Unfortunately, I was not that active on HIVE this week. I had my midterms and was also setting up my second miner and solving some kinks here and there. So, I did not have any time for HIVE.
The first issue that came up when I was setting my second miner was that RTP was not allowed on Windows 10 Home Editions, this was relatively easy to overcome using AnyDesk. But there lay the second issue, I could not get a visual if there were no monitors connected. I, at first, started to search for a software solution for this, but all I have found was outdated long since and incompatible with Windows 10. The only way to solve this was with a Dummy HDMI. It is a dongle that mimics a monitor. So, I ordered one and until it arrived, I had to use one of my monitors on the other rig. The dongle arrived, today in the morning and I am thankfully back to using two monitors.
It has been almost a week since my second worker started mining, with the difficulty of ETH increasing it is not as profitable as it used to be but still, it is a good amount of ETH daily.
I pay for the electricity bill and HODL the rest of the ETH, which I believe is a good way to track profits from mining.
Do note that I live in Turkey and electricity here is 0.10$ per KW/H, so profit margins may differ significantly in other countries.
Before closing this post, I want to also address why I am using Windows and not a dedicated mining OS. Simply, the 3070windows is my own personal computer that I use daily, and I am going to give the 1080windows to my sister by the end of summer. I know it is inefficient but that is why I use Windows.
Hopefully, you can gain some insights or something useful from this post.
Thanks for reading.
