What equipment is needed to run my rig?
• Monitor with HDMI output cable (or an adapter that goes to HDMI out)
• Ethernet cable
Can your rig mine Bitcoin?
Not profitably. Bitcoin is ASIC mineable, meaning specialized hardware is optimized to mine it. Our machines are optimized to mine altcoins, such as Ethereum, Monero and 70+ other altcoins.
How much can I earn with your rig?
Cryptocompare.com or Coinwarz.com are great resources to determine profitability. They have mining calculators where you can plug in the hash rate (226 MH/s), power consumption (1200 W), and your local electricity rate for a good estimate on electricity cost and earnings on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.
Profitability is hard to measure because there are so many factors involved (ie. Price volatility, network hashrate, so-called "difficulty," electricity cost).
Cryptocompare.com and other profitability calculators may be helpful in giving you today's current profits.
We shouldn't expect crypto to behave like bonds with a steady cash flow. Rather, the high variability is such that it's best valued like a derivative (think: call option).
Were you to cash out each month, I think an 8-GPU rig returns $300-$400 this month on average, depending on what you mine, but that's an elusive number.
On one hand, if you had mined Ethereum all last year, you might have averaged about that much a month (Note: you would have been mining several eth in a week--that number keeps shrinking as hashrate increases on the network to where today much less than 1 eth can be earned a month. For current details, check cryptocopmare.com's profitability calculator). That said, if you had just kept half of your earnings, you'd be sitting on a tens of thousands. I think many miners at least hold for a while, trying to time exit at favorable periods, in which case the future value of your earnings would hopefully appreciate beyond this month's prices.
The last thing to keep in mind is the resale value. If crypto tanks, GPUs will at least retain some value. On the other hand if the market just hums along, the question is not can your mining earnings exceed what you paid, but can mined earnings + resale value exceed it. On that view, you may be in better shape 1-3 years from now than you think (when it might be a good idea to upgrade at any rate).
When will my rig ship?
From the time of purchase, handling time is usually 2-4 business days. Shipping usually takes 2-3 business days.
Can I buy your rigs in bulk? If so, is there a discount?
We consider bulk orders and discounts on a per order basis. Please contact us for availability and pricing.
When I receive my rig, will I receive technical help?
Yes. If you are in need of technical assistance, please let us know, and a member of our tech team will respond same-day.
What kind of support do you provide?
Your rig will be pre-configured with your wallet addresses, and optimized to mine your mining coin preference upon startup. We also provide a user manual that comes with you rig. If you have any technical difficulties, we will provide you support to get your rig up and running.
Can I install my own software?
We recommend only mining with the software we provide. We cannot guarantee good support if you install your own software on your machine.
How long can I expect the mining rig to last if I run it constantly?
Properly taken care of, such rigs are said to last 5-10 years.
Think of this question similar to the question, “How long will your car last?” Well, it depends on a lot of factors.
-What make & model (cheapest car you could find, or high end)?
-What is the quality of parts used (low quality parts that could be mass produced overseas as inexpensively as possible, or new, brand-name and U.S. sourced?)
-How is the car driven (just on Sundays, or hundreds of miles every day)?
-How is the car maintained (preventative, routine maintenance or wait until something breaks and then fix it)?
We have custom engineered our rigs from the ground up. We use the best quality, brand new parts. We manually optimize each rig to maximize productivity while maintaining stability and minimizing excess wear-and-tear on your components.
Can I use Wifi for my rig?
Several of our customers use WiFi without any issues. However, depending on the type of WiFi you use and your environment, it can make your connection weak enough that mining pools don't receive your work in time and you lose money. So at the end of the day, due to all of the uncertainty and variables that WiFi brings, we recommend everyone not use it, and plug their mining rigs in with ethernet cables instead. Most home WiFi routers have a few ethernet ports in the back already, so this is typically the easiest way to go.
Do you ship overseas?
Yes! We've shipped all across the globe. Usually we charge a bit more for shipping -- just contact us!
