I've thought about it and even considered one of them cloud mining setups but the reviews were divided. Luckily somebody else (MrDividend?) did it before me and from what I can tell it's not working out that well. Prefer buying/selling on the exchanges. Made good profit with not too large a sum of money before I completely cashed out two or so months ago.

Might get back into it, maybe.

My youngsters are mining 24/7/365 and are happy with their results. It has elevated their household costs a bit via electricity consumption as they are using quite a big set up to mine

You will need an ASIC farm if you want to mine BTC.

We mine Ether, SIA, Zcash and Redd

 Is anyone buying/selling bitcoins at the moment? Is it a lucrative? What sort of % profits/losses are you achieving?

I'm still trying to understand what it's all about!

This is interesting. Do you use a ASIC farm at home?
I am currently using a cloud mining company and can only imagine that having your own server in much better.

Have a GPU farm of note (https://platinumwealth.co.za/forum/Thread-How-to-build-an-Ethereum-mining-rig) in an industrial building/warehhouse.

Then for those wanting a minimalist view of prices, I build this for us (free, no money mahala) https://coindata.co.za/ will make an API available soon.

Seems to have recovered for the most part. It will be a wild ride but in the long run, it can only move up.
