    Picking the dip is the hard part, i reckon this will be a long period of stagnation at the least, probably down more for a while unless some crazy news comes out that gets the hype goign again, but Elon Musk pretty much fucked it for news moving the markets positively for the foreseeable future, so many people will have been burnt.

    I have noticed so many people in cafes , eateries and even work talking about crypto.

    PiNoY - nice, you have much more hash than me.

    Why are they doing that? Is it that much work to sell? I guess they are older hash rate machines.

    before or after the crash? in all my years of finance, the mots obvious sign of a bubble has always been average people chatting it at parties or in cafe.

    i found it very easy to predict the crash that just occured.

    Network hashrate down 18.5% since peak , my profitibility is up slightly even at the depressed pricepoint.

    Chinese miners are getting hammered by the CCP. Heard that in some areas of China that up to 90% have been forced to shutdown. They just simply cut off the power.

    Typical authoritarian government move. Can't control it? Take it down. Surprised it's taken this long but I guess you could say it was inevitable.

    I guess the hardware isn’t worth selling. It’s crazy they were still mining. I suppose cheap power means it doesn’t what the hash rate of their ASICS were.

    The setups were often right next to hydro power stations sucking up excess power in the wet seasons for next to nothing, with restrictions they end up not being profitible but you would still think you would chuck them all n a container and try sell them somewhere.

    They might be shitty old ones that are only viable on cheap power, no one will buy them. They won't be trashing S19 Pro's, don't worry ...

    That was my thought, only the paperweights would be given away, as they'd cost more to dispose of than to put out a Tweet that says "come and pickup free miners'. Free removal service....

    With all the 'bans' they've had before I'm surprised this is the first one I've seen videos of where they're -actually- tearing stuff down

    Some comments suggest old video

    Makes you wonder what'll happen to one of my favourite crypto videos' mines (for all we know they could've already died years ago)

    Hey ETH miners, is anyone dual-mining ETH & ZIL?

    I've got a HiveOS rig with 4x RX5700 + 4x RX570

    TeamRedMiner nets about 350MH/s for ETH mining (HiveOn pool) but the hashrate drops hard when it swaps to mining ZIL (via EZIL).
    Whenever TRM swaps to ZIL mining I get more like 10% of that (i.e. ~35MH/s), but it jumps back up when swapping back to HiveOn ETH mining.

    Any ideas why this would happen? Is it expected behaviour?
