So i just had a good question about zcashming from a co worker today he ask me how much would he need to invest to make 3k a week help and ideas he has to the money to do it.
Back-of-the-napkin math: ~10x 1080Ti -> $800-900/month. So for about $6500-7500 in equipment. For $3k/week… ~$100,000 in equipment alone should do the trick.
which 1080 ti are you talking about
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Black Edition
this one ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I would add 3k/week with current price and difficulty
yeah don’t forget electricity cost, if you have some
any 1080 ti should do the trick actually…
It will take more than this because you’ll have to factor in a location, electrical work, monthly electricity bill, cooling, setup time, debugging time, risers and other necessary hardware/steps.
Sure it would, especially if you look at from a profit-per-week (you) vs a revenue-per-week (me) perspective. I thought it drove home the point, though, that it wasn’t a trivial matter setting up a farm to match the original poster’s specifications (nor a trivial cost). It was never intended as an exhaustive response; just an order-of-magnitude estimation to get a general idea.
