Bitcoin: n00bs guide to mining and maximizing returns.ROI (3-4 months)

Bitcoin is the hot topic and it should be, the damn coin rose from 1300 to 17000 in about a year. About 80 percent of bitcoin is already mined making it the hardest coin to mine!

  There are two ways you can do this:
  1. Mine bitcoin with an ASIC miner
    *S9 13.5 THs

    Power consumption
    (1.375kW * 24hrs)/0.8 = 41.25 kWh
    Price - $1699
    Profitability :Screenshot_20180124-004125.png

In short, mining with a s9 is still profitable; people may tell you otherwise. I have used virtual data to show that it can still make you momey. You won't get rich all off a sudden but with an ROI of about 3-4 months, any coin mined after that takes you in profit.

 A rather pocket efficient solution is the :
 Antminer S7 4.73Ths

However, this miner does come with a drawback, huge power costs for what it mines.

Miner price- $500 to $800
With a not so impressive hashing power if you want to get in on the mining game and if you are truly a believer in the price theory of bitcoin hitting $115,000 dollars this should be considered a steal!

So there is that.
