  • What kind of ASIC miner are you using? – Nate Eldredge May 25 '15 at 17:56
  • I'm not. I'm just using my GeForce GTX 750 TI to mine. I'm very new to all if this. I figured I would give the bitcoin solo lottery a shot. I was in slush pool but I was only pulling .00000050 per block. Estimated time of my payout was 18 months. – Sgtpowder May 25 '15 at 17:59

    Any kind of mining without specialized hardware is definitely not worth your time or electricity cost. Buying actual lottery tickets has a rate of return that's about 100 times better. So you might want to consider that before deciding to sink more time into this. – Nate Eldredge May 25 '15 at 18:12
  • An r-box. Sounds good to me. Will I need an additional power supply? Will this possibly remove the error that I am seeing now? Thanks for the replays guys. – Sgtpowder May 25 '15 at 18:23
  • Ordered 1 r-box. Hopefully this will be a good start. Thanks guys for the help. – Sgtpowder May 25 '15 at 18:30

You're likely to never ever get the cost back for frying your card. Simply an impossible feat to mine with a graphics card. Invest in a new r -box. You can find them on ebay for about $60-100. You'll earn roughly 0.001 btc per day, which is roughly 30 cents per day.

You will need power supply.Be sure to get one with appropriate connections to connect to r-box.R-box uses a measley 100 watts,which is nothing but youll mine not much as well.If your looking to get some return on your box i would suggest rent it out on Mining Rig Rentals.There you might regain some cost.I hate to break the blunt truth to you as well but unless you run a 100 Terrahash Farm youll never solomine a bitcoin.

  • Thanks. I ordered one from Amazon. It comes with a power supply. Is it possible to mine with like 4 of then at the same time to increase my hash rate? – Sgtpowder May 26 '15 at 18:57
  • I figured that I would need a lot of power. If I can get a payout from slush pool that does not take 19 months I will be happy. This is just a start for me. I feel I will be trying to build a nice rig. It will just take time and money. – Sgtpowder May 26 '15 at 19:00

    You can adjust your payouts on slushs pool to lower amounts.I think the ,minimal is 0.001 BTC payout.That will take you roughly a day with a 100 ghs R-Box,depending on pools luck as well!!.Lately slushs pool hasnt had all that much luck.If you want a gaurantee payout in a day go for a PPS(pay per share) pool. – Dale Jeffery Hefferton May 26 '15 at 19:45

    Personally id mine at www.BTCMP.com.It is pay per share but you can see your progress right in front of you.They do have a minimal payout of 0.001BTC as well . – Dale Jeffery Hefferton May 26 '15 at 19:49

    Good piece of advice splurge on a 500$ Bitmain Antminer s5.They produce 1 TH/S and burn only 650 watts .Youll like make about 20-25$ per week with it.Not including your cost for electricity. – Dale Jeffery Hefferton May 26 '15 at 19:53
