N00b Miner Looking for Some Quick Answers

gordonashgordonash Member Posts: 1
Wanted to have a little play with mining but its not something im going to do permanently so just wondered if anyone could give me some idea on when i will get paid so i can quit :)

Currently using ethermine.org and hashing at around 13.8 MH/s 24/7 for a few days now.

I have absolutely no clue how the payout system works and thats AFTER reading the faq.

Just looking to work out if its going to be days or weeks etc, i would quit now but seems a bit of a waste to leave before first payout.

Thanks for any help offered.

    nanopool offers payouts at .05 eth which is the lowest I've found. I'm mining on dual 1070s at an average of 61mh/s and an .05 will pay every 3-4 days. So, at 14 it'll pay every 18 days or so at current difficulty. Once a payout is made you can go to etherscan.io and input your address to confirm the transaction. How fast the transaction takes also depends on your gas settings.

    Ethermine.org pool's lowest payout is .1. if you take out less than 1 eth they charge .001 eth so it's a matter of 25 to 30,maybe 40 CENTS, not a big deal. I'm not sure if they are that great compared to others though. Been using em for a little over 2 months but always seeing the "average effective hashrate" 3 or 4 mh under what your miner is doing sorta pisses me off. I know it's not much but still. All pools may do that for all i know. I'll probably switch 10/1 to test a different pool out or maybe even run ethos or simplemining(whatever the linux based plug n play miners are). Since you're only mining a VERY small hashrate i would suggest what @shavill recommends.
