Minting Money with Monero ... and CPU vector intrinsics
August 28, 2014
I woke up on May 28th, 2014, on vacation with my family in the middle of the desert, to find a ...
There is a suspected bug in the P2P connectivity code, which causes some nodes to not see the entire Monero network, so the monerohash.com only sees part of the network. It is unknown how much of the network this "hides" from the statistics.
The "24-Core" supported by the motherboard you linked to is per-CPU, (e.g., E7-8890 v4 has 24 cores), so per quad-socket motherboard that would be 96 cores. However, these CPUs cost >$7K each yet you won't benefit much from the n-way architecture when mining. Compare that with less than half that price for a 20-Core, 2-way CPU. Those n-way motherboards are ...
The current difficulty is about 6.604 billion, not 1.617. And the block reward is about 8.63, not 14. The other parameters seemed reasonable enough.
Those changes will certainly paint a different picture.
Your math seems wrong. Each RX 470 will deliver up to 700 H/s. (700 H/s)(6 cards)(3 rigs) = 12600 H/s. Without any modification, these cards will probably get you between 500-550 H/s each.
According to this site, you would make about $14.69 a day in Monero and pay $8.64 a day in electricity. This is assuming you pay 12 cents per kWh. This is for all three ...
There is no definite number here... It mostly depends on how lucky you feel ;)
If you think that you will be the only miner connected to your pool once you make it public, that will be the equivalent of solo mining then... Depends on your hash rate (and lots of luck), this might or might not be profitable for you. However, every beginning is hard, so once ...
Any number that one can come up with will likely be (significantly) wrong, because of the very high fluctuations of the market. You simply can't make a projection on several months when the price can easily vary by 5-10% in one day.
But globally, we can say that there are only short periods of time (few days/weeks) where mining is super profitable, time ...
I would do this in a couple parts:
1.) First of all review how you would integrate an API feed into Excel:
or even something like Alteryx
2.) You'll need access to a real-time API that has the current ...
