Ok I have 4000$ to invest in hardware. I was going to buy a Z15(Yes laugh) but I think that ZEN will continue to be stable. It has a great PoW and SDK for development. Zcash is going to halve soon and those are to the 2 major coins with on that Algo.
Right now I have a small GPU miner with 2 RX 580 8GB. That hardware is paid for a long time ago so it makes a small profit every month after elec cost. They are currently mining ETH Classic as it’s Diff is lower than ETH and there for I get a faster/bigger reward to make up on the value between the 2.
So here’s my dilemma, I want to invest in hardware for the long run. Running the numbers are now the Z15 would make a lot more than a 8 GPU miner. But that’s right now and as we all know the Z15 being ASIC and only able to run Equihash and GPU can run several Algos’.
My gut tells me that Zcash will make more profit after the halving even tho the Diff will increase and ZEN “Should” remain stable and active.
I could sit here and run numbers all day, but there are to many unknowns for ZEN and Zcash so on the surface GPU is the way to go but would take a lot longer to “breakeven”. But my gut is pushing me towards the Z15. Thoughts?
Please be nice, I’m just looking for sound advice. Please if you comment make it a statement to the argument of the pros/cons. Also if you you can provide any tools or docs to look at that would be great.
Oh I am capable of building any type of rig. I can work with just about any OS, not OSX fuck apple! Prefer Linux for GPU mining it takes less resources to run and easy to configure SW and HW.
Anyways, I tlk to much. TIA and be safe!
