I’m just starting out too and with almost same budget. Here’s what I did.
Buy BTC or ETH. Get you money to an exchange. Most places only take crypto, and it takes a few days to transfer from fiat.
Subscribe to Goldshell website. They send out emails when they around about to list products. Buying from them is the cheapest you will get any hardware. Just sit and wait until they list products.
Have your mind made up and don’t hesitate when you see a deal you like. Things move fast in this market. But obviously have your homework done. Know which sites are reputable and what prices are good.
Look for under a year ROI. This is usually the benchmark most sites set their prices around.
Be ready to have the machines run. They are loud and hot and take a lot of power. Know where you will put them, and which outlets you will use and how to deal with the heat and noise.
The prices will fluctuate with the market so jump in once you feel comfortable!
My plan was to buy 1 miner that was most of my capitol, and a few small ones with the rest of my money. And have a few different coins to mine.
I got S19j pro 100th, Z15, L3+, and 4 goldshell box.
