Hey,
please dont judge me. I have discovered https://www.coinwarz.com/cryptocurrency and I am asking myself why is not everybody mining Casinocoin. Almost 20$ profit per day compared to ethereum which has 9$ right now.

    Altcoins vary more. When I clicked on your link Casioncoin was at $8 a day and ETH was $10.85 for me. I have them set for 0 power cost, because my electricity is free.

    and you can use 10KW/h and nobody would care? XD I have to ask friends my uni friends if one of them has this opportunity.

    do you need a super power consuming 3x R9 295X2 system?

    Uhh...have you checked your hashrate on those cards mining Scrypt compared to ASICs? You're essentially "mining-ethereum-with-a-cpu". If your plan is to not make a profit then I withdraw my statement (props to securing the chain :smile:)

    No one has come by yet. It's a state university, no one cares about anything lol. I highly doubt they check per apartment unit, they have so many and are not paid enough to care about that. They recently raised all renters rent by $20 about a month ago because their utility bill was getting higher (so I'm at $790) for a two bedroom with my wife.
