    I believe these Eth ASICS won’t be an enormous improvement on current GPUs in either price/Mh or power efficiency.

    Perhaps the same thing will happen with dagger that is going to happen next month with cryptonight.
    Wont see much of a fire sale on anything if the devs brick newly discovered asics (that have been mining for the companies selling them now that they will be defunct) by changing algorithms.

    Will be back to the drawing board (for the asic manufacterer (for that algorithm))...and expensive GPUs

    ll believe in ETH asics when I see them

    they will most likely be dedicated mining GPUS( like the new nvidia 1080ti mining GPU;s) in a custom rig/case

    I also switched to mining RVN a few days ago I suspect it will pump hard in the next few months.

    What's RVN?

    Got a rough TLDR of its features/why you think it'll pump?

    I don't mind it it is pump and dump. I intended to keep them for a long run. The diff is more than double when I started to mine it. I hope to get to 20k before it getting to hard.

    It is raven coin

    New algo that is asic resistant ( X16R -- constantly swaps between 16 mining algorithms)
    good community
    no ico / no premine / no dev reserve

    it has gained a lot of traction in a short amount of time so far with little to no advertising.

    You still powering ahead with these big plans given the current market? not looking very strong.

    Well I threw the NVs at it but the AMD didnt work.

    Nope, folding it in :)

    I'll stay at a hobbyist level. There's just too many headaches above a certain scale that make it both time and cost prohibitive. I don't mind calling it quits though, it means I don't have to spend my retirement :lol:

    Oh?
    No more warehouse?
    Can't say I blame you, but you did seem to have that twinkle of a man who couldn't be stopped.

    I don't think it will though. I think people will realise that there are better technologies out there.

    Bitcoin was the pioneer, however I think it has served it's purpose.

    I can most definitely be stopped. Especially if I run out of money :p

    Not really. I'm folding in because I already have enough :)

    Got home today and started my rig back up (modem died 3 days into my month long trip). Profitability of cryptonight really died off, it's like $2 a day according to NiceHash (probably need to update the client).

    Was trying to mine Raven, I'm getting about 10-13MH/s for each of the vega64s at stock, but the rig isn't stable at all.

    Seems to be a few people talking about mining Raven lately. Are people saving these coins for some kind of future prospects, or just dumping them on the market?

    Dont bother with any coin that hasnt forked yet from the original CN algo. They are getting caned. ETN hashrate is close to 1TH now.

    I switched from ETN to XMR when it forked and went from ~$30USD profit per day to over $100/day (its about 80/day now on XMR).
    Conversely, ETN would be costing me ~13/day if I was still mining it now.

    There are about 4 variants of the CN algo now.
    CNv7
    CNLiteV1
    CNLiteIPBC
    CNHeavy

    If you want to compare profit for CN coins, check out www.cryptunit.com

    If you have 8gb rx 580s, they actually hash slightly higher on the CN heavy algo than the regular CNv7 algo.
    Mine are pushing 1K on heavy vs 940ish on v7. Vegas are about 1400 on heavy, down from ~1800-1960 on v7

    I'm using CastXMR for CN Heavy (and everything else on Vega rigs).
    Using newest Claymore CN on RX cards mining v7 (he's removed the dev fee on the latest version).
