mona is still going ok, of course whattomine has overestimated its performance (like all the other non ETH coins) but I am now hitting I think about 85-90% of projected performance which is still higher than ETH,
Actually I dont think I am hitting 85-90%.
whattomine claims 0.5 coins possible a day, and I set my withdrawal amount to 1 coin.
It sent out a coin on the 10th october.
Today is the 12th and I currently have with my last and only full coin withdrawn almost exactly 48 hours earlier a balance of 0.79 including unconfirmed coins, but whatttomine claims of 0.5 coins a day should have me at another full coin now So performance is actually nearer 75% of whattomine projects. In fact I think its less than 75% as it wont send until the coin is all confirmed, the confirmed balance is 0.63, so whattomine is over projecting by 37% ouch. Given mona is currently rated as 125%, it means right now I am making less money mining mona than eth.
On average I am getting credited about 0.025 coins every hour or so, but because it relies on luck, sometimes there is large gaps like a 6 hour gap between credits for bad blocks. Nanopool doesnt slow down its payments if there is a bad block, the block performance is just disregarded. They pay on shares per 20 minutes, whilst all the mona pools pay on last N shares per block.
So basically for mona to even match ETH profits whattomine needs to project a 137% profit ratio. this is the point I have been trying to make, its not a true picture. If whatttomine projects 100% for mona, then it will actually pay out less than ETH.
Someone pointed out to me today to look at vivo which I see is at 240%, probably a temporary spike, but I guess if I can sell of small quantities to bitcoin whilst it is spiking it might be worthwhile, I can confirm I was able to sell my 1 coin of mona to bitcoin on bittrex. But I wont be able to convert that bitcoin to cash until I hit 0.01 bitcoin. I dont think I can even send it to another exchange/wallet under 0.01 bitcoin either, so if I sell coins on another exchange and they have similar limits I have a problem.
So as a quick calculation at say 13-14usd value per coin.
I make 1 coin per 3 days (not 2 days as whattoomine claims), thats 10 x 13.50usd a 135usd revenue from monacoin.
Right now nanopool estimates 146 usd a month for 2 gpu's because eth has gone up in value last 4 hours, I think if we assume thats a spike it will go down again to about 132usd.
ZEC was really hard to mine, the algorithm sucks, but it was using nanopool so its payouts were ok.
I will check if bittrezx accepts vivo, if no I will try to get on another exchange, and switch to vivo when I get my next full mona coin sent out, probably another 24 hours.
