Quick Recap of the Antminer D3: It’s an X11-only miner manufactured by Bitmain. It uses less than 1000 watts and hashes 17.5 GH/s on X11 which was unheard of just a couple of months ago and now it’s kind of the norm.
Prohashing.com: If you watched my video yesterday, you saw I was mining on Prohashing.com. I mined for about 2 hours and got pretty good results ($4/hr). Naturally results are gradually going to go down as more miners hit their destinations and everyone gets them hashing.
I was on Prohashing.com for about 8 hours overnight and I made about $3.30 per hour, which came out to about $80. Prohashing is a multi-coin mining pool profit switching and you can choose payout in a ton of different coins. Most of them are dead coins, but the big ones are on there too (Bitcoin, Dash, Ethereum, Zcash, etc).
NiceHash: I also checked out NiceHash. You can check out my miner here. I switched over there and was getting better results than when I was on Prohashing yesterday, but I wanted to make sure and check out Prohashing some more. I’d say the results have kind of evened out but NiceHash is slightly better. I’ve been getting about $3.30-$3.50 an hour on NiceHash based on a 3.5 hour period from this morning.
If you notice in the screenshot, I’ve also got a little bit of Lyra. That’s from my computer gaming rig. I’ve just thrown it on there to centralize a little bit of my mining. I had previously tested Hush Pool on there and wasn’t getting the results I wanted so I switched.
Conclusion: Ultimately, as of right now, I would say that NiceHash is paying out a little more than Prohashing. CryptoCrane posted that ZPool was the most profitable in his testing, and I like the most profitable pools, so I’ll be checking that out soon.
I’ve also ordered another Antminer D3 that will be here tomorrow. You read that right: tomorrow! Come back for more on that!
