I found an L3+ for $15991 on bt-miners which comes with a PSU as well. Do you think this ASIC is worth it right now with the L7 coming out soon? I would be undervolting it down to 660W at a $0.10 electricity rate. Asic Miner Value says that it would make $1.88 right now,2 but minerstat says that it would make $2.86 right now at 660W.3
I currently have a few Goldshell box miners and those have been great, but I am looking for my first full ASIC to purchase right now. If you think it’s not a good time to buy it, what would you suggest instead?
L3s are becoming the next S9s…no matter what others say, you won’t see any profits unless the whole market rises. this is a 5 year old machine…only reason it’s running until now is because of elon musk.
Just going from average prices, average power, and average consumption, I came up with this. Now your price per kWh is going to make a big impact on what kind of profits you get, and things can be under/overclocked, but it doesn’t seem that bad of a deal to me.
I run 6 l3+ all overclocked all running great in process of building a mining shed well that’s mostly done more long lines waiting for electric my plan is to be running 30 by end of year with other I do have a z11 on its way and trying to get a z15 the l3 are profitable if u have cheap electric.then it goes in to my opinion I’d rather run 14 l3 which is roughly 10k over 1s19pro which ever one u want that s19 goes down you are done mining till it back up and running if one l3 goes down your still mining way with minimal lose the only thing I see the s19 has over the l3 is power lot of this is my opinion and way I’m going I’m also covering the electric so far so my profit are bigger because I’m not use the miner to pay for electricity yet when my electric is above my 1k month they will start covering the electric rate past 1k oh and ps with l7 coming online which my opinion they been mostly running the whole time I’m taking a lose per miner.0089 so to me they didn’t do much all my own opinion do your own research
It’s all about efficiency. If you have plenty of power and cheap electricity, the L3+ may be okay. Most of us mine from home, and it would not only be waste of money but also energy to mine 19 of these just to be on the same level as one L7.
I agree I’d rather have 1 L7 but if someone is looking at an LT5 pro, you can have 5 L3+’s for $2500 less. I’ve seen you can get them to run at 504 mh/s and 600w and at that point it’s also more efficient than an LT5 pro.
Yea it’s all about electricity I’d still want l3 over a l7 here again 23k for a l7 works out to 28 l3 that’s at 800 a piece which is little high right now but my average I make roughly 5 a day per asic without electricity that’s roughly 140 a day now add in electricity which I know what each my asic use a month which is 35$ Which 28 l3 works out to 980 a month they would make roughly 4200 so u would take home 3200 a month compared 1 l7 would only make u roughly 2500 before electricity but it does come down to yea u have to upgrade electric and build something to store them but still pays off if I’m looking at it right
