I wish I had bought bitcoin when it was available for pennies. It's over $10,000 now!

mining has become quite costly. Does it even pay to mine anymore? Cost/Benefit analysis?

Yes and off the top of my head I would have invested in apple, walmart, amazon, google & bitcoin for starters...

I think we should have cryptocurrencies group for people that are trading, mining, investing...

@BaileyAB
Or maybe one for just investing in general?

Initial investment for decent rig is about $3000 (6 GPUs), if you build it and setup yourself form scratch with new components...

These types of calculators are pretty accurate... this change drastically from day to the day.. one day you can make 10, other day 20, third day 30, then again 10... etc...

I'd love an investing group - anyone have any interest?


EDIT: just looked at X's social group post - I'll start one, just give me your name and after he pushes the new theme I'll send him the PM

I have a friend is is purchasing a rig for mining....I started to get into bitcoin a long time ago but never got around to setting up the machine....only if. The rig you need for bitcoin is up there, and if you live in an area of higher electric rates forget about it. My friend is going to mine litecoin...

Litecoin - Open source P2P digital currency

I have not had time to research is yet though. With how high rates are where I am I have no desire.

I will say I know a few people who have their college kids mine at the school is paying the power at their dorm! Pure profit!
