Many have read our past articles and have started mine. Someone built a farm on the cards, but there were also those, who prefer farms of ASIC miners. But surely there were also those who are still undecided due to the fact that he wants to weigh all the pros and cons of each of the two options on which we’ll describe below.
First, I wish to calculate how quickly it will pay off one and the second option. This can go on whattomine.com — then you just need to choose your graphics card tab of GPU (or choose a model ASIC), and then click “calculate”, then the site will give approximately the same plate on which you can see how much will earn per day at existing facilities.
Comparing daily earnings with the price of the farm or ASIC can roughly calculate how many days it will pay off the buy the farm. Why about? So because the price of crypto-currencies is constantly fluctuating, miners every day becomes more and more, and the complexity of the production is also constantly growing. Therefore, despite the constant growth rates of cryptocurrencies in dollars, observed, for an entire year the miners lost a little in profit, forcedly dividing the income with newcomer enthusiasts.
Another point: in Moscow ASIC Antminer s9 costs about 250 thousand rubles, the price tag from the manufacturer on the website is around 120 thousand, but then will have to wait two or three months and then to carry the device in Russia, which is not so easy. Therefore, the price of the device should be added the cost of transportation, and in case of failure, for example, will have to take into account the transportation costs for the miner back to China, which is also difficult to perform, but also costly. In addition, we should not forget that purchased from dealers in three road S9 for these few months can bring income of about fifteen thousand dollars, which is quite comparable to the price of the device from speculators.
Payback is a good thing, but each of the two options have their own advantages and disadvantages.
The advantages of the farm are obvious:
Minuses farms are not as obvious but are also present:
The advantages of ASIC:
