    Next, you need to parallelize your operations to extract optimal h/s.

    Do you know your h/p? If you give me your cost per kilowatt (roughly) and the wattage of your mining gear, I can try to calculate your return at scale.

    Looks like a bit of a slide in prices, interesting to see if this is the bursting of the bubble.

    Here in the UK one of the UK credit card providers has blocked purchasing of some crypto currencies.

    "
    The cryptocurrency tumbled as much as 13% Tuesday. Bitcoin briefly fell below $6,000 for the first time in three months before recovering most of its earlier losses. It has lost nearly two-thirds of its value since it peaked above $19,000 in December.

    Other digital currencies, including ethereum, litecoin and ripple, mirrored bitcoin's drop."
    The sell off seems to be mimicking the stock market to a certain degree and it looks like people are getting fucky with it

    "The SEC has already stepped up enforcement. Last week, it obtained a court order halting an initial coin offering from what claimed to be the world's first "decentralized bank."

    Cryptocurrency investors have also been alarmed by sharpened rhetoric around online currencies.

    On Tuesday, Switzerland-based Bank for International Settlements General Manager Agustin Carstens called bitcoin a "combination of a bubble, a Ponzi scheme and an environmental disaster."

    Carstens' comments followed scrutiny Monday from Mario Draghi, president of the European Central Bank. Draghi said online currencies were "very risky assets" and that prices were "entirely speculative."
    Good article if you're not plugged into the scene or if you're in a "HODL!!!!! Crypto is #1" bubble. I didn't realize the SEC was throwing it's weight around like that. I will have to read more.
    I am apparently ignorant.
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.
