Note 1: If you don’t know what crypto currencies are or how to mine them then this thread is probably not for you. But you are still invited to the discussion and then ask any questions.
Note 2: Please do not discuss trading or price speculations in this thread.
Note 3: As should be evident from the above, the goal is to keep this thread focused on mining. Let’s keep the thread clean and focused on things related only to mining. No buying or selling questions would be entertained. There are already enough India specific guides available for that just a Google search away. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=how+to+buy+bitcoins+in...ia
Discussion Topic for June 26, 2017:
As you all must be aware, the GPU
mining boom has resulted in supply issues for the graphics cards popular in the mining crowd (RX400 / RX500, etc.). So let’s start with discussing what GPUs you are presently using and what your next upgrade is going to be.
Discussion summary as on 27-06-2017 2:30 PM:
(1) User Movieseeker mentioned that he has been able to profitably mine ETH and Zcash using his RX480 GPU. He hasn’t provided exact figures about his earnings per hour but he has been able to get around Rs. 2000 by mining part-time over a period of 20 days. https://www.desidime.com/forums/dost-and-dimes/...
(2) Cloud mining is generally discouraged as there are a lot of scams. So don’t get involved in cloud mining unless you know exactly what you are doing.
Discussion Topic for June 27, 2017:
With the increasing DAG
file size for Ethereum, the low-to-mid memory graphics cards (4 GB – 6 GB) are going to be severely impacted in terms of the hash rate. So what’s you plan to tackle this issue? Are you going to switch to other crypto currencies or do you plan to upgrade your GPU
? Also, have you done some emulated benchmarks personally to evaluate the performance degradation on your specific GPU
? Please share.
