

 

Don't do it!!

Giga Watt seems far more promising to be honest, I might give it a go since I got some tokens during their ICO

So it turns out the internet was right

 

Yup. 

 

Wonder how the guys that built rigs are going? At least this way the pain is quick and sharp - there's no bleed :)

Still going strong. 

 

Profits took a nose dive not going to sugarcoat it, but we are still making dough.

Ah, right: "the 5 phases of crypto mining".

 

1. Excitement

2. Contentment

3. Cautious Optimism

4. Bargaining/Alternative strategies

5. Acceptance that buying on the exchanges is the only way
