Alright guys, this scares me a bit, but I’m mining ETC all the way, but still scary. I’ve been reading about the difficulty bomb (probably pushed out to June 2019), ETH hard fork, reduction of block rewards to two ETH/block. Will this issue cause any problems to ETC?
I just got my rig set up and running this year with two EVGA 1080 Ti’s and four EVGA 1070s. Its a pretty sweet rig build for myself. Unfortunately because of the current market conditions, I’m getting little more than two ETC every 1.5 weeks in Hawaii. Currently drawing about 720 watts from the rig per HIVE OS and hashing about 221 Mh/s.
Fortunately my wife and I are installing 25 photovoltaic Panasonic panels for our new air conditioning system and to power up the house and of course this wasn’t for the rig, it was for home improvement. But when I start mining with using some of the power from the PV panels, I think I should be more into the positive ROI each month.
I’m still bullish on BTC, but decided to GPU mine ETC because I think its the most profitable for me right now and plus I believe in the project. However, I have friends and other people telling me that ETC is a shitcoin that isn’t going to improve and will eventually go downhill which I disagree. I am all for ETC mining and DCA $100 a week into BTC every Friday.
So I’d like to hear your thoughts about the situation and its future and what you are doing at this time to prepare for the future. I guess if anything GPU mining is absolutely bad for mining, then I’ll just use the cards to build a few new gaming PC’s for my family.
