American enthusiast Simon Byrne built a mining farm of 78 GeForce RTX 3080 video cards. According to him, against the backdrop of the rise in the price of Ethereum, video cards can bring owners up to $ 21,000 per month.
Thus, the farm can pay for itself in six months.
At the current price of RTX 3080, the creation of such a crypto farm is estimated at about $ 100,000, of which $ 93,000 will go to video cards, and the rest to power supplies and design. Taking into account electricity costs in Las Vegas, revenues will range from $ 15 thousand to $ 21 thousand.
According to 2CryptoCalc, when mining Ethereum, one RTX 3080 can bring the owner about $ 11 every day, excluding electricity costs. The President of Rosenberg Research considers such a rise in the value of cryptocurrency abnormal.
In his opinion, a bubble has formed in the market due to which many assets are overvalued by 20-30%. It can be assumed that the shortage of video cards will continue until the cryptocurrency boom subsides.
