What wasgoed the Best Bitcoin Mining Hardware ter 2018, Anything Crypto
There are a range of Bitcoin mining equipments available, and each of them takes a different amount of time to earn your initial money back (pauze even). This guide gives some estimates of how profitable thesis are based on the latest Bitcoin difficulty &, price ter December 2018.
This guide wasgoed written ter December 2018, see this guide for more accurate and up-to-date gegevens.
Devices to work out profitability
There are lots of instruments for working out profitability, and each of thesis has benefits. Some of the more popular ones:
- CryptoCompare is good for beginners, but can be misleading. It works it out using the current difficulty, price &, block prize, which means te the long-term it can over-estimate profitability.
- CoinWarz is a better implement spil it’s much more configurable, but still requires you to guess things like difficulty and Bitcoin price.
- My Crypto Mate is a fresh rekenmachine wij’ve come across that permits you to take into account future difficulty increases, very useful!
One Year Pauze Even Comparison
Using the CoinWarz zakjapanner above (wij work out the potential difficulty increases and use them te this, calculations for this are at the bottom of the guide), wij can estimate the profitability of some of the more popular mining hardware to work out which is the best value. Spil Bitcoin’s difficulty and value are so unpredictable, wij’ll give optimistic and skeptical estimates for each.
The linksom to Amazon below are affiliates, so wij’ll get some money if you buy something using thesis.
Purchase cost $1310 onmiddellijk, ($Five,497 on Amazon), power usage 1372W, hashrate 14TH/s.
Antminer T9 (more reliable competitor to the S9)
Purchase cost $1250 rechtstreeks, power usage 1576W, hashrate 12.5TH/s.
Antminer R4 (quieter than competitors, designed for huis use)
Purchase cost $1132 meteen ($Five,000 on Amazon), power usage 845W, hashrate 8.7TH/s.
Purchase cost $440 rechtstreeks ($1,205 on Amazon), power usage 1300W, hashrate Four.7TH/s.
Assumptions (this is just if you’re interested, not required reading):
- Block prize of 12.Five (spil this won’t switch until June 2020).
- Wij’ll use the average Bitcoin difficulty expected for the next 12 months, estimated by analysing the past difficulty increases. Optimistically this would increase by 20% every Four months, so klapper Two.75T within a year (presently it’s 1.59T). Averaging thesis values every Four months of 1.59T, 1.91T, Two.29T &, Two.75T – wij get Two.13T (the increase isn’t linear or exponential, so there’s a little guess work here). Using the same method, a skeptical increase would be 70% every Four months with an average difficulty of Four.17T.
- The value of Bitcoin ter dollars is perhaps the most difficult to estimate. Wij’ll assume it will dual inbetween now and this time next year (most likely it will increase by more than this, but let’s stay skeptical!). The price has bot skyrocketing for the past few days (presently sitting at $16,500), so wij’ll use $15,000 for the current value, dual that is $30,000 – so wij’ll go with $22,500.
- Violet wand costs vary massively worldwide. Wij’ll do calculations for the US and UK – which is $0.12 vanaf kWh for the US, and $0.20 for the UK. Countries like China are cheaper, so you’d get a higher terugwedstrijd.
- The largest mining pool (AntPool) charges Two.5% fees, so wij’ll use this toverfee for calculations.
