POS just puts the network in the hands of big bag holders/whales. Kind of counter to the spirit of the whole thing in some sense.

Someone at work has a 5700xt reference card, going to trade straight up for my 6700xt. Should get about 5 more MH and reduced power use out of it.
No but the EIP 1559 update will destroy mining profitibility with Ethereum none the less.

Plus Elon wishes he could manipulate the market, the fact is the markets Crypto and non crypto have all crashed for various reasons.

Plus as much as many want crypto to go the markets are still much higher than this time last year, and are slowly recovering.

Hell Matic/Polygon which is the bulk of my portfolio is still much higher than it was 3 weeks ago, so is that even a Crash? It lost 30% but compared to 2 months ago it's still 6x increase.

Sooooo, BUY BUY BUY.

Big whales buying up big. I've HODLed and am just farming more coins. Love this 5k up 5k down business. Easy 20% gains every 2 days. Matic was a good ROI. Bought Luna at obscenely low prices, should pay nicely sometime in the future.

If I didn't want to deal with the tax issues I'd be more interested in trading. Between mining and trading though, more than I want to have to account for at EOY.

The July update may not make eth unprofitable. Less profitable than it has been though, yes. Considering how (with a few exceptions) gas prices haven't been all that great it may not even matter as much as people seem to be fearing.

I just traded my 6700xt tuf for a 5700xt reference card. This may seem like a dumb idea in some sense as the 6700xt has better resale value long term. That said I've pushed up my eth hash rate with it and this weekend will be bios modding the card to get it up to 54-55 MH.

It will depend on the price of eth by year's end. It's expected to be high, so mining profits might still be good. I'm not worried. I see another 7 months of decent eth mining ahead with crudcoins thereafter.

In Canada I'm still unclear on taxes and trading. Many laws are still developing when it comes to crypto.

Lowest mining revenue week since I started. $$wise but not BTCwise. Still very profitable

I traded someone at work straight up my asus tuf 6700xt for his amd reference 5700xt.

I've flashed two other navi cards and had no issues. This time things also seemed to go OK. Copied the straps from 1500mhz up and set tref to 2x. Just like with my powercolor red devil. Flashed it, it accepted it, and rebooted. Mined for a few hours and had some stability issues with what looked like vcore. While in the process of addressing that, the rig locked up hard, and after that the amd reference 5700xt checked out.

I tried all sorts of things to recover it. Spent several hours fighting with it. Put it in my desktop and it would not POST. Back in the rig the computer would POST but the card was code 43 in device manager. Was unable to get it to accept the original bios back, kept erroring out when I would try to flash. Even from a rufus USB boot drive this was not possible to flash back. I thought I was screwed for sure.

What finally worked was using amdvbflash 2.93 instead of 3.04+ to flash the original bios back on it. What a relief! I was about ready to throw this $900 gpu in the garbage. You can bet I'm not going to flash this card again, it's going to stay stock now.

Why did you flash an AMD card? I don’t get it. AMD hasn’t needed a flash since I think 9700 and X800XT days or something. Maybe I am out of touch.

BIOS flashing 5600/5700 cards is a thing for ETH mining and has been for a while. Gains at least 4 MH.

Far as what happened with this reference card best guess would be that it did take the flash correctly but at some point the BIOS became corrupted, probably the last time the miner crashed. When the rig rebooted after that, it was trashed.

Damn, that's some high risk flashing. What hashrates are you getting on AMD cards?

And the 5700 is better than the 6700?

For ETH yes, the 5700 > 6700xt. This is due to memory bandwidth.

GPUs I have in the pool and their hash rates:
2060maxQ - 25 MH
5600xt asus tuf - 41 MH
5700xt powercolor - 55 MH
5700xt amd reference - 51 MH
6800xt sapphire - 61.5 MH
6800xt gigabyte - 61.5 MH
6900xt asrock phantom - 63.0 MH

Eth2.0 delayed to end of 2022 at earliest. What a shocker. PoS delayed. Now miners can mine longer...by miners I mean ASICs
