I have pointed my CryptoNight rigs to Nicehash when they are not rented out again, I have just under 2000 ETN I have mined in between rentals and as the difficulty has gone up rewards are very small to mine directly. It's interesting you only see little drop on Vegas as difficulty have gone from ~3 billion 2 weeks ago to 8 this morning to 11 now and my estimated earnings for 9kH/s gone down from 750+( it was probably more) to less than 40.

I might switch 1080 Ti's back to NiceHash as well when the rental is over as they were rented out on Equihash for 4 days but other algorithms should be more profitable.

Also just realised that the Vegas from french Amazon I liked earlier are 3 slots wide due to size of cooler so I don't think they will fir well on those Onda D1800 motherboards as they would be right up to each other without decent gap. Time for a rethink...

I was mistaken on that post earlier actually. Its dropped off significantly this evening since that difficulty jump and the pool moving. Electroneum.space this morning had 7000 miners and 40MH/s and the Vegas were still running at >10 ETN an hour. Etn.spacepools.org has 13000 miners and 80MH/s and the Vegas have dropped to about 6.5 an hour. I think I'll shoot for 2000 ETN to keep and then look for something else.

Bummer about those French Vegas. How about these for 505? These are what I have now so I may have to grab a couple more...

Surprised to see Nicehash at the top of the table this morning. XMR returns have dropped by quite a chunk in the last couple of days:



Still higher than my original rationale for buying the Vegas though

I would prefer Nitros, I think the best action would be to move existing cards to Onda motherboard and use Vegas with risers on existing rigs but they need to arrive first. The important thing is the order has been placed, I don't have to pay until they are shipped and I can decide what to do when they arrive and this may include returning them if not profitable to use them at the time.

For anyone wanting to buy or sell bitcoin try out this site https://www.solidi.co/, I have not tried it myself but it was recommended by a friend who has used it and exchange rates seem to be better that bittylicious with smaller gap between sell and buy prices.

Is anyone with Nvidias running Blake2s? My GTX960 is doing a rather surprising 1.4GH/s for >1 a day at the moment Seems to be Cuda-based miners only though - I can't find an AMD miner which does it.

MY 1080 Tis got rented out on Equihash on MRR again before I could look at alternatives so cannot point them elsewhere at the moment. I did stop them for a little while to test out NH. They were doing about 9 for 13 GH/s on Blake2s but quickly dropped to 6, then switched to lyra2REv2 9 for 130MH/s and the current rental on MRR on Equihash is about 10.50/day so I am not loosing anything. I could potentially set them as lyra2REv2 on MRR and earn a bit more but market for it on MRR is quite small and slow for ti on MRR so could be long wait until they get rented.

New Scrypt miner a bit more efficient than L3+ http://www.innosilicon.com/html/a4+-miner/index.html

L3+ will do the same speed overclocked at aboout 1000W this one is 750W, a bit more expensive @ USD 3200 and minimum order qty is 50 units. Depending how fast and how much they ship could bring down profitability for L3+ but then again that should push coin prices up so could be a good time to acquire LTC and other Scrypt coins to see price go up even further in not too distant future.

Might be too much considering there are only about 5 of us active in this thread, how many can I put you down for? - 40?
