Frequently Asked Questions

Why am I doing this?

I would like to provide a comprehensive report on the mining solutions available out there. I am also open to recommendations on new mining solutions that you would like me to benchmark.

Am I mining with my CPUs?

No, i am using only the GPUs for mining.

Are the drivers and settings the same on all rigs?


Am I being paid to do this?

I get paid from the crypto I mine, since not all solutions are profitable I compensate for the lack of earnings with the ads on my website and user donations.

How much did the whole setup cost me?

So far I have spent roughly $1100 per rig.

How do you keep track of the earnings?

I have started mining with five different mining providers on five identical rigs all at the same time. Once a month, I withdraw BTC from all the providers to my external BTC addresses. Each mining provider is linked to its own withdraw address which provides transparency and proof of mining. I will update my table periodically. Follow my Changelog for any updates.
