    Profitability Of Radeon RX 580 (8gb) for mining Ethereum

    Profitability Of Radeon RX 580 (8gb) for mining Ethereum

    I am good with excel and I have run numbers lots with this crud and I have found after power and taxes the real payback is more like 48 months right now for Polaris cards So one card might earn $1 a day after paying its way for power and taxes I am assuming higher prices for Polaris cards as well

    Cryptocoin Value and Market Trend Discussion

    Mining now is not what it was. Chia thrashed hard disks galore for what, a chance? Existing miners earnings are all over the dial due to the number of transactions. The new guy, do something else, video card's usefulness is falling over time, and more are looking at specialised machines...
