Mining w/o Electric Bill

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all,

 

So my current housing situation comes with all utilities paid, notably electricity. I have an i7-9700k, 2080 TI, 1TB M.2 SSD, 16GB RAM, 850W PSU. Given it would cost me nothing to do so, I have been thinking about using my computer for mining as a side project. As such, what is the best coin option (in your opinion) for me to mine as of January 2019? Thanks all.

Basically turning your landlord's electric bill into a slight reduction in his/her heating bill

what to mine varies, the current "hot coin" is GRIN, but who knows if it will still be worth it by the time you earn enough to get a payout from your pool. As someone with well over a YEAR of mining under my belt at this point. if you want an easy set and forget you can just use Nicehash, except use the custom built version of Legacy from the Dev Angelbbs as that dev has the best miners for all of Nicehashes supported algo's so you can maximize your hashrate, CPU mining is essentially DEAD, like pennies a day DEAD just to burn out your motherboard VRM's so thats not worth doing, if you DO mine on your GPU be sure to lower your power limit down significantly, like drop it to 80%, maybe lower (depends on the algo what is the sweet spot for your card) and bump your fan speed to keep your card under 70c (I personally target under 60c before I went Hybrid, now they stay under 45c).

I took a walk around the world to Ease my troubled mind I left my body lying somewhere In the sands of time I watched the world float to the dark Side of the moon I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah I watched the world float to the Dark side of the moon After all I knew it had to be something To do with you I really don't mind what happens now and then As long as you'll be my friend at the end If I go crazy then will you still Call me Superman If I'm alive and well, will you be There holding my hand I'll keep you by my side with My superhuman might Kryptonite You called me strong, you called me weak But still your secrets I will keep You took for granted all the times Never let you down You stumbled in and bumped your head, if Not for me then you'd be dead I picked you up and put you back On solid ground If I go crazy then will you still Call me Superman If I'm alive and well, will you be There holding my hand I'll keep you by my side with My superhuman might Kryptonite Oh whoa whoa If I go crazy then will you still Call me Superman If I'm alive and well, will you be There holding my hand I'll keep you by my side with My superhuman might Kryptonite If I go crazy then will you still Call me Superman If I'm alive and well, will you be There holding my hand I'll keep you by my side with My superhuman might Kryptonite

You could always mine with a VPS. I saw this article on Monero VPS Mining the other day. There's absolutely no electricity bill there :D. Of course, it's not profitable either haha.

 

Use something like https://whattomine.com/ to see if it's worth mining. I run miners on my devices while I use them. Doesn't earn much but better than nothing.

But if want to heat your room via your computer, by all means, go for it.

As someone who has done this with folding at home, I highly recommend it.
