You should often sell your inventory because you are also making hardwares price risen up because you stocking so much and putting them into dusty shelves which is very uncool
johnson lu (12 days ago)
Germany had a power crisis where solar power outstipped demand so instead of paying for electricity you get paid by the power company to use it. This was a real advantage to mining bitcoin.

You know, there is one way to greatly reduce the cost of running your mining rig... Just use your neighbors electricity. All you need is a few dark colored extension cords and a lot of leaves to hide what is left visible ;)

Hi Linus Tech, great video! What about using SOLAR powered options? I'd be interested to see if they can make up or reduce some of the costs associated with the higher electricity expenses. That would be a cool experiment is its viable. Again great video!
what are those?

2018 update: I paid 660€ for a 1080 back in july. Prices are bullshit
Have you mined though? Because with a 1080 the power-costs outweigh the profits, meaning you'll loose tons of money on nothing if you try mining,

But why is this allowed. Didnt all governments sign the Paris agreement. How is that minimizing power consumption.
All countries signed the Paris agreement? That is disgusting! Climate change is a hoax driven by rich and malicious corporate men to force governments into complete hypocrisy like the Paris agreement. If power consumption per capita was limited, then most likely we would have a mass revolution to take out the globalist elite. It is disgusting what you people accept these days. Ugh, I really think I am going to have to take a break after reading your BS.

Ozzy Tinman (1 month ago)
I have as many gpus as you possibly. And I've crunched the numbers differently even Different Locations. PLUS I have my graphics cards for gaming. But money is money. The only way I came across @ This being worth it. Is buying a double wide mobile home insulate the hell outta It not living there plus this has to be somewhere like CO. Keeps the expenses and experiment at the most even keel. I'm talking about all environments cost of electricity taxes on mobile homes are like 120 a year if a couple years old. So that's still only going to make me 40k to 63k and that's assuming that your Coin doesn't make a 256% low and doesn't Come back up. Also did algo with changing different coins and finding new vendors to Work with your Situation And how flexible you are and your equipment is. ANYWAYS IT'S NOT a good idea unless you can get the DeLorean. Awesome video. At least I'm not the only one wondering.
