Bitcoin mining calculator with difficulty increase

The long wait for my Avalon ASIC 3 bitcoin miner was finally over. Almost my entire stash of bitcoin went into this purchase (just over 100btc).

Unfortunately, it showed up several months beyond the promised delivery date which, given the increase in…

Bitcoin mining cooling

What do the 1950s military avionics technology and bitcoin mining servers have in common? In a word – heat, or, more precisely, cooling requirements. Blowing cold air over the innards of military aircraft and satellite electronics 60 years ago was as inefficient as blowing cold air through power-hungry bitcoin mining servers today.

How to build a Bitcoin mining rig?

The people who got rich during the California and Alaskan gold rushes were not the gold miners, but the business who sold the shovels (and other supplies). Or at least that s how common wisdom goes. And it makes sense. Anyone can buy a shovel or a bitcoin mining rig, there s not much barrier to entry. Profitability should approach break-even or worse as new entrants…

Bitcoin mining schedule

To achieve this with an all-digital currency, the money supply is controlled by an algorithm that was configured to release a “block” of Bitcoin (sort of analogous to a nugget of gold) once every 10 minutes. But, according to the Genesis Block, the rate is speeding up. The Bitcoin algorithm essentially regulates the money supply like this: Blocks of Bitcoin are…

Lee Hutchinson Clearly, the BFL 5GH/s miner s mining days were done—and at an odd number of BTC mined, too. A new challenger appears I contacted Butterfly Labs and let them know that the fan had broken, and they immediately offered to send a replacement miner. At first I demurred, but on reflection I decided to take them up on their offer. The power numbers mentioned…

Please check this question first : How much Bitcoin will I mine right now with hardware X? Before you go through all this work, it is important to know what to expect from your hardware.

It s a common misunderstanding that score based reward systems like Slush s underpay infrequent miners. While it s true that shares in a given round devalue if you mine towards the beginning of a round and then leave long before it finishes, you have to also take into account the fact that the length of a round is random. So you have equal chances of arriving…
