So I'm getting an RTX 3080 from Nvidia and that has a hashrate of 75 MH/s but on eBay how come I can buy a USB Bitcoin Miner ( GekkoScience Newpac USB Bitcoin Miner ) for £55 and get 28 GH/s which equates to £450 per day in terms of etherium currency (at the current price). I'm pretty sure this is too good to be true? Am I right? There are several others similar to this such as renting a 250 TH/s mining setup for 24 hours for only £40 but with the 250 TH/s you could make £4.6k per day. I am very confused...
Noob, here. I’m really excited to start contributing to the Bitcoin community through mining. Since ASIC miners are in such scarcity (and cray expensive) I was hoping to grab a few used KNC Jupiter ASIC Miner 500 Gh/s off eBay for $300 each (power supply not included). Is this a smart move for a beginner? How many of these do I need to be profitable (assuming .25 per hour electricity)?
Please check my profile for feedback and past sales. Trying to get all of them sold. No reasonable offer turned down, but these prices are already super low so please keep that in mind. Machines: All the machines are working and in good shape (under warranty with Bitmain). All but two D3's are the 19.3 GH/s model, two D3's are the new 17GH/s both un-opened. The L3+ works beautifully, two are un-opened. https://imgur.com/a/VHTLznQ [photo of the items below] Current stock  of L3+ Miner = $150 + Ship Current stock  of D3 Miner = $120 + Ship Current stock  of APW3++ PSU = $60 + Ship Current stock  of 24plug 240v, digital amp PDU = $175 + Ship Current stock  of Cisco unmanned 16 port switch = $50 + Ship Shipping: Shipped from Seattle WA USA to anywhere in the USA, will provide you a copy of receipt so it is purely what shipping costs with no profit. Please add $8 if you would like tracking sent to you within 24 hours of shipping. Why sell: Divorce reduced funds leaving me unable to finance the bill. Payment: Major crypto preferred (XMR, BTC, LTC, ETH, DASH). Escrow offered if we split the costs, but always an option. Sadly, I want these sold so I will take Paypal also because I'm using them for eBay anyway. BitcoinTalk Link to Contact
Hey all, Im a rookie miner; got my first Antminer S3 on eBay about 2 weeks ago and since then I have acquires 3 more S3's and two S3+'s. Power in my area is $0.10/kWh for first 300 KWh and drops to ~ $0.055 for the next 700KWh, and anything after that is ~$0.044 per KWh. I live about 20 miles from a bunch of wind power generators. Running the six miners and a box fan 24/7 will cost ~$80 per month so I expect to make a profit, not to mention the heat the miners generate will offset some of the heat cost this fall/winter, but it's a fun hobby nonetheless... I digress.. My main question/comment is I noticed running the miners on antpool would yeild about 0.017 BTC per day, but the total hash rate on antpool averaged about 1.6 TH/s. I couldn't get my miners to maintain a hash rate of 400 GH/s for any sustainable amount of time. It was also common for a miner to drop to ~50 GH/s and rise to above 600 GH/s within a half hour. It was like this for all of the miners. After 5 or so days of this I switched to bitcoin.cz slush pool and I am getting a steady rate around 2.5 TH/s. Any insight into this? I searched around and couldn't find any definitive answers other than people recommending not to mine in pools based in China. This is just kind of a ramble, but any comments or constructive criticism would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Is this evidence that emotion has more to do with BTC's price than reality?
First lets start by looking at the KnC Miner: https://www.kncminer.com/categories/miners The Jupiter Miner sold out about a week ago. I was looking at it before it sold out. I wasnt really keen on the idea of dropping the money for it, but was looking at it none the less. But now they are sold out... so lets see what they are going for now... http://www.ebay.com/itm/KNC-KnCminer-Jupiter-Bitcoin-ASIC-Miner-550-GH-s-In-Hand-Albuquerque-NM-USA-/321261287638 14,000$ with 4 days left on the auction. That unit has almost tripled in price within a week. Yes, I understand the concept of Supply and Demand, but doesnt this also show just how much emotional hype there is right now around BTC that is totally absent of reality. That unit is not worth 14K, if it was realistic to have that value... KnC would have sold it for that. This reminds me of the whole Must have Toy syndrome. Anyone remember when people were buying Tickle-me-elmos for 10s of thousands of dollars? Or the Beanie Baby Craze.? Its behavioral patterns like this taken in hand with the 'to the moon' speculation which is driving up the price which makes me very concerned with BTC's long term viability. BTC has always had some level of volitility, but it seams to me like we are reaching epic levels of volitility as btc comes into more main stream knowledge. Does anyone else feel the same way? I'm interested in others views on this. I realize the 'to the moon' mentality is rampant in this subreddit now... but I'm still interested in other peoples views.
If I were to buy a ASICMiner Block Erupter Cube, what would I need.
I was thinking about buying an ASIC miner just to try it out and see what it is like, not really looking to make money, just a little hobby. I looked at eBay (I know it's not the best place to find good quality things), and I found this ASIC. ASIC PSU Is that all I would need to use this ASIC? Do I need to plug it into a computer or modem/router etc. Is the PSU enough to power the ASIC? Also a note, electricity cost is not an issue.
I have a Raspberry Pi and want to learn about bitcoin mining so I am looking to get an ASIC miner for educational purposes. I'm not trying to spend a ton of money so I was thinking of getting a Butterfly Labs 60 GH/s off of ebay. Are there any other ASIC miners I should be looking at that's compatible with the Raspberry Pi?
Is there any like Bitcoin anti-fraud security like PayPal has?
I just saw this AntMiner S1 in my country selling for some 30 bucks, and it would be my first step into the Bitcoin mining world. It is even overclocked to 200 GH/s. It seems too good to be true, so I was wondering if there is any Bitcoin service that can give you money back if you don't receive the item, just like eBay and PayPal have when you don't receive your item.
Ok so after doing some reading on this subreddit and google, I learned that mining is going to become increasingly difficult as time goes on. I want to start off small then maybe grow in the future.. I don't want to toss a whole bunch of money into this right away. I just want something that runs while my computer does, which is most of the day. You know, just something that sort of does it's thing while I do mine. I was thinking maybe This. Would this be a good investment at this time considering the difficulty of mining now? I am new to mining as well as the whole bitcoin thing. Would it be good for alternate coin mining as well? (litecoins ect.). Is it even worth going for alternate coins? It seems that mining for alt coin might be profitable with the devices above. I just need someone to point me towards the right direction. I was also considering just flat out buying bitcoins and hoping the price of them rises. Iunno, any advice?
[US-CA][H] 5+GHs Bitcoin Miner (BFL Jalapeno) [W] Bitcoins or Paypal
Hey! I have a Bitcoin miner that I'd be willing to part with. I want to sell this model of Bitcoin miner. It is plug in and play, just grab the software/drivers from the Butterfly Labs Website and you will be making Bitcoins in no time. The miner only has about a month of wear. It will not be shipping with a PSU however, as I need it's PSU for another miner, but it just takes a standard 13V/6A DC PSU. I'm looking for ~40$ plus shipping. The miner tends to mine between 5 and 7 GHs. Confrimation: http://i.imgur.com/Rp4Lbh6.jpg I look forward to doing business with my fellow Redditors!

SOLD Both rigs runs Windows and comes with the installation disc (Dell branded), but I was running a live Debian-based OS from a USB drive that will be included (4gb). It supports litecoin and bitcoin, and even the USB ASIC block erupters. It has remote monitoring support, which is mainly why I used it. Will accept litecoin, bitcoin, Paypal, Dwolla, or Wells Fargo transfers. I would rather not ship outside the USA or part out. If no one is interested here, I will likely just list them on eBay.

So me and a friend want to start getting supplies for mining. A good question to ask for reddit!
So me and my friend want to start mining. Now, I have been asking questions, so no need to say I won't get profit at all from bitcoin. I know all this. But we are going to go ahead and do it. So I had a question or 2. I have heard of people selling these Avalon Asic chips that can preform 9 Gh or so. I was wondering, how hard is it to build your own miner? I would like to buy some chips and make my own personalized miner. That would be really nice. My dad works with airplanes so he has a lot of products he can use to build. We have tons of excessive boards and such. We could even ask the company to make a custom board. But I would need exactly how everything works. So if anyone has had experience building one, please comment! Also if anyone is selling their own custom built one for a good price, I would like to talk. Now I am not that rich, I live off of the keys I sell off of ebay. So be nice about price. It might take me a bit to get, but it will be done. Still waiting for about 200 dollars to come back in for a pc case. Now, one more thing we were wondering. Bitcoin vs Litecoin. Which one would be a TON better? My friend used to work at a PC store. So we were thinking we could Litecoin as well. They have a bunch of spares and they could get me some good radeon cards for cheap. I was wondering which one would be better price wise. Thanks!
[WTS] Last chance, only 19 hours left! 6.6 GH/s BFL Miner
I'm selling my BFL miner on Ebay. It sells in 19 hours, so if you bid the highest, I'll accept Bitcoins as payment (you can see in the description I say that I'd accept alt-currencies, with a wink wink nudge nudge). If you have any questions, please ask!
I just did a 12 year stint in federal prison for sexual assault on a minor. I've been rehabilitated and I'm looking for a nice clean hobby. This mining thing looks cool?
Where do I start? Whats a good miner to get? I'm using a 2005 e-machine that my brother gave me. Can this computer work for mining? Also...I was looking at buying a asic miner. Is this a good one to buy. Thanks so much.
