Antminer D3 keep or sell?

Post by bluethundr » Sat Dec 09, 2017 1:50 pm

Hey guys,

I have a new Antminer D3 arriving weds (12/13) should be the 19.3 GH/s batch.

I was planning on using it with prohashing.com and maybe multipool.us. But profitability is so down from Bitmain flooding the markets with D3s I don't know if it'll be worth it.

I think they're making about $5 a day now and I pay about .14c KW/h. That's only mining DASH tho and not using a multipool.

Also I hear that Innosilicoon is going to release their 30 GH/s units soon. That'll make the difficulty go up even further.

What would you do in my place? Would you keep it and try to make a go of it on prohashing.com? Or would you just try to sell it immediately on Ebay?

Definitely sell. The price of Dash tripled and still the payout was a joke

So not even using prohasing as your pool was a help?

According to the stats it'll be around $9 a day, plus or minus a dollar. For how long, who knows. So that's up to you to figure out if its worth it or not.

If you are able to actually run it at the full 19.
I had to turn all mine back to 16 or they get massive HW and xxxxx out hashboards after a few hours and need constant resets.
Also the temps at the 17/19GH settings were crazy, turning them back down to 15/16 made such a noticable difference.

I got a november batch and runs pretty stable @531M, granted temps are in the 70's... do get quite a few HW but not really bad, switching between speeds until getting a more stable instance but never went below 519M
