First, welcome to the club! I started mining a couple years ago and have made plenty of profits out of it. All of the money has surprisingly vanished without improving my way of life, however (though I have higher framerates now). But that’s just me. Earl from our team also does mining. He’s been more passionately involved in mining and for way longer than me, close to 6 years now. Is he more qualified to write this piece? Who cares?
