How much it will cost you and what ROI do you expect?

Thanks.

When will US citizens be able to trade IOTA without having to jump through so many hoops? I dont understand why they dont.

Maybe thats not your problem, but I cant see it as the solution if it is not globally available.

Of course I watched the video. But I don't find any special characteristics that will make it a very important crypto. That's why I asked because maybe I miss something...

Thanks.
It cost me approx $2400 for all parts including a rig.

I got 6x rx580 gpus @ $300ea

So far I've ran into a couple of minor compatibility issues.... The gpus have 2 pci-e power connections and the PSU I bought (2x 750w) only come with 4 pci-e each.

Otherwise rig is up and running on Ethos and mining. My hashrates are a little lower than expected but I have just been running the rig, no tweaking performed yet.

I look to be making $250-300/m but we will see.

That's a pretty optimistic estimate; you will likely make closer to $200/month.

The point, though, is to mine all that ETH (or other altcoin) and hold for a couple of years until the price skyrockets.

Thanks for the answer.
I was thinking that instead of buying my Z4M an ESS Supercharger to buy this next year https://www.ethereumminer.eu/product...ner-250MH.html.

But I doubt if I should go with buying different units for different currencies or buy only for one and stronger for Ethers.

As Dave 90TT mentioned those numbers are even more exaggerated than my lofty goals.

I'm getting 125 mh/s and it should equal only approx $200-250/m

They are between 1060 and 1070.

My hash rate as of the 1/6 EthOS update is averaging around 160mh/s. 25-28 mh/s per card depending on memory brand. Prior to the update GPU 6 wasn't seeing more than 13-15 mh/s

I took $500 worth of ETH and bought Ripple, sold it, bought it, sold it, and have made over 2k in that same time

Gonna go in on some ETH once it goes sub 1k again.

Im going to hold on to some Ripple until it is offered on coinbase, it will have a crazy run up and then crash right after! Timing is everything

Of course, that is assuming it is picked up by CB, which still up for question. I'm doing the same thing, though. Got some XRP I'm hodling.

XRP was supposedly the main thing people were talking about at the Coinbase Christmas party according to an employee. All hear-say though.

Yeah this is all speculation. Not betting the bimmer on it (although I'd probably have 2 at this point if I did)
