With the current rates, it hardly justifies to mine.

The only hope is to keep the coins and exchange them IF it goes back up in a few months ( before the electricity bill flies in da house ).

My 1080Ti does 40.8 Mh/sec with Ethereum, that is roughly 67€ per month...ehhhhhh NO !
The wear & tear + electricity will not justify ETH alone, not with my rig.

Awesome Miner as profit miner, payed in btc, well, it is PAID IN BTC, so not that great at the moment if you wanna cash it in. YOu could save the coins..and hope for better times.

If the rates don't go up for 2-3 month many small miners will step out, I am sure.

If you went ALL-IN with 10 cards, you gotta ride that horse until it payed itself, that's the deal.


I mine, but I am no "miner" in that sense, my GPU is primarily for GAMING, so if it falls below a certain profit, I just pull the plug That easy.

One could mine ETH...and hope it goes x20 in a year...yeah....IF.

I am no gambler, if the current data says NO it's a no, I dont hope for better times.

Eh, if the cost to mine is more than the sell price you're better off just buying some if you're hoping it will go up. At least it's still winter so the heat is useful to keep the house warm.

$67 a month is truly awful for a 1080 TI, my 1060 6GB cards make more than that. My 1080 TI makes about $5 per day gross with nicehash mining whatever. Or more specifically, it would if I let it run 24 hours a day mining, I also have to use it at times. That number doesn't account for electricity, but it is at 85% power target so it's only drawing around 200W.

Mining income did take a pretty big hit when bitcoin bottomed out at around $5900 USD last week, but it's since gone back up to $10k and mining is once again worthwhile with the right miner/pool/gear.

yeah....it looks like I will fill those pools 1 last time to get my money out and then wait and see.
There are new ASIC miners out now. One has to see what they will do to profit. Mining with the CPU seems to be obsolete now since they mine cryptonight with ASIC. Profit is less than half for almost a week now. 16cents dont cut it...no. 30-50cents for a CPU/day is ok but anything lower than 30cents is not profitable.

Luckily, I have made enough to say, my 1080Ti came at a normal price, she paid for herself.

Right now..I am lucky if she makes 2€/day.

Still, I am not convinced this is the end of mining and the beginning of normal GPU prices. It's a bit too early to claim that imho.

And during that time you took a hefty amount off of the lifetime and spent god knows how many kWhs of energy. Seems like a sour deal.
