With the launch of myriad asic scrypt miners the days of mining at home seem to be disappearing in favour of cloud mining. Gaw Miners offer a variety of hardware hosted through the zen cloud mining site.
There are many factors to consider and with such a wide array of hardware on offer it can be difficult to make the right choice. Gaw currently offer 1 month of free hosting with their current range but what miner is the most profitable once the daily maintenance charges kick in?
We looked at the full range and took into account the upfront cost and 3 months maintenance charge to find the best deal per Mh for each machine. As hardware is often obsolete within 4-6 months this guide effectively lets you know how much the costs will be for 4 months (including the 1 month free)
Column 4 $/Mh = Cost per Mh based on purchase cost only
Column 5 Maint/Day = Maintenance Charge for full Machine per day
Column 6 Maint/Mh (90 Days) = Maintenance charge per Mh for 90 days (120 days if you include first month free)
Column 7 Total $ per Mh = The total cost per Mh over 90 days including purchase cost and maintenance (120 days if you include the first month free)
Best High End Stealth Machine:
The War Machine 54Mh $1049.95 – Cost Per Mh over 4 Months = $26.79
Best Mid Range Buy:
Silverfish 2 28Mh $839.95 – Cost Per Mh over 4 Months = $33.79
Best Budget Buy
The Fury 1.3Mh $44.95 – Cost Per Mh over 4 Months = $42.19
