Sep 4, 2017 by Paul White

Recently I decided to utilize my workstation's video cards to mine for Ethereum while I am not working and sleeping.  My 2 GTX 1080 running 24/7 should yield me about $100 / month, not taking out electricity cost or wear and tear on my hardware.  But then I started to wonder where will the Peak in Ethereum be?  So I worked the numbers.

Bitcoin Mining to Heat my office in Winter

Bitcoin Mining to Heat my office in Winter

Nov 14, 2014 by Paul White

After upgrading my graphics card ealier in the year, I gave up on bitcoin mining.  Not because the returns were quickly dropping as the Hive's Hashing power continued to increase, but because of the amount of heat a monster video card creates.  That combined with a hot texas summer, and a home office that does not have a dedicated AC unit, instead its central air, caused me to prefer comfort over Mining.  But with it now being mid November and temperatures dropping in Texas,  I had a new reason to Start Mining again.  To Keep my office warm and cozy.

Dec 8, 2013 by Paul White

But the question still remains.  Is it too late to get into the Bitcoin mining game?

Jul 22, 2013 by Paul White

For a brief moment in time, the Network's Hashing power was getting close to 280 Thps.  Bitcoin had its biweekly reset of the difficulty level.  From the looks of it, this has eliminated any profitability of smaller scale GPU based mining operations.

GPU miners vs USB ASIC Miners for Bitcoin

Jul 17, 2013 by Paul White

When you first start getting into the bitcoin mining business, you have two choices to make.  Should I build a GPU based system with several graphics cards, or should I just buy a bunch of USB ASIC Block Erupters?  The Answer lies in how commited you want to be to mining bitcoin, and how much faith you have in this crypto currency.
