My friend convinced me I should start mining. Electricity here is 0.05-6 per kilowatt hour, so not that expensive. I think it's a good idea. However, I have some concerns about the future.. What are some of your projections for 2018? I feel like everyone's jumping on the mining bandwagon. Is in theory this a bad thing? Will mining get harder/less profitable because of it? I'm not going to invest hard, I'll just buy a couple of 1070ti's and hope I get the return on them in 3 months. I'm investing only as much as I can afford to lose, otherwise I'd invest more but I'm afraid of things going sideways, especially since I'm very new to the whole crypto world and don't really have a great understanding of how this whole thing works really. Yesterday I've started mining on my 970 gtx just to see how things work (it's only making 2.5eur - $3). I'm using nicehash which I understand mines whichever coin is the best to mine but it always pays out in BTC? What if I wanted to mine ETH? Would I need to use a different software? I still remember 2013 when I was back in college and wanted to start mining and someone convinced me otherwise (I have a nicehash account from back then, but it's empty). I'm banging my head ATM because if I just didn't listen to that A-hole... God damnit! Maybe I have another chance now, or am I too late? But, again, the thing I want to know the most; are things in mining world expected to start going downhill in 2018?
