Cost & Profit

Mining CKBytes allows you to essentially purchase CKBytes at the cost of energy rather than market prices. Mining involves costs such as electricity, hardware, cooling, maintenance, and pool fees.

  • Electricity: Key expense in CKB mining, as the computational power needed consumes significant power. Miners seek low-cost electricity regions or renewable energy sources to cut expenses.
  • Hardware: Investment in ASIC miners can be substantial. Below is the mining revenue comparison provided by f2pool to help you decide which one to go for.
  • Cooling and Ventilation: Essential for efficient operation due to the heat generated by mining equipment.
  • Maintenance and Repairs: Regular upkeep and unexpected repairs are necessary for mining rigs.
  • Internet and Networking: Reliable internet and networking equipment are crucial for mining operations.
  • Space and Rent: Dedicated facilities may be rented or purchased for equipment setup.
  • Mining Pool Fees: Miners joining pools incur fees for services like block rewards distribution.

Profit depends on factors like:

  • Hash rate (Gh/s): As more miners join the network to provide computing power, your existing computing power is diluted.
  • Power Consumption (W) & Electricity Cost ($/kWh)
  • Pool Fees
