right now I would have to mine around 10eth a day just to pay the electricity bill of my mining rig, which at current difficulty makes around 2 blocks a day. In return I have hardware costs, hassle, heat and noise. People are throwing lots of ethers onto the market, which keeps the price around 1,03 €/eth - for now.
Anyone thought of completely stopping to mine ether, before it's too late? I know ethereum is about a distributed, democratic network, but if that means that miners have to lose lts of cash despite providing an essential service to the network (I am not talking of making huge profits), I think it's understandable they have to make a choice.
What do you think, time to pull the plugs?
