hi i would like to know how much bit coin can i mine with an Antminer S5 today. i know it all depends on how much i pay on electricity. I leave in a tropical island where its sunny 98% of the year and thinking of hooking up a solar panel system just to run the miners on.

Hi Eltnopiko,
I think you should use a Bitcoin mining calculator in order to do the math, however you’ll never get a certain answer since factors may vary (e.g. Bitcoin difficulty, Bitcoin price etc.). For more information I suggest reading this post.
Also, the Antminer s5 is a pretty old miner, I doubt it will bring any positive results (although to be certain you’ll need to check out the mining calculator).
