WOW, that is very nice. You said you bought old miners that were costing more than electricity?
Can you maybe explain your setup a bit more. I get the gas generator for the electric part, what units do you own?
What do they mine? Where do they mine?
Maybe I'm missing something but it sounds like you got a mess of D3s, run them for a week, save up the payments to then rent scrypt hashing to try and mine LTC on this pool? Are you using Nicehash to rent scrypt power for use on this pool? Last few days, D3 miners were making MORE than L3+ scrypt miners.
You might want to look, the profit you made from selling the hashpower the first time might end up being higher payout then if you then used it to mine for yourself. Also....Why not just sell that hash power to prohashing pool directly and take LTC as your payout choice. Then you dont have to save up, you just get a constant LTC payout the whole time you are mining.
I don't think you will get a higher payout going solo. With the increases in difficulty you might be chasing a finish line that keeps moving further away. I think it might be better to take daily payments so you get to mine under a lower difficulty.
