I got lucky, so used all the profit to buy a metric crap ton of computer parts. Otherwise I wouldnt have had the cash to get them, the 290x's alone cost more than my initial investment. Just got really lucky on my timing

Nearly in the same boat as you - minus the day trading. I haven't really investing in any coin directly from buying.

I was basically unemployed from most of 2010 to early 2013. No way would I have chanced at using what little money I had at buying bitcoins, although if I knew about them back then I would have just mined with my average computer.

-45 for the last two weeks here in Winnipeg. Oy. Just sat around all weekend playing Wii with my toddler. But enough OT smile.gif

Luckily, the 5770 was just one that I had lent out to a friend and I am forcing him to return to me, so I didn't go spend any of the .011 BTC or .5 FTC that I have in my wallet.

Does anyone have any thoughts on multicoin mining pools? Any suggestions of which ones and how profitable they are compared to just mining straight litecoin or Feathercoin.
post #4780 of 22339

It's more of a pain to set it up mining with Multipool.us, but there are other alternatives such as Hashco.ws or Middlecoin.com. Personally though I prefer mining straight Feathercoins or Litecoins, but if you want to try out a multicoin mining pool I'd try Middlecoin just for the day. Keep in mind they have a 4% fee, but I find they have great payment statistics. If you don't need stats, I'd look at Hashco.ws because they automatically exchange to bitcoins for you, or Multipool. However, Multipool doesn't have an auto-exchange feature, you'd need to set up auto-sell on Cryptsy for it to be effective.
