Bitcoin mining is DEAD. Only worth it, if you already have ASIC machines. Alt coin mining is the way to go.

Also, dont get RX480, get used RX 470 4GB for ETH,XMR and Zcash. I would suggest you to mine ETH or XMR in the long term, Zcash is ... not really to be trusted.

Also ETH will be going POS. But ETC has risen a little, and may go up more when ETH makes the change.

If I start mining with it I will submit my results after 1 month of mining. Right now I am being held up due to lack of board and RAM. But bills come first. Toddler and family needs too. biggrin.gif

Looks like im going head first into the mining game...

My main system is a 5930m/980ti that sits idle most of the time. And i have a server(i3 6100)with 2 empty pcie 16x pcie slots. Both with 1000p2 power supplies.

Picked up a pair of 580 4gb cards to play with. I could go up to 4 cards with thr right z170 mobo.

Im one to always have my butt covered, if btc crashes tomorrow i can still sell/use the hardware.

Down the rabit hole I go...

I'm not sure what "going POS" means but i hope it's a good thing. Cause i just invested 1000dollar on ETH instead of building a miner smile.gif

Thats good for you if your going to keep them as staking them in the wallet should get you more but I would not have made that purchase. POS is the method of staking coins in a wallet to supply a node to the network to verify transactions as POW does my solving encryption algorithms. When your wallet creates a transaction you receive a payment.

It is my opinion that these alt are in a bubble so I would not buy now unless you like to gamble. Never be that last one holding the bad. Don't forget ETH has a massive premine.
