Francois asked 2 years ago

Hi, I would like to know if its profitable to mine with the USB Eruptor’s (333MH) connected to a Rasberry Pi. Possibly around 8 USB eruptors to begin with.

Am I correct on calculating 8 of them is the same as one 2.7TH S7 minder, hence the output in bitcoin is the same less the electricity usage? Much more cost efficient then?

Hey Francois,
I’m not sure what the answer to this will be. I’m guessing you’ll have to use a Bitcoin mining calculator and take into account the electricity usage of all miners and Rasberry Pi. Even with 2.7 Th/s it’s still really hard to be profitable with Bitcoin mining. You will probably make somewhere between $30-$50 a month, and that hardly covers the cost of equipment and electricity.
I would also suggest asking this in BitcoinTalk’s mining forum.
