U can always use your cpu for mining other crypto, wtc, running some heavy applications... I have also buyed for 4K$ of cpu rig / stuff but I'll use this for heavy applications and I didn't lose my investment...

It was advised by many ppl here to invest only in cpu if u plan to use it later for other stuff due to next gpu migration, u didn't took this in consideration.

I bought cpu because I was told that GMN would be in a separate pool for mining - I had no issue transitioning to GPU but this was announced, what a few days ago?

[–]thevoteaccount 2 points3 points  (8 children)

GMN will still be in a separate pool for mining. But GMN and MN mining were never going to start immediately on mainnet launch. They have already announced airdrops to GMN and MN holders to compensate for this. You haven't done your research.

GPU is limited to ONE gpu and you have to choose gou or cpu.
A 1080 gets 1/2 the hash of a Ryzen 1700 so why would you get rid of components that are better than gpu’s?
GMN pools were never on the cards for release / read the amas. You’ll get the coins so wise up

Do we know when the gpus will become unthrottled or hashing like normal? I'm considering purchasing 10-20 gpus but if this is the permanent hash rate for them then I guess it may be better to buy a bunch of cpu builds.

Hi there.

So Only 1 GPU per Masternode to mine?

[–]k1r0vv 2 points3 points  (1 child)

gmn and mn advantages will come into play soon enough... stacking... once we switch tokens...have a little patience, i know... i understand...

[–]gverno[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yeah youre right - thank you.

[–]Throughawayup 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mine aeon. It works really well for cpus for how much power they consume. Not trying to shill just throwing out a suggestion.

[–]bitshiftcc 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I've just tried cancelling my order for the parts for my CPU build, seriously considering selling my WTC at the next pump.

[–]joshuarochford 3 points4 points  (18 children)

Well I built my CPU rigs but I am gonna keep it all except the GPUs I will do 1080s with.

Essentially though, you wasted money on cpus.

[–]joshuarochford 0 points1 point  (11 children)

I see a lot of diff opinions on slack, and WTC is notorious for screwing things up. People say GPU is only as powerful as CPU atm. Not sure 100%.

[–]gverno[S] 5 points6 points  (8 children)

This is honestly just depressing - sitting here looking at a half built cpu rig with boxes everywhere.

[–]joshuarochford 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Yeah I have 4 CPU rigs lol. All opened and no way to return haha :'(.

[–]gverno[S] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Well I had 2, luckily I haven't ordered a 3rd yet.. these guys are just straight dicks.. can do nothing but laugh about it.

[–]raptorak1 0 points1 point  (4 children)

You are straight up stupid. First of all, you don't even try mining after buying all that equipment. Why is it sitting around half built when you could be mining? You do realise cpu mining is massively outperforming gpu right now? Other people with rigs like yours have mined hundreds of WTCT. But no, instead you are on here complaining and feeling sorry for yourself about a problem that doesn't exist. Wake up mate.

[–]gverno[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I am you halfwit - at the time of the post the only information was that GPU mining was available, nothing else. crawl back into your parent's basement.

[–]raptorak1 0 points1 point  (2 children)

So now you are mining getting excellent hash rates, don't you feel a bit retarded for jumping the gun with your whining?

[–]gverno[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

yes - but I am not responsible for the me of 12 hours ago :)

[–]havesomegarlic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel for you. I would finish it and start mining ASAP tbh. Seems to be CPU mining isn't doa.

You do have to admit buying a rig before the mainnet release was a risk, but that doesn't mean you weren't screwed either. I hope that in time we learn they are more equal than it seems.

[–]2treesandatiger 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You cant really tell because the miner is guessing the hashrate for CPU's while showing nill for GPU.

[–]kaito1000 0 points1 point  (4 children)

This is nonsence from someone who doesn’t have a clue

[–]joshuarochford -1 points0 points  (3 children)

Oh yeah? Why is that? You can't even spell nonsense.

[–]kaito1000 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Keep up the cheek josh and you’ll be banned

[–]shoutingorange- 3 points4 points  (0 children)

i heard asic's tomorrow

[–]n4l8tr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well I’m completely new to mining. Frustrated at what happened however my plan is by an asus zenith extreme mobo and a 1080 and try and mine c just 1 gpu until I can add more. Hope that will work

[–]Stockton_Slap209 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes of course. I am sorry for your loss.

[–]NoFapWithBenefits 0 points1 point  (2 children)

If you went in on the hardcore CPU builds like threadripper you should still be mining better than most gpu's right?

[–]gverno[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

1800 so nothing crazy..

[–]NoFapWithBenefits 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hate to say it but unfortunate if you bought in only for you mining. If you make use of it otherwise good, bit if not and you can get full value back, I would.

[–]k1r0vv 0 points1 point  (0 children)

it seams only one graphic card can be used to mine... shit is at the begging stuff will get addressed fixed patched... keep cool and think it thr

[–]adrextor 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The most unpopular opinion has arrived, I have mined over 30 blocks with 400k hash power(with cpu). So cpu is really profitable its just you need to be patient and turn it on. Its not pool mining so we can get unluck or lucky. Good luck!

[–]gverno[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

cheers! I finished my build, quit bitching, and am mining at a little over 200k.
