What is more profitable mining zcash or buying zcash?

Hi guys. I’m noob in mining and in zcash, but as i understand is can be a new moon-coin? I read topic Mine Zcash on Amazon EC2 and i have question to you. What you guys think will be better - buy some VPS for the amount of 500-1000$ per month and run mining as soon as it will be possible or will be better buy Zcash on exchange?

If you can tell the future value of Zcash then you can simply calculate the profit margin for each method.
