Most of people here are thinking about effective and mostly profitable mining especially if they invest additional funds, either I, and it seems more and more to me that it will be almost a waste of power during the first month, I do those conclusions on the next facts:
There 3 ways how to mine:
- Buying hash power from GM or ZP.
- Selling hash power to the Nicehash.
So, we have 3 obvious parties here: generic folks, Nicehash (as hashpower auction), Farmers (e.g. GM, ZP). Not very obvious parties: some special agencies, exchanges. All except of generic folks have proprietary miners what gives them an obvious superiority.
During the slow start those who have the biggest hashpower will win the block, because hashing power is considered as the primary factor for winning the block. So, now, guess who will it be? Even if Suprnova will win the first block it will be shared per share among the all participants and the number of coins will be distributed accordingly (not many coins, too many people, very little chance to get the block). Even those who bought GM and ZP from the start will probably lose on it, because when ZEC will appear at the exchanges BTC will be around 900 USD if not higher, people who payed 3 BTC at 600 will lose 30%, but who will guarantee that ZEC price will rise during BTC uptrend? ZEC will start from dump simply to get back investments. So, hmm... its purely experimental. But if will be profitable Hardware will be like gold. So, buy BTC and Hardware
