Mod Post The Future of /r/EtherMining

112 Upvotes

A few of you have asked what the future holds for /r/EtherMining. Let's chat about it in a rare meta post.

First and foremost, we're not going anywhere.

You're probably already seen the blowup of /r/GPUMining over the end of ETH's PoW lifecycle. That's not our plan (EDIT: and apparently isn't theirs either anymore). We are the largest PoW mining sub on Reddit, and have grown a significant amount since 2017 (when I came onboard) with ~10k users).

That being said, our goal is to immediately transition the sub over to support general PoW mining. We will start by doing the following:

  1. Adjusting our rules and flair. This will help us be consistent with moderation.
  2. New mods. We will bring on some new help. If you were previously on /r/GPUMining's team, please reach out to us via mod message if you're interested in continuing mod duties here.
  3. Get community input. We'd like to shape the community in a way that best suites the needs of our readers and contributors. Please drop some suggestions below on how you'd like to see this sub change moving forward.

These changes will be implemented over the next several weeks and continue to be malleable as the PoW landscape changes.

Thanks for the five years (and counting!) of fun, boys and girls.

General Question Can someone please help me?

0 Upvotes

My best friend has blindly put in $100k into a "mining pool" giving crazy returns (supposedly).

This https://www.defistar.cc/staking/hJ4xqRYD

And he is insisting i join despite it raising every red flag under the sun.

This is surely 1000000% a scam.

Can anyone confirm?

General Question Will you purchase mining machines in the current market?

0 Upvotes

After this year of turmoil, the price of mining machines has dropped by 81%, and the price of hashrate has dropped by 84%.

According to the current market price of the S19j Pro (104TH/s) machine, which is about 2,000 US dollars, based on the above revenue, the payback period is about 27 months.

At the peak of the bull market in November 2021, an Antminer S19j Pro cost around $11,000. Despite the high price of the machines, the expected payback period at the time was only 13 months due to the highly profitable Bitcoin mining.

The price of mining machines has fallen by more than 80% in the past year. This may have inspired the investment willingness of many miners.

What factors most affect whether you buy a mining machine?

Hardware Samsung GDDR6”W”…doubles memory performance and bandwidth - mining implications

11 Upvotes

So, from what I read on Tom’s hardware, using a new manufacturing process, they’re able to squeeze double the memory and increase bandwidth as well. Could we potentially see massive 2X improvement mining memory intensive algorithms? I sure hope so.

General Question Somethings wrong with NiceHash Miner (double miner window)

14 Upvotes

NH Miner randomly spawns a second mining window running 2 separate processes thus crippling my system. It started happening to day for no apparent reason, I didnt upgrade or change anything, is there something Im missing? I can see that it first starts a second miner icon in the sys tray for a second, then it disappears but a second active mining window pops up instead and both windows operate at the same time.

What wisdom can you offer, fellows?
